I’m Taking the LISTERINE 21-Day Oral Care Challenge! Are You?

Growing up, I had crooked teeth and my smile was something I felt self-conscious about.  It was in high school when I got braces and did everything I was supposed to so that the end result would be a beautiful smile.  Now, I have a beautiful smile and work hard to make sure I keep my teeth healthy, clean and white.  My fiancé and I will be getting married in a year and I definitely want to make sure my smile is healthy and beautiful.





I am excited to be participating in the LISTERINE® 21-DAY CHALLENGE Oral Care Challenge with The Motherhood.  In this Oral Care Challenge, I will be brushing, flossing and rinsing with LISTERINE® Antiseptic twice a day for 21 days!!   To get started, I headed to Target to pick up the essentials – LISTERINE® Antiseptic, LISTERINE® SMART RINSE®, LISTERINE® WHITENING® Original Gel Fluoride Anticavity Toothpaste and REACH® Floss.


Did you know that brushing misses 75% of your mouth?  That’s kind of scary!  Currently, I brush at least twice a day (sometimes more depending on how much chocolate or candy I eat that day) and then floss once a day.  Sometimes I find that I have to brush AGAIN because I notice a sticky film on my teeth.  I like to feel smoothness on my teeth after I brush and I never thought that brushing missed 75% of my mouth.  I have to admit that I don’t rinse on a regular basis, so I am excited to see how that will make a difference in my oral care.  


I love when I learn of companies who give back to the community.  LISTERINE® is one of those companies!  Taking the 21-Day Oral Care Challenge will not only give me a healthy and beautiful smile, but will also help children in need.  How you ask?  For every person who posts a “Swish Selfie” to LISTERINE® Brand’s Facebook page, LISTERINE® Brand will make a $5.00 contribution to Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America® program, up to $85,000, toward their goal of connecting 210,000 children with needed oral health services in 2014.  That is really awesome!!!


I’d like to invite you to get involved in the challenge in an effort to improve your own oral care, and to help children in need, by posting your own “Swish Selfies” to LISTERINE® Brand’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/listerine). Once there, they can learn more about the challenge, the partnership with Oral Health America, and check out a roundup of the best “Swish Selfie” photos of the week.

I received a Target gift card to purchase LISTERINE® Brand products from Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. and The Motherhood as part of my participation in the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.
