Listerine Challenge Results

Last month I told you about the LISTERINE® Challenge in which I confessed my oral hygiene habits and shared how you could take part in the challenge -with a chance to win a sweet 20K. While I had some great habits and was well on my way to a totally healthy mouth, I was missing one key aspect. 

Missing was a daily rinse with LISTERINE Total Care® Antiseptic Mouthwash. 

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been rinsing with LISTERINE Total Care® Antiseptic Mouthwash. Being a good tester, my bottle even came with me to Texas! I didn’t want my results to be misconstrued with missing not one day of rinsing.

Then, this same bottle came with us out camping for May long weekend. I totally admit to indulging in a smore or 5, so keeping my oral hygiene in check even in the woods, is a must. 

As well as rinsing, I also checked in on the LISTERINE® Challenge website, clicking ‘yes’ that I rinsed that day. Then, I was able to spin the wheel for more chances to win prizes – plus earning points for the 20,000 grand prize.

As well, each day I’d get some helpful daily tips on health and oral hygiene. I did miss a day or two in checking in, because well, life is crazy like that. I figure missing two check-ins and zero daily rinses is still winning in my books.

After about 5 days of rinsing I noticed that my teeth felt cleaner, longer in the day. Before, I’d get that 3pm not-so-fresh-feeing in the mouth, when I’d do a quick brush or if I was out, pop in some gum. It was great to have my teeth feel so good, even by dinnertime. To me that said the morning rinse of the LISTERINE Total Care® Antiseptic Mouthwash was doing it’s job.

Through this challenge and rinsing daily, I  also helped to reverse early gum disease*. Many people think that bleeding gums are a result of brushing too hard, but it’s actually a sign of early gum disease! LISTERINE TOTAL CARE® kills 99.9% of germs that cause early gum disease, so while you may notice a fresh mouth, it’s your gums that are healthier too. 

I would recommend this challenge to anyone, just to see the difference that it makes. And you will see results! Though my challenge is over now, I will continue rinsing with LISTERINE TOTAL CARE®!
