The 21-days are up. Do I see a change? Have I made using Listerine a part of my brushing routine a habit? Will I keep it up? Yes... Yes... and Yes!
Listerine made a difference that I can feel. By using Listerine twice a day for a brief 30 seconds this is what I've noticed:
- My teeth feel cleaner longer, even after meals.
- My morning breath is a whole lot fresher.
- I smile more - this was a very pleasant side effect of participating in the challenge.
I am really proud of myself (and my entire family). I really didn't expect that this easy, simple, and quick change would have such a huge impact. I already knew that having good dental hygiene was important, but now I know that fresh breath looks and feels like something. It feels good!
After participating in the Listerine 21-day Challenge, here are a few tips that I think will help you step up your dental game:
- Keep it on the counter - the first few days of the challenge were a challenge for me, because I was storing the Listerine in the cabinet. Bad idea. Keeping things in plain sight helps to remind us to do what we're supposed to do.
- Schedule it - if you forget to rinse on occasion, it's okay. Nobody's perfect. Setting an alarm or calendar reminder will help you to remember. After a while it'll become a habit don't worry. But until it does - wait for the beep!
- Take a closer look - get up close and personal in the mirror. Take a look around, so that you can get familiar with what's really going on in your mouth. This way when something isn't right (swollen gums, bleeding, etc), you'll be able to spot it right away.
It's no wonder that Listerine is offering a money back guarantee (offer valid through 6/30/13), they already know that this products works... for real!
