Listerine 21-Day Challenge Follow Up

listerine challenge

It has been three weeks since my daughter and I took on the challenge to use Listerine day and night as part of our normal oral health care routine. It’s  been one of the best challenges I’ve participated in. There is nothing better then finding something that really works. Something that you may not have tried otherwise. Don’t get me wrong I’ve tried Listerine before but have never been that great about using it on a daily basis.

For a few days my daughter was running late in the morning and was not using her Listerine mouthwash. I could tell after those few days that she wasn’t, her teeth just didn’t look as clean.  For me personally, my mouth has never felt as clean as it does now that I have made using the Listerine mouthwash and toothpaste a normal occurrence. I highly recommend the toothpaste in addition to the mouthwash. At first I wasn’t too keen on the toothpaste and the mouthwash kinda burned. However after using it for a while I’ve decided the toothpaste is a must. Other brands don’t make my mouth feel nearly as clean as the Listerine toothpaste. Also the flavor grew on me and the mouthwash no longer burns.

I also noticed a lot less bleeding in my gums. Unfortunately I don’t have the healthiest gums and this has always been a problem (which is why I am having a deep cleaning this week). So glad I took the challenge, after all we have to get up our name sake (Shibley Smiles) looking good!


It’s not too late to take the challenge yourself you can still head on over to the Listerine Facebook page. In fact you can take it anytime. You will be amazed at the difference in how your mouth feels once you make it part of your daily routine. My husband also began using the Listerine in the morning when I put a bottle in his bathroom. That and he began using the electric toothbrush I bought him.

Now if I can just get the boys to do the same!

    That stuff really really works. You can even feel it working in your mouth. It took a while for me to get use to the flavor or strength of it, but it is so worth it to make it a part of your daily routine.
