Listerine Smart Rinse Review and #Giveaway

Back-to-school season marks the beginning of new routines and the opportunity to teach new, healthy habits, like an oral care routine. While brushing your teeth is an important habit, brushing alone misses 75 percent of your mouth!

Daily flossing and rinsing with a fluoridated mouthrinse, like Listerine Smart Rinse, are essential in keeping kids’ smiles bright, beaming and healthy. Providing 12-hour cavity protection, Listerine Smart Rinse strengthens teeth 99 percent better than brushing alone. 

We know it can be a struggle to get your kids caring about their teeth, so pediatric dentist and member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Kaneta Lott, has several tips and tricks to get children of all ages invested in their oral care and taking care:
  • Show, don’t tell: Share the brushing, flossing and rinsing experience with your children as they are more likely to imitate behavior they see adults doing.
  • Make oral care fun: Turn flossing into a funny-face contest or brushing into a game of “Simon says.”
  • Reward healthy behavior: Offer rewards for achieving brushing, flossing and rinsing goals with stickers or prizes…who doesn’t love some praise every now and then?
Unlike other fluoride rinses, LISTERINE® SMART RINSE® works l like a magnet to attract the particles that brushing may leave behind and tints the particles – leaving proof in the sink of a cleaner mouth.  Some other benefits include:
  • A special post-brush mouth rinse design to help kids protect their teeth against cavities 
  • The power to clean the mouth beyond brushing alone 
  • A primary benefit of included fluoride – which is an important ingredient to help provide extra cavity protection 
  • And because it’s from the makers of LISTERINE®, SMART RINSE® kills the germs that cause bad breath too
Directions for Use: For children ages six and older: 
• Swish 10mL (2 teaspoonfuls) of rinse between teeth for one minute and then spit out. 
• For best results, use the rinse twice a day after brushing and once daily flossing.
• LISTERINE® SMART RINSE® can be purchased at food, drug and mass merchandise nationwide. LISTERINE® SMART RINSE® is now featuring PHINEAS AND FERB™ in addition to BARBIE™ 
 and BATMAN®.

My Thoughts:
We received the  Phineas and FerbTM Bubble Blast Flavor SMART RINSE® try out with my kids.  My daughter is a pro and loves to use the SMART RINSE.  Now that my son is old enough to use it, he was eagerly awaiting me to open the bottle.  It seemed to make bedtime brushing more fun for him, he was anxiously awaiting for me to pour his rinse into the paper cup. With guidance he did his first swish and could not wait to do it again. 
 As a parent, the flavor was enjoyable, so I am sure they both loved it too!     It is great to see how excited the kids are  over oral care.  Not only does it taste good, fun for them to use, but little do they know they are helping their teeth!   This will definitely be a product I will be keeping in the bathroom for after brushing!
