A few months ago I shared my experience taking the Listerine 21 Day Challenge. I’m happy to report that the challenge did turn into a habit and I’m still swishing away. I did choose to switch to Listerine Total Care Zero because it is alcohol free, but still contains six unique benefits in one bottle. Swishing twice a day with Listerine Total Care Zero helps prevent cavities, restores enamel, strengthens teeth, kills bad breath germs, cleans the whole mouth, and freshens breath.
I also decided it was time to expand my oldest daughter’s oral care habits to include rinsing with mouthwash and so she has been using Listerine Smart Rinse. Alleigh has always been a great brusher and even uses floss without giving a hassle, but I knew she could still be leaving food particles behind. Just I expected she would, Alleigh jumped right on board when she saw Elsa, Anna, and Olaf on the bottle! Now that she is swishing with Listerine Smart Rinse I am no longer worried about those hard to reach places that brushing might miss. Plus she really likes that the food particles and debris becomes tinted so when she spits the proof is in the sink that her mouth is cleaner.
With the grown-ups using Listerine Total Care Zero and the kiddos using Listerine Smart Rinse I am confident that the mouths in my family will be totally taken care of, but what about the rest of them? Since we basically skipped Spring and jumped head first into Summer – lovely Ohio weather – it’s time to stock up on the essentials. Walgreens is my one stop shop because they have everything I need to get ready for summer with a wide range of wellness products.
Did you know that sunscreen has an expiration date? For this reason at the beginning of each summer I toss out all the old sunscreen bottles and buy new because I want my family to be protected from harmful UV rays as much as possible. I especially like the Neutrogena CoolDry Sport line because it is water resistant for sixty minutes. Plus the new MICROMESH technology creates a breathable barrier allowing sweat to pass through the sunscreen and evaporate leaving skin feeling cool. This is perfect for Alleigh’s Saturday afternoon soccer games.
We also always stay stocked up on BAND-AID Brand Adhesive Bandages and Neosporin. With four little ones there is always someone with a boo-boo in our house. The decorative character bandages are always a favorite amongst our girls – especially Hello Kitty and Frozen. In fact it seems that just applying a character themed BAND-AID can instantly heal any ailment they might face… whether it be real or imaginary, hehe. However, during the summer I tend to lean towards using BAND-AID’s Water Block Plus bandages since my girls are constantly in or around water whether it be swim lessons, running through the sprinkler, or zooming down the slip n slide. I love that they are 100% waterproof shielding out water, dirt, and germs even when wet.
Make sure that you’re family is totally taken care of this summer by heading to Walgreens and stocking up on all the essentials like Listerine Total Care Zero, Listerine Smart Rinse, sunscreen, BAND-AID adhesive bandages, and lots more wellness products. Plus later this month join me at a twitter party on Wednesday, May 27th at 12PM EST to chat all about Listerine!
What summer time essentials will you be stocking up on?
