Bonjour lecteurs! What is your top secret to keep up smiling? I’ve never really thought much about my oral care routine before. I have always been doing it without thinking about it. But getting older sucks! My teeth are not as good as they used to be… So when I got challenged to test the LISTERINE® Nightly Reset, it was time to rethink it all. Fancy reading my thoughts on this nice mouthwash? This is how I got rethinking my oral care routine with LISTERINE® Nightly Reset!
My Frenchie Oral Care
My mum did a great job with me. She was very strict and it was brushing time three times a day. To be fair, I was too scared to end up at the dentist, so I was always making sure that I was brushing my teeth. C’est simple!
Later on (and thanks to the French NSH which is way better, sorry to say!), I got braces. All pretty much covered by the equivalent French NHS.
Unlike my brother, I was rarely at the dentist. I always had a good smile with white teeth.
Still Rocking It In My Twenties
Once I arrived in the UK, I was your typical Frenchie cliché. I did not pay too much attention to my oral care. Even worse (not proud of it!), I was a chain smoker.
In my opinion, it is very much cultural to be fair. I cleaned them at least twice a day and would constantly floss. The dentist is not so much of a luxury in France and I would regularly get a checkup when I was back there. It was not a big deal and part of my life.
Some people might disagree with it, but I reckon all the tea British people drink doesn’t help in that department either.
And Then I Got Old…
Until recently, I was proud of my smile and thought I had some great oral care in place. For me, it was all due to basics: brushing your teeth regularly, flossing, and do a checkup at my Frenchie dentist once a year with a good clean.
But let me tell you… Getting old sucks! Now in my thirties, it is not the same.
And even worse, I noticed that my teeth were getting a bit more yellowish than usual. I don’t smoke anymore and I have a pretty healthy diet.
Grumpy Boyfriend recently went to a new dentist and it appeared that eating too much fruit exposes your teeth to sugar acids! And your teeth then become more vulnerable to cavities…
LISTERINE® Nightly Reset
My partner kept going on and on about using a good mouthwash. I have never personally been a huge fan… I did not like the after taste in my mouth. But because I got to hate my smile, I decided to give it a go.
So what is it exactly?
LISTERINE® Nightly Reset is a formula that works while you sleep to fight the effects of the day. Thanks to its level of fluoride, it helps remineralizing enamel. Used before and after sleep, it also cleans deeply your mouth.
It helps you to reduce plaque build-up and germs too. More importantly, it reduces acid production in your mouth.
LISTERINE® Nightly Reset – My Review
So I have been trying it for over a week now and I must say that I changed my mind about such products!
It feels fresh in the mouth and it is not too sweet. My teeth look better and they feel stronger too!
I like using it in my routine before and after sleep. Another thing I like? My mouth feels fresher when I wake up! Exit the super bad breath you have when you wake up in the morning.
That was a réel succés!
Converted to LISTERINE®
Am I converted to LISTERINE®? Hell yes! You are off to see the Frenchie smiling more!
I am so happy to have tried this. It reaches places a toothbrush won’t and my mouth really feels cleaner! Such a big difference!
I was always so weary when Grumpy Boyfriend was swearing by his mouthwash! En plus, its milder taste is really nice. It doesn’t smell too much and I don’t feel the need to rinse my mouth again after using it.
Will you make the change too for a brighter and healthier smile? Rethink your Oral Care Routine now with LISTERINE® Nightly Reset! It is truly a game-changer!
