I am excited to have had the opportunity to work with Colgate Total Mouthwash! I am a pregnant mommy who has been thinking mouthwash burns too much to use. I try my best to model good habits for my daughter. She is too young for mouthwash but when I am brushing, flossing, and rinsing I always leave the bathroom door open so she can come hang out. Whenever she is brushing her teeth, I am usually brushing mine as well. It is important to keep my family’s best smile forward because smiles are contagious. So when it comes to shopping, trying out new items, and keeping a healthy smile we are doing a good job at making our own family impression!
Keeping a Colgate Total Regiment is easy! I have had my own challenges that Colgate has helped with.
CHALLENGE: I am pregnant. I suffered from major nausea and bad gag reflexes. I alway have done my best at brushing but I struggled during the earlier parts of my pregnancy.
When visiting the dentist for my 6 month cleaning appointment I was all good! Gums and everything looked good. This was the first appointment I had taken my 3 year old to. It is important to me that she familiarizes herself with good hygiene. If not, it is bad for her health and could be really expensive and painful fix in the future. She survived sitting in the chair and smiling for about 20 seconds. They suggested I come back with her during my next appointment to try again. 🙂
SOLUTION: When having the experience to try Colgate Total Mouthwash I was a little nervous since not all mouthwashes taste good and some burn. I also didn’t know how my gag reflexes would react. I am happy to report that it tasted good and did not burn! Shopping was fun! Be sure to visit my Google Plus album!
I went to Target to purchase Colgate Total Mouthwash. I went to the aisle and found all the Colgate Totals were gone! There was a huge sale this week! As I went back the other down the aisle, I decided I would ask the pharmacy that was directly next to the where I was. You know when you look for something and you look SO closely that you miss the BIG picture in front of your face? That was ME. I walked RIGHT past the special end cap at Target that ALL Colgate Total stuff! Then there were 3 flavors to choose from: Peppermint Blast, Spearmint Surge, and Wintermint Rush. I decided on the Wintermint Rush. It was a good choice! To make my purchase EVEN better I had FREE Target gift cards I had earned by walking in to Target and using a shopping app. Find out more about Colgate by following them on Facebook.
THE TEST: So I finally went home and put the new mouthwash to the TRUE test: The Hormonal Pregnant Woman Test. Guess what not only did it taste good, it did NOT burn, and I realized it was alcohol FREE! Here is what I never knew about Colgate Total:
- Kills 99% of Germs
- Significantly Reduces Plaque
- Helps Prevent Gingivitis
- No Burn or Alcohol
- Freshens Breath
