Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean Multi-Protection Rinse Test Drive {Update}

Last month Big Sister E and I took our bi-annual visit to the dentist and, while she left with a glowing report, a new toothbrush and toothpaste, and a toy in honor of not having any cavities, I left with my head hung in shame after getting my usual scolding for not flossing enough.

Not exactly my idea of a great day, but at least I was pleased knowing that my daughter is learning good habits.

Fortunately, at the start of this month I was able to give my oral health a boost by participating in the Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean Multi-Protection Rinse Test Drive Program and I felt like it couldn't have come at a better time!

Prior to trying out this new product, I knew that Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean Multi-Protection Rinse was said to provide an invigorating sensation during use and a lasting cool freshness after use, all while helping protect your smile from plaque and gingivitis. Sure sounded good to me!

So what do I think three weeks later?

I think it's great! Never having had mouthwash as a part of my routine before, I can now see how easy it is to incorporate it into my everyday practices and have my mouth feeling fresh and clean all day.

Although I won't claim to be doing a stellar job at flossing still, it was simple to keep my bottle of Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean on the shelf in the bathroom right next to my toothbrush so that I would remember to use it twice a day when I brush. Not only did it not burn my mouth and throat like any of my previous experiences with mouthwash, but the cool mint flavor provided a clean feeling that lasted for hours afterward.

Only time will tell (and my next visit to the dentist), but the idea that I can kill germs, reduce plaque, help prevent gingivitis, and keep my breath fresh with this pleasant addition to my oral hygiene routine is one that I'm really happy about. I know I need to floss more (hear me, Hygienist? I know) but for now I'm loving having Crest Pro-Health Invigorating Clean Multi-Protection Rinse as a part of my daily routine!

I wrote this review while participating in a test drive campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Crest and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central Consulting sent me a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
