Keeping Kids Teeth Healthy & Strong With Listerine Smart Rinse #MC

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”


We have been teaching our 5 children the importance of taking care of their teeth since an early ages. Especially our two older boys as many of their adult teeth are coming in. We go to the dentist for check ups and cleanings 2 times a year for our four older children as part of our healthy habits. We are also big fans of Listerine products because they are not just easy to use but they work! Even our dentist office uses this product line so why wouldn’t I use what the professionals use, since it is the very best of my family? 




Now that our schedule is in full swing with homeschooling, field trips, co-op, football practice and other activities we tend to be real busy in the mornings getting ready for the day and at night getting ready for bed.  Unfortunately many times at the end of the night we are tired and do not always brush our teeth. Listerine products such as the Smart Rinse are so important for my children because they are easy to use and my kids want to use them when they wake up and get ready for bed   Smart Rinse comes in three kid-friendly flavors: mint, bubblegum and berry shield. Plus they come in fun characters including Avengers, Barbie and Phineas and Ferb!


My seven year old son is the best at brushing his teeth, flossing and using mouth wash daily I just wish my other children would follow his lead.  Using the Smart Rinse Anti-cavity is his favorite. Which is great because it is alcohol free and it provides 12-hour cavity protection which means it even works on my kids teeth when they are sleeping! Plus it strengthens teeth 99% better than brushing alone! 




Listerine has a fun video called Healthiest Habit Heroes on their YouTube page.  Clever ways parents/caregivers go through unbelievable lengths to keep healthy habits in their home.  One of the our healthy habits in our home is to use Listerine products. Aside from the Smart Rinse Listerine has other great products for the whole family:


Healthy White Mouthwash 

Flosses that are flavored: Cool Mint, Ultra White Mint Floss

Gentle Gum Care Floss and the Ultra Clean Access Flosser

Pocket Packs Cool Mint for on the go!

This time of the year our family tends to bake and eat a bit more sweets so it’s very important to BE SWEET SMART ! How is your family caring for their teeth? Are your children using Listerine Smart Rinse?

  7. Those are some great products. I love using Listerine.

  11. we love the Listerine smart rinse for kids. I love that it has the 12 hour protection. I agree, healthy habits start when the kids are little!

  12. I’m glad they make a less intense formula for kids using mouth wash. We like to use ACT here though because it restores soft spots in teeth. I don’t know if they make a kid safe version though.

  13. How perfectly timed. At least once a month I tell myself I will get into a normal Listerine-using habit and then I don’t. Just yesterday I stood in Walgreens and told myself now is the time. – Katy
