Listerine Total Care Zero Mouthwash Review

Sunday, January 22, 2012

DISCLOSURE: I received a full size bottle of Listerine Total Care Zero Mouthwash to review from and Listerine.  All opinions are my own.

I've never been a regular mouthwash user.  I've always found the burn of mouthwashes to be too much to handle.  I would use mouthwash every now and then, especially on days that I felt I needed some extra cleaning or extra breath freshening.  But I could never do it every day.

My husband, on the other hand, is pretty fanatical about oral healthcare.  He brushes and flosses at least twice a day.  He'll rinse with an antiseptic or fluoride rinse at night.  He has the kids flossing and using their fluoride rinse (Listerine Smart Rinse!) each night.  He sees the dentist every six months.  He hasn't had a cavity in years.

Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Fortifying Shampoo Review

DISCLOSURE:  I had received a free sample of Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Shampoo and Conditioner several months ago and tried it out.  I liked it then but only recently bought a full sized bottle of the shampoo.  All opinions are my own.

My hair always causes me problems.  It's thick and has a tendency to get dry at the ends and oily at the roots.  It has a slight wave.  Not enough of a wave for it to be pretty, but just enough of a wave so that I can't call it straight.  Every morning I'm fighting with it and praying that it will act nice for me.  It probably takes me at least an hour to an hour and a half every morning to get it the way I like it.  Or at least good enough that I can go out in public!

I find I often have to switch products every few weeks.  Products tend to build up in my hair frequently.  So a product that may have been working great for several weeks all of a sudden will not do what it's supposed to and my hair starts feeling weighed down and just really oily.  I'll then try and switch to a clarifying shampoo to try and get all the build up out.
