6 Week Challenge Results! Did my filthy dirty mouth get cleaner?


I have to be honest, I was a bit skeptical about how much one product could really do for my filthy dirty mouth.

Six weeks ago, I was invited as one of a few bloggers to participate in this reality type challenge where we put the Listerine Total Care Mouthwash to the test.

We were asked to have our mouth and teeth evaluated before a 6-week challenge of using their Listerine Total Care Mouthwash. We had our teeth checked by the renowned dental offices of Doctor Villareal at the Bonifacio Global City’s St. Luke’s Hospital.

Following that was a thorough weekly update of what I was doing and how I was feeling after using the Listerine Total Care Mouthwash.

And finally, after 6 weeks, I went back to St. Luke’s Hospital to see exactly what had happened in my mouth throughout these past few weeks.

The results we unbelievable! I was in for a surprise like no other!

I was not expecting my plaque to go down 78%, my tartar to go down 91% or my gum bleeding to go down 89%!!!! The odor thing might look bad on the chart, but from the start, my odor index was actually low, at a score of 1 out of 5, meaning “there is barely any odor”.” So there really wasn’t much more to go down from from there.




The dentist even asked me if I had gotten my teeth cleaned. I told them that I didn’t and they seemed really surprised as well. They also asked if I flossed a lot, and I had to admit that I missed out on a lot of flossing because of my busy schedule.

Finally, the dentists asked if I used Listerine religiously in the past 6 weeks. I told them that I had used it at least once a day but mostly, I would used it every time after I brushed my teeth.

But even beyond the numbers, I noticed that my teeth and gums do not bleed anymore. This was something the dentists told me is actually caused by plaque and tartar building up and seeping into your gums. I originally thought bleeding gums just meant that I had “sensitive” gums, but it turns out, bleeding gums means you have dirty teeth and gums. So I’m very glad to have them nice, clean and not bleeding anymore thanks to Listerine!




Anyway, I’m a Listeriever (Listerine Believer) now! No more bleeding gums and I’ve never felt so kissable in my life!

So When In Manila, be sure to keep that filthy dirty mouth of yours clean to make sure you’re ready for any kisses that might come your way! Take the TOTAL CARE CHALLENGE yourself to be a LISTERIEVER too!


Week 3: Listerine Total Care Challenge to Clean My Dirty Mouth Report

It’s the third week of my Listerine Total Care Challenge and I’ve never felt more kissable in my life!

Brushing, flossing and rinsing with mouthwash was once a traumatic experience for me. I mean really, who has time to do all that?! But after a few weeks of doing that and feeling cleaner and healthier than ever before, I now have no clue how I did it.

Let me put it in simpler terms: If you don’t want to look like a pirate lost at sea without a toothbrush for more than a year:


Or if you don’t want to look like an old school spy that got shagged in enemy prisons one too many times:


Then It’s really best that you get on with your Total Care pledge to yourself for a healthier lifestyle!

Listerine Total Care Antibacterial Mouthwash prevents tartar to help keep teeth naturally white! A smile is one of your greatest assets. It brightens days and opens doors. Don’t let tartar prevent you from pursuing a life full of smiles!

Here I am flashing my biggest and brightest smiles (note that I did not photoshop this image) –

Ok ok, so I know that some of you are thinking that this picture may be me from my younger years… so here’s another unedited but very recent picture of me showing off that one of a kind smile…


that only a mother could love….

Well, at least my teeth are still white and healthy!



Week 2: Clean My Dirty Filthy Mouth Report

I remember a co-worker of mine named George, always had this pet peeve against that people who did their  job half-assed. George would say that it’s such a waste of time  because though you may have been able to rush through the task initially, in the end, you’d just end up having to re-do the entire job or even end up with more work to do, just to cover up for the initial half-assedness… (is that a word?)


With that said I’m now making a pledge of “TOTAL CARE.”

Total care applies to everything from caring about my loved ones, caring about my planet, caring about both my girlfriends… and caring about my health!

First and foremost with my health would be my teeth. You’ve all heard the dentist tell you that the best way to protect them is do the trifecta! Brush, Floss and Gargle!


I’m on my second week of this six week Total Care challenge of Listerine and we’ll see what the dentist says on my evaluation checkup.

As for you guys, my loving readers, NOW is finally the time to make that promise, to make that PLEDGE to yourself to prevent plaque buildup! Reduce that bad plaque, which often leads to serious oral problems! Why wait until it’s too late… your teeth should not be left uncared for!

To help you out! I’m giving away ONE LISTERINE GIFT PACK to the comment with the BEST PLEDGE!

My second pledge would now be to make sure I move my cat out of the way before brushing my teeth….
