Let’s play a game. There will be prizes. Pretty prizes.
How about two truths and a lie? Always a fun one. (For those of you that haven’t played before. I will list two truths and one lie. You need to determine which is which.)
a: I am the world’s messiest neat person.
b: I love birds.
c: I once had an emergency root canal on my front tooth.
What’s your guess? Think hard. I told you there would be prizes, right?
B is a total lie. I hate birds. You can’t trust anything with pointy beaks. Seriously. Someday people will listen to me. When birds attack. It’s bound to happen.
That leaves A and C as being truths. And they both relate to today’s post. Amazing how that works, right?
Let’s start with A. I am the world’s messiest neat person. My living room must be spotless. My kitchen counters must shine. The fridge must be free of finger smudges.
But my hair gel. All over the place. Caps are never put on any product. My toothpaste is a total hot mess. There is crusty toothpaste on the cap so there is no possible way to close it. The tube is always wrinkled. Who squeezes from the bottom? Weirdos.
Nate refuses to share anything with me because he gets so irritated at me destroying tubes and not closing caps. (This coming from the dude that will hop over a laundry basket in a doorway.)
We have a vacation coming up and we are trying not to double up on packing items that we can share (like toothpaste and mouthwash).
hello products offered us some products to test out. Not only are they good for your teeth but they also come in pretty packaging. (Pretty is always important with me. Usually over function.)
How fun are those packages??? hello isn’t just a pretty face. They are the first line of seriously friendly oral care. The products debuted in March. hello promises a friendly mouth! The products do not contain artificial sweeteners, dyes or alcohol. The products were designed by BMW DesignworksUSA, which explains their fancy appearance.
All of the products are made in the USA using naturally derived ingredients wherever possible. The products are never tested on animals. Flavors include supermint, pink grapefruit mint, mojito mint, and sweet cinnamint."
I tried (and am still using) the supermint toothpaste, the pink grapefruit mint mouthwash and the mojito mint breath spray.
I was super skeptical about a grapefruit mint mouthwash. It’s crazy. It’s like this delicious grapefruit taste at first and then a nice mint once you spit. My mind is blown. Seriously. I’m still trying to figure it out.
The breath sprays are quite tasty. Perfect for us non gum chewers. The package is cute and fits nicely in my purse (also a mess hole).
The toothpaste has a strong mint flavor. It was a little strong for me at first but I am a big fan after using it a few times. My mouth has never felt cleaner. The extra bonus is the awesome packaging, which has proven hard for me to ruin. Impressive work, BMW DesignworksUSA. I give hello a gold star for that one.
Now onto C. I am super particular about what dental products I use. About 4 years ago, I was out in the yard with Ike. I bent down to pet him and he jumped up into my face. He ended up moving one of my front teeth. I called the dentist and he popped the tooth back into place and he thought I would be fine. I followed up a week later and my tooth was dying. I needed an emergency root canal that day or I would lose my front tooth. The tooth was saved but it is still sensitive so I have to be careful with the dental products that I use. No issues with hello! It’s also a good thing that dog of mine is cute!
Side note: hello is not for dogs. Ike has his own toothpaste. He was just jealous of the awesome packaging of my toothpaste. He also has a thing for pretty new things. Just like his mother.
