My life is always a mixture of backwards dated events and holidays, and with the Valentine’s Day holiday that just passed us by we have yet to actually celebrate for ourselves. My husband and I are hardly traditional in any sense of the word, so this is nothing new, but nevertheless exciting. We are going to have a fun and romantic date night this weekend instead of a day dedicated to chocolates and flowers, although he did get me flowers….but hey! That isn’t the point!

My husband is one of the most go with the flow, relaxed, and always ready for anything type of people I’ve ever known which makes our out of whack plans even better for me!

One way we always get ready for our date nights is actually the same for both of us. We know date nights usually end in some sweet smooches (to which our daughters always say “ewwwww!” so it is never as good a time than date night is!) and the last thing we need is some bad breath getting in the way of our only uninterrupted alone time.

Despite our flawless brushing routine, sometimes it just doesn’t cut it. I’d have to say one of our addictions as a couple has always been mouthwash. We’ve tried all types and kinds and always find ourselves coming back to the tried and true favorite: Listerine.


To say we love it would be hitting the nail on the head, it has always been a brand we rave about and use religiously.

This is why it is a staple for date night. Fresh and squeaky clean breath has always been a top priority…I mean seriously…who wants to kiss onion breath?!

LISTERINE® ULTRACLEAN® ARCTIC MINT. It’s the only leading mouthwash with an anti-tartar ingredient and new EVERFRESH™ Technology for a dentist clean feeling that lasts up to three times longer versus brushing alone.

With awesome technology like that, we’ll all be smiling non stop after using our mouths to make not only ourselves, but our significant others happy with the gift of a great smelling (er, or, tasting) mouth!
