It seems I have a habit of putting “too much” into my schedule. Notice the quotation marks? That’s because most of the time, to me, my schedule seems just right and not too much…but I have everyone else telling me I’m crazy. Once in a while I might feel frazzled by an overwhelming number of to-dos and that’s when I start cancelling things in my calendar, but for the most part, I guess being busy is my preferred M.O. And I bet it’s yours, too.
We are all busy. And that means needing to be efficient with our time, and when something takes more time out of my schedule, well, that can be a deal breaker when it comes to adding whatever it is to my life. Case in point: when I heard that Crest’s new Pro Health HD calls for a two-step brushing process, I thought nuh-uh, ain’t gonna happen.
And you won’t believe what happened next! (ugh, I hate those click-bait headlines, don’t you?)
Well, what happened next is I became a Crest Pro-Health HD convert. This is saying a lot because my getting-ready routine I’ve whittled down to 30 minutes since I’m always rushing to get out the door, or at bedtime, I’m just tired and eager to get to bed ASAP. So to add a second step to brushing my teeth, I have to really think it’s worth it.
What convinced me to try the product is that it takes care of health and, well, vanity when it comes to teeth. Crest Pro-Health HD helps to reverse gingivitis and get rid of plaque, while also polishing and whitening teeth (and don’t we all want those movie-star smiles?) How it works: the two-step system breaks up key ingredients into separate tubes, allowing them to work their best and perform at their peak. Step 1 is a purifying cleanser that includes stannous flouride; you brush your teeth with Step 1 for one minute. Then you spit–but don’t rinse–and then brush your teeth with Step 2 for one minute. This step is the perfecting gel (for whitening and polishing). This second step also leaves your mouth feeling really fresh and clean, like how it does when you’ve just left the dentist’s office – you can actually feel a difference after the first use!
I’ve only been using the product for about a week and it’s really the super minty fresh clean feeling that’s won me over and earned Crest Pro-Health HD its spot on my bathroom counter. I am monitoring the whiteness status of my teeth to see if my pearly whites are getting whiter. Having a whitening agent in my toothpaste is ideal, because I am not so great at maintaining a regular schedule for using whitening strips.
Crest is touting it as the company’s biggest breakthrough in toothpaste since fluoride, so that means it’s a pretty big deal. What’re your thoughts on this new innovation? I’d love to hear from you if you’ve tried it out!
