As luck would have it, I had just finished applying an organic honey and redmond clay mask to my face (just mixed the two ingredients together), and an attractive young man knocks at my door to hand me my bzz kit!
Included in the Bzz kit is…
Toothpaste: Crest Pro-health
The package states that with regular use, Crest Pro-Health provides benefits including fighting cavities, fighting plaque, fighting gingivitis, and building protection against sensitivity.
I’d like to take a moment and admit something. I did my first shoe slam on Monday. You see, my ladies slo-pitch team awards shoe slams to people that hit infield pop flies, strikes out, fouls out, and so forth. A shoe slam is when you pour your drink into your cleat and then slam it out of said cleat. Just my luck that the drink was a degree away from being ice, so I had to stop mid-way and let my teeth rest. It’ll be interesting to see if this tooth paste helps with my um… My shoe slamming abilities. Taking a break during a shoe slam isn’t too fun.
Back to the tooth paste… It also claims to give you fresh breath with “profresh” for hours. Coolio!
Onto the toothbrush: Oral B Pro-Health (soft)
The package claims benefits including removal of hard-to-reach plaque, reducing gingivitis, cleaning along the gumlines, stain removal via polishing action, removal of odour causing germs on the tongue (has a tongue scraping pattern on the back of its head), stimulates gums (Important for re-vascularizing the gums to promote gum health), and is gentle on the enamel and gums.
Features include the CrossAction Bristles, Tongue and Cheek Cleaner, Soft Gum Simulators, PowerTip Bristles, and Indicator Bristles (to let you know when you should change the brush).
Lastly, the kit included three sample sized mouth rinses:
Crest Pro-Health Multi-Protection
This mouth wash is alcohol-free and its flavour is “Refreshing clean mint.” The directions are to use after brushing and flossing your teeth then rinsing with water. After that, rinse with the mouth wash for 30 seconds, and avoid eating or drinking for 30 minutes after use.
The company, Proctor & Gamble have a host of sub-companies listed on the WikiPedia entry. I had no idea they owned both Crest and Oral B amongst many other personal care products.
