Trips into New York City usually start with me racing to the train station. It’s always hard to find a parking spot, and then I have to buy the train ticket, and get myself onto the platform to get on the train. It’s always the parking that gets me in trouble! Especially for those middle of the afternoon trips into the city. After a busy morning of getting the kids out the door and to school, many times I totally forget to eat anything. Have you ever gone hours without eating? Your mouth gets super gross. Your breath is just beyond wretched. Yeah, it’s not a pretty situation for ANYONE. There’s no chance of having a seriously friendly Hello moment with anyone with my rancid breath.
When I’m heading into the city it’s usually for an event, so it’s seriously nasty to show up with wretched breath. Solving this is always a battle, because most of my mouthwash, and toothpaste brands just don’t last long enough! Then, when I use breath sprays they dry out my mouth, which makes it worse, instead of better. It’s just a huge calamity of errors! Who’s going to save me?!!! Duane Reade, that’s who! My weekly Sunday trip to Duane Reade scored me Hello mouthwash, Hello toothpaste, and Hello breath spray ON SALE to help me battle the bad breath blues.
Since the Little Miss is a fan of pink grapefruit (I know, she use to be such a picky eater, now she’s eating things like pink grapefruits,) we chose the whole Hello product line in Pink Grapefruit! Even better, we got the whole line on sale! Everything Hello was buy one, get one half off. What a score for us! Who doesn’t love Duane Reade?!
A huge bonus to the entire line? It’s 99% natural oral care, has no artificial sweeteners, or dyes. Plus, the breath spray doesn’t have any alcohol in it, so the kids get to enjoy using it, too.
I’m also impressed with the packaging – it’s pretty, and the toothpaste, as well as the mouthwash, aren’t crazy colors that stain everything in the bathroom! It’s rather frustrating walking into the bathroom after I’ve cleaned it, and seeing bright blue, or some other obnoxious color, staining my towels and sink! GA-ROSS. How can something that color be good for cleaning your teeth? Hello products are clear, or white. Love that!
My absolute favorite thing about my new Hello oral care? It actually tastes like Pink Grapefruit! It’s a nice little twist on the morning ritual of brushing and mouthwash-ing! I don’t walk away with a chemically after taste on my tongue. Just a sweet taste of delicious fruity, yet minty, goodness. I’m hooked.
Get ready, because Hello is having a fantastic contest through Facebook! It’s the Seriously Friendly NYC Facebook contest that starts today October 14th and runs through October 28th at 5 PM ET! All the juicy details on how to “Help Hello find the friendliest spots and moments in town” are on Hello’s Facebook page right now! It’s all going to involve sharing your seriously friendly NYC moments with Hello.
If you’re on Twitter, I’d follow Hello on Twitter, too. You can never tell when you’ll find announcements, or information about the brand while checking out your feed! Plus, what company would be complete without Pinterest boards, right? You know I’m following both Duane Reade and Hello Products on Pinterest! Come and follow along with me!
I love that it is natural, but it really cool that is safe enough that kids can use it.
It’s 99% natural. The mouthwash and the spray don’t have alcohol in them, so MY kids are allowed to use it. They won’t use the toothpaste, though. It’s got fluoride in it still. But I’m a fan of the mouthwash for my daughter, she is good about swishing and spitting!!! It doesn’t burn like other ones do, and it doesn’t look like electric blue mayhem in my sink!
I want to try that breath spray! It would be perfect to carry around in my purse. The toothpaste sounds cool too!
The breath sprays all taste good, too. I like the Pink Grapefruit toothpaste. It’s kind of minty, yet fruity…..and the breath spray fits great in my pocket, or in my travel bag when I go into the city. It’s all really pretty containers, too. They definitely put a lot of thought into this line! Hope it’ll be 100% natural in the future!
Pink grapefruit – that’s one sophisticated taste palette she’s got going on! Way to go, Mom! I have to agree with you about keeping the fun, inviting colors on the packaging and the product inside clear and natural. I’m definitely going to be on the look out for Hello products on my next trip!
