Road test: Luxury Floss
5 Word review: Coconut Clean Teeth, Luxury Routine
I have always flossed out of guilt but never pleasure… until I discovered Cocofloss in Real Simple about 2 years ago. I try to live by “the little things” principal and if there is come thing extra-deluxe that is within my budget, I’ll treat myself. I can’t really afford the leather Louis Vuitton that looks glorious but luxury floss…. that’s more my speed.
I tried Tom’s floss a few years ago when I was babysitting and was amazed at how it really cleaned between my teeth… but it seemed to ‘stick’ frequently and feel pretty dry. My husband usually buys Glide and that really does glide, but I didn’t feel like it actually cleaned my teeth. I am a sucker for anything Coconut, so when I saw an ad in Real Simple for Coconut Floss… they didn’t have to ask me twice. Their flavors are the definition of premium (coconut, vanilla, strawberry, mint, just to name a few). I loved how they slid right into my tight teeth spaces and REALLY seemed to clean in-between my teeth (AND didn’t break!!). I was utterly committed. After 2 years of unflinching loyalty… my husband tried to test my allegiance.
He had me line up 4 popular flosses I have used previously and some new kids on the block. Let me just say… it wasn’t even a competition. Dr Tung’s turned my fingernails black and my teeth weren’t anywhere near as clean as Cocofloss. Glide breaks after ever 2 teeth spaces cleaned. Radius Floss Sachets are awfully convenient because they are flat but they don’t clean nearly as well (but Cocofloss also makes minis…sensing a theme?? I LOVE COCOFLOSS!!!) . Despite his best try, I won’t change my allegiance. I am utterly committed to Cocofloss and I won’t be jumping ship anytime soon. I will add that C.J. still likes Glide, probably because he is an alien. To each his own.
The last time I was at my dentist my hygienist complimented how clean my teeth were and tried to tell me about her new favorite brand of floss. Can you guess what it was?
