Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

Swish your way to a P10,000 shopping spree at Forever 21!

I’m not that big on mouthwash because the stuff tastes awful. You know it’s true! Maybe it’s just me but using most mouthwashes these days is equivalent to mild torture - it stings your mouth and leaves it with a burning sensation for a while after you spit it out. That’s not really something I want to subject myself to on a regular basis.

I do however still use mouthwash every now and then, particularly when I want my breath to be fresher for a few more hours. It’s really useful when I’m going to a meeting or an event where I need to be at my most confident.

Still, I know, I know, we should all use mouthwash everyday. It goes beyond giving us fresh breath - it also helps with preventing plaque build-up and tooth decay. It’s just one of those unpleasant things you have to live with I guess...but not really. It seems that I’m not the only one with ~issues~ so Swish swooped down to solve the problem!

There are three neat things that sets Swish apart from other mouthwashes that I’ve tried before.

  1. Swish is super fun to gargle, so I can actually swish it around for a good 30 seconds (and more!) without wanting to throw it up. It’s because these mouthwashes don’t have any alcohol content.

  2. It has cute flavors! How many mouthwashes do you know has cinnamon and mangosteen flavors? Huh? Huh? That totally blew my mind.

  3. The bacteria-killing action is noticeable in the sense that even though it’s been hours and I’ve already eaten, my breath doesn’t turn bad.

So there. I have quite a few Swish bottles here that I’ll probably use up. My favorite flavor is Mangosteen Mint because it’s the sweetest out of the bunch and it’s an unforgiving shade of pink. Win win.

Speaking of win-win situations, I’d like to announce an awesome contest courtesy of Swish! The winner gets a P10,000 shopping spree at Forever 21! It’s super easy to join.
