When disgusting seems too vanilla to describe the vileness of a situation, you’ll be happy to have gross potatoes in your vocabulary.Usage: Heid Montag’s lip synch
, cat woman (right)
and halitosis are all gross potatoes.Speaking of halitosis, did you know that everyone gets bad breath at least once a day and that 62% of Americans are concerned about bad breath? New technology has given us one less thing to worry about. The recently launched Scope Outlast mouthwash, Crest Extra White Plus Scope Outlast toothpaste and Oral-B Advantage Floss Picks Plus Scope Outlast flavor
provide fresh breath longer. The addition of Scope will keep you in mint condition all night long should a kiss come your way when least expected. Finally, close talkers are off the hook, sort of. They’re still creepy but at least their breath won’t clear the room. A word to the food-obsessed: If you’re about to indulge in a delicious meal, refrain from using these products until after dessert. They leave you with a fresh-breath feeling that’s so intense, it can dominate your palette.I’m giving away 5 Scope Outlast product bundles! Each bundle contains the mouthwash in two flavors (mint and peppermint), toothpaste and floss picks. Comment on this post by Nov. 12, and you’ll be entered to win.

readers was such a hit, the idea of giving away 2 just didn’t seem like enough. So, I spoke to the peeps at Philosophy and have hooked up 3 winners with the brush, bronzer and lip gloss. Congrats to Kelsey M, Michelle G and Christi S!
