I’ve had an electric toothbrush for years now, something about being able to achieve maximum clean with minimum effort always appealed to me. I am lazy, I brush my teeth in the shower. I know, I know, it’s bad for water consumption but it gives me an excuse to stand under the spray for a few minutes and enjoy the warm water which I would feel totally guilty for if I didn’t have an excuse.
When I was pregnant with Dexter I had hyperemesis and couldn’t stand to have any toothbrush, let alone an electric one anywhere near my mouth so we gave our Sonicare to a friend when we moved home from England and I have regretted it for nearly two and a half years (despite spending nearly $200 on an alternative electric toothbrush). Recently the team who look after Philips Sonicare contacted us to see if we’d take part in the Philips Sonicare 28 day Family Challenge and I finally got my hands on my favourite toothbrush again.
So what’s the Philips Sonicare 28 day Family Challenge? Sonicare toothbrushes are proven to whiten your teeth by up to two shades and improve your gum health within 28 days, buy and try a Philips Sonicare toothbrush for 28 days and if you’re not 100% satisfied you can receive a full refund, that’s how confident they are that you will love the clean from this toothbrush.
I’m not going to list all the benefits of using a Sonicare toothbrush, frankly there are too many so pop over to the Product Page and have a read.
I like the sonic technology which feels different from other electronic toothbrushes and does take some getting used to, because of this Philips has an introductory mode which over the first 14 uses slowly increases the power so you can get used to the difference.
There are 5 different modes to choose from, I brush with the Gum Clean mode which gives two minutes of clean and then a minute for your gums at a lower setting and I really like the refresh setting for a 1 minute quick brush to freshen teeth. But what I love most of all is the UV sanitiser that comes with the Flexcare Plus model. Mouths are gross, I mean seriously gross, full of bacteria and that bacteria ends up on your toothbrush, I love knowing that when I’ve finished brushing I can pop the brush head into the sanitiser and in 10 minutes it’s nice and clean.
My husband and I use the one base unit and have our own brush heads, we were already used to this method from having other electric toothbrushes and since we take the brush head off to put into the UV Sanitiser (it will do two at once) we saw no point cluttering up the bathroom with two brush units which is awesome news for you guys because it means I have one to give away.
