With everyone now embracing pinky-brown nudes and earthy plum and wine…
You may be thinking, why is there a toothbrush review on a beauty blog? Well, that’s because a) pearly whites go well with red lipstick and b) I am super jazzed about the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean toothbrush! Read on to find out why…
Now I’ve been using an Oral B Vitality for years. It’s about $40 and you can get it at the drugstore. I thought I was using the Cadillac of toothbrushes. But I was so very wrong.
The Philips Sonicare toothbrush is for people, like me, who love upgraded tech gadgets (you may have a Roomba or Dyson hair dryer or Ninja blender… treat yo’self!) And maybe you want to go to the dentist and hear those magical two words: “no cavities”!
First let’s talk about this DiamondClean brush head. It has soft/medium bristles and really cleans in between the teeth and follows your gumline. I have fairly sensitive gums and I didn’t bleed at all.
The Sonicare removes up to 10x more plaque than a manual toothbrush by using sonic pulses to just knock all that gunk off your teeth and out of your gums. It whitens 2x better and improves gum health in about 2 weeks. Again, for someone like me with a history of sensitive gums and cavities, this is a must-have.
Compared to the Oral B I’ve been using, this just feels more comfortable. It’s not abrasive and my gums actually feel good after.
There are 5 settings you can use on this brush: clean, white, polish, gum care and sensitive. Each speed has its own time (between 1 to 3 min) and differ in speed/pulse.
And another one of those “OMG THAT’S SO COOL!” features is the charging glass + wall plug adapter. Using conduction technology, you can just place your brush anywhere in this glass (that you can also use for rinsing) and it will charge. And the battery lasts up to 3 weeks!
But if you have no room for the glass or are on a trip, there’s also a travel case that uses the same charging technology (USB cord and adapter included).
Stick all the bits and bobs in the travel case and plug it into the wall and … bam it’s charged!
The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean toothbrush may cost about $225 CAD but it is worth every damn penny!
