Well I received a voucher for Boots as one of my Christmas pressies so I thought this would be a great time to replace my electric toothbrush. Oh my poor old Oral B Vitality had run out of it's vitality and was practically on it's last legs, (I know, toothbrushes don't have legs). It wasn't holding the charge so I was having to constantly recharge it but I can't complain as I have had that it for a few years now so it has been good to me.
This one though, wow I'm buzzing even now from such a great teeth brush sesh. I've just realised the difference between a cranky old one and a sparkling super smashing powerful new one. I've gone from 2D to 3D, a bit like a movie but without wearing the glasses and the brush has super flossing capabilities so the worlds my oyster now really. My dentist will be shocked at my next check up, I bet she says 'has someone had a new toothbrush?' Well ok she might not be quite as excited as I am but I will tell her.
I can use different heads on it such as Cross Action, 3D White, Sensi Ultrathin, Sensitive Clean, Precision Clean, Floss Action, Tri Zone, Dual Clean, Power Tip, Ortho Care. I am so going to try all of those depending on my mood for the day. I have actually found a variety pack of replacement heads on Amazon so for the next ten years I'll be just experimenting with different heads (that sounds so wrong doesn't it?).
There is a nifty timer which encourages you to brush for two minutes and the brush gives a vibrating tone at 30 second intervals to remind you to shift around to a different part of your mouth. Every tooth gets a bit of brushing love with this toothbrush. I love it.
I purchased this from Boots for £24.99 (RRP £49.99) so a half price deal there but Amazon have it too at £24.95 so I think thats good value really. I saw some for about £300, what do they do? I did actually say that out loud in the store and expected a sales person to rush over and tell me exactly what I would get for £300. I expect a personal dental hygienist with it free of charge for that money. Alas no sales person just my autistic son who said ' well Babs everyone likes a different toothbrush', and quite right.
I'm happy with my lower priced one, may be lower in price but not low in quality. I really don't need a million heads, a fancy stand, a travel case and smart technology, it's a toothbrush for goodness sake. I am such a happy brusher now.
Thanks for reading today, do come back tomorrow for my Verse for Thursday but for now you take care and.....
