Until recently I didn’t think there was such a thing as a ‘pretty’ toothbrush, then I received an email about the Oral-B Genius 9000 in Rose Gold and boy is it pretty!
I just want to point out that since making the decision to be more mindful about the things we are bringing into our home I don’t accept many product reviews anymore. I always ask myself if we really need something before agreeing to it but in this case our very old electric toothbrush had been failing to charge properly for a while and most of the time we were using it flat so the timing was perfect. I did also look into the most eco-friendly option when it comes to toothbrushes, obviously disposable ones use a lot of plastic and don’t last very long so they aren’t great. Disposables made from natural resources are probably the greenest option and we’ve bought them for the kids before but they are super expensive and we found the bristles to be really soft and not work that well. So for us we decided that having one electric toothbrush is the best option, there are things you can do like not leaving it on charge permanently too to help with the amount of power you use.
Although we’ve used electric toothbrushes before we’ve only had the bottom of the range ones so testing out the Oral-B Genius 9000 was super exciting. It has so many features, many of which you wouldn’t expect a toothbrush to have. It connects to an app on your phone via Bluetooth and helps you brush your teeth properly. You can change the colour of the light around the top, I have to admit I am pretty excited about that part! You can even customise a brushing style to fit your teeth, there are styles of brushing to help with what you want to achieve such as whitening or brushing your tongue. It even reduces the pressure if it feels you are brushing too hard.
It comes with a travel case that not only allows you to charge your toothbrush but also your phone. I’m pretty sure there’s nothing it can’t do! Then there is the fact it looks so good. I almost don’t want to share it, or even use it as I want it to stay looking like this forever.
I have actually used it though and it’s amazing, whereas our other one used to lose power when being used this one doesn’t and the light flashes red if you are pressing too hard. I actually had a couple of stains on my teeth and it’s removed them after a couple of brushes, I’m not even joking! I can really notice how clean my teeth feel after brushing with it and it has a big thumbs up from me. I love it.
With Valentine’s Day coming up tomorrow it would make a great gift too, useful presents are always the best in my opinion. I know a lot of people think Valentine’s Day is silly, I mean it is really, but then when you are parents even the simple act of eating dinner together in peace can become a memory of the past so we usually cook a nice meal. I know we could do it on any other night but we usually don’t so it always feels a little bit special to do it on Valentine’s Day. I actually have a blood test in the morning and an ECG in the afternoon so it’s not the most romantic of days for me!
If you want to find out more about the Oral-B Genius 9000 in Rose Gold or purchase one then they are currently for sale in Boots, there is also a little video showing all the features.
