Toothbrush TestingFace it. Part of being healthy means making sure your mouth is healthy. It’s one of those things that impacts your whole. That being said, can we talk toothbrushes?

sonicareI’ve been a manual toothbrush girl for years. Sure, I dabbled in battery operated toothbrushes, but I just didn’t fall in love. So manual brushes have been chilling in my toothbrush holder for years. I diligently replace my brush and haven’t been looking for anything different — I’m happy with my manual toothbrush.

Still, recently I was asked to give the Philips Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush a try and I agreed. (Seriously. Why not?) It’s a battery-operated toothbrush with a head like a manual one — not that far off from what I was already using. And it promises “a month’s worth of brush strokes in a day.” It sounded intriguing.

Setting a high bar there, no?

So I tried it. For a week. Twice a day.

From the first brushing, I could tell that this toothbrush is something special. There’s something about the vibrations of the Philips Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush that just does an amazing job of cleaning teeth. It adds a whole new dimension to the whole brushing experience, leaving teeth feeling smooth and clean.

Even better, the slim toothbrush head fits easily into all the far-reaching areas of the mouth. Every time I finished with my two minutes of brushing, I marveled at how darn clean my mouth felt.

That’s a big thing. And, um, I’ve been converted.

One more thing I love? When the brush gets all used up, you can just replace the head on this brush. Easy peasy. It’s available for less than $20 at stores including Bed, Bath, and Beyond (hint: use a coupon!!).

Oh, and one more thing … one lucky Sarah’s Cucina Bella reader gets their very own Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush too. See below for details, and to enter.

    I want to try the sonicare toothbrush because I have never tried one of their electric toothbrushes. I think it will be a great toothbrush.

    I really should try it. I’m a manual girl all the way – a battery-powered virgin!

  5. melanie says:

    I would give it to my son. We are working hard on brushing. He has some sensory issues and brushing has always been a challenge.

  6. Brandie says:

    It was so great hearing about your experience, Sarah! I’ve been a lifelong manual brush user and after all the great reviews of the PowerUp, both my husband and I are going to buy one.

  7. Hikaru says:

    I bought one to take home with me to Sydney and now I can’t find any brush heads that is suitable for the Sonic care powerup. Foolish me I forgot to buy spare brush heads thinking I probably wouldn’t like it.

    Do you know if the sonicare powerup toothbrushes take the other sonicare brush heads from the other phillips range? Coz thats pretty much what we have over here..
