As part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias, I used the past 7 days to PowerUp with Sonicare, getting a month’s worth of brush strokes in one day. That means I got over half a year’s worth of strokes in the past week!
What am I talking about? I’m referring to the way I recently upgraded my old manual toothbrush for a Philip’s Sonicare Toothbrush.
I had braces for several years as a teen and during that time I developed good brushing habits. I went through a lot of pain to get my teeth straight and pretty, so I didn’t want them to yellow or get cavities. So I brushed, but there was an area on the inside of my bottom teeth that always felt rough/dirty no matter how hard I brushed.
Years ago I tried an electric brush and hated it, so when the campaign for the Philip’s Sonicare electric toothbrush came around I nearly passed on it. But, I do like to try new things, and stuff can change a lot in 10 years. Besides, I had been reading other reviews on the PowerUp brush and it was all good. 🙂
So I headed off to Meijer to start my PowerUp with Sonicare routine. If you want to know how my brain works while I’m shopping at Meijer, you can see my adventures here. 🙂
Q&A’s about my PowerUp with Sonicare experiment:
Q. Is the Sonicare PowerUp toothbrush really powerful, or a weak wanna-be?
A. It is certainly powerful. You could say that the PowerUp brush gives you a mouth massage. 🙂
Q. Did your teeth feel any cleaner using the electric toothbrush versus your old manual brush?
A. Yes! Even after the first brush, my teeth felt dentist clean!
Q. How long should I brush with the PowerUp brush?
A. The Phillip’s Sonicare toothbrush has an internal timer that turns the brush off after 2 minutes.
Q. Where can I buy the Sonicare PowerUp brush?
A. Meijer and Target both carry it for less than $20. Check out your local Sunday newspaper on 8/4 for a $5 off the Sonicare PowerUp battery operated toothbrush!
Q. What do I do with my old manual toothbrush? It obviously just won’t do for my mouth anymore, should I just toss it?
A. No! Reader’s Digest has a great post on what to do with your old manual toothbrush.
Q. Can we see a photo of just how beautiful your teeth are now?
A. I thought you would never ask!!!
Hubby is always a bit hesitant to try new things. He prefers to stick with the “tried and true” but after a bit of talking, I convinced him to try it out as well. That experiment resulted in my going back to the store and purchasing a package of heads for the PowerUp brush. The heads have colored bands around them to help us tell which brush head is his and which brush head is mine. Very clever!
