Just enquiring to BH members which "Electric Toothbrush" do you use, if any, and what do you personally like about its benefits and features? This will help me greatly on making a good choice. Thank you.
I have an Oral B one which I bought from the Shaver Shop. I think they are great and would never go back to a manual toothbrush again. Shaver Shop have a great range. The toothbrush heads are easy to buy and last for ages.
I am on to my third or fourth Oral B - after a few years they don't recharge as effectively - you really notice it after getting a new one!
I've been using an electric toothbrush for probably 15 years and I try to wait for a good special - always have bought the basic model with a 2 minute timer.
Sometimes on special at WW or Coles. Last one I picked up at Harvey Norman - spotted it when walking past for half price at $20!
I'm thinking of going the same way so interested to read what's out there!
I have the Oral B one from Coles/Woolies that I grabbed when it was half price last year (about $20-25 in total from memory). I'd stock up on tooth brush heads (is that what they're called) when they're half priced too as it's reccomended to change them every three months. I wouldn't go back to manual brushing either, my teeth don't feel as clean after.
I'm also interested in the recommendations. I have been using the cheap disposable electric toothbrushes, and it is really time to invest in a proper one.
Same! In fact I was thinking of asking this very question here. We must have ESP or something Rebecca.
The snob in me wants a Phillips brand but the pragmatic in me is like give an affordable brand a try. Decisions...
+1 for Oral B. I'm on my third in about 12 years. I also just use the standard 2 min timer model. They are reliable and great for travelling - they can go up to about 2 weeks without charging. They do lose their charge after about 3-4 years and that's when I replace them. They come with a cute little digital clock that sits on your bathroom vanity and when using the brush, shows you how far into the brush you are and which segment of your mouth you should be on to brush the whole recommended 2 mins.
This time, I'm trying to be better with battery maintenance and am keeping it topped up and charged, only discharging fully once every 6 months like the instructions say. Maybe that'll extend the battery life.
I have an Oral B electric toothbrush and I love it. I find that I'm able to reach the back of my teeth with an electric toothbrush whereas I was unable to with a manual toothbrush. I also love how these's a 2 minute timer so you know you've spent long enough cleaning them.
There are a few Oral B electric toothbrushes available but I bought the standard/cheapest one and purchased in on sale for around $25. I purchase the replacement heads off ebay as they are so much cheaper. I don't look for the oral B heads as I find the no brand ones look the same (without the logo) and do the same job.
The battery doesn't last too long which can be a hassle if you're travelling but at home I have mine on charge 24/7.
I'm after an electric toothbrush too & like Gilded, my inner snob wants a Phillips too! (Although I would settle for an Oral-B.) I'm not sure whether I should get one with a sensitive feature (since my teeth are sensitive), or just stick to buying the sensitive heads instead.
As long as you can get sensitive heads it's fine, I believe, Seashells.
Seashells, I have sensitive teeth too. But I love Oral B toothbrushes! So I purchased the sensitive toothbrush heads. I fell in love with my sensitive toothbrush head the minute I tried it! It was incredibly soft, and cleans the teeth as good as regular heads. I so regretted so having purchased and tried on sensitive toothbrush heads much earlier on! You do have to read carefully though as not all Oral B toothbrushes are compatible with the sensitive heads.
Oral B sensitive brush heads? Who knew?
Hubby usually picks the up the replacement heads but I will be looking out for the sensitive ones. Thanks all!
I love my OralB Triumph. I've had a lot of trouble with gum recession so it was/is an absolute must for me! I picked it up during a cash back offer, which made the high price (I think I paid around $200 or $249) seem more affordable. I've had it for at least 5 years now and it's still going strong! Plus I can always find the replacement heads on sale somewhere, so it's been a really good purchase. Especially considering how much it has improved the condition of my gums. I wouldn't be without it!
Oral B has been my go to for years as kassalee stated that after several years the battery doesn't charge effectively and you notice it when you replace. I generally go for the lower models that retail under $50 and normally on special at places like Chemist Warehouse for under $30. I love that most oral b brush heads fit on all model brushes so I can put a more expensive brush head on my cheaper brush. I stock up on brush heads when on sale.
I tried the sonic chic brush via bh discovery bag last year and this too is an awesome travel battery operated brush with great power and good cleaning results. Comes in handy cylinder for hygiene and great for on the go.
Philips Sonicare - NO, I don't work for them but the difference is dramatic, in my opinion. I used Oral B for years but the last few lasted far less time before the battery proved a problem so I went for a Philips and will never go back. If I could afford it I'd go for the top of the range but my Easy Clean is wonderful. Going on holiday for 10 days you don't need to take the charger - the battery life is brilliant beyond brilliant. I've had mine a few years now and it's working as well as when I got it.
Same here. I had an Oral B for years and then switched to Philips Sonicare. Can't believe it I didn't do that earlier. The actual "brushing" is so bad for my already not so good teeth. The Philips one is vibrating and so much better on my teeth. And the battery life is just so good, I don't even remember when I last charged it haha. Plus my Oral B molded at the bottom at some point...so ya, ew :-/
I'm an Oral B girl, not for any particular reason other than they have been on sale when I've needed them. I repeat the other ladies comments, last 3-4 years then the charge starts going.
Sorry but I have to giggle at this thread, one of the ladies I used to work with actually used an electric toothbrush in place of an "electric toothbrush" when she had left her husband. The " " in the heading instantly gave me a giggle. I'm assuming you are actually talking about an electric toothbrush?
Bahaha! 2663anne... OMG! I'm dying! Since you put it that way, I'm now wondering if I misunderstood the question! Hahaha!
I think I may be sharing the same thought as you Lucrecia! OMG if it's true!
All these great thoughts I don't know
Are you dying? Really
That particular use for an electric toothbrush featured on one of the first couple of seasons of Big Brother Australia. Apparently gets something other than teeth quite clean. :-P
Well I think Rebecca777 needs to step in and clarify what oral device she is referring to - since some of you are on a different wavelength!
Or if need be, start a New Topic using the correct term - whatever that is.
+1 for Oral B and yes the battery doesn't last as long after a few years but the charger is this tiny little thing that doubles as the brush holder so it really doesn't affect me at all. I would not go back to manual brushing because I used to be too aggressive and ended up with prematurely recessive gums. p.s. my electric brush warns me when I'm going too heavy.
Wait, are we still talking about electric toothbrushes?? If not, I don't have any advice on "electric toothbrushes", sorry :p
This shampoo is great for my dry hair! This leaves my hair clean without stripping away all the oils - after washing my hair with this shampoo, it does not have that squeaky or course feeling.
Love using this product along with the shampoo. It is on the thicker side, so great for dry hair. It applies and rinses out easily and has a really nice, fresh scent.
I got this in the last RR and this product does exactly as it says - after one minute it leaves my hair the softest it has ever been! I was really suprised and happy at how good this is.
