Toothbrushes… it’s hard to get excited about them isn’t it? But when SONIC Chic Urban Toothbrush* entered my life I did a little “ooh” at the pretty design and compact, stylish design.
I have an electric toothbrush but if I’m honest I rarely use it because it’s heavy, cumbersome and unattractive, so 99 times out of 100 I stick with a manual toothbrush. The SONIC Chic toothbrush (RRP £19.99) however has the compact and lightweight feel of a manual toothbrush with the power of an electric toothbrush, and it looks pretty too – no excuses not to use it then!
Looks can be decieving and despite its small stature this toothbrush really delivers on cleaning power with the head vibrating at a rate 22,000 strokes per minute! It dislodges dirt and plaque effortlessly yet still manages to be gentle on the gums. If you touch the brush with your finger you will feel just how light a touch it has!
The SONIC Chic toothbrush is perfect for travel thanks to its small size and lid which protects the bristles. Because it is battery operated it doesn’t depend on electricity for charge so it can even accompany you when camping or holidaying abroad; no need to worry about having a reliable supply of electricity or the correct travel plug. All you need is a single AAA battery, which is supplied.
The brush head is said to last between 10 and 12 weeks, after which you will need to replace it. One replacement head is supplied, but thereafter you can buy replacement heads at a cost of £4.99 for 2. That’s pretty good value considering the price of a manual toothbrush or replacement heads for other electric toothbrushes.
I can definitely see myself permanently ditching my cumbersome electric toothbrush in favour of the attractive and compact SONIC Chic, in fact I’m already eyeing up another design that is half price at LookFantastic! Do you like the look of the SONIC Chic?
