Philips Sonicare PowerUp Review
I guess you could say that I’m sort of set in my ways. I still listen to CDs in my car. I still watch movies on a good, “old-fashioned” DVD player. And I still use a manual toothbrush. Or perhaps I should say that I still used a manual toothbrush – because I think that might be changing. Recently I was given the opportunity to review a Philips Sonicare PowerUp electric toothbrush. Frankly, I didn’t know what to expect. Would it be loud? Would it hurt or feel weird? Would it make my teeth as clean as my manual toothbrush? It certainly looked pretty and sleek, with its orange handle. I couldn’t wait to try it out.
It was simple to get started – just pop in the batteries (included in the package), squirt on a little toothpaste, and brush! With just a simple push of a button, my Philips Sonicare PowerUp did nearly all of the work for me! All I had to do was move it around my mouth and gently place it on my teeth. The toothbrush did the rest. It wasn’t loud, and it felt comfortable in my hand.
One of my favorite features of the Philips Sonicare PowerUp is the self timer. Once you push the button, the brushes begin to spin, and then they automatically shut off after two minutes. Just two minutes is all it takes! With a manual toothbrush, I would either spend twice that amount of time giving my teeth a thorough brushing, or I would rush through my tooth brushing routine and not clean my teeth as well as I should. Like most moms, I’m always busy and always on the move – so anything that gets the job done right and takes less time to do it is a winner in my book!
I’ve now used the Philips Sonicare PowerUp for seven days, and I can absolutely tell a difference in the way my teeth feel. They feel smoother, and my whole mouth just feels fresher. This toothbrush is able to get to those hard-to-reach places much better than my old manual toothbrush, so I feel like it helps me do a better job of getting my entire mouth clean.
The coolest part of all is that this amazing toothbrush is available from Walmart for only $20! Finally, a high quality electric toothbrush at an affordable price! You can shop for one HERE today!
You know what? I think it might be time for a change. I’ll keep my CDs and DVD player for now…but maybe it’s time to toss that old toothbrush and start fresh with the Philips Sonicare PowerUp. I’m sure I can find some ways to put my manual toothbrush to good use! Perhaps I’ll use it to help remove tough stains from carpet and clothing. to clean my computer keyboard, or even as a nailbrush for the kids when they come in from playing outside!
