I was bought this electric toothbrush for Christmas, although I already had one, it was getting old, I have had it 5 years! I never asked for this toothbrush, I just got given it by my brother! This is the Braun Oral-B Professional care rechargeable toothbrush which comes in a range of colours, I am reviewing the baby blue one. It also comes in green and pink. Looking on google at prices, it is currently selling at around £25-£30 on places like Amazon and Argos.
This is a good price for this toothbrush, I would have been happy to pay that if I had bought it myself. You only get one toothbrush head though, no spares with it. The first thing I noticed when going to use this toothbrush was how lightweight it is. It is so light, but does not feel flimsy. It feels good quality and well made still, but nice and light so your hand doesn't ache when brushing!
Electric toothbrushes are supposed to clean you teeth better than manual toothbrushes, and I have found this to be the case. I have owned an electric toothbrush for 5 years and when I go back to my manual toothbrush when I have forgotten to charge my electric one, you can definitely tell the difference. When I use this oral b toothbrush, it does definitely leave your teeth feeling cleaner and smoother than a normal manual one, however, noway near as good as my old one, although this cost three times the price of this oral b one. This toothbrush does clean your teeth well, and is comfortable to use, but you can tell its a cheap one.
The head that came with this toothbrush feels soft when it is cleaning my teeth and even feels soft on my gums, it is really gentle, but still cleans really fast and really well. You are supposed to clean your teeth for a minimum for 2 minutes and this toothbrush vibrates when 2 minutes is up. It also vibrates every 30 seconds, which I find annoying, but I think most do this as my old one did too. I usually clean mine for slightly longer than 2 minutes, and the battery on this toothbrush only seems to last me a week, and I have to recharge it again, which also takes a long time, I leave it on over night and it is done in the morning. It would be nice if the battery lasted a little longer than just a week. The toothbrush also has a light that comes on to show that it is ready to be recharged which is handy.
This tooth brush handle is baby blue, and white. The head which fixes onto the tooth brush handle is white, and the actual brush is a small circle about the size of a 5p. It is nice and small and feels comfortable in your mouth, and is easy to move about. This toothbrush looks really nice, even though it is cheap, it looks nice out in the bathroom. The head is a standard head, but you can get lots of different types of heads which fit this toothbrush you are not stuck using this head if you don't like it. Lots of oral b head fit this toothbrush. There is also only one speed on this toothbrush, which isn't too fast or too slow, it is a good speed to clean your teeth efficiently.
The toothbrush, like most other electric toothbrushes comes with a two pin plug to charge it, this is fine for me as I can plug it straight in my mirror in my bathroom which has a shaver adaptor in it, but you will have to buy a three pin adaptor to use this if you don't have one. The cord to charge it is rather short, but this is not a problem for me.
Overall, for a cheap electric toothbrush, it is nice to use, leaves your teeth clean, and it is so easy to use. I would recommend it if you are looking for a cheap one to try, I am happy with it, but from my experience it is definitely worth investing in a really expensive one, as you get such an amazing clean, which I don't feel with this one.
