Looking for something totally fabulous to spoil Mum with or (even better!) to pop on your own Mother’s Day wish list? This toothbrush is IT. It’s hard to believe that I’m writing with such affection about a toothbrush, but hey, weird things happen when you’re over 35 and know how much a visit to the hygienist costs! There’s a $50 Mother’s Day cashback offer on the Sonicare DiamondClean Sonic Electric Toothbrush right now so it’s a great time to invest in beautiful teeth. Details here.
Hate me if you must, but, I’m Becky with the Good Teeth. Hair be damned, I can’t style it to save my life, but I’ve got the teeth on lock. I can’t claim it’s due to an extensive oral health routine (the shame of it), pure genetics. I even hate milk guys.
No braces, no fillings, just bright, shiny, healthy teeth.
I could put on weight (I have), leave the house without makeup (I do) but I’d always have my pearly whites to carry me through. Flash a shiny smile and many a grievance is forgotten, items exchanged without the receipt, late pickups at kindy overlooked………
This was how Becky with the Good Teeth rolled until, approximately two years ago when I discovered my Motherhood Lifeblood – coffee.
And we all know the story from there.
Despite semi-regular appointments with the dental hygienist, I’m talking yearly guys, my once brilliant teeth have been showing signs of staining and increased plaque build-up. I hate flossing with a passion so I know I don’t do myself any favours.
So with this in mind, and a vanity-driven desire to head into my 40’s with at least one part of my body on point, I’ve taken to the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Sonic Toothbrush with enthusiastic abandon.
It’s time to get my bad-ass smile back.
The box itself makes a bold claim – in a fairly large font so you know this is the real deal; ‘Whitens teeth in just 1 week’. I was pretty, freaking excited about this and hoping no-one was pulling my leg as I ripped into the packaging to get the most beautiful toothbrush I’ve seen charging and ready to use.
- Rose gold accents on the toothbrush
- A luxe rose gold charging glass. You simply put the toothbrush in the glass to charge! It’s magic! Actually, it’s not, it’s just awesome technology but magic goes better with a rose gold toothbrush mmkay?!
- A charger travel case that’s so pretty it looks like it could be an evening clutch
Soooo, we’ve established the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Sonic Toothbrush looks amazing and comes with two fantastic charging options. But does it actually clean and whiten your teeth?
It does and it does it like NO other toothbrush I’ve ever experienced.
The first time I used the DiamondClean, the crazy, buzzy, vibrating sensation made me squirm, but over the past 6 days of use I’ve become totally accustomed to it and now it doesn’t bother me at all. Honestly, nothing would bother me after seeing and feeling how incredibly clean my teeth now are.
I mean SHINY clean btw. Plaque removed from between my teeth clean. Just left the hygienist clean. Never had a cup of coffee or glass of red wine clean? Oh, I have no doubt that’s coming. My teeth are soooo much whiter and brighter already I am so excited.
One thing I was nervous about, totally unnecessarily as it turns out, was how the DiamondClean would feel on my gums. I’ve been a solid manual toothbrush ‘scrubber’ my whole life. My teeth never felt clean unless I used Medium bristles (against my dentist’s advice) and as previously mentioned, I may not floss as often as I should. Hence, my poor gums often bled whilst brushing my teeth. Total thing of the past; my gums have not bled once whilst using the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Sonic Toothbrush. Not once.
There are five brushing modes available; Clean, White, Polish, Gum Care and Sensitive modes – switching between them is intuitive and easy via the on/off button. I love the 30-second Quadpacer intervals in Clean mode, signified by beeps. It’s made me so much more aware of exactly how much time and attention I spend on each area of teeth. Or didn’t spend as the case may have been!
The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Sonic Toothbrush is an exceptional personal care product that I now can’t imagine living without.
It’s not cheap, this is true. But, the potential health benefits and future savings on dentist visits are undeniable once you’ve been using the DiamondClean for just a couple of days.
I’m in love for sure.
