Not sure which electric toothbrush will really make you smile? Let us help you out!
For many years, the only option when purchasing an electric toothbrush was a standard design with basic features. While some brands follow conventional approach to oral care, they always tend to leave little to the imagination.
FOREO, one of the world’s most innovative beauty brands saw the need for a change, and in August 2014 they launched ISSA, the first redesign of the electric toothbrush in over 60 years. Since it’s debut – ISSA has taken the oral care market by storm with it’s innovative range that features five different models.
Although all toothbrushes claim to be effective – they are certainly not all created equal. Torn between a traditional electric toothbrush with nylon bristles or a next generation model like ISSA 2 from FOREO? Let’s break it down for you.
Your toothbrush is currently sitting on your bathroom counter – still wet from when you brushed your teeth this morning – and if it’s a nylon-bristled toothbrush, there’s a high probability it’s collecting loads of bacteria as you’re reading this sentence. With that being said, a hygienic, bacteria-resistant toothbrush is the only way to ensure a whole mouth clean, and with the ISSA range, it’s totally attainable.
FOREO’s ISSA 2 features a cross-design of durable PBT polymer bristles and ultra-soft medical grade silicone with a flexible brush head. The natural properties of silicone and PBT polymer harbor less bacteria and therefore are much healthier than nylon bristled brushes.
In fact, the ISSA 2 replaceable brush head is so clean that it lasts up to six months before it needs to be replaced.
For standard electric toothbrushes, they recommend you change the brush head approximately every three months, meaning you need to fork over cash four times a year to replace it. If you go with ISSA 2, it’s like you’re already saving money. #WINNING
All toothbrushes clean your teeth, but ISSA 2 features sonic pulse technology that elevates your level of brushing. With 16 adjustable speeds to choose from, the hybrid bristles channel 11,000 high-intensity pulsations per minute to create micro-sweeps that effectively and gently clean the teeth and gums.
The ideal brushing experience offers an invigorating clean that is strong on plaque, but still gentle on gums and the ISSA 2 always delivers that experience with the combination of silicone bristles and PBT-polymer. Compared to regular electric toothbrushes with harsh nylon bristles, ISSA’s technology reigns superior.
What’s the most annoying part of having an electric toothbrush that you can think of? Let me guess…..constantly having to charge it? Thought so.
ISSA 2 features an incredible battery life – a 1-hour charge lasts up to 365 uses!
Yes- you read that correctly. Not only do you only need to charge the device once or twice per year – the actual charger is a tiny USB and won’t take up any valuable space on your vanity.
Unfortunately, regular electric toothbrushes needs to be recharged every 21 days – you can’t even go a full month without need to charge your toothbrush…how annoying.
In this category I think we can all agree it’s a no-brainer which is more ideal.
In comparison to a manual toothbrush, electric toothbrushes are always more expensive, but that doesn’t mean you should be spending an arm and a leg. You’re looking at spending around $220 USD while ISSA Hybrid is priced at only $169 USD. Combined with the fact that you need to buy a new brush head every few months for standard electric brushes, ISSA by FOREO is a steal.
