Helloooo and happy Tuesday everyone! Christmas is really sneaking up on us you guys! Like seriously, it’s exactly two weeks away! How the heck did that happen?! As I’m sitting here writing this, it occurred to me that it’s time to start panicking, haha! Anywho, if you’re like me and still have some Christmas shopping to do but just aren’t quite sure what to get for people, fear not because today I’m sharing a super practical gift idea that will be great for anyone of any age – an electric toothbrush! I also highly recommend reading to the end of this post because there’s a chance for you to win your own electric toothbrush (merry Christmas to you!) as well as a discount code for you to purchase one as a gift for someone else! 😉
I’d been wanting an electric toothbrush for a while. I actually ordered one way back on Prime Day and it just wasn’t quite what I was looking for. So when Smile Brilliant asked me to try out their capriPRO electric toothbrush, I was super excited! I’ve been using this toothbrush for about two months now and I love it so I wanted to share it with you all! And it’s a perfect time to do so because I would seriously be stoked to get this as a Christmas gift if I didn’t already own one of my own. 😛
So let’s chat quality and all things dental hygeine, shall we? I’m not sure if you guys remember me sharing Smile Brilliant’s teeth whitening kit with you back in March (you can check that post out here), but this is my second time working with them because I have absolutely loved their products! Proof that I wouldn’t lie to ya. 😉
The quality of this toothbrush is amazing! I used an electric toothbrush yeaaaars ago and my vague memory of it doesn’t hold a candle to this guy. I’m not gonna lie, it’s a bit pricy (that’s why I have a discount code for you though!) but compared to other toothbrushes that are like twice the price of this one, I really don’t know what more you could want for your money. Truly!
But when it comes to your teeth and dental hygiene, I kind of feel like it’s worth investing in. It is a form of health, after all! Besides, you get a lot for your money when it comes to this toothbrush.
Like I said, you’re really getting a lot of bang for your buck with the capriPRO electric toothbrush because it has so many awesome features. My favorite of which is the timer. I’m sure you’re probably familiar with the fact that you should be brushing your teeth for a 2 full minutes. This toothbrush, like most electric toothbrushes, runs for 2 minutes and then turns off so you know how long you’ve been brushing for.
BUT, the cool thing that I really love about the timer on this electric toothbrush is that it pauses every 30 seconds to indicate that it’s time to move to a different quadrant of your mouth. I seriously geeked out over that! You can ask Charlie, haha.
Another awesome feature is all of the settings that you can choose from depending on your dental hygiene needs, goals, or desires. For instance, if you’re trying to whiten your teeth, there’s a whitening setting that vibrates the bristles in such a way to help brighten your teeth. If you’re working on your gum care, there’s a setting for that. There are 5 settings to choose from, so there’s something for everyone!
The capriPRO is also completely waterproof which is great for when you get all messy and drooly while you’re brushing your teeth (you know you do it :P) and need to clean the toothbrush off. You can just stick the whole thing right under the water and you’re good to go!
It’s also extremely gentle which is really important for the health of your gums. I actually struggled getting used to how gentle it was (more on that later), but gentle is definitely not a bad quality! It holds its charge forever which is awesome if you’re a lunatic like me and hate having a charger out on the counter all the time. I’ve only had to charge mine once since I started using it 2 months ago! And of course the charger is included with the toothbrush along with 2 electric toothbrush heads!
Tips for Adjusting to an Electric Toothbrush
I had to adjust to brushing my teeth for a full 2 minutes. I didn’t realize that I hadn’t been brushing for a full 2 minutes until I started using this and was like “are we sure this turns off after 2 minutes?!” because it felt like forever, haha. The 30 second intervals on the capriPRO make it a lot easier to adjust to brushing for 2 minutes, though!
I also struggled with how gentle it was, believe it or not. You don’t have to do as much actual brushing with an electric toothbrush because it does a lot of the work for you. So, I figured out that I had actually been brushing my teeth too aggressively with a regular toothbrush prior to switching over to this one.
I actually pushed back sharing this blog post with you guys because my teeth didn’t feel like they stayed as clean for as long in the beginning and I wanted to be sure that I was really happy with toothbrush. But, turns out, I just needed an adjust period. My partner for this collaboration explained that brushing too aggressively can damage your gum tissue. So what was happening was my gums were actually healing from having been brushed too aggressively in the past which made me feel like my teeth weren’t as clean. Totally don’t have that issue anymore now that my gums have adjusted! 🙂
