One of the things I've been focusing on a lot this year is my teeth! Last year, I finally developed the habit of flossing every day after getting my 1st and 2nd cavity in the same year (EEK!) and this year, I hope to continue incorporating good habits into my routine that keep my teeth around and healthy for as long as possible! I'm partnering with Smile Brilliant again today to share a review of their new cariPRO toothbrush. I previously shared my thoughts on their whitening system and enjoyed the process (check out my review here!) so I’m happy to share my thoughts on another product of theirs.
Just a little background on me, I'm already an electric toothbrush user and currently have a Philips Sonicare toothbrush that I've been using for about a year and half. I truly think its made my teeth so much cleaner and would highly recommend an electric toothbrush. I'm also an avid coffee and wine drinker (aka things that ruin your teeth) so an electric toothbrush + looots of preventative care has become an essential part of my everyday routine.
My favorite feature on the cariPRO is all the different settings! This is something I think is very unique to the cariPRO and a feature that I don't currently have on my electric toothbrush. The cariPRo has Sensitive, Gum Care, Massage, White, and Clean settings. I've really enjoyed trying all of the different settings and trying to figure out which ones work best for me! I love a good clean so I've really gravitated towards the Whitening setting since this one is the most vigorous and makes me feel like I'm getting the best clean.
Another feature I enjoy is the tongue scraper included on the backs of the toothbrush heads. While a lot of manual toothbrushes actual have this, I find that not all electric toothbrush heads include this so I enjoyed the fact that they incorporated this small, but important, feature!
The cariPRO also has a two minute timer that pauses every 30 seconds to remind you to switch to a different part of your mouth and automatically shuts off after 2 minutes. My Philips Sonicare toothbrush also has this feature and honestly, I think it's an essential part of having an electric toothbrush - it saves you so much time and mental energy!
Although I might come across as a productive human being, deep inside, I am a lazy bum and as a result of this, all of my electronics are constantly running out of charge because I'm too lazy to go to the other side of the room to plug them in! (Someone tell me I'm not the only one!) Since I received the cariPRO, I haven't had to charge it at all.
I think the one drawback of the cariPRO is that, like most electric toothbrushes out there, it can be a bit expensive. Of course, electric toothbrushes are going to be more expensive than manual toothbrushes so it's more a matter of what you prefer! For me, I definitely think electric toothbrushes are worth the investment, especially since
In comparison to the Philips Sonicare brush I already own, the cariPRO is a little more expensive, however, I think in terms of value, it's worth more. My Philips Sonicare would have been around $70-80 full price (although I bought it on sale for about $50). The toothbrush I have is on the cheaper side of their line as the price for a single toothbrush can range from $40 to over $200 depending on what features you want! At $119 with two toothbrush heads and all of the different settings on the toothbrush, I think the cariPRO price is very comparable if not more affordable than the electric toothbrushes out there when you consider its value.
Overall, I am really happy with my cariPRO electric toothbrush and I will definitely be buying replacement heads in the future so I can continue to use it! I think an electric toothbrush is a great thing to invest in if you care about the health of your teeth because they are so simple to use and really make such a big difference.
Last but definitely not least, I've partnered with Smile Brilliant to give one of my readers their own carPRO electric toothbrush!
