Foreo ISSA Toothbrush

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

There are certain things you simply don't skimp on... your skincare and your oral health! Speaking of oral care, have you seen the Foreo ISSA toothbrush?  It's so different from anything I've ever seen or previously tried so naturally i was curious! I've been using a Phillips Sonic Care for about a year now but my curiosity got the best of me when Foreo sent this over.  Aesthetically this brush is super sleek and modern.  It will look gorgeous on your bathroom counter for sure.  Yet something tells me you don't buy toothbrushes based solely on their appearance am i right?  That would be silly... however, i think this beauty's aesthetics are a major bonus!

I'm not gonna lie, i was a bit hesitant when i saw this brush in person.  I mean, it's not at all the traditional bristle style we are all so accustomed to but sometimes it's good to veer off the typical and potentially find new gems!  Foreo ISSA features high-intensity pulsations which are channeled through soft silicone bristles that will not scratch like standard bristles. They generate the ideal amount of friction to effectively remove stains and plaque while remaining gentle on tooth enamel. It's extremely light weight and features a brush head with 3D flexibility to adapt to any tooth surface and can brush even the most difficult to reach crevices. Every 30 seconds the brush reminds users to brush a new quadrant of the mouth and signals when a two-minute brushing routine is complete... genius right?

Other features include:

  • Each charge lasts for 365 uses (i cannot confirm because I've only had it for one month but so far so good!)
  • The brush head needs replacement only ONCE per year!  Whaaaat?!
  • No charging dock is required
  • Eight-speed adjustable pulsations
  • The brush is fully waterproof and can even be used in the shower
  • A two-year limited warranty and 10 year quality guarantee is included

Also noteworthy:

The ISSA toothbrush is BPA free.  It is made from nonporous silicone that resists bacteria buildup, making it at least 35 times more hygienic than regular toothbrushes, which can be home to millions of bacteria.   

My personal impression....  

As previously mentioned, i was quite hesitant to use this toothbrush because i simply could not wrap my head around how different this was from my previous toothbrushes.  However, i've been using it for about a month now and am loving it. Yes, it takes a little getting used to but once you get used to the feeling you'll love it too.  I love that it signals when to move around the mouth ensuring that i'm brushing long enough to really deep clean my teeth.  I feel as though my teeth are very clean once my two minutes are up which is so important.  I do want to try the hybrid brush head because i've read some great reviews on that.  Overall i definitely recommend it.  The only downfall for me is the price. It's quite hefty but then again so was my Phillips Sonic Care and truthfully it's a price i'm willing to pay to ensure that i'm taking proper care of my teeth.
