#PowerUpURSmile with the Sonicare PowerUp Toothbrush!


I have had the chance to try the new Philips Sonicare PowerUp Toothbrush for a week now.  I have been debating the upgrade from my manual toothbrush to an electric toothbrush, and when I read that the Sonicare PowerUp delivers a month’s worth of brush strokes in a day, I really wanted to see if it made a difference.  Because, my friends, I might honestly be behind by that much by now.

Gross, right?

Well, you moms know exactly why I say this.  I just had a baby 6 weeks ago.  That tends to throw off your routine.  You don’t even get to go to the bathroom when you want to, or finish a cup of coffee, or eat an actual meal sometimes… much less can you count on a good morning-and-night routine. What I’m getting at is… in the past 6 weeks, there are mornings I didn’t brush because I was hoping 3 am was NOT when I was starting my day.  There are nights I didn’t brush because I probably couldn’t tell you my own name, I was too tired to remember anything except where my bed was.  I’m getting back in the swing of things now, but seriously, I was starting to feel gross!  And that is just something you just can’t seem to catch up on.

Except I think I got as close as possible, with the Sonicare PowerUp.

Really, my teeth feel as clean to me as when I finish up at the dentist.  I feel so, SO much better about my whole mouth, now that I have used this toothbrush for a week.  Not that I’m about to skip going to the dentist, but I think I can face mine a lot more confidently.  He might not even be able to tell that I had a rough time there when Roman was just a few weeks old. ;)

And besides, it’s not just about taking care of my teeth – when you are a parent, the example you set for your kids is just as important.

“Mama, I brush too!”

The Sonicare PowerUp is just rolling out in stores now.  It’s battery operated, and it’s available at Walmart for under $20.  That made it affordable enough to entice me.  I mean, toothbrushes keep evolving (in fact, here’s a cool video that shows how far we have come!), and I just keep sticking with my old tried-and-true.  It was about time for a change!

    I use a boring toothbrush that probably doesn’t do a great job because i tend to get lazy. My dentist recommended an electric toothbrush for my kids, so I’d love to give it a try to see if my brains jiggle out. ;)

  2. Tina Garza says

    I currently use a manual toothbrush and it’s usually one that’s on sale! I know I shouldn’t skimp but some of the electric toothbrushes out there are really pricey. I would love to win this so I can have an electric one like my kids!

  3. Ani says

    I just use a manual toothbrush. I’d love to try this one because I think it would be gentler on my teeth than when I scrub.

    Okay- I laughed out loud when you said, “You’re hoping that 3 am is not when you’re starting your day”. So true, Adrianne!

    Those toothbrushes look super cool. We love electric toothbrushes round here! :)

    I use a manule brush, my husband likes the eletric ones but I haven’t been convinced yet. However I really like the look of this one! I would love to try it out as I get tired brushing all the other sets of teeth in this house.

    I use a cheap colgate toothbrush. I would love to win it for my kids so they can have healthy strong teeth

  7. Sonya Morris says

    My daughter has a cute little light up toothbrush she rec’d from the dentist. I would love to try this for her since she has overcrowding with other dental issues!

  8. David says

    I have always used a manual toothbrush. If it really does perform as it says it does, it makes perfect sense to make the switch.

  9. June Lisle says

    I use a spinbrush. I want to win because it would be cool to try another brand and compare.

    I’m like you….just been keeping to my old tried-and-true manual toothbrush. But the $20 price and something more high tech is definitely exciting!

    As we know that teeth is the first thing that everyone noticing first in our face. If I am talking about my tooth brush it becomes messy to use and whenever I buy a new one it get damaged after one month. The toothbrush that you are talking about looking good for our tooths. But i am not sure that I’ll get this one in my country or not…

    This brush is looking great and flexible. For our sensible teeth this kind of brushes are very useful. I’m using oral B tooth brush and this time I’ll buy sonicare brush because it looks good for our teeth. Thanks for sharing this brush with us.
