After hearing all the rage about the newest subscription style sonic electric toothbrush, I knew I had to try it! I had so many questions! Probably the same questions as many of you!
What makes this toothbrush different?
Charcoal…wait a minute….isn’t that abrasive to the teeth?
Subscribe? What am I subscribing to? How does that work?
How much does it cost?
How do I get the replacement heads?
I couldn’t wait to order my brush! I know from all of the dental forums I am on that I could use a dentists or dental hygienists burst ambassador code to give me a great discount! I simply went to www.burstoralcare.com and used the dental hygiene promo code FFERVX to get the best deal on my toothbrush!
So my first choice to make was to choose what color toothbrush I wanted. Did I want white or black?? White would match my new farmhouse style theme I’m doing in my house! Orrrrr….I could go with the sleek and sexy black.. Yes leave it to me to call a toothbrush sexy! (DENTAL NERD ALERT!)
I went with black. It was so different and unique! The regular price of the brush is $69.99 but with my dental hygiene BURST promo code FFERVX it took $30 OFF! That’s 42% off!
Awesome! So I hit add to cart.
I also couldn’t wait to try their other products I had heard so many great things about so I also added the coconut oil whitening strips to my cart which were normally $19.99 but it took $5 off making it only $14.99!
I couldn’t leave off the whitening toothpaste, only $6.99 with my code!
Then last but not least, I added the travel case. We are always on the go so this was super convenient! Time to checkout! I clicked my cart button and made sure all my discounts applied! Worked like a charm!
I couldn’t believe how affordable these products are!
So how does the subscription work? For the coconut oil white strips, it let me select whether I wanted 1 or 2 packs delivered every 3 months. I chose 2, I drink A LOT of coffee..
Replacement brush heads are delivered to your door automatically every 3 months for only $6!
That’s it! It was SO EASY! And $6 replacement heads! Other competitor brands toothbrush replacement heads can cost upwards of $25 each!
BURST is able to keep the cost to consumers lower because they cut out the middlemen. The product comes straight from the factory to you! No stores, no extra steps! The savings is passed on to you!
So what if I didn’t love it? I don’t know how on Earth you wouldn‘t love it, but if you don’t, BURST has a 90 day money back guarantee. Love it or send it back no questions asked!
And if you love your brush and want to keep it, but don’t want to keep the subscription toothbrush heads every 3 months for $6 (which you should be replacing your toothbrush head that often!), then you can stop that at anytime as well!
Once my toothbrush got here I was so EXCITED! It was that moment I knew I found my soul brush! It was so beautiful!
Here’s what you get when open the box! Also be sure to check out my unboxing video!
Perfection Delivered! Here’s what you’ll find inside your first subscription box:
1 BURST sonic toothbrush
1 Toothbrush head
1 USB charger
1 Wall socket
And also a thank you card and HILARIOUS instructions. Those BURST guys are too funny! I love their sense of humor! Seriously be sure to check it out to get a good laugh!
Out of the box, my toothbrush came fully charged. One of the coolest features about this brush is that it has a super strong lithium battery. The charge lasts at least 4-6 weeks! A little red light comes on when the battery has 20% charge left and you simply put it on the charger base for an hour and you are good to go for another 4-6 weeks!
This is perfect for people like me who don’t like clutter and who travel. After charging mine I put the charger under the sink so it doesn’t have so it out or travel with me!
So onto the BURST toothbrush itself! This beauty has 3 different modes and one simple button so you can switch easily between modes.
*Whitening mode which has 33,000 sonic vibrations per minute
*Sensitive mode which has 31,000 sonic vibrations per minute
*Massage mode which has 33,000 sonic vibrations per minute plus vibrates as well!
I recommend starting out with sensitive mode so you can get a feel for the sonic vibrations. It may tickle you a little until your gums get used to it. I always use whitening mode since I was previously using a different brand sonic toothbrush.
If you are sensitive you can stay on sensitive if you wish. Play with all the modes so you can choose which works best for you! Massage mode feels amazing to the gums. It’s kind of like exercise to them. It helps deliver healthy oxygen to the cells!
Now what really sets this toothbrush apart from the competition, the bristles! Ahh, those bristles! They are made from very soft nylon and each bristle is individually tapered! The tapered bristles have multiple rows for getting all those hard to reach areas! They get in between the teeth and in all those nooks and crannies so much better than any other brush I have ever tried! And trust me I have tried them ALL.
Each bristle is infused with binchotan charcoal. Sounds amazing but I wanted to make sure wasn’t recommending anything to my patients that could be harmful to them so I had to scope it out and do a lot of research first. I know charcoal can be extremely beneficial. Charcoal is antimicrobial, antifungal and is proven to absorb impurities. It can help remove stain, prevent future stain leading to whiter and brighter teeth! But is it harmful to teeth?
After speaking with the company and doing my own research, I have found that this is not at all like that activated charcoal powder that everyone has been brushing with lately. That can be too abrasive to the teeth. Our bristles are infused with 1.6% binchotan charcoal NANO particles. The particles are very tiny and non abrasive to the teeth. It’s just enough infused in the bristles to have the added benefit of charcoal.
Also in the brush head is a silicone X. This X is a polisher for your teeth so it helps give a superior clean feeling and feels like what your hygienist would polish your teeth with at the dentist. This silicone X also serves as a stopper so that you can be sure you are not pressing to hard on your gums and cause damage your teeth and gums or the bristles or your toothbrush. If your toothbrush bristles get damaged then they are not cleaning your teeth their maximum efficiency so this stopper makes sure your bristles stay in tact!
Some more awesome features of the brush are the quad pacer timer and the 2 minute timer. Every 30 seconds the brush will pause to remind you to move to another side of your mouth. After 2 minutes the BURST toothbrush will automatically shut off. These two timers ensure that you are brushing all around your mouth EVENLY and for the recommended two minutes.
You have no idea how many times I see in private practice that someone is only brushing one side of their mouth!
After trying this baby out, it was love at first brush! This BURST charcoal sonic electric toothbrush is seriously unparalleled to any other toothbrush I have ever tried. I’ve tried all the top competitor brands and the bristles on this brush make ALL THE DIFFERENCE!
As if this brush or company couldn’t be any more amazing, they added a lifetime warranty. A LIFETIME! As long as you are getting your toothbrush head replacements still sent to your door every 3 months for only $6, your brush is covered for a lifetime from the head to the charger! That is insane! That means this will be the only brush you will ever have (or want) forever. That’s it. Think of all the money you will save. And hey if for some reason you opt out of getting the replacement heads, your brush is still covered with a 2 year warranty!
So that is my 100 percent honest review of the BURST sonic electric toothbrush. It was love at first brush! Make sure to use my BURST promo code FFERVX to save $30 on yours today! Feel free to reach out to me with ANY questions! I am here to help!
