A great price on a otherwise ordinary Electric Toothbrush
September 29, 2018
I recently misplaced my electric toothbrush while traveling and so I've been looking for a good replacement. I saw all the raving positive reviews about this and I just had to try the Sonic Electric Toothbrush by Fairywill! To my dismay, I as quite disappointed as I found the performance of the Sonic Electric Toothbrush to be a bit underwhelming.
Upon unpacking, i was pleased with the design and aesthetics of this Sonic Electric toothbrush set. The gold and black gives a very premium look and feel and the leds look great as you switch between brushing modes. The toothbrush itself was very light and easy to hold; seems thinner than other electric brushes which is nice as the compact form factor makes it easy to travel with.
As far as usage, each mode worked fine along with smart timer as advertised. Where things go awry for me is the actual brush experience; it felt a bit lackluster. I have heavy gum recession so I use an electric toothbrush as they are designed to provide exceptional cleaning experience without all that heavy brushing. Unfortunately, the brush heads felt a bit too rigid and rough for me. My gums ended up sore after several uses even with an underwhelming brush cycle.
Perhaps I have a bias as I've become accustomed to electric toothbrushes that have more strokes per minute (60,000 per minute), but I could clearly feel the difference in how it felt in terms of performance and cleanliness. I also found it odd that the charger plugs directly at the bottom of the brush and it would have been nice if the set came with a charging block.
I believe this would be a great option for those who never used an electric brush before as it's not as robust as other models with greater number of strokes, so this toothbrush is not for me.
-slim form factor
-extremely well priced
-great entry level electric toothbrush for new users to electric toothbrushes
-brush bristles are a bit rough on the gums (regardless of setting)
-charging port uses usb cable at the bottom
-does not come with usb outlet power block
-slower spm compared to others (this may not matter for all users, but if you are used to something with more strokes, this will not give you the same satisfaction)
Overall, if you're in a the market for a very affordable, decent electric toothbrush, this may be right up your alley. If price isn't a concern and you're used to something that feels most robust, you maybe better off looking for a product with higher spm. Additionally, if sensitivity isn't a major concern, this would be great entry level beginner brush for adults and kids. I would suggest providing a brush head for those who may have more sensitivity issues.
