Uber Sonic Electric Toothbrush, A Review

I’ve been using my old electric toothbrush for a few years now and when it packed up (refused to charge), luckily for me, before I managed to buy a replacement, the lovely folks at Uber Sonic (a British Oral Care subscription service), got in touch and asked whether I’d sample their new product.  I said yes, of course.  Here’s what I think of their Award Winning Uber Sonic Electric Toothbrush:

What I like about the Uber Sonic Electric Toothbrush:

  • I absolutely love the unique aluminum design.  It’s so sleek and looks ultra modern and stylish,(not that a modern and stylish looking design should factor in when looking for an electric toothbrush to buy).  But I must admit, it certainly caught my attention!
  • I also like that it’s really lightweight.  I’m used to my heavy toothbrush, so was really surprised when I picked it up and found it so light!  It makes brushing your teeth even easier to do.
  • I like that it’s less noisier than my old electric toothbrush.
  • I also like that it has a 30sec buzz function which reminds you to change from one jaw to another.
  • I’ve only been using this Uber Sonic Electric toothbrush for over a week now and so far haven’t had to charge it again.  It boasts of a long-lasting charge, but I haven’t had the chance to prove that one yet.
  • It has a really soft brush which I wasn’t really sure of when I first tried it.  Perhaps it’s because I was used to my old one, which seemed to have a “harder” and sturdier brush.  But then again, this only made me more aware to brush my teeth “longer” and “harder” to make up for the “soft brush”, so it really depends on you whether you’d think of this as a positive or negative.

What I don’t like about the Uber Sonic Electric Toothbrush:

  • It has a soft brush.  (See details above), as mentioned not really sure if this is a negative, but still worth mentioning.

My box also came with two refill heads and covers, at least I won’t have to worry about purchasing replacements.

If you’re on the look out for an electric toothbrush, why not give Uber Sonic Electric toothbrush a try?  Uber Sonic Brush sets from £19.  With a refill plan of two brush heads from £9 every 2 months and all members receive a free Ubersonic toothbrush and whitening kit every year.  I think that’s a fab deal, you won’t have to worry about having to replace your toothbrush!

What do you look for when searching for an electric toothbrush replacement?

Do you go for design, trusted name or price?

Handy Box to Have: My Buddy Box Review

How often do you go to the supermarket?

As for us, we do a monthly big shop and then of course, little top-up shops for milk, fruit and vegetables probably every other week.  But as much as possible, we try to buy loads of stuff to avoid having to go back to the shops.  That said, yes we use loads of plastic bags which we do re-use of course and we’ve been using the old plastic bags we got when we shopped at Intermarche, from our holiday in France last year.

Anyway, one of my pet peeves is loading up the car.  We try to load it up as neatly as we can, but of course once the car starts, you’ll hear bags falling off, bottles clinking.    No matter how much you try to wedge them together, the bags always manage to fall atop each other.

If you are like me and find that really annoying, you’ll be glad to know that there is a solution to that.

My-Buddy-Box is a handy reusable, stackable box which is my current BFF when it comes to food-shopping now.

It’s very easy to use and store because it comes folded:

All you need to do is unfold it:

Viola!  It becomes a box:

Don’t forget to put the slider in place though, to make the box sturdier and easier to carry.

When out shopping, just put it in your trolley and load as you go. ( Yes, we do eat a lot of rice in our little household).  Just make sure that the stuff you put in the box are the heavy ones, like canned goods and other stuff that won’t get crushed (especially fruit and vegetables), when something heavy is on top of it.

If you have two of these boxes, you can stack them up together.  When we ran out of space, we just stacked our shopping bags over the box.

As you can see, it’s easy to just pick-up and load into your car.

And lastly, one thing I really liked about My Buddy Box is that it leaves our boot neat and tidy(ish).  No more bags falling or and bottles rattling in the car, thank goodness for that!

Can’t wait to use this in the summer!  This will be really handy to put all your beach paraphernalia in it.  In our case, portable grill, beach tent, not to mention bucket and spades.  Usually my husband and I are like Christmas trees with stuff dangling from every free hand and arm, now all we need to do is stuff everything in this box and go! :).

The real test will be its durability:  how many multiple visits to the shop and beach will My-Buddy-Box be able to withstand?

So if you’re tired of using plastic carriers/bags, I suggest you try My-Buddy-Box out and it’s always good to support small businesses or start-up, companies, don’t you think?  What are you waiting for?  Come and try it!  And if you order now, and input the discount code which is DEAN :), you will get a free P&P off any orders.  Click here to order.  They also have a FB page and of course, you can follow them over at twitter too.

What’s your main pet peeve when out shopping?
