Everyone’s favourite at home beauty gadget brand, Silk’n just launched The Silk’n SonicYou – an electric toothbrush that you charge once and enjoy for up to 300 days.
Technically a toothbrush isn’t a beauty gadget but it is a tool that beautifies your teeth and with the assorted colours the Silk’n SonicYou comes in, you’ll be as happy using it as you are unboxing a new beauty treat.
Under the hood
I received a sample of SonicYou in sea blue which is my favourite colour and it was a delight to play with and find out what it can do. Its staying power is impressive.
To begin with, charge SonicYou once and it lasts for up to 300 days before you need to recharge. If you’re a compulsive brusher and happen to brush your teeth more than the conventional twice a day, a battery indicator will let you know when the battery is low but even then, it’ll last for another 25 days. Now, that we liked. And something travellers will too.
So how does SonicYou fair in the task it’s actually meant to do – clean teeth?
It produces up to 37,000 vibrating brush strokes per minute and has 3 different brushing modes (Sensitive, Clean and White), and it goes without saying that it does a great job of removing plaque and impurities more effectively than a manual toothbrush.
The SonicYou is also very efficient and has 2 timers which helps the user brush effortlessly and more effortlessly. First, there’s an interval timer that gives a signal every 30 seconds, so you can be sure that you have cleaned each quadrant of the teeth equally.
Second is the 2-minute auto shut-off timer that ensures that the brush switches off automatically after every use, helping prolong battery life.
What’s in the box
The SonicYou includes 1 medium brush head, 1 soft brush head and 2 brush head cases, with a symbolised brush head so you can identify between them. The brush heads provide soft, rounded DuPont bristles which are suitable for those with sensitive gums and teeth.
Comes in 7 colours
We’ve put SonicYou through its paces for almost 8 weeks and we’re fans. Not entirely surprising considering how much we love Silk’n gadgets over here.
It has staying power and can go 300 days without a charge, it’s whisper silent so doesn’t disturb whoever you’re sharing a room with, and it’s waterproof in case you drop it in water.
The colour assortments means you can find your favourite among what’s on offer which is comforting, and the options extend to personalising your brushing routines as well. You can choose between Sensitive, Clean and White brushing and SonicYou will remember your preference unless you want to switch things up.
