Sponsored. DOES IT WORK? That's the question I often asked myself whenever I saw the Foreo Issa Toothbrush. I would see it online. I would see it in stores. I would see the PRICE...$199! LOL That's where my interest in this silicone toothbrush would shut down and completely stop. So I was very excited when asked if I would like to test it out and provide a review. Sure! Now you guys know I don't beat around the bush with things. So let's first get to the million dollar question! Does this silicone toothbrush beat out my manual toothbrush? NO. Now let me tell you why! My teeth nor tongue ever felt super CLEAN after using this toothbrush. They felt somewhat clean, but not totally clean. Even after brushing twice! Plus this toothbrush, does not do a very good job getting in-between teeth. Of course you have to floss, but unlike a manual toothbrush or electric toothbrush it doesn't reach into those spaces. So, that's the bad for me. What's the good? This toothbrush made my teeth SHINE & GLEAM! They looked POLISHED! This seems to be more of a polisher! It also made my gums feel really good (almost like a massage). This toothbrush is very gentle on both tooth enamel & gums. So this
may be a good choice for someone experiencing any sensitivity issues. The Foreo Issa is a silcone (quick drying, non-porous, prevent bacteria) toothbrush that PULSATES (11,000 pulsates per minute)! It's ergonomically correct (feels great in the hands), has 8 speeds (you use the +/- symbols to adjust the speed) and it only takes and hour to charge (1 charge is suppose to last 6 months). Foreo gives you a USB cord, to charge your toothbrush (the flashing light at the bottom of the device means it's still charging & once it stops flashing it's fully charged. PLEASE NOTE IT ONLY TAKES 1 HOUR TO CHARGE and Foreo warns against charging for 24 hours), but you'll need to either plug it into a USB port or do as I did and use your cell phone (iphone adapter) charger to charge this device. Overall, this toothbrush is very chic & modern. I love the look of it! I love the colors that are offered! But at the end of day, I want super CLEAN teeth & FRESH breath! The first thing Foreo mentions in their manual is 'whiter and brighter smile'. It DOES NOT mention CLEAN! I thought that was interesting. It did give me a whiter & brighter smile! But super clean? Don't expect such. The Foreo Issa is currently on sale at Nordstrom's. It's also sold at Foreo, Sephora and Amazon.
