Today’s beauty review is a little different in that it’s more of a health gadget and what a nifty little gadget this is!
Lets admit when it comes to flossing our teeth we are all a little lazy but it’s something we should all do every day and that’s where the Philips Sonicare Airfloss comes in. I first came across it on Twitter and was intrigued to how it worked compared to normal floss. It uses air and micro droplet technology to dispense rapid bursts of air and water droplets between the teeth to remove plaque and bacteria. It is said to ‘remove 5 times more plaque than brushing alone with a manual toothbrush and improve gum health by up to 75 per cent in four weeks.’
So let’s take a closer look…
It has a detachable head where the bursts of water/air comes through from and this is very easy to fill up using the reservoir. You can use water or mouthwash, I have been using mouthwash as it feels like a fresher clean,after trying out both.If you do be sure to use a mouthwash that is non alcohol based. Once you’ve filled it up you just press the button and the bottom to turn it on and then press the activation button near the head about six times to activate it. You will feel a burst of the mouthwash come through the head and you are ready to get started.
To floss all you need to do is place the guidance tip between your teeth at the gum line, close lips around the nozzle to avoid any unwanted spray going all over your face and then press the activation button. I found this really easy to do and then just repeated it around my mouth. It is really quick and easy and it states you can do it in under 30 seconds which I was definitely able to do my whole mouth in this time.
I think this is a really effective way to floss and kind of fun at the same time too! I used to hate using floss so this has proved much quicker and easier. It comes with a rechargeable battery built-in so you just need to charge it up say every 14 days. It is priced at £99.99 and is available to buy at Boots.
