I’m not sure about you, but my mother is possibly the hardest person in the world to buy a gift for. She knows exactly what she likes, so choosing the perfect gift can feel a little stressful – which is exactly where Oral-B’s Genius X in Rose Gold comes in. The most stylish electric toothbrush I’ve seen so far, you can choose from blush pink (my choice), rose gold or black. Prior to gifting the brush, I’ve downloaded the Oral-B app onto my mum’s phone (I’ve hidden it away in an unused folder), as the brush comes equipped with AI technology.
It’s this technology which really sets the Oral-B Genius X apart from the crowd. Once downloaded, the app and the brush work together to see exactly where you’re brushing, where you need to pay a little more attention, and even lets you know if you’re brushing a little too heavily. It’s a genius addition to your morning routine, and through continued use, the smart brushing can help maintain a healthy mouth and smile – Oral-B says this will even cut dental bills. Talk about the gift which keeps on giving! It’s this AI, which logs how long you spend brushing each area of the mouth, comparing it to the data of other Oral-B users, and it can work
This AI logs how long you spend brushing each area of the mouth, comparing it to the data of other Oral-B users, and it can work In addition to the Oral-B Genius X’s sleek looks and impressive tech, it’s incredibly easy to use. There are a number of settings to choose from, ranging from gentle to whitening, so you can adjust your brushing to your own individual needs.
Depending on your choices, the icons on the front light up, and when connected to the app, you can even choose what colour the brush lights up with. I’m a huge fan of the fact that it keeps you brushing for the full 2 minutes recommended by dentists (most people tend to brush for only 30 seconds) as I’m easily distracted in the mornings.
The round brush head removes up to 100% of plaque buildup along the gum line, meaning healthier gums and cleaner teeth. It also allows you to really control your movements, and focus on each individual tooth. I know I’ve been pressing a little too hard, but the brush reminds you to relax a little thanks to a red light and subtle shudder.
Rather incredibly, a single charge will give you about two weeks of charge, and the toothbrush comes with a USC chargeable travel case, which will keep your toothbrush charged throughout your travels, as well as a regular charging station which you can stash in your bathroom.
For best results, Oral-B recommend that the brush should be used alongside their 3D White Luxe toothpaste. Designed to remove up to 100% of surface stains, the combination of supercharged Genius X toothbrush and 3D White Luxe toothpaste is the perfect way to gift the healthiest (and best looking) smile for mum this Mother’s Day.
Oral-B Genius-X toothbrush has an RRP of £340, and you can find it here (UK) and here (US)
