As a mom of three boys, I find myself doing the best I can to ensure they get everything they need, while I tend to cut corners on personal things for me.  Let’s take, say… Specialty Tea for example.  I buy the cheaper stuff so the boys can get the things they want and need.  Honestly, after doing it for so long, I kind of forget that I’m even doing so.  With the boys back to school, I realized that I needed to take the extra few minutes to pamper myself a little more.  Whether that means that I’m able to spritz on a little perfume before running out the door, combing my hair before I leave the house, or just getting some great teeth cleaning without feeling the need to rush.  I think there is definitely room for me in this equation of busy days.  So, I figured I would start small, like selecting a toothpaste and floss that would give me that “fresh and clean” feel while also providing me with the confidence and bright smile when I need that little beauty pick me up.  Today, I introduce you to Rembrandt and Plackers.

I’m sure most if not all of you have heard of these two brands.  It’s been years since I’ve used Rembrandt toothpaste, but I use Plackers consistently to floss my teeth and they are the perfect little tool to take with you on the go.  It may seem like toothpaste and dental floss are not the “treat yourself” kind of package, but to me… knowing that I can remove stains, restore my enamel, get whiter teeth and clean between my gums, all without having to take more than a couple of minutes out of my day… well, that make me a Happy Honey.

Rembrandt products are found at most stores and are reasonably priced.  The Rembrandt Deeply White + Peroxide Toothpaste has helped to whiten my smile and doing so all from the inside out.  It helps to restore my teeth enamel and is specially formulated with a rapid-release peroxide ingredient that starts working immediately on contact for visibly whiter teeth.  As someone who photographed weddings in the past, I can tell you that this is definitely a toothpaste worth looking into prior to your big day to show off your pearly whites.  And as a busy mom, I love that this works quickly so that I don’t have to sit there and fuss with trays and gels and all that other stuff.  I still have all that time I can use to spend with my sons.

Retail: $6.99

  • Rapid-release peroxide starts working on contact to visibly whiten deep stains inside teeth
  • Fresh mint whitening toothpaste leaves your mouth feeling clean and invigorated
  • Sodium fluoride strengthens teeth by restoring tooth enamel

The Rembrandt Intense Stain Toothpaste has also been a must-have for me lately.  While I don’t drink coffee any longer I find that I still have the remnants of stains left behind on my teeth.  This particular toothpaste polishes away stains while whitening your teeth.  It’s the perfect daily use teeth whitening toothpaste and is formulated to remove tough stains while actively restoring and strengthening the tooth enamel.

Retail:  $6.99

  • Micro-polishers help to remove surface stains while tetrapotassium pyrophosphate helps prevent future buildup
  • Special formula fights tough stains like red wine, berries, coffee and tobacco
  • Removes and prevents stains while restoring tooth enamel

Of course, great teeth not only come with awesome toothpaste but a great floss.  The Plackers Micro Mint Flossers are just the thing to easily remove food particles between your teeth.  Plackers Micro Mint Flossers come in a cool mint flavor and give you an immediate fresh feeling while allowing you to keep your smile clean and bright.

The flossers are made with Super TufFloss that doesn’t stretch, shred or snap and the pick is protected and can be folded away when not in use.  This is my go-to floss to take on the go because it fits easily into my purse with my other “on-the-go” items and I don’t have to worry about poking myself when reaching into my bag.

Retail:  Between $4.00 – $8.00 depending on the quantity in the package and where you buy it from.

Whether you are looking for a new selection of dental products like tooth paste or floss or just want to try something different, I definitely suggest checking out Rembrandt and Plackers.  They are the perfect treats for your smile and can be found at most stores at reasonable and affordable costs.  So, how about you, do you have a favorite toothpaste or floss?  Have you tried any of these that I mentioned before and if so, what are your thoughts?

When it comes to cleaning our teeth, I’m the warden in our house and I’m constantly on top of the tooth brushing and cleaning each day.  But, I also believe that brushing your teeth shouldn’t just be a habit you develop, but it should be fun and you should want to clean your teeth several times a day.  I think the boys share a similar attitude towards dental hygiene as I do.  They love to go to the dentist (I remember as a kid hating to go) and they enjoy brushing and flossing each day as much as I do.  A few months ago I had the opportunity to try the Foreo ISSA Toothbrush and Foreo ISSA Hybrid brush head and really enjoyed it so I wasn’t surprised when all three of my boys were drooling over the new gadget I got to try.  To our surprise, we got a wonderful email from Foreo asking if we would like to give their Mini Toothbrushes a whirl and today, the twins are talking about their experience with the toothbrushes and how they like them.  I’m excited that the twins get to try the Foreo ISSA Mini Toothbrushes because I think it will be a great tool to have… now I just have to save up so my oldest son Kevin can get one for himself and big Kevin too. lol

The Foreo ISSA Mini Electric Toothbrush is specially designed for kids (or the kid in you).  Like the Foreo ISSA (which I reviewed previously and you can read about here), the ISSA mini brings color and brightness to your teeth cleaning with a fun and bold silicone design that includes their innovative Sonic Pulse Technology.  This toothbrush is suitable for ages from 5+ which makes it ideal for the twins since Luke & Isaiah are 6.

The ISSA mini electronic toothbrush combines Sonic Pulse Technology that includes soft silicone bristles, resulting in extremely gentle yet effective cleaning of your child’s teeth.  This helps to protect the teeth and gums from over-brushing while keeping your teeth squeaky clean and promoting a healthier mouth overall.

What is so great about the Sonic Pulse Techology for the ISSA mini?  The ISSA mini’s silicone bristles channel 9,000 high-intensity pulsations per minute to create micro-sweeps that effectively and gently clean the teeth and gums.

Retailing for $119.00 – the Foreo ISSA Mini Electric Toothbrush comes in four fun colors and the boys got Mango Tango (Orange) and Summer Sky (turquoise).  Each toothbrush comes with a 2-Year Limited Warranty and a 10 Year Quality Guarantee.  While it is specifically designed for children, I actually find that the brush head is a great size for my own mouth and like the size of the smaller brush in comparison to my adult version of the Foreo ISSA.

Most dentists suggest that anyone brushing their teeth brush for at least 2 minutes, 2x a day.  The ISSA mini features a Smile Helpers “Glee” and “Glum” to keep your child’s brushing routine on target.  You’ll see the “Glee” after 2 minutes of brushing (happy face) and the “Glum” will light up if you haven’t brushed for the 2 full minutes.  You will also see the “Glum” if you haven’t brushed in over 12 hours making this a fun tool for the boys to keep track of their brushing habits.  The boys look forward to seeing the happy face when they are done brushing.

ISSA Mini replacement brush heads come in two different types – the ISSA mini Hybrid ($19.95) which is used for heavier plaque buildup since it has PBT polymer bristles that deliver more vigorous cleaning while the silicone bristles remain gentle on the gums and the ISSA mini replacement brush head ($24.90) which is made from medical grade silicone and lasts for one whole year.  Our household replaces our toothbrushes every three months, so I love that the Foreo ISSA mini brush head replacements are not only affordable, but good for a whole year.  The natural properties of silicone and PBT polymer harbor less bacteria which also means you get a more hygienic brush head and overall better oral health.

“I love my toothbrush.  It feels like little scrubbies are cleaning my teeth and my teeth squeak when I’m done.  I want to make sure I get a happy face each time I brush.” – Isaiah

“My toothbrush makes brushing my teeth fun.  I love the color of my toothbrush and the brush feels really soft and smooth.  I love that it cleans my teeth, and gets all the germies out.  I like the way my teeth feel and my gums are getting hand massages by the toothbrush.” – Luke

What makes the ISSA mini so great for my family is the gentle silicone that is used to create this product.  The ISSA mini brush head consists of soft and flexible silicone bristles that don’t scratch tooth enamel or damage gum tissue.  This makes this the perfect brush for children’s softer tooth enamel and for more sensitive teeth and gums.  I also love that this unit is completely waterproof (I wish my sink and countertops were too – lol, if you have kids, you understand) and the ISSA mini is ergonomically designed to be easy to hold with a built-in timer and 3D flexible brush head to reach every part of the mouth.

We also wanted to mention the Foreo ISSA mikro which is currently in Pre-Sale.  Available in five different colors, the ISSA mikro is made specifically for babies and is the only baby toothbrush to combine silicone bristles with gentle sonic pulsations, making it a safe, effective and fun way to teach your children to brush their teeth.  Suitable for children ages 0 to 4, the soft silicone bristles deep clean teeth and the sonic vibrations are delicate to help soothe gums providing relief from teething pains.  The brush comforts and calms babies making brush hassle free.  Check out the ISSA mikro and their presale specials that are going on right now.

Overall, the boys absolutely enjoy their Foreo ISSA mini as much as I enjoy my ISSA.  They have been using it for a few weeks now and I have noticed that they have a little competition in the bathroom to see who gets their happy face to come on first.  It’s fun and the colors would make anyone excited to brush their teeth.  As I mentioned before, I also own the adult version – the Foreo ISSA and it has made such a difference in the way I clean my teeth.  I do not use mine exclusively – I have a few other brushes I use in combination with it, but my gums have been so healthy because of it.  The twins (Luke & Isaiah) have been loving the little massages they get when brushing their teeth and they tell everyone about their cool toothbrushes.  I have noticed that their gums look healthy and their dentist says he thinks this was a good addition to their dental hygiene.

If you have been on the fence to picking up something like this for your kids, I highly suggest checking it out.  They are costly, yes – but considering the benefits, you have something that will be worth it.  Did I mention you only have to charge it for an hour and the charge lasts for 200 uses?  Yes, I consider this a lifesaver for sure.  Foreo is easily becoming a household name here and we love the products we have and will continue to support the brand and their products.  I have tried many different things that I consider to be gimmicky but we are loving the products Foreo offers and look forward to trying out more.

Do you think this may be something you’ll invest in for your kids?  Have you tried the Foreo ISSA toothbrushes before?  You can purchase these products and learn all about them on their website here.

A few months ago I shared with all of you my thoughts on the Foreo ISSA Toothbrush.  I had positive things to say with a few improvement with regard to this teeth cleaning device.  You can read my review on this product here.  While it is something I continue to use, I was very interested in trying out the latest addition to the ISSA range called the ISSA Hybrid Brush Head.  I have been testing and using this product for about a month now and I’m excited to share my thoughts with you as well as my overall review.

The Foreo ISSA Hybrid Brush Head is a Silicone + PBT Polymere brush head that fits on the current Foreo ISSA toothbrush.  This Hybrid is specifically designed for those who desire a vigorous brushing of their teeth but still looking for a gentle touch on their gums.  It’s the next revolutionary oral-care device that is strong on plaque buildup yet gentle on the gums for whiter teeth and a healthy mouth and confident smile.

This brush is interesting to me as it has some of the similar traits to the original with a slightly different design.  The Hybrid Design is specifically engineered to utilize the soft, gentle silicone bristles for the gum area (hello bonus, because that is what I currently use the original ISSA for – massaging and cleaning my gums), but it also integrates the PBT polymer bristles on the inner segment of the brush head to cover the surface area of the teeth.  The hybrid design will not only massage and clean your gums gently, but will offer a stronger cleaning experience on the teeth, making it idea for those with more plaque buildup.  Foreo took suggestions for those like myself and really took the time to develop something that now works for an all over clean.  The original brush head (while something I still use) didn’t clean my teeth to that squeaky goodness I enjoyed but did really massage and clean my gums so I made that suggestion for improvement.  I’m so happy that Foreo listened to all of us and made the change appropriately.

The Hybrid solution offers a unique brush head with both silicone and PBT polymer bristles to help deliver the clean we all want why still offering a comfortable massage on the gums.  With the sonic pulse technology of the brush base, the bristles channel 11,000 high intensity pulsations per minute for effective cleaning.  The Silicone and PBT polymer harbor less bacteria than traditional brushes thanks to their natural properties and you need only replace your brush head every 6 months thanks to that bonus.  The brush has a smart design with a 3D flexible brush head.  Because of this you can reach every crevice of the mouth and the bristles have strong resistance making them durable to last up to the 6 months before having to replace.  What I love is that this is so travel friendly.  This brush’s charge lasts up to 365 days worth of use and fully charges in an hour so you don’t need to have your charging dock with you when on the go.  The hybrid brush head really incorporates all the great things I loved about the original with greater cleaning benefits and still offers what I need.

The brush is is 100% waterproof and can be used with your existing ISSA.  If you don’t have one, then of course – you would purchase the whole unit. It includes all the benefits of the original toothbrush and I still love that I get my two minute brushing timer so I know when I can stop and how long to keep brushing.  The Foreo ISSA Hybrid brush head replacement retails for $20 which I consider to be a steal considering you are replacing your regular toothbrushes every 3 months on average.  I am really loving this new brush head and find that I am enjoying my Foreo ISSA unit much more with the inclusion of the Hybrid brush head.  I am so glad that Foreo made improvements because my teeth now feel cleaner and happy.
