[Sponsored Review]: Kiss You Ionic Toothbrush + Dentiste Toothpaste

I'm always conscious about how I smell after I wake up. I usually keep my mouth shut until I brush. I don't like minty breath but that's no doubt better than morning (aka bad) breath hahaha.

Fresh at night, fresh in the morning. 
- Dentiste toothpaste


Trial test!

The packaging

Boy I'm impressed. Unlike your conventional squeeze tube toothpaste, Dentiste is designed with a pump dispenser. It is definitely more hygienic and you get the same amount of toothpaste every single time. Yes, I'm one of the lazy people who squeezes from the middle/top and end up wasting tons of toothpaste. I can't comment on whether this design will be get every bit out of the container.
Comes in a hard sturdy bottle. It is pretty heavy though!


Stars: ★



Cleaning effect

Teeth feel clean after using. In fact I don't feel there's as much plague as before. Teeth still feel 'smooth' hours after using it (after breakfast and lunch). Not much whitening observed but I don't think they made this toothpaste for that.


Stars: ★



Fresh breath

I'm sitting on the fence for this. I've been sick for a while so I can't tell whether it really helps. You know when you're sick you wake up with that bitter, disgusting taste in your mouth?so KIV!


Stars: -



Pricing:

It is considered more expensive than the usual toothpastes available in the market.


Stars: ★




The verdict:

Dentiste toothpaste comes with a higher price tag. I suggest you pick up a sample from TSS before deciding. A cheaper alternative will be the normal squeeze tube form. They are more economical. However, I can't deny how convenient and hygienic the pump dispenser is. Plus I don't have to squeeze toothpaste! I really don't like squeezing toothpastes.
It cleans well, probably even better than a lot of toothpastes I've used. No whitening though :(
This is not a fair representation as I'm not well enough to test the key function of this toothpaste.
Rating: 7/10 (KIV)



Wait wait, I've another product to talk about! Still about oral hygiene!



Kiss You Ionic Toothbrush
What: Ionic Toothbrush
Brush type: Flat/Fine
Price: $10
Where to get: Watsons



How it works:






How to use:

1. Press your wet finger on the metal sensor of the toothbrush. It will release the ions.
2. Toothpaste, brush as per normal!



Additional Info:

There's a little button for you to check whether your toothbrush is still functioning/has it ran out of battery.
You can't replace the battery; hence you need to get a new one when it runs out of battery.



Ionic toothbrush. Technology is so advanced now omg. I believe you've heard about the benefits of ionic hair dryer, straightener (if you haven't, google it!). And now, ionic toothbrush.

Kiss you's comes in two different brushes - flat and fine. Fine has tiny little bristles and I find it does a better job than the flat brush. Personal preference.




Cleaning effect

I used this with Dentiste toothpaste, I used this with my normal toothpaste. It really cleans well. Even problematic areas (such as the back of my teeth) are pretty much plague-free now, well at least it feels like that.


Stars: 3.5/5


Brush



To be honest the flat brush I was sent felt SO hard when I used it for the first time. The trick to use this is to brush gently. You don't need a lot of force to brush with this. No gum bleeding if I brush gently. I think I would prefer the fine head to the flat one as my teeth overlap a lot. A fine brush head can probably clean the hard-to-reach areas better. That being said, I've never tried their fine brush head before. However, the old toothbrush I was using has a fine brush.


Stars: ★



Benefits of ionic toothbrush

It definitely sounds convincing but whether it really works or not is another story. I can't see ions (sorry no superpower eyes!) nor any significant difference. You will only know after using it for a prolong period of time.

Stars: -




The Verdict:

Frankly speaking, I don't think I've enough time/in good condition to give a comprehensive review. Based on what I've gathered so far, this toothbrush is quite hard. Nonetheless, it does its job and my teeth is nice and clean after brushing.

    1. it sure is! I don't think it is available in soft version; perhaps the fine brush head is soften than the flat one I was using!
