What is it: a female lifestyle monthly subscription box curated by Lisa Sugar, founder of a lifestyle blogPopsugar that features celebrity news, shopping, beauty, fitness, entertainment, food, children, home and pets.

In the July 2015 Popsugar MUST HAVE box the one item I am most excited to try is the PORTABLE POP DENTAL SONIC TOOTHBRUSH, value $20.  

I didn't order the POPSUGAR MUST HAVE box for July because I was disappointed in the last 2 boxes, thus, I temporarily suspended my subscription.  For some reason, I tend to like their fall and winter boxes much more than their spring or summer boxes.  I got my toothbrush in a swap with other subscription box lovers.  To find out how to trade, check out my previous post on swapping here

My SONICARE recently broke - after about 10 years (so I can't complain), leading me to look for both a travel version and a replacement.   On POP DENTAL home page, they claim the following: 

If it is better than SONICARE + less expensive = sounds good to me.  In that graph above, I made the assumption that 25% more VPM (vibration per minute) is also compared to SONICARE - but in reality, I have no idea what they compared it to.  

When I finally received the toothbrush, it was smaller than I expected.  Then again, it is suppose to be travel friendly - so I thought to myself, "if this works as well as SONICARE, I am never buying SONICARE again.  I will always use POP DENTAL instead."

After putting in the battery that comes with each toothbrush, I started brushing. I noticed immediately that there was a strong vibration in my hand = good.  However, no sense of vibration in the head.  So I took it out of my mouth, felt the brush with my fingers while it is still on...hmm...I guess it kind of moves....put it in my mouth again.  Again, can't feel it in my mouth - so now I am thinking "should I brush as if I am using a regular brush? or should I let the brush guide me like I would in SONICARE?"  I tried both. 

Conclusion = I am still finding a replacement for my broken SONICARE.   At the end, I think my teeth felt cleaner than old fashion hand toothbrush alone, but nothing close to SONICARE, but I suppose I would use it for travel purposes since I already have it.  I would not buy this item - SORRY.
