Which Electric Toothbrush Should You Buy on Prime Day?

As far as the American Dental Association cares, so long as you brush your teeth for two minutes, twice a day, with a soft-bristled brush, you’re good. (Don’t forget to floss, and use a toothpaste with fluoride, too.) So why do you even need an electric toothbrush? Well, let’s just say that if it keeps you excited about that twice-a-day chore, then an electric toothbrush is doing its job. Of course, if you’re in the market for one, you’ll find that cheap electric toothbrushes just don’t get the job done. A good one from a reputable brand can cost more than an electric razor or a blow dryer; and for that matter, an Instant Pot costs less, and a microwave oven goes for about the same price. Since it’s not likely that you need an electric toothbrush right at this moment, that’s all the more reason to be a smart shopper and hold out for awesome Prime Day deals.

Philips Sonicare Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush

During 2020’s delayed Prime Days last October, this Amazon 5-star recommended toothbrush was reduced by about 40% from its original $170 to just under $100. The retail price has been steadily dropping since the holidays, and right now it’s holding steady at $144, so we anticipate a repeat of October’s sale price. We noticed that many electric toothbrush brands hold out for November Black Friday sales, marking prices down again in early January (better dental care must be a popular New Year’s resolution), so if this deal holds true, you can get a jumpstart on a truly electric smile. The brush allows for a personalized brushing regimen, offering varying intensities and cleaning modes; even syncing with the Sonicare app to give you a brushing progress report. An added bonus is a travel case that charges the brush on the go. 

Smile Direct Club

We have confirmation that Smile Direct Club will offer 20 percent off its electric toothbrush, as well as its package deal with the brush and an aligner brush head (to fit into the “nooks and crannies” of dental aligners). Currently on Amazon at $18 (normally $23), we do have to wonder about the brush’s power (it’s powered by a AAA battery), but, again, if used twice a day, you should be fine. Features include sonic vibrations to move the bristles (rather than your hand) and a 30-second quadrant timer to guide you through the recommended two-minute brushing cycle. Also, watch for 20 percent off SDC’s Teeth Whitening Kit and its Whitening LED Accelerator Light.

How to get rid of dark circles under eyes once and for all
Banish dark circles under your eyes with these steps

If you had a rough night of sleep or day of work, you might want to look in the mirror, get your grooming routine over with, and get on with life.

Then you look closer and notice dark circles under the eyes. If the lighting is fine, the eyes likely aren't playing tricks on you. Dark circles under the eyes are a common bugaboo — right up there with puffy bags in the same location. The two issues are often used interchangeably. However, dark circles under the eyes are different from under-eye bags. Dark circles are discoloration. Under-eye bags are the result of swelling. As a result, some causes are similar — but not all. Understanding the facts about dark circles underneath the eyes can help you find the best fix for you (so maybe you can say "goodbye" to this sight for sore eyes).

While you may think all solutions for this sight for sore eyes will lead you to the skincare aisle of your local drugstore, you may be surprised at the number of suggestions that may have you hurrying to the grocery store instead. One such oft-recommended pantry staple? Tea bags.

Putting food on your face may be a tad cringe-worthy at first blush. After all, someone invented the napkin to prevent long-lasting milk mustaches.
