Hello to iO8

The revolutionary Oral-B iO8 electric toothbrush has now been launched and I was thrilled to be asked to join the review panel by the lovely team at Super Savvy Me 

I was sent the Oral-B iO Series 8 brush in 'Black Onyx' and have been using it for two weeks. I've never used an electric toothbrush before, I have really sensitive teeth and my dentist is always nagging me to try one or at least make that hygienist appointment!

The Oral-B iO has 6 smart brushing modes to suit your teeth
  • daily clean
  • gum care
  • intense
  • sensitive
  • super sensitive
  • whiten
I was pleased to see a sensitive mode which I tried straight away. There's a 2 minute timer to ensure you are cleaning for the recommended time and even better the series 8 features an Enhanced Smart Pressure Sensor to ensure when you brush you apply the correct pressure, the sensor glows red for too much pressure, green for recommended level or white for low pressure. 

For the techies among us, the series 8 connects via Bluetooth technology to the Oral-B app. The Artificial Intelligence recognises your brushing style and highlights any areas you may miss while cleaning. I found this very easy to use. 

The iO8 is lightweight and easy to hold, the slimline design fits perfectly with the intelligent features. The interactive display even says 'hello' and a smile or frown show how effective your brushing has been. After two weeks of used I can tell you that my teeth feel so clean and I feel like they have had a professional clean at the dentist. I am now a total convert to electric toothbrushes and cannot wait to see what my dentist says at my next checkup. I am sure he will notice a difference 

The iO8 comes with 1 refill brush head, a soft zipper case, a travel brush head holder and a magnetic 'click' charger. 

The Oral-B iO8 is now on offer at an introductory price at Boots click here

I was gifted the Oral-B iO8 for the purpose of this review.
