What is Brüush?

Brüush is not just the name of a toothbrush, but it's also an oral care brand on a mission to brighten, whiten and clean your smile and improve your oral health.

The company wanted to make an electric toothbrush that was highly functional and easy to use. They also wanted to make brushing your teeth something that you don't just do out of obligation, but rather a part of your self-care routine that you look forward to and enjoy.

They have a subscription brush head refill program so you can change your brush heads every two months — just what the dentist ordered.

They're collaborating with Kevin Hart — whose bright white smile, quick sense of humor, and warm personality have made him a household staple across the US and Canada.

Brüush toothbrush features

We'll make this short and sweet. The Brüush electric toothbrush features:

Bruush
Soft Dupont bristles
  • Sonic technology: Brüush eliminates plaque with 42,000 strokes per minute
  • Travel-friendly: The lithium-ion battery lasts a whole 4 weeks, plus it comes in a sleek case for on-the-go
  • 6 brushing modes: Choose from daily, white, gentle, gum, max, and tongue to personalize your routine
  • Built-in timers: A 2-minute timer tells you how long to brush, and a 30-second timer lets you know when to move on to the next quadrant
  • Specialty bristles: Brüush heads have a unique shape that gets into every crack and crevice, plus extra-soft Dupont Tynext nylon bristles which are gentle on enamel, but ruthless on plaque
  • Refill plan: Their refill plan sends you a set of 3 brush heads every 6 months for just $6/head

Thanks to all of those features, Brüush cleans 20% better than a manual brush, in fact, there are now multiple studies that demonstrate that electric and sonic toothbrushes simply do a better job than manual brushes. (If you prefer to use a manual brush that's fine too, you can still take great care of your teeth!)

Brüush subscription service

You can definitely just purchase the toothbrush on its own, and buy refill brush heads separately when you need them, but if you'd like the process to be automatic, you can opt for the subscription.

With the Brüush subscription, you get 3 replacement heads sent to you every 6 months — meaning you should change the heads every 2 months. You can also customize your plan, and change the frequency at which you receive your new brush heads.

The subscription plan costs just $18 every 6 months, so that's just $6 per brush head. Shipping is free and you can cancel anytime.

Brüush costs $79 when you purchase a subscription plan, making it a great option if you want a high-tech toothbrush under $100.

If you prefer to purchase the brush without the refill subscription, that's also available.

90-day guarantee

Brüush offers a 90-day guarantee which means that you can use your Brüush for 3 whole months before you decide if it's the right toothbrush for you.

If for some reason you aren't happy, you can return your brush for a full refund minus a $10 shipping label fee.

Although Quip is quite a lot cheaper, it delivers much weaker brushing power and still requires you to brush manually rather than just hold it against your teeth. The Quip brush is also not rechargeable but takes AAA batteries, which may or may not appeal to you.

Brüush reviews

What are customers saying about Brüush? You'll find a mix of positive and negative reviews for Brüush.

★★☆☆☆

“This is not the product I would recommend for anyone with any type of sensory sensitivities…Maybe mine was defective somehow, but I couldn't handle it even on the gentle setting.”

Amazon customer
Bruush reviews
Brüush gets great reviews

★★☆☆☆

“Beautiful, sleek design; love that it is rechargeable and generously comes with two extra heads; vibrates at the same vibration as a dentist’s drill; bristles are so soft, they can hardly be felt against the teeth, but touching the vibrating hard part of the brush to one’s teeth produces a sensation like hitting one’s funny bone.”

Sybil on Amazon

One customer does mention that the settings seem like overkill and that the magnetic stand doesn't hold the brush securely:

★★★★☆

Great cleaning. Some drawbacks — GOOD: Cleans very well. Amazing brush speed. Holds its charge a long time. Looks sharp. Comes with a USB charger. The brush head design is an improvement over the typical round & oval shapes of other brands. NOT SO GOOD: Replacement brush heads are only available through the maker's website. The brush comes with a small magnetic stand that's not sturdy enough to hold the brush securely. 😒 (I have mine standing in a tall glass on my counter.) BRUSHH features a number of settings for various oral care processes. These seem like overkill to me. Maybe an advertising ploy?”

In the video below, Dr. Mitchell gives his take on the Brüush, walks us through the unboxing, and shares what he knows about the product and the company.

During the unboxing, we see that Brüush comes in elegant and simple packaging. With the Brüush you get a travel case that holds the brush head separately for cleanliness. Brüush charges wirelessly, by standing on top of the magnetic base.

It comes with three brush heads which will last you six months, at which point Brüush will send you new replacement heads if you choose the subscription service.

He also mentions that the battery life is four weeks long, the bristles are ultra soft, and that with the subscription plan it ends up costing about the same as a regular toothbrush over time.

Conclusion
