CariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush + Giveaway!

One of the things I added to our wedding registry was a new set of fancy electric toothbrushes. I saw it on the list of recommendations for gift requests, and I thought, “oh man, that would be nice”. While we didn’t get them from our registry, we DID get them as a gift from SmileBrilliant! I had never actually used an electric toothbrush before and was really curious what the difference would be as compared to a normal manual toothbrush, so when they offered to let me try this one, I was thrilled! I’ve used their whitening system before and loved it.

Smile Brilliant sent me the cariPRO Ultrasonic toothbrush to try out and see how it went. It’s one of their newest models and has 5 mode options to choose from: Clean, White, Massage, Gum Care, and Sensitive. After using it consistently and trying all of the modes out for a few days, I decided Sensitive was my favorite, but they all have their merits (I’ll touch on that in a minute). As someone who has never used an electric toothbrush, the Sensitive mode was the easiest for me to get used to. Jake had also never used one, and tried it out along with me!

What are the benefits I noticed early on?

First off, I was honestly surprised that my teeth actually felt cleaner. There is a timing mechanism in the toothbrush so once you turn it on, every 30 seconds it pauses for a second indicating switch areas. I think that really helped me focus on each area a bit more than what I was used to doing on my own. I have this hard to reach area behind my front bottom teeth that I never feel is clean enough. I had just sort of accepted that the plaque built up there easily. Using this new Ultrasonic brush, I actually was consistently happy with how good that problem area felt. Obviously I needed this sooner haha.

I looked forward to brushing my teeth. Typically, dental hygiene is just something you do as part of your routine. But have you ever found yourself looking forward to it? Not counting after you eat something weird. I really enjoyed the feeling of the new toothbrush right away, and I could tell it was way better than my manual one. That made me actually look forward to using it, which was a new experience on its own.

My husband also noticed a huge difference with how clean his teeth felt trying it out with me. I was surprised to hear him actually want to use the new toothbrush instead of just being indifferent toward it. He could tell the difference, too, and loved it as much as I did!

How do the different modes work?

Clean mode is the general basic. This is what I started out with. It kinda shocked me in the beginning because I wasn’t used to it, but once I settled in after the first 30 second, it basically felt like getting a dental cleaning. If like me you’ve never used an electric toothbrush, the vibrations are way different than anything I’ve ever felt before. But honestly it wasn’t in a bad way — just something new. Once I got used to it, I noticed I liked it way better.

White mode is an amped up clean. Its purpose is to remove surface stains and really get in there to give you a deep whitening clean. I don’t think this is an everyday setting as it is a more intense mode, but a few days a week is good if you feel like changing it up.

Massage mode is a quick burst that only last 30 seconds to give your gums a nice little rub down. I used this after the normal brushing as just an extra oomph for my mouth.

Gum care is AMAZING. It felt so nice to actually focus just on my gums for once. Let me tell you, I’ve never done that. And I’m not a big flosser, so this was great. It seriously felt like a special dental treatment in the comfort of my own bathroom. Who knew you could get so excited about a toothbrush hahaha.

And lastly, my favorite, Sensitive mode. I do have sensitive teeth, and this was the perfect happy medium setting for me. I loved everything about it. It gave me the same clean with less intensity to be a little nicer to my mouth even than I was using a manual toothbrush! I will 100% never go back to one again. I’m obsessed with this new feeling of clean!!

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at via the link in my bio ❤️
