Foreo ISSA 3 review- blue and pink electric toothbrush flat lay

What makes a first good impression? Businessmen would perfect their handshakes while public speakers would argue for a good posture. There’s no explicit formula to impress, but I’m sure we can agree that a charming smile can easily seal the deal.

FOREO ISSA 3, with its silicon bristles and Sonic Pulse technology, revolutionizes oral care with whiter teeth and healthier gums.

FOREO is a Swedish beauty-tech brand that aims to revolutionize beauty products with cutting-edge technology. Since their founding in 2013, they have launched numerous groundbreaking products, including ISSA, her first brain child, which has already seen two model updates.

What makes ISSA 3 so unique? 

The medical-grade silicon alone means that it is more durable than a regular toothbrush. Your dentist recommends changing your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months. Meanwhile, ISSA 3 comes with interchangeable brush heads that last from 6 months to a year, depending on how rough you are with it. This means that every ISSA 3 brush head is equivalent to 4 of your average toothbrush.

Of course, it’s not just about durability.

The silicon toothbrush is gentle against the gums without compromising its effectiveness. It’s supplemented by a Sonic Pulse technology that reaches every nook and cranny of your mouth. Cavity? Thank you, next.

Apparently, silicon bristles are also a lot more hygienic than nylon ones as they dry quicker and are nonporous, preventing the build-up of bacteria.

I wasn’t a fan of how it felt initially. The material felt foreign in my mouth compared to the standard bristles. But after two brushes, I got accustomed to it and honestly it’s not the same with regular toothbrushes ever since. My gums have been pampered!

But how does it fare in comparison to other electric toothbrushes in the market? Electric toothbrushes have always prided on their ability to clean better but I’ve never liked using them. Maybe it’s because I have sensitive gums, and it brought discomfort. I would either leave the toilet with uncleaned teeth or bleeding gums..

Another issue with your everyday electric toothbrush is how high-maintenance it was. I remember having to make space for a bulky charging station and how I had to charge it after every use. Well, all ISSA 3 requires is a single USB charge that allows it to last for about half a year.

And yes, it’s waterproof!

Use it like a regular toothbrush!

It sounds like a complicated product, but it’s not as daunting as it seems. Just brush your teeth as you normally would and let the Sonic Pulse technology do its job. There are 16 intensities to choose from to suit your preference and I stick with the one in the middle.

After I’m done brushing, I’ll use the tongue and cheek cleanser at the back to complete my oral routine. Your tongue actually harbours tons of bacteria and I feel like the slightly rougher ridges of ISSA 3 really helps to get rid of them.

It’s hard to choose my favourite aspect of the magic toothbrush. I mean, it does such an amazing job cleaning my teeth, it’s more hygienic and it looks so stylish. I could see this as a norm in a futuristic movie to be honest. But, I have to settle with how convenient it is. 365 uses in 1 charge? Not to mention, how it doesn’t come with a bulky charger which my cramped toilet can’t accommodate.

To conclude, I recommend the FOREO ISSA 3 to anyone who is serious about their oral hygiene and would like an oralcare buddy which is effective, efficient, durable and stylish. I agree the price point may scare many away at first, but it is a long term investment and hence should be given  a chance.
