PHILIPS SONICARE TONGUECARE+

Over the past few months I have been lucky enough to trial a range of Philips Sonicare products (Airflosser) and today I am sharing with you the Philips Sonicare TongueCare+. I have only ever used a tongue cleaner which I have had on the back of my manual toothbrushes and have never really found them all that effective, so to have a tool that is designed to clean your tongue intrigued me.

The Philips Sonicare TongueCare+ contains a tongue brush as well as a special BreathRx spray which instantly transforms your Sonicare electric toothbrush into a powerful breath solution, and it is clinically proven to provide a longer lasting fresh breath in just 60 seconds and it costs just £16 which I happen to think is a bargain. Infact this TongueCare+ fits onto any Sonicare click-on system handles.

Having done their research, Philips recognises that a toothbrush alone cannot eliminate all bad breath bacteria and Up to 80% of bad breath comes from odour-producing bacteria that accumulate and hide deep within the porous surface of your tongue. So, the TongueCare+ combines three powerful components that work together to form an advanced fresh-breath solution.

1. Click on Tongue Brush - The innovative tongue brush, with its 240 MicroBristles, contours to the tongue to clean away bad breath bacteria below the surface. 

2. BreathRx Tongue Spray - This specially formulated tongue spray kills 99% of the germs that cause bad breath (according to lab studies) and neutralises lingering odours. The spray coats the tongue and keeps it lubricated for a gentle cleaning experience and the cool mint flavour leaves your mouth fresh and clean.
3. Sonic Power - TongueCare+ is the only tongue cleaner that uses Philips Sonicare power, driving the bacteria-killing ingredients of the BreathRX spray deeper into the pores of the tongue. Generating 31 000 vibrations per minute to break up food debris, clean and remove any bacteria build up and clean deep into the grooves of the tongue to deliver a thorough clean.

Given my last attempts with a tongue cleaner on the back of my toothbrush making me gag, I didn't expect too much from this, but boy was I wrong. The rubber bristles are very short and flexible making them totally different to those on the back of a toothbrush because these bristles are much more gentle and whilst I did gag the first few times of using it, as you become used to it, you gag less, so to speak and there is no discomfort and it doesn't feel as weird or strange as it sounds.

The BreathRX spray is one of those products that you think will be an unneccesary edition, but actually I much prefer it to mouthwash and it does make that clean feel much more noticeable.  It does have quite a strong scent and the cooling mint flavour adds to that feeling of cleanliness and fresh feeling and it actually doesn't taste too bad.

As I have said, I wasn't too sure I needed to have a tongue cleaner in my life, that was until this one, for me it is something more than a gimmick and is infact an integral part of my oral hygiene and it takes just up just one minute, it is one of those products that you didn't know you needed until you had it and if like me, you are obsessed with ensuring your oral hygiene is as good as it can be, then this will be an amazing purchase for £16, the improvement in my own mouth freshness is amazing and that feeling of cleanliness lasts so much longer.

  6. That's so interesting to hear how well it worked - like you, any tongue cleaners I've tried have usually just made me gag or felt like a bit of a pointless extra. My husband already has a Sonicare toothbrush too.
