If you've been pining after pearlier whites or that fresh feeling you get from a cleaning at the dentist, I've got major news for you: Amazon is have a serious sale on the Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean Classic electric toothbrush—and it's allegedly the same one Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian use (according to People and The Cut).
The product, which normally goes for $199.99 is currently on sale for $147.30—that's more than $50 off, guys!
While experts say both manual and electric toothbrushes can properly clean your teeth, electric versions can be really helpful, especially those who are often told by their dentist that they've missed a spot, or for anyone who struggles to brush for the recommended two minutes (ugh, same).
"The average person doesn’t brush as well as they should, so electric toothbrushes can help,” Mark S. Wolff, DDS, PhD, dean of the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, previously told Women's Health.
While it might feel painful to drop more than $100 on something as pedestrian as a toothbrush, it can ultimately be a really smart investment—especially if you care about your oral health (which, uh, yeah, you should).
There are plenty of reasons why people love this Sonicare model, so let me count the ways: For starters, according to the product description, it removes seven times more plaque than a standard toothbrush. It also cleans teeth with up to 31,000 brush strokes per minute, which, let's be honest, you can't even come close to with a manual toothbrush.
As far as stain-removing goes, the toothbrush has been shown to reduce the build up from things like coffee, tea, red wine and cigarettes, per the product description. And lastly (most importantly?), it has two weeks worth of battery life, meaning you can totally travel with it without needing to pack its charger.
Basically, now's your chance to grab an electric toothbrush if you've been mulling it over—or if you just read this and need one ASAP now.
