Foreo ISSA Electric Toothbrush Review

Electric toothbrush aficionados, behold the latest, ground-breaking, and world’s first electric toothbrush made completely out of silicone, Foreo’s ISSA.

I have to admit, the only electric toothbrush I’ve used in my life is my son’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle one, so this is all pretty new to me.

I’m gonna break down my first impression into pros/cons.


  • It’s gentle on the teeth and gums.
  • It’s more hygienic than conventional toothbrushes (the silicone bristles are quick-drying and nonporous, which prevent bacteria buildup).
  • You only need to replace the brush head once a year.
  • A single charge will last you for 365 uses!
  • It comes in 4 colors: Mint, Lavender, Cobalt Blue, and Cool Black.
  • It includes 2 year limited warranty.
  • Foreo is a 100% cruelty-free brand. 🙂

Cheeser interjection! 😉


  • It’s a bit $pency – $199.
  • The brush head is HUGE… but I have a small-ish mouth, so maybe I’m just trippin’.
  • It really is a gentle clean and takes a bit of getting used to.

Overall takeaway:

It seems like an eco-friendlier alternative to constantly buying plastic toothbrushes every couple months (or are you supposed to change them out every couple weeks? Oops, BUSTED!). 😮 I love that it’s more hygienic and gentler on the teeth. I’m still getting used to its über gentleness, though. The brush head is a teensy bit big for my smaller than average mouth… but I noticed they make an ISSA mini (for kids), so I might need to order one of those, too.

    Thanks for the review! I have been wanting one of their toothbrushes for a while – glad to know you are enjoying it so far! 🙂

    Woah…I might save up for this. If there’s one thing my hygienist and dentist keep telling me is to stop brushing so hard! Apparently you don’t need a lot of pressure at all.
