Oral B Genius 9000 Rosegold

________ 2018-08-18 ________

Hi guys! I have been all crazy about skincare since 2018 took it’s beginning—and with it came oral care as well lol. After months of researching and reading article after article, I decided to go big and invest in an Oral-B Genius 9000 in rosegold!! It was a beautiful moment when I opened the package and saw what was waiting for me. The most high-tech toothbrush with the most 2018-color haha!

I thought it was a good time to throw in a mini-review on this. I’ve been using this for almost 4 months and have literally nothing to complain about. I ordered the toothbrush from Clas Ohlson (direct link) and it came with 4 different brush heads, a beautiful rosegold cover/travel case and an iPhone “stand” so you can put your iPhone up on the mirror and use the Bluetooth features as well (I told you it’s high-tech!!) It has 5 different brushing modes, pressure sensor (so you don’t brush too hard) and is the only brush with position detection that sees where you brush and guides you to never miss a zone. It also have Bluetooh and an app that you can download on your iPhone to keep track on your brushing sessions. Talk about really going all in for oral care?

I’ve only been using 1 head, the crystal one, and it’s my favorite. It has a round shape to it so it really brush the teeth from all sides. I always choose the “polishing” mode cause I feel that’s when my teeth gets the intensive care they need after eating crap all day. There’s also a mode for your tongue, so you can scrape off all food residues in one go!

I used the travel case for my trip to Pakistan and it was the easiest and most convenient thing ever. I just took off the brush head and neatly packed the toothbrush in the travel case—voila! Forget all transparent kitchen bags you always use—we’re traveling with style!

I have to be honest; I haven’t used the Bluetooh mode that much. I downloaded the app before flying to Pakistan, but deleted it again cause it was taking up too much space in my phone and I also didn’t use the app at all. I tried the position detection as well, but didn’t like it at all since the moment you moved your face, it would get out of frame and start all over again. It was just too complicated for me I guess. I really liked that you could choose the color tho! That’s also something you’ll need the app for! The travel case comes with a USB port as well, so you can charge your phone and toothbrush in one go. 21st century at its best.

PROS
Beautiful color! Rosegold all the waaaay
Travelcase with an USB-port—What more do you need?
5 different brush heads—secured for the upcoming 2 years at least lol
Pressure sensor—okay so this has to be my favorite feature ever. I’ve always had very weird looking toothbrushes since they always end up ruined cause I brush too hard, but this prevent the whole thing! It starts blinking red whenever you put on too much pressure! YAS

CONS
The color is VERY sensitive. It’s rosegold mixed with white and ugh, let me just say that I should’ve gone for a darker color. Gets very dirty after a week and so.
The app is hella confusing—anyone else using it and think the same?
Battery—okay so I know it’s an electric tootbrush and cause of that you need to charge it but ughhhhhhh the other day it died before me being done with my teeth and I got so damn annoyed lol.


All in all—I really love it and it makes my teeth feel brand new, BUT it IS a lot of money for a toothbrush. I think it’s cause of the Bluetooh feature…. Which I didn’t like either. I don’t know, I would recommend Oral B as a brand but would most probably advise you to buy the old versions as they’re cheaper and got the same ability, just without the Bluetooth.

Hope this helped you guys! This review is written in all honesty and I bought the toothbrush with my own money.

Tips, Skincare

Hairmask—recommended by you!

________ 2018-04-07 ________

Hi girlies! Not long ago I asked you guys on instagram for hair remedies ♥ I use to have the best hair in the world but lately it’s been taking all the my falls I’ve been through the years. From uni stress to insomnia ugh. So a lot of you messaged me telling me thousands of totke and good hairmasks to get the shine back on with, but obviously I couldn’t possibly try everything lol. So after thinking for some time I went with the one I got recommended the most—mixed with all natural ingredients there is to find on the market! I have only been using this for 2-3 weeks—so I can’t say this is the one, but it has most definitely helped my frizzy hair a lot! I always use this before taking my weekly shower (LOL)—so twice a week, and it leaves my hair soooo soft and with zero knots!

Just a sidenote though; only playing with hairmasks won’t do it. You have to eat right, drink a lot of water and sleep right as well. All combined and you’re back to normal! None of the things I mentioned here works without the other. They’re like partners in crime.

Anyway! Here are the ingredients;

1 egg—Here we’re only using the egg yolk, not the whole thing. Some girls messaged me asking how to get rid of the smell it leaves in the hair. I soap my hair twice and then shampoo it. Also the smell mainly appears when you put a whole egg in your hair. It’s only the egg yolk that supposed to be mixed with the rest. Not only will your hair smell, but it’s very difficult to get it out of your hair as well.
1 tablespoon yoghurt— I use natural yoghurt you get from your local supermarket. The more yoghurt you use, the runnier it will be, so maybe even less than one tablespoon?
1 drop of honey—Also just normal honey. It comes in a tiny bottle I just squeeze a bit and there’s one drop.
1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil—I use the Vatika one! It’s theee best! I like to add more oil into the whole thing cause it is what’s best for your hair. You take how much your hair needs obviously. I don’t have the thickest hair in the world anymore, but there’s still a lot of it. So all ingredients need to be according to your hair.

Mix everything in a bowl and voila! Don’t wait too long with the egg though. I did and it was sooo hard to mix it afterwards—it left me with tiny lumps that I couldn’t crush so I had to throw everything out and make another hairmask lol. Also you’re supposed to mainly concentrate on the roots and then take the leftovers in the rest of the hair. I will be back after 1 year to tell you the difference, but until then you can join the wagon and tell me how it’s going for you?
