NOTE: This competition has now closed, the winners have been notified and they are Charlotte S Cotton and Nicole Kent. 

Thank you so much for all your entries – stay tuned for more competitions coming on Sydney Social 101.

Every so often I get asked to review a product, new technologies, beauty essentials for Sydney Social 101. I am usually reluctant unless it has a great fit with the site, and my readers! This is one of those occasions where I just can’t keep this little beauty secret to myself!

Oral-B and Braun have partnered up and designed the new Black 7000 electronic toothbrush model, creating one of the most high performing, multi functional electric toothbrushes ever.

After trying the Black 7000 for four weeks I can honestly say I will never go back to using a regular toothbrush again! A bold claim I know, but a true one!

The impressive gadget has a huge variety of modes including deep clean, sensitive, whitening, massage and tongue cleaning as well as five different brush heads for precision cleaning.  It evens lets you know when you are brushing too hard.  There is literally nothing this brush cannot do.

“With 48,800 movements per minute, the Oral-B 7000 Black features unique oscillating, rotating and pulsating bristles that provide a tooth-by-tooth clean – a technology heralded by independent reviews for removing up to twice as much plaque as a regular manual toothbrush” (Oral-B spokesperson).

The toothbrush comes complete with a slick travel case and a digital timer which signals dentist recommended brushing times.  Finished in a stylish black matt the Black 7000 ticks all the boxes and is definitely worth its price tag (RRP $299).  You will not be disappointed, I wasn’t and my teeth have never felt cleaner.

Don’t forget to pack this bad boy for your summer vacations, it is a must-have – bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase: “Don’t forget your toothbrush!”

If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning one of  2 x Oral-B BLACKs (worth approx. $300 each) simply like Sydney Social 101 on Facebook and tell us in 25 words or less why you should be picked!

Competition closes 5th February 2014 at 17:00.
