Update: Sold out.
Philips’ entry-level Sonicare Essence electric toothbrush has long been a reader favorite, and now Amazon’s running the best deal we’ve seen on the sequel, the Essence+.
The big improvement here is the brush head: Rather than the screw-on E-series heads (which have a tendency to collect sludge along the seam), the Essence+ uses standard Sonicare snap-on heads. The upshot is that you get a lot more choices: Philips sells seven different options for different budgets and brushing styles.
For a limited time, Amazon’s taking $10 off the brush’s already discounted $30 price tag. We’ve seen this $10 coupon before, but it’s usually subtracting from a $35-$40 starting price. Just note that you won’t see the final price until checkout.
