The traveling toothbrush: Sonic Chic Electric


One of the struggles that I constantly find when I am on the road, especially in rural areas of countries like Mongolia, India or China, is the lack of proper bathrooms: clean, with sinks and running water. I remember traveling through Mongolia, where the bathroom used to be a hole in the ground, surrounded by a small fabric not higher than my waist. Every morning, I had to brush my teeth behind the ger, near the camels and the goats, using bottled water and trying to keep my toothbrush as clean as I could. And being a very clumsy person as I am, that was a hard task.

The other day I received the Sonic Chic Urban Electric Toothbrush to test, a toothbrush made for traveling: compact, lightweight and with a stylish design.


I loved the design from the first moment I’ve seen it. It is smaller than a normal toothbrush and it’s protected by a ventilated cap, so that even if your shampoo spills in your toiletries bag (which happened to me several times), your toothbrush will remain clean and germs free. It comes with a replacement brush head, a battery and instructions.


It is very easy to use, all you have to do is put toothpaste on it, press the button and brush your teeth as normal. I have noticed that the brush head is soft and gentle, which is perfect for my sensitive teeth. The head brush is also small so that it gets to hard to clean areas that you wouldn’t be able to reach a normal sized toothbrush.

The toothbrush has a speed of 22,000 strokes per minute, and after I brushed my teeth with it I noticed a clean and fresh feeling that lasted throughout the day.


Another great advantage of the Sonic Chic Electric Toothbrush is that you can put it anywhere in your bag without worrying that it will get dirty. When you finish brushing your teeth, you can simply put it in a standing position while you rinse your mouth. No more falling off the sink or even on the ground, in the wilderness of Mongolia.


Besides the functionality of the Sonic Chic Electric Toothbrush I love that it also comes in different designs, to match the personality of the owner. You can choose from a range of stylish patterns inspired from the catwalk fashion trends.

  1. It’s the first time I ever heard of such product. This is great for the environment too because you no longer have to avail of those cheap hotel toothbrushes only to dispose or leave them there afterwards. Loving also that it’s very nicely packaged.

  2. The design is a very creative idea! In a travel bag and for every day-using… It’s a toothbrush definitely made for traveling. Great choice! Have a nice new week!

  3. I’ve never seen an electric toothbrush that’s compact as well. I love it. I enjoy traveling, so this is great. It’s nice that there are different designs. Maybe I’ll order one for my next holiday!

  4. This is so handy, I am going away for a few days and am debating whether or not I need one of these, I really dont want to go back to manual toothbrushes x

  5. That’s one cool toothbrush. It sure is handy especially for a traveller like you. I also checked their website. There’s a deluxe version where you can charge the toothbrush via USB. So far, that’s (the deluxe) the most unisex version of their electric toothbrush.

  6. I had an electric toothbrush when I was I kid and never knew they would come up a travel size version. 🙂 Definitely love the pink color! I’d still prefer the old toothbrush since I can have better control in cleaning the corners of my teeth. It’s amazing how compact it is and it can fit in our kikay kit.

  7. Love how compact it is and it’s perfect for traveling indeed. I always have a grooming kit in my bag, and it always includes a toothbrush. This is perfect!

  8. Tbh, when I was a kid I really wanted to have one! I don’t know why but really, it was like the ultimate Christmas wish for me then. If someone would be kind enough to give me one, I’d be so glad to accept it! It’ll also be helpful in various journeys <3

  9. I have seen that toothbrush in trade fairs in China several times but for the life of me, because that was never my line of business, I could not figure out why anyone would buy a toothbrush like that. AND NOW I understand. Yes, I agree, the way you put it, I can now see one big advantage – mobility. You can bring it and it is very convenient to use, plus very practical.

  10. Oh, a travel must have! Would love to try this one out too and bring it for travels. Though I don’t have the luxury to travel that much. Nevertheless, I still want to try it out. Thanks for sharing!

    There’s More to Mica

  11. Oh that’s a really compact one! Most electric tootbrushes are bulky and not travel friendly, this definitely adds something of value! Love the color too!

  12. Ooh this is definitely a must have for travelers, compact and useful and it’s pink! 🙂

    I know what you mean about the lack of a clean and functioning bathroom, that’s one of the reasons why I don’t travel much, the fear of going somewhere without a proper working toilet and bath! 😛

  13. There are a bunch of electric toothbrushes here in the Philippines but I have not heard of this brand yet. It looks really nice and effective and I hope they ship those here.

  14. I love this toothbrush! It’s ideal for traveling. I always worry about my toothbrush getting dirty, when I travel. This looks so practical! Small, but effective. Elegant too!! Ha, ha. I will definitely try this! Thank you.

  15. I never knew that traveling to Mongolia could be so difficult. Anyway, I still haven’t tried an electric toothbrush. This seem really nice and stylish. I also love the color as it’s pink 🙂 I just hope that there won’t be problems of battery leakage. Thank you for sharing about this 🙂

  16. I do a lot of traveling myself so I’m always eager to hear about products that make it easier. I know that when I have a layover after a long International flight, my first stop is the bathroom to brush my teeth, reapply deodorant and wash my face.


  17. I have this! I love it. Mines spotty though. So small and fits into luggage so easily. Looks more stylish and nicer than a usual Colgate or something.
