Brandefy compares store brands (i.e.equate) to name brands (i.e. Philips) to save you money and time. We let you know when the store brand is a great match for the name, and when it is not. We want you to have a good time doing it. Check out our ratings page to get a quick view of how store brands stack up.

A Brandefy expert's Kroger brand electric toothbrush (boo) quit after five years.  A Brandefy husband has a Philip's Diamondclean sonic toothbrush, but we believe you shouldn't have to spend that kind of cash on a toothbrush.  When we saw that Walmart's equate brand made a dupe, we were jazzed.  The $37 dollar equate version is a dupe of the Sonicare, but the Diamondclean is Philip's priciest model, so we knew we would be comparing it with a top of the line brush. We compared the stats, and there are many in common.  They both pulse at over 30,000 strokes per minute, they both have a built in timer, and they both have a charge indicator.  Equate has a bonus: bristles change color to alert you when it is time to change it out. It felt too good to be true.

It's not! This Brandefyer has brushed her teeth with both brushes (changed out the husband's brush head, folks) and they both felt very similar on the teeth.  Better yet, her teeth felt just as clean and fresh with both.  We were amazed by how clean both brushes left the mouth.  Hooray!

We should note that you will miss a few perks with the equate that the Philip's brush offers.  Philips has an option to connect your brush to an app.  This allows you to monitor plaque.  They also have tongue cleaning attachments and other add-ons that can be purchased for an additional amount. If you are passionate about oral care, you may enjoy these perks.  

Ultimately, we will take more cash and less plaque!
