The SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush comes from SNOW Cosmetics LLC, a U.S. company known for its high-tech whitening kits. It promises a “whiter smile after every brush.”1
The SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush received notable recognition, including:
I chose this toothbrush for various reasons:
After using the SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush, I found it easy to use but with a slight learning curve. It was also effective in removing plaque.
I’m still skeptical about the blue LED light’s impact on whitening my teeth, but my teeth feel cleaner after brushing. This electric toothbrush feels well-built, and ordering replacement brush heads was easy with SNOW’s Subscribe & Save option.

The SNOW LED Electric toothbrush has two LED brushing heads, one already installed on the base. It emits 30,000 vibrations per minute and a bright LED light that isn’t overpowering to the eyes.
Compared to other electric toothbrushes, its noise is more tolerable, and the head resembles the size of a manual toothbrush. The larger and broader bristle area makes it easy to reach my back molars without bumping the electric toothbrush against my teeth.
Aside from the two toothbrush heads, you’ll also receive a charging base and adapter. This LED electric toothbrush has a slim base with a raised section that aids grip.
To turn the SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush on, simply push the button featuring a large snowflake. To turn off the toothbrush, simply hold the snowflake button down longer.
I noted that this electric toothbrush doesn’t have pressure sensors. Quickly press the snowflake button to switch modes, indicated by the small lighted dots below it.
The SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush has a built-in Smart Timer that automatically shuts off after 2 minutes. The 30-second intervals, spaced by a 2- to 3-second pause, indicate how long you should spend on one quadrant of your mouth.
Within the colored section of the brush handle, you can see each of the four brushing modes listed. The brushing modes include:
I found that the “sensitive” mode wasn’t as effective in removing plaque as the “clean” mode. I have sensitive teeth, so I typically start with this mode to adjust. However, the SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush bristles are soft enough to make using the “clean” mode less painful than other electric toothbrushes.
The SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush remembers which mode you were in before you turned it off. If you turn the toothbrush on in “polish” or “sensitive” mode, it takes about 3 to 4 seconds for it to change from the “clean” mode vibrational pattern to the correct one. If you don’t want to wait, you can just push the button to return to that mode, but I didn’t find this an issue.
Similar to many other electric toothbrushes, you can charge the SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush via a USB connection or standard wall plug via the included adapter. The toothbrush has an indicator light that glows green or red depending on the battery status.
The SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush’s battery requires 12 hours to charge fully. SNOW’s owner manual recommends charging the battery entirely if it’s the first time you use it or if you haven’t used the toothbrush in 3 months.
At full charge, the battery lasts for 4 weeks or more. My SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush was fully charged out of the box, so I didn’t have to charge it for a week or two after it arrived. Flipping through the various modes to demonstrate the different bristle actions didn’t drain the battery as much as I expected.
I found it easiest to keep the LED electric toothbrush plugged into the charging dock overnight to sustain the battery charge. The charging dock is small enough to fit in the palm of my hand.
The SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush base is IPX7-rated to withstand up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes. The top of the electric toothbrush base is smooth and features a small hole for the brush head mount post. The brush head also features a small hole, making it easy to dry both after brushing.
I’ve always associated powerful UV lights with professional teeth whitening procedures, but I was skeptical at how effective an LED light would be in whitening my teeth.
After using the SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush for a few days, I remain skeptical about using blue LEDs to whiten my teeth. My teeth looked whiter and felt cleaner, but I wouldn’t say the blue LEDs significantly impacted this result. Many other customer reviews echoed my thoughts.
Based on my experience with the SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush, the sale price of $99 is closer to what I’d feel comfortable spending versus the full price of $149.
The SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush feels well-built and is effective in removing plaque. However, I don’t think the LED light’s uncertain effectiveness warranted a price increase.
The toothbrush has many pros, which include:
However, in my experience, it also has some features that present as cons. These include:
If you’re looking for an electric toothbrush that doesn’t require an extra whitening routine, the SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush could be the one for you.
You can also easily pair it with several of SNOW’s additional whitening products for a comprehensive oral care routine.

SNOW states its electric toothbrush contains blue LED light for whitening support.1 Several studies had varying results regarding the use of blue LEDs to whiten teeth:
This evidence doesn’t necessarily support using blue LEDs to whiten teeth unless you use toothpaste with hydrogen peroxide that activates under this light. Even then, you’re still not getting the whitening power you would with professional teeth whitening treatments.

Yes, you can safely use blue LED lights to whiten your teeth. The LED is low-intensity and doesn’t harm your gums or teeth. Instead, the LED activates whitening agents such as hydrogen peroxide within your toothpaste.
You can purchase a travel bag from SNOW that’s relatively affordable.16 However, only the Advanced Whitening LED Electric Toothbrush has a hard travel case.
The SNOW LED Electric Toothbrush takes 12 hours to charge. You should charge the battery if it’s the first time you’re using it, you haven’t used it in 3 months, or the battery has no charge. You can use the USB charging base or adapt it to a standard outlet with the charger adapter.
