“ Brand: Boots / Type: Toothbrush / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
I was after a new toothbrush and was in Boots browsing their toothbrush shelf. I didn't want an expensive one (especially the ones I could see priced £5+) and having had good experiences with cheaper toothbrushes in the past, I decided I would get an own brand one.
I noticed this Boots Smile - Sensitive Toothbrush. The toothbrush is currently selling on the Boots website (and I am sure it is the same price in store as it was around £2 that I paid for mine.
The toothbrush is designed for sensitive teeth. Its aim is to provide effective cleaning whilst being soft and gentle gums.
The toots brush is 'see through' - it is made of clear plastic and the bristles are white.
I have sensitive teeth - certain foods especially cold and sugary ones give me a funny sensation and make my teeth hurt. Sometimes when brushing my teeth (with a normal toothbrush) I catch the sensitive areas and it hurts. So this Boots toothbrush sounded good to me.
Using the toothbrush is easy - just like any other toothbrush. Squirt a little toothpaste on to the brush and get brushing.
The bristles feel very soft on your teeth which is nice. It is not a rough feeling at all. However, I think I got carried away with the brushing - because it felt so soft I had this idea that I could brush as hard as I could to get really clean teeth. Obviously this wasn't a good idea, as the first couple of times I used it my gums bled. Although it was more of the case of 'it's not you, it's me' kind of relationship with this brush.
The next time (and times after) I promised to be more gentle when using this toothbrush and I can say that it's been fine after and gives a good clean.
I like that the toothbrush is very light and quite small-ish as it makes brushing so much easier and doesn't make your arms ache which is good.
If you have sensitive teeth then I would definitely recommend this toothbrush to you. Be careful though - and remember not to brush too hard!
Thanks for reading!
