I came across this toothbrush while browsing the store. I usually purchase the Sensodyne toothbrushes, but the difference in price was pretty big. The Asda sensitive toothbrush was under two pounds which i though was very very cheap compared to most of the sensitive toothbrushes available.
The colors of the toothbrush are quite appealing. They are available in a whole host of colors which I think is quite important if you are buying this brush for young children. Color is most things is good for kids, but with a toothbrush it is even more so.
The product was packaged very well, which is something i look for, especially with it going into my mouth! The handle is designed very well, it is not too chunky like some of them.
The most important aspect to a toothbrush to me is the bristles. I have always suffered from bleeding gums which can be a pain when buying any toothbrush, but the bristles on this one are soft enough not to affect my gums, which i know is also important to others. If you have sensitive teeth, then this brush will be great for you, because it is not as hard on your teeth like some of the other brushes. I have always had sensitive teeth and this brush worked great for me.
This toothbrush is surprisingly cheap for what it is and is near enough an identical brush to the ones i have been using, the only main difference i can see is the price! It is remarkable how similar the brush is too others.
So if you are looking for a reliable brush which is easy on your teeth, then i do really recommend this product, especially if you are looking for a cheaper option.
When it comes to toothbrushes I usually opt for a Colgate one or some sort of branded one I have heard of. However the other day I needed a new toothbrush, was in Asda and picked this one up and not only did I pick it up because it was cheap but because this particular one is meant for sensitive teeth (which I have along with an enamel problem) and this is also described as a soft brush and this was the only one I could see that was soft bristled that I could see which is what I really wanted.
The brush came on a cardboard backing with a see-through plastic cover over the actual brush to keep it clean and in place. I went for the pink and white coloured toothbrush so the card itself the brush came on in my case was a pink coloured one and on that we are told that it is Protect Toothbrush 'Sensitive, Soft' and that it is an Asda soft tapered bristle brush designed for sensitive gums, that it has a small head size and incorporates a tongue cleaner on the back of the brush head. On the other side of the card we are told a bit about the product and the features the brush has to it and how to use it, cautions are given and contact details for Asda are listed. Nice enough packaging this is and informative enough as well and packaging colour depends on the brush colour you opt for and this was also available in blue and green when I bought mine.
The Brush Itself:
This brush is simply lovely quality! As I stated earlier my brush is white and light pink in colour and it has a nice tapered and long handle to it with a white soft head to the top of it with a light pink tinge to the outside of the bristles. This has a an ice rubber feel to it when using it and is easy and none slip to grip, the brush head is slightly flexible so I don't end up brushing my teeth too hard and the brushes although soft are very effective indeed and none malting. Although he brush head is described as small it really isn't too small or my mouth. To the back of the brush there are raised lines and little bumps meant to be used against your tongue to help clean it which is the only thing I can slate about this brush head as it does nothing for me at all!
From the looks of this brush to its ease of handling and effectiveness this is simply a really good quality brush and just what I was after so I'm well pleased with this purchase and will certainly buy this again when this one gives up the ghost in about 3 months time!
Only available from Asda stores costing just £1.00 a toothbrush!
