Advantages: Really clean feeling, Easy to grip, Trusted brand
Disadvantages: If you're concerned about the price of your toothbrush, then this isn't one of the cheapest ones - but it's not going to break the bank at £2.49!
Colgate Sensation Cleaning Tip toothbrush has recently become my favourite toothbrush... Until now I never had a favourite, and would just choose a toothbrush based on what looked good, what I'd seen advertised, or one I'd heard of. I've never been one to buy cheap value brand type toothbrushes and would much rather spend that bit extra on one that will really get my teeth as clean as possible. 2 months ago I purchased my first Colgate Sensation Cleaning Tip toothbrush and it certainly won't be my last!!!
The toothbrush itself has a subtly curved handle - the curves, accompanied by the fact that part of the handle has a wrap-around grip on it, means the toothbrush sits comfortably in your hand, and makes it easy to use without fear of slippping should it get wet resulting in that painful situation where you jab the inside of your mouth! Supposedly the "Round, contoured handle" will help you "to angle the brush exactly as you need" - and it does!
Colgate didn't waste the mouthful of a name (Colgate Sensation Cleaning Tip toothbrush) just because the toothbrush has a nice handle however... the part that does the hard work (and does it well) is the head. The head of the toothbrush is about 3cm long and at its widest point is just over 1 cm wide. This is fairly big in comparison to some toothbrushes and takes a while to get used to if you're changing from a toothbrush with a smaller head, however it's size isn't so large it's uncomfortable, and once you've got used to it you no longer notice it. The lower two-thirds of the bristles on the head of the toothbrush appear to be standard toothbrush bristles. They're white and straight, and that's about as interesting as it gets. The top third of the bristles however are blue and white, and on closer inspection you can see that actually each bristle is a twist of blue and white - these twisted bristles are designed to gently scrub a
way stubborn plaque "even in the most difficult areas". These special twisted bristles are what gives the brush its name and well deserved it is too. Additionally, all of the bristles have a rounded end to help protect from damaging sensitive gums - due to the size of the bristles it's difficult to tell just how rounded they are, but as they've done no damage to my gums I'm willing to take Colgate's word on that one!
So does the toothbrush do the job? Yes. I can honestly say that from the first time I used this toothbrush my teeth felt much cleaner than normal - really smooth to the tongue. This feeling seems to last for most of the day, and, as I've not changed my toothpaste I can only put it down to the work of this toothbrush and its cleaning tip.
The Colgate Sensation Cleaning Tip toothbrush is available in most supermarkets, priced at around £2.49 and as with most toothbrushes, is available in a variety of colours. Next time you're in need of a new toothbrush (dentists recommend changing your toothbrush at least every 3 months) - bear this one in mind - it's definitely worth a try!
