Tesco Value Toothbrush
Advantages: cheap, does the job ok
Disadvantages: design, not as good as other brushes
The Value range at Tesco, offers basic, everyday products at low, affordable prices.
The Tesco Value Toothbrush comes in a pack of 2. The toohbrushes are placed within a clear plastic pack with a few pieces of information. Each toothbrush claims to have a "medium texture" and boasts "rounded filaments" which help protect the teeth and gums.
This 2 pack of toothbrushes will cost you only 10p and they are available from Tesco stores and www.tesco.com.
I try to brush my teeth twice a day and use a mouthwash afterwards. I've had lots of problems with my teeth over the past few years and need a toothbrush that will clean them though be kind to my sensitive gums. It is recommended that we change our toothbrush every 3months. I suffer with bleeding gums on a regular basis and even though I clean my toothbrush after each use, I like to change it every month to keep it fresh.
I have used lots of different branded toothbrushes over the last few years and find them pretty much up to the same standard..just differently designed! I purchased a pack of the Value Toothbrushes around 2months ago when out shopping. You can't buy much for 10p nowadays so I though I'd give them a try..if they weren't for me then it wasn't a major loss financially.
~Brush Brush Til My Teeth Are Sparkling!~
Well I know my teeth will never be sparkly white, but I can keep them clean! These toothbrushes are plain white and to be honest, they look a bit like pregnancy testing sticks near the bottom before nipping in to a thin neck and then a standard brush head. The bristles on the brush aren't anything spectacular. They are white and set out in 4 rows but if they clean my teeth I am happy!
The toothbrush can be easily gripped and despite being rather thin, isn't flimsy. I have used various toothpastes on my brush including the Value one and Colgate/Macleans. The brush softens slightly when water is applied but isn't as flexible as a more expensive brush. Once the toothpaste is spread on the brush head, I can get to work on cleaning my full mouth.
The thin neck allows the brush to get right into every part of my mouth and allows me to clean the back of my teeth and get into the areas where plaque seems to stick. The brush feels quite firm against my teeth and gums but very gentle even with excessive force. I don't brush my teeth too hard as any toothbrush rubbing my gums too much results in bleeding which isn't pleasant. The combination of pressure from this toothbrush and also my choosen toothpaste, is sufficient to remove the majority of the plaque on my teeth and leave my mouth clean and fresh.
~Recommendation and Conclusion~
These toothbrushes are not the best but certainly do the intended job. They clean up well and hold their shape when rinsed and each brush has done me fine for the month I've wanted to use it for. They are also cheap enough for cleaning in small, hard to reach areas.
Overall a cheap, value bargain! Thanks for reading :)
Summary: ok for the money
