I received a complimentary Colgate® SlimSoft™ toothbrush (as well as Colgate toothpaste and mouthwash) through the Influenster program for review.
When I first felt the bristles with my thumb, I was actually impressed with how soft and flexible they were. Looking at the bristles, you can see how thin they become at the very end, which allows the impressive sweeping action. The feel is a bit like some children’s toothbrushes.
The brush overall has a very slim profile. It’s fairly comfortable to hold, though I’d like these bristles offered on some slightly more grippy handles.
This really works for me. My teeth are rather crooked and have some strange spacing in spots, and this is one of the first toothbrushes I’ve used that really cleans between and around. I didn’t expect to be so impressed with it, but I really was! I actually find myself brushing my teeth for longer with this toothbrush, which is definitely a good thing.
I’ve honestly always been a “whatever’s cheapest” toothbrush buyer. I’ve tried a lot of different bristle arrangements, but I think I’ll be sticking with this guy!
