Once time when I took a visit to the dentist, he wisely told me that you can actually associate toothbrushes to cars. For example, a cheap one shall be able to just get the job finished, but a more expensive and better one can do the job more extravagantly. So I had a think about what he told me, and then I decided to have a look at some of the new toothbrushes that had come out. Obviously there were the rotten cheap ones – which looked as tacky as ever. But there was one brush in particular which really stood out to me as it looked so good: the Colgate 360 toothbrush. It said it had new features that no other toothbrush had featured before, and as its design looked pretty neat, I thought “why not give it a go!”
For the last few weeks, I have been trialling the Colgate 360 toothbrush; trying to find the positives and negatives of the product. There are quite a few of both. I can tell you that before I started this “experiment”, I was one of those people that bought the cheap toothbrushes; yes I know I should be ashamed. But, I didn’t see any need to buy one that was more expensive if it were to do the same job.
One of these things that the Colgate 360 toothbrush had was that it actually had an in-built tongue cleaner. At first this did seem like a large gimmick to bring in the average consumer to buy it as it was something “innovative” (don’t mean to cause offense here). But the reason why they included it was because their lab experts and doctors had concluded that the build up of bacteria on our tongues is one of the main sources of why a person has bad breath. The tongue cleaner when used made my mouth shrivel up. The taste that came from it was horrible and the texture of it felt unusual. I would not recommend anyone to use the tongue cleaner as it looked and felt disgusting to be truthful.
I do have to say that on the whole, the premium toothbrush which is made by Colgate will do the main jobs that a toothbrush is meant to do very well. But these extra features which they have tried to combine with a toothbrush isn’t needed; much better tongue cleaners can be found on the market. The price the Colgate 360 toothbrush is sold at is fairly high in my opinion. On the whole, the quality of the toothbrush is still very good, and is worth buying just for the toothbrush for the good basic functions that it provides.
