September 18th - Colgate Slimsoft review

I'm not very adventurous when it comes to toothbrushes. If they clean my teeth and get off tooth sweaters (you know, the fuzzies on your teeth in the morning), I'm pretty much good. When I was notified that I'd been selected to try a new toothbrush, I was actually pretty excited because I thought hey, maybe this will blow my mind.
Influenster sent me the new Colgate Slimsoft toothbrush, along with some Colgate toothpaste and mouthwash. According to Colgate, the bristles on this brush are 17x thinner, which apparently is a good thing. I don't usually go for soft brushes, because I feel like they aren't cleaning my teeth aggressively enough. But these are apparently some magic, super deep-cleaning bristles.
So I tried out this magical soft toothbrush yesterday and today. It's not bad. It definitely feels softer than my normal toothbrush, and it's much easier to brush my gums without it hurting. But I feel like I couldn't scrub as thoroughly as I would like. The toothpaste was just their generic whitening one, and it was nice but not extraordinary. The mouthwash was pretty good since it didn't burn my mouth very much.
Basically, if you have sensitive gums or like soft toothbrushes, you will like this brush. It's gentle, and even though it doesn't feel exceptionally deep-cleaning, you can tell that it's doing it's job. I probably won't purchase one after I'm done with this one, but I of course am very thankful to Influenster for letting me try it out!

Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
