Are you looking for a unique gift or unique toothbrush? If so I have just the one for you! I received a recycled dollar bill toothbrush
to check out from Radius
and they`re offering one to my readers as well!
RADIUS was founded on the Caribbean island of Tortola. James O`Halloran and Kevin Foley were architects who were fascinated by the idea of a functional and enjoyable toothbrush. They were appalled at the small head, hard toothbrushes of the day. Research indicates that the major problem in oral hygiene is that of compliance -people don`t use toothbrushes for long enough and tend to keep their toothbrush for too long. Dentists believe that with diligence - teeth and gums could be perfectly maintained for a lifetime. The averageÂ brushing time is from 31 to 65 seconds, depending on age or sex. The average toothbrush is thrown away after 10 months. RADIUS aimed to make the toothbrush comfortable,enjoyable and effective. With a mass of very soft bristles, a large head area for low pressure brushing and a comfortable handle, this toothbrush would let you brush lightly and accurately.
So what do I think?
I had received the medium toothbrush made from old recycled bills to check out. I actually originally requested a soft bristle brush because I do have sensitive gums, but still had received the medium bristle brush. I`m sure that was a mistake, but a little disappointing since it sort of makes me feel like my email was a bit disregarded - but as I said it`s a mistake anyone could make so not a huge big deal. One thing I did like was the unique look, feel and style of the toothbrush. The ergo style handle made it easy to hold the toothbrush for use which is definitely a plus.Â The RADIUS Source Toothbrush utilizes replacement head technology to reduce waste by 93%. The Source has an ergonomic handle made from 50% recycled materials that can be right or left handed. The toothbrush is BPA free and the handle is made of bio-plastic.
Another thing I noticed about this toothbrush is the unique style toothbrush head. While it is a bit different I found that it`s a bit large compared to regular sized toothbrushes. I have a small mouth so being able to continue to use this toothbrush won`t work for me because of that purpose and my husband had even found that the size was a bit large for his mouth as well.
When using it, despite the fact I generally use soft bristles, I found the medium seemed to work fine on my sensitive gums. They were actually pretty soft. So that was a pleasant surprise to me.
Overall I had an alright experience with this product. The toothbrush is unique and I love trying unique things and it did ship out quickly. It`s also made of quality materials and meant to last which are some more pluses. The fact of the larger head though is what drives me away, but that`s based off my own personal preference for toothbrush sizes. Would I recommend this product? If you have a big mouth then I think it would work just fine for you, but if you have a small mouth as I do or was looking at this for a child then I would have to say Â this isn`t the product for you. On the other hand, Radius does offer a variety of other toothbrushes to check out if you still want a new brush that is unique to your style. If I could make 1 suggestion to Radius it would be to place the toothbrush head size in the description just for the sake of customers like myself who have to be particular on the toothbrush sizes they use. Otherwise this company is a great company with unique products!
