Not a soft brush!
Bought this because it’s supposedly a soft brush! But absolutely not ! It not only was scrubbing off the enamel from my teeth ! It damaged my gums

Was excited to try this but found the head too bulky to use comfortably so have relegated it to household cleaning duties. Still good to see plastic alternatives on sale in Tesco and will try others or an improved version.
Goes into the recycling - no more plastic!
One more bit of plastic is eliminated. And after 6 decades of my using plastic toothbrushes, it's about time. From the grip perfect shape of the bamboo handle, smoothed with wax, to the cardboard box package, everything except the bristles can be recycled. Easy to pluck those out with pliers. And as a toothbrush, it does the business. Even better than the previous plastic variety. It may seem to be a pricey purchase but over 3 months use it will only cost a few pennies a day. Less when you catch it on sale. Try it and you'll be glad you switched.
Easy and gentle to use.
So far so good. Easy to use, gentle on the teeth but feels thorough. Unlike some other reviewers I didn't find it bulky or awkward in the mouth. Not had it long so don't know how durable it will be but will order another. This was my first bamboo toothbrush.

I love bamboo items, and when I saw this I had to buy and give it a try. I had for a few months now but it has suddenly got mould spores all over probably due to the bamboo got left wet a few times. Will now be looking for another to buy which is not bamboo or plastic

I was impressed with this toothbrush as it was very gentle on the teeth and seemed to get in all the areas of the teeth with less effort. The density of the bristles meant less toothpaste was needed as it lathered up inside the mouth very well.(too well with my usual amount!!!!) The wooden handle was easy to hold and when washed well after use and left to dry looked as good as new.I noticed that when it was time for my new toothbrush (app.10-12 weeks) the bristles were not all bashed down and ruined as on plastic toothbrushes. I do believe another couple of weeks wear could be had as I always clean my brushes very well after each use.Great for the environment as it can all be recycled I believe ,as can the attractive packaging. No more plastic brushes for me.
My previous bamboo toothbrush (Tepe) was better than this. I've found it awkward to use. As another reviewer said, there is too much material around the edge of the bristles and this makes it uncomfortable in my mouth. I like the appearance of it and its environmental credentials but I will not be buying another one.
Very poor compared to other bamboo brushes
I've had several bamboo toothbrushes all of which have been fantastic. This is not the case for this one. The head is too bulky firstly and prevents you from getting into the tighter areas around the teeth. The back of the brush hits your gums and other teeth when brushing. Secondly the handle is very uncomfortable to hold. The edges are not smoothed off at all. Very poor execution by Colgate here. They need to improve this.
