“Good Vibrations”

published 17/03/2003

Procheap, cleans teeth with little effort

Consspeed can cause problems if you're not careful!

Those of you who read the title and assumed my op was about something different, go away now unless you want to read about an electric toothbrush... I say electric - to be fair, it's actually battery operated. The Colgate Actibrush takes two AA batteries, which, unlike most products, come with...

Proexcellent cleaning power, easy to use

Consreplacement heads can be costly

Being a sufferer of weak tooth enamel, hence prone to staining, the usual build up of plaque and tartar and all the rest of it I decided to put my pounds and pennies to the test to come up with a pain-free solution to help keep my ivory gnashers a little cleaner and free of such frequent...

ProSimple, quick, and very effective tooth care

ConsCan get messy, and no battery life indicator

I bought the Colgate Acti-brush back in April, as I was fed-up with the old fashioned brush. They didn’t last very long with me, the bristles would be all flattened in no time, and they are not exactly cheap for what they are. I’m also rather lazy, and the constant effort required...

“A great budget vibrator”

published 24/06/2002

ProReasonably priced, works well

ConsButtons are a bit fiddly

When my daughter turned five, I decided it was time to buy her a vibrator - and it’s so good, now the whole family uses it. I am talking, of course, about her Colgate Actibrush battery-powered toothbrush. We were going through that awkward five-year-old stage where she wouldn’t brush...

I bought this electric toothbrush because it was recommended to me by my dentist - or so I thought! As it turned out, when I went to see her, all smug, having bought my Colgate Actibrush, she told me it wasn't that one that she meant, it was the Braun Oral B one! I was SURE she said the Colgate...

ConsBattery Only

No! Not your dentures! I just meant SMILE! You know how it is when you go to the dentist and all he/she does is clean your teeth, and SOMEHOW afterwards, your teeth always manage to feel about half their usual size, and you can almost feel the wind whistling between them like stones in a Druidic...

ConsMine broke :(

I usually have an electric toothbrush however I am the kind of person who often has 3 toothbrushes on the go at one time! A few months ago I was in the local supermarket with my Mum when I decided to get a new toothbrush. This toothbrush was the Colgate Actibrush. I chose one which was pink in...

I love those toothpaste adverts, you know, the ones where the beautiful supermodels smile at you and it seems like all the light in the room is reflected from their mouths. It's amazingly funny how their teeth make that great little pingy noise and glare a blinding whiteness as if they have been...

If like me, you hate going to the dentists, then an electric toothbrush maybe for you. I have a phobia of dentists, which started when I was a child, but I will not bore you with the gory details now. I recently visited Boots with my partner and the Colgate Actibrush was on special offer, three...
