Except this Monte Bianco one is so different it’s quite easy to review really. It’s a toothbrush that you keep forever – well the handle at least. When the brushes start to wear out you just buy a replacement head rather that a whole new brush – saving on waste and also using oil to make the plastic for a new brush.
It’s a very good idea and works well. I was afraid to take the head off at first as it was a little bit of a struggle and I was afraid of breaking it. But if they made it too easy it’d come off in your mouth I suppose. So Organic also sells the replacement heads too and at £3.50 for three, it makes economic sense to buy them as well as being green.
The head on my brush has nylon bristles, making it vegan-friendly, but they do make a version with natural bristles too which are made from boar hair. They don’t even hurt the boars, just shear them like sheep.
Brightly coloured, the Monte Bianco Clip is quite a stiff brush and a little shorter than my previous one which took me a little while to get used to. It’s compact size means I’ve been keeping it in my toiletry bag and using when I go away. I like it just as much as the Preserve one but wish they could combine the two – have one made from yoghurt pots but with a removable head.
The Monte Bianco Clip costs £2.60 from So Organic.
