GoodMouth Subscription Box Review – September 2014
GoodMouth is a dental care subscription box that sends you tooth brushes and floss which are recommended according to your personalized profile monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly (your choice). For every subscription purchased, GoodMouth donates 2 brushes, or the equivalent in dental care, to someone in need.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription: GoodMouth
The Cost: starts at $4.95 per shipment (your personal plan is very customizable to your own needs)
The Products: Replacement manual toothbrushes or electric toothbrush heads, and floss
Ships to: US
You can customize your plan according to many things, including number of people in your household. My plan is for two people (my husband and I), so we got 2 toothbrush kits. Every kit in this subscription comes in its own mesh bag at sign-up.
The two kits in the box were the Pink Chameleon with waxed floss, and the Blue Jaguar with waxed floss (“chameleon” and “jaguar” are the names of the toothbrush models, and we selected the colors we wanted them in).
This Pink Chameleon brush was selected for me because it’s a good fit for an average-sized, adult mouth and also for its soft bristles to help with my sensitive teeth.
(Note: all brushes come in an extra, plastic wrapper for sanitation! I unwrapped these brushes before taking photos.)
This Blue Jaguar brush was selected for my husband since it is good for average-sized, adult mouths and has a slightly larger brush head and bristles. I actually prefer this brush, too – the shape of the handle is really comfortable and is rubberized for good grip.
Verdict: My GoodMouth subscription cost $15.95 for two manual brushes ($8.95) and 2 packages of floss ($3.50 each, so $7 total). I really like the design of the Jaguar brush, but everything in this kit feels high-quality. Personally, I prefer to use electric brushes, but the one I use now isn’t one of the three models they provide replacement heads for (the Sonicare E-Series, Sonicare Pro Results, or the Oral-B Precision Clean).
I do want to point out that I like the online profile customization. I thought it was very thorough and asked about things I didn’t even think about (mouth sizes, sensitivity/periodontal disease, braces, etc).
Buying replacement tooth brushes or brush heads is, admittedly, something I don’t really think about much even though I know I should. I think a subscription box is a great idea for me to make sure I keep up my toothbrush hygiene without having to think about it.
What do you think about the GoodMouth subscription? How often do you replace your brushes currently?
