Review: WooBamboo Toothbrush


WooBamboo Toothbrush Green People Toothpaste

I bought Green People Minty Cool toothpaste and received a Woobamboo soft standard handle toothbrush free of charge. The funny thing is this brush is not sold on the website I ordered from so it really was a surprise extra.

The Woobamboo does look plain and boring next to my regular Wisdom Individual toothbrush but my inner geek secretly loves the natural design. The handle fits comfortably in my hand and is made from biodegradable and sustainably grown bamboo. I have always preferred toothbrushes without tongue scrapers as they seem to irritate my gums. This is not an issue with the Woobamboo toothbrush the bristles and head size feel comfortable in my mouth. 

Woobamboo toothbrushes are available for Adults and Children with different options for handle size and bristles. I tracked down a UK stockists but the minor downside is the brushes will set you back £5.99 or you can opt for an Annual Subscription (4 brushes) £19.99. If you are based in US visit www.woobamboo.com.

As for the Green People Toothpaste, I am sad to report I was not impressed. I don’t mind the lack of foam and slightly runny consistency but it does not leave my mouth feeling fresh. I like a mint flavour that packs a punch and this one does not hit the spot for me.

Turns out I'm a bigger dork than I first thought, tell me I am not the only one who gets excited about toothbrushes?

  2. Hi Sarah,

    Thanks for the review of the toothbrush! Are the bristles made of bamboo too? I'm searching for something that is sustainable and doesn't use animal by-products.

    Thanks!

    1. Glad I'm not the only one, I like a nice strong mint that makes your mouth tingle a little and freshen breath :)

  6. Bamboo toothbrush! Always thought that it's a good idea to reduce at least 20 centimeters of plastic waste. I have mine in different brands, Go Bamboo and Enviromental Toothbrush (mostly from Aus & NZ) <3
    About the toothpaste: maybe it needs more mint leaves? XD

    1. yes the toothpaste needs more mint flavour for it to be to my personal taste, I'm sure others will find it suits them.

  7. I've been wondering about natural toothbrushes and this one looks really interesting! I've tried the Green People Peppermint & Aloe Vera toothpaste but I wasn't impressed either. Which natural toothpaste is your favourite? I have found some of the Jason ones to be the best x

    1. This is the first natural toothpaste I have tried but I have been recommended Aloe Dent Whitening. I use Sarakan mouthwash and they have a toothpaste which I am yet to try out.
