BrushBox Review by Mel – April 2018

Never in my life have I been so excited to receive a box that is not full of food or skincare! BrushBox has had me excited since I spoke to its founder Mike Donovan on the phone.
I am a busy mum of 2 boys, my partner works 300 miles away, I run his business and also BoXession is a full-time thing for me at the moment. I love my life, but I tell you, anything that can potentially make my life simpler makes me all giddy! I have spreadsheets, a planner and a calendar with reminders. So a box that means one less thing to remember has already won me over, and that’s before it has even landed!
It came in a grey plastic posting bag, and inside were 2 boxes. One blue and one pink. The pink one was a bit bigger. When I spoke to Mike about reviewing for him, he explained that the children’s brush would likely be a bit small for my eldest, so he kindly sent me a 2 person box (1 Adult, 1 Child) for Archie and I, and the single box is for Joel (age 10).
It is worth mentioning that if you were only ordering one box, they would fit directly through your letterbox, so no red card of doom, ha!

I unboxed live, I always like to gauge an honest reaction. If you missed it, you can catch it by pressing play below…

If watching that was not enough to make you click buy, then read on and you will…

So what was inside my boxes?

  • 1 Tongue Cleaner

Total = £5.50 per month (£10.99 payable every 2 months)

Archie & I Box:

  • 1 Adult’s Smooth Bamboo Toothbrush
  • 1 Child’s Curved Bamboo Toothbrush
  • 2 months supply of Toothpaste for 2 people (4 tubes)
  • 2 Floss
  • 2 Tongue Cleaners

  2. Just the 2 of us – £3 per person per month (£11.98 every 2 months).
  3. A funky 3 – £2.75 per person per month (£16.47 every 2 months).
  4. An awesome foursome – £2.50 per person per month (£19.96 payable every 2 months).

Brush Options?

  • Pure – A modern twist on an old classic.
  • Smooth Bamboo – Eco-friendly and ergonomic: + £0.50 per person per month.
  • Curved Bamboo – Sleek & stylish: + £0.50 per person per month.

Optional Extras 

  • Add some funky floss! This ranges from 75p – £1 per person per month.
  • A Talented tongue cleaner! This ranges from 75p – £1 per person per month.
  • Both of the above, between £1.25 – £1.50 per person per month.

The first thing that catches my eye with these boxes is just how professional the entire package is. From the printing inside the box lid explaining how to brush your teeth correctly, to the fact that every item is boxed and branded with their logo. I love all of the different colours. It makes what can become a mundane everyday chore really quite fun!
I actually think these may last longer than the 2 month, I mean just look how many toothpastes I have…
I am also a huge fan of how fabulous my new brush, tongue cleaner and toothpaste look in my en suite, as they match and I am slightly OCD.
I have never used a Bamboo Toothbrush, but I can safely say that I will be from now on. I have already been eyeing up the purple one on their website.
The toothpaste actually tastes really nice! I was surprised, as lets face it sometimes they are just yuk. The tongue brush I have never used before in this design, but I also really like this. It is so easy that is just stands next to my brush so I don’t forget to use it. I am still struggling to floss once a day, but this is more of a time constraint than anything else really. I am always in a rush!
Archie loves his little brush, and I think that having a new one land every 2 months makes it very exciting for younger ones. He is old enough to know what it is for, and seemed quite impressed that the postman brought him a new one.
Joel could not get his head around why his brush is not plastic, so he donated his bamboo one to Rob. He says can he have a plastic one next time. This is not a negative towards brush box, Joel is ASD so can find change really difficult to deal with. He is using the tongue brush though as it is plastic so that’s ok (he says).

Our Verdict?

This is going in my April Fave’s live at the end of the month. I am really impressed with the whole process. The website is simple, sleek, and professional. The company is owned by one man who is passionate about what he does. Would I subscribe? I absolutely would! I also have to mention their Instagram, I have popped a link below, their feed is really fab. Hats off to whoever does the photography.
I am a huge fan of small businesses, you will often hear me say this. There is one difference with BrushBox, I don’t think it will stay small for very long!
Don’t forget to use our money off code which is:

BOX5FREE for £5 off!!

This means you can get a single person box for as little as £1.99, and postage is always FREE!
