Quip serving 🥟🥡🥠
“Are you taking pictures so you can make fun of my toothbrush on Instagram?” While not completely true, I did need S’ toothbrush to compare against my new Quip purchase. Overall, I’m happy with the brush but fair warning I am stepping up from a manual brush.
Quality 🥟 I’m admittedly terrible at brushing my teeth. Prior to electric toothbrushes, I’m not sure I ever brushed longer than 30 secs at a time. Quip has a simple 2 min brush, giving you a gentle vibration at every 30-sec interval to remind you to switch areas. I like the aesthetic of the brush itself, almost half the width of S’ Oral B toothbrush and seemingly more portable being battery-powered and accompanied by its to-go cap. As someone who is constantly unplugging S’ toothbrush to do my hair, the standalone Quip brush is a counter savior.
Deliver 🥡shipping is free on your starter kit and for ongoing subscriptions. I opted for the quarterly plan, and for $5 a quarter, Quip sends me a replacement head and AAA battery for my toothbrush.
Good Karma 🥠 Quip’s blog talks to the importance that its bristles are made of nylon, which is biodegradable. There are tips on how to repurpose the plastic containers that the replacement heads come in.
minor meddling: what could be better
Pricing 🍜 the toothbrush itself is $30 (plastic) or $45 (metal). There are multiple options depending if you choose to prepay for the year and/or include a subscription. For a d2c brand, the pricing itself didn’t wow me in comparison to existing electric toothbrushes. S’ Oral B brush was $40 and the heads can be bought in sets ranging from $2-6/head.
Customers 🥢 reviews seemed mixed. If you’re used to more aggressive electric modes, Quip may not be the brush for you, it only has one mode, but part of that is driven by the brush’s design to prevent people from brushing their teeth too hard.
Transparency 🍚 I was unable to determine where and how these brushes were manufactured
