The metal Quip Toothbrush starts at $40 and is very well-known from Instagram. Quip will send you a new head for your toothbrush every three months for a fee starting at $10. INSIDER's Celia Skvaril decided to test it against her $1 drugstore toothbrush and see if it lived up to the Instagram hype.

$40 Insta-Famous Quip Toothbrush VS. $1 Drugstore Toothbrush
No thank you. I love my electronic toothbrush, and it didn't cost $40. I'm not going to buy some trendy toothbrush because it's trendy. I can already choose the color of my toothbrush, and I'm not too lazy to go to the store every few months to get replacement heads.
This ad was garbage; Celia doesn't seem very bright and she obviously doesn't know how product comparisons are supposed to be done. She also doesn't know how to use electronic toothbrushes, and her gums must hate her for it. If you want to try to convince people to buy trendy bullshit, this is not the way to go about it.
So...you can't change the head of the brush? Nah thanks, I'd rather buy 1$ toothbrush every month or two.
Also, it can probably be used as a vibrator too, no way their designers would miss such an opportunity with a long handheld vibrating device. Not that it's a bad thing, just saying.
I'm sorry but you're not even using the electric toothbrush properly. You're meant to slowly move it around so it can do what its meant to do which is clean your teeth. If you move it around like a manual toothbrush, you're not letting it do its thing which is cleaning your teeth which defeats the purpose. BTW your teeth feel cleaner because you're brushing for longer. haha. Just some advice from a dental professional =)
Yay commercials. I especially like how they emulated diet commercials. You know the type where the before photo is of a sad looking model in bad lighting and the after photo is a happy model suddenly with make up and hair done while turned to one side so you think she lost a ton of weight. Yeah, notice the soft bright lighting of her holding the toothbrush at the end with fingers doing the Vanna white vs the crappy lighting and sad face of the awesome cvs $1 toothbrush.
Typical bad investigation for views... no control, only comparing two items, comparing an old thing to a new thing, having the person comparing them be totally new to that thing...
OF COURSE a girl who always used an old standard toothbrush is going to think her first new electric toothbrush is better. Smh
What about other toothbrush brands? Other drugstore brands, and Oral B and Sonicare? Shouldn't all the brushes be equally new? What about people who've used electric toothbrushes before?
I've been using the Quip for a while and compared to my ~$10 old proper electric toothbrush it's honestly far worse for actually cleaning your teeth. The Quip basically just vibrates, which while it kinda feels nice doesn't actually have any effect compared to just a standard, mechanical toothbrush, whereas any decent electric one will have the bristles rotate and guarantee you a good clean every time
So if it's 40$, you could have 40 one-dollar toothbrushes( 40 months!!!) and you won't have to replace it every 3 months for 10$( 3.33$/month).
One good thing I see in it is that it's half the price of an good electric toothbrush, but for me it's still makes no difference.
