Goby is one of those social media brands— you see them on Instagram and you wonder what the hell is that and why do i want it.
I reached out to Goby and they were kind enough to send me a toothbrush to try out their system, and after using it for a few weeks now, I'm converted.
First, Goby feels really nice in your hand- and I mean this in a way less weirdly phallic way than it's coming off...
The handle is solid and grippy, but still smooth, aesthetically appealing, and comfortable, all while still being quite light.
The brush has one button that does everything, which is definitely an asset. Design is kept streamlined and it's still totally brusher friendly.
I love the orange, but it also comes in a few more colors, including black, blue, pink, and green. That's super nice for people buying more than one and who aren't trying to mix up their toothbrush with their skeevy younger brother ;).
I like the orange because it puts me in a better mood almost first thing in the morning- keeping things fun but it's not like a g g r e s s i v e l y fun first thing in the morning.
I think the thing that makes Goby stand out is the brush head. It's totally circular, rather than the standard oval pointed whatever that you always see.
It sounds like a so what moment, but it's actually important and works in your favor— you're forced to actually focus on each tooth and not rush through and it gives you this unparalleled just came from the dentist type of clean.
I'm not going to say you need to go run out buy a Goby and it'll change your live and you can't live without it, but it's one of those quality of life things.
Like, those nice showerheads that turn a daily chore into a moment of relaxation, or pre-sliced bread, Goby is massively more convenient, efficient, and cool and isn't totally completely necessary, but sure as hell makes life a little more enjoyable.
Goby says 'minimal effort, maximum clean' and it really rings true.
According to Goby, they have:
Rotationally oscillating brush heads are proven to clean better than other types of brushes. Goby cleans up everything in its path, you simply guide it along.
All of this feels true while using Goby, and I'm really into it. My teeth feel cleaner, and I love that.
I did some research, and Goby is actually a really cool company. Goby says:
We also partner with NYU College of Dentistry's Global Student Outreach Program, donating a percentage of all sales to help provide dental services to people around the world as well as in our own backyard.
I really love when company gives back.
