True White Mirai Toothbrush - Review and Giveaway

I love gadgets and I'm especially fond of toothbrushes. It might sound a bit bonkers, but I have always felt you should invest as much as you can in your teeth. Dental work is very expensive, not to mention pretty unpleasant! A little time and money spent now, could prevent a lot of pain, and even more money spent, later on. It's also reassuring to know you are doing the best for your teeth. You only get one adult set, after all. So, when True Company offered to send us a new design of toothbrush, worth £150, to review, how could I say no? Curiosity won me over and I couldn't wait to give it a try. The good news is, they have also agreed to send one to a lucky winner, so don't forget to enter the competition at the bottom of the post!

When the Mirai Toothbrush arrived, it was presented in a high quality box, with all the hallmarks of being a superior product. The instructions were brief, but very straightforward, and told me all I needed to know about my new gadget. It looked pretty space-age and was smaller than I was expecting, but with a much bigger head than I'm used to. There are various levels of vibration, allowing for personal preference, all providing a gentle, but effective massage motion. The appliance is made entirely of silicone and is very comfortable to hold. The silicone promotes good hygiene by fighting the build up of bacteria and promoting a much more sanitary experience. The high-intensity pulsation is far removed from the usual heavy-duty vibration from a cheaper device, that can be overpowering and lead to an uncomfortable ringing in the ears. It is surprisingly powerful though and might be worth starting on a lower setting to begin with, if you are not used to it.



The biggest difference I noticed, compared to my usual model, was in the bristles. As you can see from the picture above, they are tapered, and quite chunky. This feels a little strange to begin with, and takes a bit of getting used to. When I used it for the first time, the effect wasn't as obvious as I was used to, and I was unsure if it was as thorough. Once I had finished though, I was immediately pleased with the result. Straight away, it felt as good as a professional polish and this made me realise that, over time, this product, despite the cost, could pay for itself. There were only a couple of minor negatives. The appliance is charged via a USB, which is a little less convenient than having the charger available in the bathroom where you are inevitably going to use the product. The silcone also delivers a sightly strange taste and sensation. I quickly got used to it, and I am happy to say it is my preferred device now, but,  I will admit, initially, it was a bit like chewing a flip flop. However, I would highly recommend persevering with this new design, as it offers a sparkling result in spite of it's smaller size!

  5. When I was little I left a note for the tooth fairy to ask if she was real as I was sure 'she' was my dad and I found a note under my pillow the next morning, along with a £1 coin and it said 'I've taken the tooth from out of your mooth and I am real!' I believed it at the time lol!

  6. my daughter lost her tooth down the side of the bed. and I found the tooth but didnt say anything and just put the money where the tooth had dropped. I her to look under the bed just in case and she was amazed to find the money there. I told her the tooth fairy can sniff out the tooth where ever it is!

  7. When my kids were small I used to whip the tooth away and pop it in a little box, leaving 50p behind (quite generous in those days) - not sure what I was going to do with old teeth lol but there you go. My son found them one day and put the lot under his pillow in the hope of a bumper windfall.

  11. To be honest when my children lose a tooth if their room is a mess I leave a note by the door saying that the tooth fairy was unable to gain entry so will unfortunatley have to come back and try another night. Works a treat....shame they only have so many teeth to lose lol.

  16. Being a terrible mother I forgot to put the money under the pillow one night! I'd to sneak in & hide it inside the pillowcase to avoid maximum tears in the morning!

  17. Our tooth fairy seems to be pretty rubbish at the moment. She always seems to be a couple of days late.
    I have to make sure the children realise just how busy she is and that sometimes she just can't get here straight away. ��

  18. I don't have children. I can't remember ever believing in the tooth fairy when I was little and I was scared of Santa so that made life easy for my parents!

  19. We were once a week late with the tooth fairy delivery and my daughter was so upset each day so the tooth fairy left a bit more than usual

    ReplyDelete
  20. I remember my daughter lost her tooth before she had the chance to pop it under her pillow, she was worried the tooth fairy wouldn't appear, we searched every where, The last resort was opening the hoover bag and rummaging through that and YES there it was !!! hehe

    ReplyDelete
  21. Haha we had to tell our son that the toothfairy has the day off on Sundays as our son lost his tooth on a sunday night when we had no change

    ReplyDelete
  22. My son woke up when I was just putting money on his pillow, I told him that I bumped into the tooth fairy outside his room who told me to put the money under his pillow for her as she was so busy that night lol, and he was happy with that, bless him :-)

  23. When one of my the little ones back molars came out it was put under the pillow with a note asking if it was worth more because it was bigger than the rest of them that were worth £1! Needless to say a £2 was left by the tooth fairy purely for the inituative to ask!

    ReplyDelete

  27. My son lost his second tooth and luckily didn't remember when he first got up. While cleaning his teeth hr suddenly did and said "oh I wonder if the tooth fairy's been" With horror I realised she very definitely hadn't, managed to shut the door and keep him in the bathroom, ran to hubby's wallet which amazingly had £1 coin in it, and quickly did the switch. All was well when he went to check after finishing his teeth. pheeeeeew

  28. I don't have children so when I was little I remember leaving a note saying something like please give the money to someone who needs it more I remember waking up with a shocked look on my mums face and saying where's the tooth fairy she replied she's been and must of give it me lol

  30. I just remember being a child and having a wobbly tooth, I woke up and my tooth had gone and there was no money under my pillow I was not happy. After a few days I ended up finding that as I was sleeping on my bunk bed my tooth had fallen out and to the back of the bed I was so ecstatic when I found it and the next morning there was a nice shiny pound under my pillow :)

  31. Many (many) years ago now we were down on the beach at Stevenston with the three youngest children. One of the boys ( both 10) shouted "oh loom there is the ferry" and daughter 6 replied what the tooth fairy? where I cant see her? So instantly the boys played along and said she was on the ferry and was going to Arran, so DD3 believed for a long while that the tooth fairy lived on Arran and took the ferry home every morning.
    Love your comment about chewing a flip flop, the first sonic brush I tried I was not so sure about either.

  35. I think I got a shilling (5p) from the tooth fairy! we await the first wobbly tooth from our little chap

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've been wracking my brains but I can't think of anything remotely funny that has ever happened as far as the tooth fairy goes! All been very boring and uneventful thus far - probably a good thing :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. My son always wanted to meet the tooth fairy so used to hide his tooth in the hope that they would wake him up to ask him where the tooth was! Complete nightmare.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My child once thought she would outwit the tooth fairy by not telling anyone that her tooth had come out! Outcome was one very upset child unfortunately and one very guilty mum for not noticing!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Tooth fairy did one 'forget' and then left like, a fiver instead. This was my parents by the way, not me. And the recipient was my brother, not me :(

  40. When I was a small child, I envisaged the tooth fairy looking like a tooth with wings! Silly I know, but true ...

  41. We was on holiday in spain and I only had peseta currency at the time when my daughter lost her first tooth, so I put the smallest note which I thought was around a £5 but was in fact around £45!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Our front door led onto a corridor in a sheltered housing where my mum was the warden. For some reason we put our teeth under the front door mat and covered it in salt. I used to cover mine in loads of salt so i could see if the tooth fairys hoovered as well. My mum must have been really annoyed having to not only leave the money but also to have to clean up all the salt x

  43. we've forgotten to do the tooth fairy on more than one occasion. The first excuse we used was, the weather was so bad, the tooth fairy couldn't get here and another one was, their bedrooms were so messy, the fairy couldn't actually get into the room!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I once forgot to leave the £1 under my daughters pillow and had to make up a very hasty excuse when she came down the stairs in the morning with the tooth in her hand. I said the tooth fairy had rung to apologise for not collecting the tooth and had promised to double the reward instead!

    ReplyDelete
  45. When my son's first tooth fell out we left it by the bed and in the night the tooth fairy came and left some money. Being young he totally believed it all....until some time later when he found the tooth wrapped in tissue safely stored away in a purse!! He was most upset that the tooth fairy was not real!

  46. The Tooth Fairy was often 'delayed' when I was younger, I used to get 'I owe you's'.

  47. my childrens tooth fairy is usually pretty reliable, until my daughters last tooth (i forgot! no excuse, just completely slipped my mind) that night i had to write a little note, covered in glitter and gems from 'the tooth fairy' explaining she had too many teeth that night and didnt have time to get to everyone, she left £1 and a new fairy money box to put her money in :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. When my daughter lost her first tooth she asked me what the tooth fairy does with the teeth. I told her that the tooth fairy makes a magical pearly necklace with the teeth. She looked at me her eyes big and bright, "so that's why teeth get holes in them to make it easy for the tooth fairy." She said innocently. I laughed so much my stomach hurt.

  49. My children always got the tooth fairy visiting and leaving a £2 coins under their pillows. My daughter called it a gold coin.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I don't remember anything unusual from being tooth fairy to my daughter. It was funny at the time remembering how much we would get and how much should a child now get. She always knew it was us really, but fun to pretend.

    ReplyDelete
  51. My granddaughter stayed over and I knew she had a very wobbly tooth but it hadn't fallen out. In the morning she was very upset that the tooth fairy hadn't been and showed me that her tooth had come out after she went to bed, she had put it under her pillow expecting the tooth fairy to turn up. I had to tell her that as she was not at her own house the tooth fairy had probably not been able to find her as my house is not on the route because no children live here. She bought it and took it home and the tooth fairy visited the next night. Bad Grandma for not knowing to check under the pillow.

  52. I told the little one that the fairy had been delayed (I forgot) and to take a small coin from my purse for a lollipop as compensation. My sister took her to the ice-cream van and I was horrified to find that she took £5 note and bought a big ice-cream and sweets!

  53. My son left his tooth at school so had to leave a note from the tooth fairy to say would come and get the following night. He was happy to get a note and money

  56. Hmmm, throwing the tissue wrapped tooth my child had given me in the bin by accident. Then trying to distract child while I rummaged in a very gloopy bin for it!

  57. I remember waking up when my Dad was being the tooth fairy and accusing him of trying to steal my tooth. I was so cross with him and told him off because the tooth fairy wouldn't be able to leave me any money if he stole my tooth

  58. Tooth fairy must have lost her passport, she cant fly without one - she'd get shoot down!

  59. My nephew lost his first tooth when he was staying with us. I didn't have any change so we said the tooth fairy will come to his home and had the money there for him when he got home.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I remember completely forgetting one night and waking to a devastated child. I had to use a little slight of hand to find a coin on the floor that must have "fallen down" and blame the tooth fairy for forgetting to take the tooth with her

    ReplyDelete
  61. I remember once being left a 'pea' in place of my tooth. Turned out my big brother took the money and replaced it with a pea as a joke! I didn't see the funny side at the time!

    ReplyDelete
  62. We had to tell my niece that the tooth fairy was on holiday once but she was back the next day.

    ReplyDelete
  63. not being able to find the tooth and little one getting money and getting to keep the tooth. I had to make an excuse that the fairies bag was too full to carry the tooth.

    ReplyDelete
  64. One night the tooth fairy "forgot" to visit my daughter. The next morning, as she went downstairs to tell her dad, the tooth fairy made a "late" visit and popped the money under the pillow but, being the top bunk, was able to find the tooth to remove it. My daughter was told to check properly that the tooth fairy hadn't been and to check again. She went and checked and came back and confirmed that the tooth fairy definitely hadn't been!! So, in order to preserve the tooth fairy's identity for a bit longer, she paid another visit that night and removed the existing tooth. However, the tooth fairy never did discover whether my daughter was extremely crafty or whether the first coin had mysteriously disappeared!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Well my God-Daughter Sophie keeps telling me the more teeth she looses the more money she gets per tooth so I asked her where she got this information from & she replied the Tooth Fairy whispered it to me & she said that mum don't give me enough money as the tooth Fairy counted the money! My reply was oh right as I was was rather speechless!!
