Marvellous Marvis

THE STORY: I wouldn’t normally rave about a toothpaste. They are usually mundane, minty and over-hyped with claims that I find hard to believe. Then along came Marvis. It’s a classic Italian toothpaste from Florence and not only packs a punch – it tastes like toothpaste should taste. Fresh, powerful and full of complex flavour. It’s got a thick texture and each one combines an additional flavour – Jasmine, Ginger, Cinnamon, Aamarelli Liquorice to name a few. I tried Ginger Mint and was sold on the first trial run. After brushing three times with it, I can definitely confirm that is the business. Traditionally packaged in silver tubes, the toothpastes do what a good toothpaste should – prevent tooth decay, tartar, plaque and whiten teeth. Those super-cool guys at Niven & Joshua ensure that the UK is adequately stocked with this little marvel. Am I raving? Indeed I am. from £2.75
