Product 28: Marvis Cinnamon MInt
So one of the samples I’ve been sitting on until my vacation was Marvis Cinnamon Mint toothpaste. Marvis is one of those high end toothpastes that I enjoyed using even though I had every mixed thought about it during the trial process.
I’ve been looking forward to my Marvis toothpaste trial. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while. I heard from a dentist who comes into Schillers that he thought it cleaned better then most toothpastes but at the same time, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to spend the $10.00 for a tube of toothpaste. Quite frankly it’s a bit steep for a post-graduation life, so if it wasn’t for the free sample, I’m not sure if I would have tried it this year. Since I held onto this sample, I got to hear the glowing reviews from my co-workers who enjoyed the sample.
The first thing I noticed when I first used it was that it had a similar consistency/texture as a prescription toothpaste I’ve used (and never liked). But I was so glad that unlike my prescription toothpaste, this toothpaste actually foamed up. So when I was brushing it really felt like I was getting a good clean without having to brush my gums raw.
I enjoyed the flavor of the toothpaste too. There was just that hint of cinnamon. It wasn’t overwhelming but it seemed to attack some of the toughest odors with a fairly decent result. I will admit when I went a little heavy on the garlic, I did have to brush my teeth twice to make sure I didn’t have garlic breath. But if I’m brushing with a toothpaste that is making me feel clean and tastes good, I’m totally cool with brushing twice.
So all in all, I like the Marvis toothpaste. I’m debating on trying a different flavor the next time I purchase the toothpaste. I know it will make the inner Suzie Orman scream at me for being wasteful with my money. But I think in the end it’s worth it.
