Have you Heard of Marvis?
I usually fairly familiar with beauty and skincare brands, but even I had not heard of this brand before. What's unique about them, is that they were founded in Florence, Italy and have been around since the 1950's; they were bought by the Ludovico Martelli Co. in the late 1990's. Their most popular flavor and product is their traditional "Classic Strong Mint" toothpaste, although there are quite a few fans of their other unique flavors like "Amarelli Licorice" & "Ginger Mint". Marvis also offers up their own toothbrush [$6]and mouthwash [$22.50]. Want to know more?!

I admit to being a bit skeptical when it came to this flavor initially...but it ended up being my top pick out of all 3 of these. It's a nice mix of mint and ginger and although you might think these 2 types of flavors would not be great together, but it's surprisingly pleasant. There is a very light, non-annoying tingle with all of the flavors that I at least tried out, but I also found this to be nice.
I will say that Marvis' toothpaste is fairly different in composition and feel- especially when it comes to the traditional toothpastes we use here in the U.S. But I noticed something with this product that I don't ever really seem to find with other brands I've tried thus far: it doesn't cause my sensitive teeth to hurt more, especially right after I've brushed. My teeth and mouth just feels clean and there's no pain- even afterwards :)
I know it seems that it's a bit odd to have such a flavor for a toothpaste, but it you happen to like licorice in general...you will absolutely LOVE this one! I actually do like licorice myself, so I was really excited to try this one. It came in a close 2nd to the Ginger Mint flavor and I honestly had a tough time deciding which was the best between the 2 ;)
The main reason that this one ended up missing out on first place, was that although I love licorice candy and the flavoring- the Ginger Mint was a really big surprise and I saw it being a flavor that almost anyone could appreciate.
I understand however, that licorice is normally a sort of acquired taste and not something that everyone exactly loves. When it comes to the look of these neat, retro tubes- I'm also a huge fan! It really does set the brand apart, not to mention that the quality is there too :)

If you're seeking a more traditional flavoring and approach, this is the way to go! It's got a light minty-flavor that doesn't overpower and won't sting, but it does have a nice, slight tingle :) You're mouth and teeth will feel super clean and you don't get any gritty feeling left on your teeth after using.
I noticed that some toothpastes don't always seem to get your teeth fully clean and if they do, they manage to utilize harsh chemicals and abrasives that can leave your teeth and mouth sore- particularly if you have sensitive teeth like I do! I didn't have that issue at all though with any of the Marvis toothpastes that I've used and this flavor is one that the entire family would love!
