Marvis is a very nice toothpaste. It has helped my teeth and gums a lot. I can actually tell the difference between when i used crest and once i started with marvis. It makes my teeth and gums feel a lot better. More solid. I hadn't really like brushing before. So I didn't have the best teeth but i can actually feel the changed since i started marvis even with my spotty memory on brushing! Great stuff I have the classic and aquatic mint and find both to be very refreshing.
I plan on trying the other 3 flavors by february

The toothpaste costs depending on who you get it from 5-8 dollars. And it is a bargin really at any price compared to crest.
I would buy it without blinking at 8 dollars. There is also this http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 52786&rd=1
They have it slightly lower.
You can also buy it from lee's razors or from classicshaving.

i can not tell a difference in my gums, but my teeth, yes. i use a oral b pulsating brush and with marvis, i can run my tongue over my teeth and gosh, it is just like from the dentist. also, the mintiness tends to remind behind a bit longer than with crest. i liked crest cinnamon rejuvenating effects, but don cyp is right, the fruit mint and ginger mint from marvis are great. a lady on ebay sold me 14 tubes at $5 each. im good for what, 2 years? just a little cheap extravagance

14 tubes, Sam? 2 years? Is there an expiration on Marvis toothpaste? Has anyone used the SWISSCO Natural Bristle Toothbrush (as seen here: http://www.classicshaving.com/catalog/i ... 839593.htm
), or their Badger bristle toothbrush (as seen here: http://www.classicshaving.com/catalog/i ... 839595.htm

I use the Swissco Badger Hair toothbrush every day. It is a nice brush. Granted it does lose some hairs. It is very effective. And a much better costing brush than any of the kents.

I've heard others say the Badger hair toothbrush is too soft to use. You haven't found that to be the case, Peter?
Posted: Tue Apr 05, 2005 12:26 pm
If anything. The badger gets a little stiffer after you use it for a while. GO FIGURE that out!

Sounds like it maybe time for an order for one of those toothbrushes and some Marvis toothpaste is in order!

I got the Swissco badger-hair toothbrush in a coupla days ago, tried it out with Crest Whitening toothpaste (haven't received the Marvis yet) and warm water. All that foam almost made me want to go BAM! Teeth felt cleaner than they have in a while, and so did the gums! I ordered a tube each of Classic Mint, Ginger Mint and Fruit Mint toothpaste. I have a CyberSonic2 toothbrush I'd like to try with these.

Well I got in my 3 tubes of marvis a few days ago. The guy on ebay only shipped them in a bubble mailer so the boxes were all destroyed. Thankfully the tubes weren't damaged. I've only tried the original mint so far but I have to say its definately a winner. My teeth feel very clean and the taste is much different than the standard paste. Doesn't taste chalky at all.
Ace - how long do those swissco brushes last? I know your supposed to replace your standard toothbrush every 3 months. Are they like shaving brushes where they stay good as long as they are kept up?

I got my three tubes a few days ago and I already like the Fruit Mint. I don't know how long the SWISSCO toothbrushes last, but my bet is they will last a lot longer than regular (nylon-bristle?) toothbrushes. I would assume that, as long as you don't use them when you have an illness, they should last indefinitely! Since the bristles are badger hair, I wonder if you should let them set as they are or hang upside-down to dry, hehe? I will say that you use a lot less toothpaste than usual. Just a pea-sized drop is enough to make you "foam at the mouth!" But, like others have said, if you want to get the most from your Marvis, use a top-quality electric toothbrush (like the Oral-B Sonic Complete, which has excellent reviews).

I've been using Marvis with an Oral B for about a month and I am sold on it. Just ordered some more. It is far less sweet than American toothpastes, the mint flavors are intense, and best of all, if you brush your gums as well as your teeth, it leaves that marvelous cool feeling after you rinse. It's available on ebay for $5.00 a tube which is cheap compared to other places.
Here is the email address of the ebay company: firstname.lastname@example.org
. Unfortunately, I don't remember what they call themselves on ebay, but it's something with Italian in it. Be prepared to use PayPal as using a credit card with them is a bit of a hassle. They shipped very promptly, but do not package well. They also send the stuff signature required, which I find very strange.

On ebay, they're called MadeInItaly
, but you can find their ebay store athttp://stores.ebay.com/GIFTALIA_W0QQsspagenameZL2QQtZkm
This last time I had my teeth cleaned, I took in my Badger-hair toothbrush and a tube of Paradise Fruit Mint toothpaste. She said she never heard of either company or product, but that toothbrushes used to be made from either badger-hair or boar-bristles. I mentioned that shaving brushes are made from badger- and boar-hair, but that the better ones are made from badger.

I know this is a old thread but I received my swissco badger and marvis orig. and damn if that was not invigorating. My teeth feel super slick my gums feel....well like gums and my breath is fresh and stayed fresh for quite some time even after a smoke or two. The brush is just the right amount of stifness as well. Some one posted using warm water is this necesary...never heard of using warm water. I cant wait to try the other flavors.

I have found this website selling Marvis and on top has some flavors I have never seen before .
Anybody know if they are real ?

Good question. I just checked Amazon and CO Bigelow's websites, and most of the flavors shown seem to be available. They look very interesting, and even though they cost 2 or 3 times as much as the big name brands most of us seem to use most of the time, I'd love to give it a try.

I used Marvis, for a while. I liked the ingredients list, much, better, than the actual taste. I have since switched to the new (or, at least, newly available) formulation of Tom's, of Maine, Toothpaste.
