    Freshening Breath

    Whenever you chew toothpaste to freshen your mouth, it is the mint flavour that leaves your breath feeling clean and refreshed. The effects of gum however aren’t that long-lasting and can even leave you feeling bloated.

    Instead, why not brush your teeth mid day to freshen your breath and actually banish the bacteria your mouth? We love the Marvis Toothpaste range as it freshens our breath while protecting our teeth. The Aquatic Mint is our favourite for summer, and coupled with the Foreo ISSA Toothbrush in Mint, our dental regimes never looked so good.
