Has anyone used the DR Harris toothpaste?

Would you care to share your opinion of it?

I've used the Harris a couple of times now and I like it. The spearamint is not real strong but quite pleasant. It also seems to get my teeth cleaner than the Marvis pastes I've been using lately. The only complaint I have is that there was another seal under the foil which I didn't see and I think you're supposed to pierce it with the cap. Missing that resulted in the loss of several applications of the product.

I'll have to give this a try. But first, is there anything about it other than brand name that justifies the price?

Well obviously it's not three times as good as commonly available drugstore brands. But I do find the product performance comparable to similarly priced toothpastes I have tried. I look at it as an affordable luxury good. There's really nothing about Acqua Di Parma that "justifies the price" but many people gladly purchase and enjoy it anyway.

I know DR Harris is an English company so I assume their toothpaste is made in the UK.

I was surprised to see that it is made in India.

Might seem like an odd question... What material is the tube made of??

A brief review of DR Harris Spearmint Toothpaste...

It's no secret that I am a HUGE fan of Marvis toothpaste
but recently I've developed great fondness for DR Harris products
so I was most keen to try the DR Harris toothpaste.

It is only available in one flavour: Spearmint.
Straight from the tube it has an extremely light green colouring.
The scent is fresh, but not overpowering.
It smells like... Spearmint!

The taste is subtle, yet effective and freshening.
It reminds me of toothpastes that contain baking soda.
It foams quickly in the mouth
and more abundantly than I'm used to with Marvis.
(And this would be my only criticism).

The result is a very fresh feel.
But not a bighting hit.
This paste delivers freshness gently and subtly.
Almost incongruently.

It presents as a very honest product.
Not over flavoured.
Not intensely coloured.
Not filled with pointless ingredients.

It performs admirably and I happily recommend it.

Will it replace my Marvis...
No, I'm too fond of the stronger more exciting flavours on offer.
But if a subtle yet entirely effective clean is to your tastes
DR Harris Spearmint toothpaste is sure to please!
Biggrin

Ben... I had asked above... What material is the tube made of? Plastic? Alu?

Plastic I think, with a foil lid that requires piercing with the point of the inverted cap.

I have just about finished my first tube of DR Harris toothpaste which goes well with DR Harris bone brush : P. I enjoyed it, but the brush was really the fantastic item. The toothpaste was probably on par with Marvis in ingredients, but I feel Marvis has a better grasp of flavors and mouthfeel. I will probably not buy again, though I am not disappointed I took the plunge.

After reading this thread, of course I had to order some. This is why I stayed away for so long.
