Help me find a toothpaste that doesn’t sting or slightly burn.

I’m looking for a toothpaste that feels somewhat bland and creamy when used. All too often when I use the toothpastes available there is a slight burning sensation that I assume comes from the chemicals in it. The sensation is not unlike the unpleasantness one initially feels when gargling and swishing with listerine mouthwashes--a kind of stinging that lists for maybe 5-10 seconds and that abates quickly. Is there a toothpaste (not a DIY variety which some have offered as an option) that feels gentle on the mouth without trading off effectiveness and decent cavity protection.

an excellent toothpaste is just a bit too stingy for me. The one I currently use is the Red Optic White
which for some reason doesn’t leave my mouth slightly stinging during the initial ten seconds of brushing. Sensodyne has been fine in the past but it’s a bit more expensive. Also, I have used small quantities of the toothpastes above in an attempt to ameliorate the discomfort of using them. However, this has had a limited effect.
