Raise your hand if you DON’T wear anti-perspirant! Or maybe don’t raise your hand…depending on what you are using instead. I ditched odor-blocking products that were full of questionable chemicals a few years ago and made the switch over to deodorant, and more specifically, to products that had more natural ingredients.
I have tried MANY different brands, and in more cases than not, the products simply don’t last all day, and if I don’t do a re-application halfway through the day, I don’t exactly smell awesome by the time I’m climbing into bed for the night. And feeling a little bit stinky is not really on my list of things I want to do daily, or really ever. As a result, if I’m ever going to be away from home for the entire day, I will resort to the product I keep on hand for such emergencies: an anti-perspirant that has a whole lot of stuff in it that I don’t want to wear. But on occasion, I feel left with no other choice!
And that’s why I might have done a little dance in the personal care aisle of Whole Foods yesterday. There were fireworks going off in my heart, y’all.
Tom’s of Maine has a product called Long Lasting Deodorant. It’s got some serious odor fighting ingredients that can help folks like me make it through 24 hours without the need to reapply! All this from a brand that is PROUD of what they put into their products. Want to see what you’ll find in this deodorant (and why it’s there)? Check this out!
I’m so thrilled that Tom’s of Maine has found the perfect cocktail of natural ingredients that will get you through 24 hours without a hitch. I’m so thrilled, in fact, that I might have hopped on Polyvore after getting my new deodorant and planned an entire outfit inspired by the product.
I’m totally living in cuffed jeans this summer (if you haven’t tried the look yet, you’ll be surprised by how big of a difference showing just a bit of your leg can make in how warm you feel!). And I personally love cowl neck shirts (I think they are flattering to most body types). I love the sleeveless look here, and thanks to Tom’s of Maine, I’m feeling just fine about going sleeveless all day long. I’m ready to go run my errands, meet friends for coffee, or even do the highly glamorous stuff all adults know and love: household chores. Working up a sweat is NO PROBLEM now! Tom’s of Maine has it under control.
One other thing you may not know about me is that I’m a recovering perfume junkie. Before I had kids, I would spend a fair chunk of my disposable income on beautiful scents to wear. At the height of it all, I had 57 bottles of perfume (!!!). I’ve whittled my collection down to 13, and every scent I have smells AMAZING. I don’t like for my perfume to compete with other products, so I tend to avoid deodorants and lotions that contain perfumes. While Tom’s of Maine does offer some naturally scented deodorizing products, I opted for the unscented version so that my perfume can shine. Nobody puts my Petite Cherie in the corner, friends.
So now you know the look I’m rockin’ most days this summer, and the deodorant I’m absolutely loving. No more having to choose between natural ingredients and all-day protection! Have you been afraid to ditch your anti-perspirant due to a lack of truly reliable alternatives with natural ingredients? If so, I want to encourage you to give the Long Lasting Deodorant from Tom’s of Maine a try. I’m so glad I did! My “for emergencies only” anti-perspirant is now in the trash. 🙂
