Over the years my family has been trying hard to use more natural products. We are doing this for ourselves and the planet. My daughter is the recycling guru in our house, and she is always down for cleaning up our community! So I knew they would be on board to make the SWITCH to more natural products. Have you ever read the ingredients that are in your deodorant, toothpaste, and other beauty items you use every day? I finally did and OH MY! My mother told me a long time ago if I can’t pronounce the word don’t eat, drink, or use it! I need to listen to my MOTHER more!
As a mom, I want to protect my FAMILY. I’m the one that buys the household items, so they will have to use what I buy! Now you all know TARGET is my go-to store and I’m always there so of course, I will buy my products at TARGET. Going down the aisles and trying to find NATURAL products I came across Tom’s of Maine® right on the end of the aisle. It looks like they have something for everyone in the family!
Wicked Cool!TM Deodorants, Luminous WhiteTM Toothpaste, and Men’s Naturally Dry North Woods™ Antiperspirant. Free of artificial dyes, fragrances, flavors and preservatives, Tom’s of Maine products are good for the planet and are Made to Matter® – handpicked by Target.
- Luminous White Toothpaste: most advanced natural whitening toothpaste that is safe for enamel, and gluten and paraben free
- Wicked Cool!™ Deodorant: boys and girls: 1st natural deodorants made just for boys and girls, providing 24-hour odor protection and free of aluminum, parabens, and artificial fragrances. Does not provide wetness protection, just odor protection.
- Men’s Naturally Dry North Woods™ Antiperspirant: first natural antiperspirant made for men that provides all day odor and wetness protection without petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, or irritation.
After purchasing Wicked Cool! Deodorants and Luminous White Toothpaste at TARGET we brought them home and replaced our old stuff with all new Tom’s of Maine products. Everyone tried the toothpaste, and that is a GO! My daughter who wants to be a dentist gave it her approval. Also, my son who is super picky (he is 15 and needs to be COOL) says he likes the flavor and how it makes his breath smell clean. He tried to mess with me about kissing girls now since he has fresh breath.
My husband is another story; he is stuck in his ways a bit. He has used the same deodorant for years, and his job has a ban on smelly stuff, so he uses deodorant that has no scent. He is willing to use the Men’s Naturally Dry Antiperspirant in North Woods since it does have no artificial fragrances and we both like the smell. I like how he is willing; I made him read his normal deodorant ingredients, and it shocked him. He has always used a deodorant and not an antiperspirant, so I give him big A+ for giving Tom’s of Maine a chance.
My daughter is 12 and has been using deodorant for over a year, and she is very picky about the smell! We have thrown several away due to how smelly they were, or they didn’t work. When we picked out the Wicked Cool! Deodorant she was excited to try it since it was natural. She loves it! Phew! Not an adamant odor at all and she said she didn’t get a whiff of herself all day, so I guess that means it is working. Target is such an excellent store and to find out they handpicked the Tom’s of Maine Made to Matter Collection and it is only available at Target. They wanted to keep the BEST for themselves. Target loves family and the environment, so Tom’s of Maine fits in with their brand message!
