My favorite way to unwind is to wander around Target aimlessly without my children in tow. My local store has a coffee shop right as I walk in, so I am able to sip a latte and check out all the pretty new things. Plus of course, pick up our families everyday needs, I am one of those women who runs in for toothpaste and leaves with a cart full of things.
As I wandered around the store earlier this week, I began to think about how my oldest was growing up fast. He was no longer my little baby with a powder fresh scent. He was hitting that age where the car had a lingering odor from baseball practices and track meets. It was time to get the boy some deodorant!
I became a Tom’s of Maine fan while I was pregnant with Anthony and my mother was going through breast cancer. She needed a natural deodorant that was free of aluminum and parabens, but still actually protected against odor, and through trial and error she landed on Tom’s of Maine and has used it ever since. I then followed her example. However I knew my boy and his need for things to look “cool” so I was concerned once I hit the deodorant isle and saw some of the ingredients in other deodorants. Then to my delight right smack in the middle of the male deodorant isle was Tom’s of Maine’s new Made to Matter line of deodorant called Wicked Cool! deodorant for boys. They also have a girl version and these are the 1st natural deodorants made for kids.
The packaging was cool, the “freestyle” scent smelled awesome, and as a mom the best part is that it is a product that I don’t have to worry about my son putting on his skin everyday.
The Made to Matter Wicked Cool! Deodorant is free of aluminum, parabens, artificial fragrances, and provides 24 hour odor protection.
Along with deodorant, I also buy our toothpaste at Target. I always want to try whitening toothpastes, however my teeth are quite sensitive so I stayed away from them. That was until Tom’s of Maine came out with the Made to Matter Luminous White Toothpaste! It is a natural whitening toothpaste that is safe for enamel, plus its gluten and paraben free!
The new Made to Matter collection is only available at Target, which I love because it gives me another reason to shop at my fave place.
With Earth Day just passing, my family is also concentrating on minimizing our global footprint. Using Tom’s of Maine products is part of that plan because they share this goal by striving to maximize recyciability of packaging, have sustainable business practices, and the best thing I’ve learned about this company is they offer an awesome employee volunteering program and corporate giving program.
Head in to Target and check out this awesome new line from Tom’s of Maine, which also includes a great men’s deodorant called North Woods, and make sure to use this cartwheel offer to save!
