Busy Mommy Purse Essentials

Busy Mommy Purse Essentials

I’m always on the lookout for natural products that work well. Personally I haven’t purchased deodorant containing aluminum for years in an effort to limit my family’s exposure to aluminum. While I’m sure there’s a wide range of opinions about long term exposure to aluminum, I figure better safe than sorry. It can be hard to find deodorant with natural odor protection that actually works; of course no one wants to smell. I’m excited to share with you a wonderful brand of deodorant that not only gets the job done but has all the properties that I look for in natural odor protection. It also comes in a wide variety of fragrances, something for everyone!

Naturally stay fresh with Tom's of Maine deodorant - Mommy Scene

Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting Deodorant is formulated using natural ingredients and does not contain aluminum, animal products, artificial colors, fragrances or preservatives. This deodorant dries using natural ingredients that effectively minimize perspiration. Tom’s of Maine discloses every ingredient in their deodorants, including where each ingredient is sourced.

This post was developed in partnership with Tom’s of Maine. All opinions are my own.

Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting Deodorant Ingredients

Propylene Glycol (vegetable derived) – Consistency
Water – Consistency
Sodium Stearate from coconut and palm oils – Consistency
Organic Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice – Soothing feel
Glyceryl Laurate from vegetable oils – Deodorancy
Humulus Lupulus (hops) [CO2] extract – Deodorancy
Organic Cymbopogon Flexuosus oil from lemongrass – Deodorancy

Helianthus Annuus (sunflower) seed oil – Moisturizer
Ascorbic Acid from citrus fruits – Antioxidant

I appreciate the naturally drying ingredients that don’t leave my skin feeling “burned” or rough especially in the winter. Aluminum can be especially drying and I often have to moisturize my armpits in the cold weather months. Tom’s of Maine natural odor protection moisturizes my skin as well as deodorizing. I also don’t have to reapply this deodorant throughout the day to feel fresh. Tom’s of Maine deodorant’s long lasting odor protection lasts up to 24 hours!

Long Lasting Deodorant Highlights

This Long Lasting Deodorant doesn’t contain aluminum and comes in fragrances such as wild lavender, tea tree, fresh apricot, and lemongrass. It contains naturally drying ingredients as well as a moisturizer and natural fragrances.

Tom’s of Maine Fresh Apricot Deodorant is my favorite. It smells wonderfully sweet and it goes on softly, moisturizing as it freshens. It’s infused with natural fragrance and organic oils.

Long lasting Unscented Deodorant is a good option if you are sensitive to any fragrance. It literally has no smell, other than the tiniest hint of aloe. Tom’s of Maine unscented deodorant is like wearing deodorant without wearing deodorant, no fragrance.

Refreshing Lemongrass is also a personal favorite, it smells fresh and sunny without any sharp or sour undertones. Wild Lavender smells just like lavender, also moisturizing, naturally scented, and infused with Organic plant-derived oils.

Tom's of Maine natural long lasting deodorant is a purse essential - Mommy Scene

Overall, I love Tom’s of Maine deodorant with natural odor protection and it’s definitely a purse essential to put in my Coco & Kiwi Sydney Diaper Bag, when I’m out running around with the kids. Although if you apply this long lasting deodorant in the morning, you likely won’t need to reapply! I have lots of fun chasing my three kiddos around during the day, and my little guy is just starting to stand and take supported steps. I don’t want to be worried about how I smell as I play with my kids and I’m careful with which chemicals I allow in the products that I use. Tom’s of Maine deodorant offers a great combination of dryness, freshness, and moisturizing in a way that’s naturally derived and beneficial for my family. Tom’s of Maine also makes deodorant for men and kids, as well as a wide range of other natural hygiene products.
