Funky Or Fresh? Do Natural Deodorants Actually Work? {Giveaway}

by Nellie

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

I am a constant mover. Not by choice really–it’s just the way I am wired. I am constantly moving whether it’s running races, running to catch my train or simply running to be on time to swimming lessons for the kids.


I had the opportunity to try out a variety of Tom’s of Maine deodorants to see if they could match up to my insane lifestyle because the absolute last thing I want to do is be the stinky post workout girl on the train. Tom’s of Maine is an organic brand that contains no aluminum, artificial fragrances or preservatives and no petrochemicals. Plus it promised 24 hour protection, which would come it really handy for those frequent days that start at 6am and end at 11pm!


The first one I tried was lavender. Since lavender is one of my favorite scents it was a no brainer! I used it for a day and loved it, no stink, even on a 85 degree day full of running around NYC. Tom’s of Maine has clinically proven, 24-hour odor protection using odor-fighting hops and the mineral zinc and only natural fragrances.

SAMSUNG CSCSince your body is likely used to the chemicals in anti perspirants it is recommended that you try out Tom’s Of Maine for a good 3-7 days to figure out if it’s the right choice for you.

Here are some of the scents from the new line:

  • Long Lasting Unscented
  • Long Lasting Lavender
  • Long Lasting Powder
  • Long Lasting Tea Tree
  • Long Lasting Apricot
  • Long Lasting Lemongrass

It was easy to make the switch to Tom’s of Maine because I have really tried to be more conscious of what I am putting on (and inside!) my body. Tom’s of Maine is not only natural but it’s organic too. I am more than happy to switch to a deodorant that is not only natural but can hold up under the insane sweaty activities of my life. There is a reason why Tom’s of Maine is the leading bestseller of natural deodorants!

Love Tom’s of Maine, too and actually switched last summer when I got samples at Blogher. So definitely just couldn’t agree with you more 😉

Hm… never tried them but we use their dental care products so I already trust the brand. I would think it would work well for me. I don’t sweat, though, (weird!) so I’m not the best judge of it. I’d just like it!

I have high body odor so I have to get something that works. so far the only thing that works for me is Mitchum. I haven’t ventured into anything else but I have heard Toms is good

I’ve never tried Tom’s deodorant, though I should stay away from aluminum-based deodorants for medical reasons, so I just may need to give it a try!

Vinegar, yes, Vinegar is my goto for summer months & post gym workout when I’m not going straight home. You will smell of pickles for the 1st minute, but I it will fade quickly. I promise you, a swab of vinegar on a cotton ball WORKS WONDERS
