A Giveaway from Tom’s of Maine

While I’m pretty flexible about what brands I buy and use for most household products, there are some items that I am naturally drawn to. Tom’s of Maine products are among those that I like for a number of reasons. Their deodorant is one of the I’ve found not to have aluminum, their toothpaste doesn’t make me gag, and I know that their practice good stewardship in their production.

I always had terrible gagging issues during pregnancy. Most toothpastes made me feel ill. Except Tom’s. It’s a top choice in my book simply due to taste.

Tom’s of Maine just released a new tooth paste: Simply White. Like the others in the line, it tastes great and, additionally, uses naturally sourced silica to help whiten. Hubs and I have both been using it recently. He, who normally doesn’t have a toothpaste preference said, “I really like that stuff.” Four thumbs up here!

The kids have been testing out the Silly Strawberry Toothpaste. My 8-year old commented that the flavor isn’t super strong. I think this is a good thing, personally. He seemed to think that it should be just like eating strawberries. Kids these days!

Another new addition to my morning routine is Tom’s Natural Beauty Bar. Without synthetic ingredients and full of vitamin E and olive oil, they can be considered wholesome. I like how my face feels after washing up.

This week three LifeasMOM readers will win gifts from Tom’s of Maine: a sample of Simply White toothpaste, 2 beauty bars and a sample of Silly Strawberry toothpaste.

    Toms of Maine used to be my favorite in the 80′s. I worked at a food co-op that serviced the vegetarian crowd[including me!.] I stopped using them about 15 yrs ago and cannot remember why.

    I wish I wod have tried Tom’s toothpaste when I was pregnant! I gagged with all the brands I did try. I ended up just using neem powder to brush. It was good enough at the time, but now I know what to try next time!

  181. I’ve been wanting to try Tom’s of Maine for quite some time. I have heard only good things about it :).

  182. I would like to enter the Tom’s giveaway. Our 6 year old is the only kid I know who loves to use anise flavored toothpaste by Tom’s of Maine! As a result of starting her out on it, she thinks the “kids” sugar laden one at grandma’s tastes yucky :)

  183. Jennifer B. says:

    I’ve never tried a Tom’s product but have heard about them for years. Thanks for the opportunity to win!!
