Unilever Deodorant Blog Tour – Spreading Tween Confidence

Ok, we all remember when we were going through the strange and funky adolescent into a pre teen change…so y’all  may not, but I do.  I remember having to look at deodorants, training bras and feminine hygiene products, bleh!  I was so embarrassed by just the idea of having to be down any of these aisles in the store.  And I hated more than ever having to talk to my mother about any of it.  image

When Kayla turned 9, I knew that it was time to talk to her about things that she was going to expect from wearing training bras to needing deodorant and such.  She was just not thrilled with the idea and well who can blame her.

I mean for one who wants to know that your going to be stinky when you sweat and that it will happen quicker than you know it and if you don’t wear deodorant that day that your friends may not want to hang out with you.  It’s all so overwhelming.  {geez, girls have it the worst!}

Anyways.  When we got the opportunity to try out a deodorant from Unilever I jumped at the chance…for Kayla of course! : )  After all she is fixing to be 11 and has been wearing deodorant for about a year now. 

We received the Degree Girl deodorant, which btw smells fabulous, Just Dance scent.  Anyways the main reason I chose to participate in this review through Mom Central was Don’t Fret the Sweat campaign.  We all know how important confidence is in our children, but especially tweens and they don’t need to be stinky along the way when trying to build their confidence.  At Don’t Fret the Sweat parents can read ways to talk to their tweens about the stank that comes along with their changing bodies and how they can choose the perfect deodorant for themselves and not stink at all! 

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Unilever and received the items necessary to facilitate my review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.”
