Review: Tom’s of Maine Products

I have been hearing about Tom’s of Maine for years, but had never tried any of their products until recently when I received some complimentary samples in the mail.  I received the following Tom’s of Maine products pictured below.

  • · Long Lasting Deodorant Unscented
  • · Beautiful Earth Long Lasting Deodorant
  • · Naturally Clean Toothbrush
  • · Spearmint Flat Floss
  • · Beauty Bars: Daily Moisture, Relaxing, Sensitive
  • · Gingermint Baking Soda with Propolis & Myrrh  Toothpaste (fluoride free)
  • · Botanically Bright Peppermint Toothpaste (SLS and fluoride free)

Of course the first thing I did before using the Tom’s of Maine products was check into the gluten-free status.  This is the information I found on the website:

GLUTEN

Aside from our liquid hand soap and body wash, which contain wheat protein, all other Tom’s of Maine products are gluten-free. We do not use casein or caseinate, MSG, wheat, oats, barley, rye, malt, spelt, kamut, HPP, or HVP. None of our flavor oils are grain-distilled. We do not use flour of any kind in our manufacturing process for conveyor belts or for any other purpose, and our containers are not dusted with flour before filling.

I quickly fell in love with the scents of the soaps – subtle and not overwhelming in the least.  The deodorant smells great and does last long (as far as the odor protection goes), but I am used to using antiperspirant, so this wouldn’t be something I would use on a regular basis.  The floss is awesome and I keep it in my purse for those emergency floss issues (seeds from fruit/protein bars).  I haven’t tried the toothpaste yet as I just opened a new tube.  I’ll make sure to let you know my thoughts once I do try it.

    I like the toothpaste. Before going GF I had an issue with puking almost daily while brushing, it got better after going GF but more often then I’d like. With Tom’s its a few times a year. My teeth don’t feel as clean but I figure it’s a fair trade off for not puking.

    I don’t like the deodorant, it was like it didnt work – at ALL
