Unilever Blog Tour

When do you first let your child wear deodorant? When they first ask you at like 2? Do you make them wait until they smell so bad that you are begging them to wear it? Does their teacher come to you and gently/or not so gently recommend it? We occasionally let our kids wear deodorant just for fun once in a while when they were small. They just want to be like us but Kristina is coming up to the age, I think, that she will need to wear it more often!

She has recently started sweating more in general. When shes running around and its warm out and when shes exercising for a long time. She will be 8 in just a few weeks and I think its almost time. I don't want to wait until it becomes an issue for her. I don't want her to go to school and end up with big armpit stains and have the kids making fun of her! The last thing I want is for anything to be harder for her than it has to be!

Recently, Unilever released the Tween Confidence Index, which suggests that tween confidence is short-lived but can be safe-guarded by maintaining strong communication between tweens and parents. With this and more resources available at, Unilever hopes to show parents that they can talk to their tweens about how the right deodorant can keep them free from odor, embarrassment and discomfort along the way.

Kristina and I have a pretty open relationship and I love that she comes to me with pretty much everything and we get talk through it! I love knowing that she comes to me with everything and anything. She has already had some strange questions but I love that she comes to me with them and isn't embarrassed about them at all!

We got to try out some Degree for girls deodorant and she couldn't have been happier when it came. Her very own deodorant that she gets to wear everyday! It opened even more doors for us to talk about when you need to wear it and she proceeded to ask me if she had any hair on her armpits :) Be sure to check out to see how you can talk to your tweens about how the right deodorant can keep them free from odor, embarrassment and discomfort along the way.

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.
