Don't Fret the Sweat!

It's 5:30 in the evening. I pull up to my 10-year-old daughter's school to collect my precious baby girl after she's enjoyed a long day of learning and playing. As I walk through the gates, she sees me and comes running. I smile and reach out to embrace her. She get closer... My expression changes. My precious baby is sweaty and... well... funky!

Let's face facts- gone are the days of the sweet smell of Johnson's baby lotion emanating from her sweet skin. While she will always be my precious baby girl, she are now a high energy, active tween. She plays hard. She sweats hard. And her body chemistry is changing. So you can bet I was thrilled to learn of the Dove Don't Fret the Sweat program and couldn't wait to join!

The Don't Fret the Sweat program offers all sorts of neat tips, tools, and expert advice for parents and tweens dealing with the very same scenario. One of my favorite features is a the Product Matchmaker which helps you choose a product based on your child's needs and whether they are a boy or a girl, but there are a lot of other great features to explore on the site that help you, as a parent, instill confidence in your tween about their changing body.

Dove also has a line of go fresh deoderant and body mists in Revive (pomegrante & lemon verbenna), Energizing (grapefruit & lemongrass), Burst (nectarine & white ginger) and Cool Essentials (cucumber & green tea). After exploring the Don't Fret the Sweat site together with my daughter, she had fun choosing her own scent, settling on Burst. She felt very grown-up having her own deoderant. I felt good being able to arm her with information and a nice boost of self-esteem.

I received a Dove Don't Fret the Sweat sample pack courtesy of She Speaks & Dove. I was not paid for participation. The opinions expressed are my own.
