I feel like I have a ridiculous amount of deodorants to try, I’m not sure if people are trying to tell me that I smell but I am glad for the opportunity to try different types of deodorants which are less harmful than my regular antiperspirant.
This product is 100% natural, certified vegan and cruelty free. It’s free from aluminium chlorohydrate, alcohol, parabens and triclosan. It’s supposed to provide long lasting protection and leave no white marks. This is the brands’ first scented product, with a fusion of over 15 natural extracts and oils, however it’s marketed as being scented with lavender and vanilla. The way this deodorant works is that it contains mineral salts which inhibit the growth of body odour causing bacteria. The application is a spray nozzle and I’ve never used a deodorant of this form before.
I find it slightly uncomfortable to spray a liquid on my underarms because this product takes a while to dry, so it’s not great if you’re in a rush and have to leave with wet underarms. It dries to a barely noticeable layer which isn’t uncomfortable to wear. The scent is beautiful, sweet and floral with a hint of citrus, although the scent does wear off throughout the day it is a boost to spray it in the morning to start the day. I haven’t noticed any white marks on my clothing but I wouldn’t say that it completely stops odours. I work in full clothes with a heavy lab coat over the top for at least 8 hours a day and at the end of the day I find that the lovely scent of this product hasn’t lasted and that I smell a little body odour and that’s a bit disappointing for me. However, I will keep using it for a bit because maybe it needs a little time for my body to adjust to it. You can buy the deodorant for around £6 online if you fancy giving a natural deodorant a go.
