The weather is finally start to feel like spring which makes me happy. The change in weather also means I have to be extra diligent about reapply my deodorant . I use natural deodorant which I love, I don’t have to worry about any harsh chemicals that could be carcinogenic (linked to cancer). The down side of using a more natural product is the need to reapply during the day, so you won’t smell like raw stinky onions. As the weather heats up I keep deodorant in my purse and at work in my desk; if I shower the night before I put it on and then reapply in the morning which normally keeps me fresh all day. If I workout in the evening I will probably be a little smelly by the end of my work out (I have worn it all day) but if freshly applied before my work out I’m good (usually).
My favorite brand is LAVANILA LABORATORIES in the scent vanilla coconut I love it; but it is not cheap at $14. The consistency is very dry and powdery, it feels good on my skin and doesn’t leave that weird residue behind like traditional deodorant. I buy it from their site http://lavanilalaboratories.com and stock up when it is on sale; I also buy it from sephora http://www.sephora.com .
I recently tried NUBIAN heritage, the Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver scent sold at Ulta http://www.ulta.com . I liked it but didn’t love it. The consistency is very soft and left me super wet, it takes forever to dry and over time it darkened my arm pits (not cute). I also went through the tube much quicker than my usual brand. I don’t have to reapply it during the day, it smells great and the best part is the cost about $7. There are maybe 4 other scents in the line, I may try the other scents to test…but I like my LAVANILA so much more.
Do you use natural deodorant? Which is your favorite? Do you have to reapply? What other natural products/brands do you use?
