I am always dubious about the efficacy of certain “all natural” products. Deodorants are one of them. I have tried many, as like most women, my precious underarm’s are super delicate. To date, I get the best results with Dove, Elizabeth Arden cream deodorants (Blue Grass & Green Tea), and Alyssa Ashley Musk cream roll on deodorants. Smell is important as well, and I love the scent of these deos. They are gentle and effective. But I have not given up on gentle and natural.
So when I saw that Lovefresh, a company I know and love for their luxe, natural and effective skincare, had released a natural cream deodorant, I was intrigued. Ok, so a jar? Hm, stick my fingers in and apply it? Weird! Well, actually not weird at all as I do that with a ton of different products all over my face and body every day, so why not on my underarm skin? Duh.
Here is what Lovefresh says, and what is in it:
This all-natural & very effective deodorant will keep you smelling fresh all day long, we promise! By using this wonderful deodorant you will feel comfortable that you are not putting any harsh chemicals under a very *vulnerable* part of your body. It really, really works.
Ingredients: Fair Trade Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Assortment of organic Clays & botanicals and natural organic essential oil. That’s it.
Sounds pretty good, no? And a 2oz jar is $15, and I can already tell this will last me ages. It is rich, soft and easy to apply. It feels like a treat for your skin vs a harsh coating to odour away. I love it! The Moroccan Rose is what I am using, and my daughter has used it, too, and she loves it. Now I want to try the Sweet Orange Patchouli and Lavender Tea Tree!
