The Botanical Societies Citrus Deodorant


This week I’ve reviewed two other deodorants, so I figured I would throw in one more for good measure.

I bought this deodorant at TJ Maxx as a backup to keep at my office for those days when I forget to put deodorant on before I leave the house.  We’ve all done it at some point in our lives, right? I’ve done it enough times to warrant having a backup on hand.  Because I commute an hour (one way) to work and then have to go straight to community theater rehearsals without going home first, I can’t afford to be without deodorant all day.

Type:  Roll-on

Price:  $4.99 for 1 oz

Scent:  Citrus


Since I hadn’t had the opportunity to use this one yet, I decided to leave it in my tote bag so I could test it out, and I’ve been using it for a week now.  It is not an antiperspirant, but as I said in other posts I don’t want to trap sweat inside my body.

This might be my new favorite!  It’s easy to put on, dries quickly, has a pleasant smell, and it works!  Even when I forgot to put it on one morning before exercising, I didn’t stink that bad.  There was a little smell, but not as much as with some other natural deodorants.  When I used it after shaving, it didn’t hurt, which was surprising since it contains citric acid.  There were a few days where I sweat quite a bit while at work, because it’s pretty hot in our office right now – the heater is way too high for me.  Even on those days I didn’t notice any odor.

Normally I like to check out product safety on the EWG Skin Deep Database, but this company wasn’t found so I checked each ingredient individually.  The highest rating on an ingredient was a 4, which is not bad.  It’s definitely a better rating than most traditional deodorants, and so far it’s been more effective than any other natural deodorant I’ve tried.

      Unfortunately I’ve had the same problem. I’m unsure where else to find their products besides TJ Maxx or Marshalls. Ive tried searching online too with no luck. It’s such a bummer because I really love this deodorant too.
