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.
Price: $4.99 for 1 oz
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.
