I have been using this deodorant for about 5 month now and I’ve been really loving it. It is a simple white solid deodorant, which is made without any parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals, and phthalates.
Inside looks like below:
So the package says that its 100% “healthy” with all natural ingredient, but I have to tell you it’s not organic. I feel like many people are mislead to think all “natural” products are “organic”. It is not true! But anyways, this product does not contain any harsh chemical, which is awesome. Deodorants with aluminum works really well and pretty much stop me from sweating but I’d rather use something more natural. This product has been really effective on stopping me from sweating and not causing any irritation. I am not a huge fan of the strong scent but I think it’s bearable. The one I use is called Pure Vanilla, but I don’t think it smells anything like vanilla. Other scents are even stronger so I picked this one. It’s kind of sad because their perfumes smell so nice.
- Natural, no harsh chemical
- Works really well as deodorant
- A lot of product in the container
- Cute packaging
- Strong scent that not everyone enjoy (doesn’t stay though)
- Very expensive dor a deodorant (CA$20 or up)
- Not available in many places (Beauty Mark / Sephora)
My final rating: 4/5
