The verdict is in on these natural deodorants! And while I won’t be switching to them full-time, one of the products has potential.
As I’ve mentioned before, I am always looking to incorporate natural skincare and beauty products into my regimen. I’ve sampled many natural deodorants, but none have ever been as effective as my anti-perspirant. So when my mom kindly bought these two deodorants for me to try, I was skeptical.
The Crystal Body Deodorant Stick, which is hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and paraben-free is just that — a crystal that you wet and roll on under your arms. I have to say, I didn’t notice much of anything when I first used this product. My underarms felt wet — and not in a good way. I soon determined that this was not a product for me.
But all is not lost when it comes to natural deodorant products. The mineral deodorant body spray met with better results. It also contained no aluminum chlorohydrate and was hypoallergenic and paraben-free. Its lavender and white tea fragrance was soft and refreshing, and gave the feeling you would expect from a light deodorant spray.
Overall, the jury is still out on using these products daily (you’re better than I am if you can make that kind of commitment), in the dead of summer, or during a workout. But if you are looking to go the natural route, and don’t mind a product that needs to be reapplied, then the mineral deodorant body spray is worth a try.
