Sorry, this review isn’t about anything new or exciting but I’ve been using LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant for a few months now I wanted to share my experience with you. I tried to go natural once before with Primal Pit Paste. That was a disaster, as it gave me a burn that took months to heal. I decided to try one more time and give this cult classic a try for myself.
What it is:
An award-winning, aluminum-free deodorant that is 100 percent natural, safe, and effective.
What it does:
Finally, a natural deodorant that works. Get superior odor protection with this 100 percent natural, freshly scented deodorant. Soothing essential oils blend with beta-glucan technology fight odor effectively while soothing, conditioning, and nourishing the delicate underarm area. It goes on clean, with no sticky wetness, and delivers long-lasting, luxurious results.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
This product is clinically tested, dermatologist-recommended, non-irritating, allergy tested and does not contain aluminum or mineral oils.
First of all, let me say when going “natural” you do need to give your body several weeks to adjust. You will smell terrible and sweat more than usual during this time. This is just your armpits getting out all the aluminum blocking your glands. Once this timeframe is over, you will sweat and smell less. This has been my experience and the experience of several others I’ve spoken to about their journey back to a more natural state. This took about five weeks for me. The problem is if you use regular antiperspirant once, you start over again.
So after I went through the transition phase, LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant works quite well! It doesn’t stop you from sweating at the gym or during any vigorous activity. I notice I sweat less and general wetness isn’t an issue during an average day. Some scents work better for me than others. I find the Pure Vanilla best so far. It smells like vanilla castile soap. It keeps me pretty fresh all day; I don’t need to reapply and doesn’t stain my clothes. It also washes off easily. I don’t shower every day but even day two with a second application is fine for me.
I was surprised LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant controlled wetness and odor as well as it did. I’m glad I tried it. I know natural deodorant might not work for you, but it’s worth a shot!
Product Rating: A
Repurchase: Yes! I’m on my second bottle.
