In my quest to switch to all things natural, I’ve been experimenting with different deodorants to see which one holds up best. An “OK” deodorant is fine when you’re sitting at a desk all day, but when you plan on taking vacation that involves the summer heat and lots of walking, you want something better than that. Especially if you sweat like a man… like me.
It’s been a long and smelly road, but I’ve finally found a few natural deodorants that work.
1. Tom’s Lavender Deodorant Stick.
Oh, Tom’s. I wanted to like you. I really did. This deodorant doesn’t work for me at all. Sure, the lavender scent is nice, but after only an hour, I already smell. It’s not pleasant… plus, I don’t want Brandon to divorce me so in the trash it will go.
2. Earth Science Deodorant.
This is better than Tom’s but not by much. Maybe it’s because I sweat more than other women, but Earth Science is a big “meh” for me.
3. Crystal Body Deodorant.
I have mixed feelings about this deodorant. It keeps me dry all day but it’s scentless, so I sort of feel gross. I don’t know… I like deodorant sticks that smell nice. However, I think this would be the perfect stick for women undergoing surgery because you wouldn’t have to worry about irritation!
4. Queen Helene Vitamin E Deodorant Stick.
My younger sister uses this deodorant and I’m hooked. It is easy to apply and smells great — it just doesn’t last as long as I’d hoped. I have to apply it twice a day instead of once, but hey, I don’t stink.
5. Lush Guv’ner Deodorant.
Apparently this deodorant was made for smelly men but I use it and it’s my favorite. I use my hands to brush the powder under my armpits after I shower (this was difficult to get used to at first because I’d spill it everywhere) and it keeps me dry and lasts all day. Plus, the scent is surprisingly nice and I can still wear perfume without feeling like an overpowering department store. And it’s called the Guv’ner which reminds me of the Walking Dead, so that’s cool.
