I Tried An Organic Deodorant For A Week And Here Are My Thoughts!
If there’s anything that’s a complete turn off besides bad breath and inherent chauvinism, it has to be body odour. That’s a dealbreaker. As a great co-worker, I regularly wear deodorant. After all, you don’t want to violently assault your colleagues’ olfactory senses and knock them unconscious. So, yes, I wear deodorant and I recommend it to most people to keep armpits smelling decent, and more importantly, as a basic courtesy.
Now, we have all heard that deodorants are bad for you, causing your armpits to look dark, staining your clothes, and if you believe practically anything you read, cancer. So when this organic deodorant from Juicy Chemistry landed on my desk for a review, I was excited. Also, this is suppose to smell of lime and mint, so I was willing to give it a whirl. (I’m always willing to masquerade as a mojito.)
This product is a deo stick, and that can be a bit of a hiccup if you are into sharing deos (why, though?). This has to be a personal care product. When you put it on, it actually gives you a cooling sensation, the peppermint really kicking in and doing it’s thing. It settles down quickly though. And the fragrance stick around for a long, long time.
I wore it to the gym and it was the sole reason I could breathe in the sweat-filled room. And it lasted through a pretty intense workout. Not the kind to employ half-measures, I even wore the deodorant to work. This is where I faced the first hiccup. Some of the product transferred to my clothes, and that was a little awkward because people thought I had sweat patches. However, it didn’t stay on the clothes forever, thankfully. I did try and get colleagues to smell my armpits, but all of them rolled their eyes so I am guessing that’s not a great way to test this.
Overall, I am really happy with the product. However, the claims that it will brighten the pits and make them appear smoother might be a tad tall. Buy this when you want to smell amazing but without all the harmful chemicals. We recommend it. And by we, I mean me, because like I said, this would be just be very weird to share.
