I shall go from left to right.
Purely Great Women's Cream Deodorant in Lavender
This deodorant I found during a search for more natural solutions. And Purely Great is a Canadian company! I emailed them and they sent me this sample. And I'm really glad they did! The cream has to be mixed a little before application, using a popsicle stick or similar. It starts to thin a little once you get it going. Using the stick or your fingers, take a dime sized dollop and spread on your under arm area. It melts with your body temperature and absorbs in seconds. This lasted all day for me. Like 8-10 hours all day for me. I was dry as a bone and smelled of lovely lavender. The formula was thick and I think that it helped last longer. This is definitely my favourite out of the bunch.
Crawford Street Skincare Lemon Deodorant Cream
You may remember I received this in the April Seasonsbox. Crawford Street Skin Care is a Toronto-based company. This creme is a lot thinner. It has a really fluffy texture. You don't need a whole lot, just a dime sized dollop. Your body temperature helps melt and absorb it into your skin. The lemon smell is also fresh, kinda like a tart lemonade. I found this one to only have about 6-8 hours of lasting coverage. The smell also becomes more subtle as the day goes on. I definitely do like this one as well but I don't think I'd wear it if I was going to do some heavy sweating or be out all day.
Margarita Bloom's Untamed Dame Lemon Pound Cake Deodorant
Margarita Bloom is a beauty & bath company which is vegan, cruelty free, and has some bombshell vintage beauties! (Sometimes, I like to go to the website and look at all the pictures of queens and fair ladies and pinups. Gorgeous!) Lemon seems to be a popular scent! This definitely smells like its namesake. Lemon and sugar and cake, yum! It comes in a stick form so all you have to do is glide it on. Really handy if you are in a pinch for time. I love the scent of this one a lot, but like the Crawford Street deodorant, I found it did not last as long. I got about 6-8 hours of coverage before I could feel my sweat glands restarting. I still use this baby though!
Botanical Therapeutic Liquid Crystal Deodorant
Botanical Therapeutic is one of the collections available from Carina Organics, a BC based company. I like the quickness and convenience of sprays but had never had much luck with them. So i jumped at the chance to review this one! You spray your under arms about 4-6 times each and then let it dry. Or if impatient like me, rub a little to help the absorption process. It then forms a layer of protection from odor causing bacteria for 24 hours. I read the ingredients and the only things in it are purified water and natural mineral salts. I wouldn't say I was sweat-free for 24 hours. It was really more like 10-12. The spray is unscented and as such, so were my pits! No smell is better then bad smell any day is how I look at it. So I do like this one for the rushed mornings or the quick touch ups.
So Lovelies, let's fight the funky smells with these new weapons I have discovered!
