Well... here's something I never thought I would try -- Natural deodorant. I've always had some concerns about this sort of product, although I love natural products! But I've always wondered it it would actually work! If there's something that I hate is that smell of perspiration that we all get sometimes. But the last time I went to Lush, the sales girl encouraged me to give it a try and I bought a little piece of the Aromaco Deodorizing Bar. It almost looks like a soap, but it's in fact a deodorant that you rub on your armpits much like you would with a roll-on thingy. The bar itself, has a strange smell -- I think it's the patchouli oil! -- that I'm not very kin on, but it doesn't really leave any smell on me, when I apply it. The bar is made of wax, and it doesn't really feel like a traditional deodorant. As I said, you rub it on the same way, but rather than it transferring a cream-like product to your skin, it kinda coats it with a sheer layer of oils.
Surprisingly, I'm really enjoying this product. It holds up to all my daily activities and not once did I ever felt or smelled bad. In fact, I felt that it holds up as good as any commercial deodorant I've used in the past. And one huge advantage is this doesn't really transfer to my cloths. Usually I get some deodorant stains on my shirts, just because I'm always in a hurry and I'm all clumsy and I touch with my roll-on on my shirt, and bam, there is a stain. Yeah, with this, that doesn't really happen.
However, the lack of smell feels kinda of weird to me. I like products that have a clean, fresh smells. And the weird smell of this bar doesn't really help. I'm not sure I'm going to buy this again. For now, I'll finish this one, because I don't like to be wasteful, but at the end I think I'll go back to my favorite regular roll-on deodorant.
