The idea of chemical free deodorant intrigued me and made me nervous at the same time. Deodorants generally sold in stores have chemicals that have been linked to breast cancer and alzheimer's. I desperately want to be completely chemical free, but deodorant is serious business! I have recently rejoined the workforce, you know, outside of my home. I have been putting off even trying the natural deodorant because I'm afraid of stinking. When I got the chance to test and review the Bella Organics Vanilla Mint Deodorant Creme I took it! Since we have been having more chilly days than warm ones recently it made me feel a bit more confident to try it.
I received a small jar of the Deodorant Creme, it smells great! The package also came with a little informative instruction sheet. I learned a lot from that sheet of paper. For example, it is recommended that you exfoliate your arm pits! Why? Well, apparently your pits go through a detoxing period which is helped along by the exfoliating. The detoxing process is said to take anywhere from 4-15 days. I used a salt scrub for my exfoliating, but you can use a loofa or dry brush.
I don't particularly like putting deodorant on with my fingers, but it wasn't greasy and came off easily after application. In my opinion the Bella Organics Natural Deodorant works well. I didn't think I smelled bad at all and I kept sniffing myself (I'm not ashamed.) They offer other scents as well as the Vanilla Mint. If you are new to chemical free deodorant, or have been using it, I would recommend giving this brand a try! Plus you have the chance to win one now! Enter the giveaway below!
