For the past few months I've been testing alternatives to the standard stick of deodorant and since the past few days have been sweltering, I figure, what a great way to share some of these alternative anti-perspirant options. Alternative meaning Aluminum-free, lightly scented and 100% effective against the sweat inducing heat. Add these to my favorite from a few summers ago, lemon.
Clean Original Scent Moisture- Absorbant Deodorant- I tried this one out during the winter ( January through April) to great results. Clean deodorant has no parabens, sulfates or synthetic dyes.The stick lasted 3 months, the scent was light and there was no odor.
Avalon Organics Grapefruit and Geranium Deodorant Spray- I've been using this one off and on with the Clean Deodorant for the past few months. This spray is highly effective as it uses grapefruit and geranium oils to help control oil. The formula takes some time getting used to because with a spray, you never know if you are fully covered with one spritz or three ( I find that two is enough actually). Overall, this is a great deodorant spray that you can use to refresh your body as well!
Kiehls' Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant- Aside from having a fantastic name, this cream based deodorant is great too! I started using this two weeks ago and its amazing. Fragrance-free and a little goes a long way. Even with this 85 degree, 70% humidity start to the week, this cream has not melted or lost smell battle.
