I think this is a first for my blog, I don't think I've ever reviewed a deodorant before...duh duh duh....so, I had been hankering after this ever since I saw it in one of Essie Button's vlogs a year or so ago so I added it to a shopping list for my sister the last time she went to America. It's the Lavanila Healthy Deodorant, the healthy element is because it doesn't contain Aliminium which is found in most deodorants these days and overusing it can cause it to build up in the body, I don't know too much about this so I won't talk about it here but there's plenty on google if you want to know more. This is a creamy stick, it smells AMAZING, I have the Pure Vanilla scent but they also have Vanilla Grapefruit, Vanilla Lavendar and Vanilla Lemon, it's quite a creamy vanilla scent, and smells very natural, I'm not a fan of synthetic vanilla scents but this doesn't fall into that category at all, it's very vanilla pod-esque if you get me?! It's incredibly hydrating and actually leaves the under arm feeling really moisturised which I really loved and wasn't expecting so if you do suffer from irritated or dry patches in that area, then I'd recommend this, if you are in America or have a Sephora order planned because as far as I'm aware, this isn't available in the UK yet.
One con for me with this one, is I don't think that it would withstand lots of activity or a long, stressful day, it's not an anti-perspirant so there is room for wetness (I'm cringing even writing that) so it will either need to be re-applied or you may need to apply alongside another deodorant if you know you'll need some extra protection, I found it was great with my normal daily duties but there was a day where I had to head off at 5am for work, spend 4 hours on a hot, squashed train and also spend 6 hours in a stuffy meeting room and by the end of it, I was wishing I'd worn my Mitchum but I don't want that to deter people because it really is a lovely product.
So, there you go a whole post without using the word pit which is the most horrific word after moist. I did however use wetness so I apologise for that!
Have you tried this? What do you think of it? Is there anything similar in the UK?
