I thought a lot about if I should share this with you as it is not exactly 100% related to sweet and healthy food but I felt it was time for a product recommendation since this one has solved a problem that has been a pain for me for years – finding the right deo.
A deo that does not contain aluminum or any harmful ingredients, is possibly vegan and most importantly: a deodorant that really does the job.
Some deo’s I have tried include:
Crystal salt deodorant stick: this deo is literally as hard as a stone. You wet it with water and apply it to your armpits. The deo is fairly expensive but lasts for an incredibly long time. I do understand the concept behind this deo – the salt prevents the growth of bacteria, and thus controls odor – but unfortunately it has never worked for me. In fact, I threw it out because it made no difference if I was using it or not. I was still sweating and it would not prevent me from smelling.
Usual deo without aluminum: Some of those actually worked fine. For the first 2 weeks at least. Then for some reason my body seemed to get used to them and it became a very smelly affair. Your clothes smell weird too. Not a big fan.
Teatree oil deo: I bought this in a pharmacy feeling very confident that all things from a pharmacy would work. It looked like a pretty ordinary roll on deodorant – but with tea tree oil as a sweat fighting agent. The smell is quite intense and it works the same way as the crystal salt stick. To be honest the smell was really overwhelming but again it did not work for me at all.
The solution – Wolkenseifen Cream Deo: But rather than keep telling you what not to take I would like to tell what has really worked for me. It has not only worked for me but also for my family and even my brother uses it. It is a natural deo so no nasty ingredients, it is vegan, and contains no preservatives. It is a deo cream made by Wolkenseifen but I hear there are other companies out there producing similar products. You take a little bit with your fingertip and apply it to your armpits – similarly to applying cream to your face. It will look a little whitish first but it will absorb into your skin fairly quickly. The deo has a very light smell plus their product line features one deo cream for extra sensitive skin too. Hands down, this is the only deo that works! I honestly cannot recommend this more.
One container lasts for 6 months or more depending on how much you use. For me it almost lasted a year so it even saves you some bucks. I know it is hard to believe that an all natural product has such an amazing effect. It is based on sodium bicarbonate or baking soda if you like. Sometimes it can be that easy.
