Today I’m reviewing the 09 Deodorant Cream from Speak. It came in my February Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]
A gentle, yet effective natural deodorant with a creamy texture that glides on to give you satin-soft protection. An aluminium and baking soda-free formulation that’s great for sensitive skin. Features arrowroot powder, kaolin clay and magnesium as odor neutralizers and excess sweat moppers. A combination of butters and oils keeps the delicate underarm area soft and healthy. Lightly scented with lavender essential oil to keep you smelling fresh.
If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you’ll know that I’ve made the switch to natural deodorant a few years ago, and have had various degrees of success using natural deodorants. Some work amazingly well, some are just ok, and some are not a good match for my body chemistry.
I’ve had better luck using deodorants with baking soda in them as they tend to last longer for me, but because I have sensitive skin, I sometimes react to the baking soda. To reduce the chances of a reaction occurring, I tend to use a baking soda free deodorant on days that I’m working from home to give my skin a break.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that this natural deodorant works really well and it holds up all day! And it keeps my underarms a lot drier than most baking soda free formulas. My only complaint is that it doesn’t smell like lavender to me at all! It doesn’t really smell like anything.
Update March 19th – The Mister has started trying this deodorant out and he said that it works amazing for him even though he finds the cream application to be weird! He has a job where he is moving about (and sweating a lot) and so far, he has not been smelly when he gets home from work!
