Pleasant Pits Unscented Natural Deodorant Review & Giveaway

Pleasant Pits Unscented Natural Deodorant

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

When Kimia, the owner of Pleasant Pits, reached out via InstaGram, she asked me if I would like to try their Unscented Natural Deodorant and since I only use natural deodorants, of course I said yes! Pleasant Pits is an Ontario based company. [info in italics taken from the Pleasant Pits website]

Pleasant Pits Unscented Natural Deodorant

In the past few years, we have become increasingly conscious about our health and the environment. And we’re constantly looking for alternatives to products that are scientifically proven to harm our bodies and/or the planet; especially, those which are used everyday, like soap, toothpaste, and deodorant.

Much to our surprise, we realized that there is no natural deodorant available in Canada that checks all the boxes, yet delivers a smooth and delightful texture. So we decided to make one, and we believe we’ve nailed it.

Our goal is to deliver quality products that allow for a healthy & sustainable lifestyle. And we’re already working on products beyond deodorants.

Pleasant Pits Unscented Natural Deodorant

Let’s take a look at the Unscented Natural Deodorant:

A long-lasting odor protection deodorant that checks all the boxes:

 Aluminium-free
 Paraben-free
 Plastic-free
 Cruelty-free (vegan)
 Baking soda-free
 Fragrance-free

Ingredients: Organic coconut MCT oil, Arrowroot powder, Magnesium hydroxide, Mango butter, Candelilla wax, Organic coconut oil, Diatomaceous earth, Cetyl alcohol, Avocado oil

Pleasant Pits Unscented Natural Deodorant

As always, both myself and the Mister have tested out this baking-soda free natural deodorant – just to see how it works for two different body chemistries. I have to say that this is the smoothest natural deodorant, it applies so easily with no dragging or tugging. It feels moisturizing on the skin. I also love the plastic free packaging, it is sturdy and easy to use – just push up the deodorant from the bottom!

This baking soda free formula actually works! Really well! It doesn’t crap out on me, even after my sweaty cardio workout! Even the Mister found that it kept him from stinking during the recent heat wave that we are having here in Montreal. So far it is the longest wearing and most effective baking soda free natural deodorant that I’ve ever used!

Pleasant Pits gifted me three deodorants to give away to my readers, so here’s my rules: 1. Must be subscribed to my blog (I will check), 2. Must be Canadian (sorry international readers, I will do a giveaway for you another time), and 3. Please comment with what province you live in. The giveaway will close on midnight EST, on July 7th, and I will select three winners via random number generator, and announce it on the 8th.

Prezzies in the Mail!

Recently I found out that I had won Rachael’s giveaway (otherwise known as Helpless Whilst Drying) via twitter (she’s @helplessdrying on Twitter) – It arrived yesterday!

Helpless Whilst Drying

Needless to say, I was super excited because I’ve never tried anything from Soap & Glory as it is almost impossible to find here in Montreal, and they seem to only have a few bits of the line – mostly the bath and body stuff).

It arrived yesterday! It is a cute little box set from Soap & Glory shaped like a house! It was wee bit squished as my mail carrier crammed the package into my mailbox, but that’s typical delivery behaviour…

 

So whats in the Beauty-Full House? Let’s take a closer look:

Helpless Whilst Drying

Inside are three products –

The Thick & Fast HD Mascara (Lengthening & Volumizing with Collagen) *description in italics taken from the Soap & Glory UK website*

Helpless Whilst Drying

The BRUSH is the stuff – Soap & Glory’s 7-SIDED FAN FLARE-180™ brush with a V-groove to lay down volume & intensity, and a network of combing & curling surfaces to give length, definition and DRAMA. Featuring strength-building COLLAGEN* PRE-PEPTIDES, LONG-STRETCH POLYMERS that wrap lashes in a flexible, lengthening film and NO FLAKE 24 all-day wear technology, prepare yourself for TOTAL LASH LIFT-OFF!
The Glow All Out Cheek Stick (Highlighter)
Helpless Whilst Drying

Girls, our GLOW ALL OUT™ CHEEK STICK will give you an instant pop of champagne glow to sigh for. With Illuminating Radiance-Pearls™ your skin will receive a wonderful, sheer, luminous finish. And ‘wow-look-at-her’ double takes. In the coolly stunning shade, ICE SHIMMER.

And a Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss in the limited edition shade Plumble.

Helpless Whilst Drying

Fasten your seatbelts! Soap & Glory’s world-famous SEXY MOTHER PUCKER™ Lip Plumping Gloss just got sexier. Amazing. Addictive. And definitely something to shout a-pout, it features the same ingenious lip-plumping technology as the original. With SUPERFILL™ Lip Plumping Spheres, which explode in volume when they meet the moisture on your lips. (They’re like tiny, dehydrated sponges that expand when they get wet.) Plus LIPSWELL™ Natural Plant Oil Infusion – an incredible microcirculation-boosting extract that makes your lips feel instantly fuller. Plus, with a new super-smooth formula, it glides on… so your lips feel soft and look ravishing. It’s set to send you (and lips) a-buzzing!

So excited to try this stuff out over the holidays! Review to follow once I’ve had a chance to test everything out! Thanks again Rachel! xoxo

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

I probably won’t be posting again until after Boxing Day (December 26th), with my picks for the Best of 2016.

Disclosure: This was a giveaway prize that I won in case you missed that at the beginning. I’m under no obligation to review these things, but I will, because I choose to.
