A friend of mine turned me on to her favorite new product: Malin + Goetz eucalyptus deodorant. It’s all natural, and contains no aluminum, so it won’t give you cancer or stain your clothing. Sadly to say, I care more about the stained clothing in this regard (hello white t-shirt season!) so I was eager to try it out. Verdict is still out on whether it’s the game changer my friend swears it to be, but I’m hoping once I acclimate to the new system, it’ll be full speed ahead! (Beauty regime changes tend to take me a while to come around to.)
I’ve tried a few other natural deodorant products before, such as crystals, salts, even rubbing alcohol! But have yet to find just the right product. After the jump, a quick slideshow of the more often recommended products, and a crowd source request: Have you tried all natural deodorant? Have you had any luck? Let’s discuss!
Aloe-Based Roll On – Almond Scent 1 of 7The almond scent is what's selling me here, as do the rave reviews on Amazon. Have you tried this?
Buy this deodorant at Amazon, $6.
Fairhaven Health Pregnancy Deodorant 2 of 7Target to pregnant women (a time when aluminum usage should be strictly monitored?)
Buy this deodorant at Sears, $8.
Tropical Traditions Aluminum Free Coconut Oil Deodorant 3 of 7Coconut is a winner in my book, though there is also a version for sale boasting FRANKINCENSE. What?
Buy this deodorant at HERE, $8.50.
Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant 4 of 7Smells refreshingly green and doesn't leave a residue. Eucalyptus is a natural antiseptic, to kill off any unwanted odors. Warning: you WILL still sweat.
Buy this deodorant at Malin + Goetz, $20.
Crystal Body Deodorant 5 of 7Crystals! You use this by lightly wetting the top of the crystal before applying to under arms. Also aluminum free, and I was happy with it while I used it. (This one is a travel size, which is sometimes the easiest way to try something new, yeah?)
Buy this deodorant at Amazon, $3.72.
Crystalux Deodorant Liquid 6 of 7A liquid! Intriguing! Is that a spray bottle? There are no reviews attached so you'll have to tell me: any good?
Buy this deodorant at Amazon, $3.
L’Occitane Baux Por Homme 7 of 7Formulated for men, reviewers claim it smells of herbs de Provence and that you might want to consider reapplying after a half day.
Buy this deodorant at Amazon, $16.
