If you’ve read my other posts then you know that I refuse to use any product that contains toxic chemicals. Deodorant is no exception. I also love to shop, especially at discount stores.
This was another TJ Maxx find I bought because I was getting low on the Botanical Societies Citrus deodorant I had bought there previously (and loved). I like to have one that I keep in my purse for BO emergencies, so I decided to go ahead and buy this one. This company appears to be out of England, because the prices on their website are in pounds. The About section doesn’t say where they’re from, and they don’t have a “where to buy” link or anything of that nature.
The smell is kind of like a wild rose. You can definitely smell the rose, but you can also smell the other scents, which include Rose Geranium, Lemon & Grapefruit. It’s a roll on, but dries fairly quickly.
Unfortunately, it didn’t prevent me from stinking. I applied it before several workouts and I smelled terrible after each one. Since that didn’t seem to work, I tried it after a shower when I knew I wouldn’t sweat and on multiple occasions. That was even worse! I basically had rose-scented BO. Luckily it wasn’t so overpowering that others could smell it, but I definitely got a whiff every now and then and it wasn’t pleasant. It’s a shame because I really wanted to love this deodorant.
To be fair to this product, I am one of those people that have a hard time with natural deodorants. Many of them make me smell worse than if I hadn’t put anything on at all. If you’re not prone to body odor, this will probably work just fine for you. If you’re like me and tend to get stinky when you sweat, I wouldn’t recommend this deodorant. I’m sure this company is perfectly fine (they sell other products), but this specific product just didn’t work for me.
Hopefully you found this helpful. Thanks for reading!
