Time for a bit of an overshare: I don’t like natural deodorants. They just don’t seem to work well enough for me to wear them in my daily life. I don’t sweat excessively, but I’m paranoid enough to prefer a full-on non-natural antiperspirant. In fact, regarding those women who use botox injections to prevent armpit sweat – I am sometimes tempted by this…
Anyway, I still like using natural deodorants at night. I shower at night and then I’ll usually put on a natural deodorant for the evening/overnight (and then use my real one in the morning!). Recently, I tried the Crystal Essence Mineral Deodorant in Vanilla Jasmine. This product can be purchased online and in select drugstores for about $5.
Like most natural deodorants, this one smells nice but doesn’t seem to last for very long. I think that I really prefer a stick to a roller ball, and unfortunately this one is a roller ball. Still, I love the light, floral scent. I think that this would work fine for people who don’t sweat very much, but it just can’t cut it for the average person’s average day. Still, it’s a nice, affordable, natural option for those who are looking for it. However, comparing it to Tom’s of Maine natural deodorant, I’m certain that Tom’s wins in terms of both lasting power and scent.
