Changing from a chemical laden life to a more natural lifestyle is a constantly evolving process. It's not like flipping a switch from one to the other. I shared recently that I'd changed to more natural hair products several years ago. When the opportunity came up for me to review Truly's Natural Deodorant, I had heard good things about the product on another blog, so I decided to give it a try.
When it arrived, it was a warm day, and the product was creamy. It passed the sniff test, with a scent that reminds me of suntan oil.
Check out that ingredient list! Organic coconut oil, organic powdered sugar, baking soda, and beeswax! That's it! No scary stuff. Natural enough that I could, conceivably make it in my own kitchen, if I were into that sort of thing. Which, given that I have a hard time making the essential things, like dinner, is not going to happen. But it could, in theory.
Okay, so it's natural. But does it work?? I remember being told about the dangers of aluminum in antiperspirant many years ago and deciding I'd rather risk Alzheimer's later in life than have stinky pits. I think there's a tendency to think that natural=ineffective.
I gave it a try. I noticed a little dampness a couple times, but no unpleasant odors. I was pleased with how well it works.
Truly's also comes in a kids version, and in creamsicle scent.
I think the biggest downside to this product is the packaging. I'm used to bar style antiperspirant, which is easy to apply without getting messy. Using Truly's Natural Deodorant, you have to scoop up a little bit and smooth it on with your fingers. Not a big deal, and not a huge deterrent, but it's "different," and different can take some getting used to.
You can purchase Truly's from their website, or on Amazon, where it's currently selling for $8.99.
