Just few years ago finding an effective aluminium fee deodorant was nearly impossible. Forward few years and there are plenty of options that do work. It is often a matter of trial and error. And sometimes it is also a matter of positioning the product as a high end, like Aurelia did. I got this deodorant in a sample set that was sent to me by Content Beauty when I bought Imelda Burke fab book on green beauty.
PERFORMANCE: it works in winter and in summer. I tried it whilst exercising, travelling, in normal day to day situations and no bad odor in sight. The texture is great as it is sort of gel/cream like. A little goes a long way and it spreads very easily on the armpits.
I use it every morning and it keeps me odor free all day. Also in summer – in Milan it gets very hot and this works well as a deodorant. When it comes to keeping wet patches at bay I prefer The Natural deodorant Company deodorant.
What’s the problem with this deodorant is the price tag: it costs more than double the average price of natural deodorants on the market. If you want to splurge it is a very effective options, but if you want an effective deodorant that does the job at a reasonable amount of money (just over 10 euros) I would go for Soapwalla or The Natural Deodorant Company – that also contain 10 grams more!
