Natural Deodorant review

LEKKERINEENPOTJE | NATURAL DEODORANT REVIEW | ANNATWENTYSEVEN

It is early in the morning when my alarm goes off. I step out of bed, walk down stairs to the bathroom, and spray on some deodorant. You know, those aluminium spray cans from Nivea, Dove or some other big brand. As I sprayed my armpits, making sure I do not use too much, I almost faint. The spray hurts my lungs, as it always does. Now I start thinking, if this feels wrong to my lungs, how damaging is it to my skin? Or bigger, the environment! A few days after this thought (I stayed home and was avoiding any deodorant) I went online with this thought and saw a product flashing by on Instagram "Natural Deodorant Lavender", I like lavender...

As I click on the picture of the product I get excited. "lekker in een potje" (translated badly: nicely in a container) what a nice name! I scroll through their Instagram grid and find that they are an all natural brand, their deodorant being 100% made out of plants, I like that. They do not use any plastic packaging, and the design of the product is really cute!

It seems like a wonderful product, doesn't it? But is it? I have tested this product for 10 days, and I can happily say it is. At first I was a bit scared because of the "corn flour" used in the product (I'm allergic to corn). But soon I realised that I haven't felt so happy about a deodorant in a long time.

As you can see I got the lavender version. They also have a natural scent and a rosemary-mint version! This is a Dutch brand, I don't know if they sell internationally. You can find their website and webshop here.

Anyway, the scent of lavender is pleasant. When I put a little finger tip of the product under my arms, the lavender scent is quite strong. As soon as the product warms up, it's easier to apply and the smell fades a little.

If you're having a normal day with normal activity this product will be PERFECT for you. As I have tested it for only 10 days I can say that is keeps all the nasty smells from smelling 9 days out of 10. One day I was quite stressed, running around a lot (almost missing the bus) and I did smell a bit at the end of the day. Way less however as I used to when I was using my spray deodorant.

So yes, I highly recommend this product. Although it's a bit pricey (€6,99 for 30ml) I still think it is better to use a natural product over a gas explosion ;)

When it comes to the size of the product, I could probably use it for +- 3 months!

(for all the Dutch people: bij de Albert Heijn hadden ze laatst een mooie aanbieding waar je 2 voor de prijs van 1 kon kopen! Dus houd zeker even de instagram pagina van @lekkerineenpotje in de gaten)

With this blogpost I do not mean you to go buy this exact product (if you do want it, go for it!), I want you to look into natural deodorants yourself. Find a local brand which sells a natural deodorant, or try to make it yourself! All I want is for you to feel better in your own skin! And maybe do something good for the environment!

This blogpost is not sponsored in anyway, I just wanted to share a thought and my enthusiasm with you!

So, are you going to try an all natural deodorant any time soon?
If you do, please let me know in the comments!

See you soon!

Sincerely,
Anna

  1. Leuk dit! Ik ga de site eens bekijken. Ik gebruik eigenlijk vooral rollers van de Yves Rocher maar ik heb ook zo'n Salt of the earth aluinsteen. Werkt ook prima!
