Ok Ok Ok!!!
I am MAJORRRRR excited about this post.
And before I even begin, I want to tell you guys that this is NOT SPONSORED in any way. I truly love sharing brands and products that work for me on the blog, so that you guys can enjoy them too.
Okay, let’s get right into this.
I don’t know if you guys know this, but the ingredient ‘aluminum’ in deodorant has been known to cause breast cancer. I mean, who actually knows, but there are TONS of articles on this. Google it. There are synthetic fragrances, and all sorts of toxic ingredients in your drugstore brands, and I for one, would rather smell than put that shit anywhere near my armpits. Think about the toxic ingredients going into your pores right after you shave? Armpits are a very sensitive area. Personally, I don’t put any deodorant on after I shave. I try and keep that area free of toxins for at least 8 hours, letting my skin breathe. If anything, I’ll rub some coconut or avocado oil there.
So, for the last 897458345 years, I’ve been searching high and low for a deodorant that’s natural and WORKS. It’s easy to find deodorant brands that are natural. However, it’s extremely difficult to find one that actually keeps the odours away.
Guys, when I say I’ve been searching for 897458345 years, I’m actually not joking.
Just ask my coworkers. They will tell you my obsession with the search for natural deodorants…
In fact, ask anyone.
I think I’ve tried over 15 different brands of natural deodorants, and NOTHING has ever worked as well as this brand that I’m about to tell you about.
My search is over…
I’ve found the absolute BEST natural deodorant. I wouldn’t bring this to The Chic Confidential if I didn’t 100% believe in it.
If you’re like me, out there, searching the world for a good natural deodorant, you can stop now. LOL. Because, this is it. Schmidt’s Naturals deodorant has won me over.
I randomly stumbled upon it in the Homesense “natural” section. You know what I’m talking about right? They have that organic area with a bunch of health and beauty products? I always check there for soaps, body butters, and obviously deodorants.
I’ve bought many, MANY from there. Again, they were all just oookay. I would always have to reapply a couple times a day. And for me, that was fine because I’d rather reapply, than have a deodorant full of toxins, lasting me “48 hours”. No thanks.
But I was still on the hunt to find one that was natural, and longer lasting. One day, browsing the ‘natural’ section of Homesense again, I came across Schmidts ‘Sage & Lavender’ deo. And the rest, my friends, is history…
I can go on and on telling you how much I love this brand. That I don’t have to reapply during the day. That I feel safe putting this under my armpits. But I don’t want to come off like I’m selling this to you. You should all WANT to run out and buy this, because it’s natural and definitely healthier than what you’re using.
I’ve now been using this brand for over 2 months, and I love, love, love it. I reached out to them to send me a bunch, because I wanted to shoot clean products for this post. Not used up deodorant sticks. LOL. And again, this is in no way sponsored. Truly just love this brand. They also come in little travel sizes, which is perfect to throw in your purse.
Okay, who else hates the drugstore brands and is in need of something natural? And for anyone still using deodorant that has aluminum in it, please for the love of God, STOP.
