If you’re new to the world of natural deodorants, they often come in different formats and states. Some come as crystals, roll on liquids or even solid forms. They are also free of aluminum-based ingredients which have been shown to cause cancer, while still maintaining its effectiveness at keeping you feeling and smelling fresh. Schmidt’s natural deodorants are also made with essential oils and plant extracts, making it the ultimate natural deodorant.
Upon opening the deodorant, I immediately felt a sense of calmness and relaxation from the lavender and sage essential oils found in the product itself. I love the smell of lavender and found that the sage helped balance it out really nicely. This deodorant comes in a solid stick format and the directions do say that you need to warm it up a bit to soften the oils. After warming it by letting it touch my skin for a few moments, I did find that it did glide on chalky and left a residue behind. However, after running it over a few times with the applicator, the residue absorbed right into my skin.
I also wanted to find a deodorant that would leave me smelling fresh after a full working day as well as my work out, since I work out at least 3 times a week after work. I usually do find that natural deodorants fall short of keeping me protected after the 8-hour mark, however this one did leave me feeling fresh even after my workout into my shower.
Finally, I love that these products are cruelty free, Leaping Bunny Certified and Certified Vegan. It makes me happy to see high quality products available and accessible for those who are concerned with living a sustainable lifestyle.
Hope you guys enjoyed this review!
Now set forth and be savvy!
