review: earth science deodorant

earth science deodorant / lifeinblush.com

Greening my make-up bag has been a real labour of love as I’ve spent countless hours researching and testing. I’m pretty impressed with the performance of all my replacements and I must say my excitement over finding an organic deodorant that works is unparalleled. I had tested so many and each one left me feeling smellier, frustrated and defeated.

I had almost given up thinking my unscented, basic stick of Secret was ok, but then I read an article that said The Environmental Protection Agency requires workers to wear protective gloves, clothing, and goggles when handling chemicals used to make antiperspirants. Workers are even warned against skin contact with these chemicals because they are known to cause brain, liver, and kidney abnormalities.

So back to the drawing board I went. Weeks later I came across earth science ($7) while shopping at my favourite health food store and decided to give it a go since it was vegan and free of parabens, aluminum and other harsh chemicals.

This is perhaps the single best discovery I’ve made in the green beauty world to date. Bold statement? You betcha. Not only did it work for me, but it also worked for my boyfriend who swears by it as the only product that has eliminated his excessive armpit sweat issue. Well, non-issue now : )

If you’re thinking about switching to a natural deodorant, or are unhappy with the one you have I highly recommend this brand. It’s a game changer.

I did not receive a compensation for this review. All opinions are my own!

    Have you tried soapwella’s deodorant? I recently bought it and I love it! Only complaint is that is has to be applied by hand. But it legit works.

    Also, you should check out the detox market at King and Peter if you haven’t yet. Lots of goodies that are right up your alley.

    • Hi Maria – I haven’t tried soapwella, but I’ve heard a lot about it. I’ll have to try it next, thanks 🙂 Oh and I’m in love with the detox market! It’s actually verging on an unhealthy obsession, haha. Have a great weekend!
