Remember when I was on the hunt for the best natural deodorant? It’s been a quarter and I feel like I can confidently give feedback on how it’s going. I’ve been using Schmidts Rose + Vanilla religiously since November and it’s definitely better than the deodorants I’ve tried in the past. Would I buy it again? I would, but honestly, I want to try Native and LaVanila sport to see how they fare. But I know if they don’t work, I can go back to Schmidt’s . Also, I’d rather try a different scent, too..I want something fresh smelling and not floral and the Rose scent stains light clothing…see below. (And if you don’t like Schmidt’s or it doesn’t work for you, check out the comments on my original post…there are awesome recommendations!)
A couple tricks I’ve picked up since using it: don’t wear it with white silk. Seriously…it’ll stain. Also, it works with everyday perspiration but when I would get the ‘nervous sweats,’ it didn’t work. So, I cheated a few times and put on my secret stash of Dove when I had a big meeting or presentation in the morning–because the nervous sweats are nothing to mess with (I know, I know, but I told you I do that from time to time). Lastly, it works best if you reapply it throughout the day. Might be weird to bring your deodorant to work BUT if you work out after the office, it might be worth throwing it in your bag. Sometimes I’d apply it before bed and again in the morning–it worked great that day.
(I’ve heard a lot about Kopari lately – has anyone tried or is it just fancy coconut oil? It’s like the 10th ingredient….)
