Our new range of solid deodorants is here!
Stay fresh and confident all day long, without baking soda or aluminium. Instead, our wonder ingredients keep sweat and smell away: magnesium hydroxide, zinc oxide and bamboo(which absorbs 200% its own weight in sweat and oil). Scented with lavender and vanilla, with jojoba and sweet almond oil for silky smooth underarms.
Please note that this is a solid deodorant, which helps keep your underarms smelling fresh rather than stop sweat, it is not an antiperspirant, this bar will not block your sweat glands.
• Bamboo for the absorption of sweat and sebum - absorbs 200% it's own weight in sweat and oil.
• Magnesium hydroxide is the wonder ingredient for keeping the stench away. It prevents the growth and proliferation of bacteria (whose excretions cause the BO smell) by altering the pH of your skin (not enough to cause irritation though).
• Zinc Oxide is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory.
• Jojoba & sweet almond both aid in the lovely soft application, as well as soft underarms.
I decided to buy from Ethique to see if their products were any good as Facebook kept promoting this company. I did my first order and then to my amazement at the checkout this offer appeared, to have a mini bar of my choice (there were 4 offered) added to my order for free and since I wasn't sold on the solid deodorant idea this was a great way to try the product.
The packaging was great, very informative and useful to store the deodorant in. The bar was a cute heart shape but I still wasn't sure about touching the deodorant. It wasn't sticky like I thought it might be. I took a sniff and wondered how such a delicate fragrance was going to help me not stink at the end of a long active day. I used some at home and found that it was easy to use, didn't feel too strange touching the deodorant and at the end of the day I couldn't smell any floral smells but I didn't smell really bad either.
I wouldn't use this product again but that is only due to the fragrance being floral and my personal preference of a more bold and solid fragrance.
