I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
Here is a scenario that I think many of you can follow. It’s summer time and you’re out shopping, working, or doing just about anything. After you took your shower in the morning you applied your deodorant and finished getting dressed. Before you left the house you looked under your arms and you could see a white mark left on your tank top from the deodorant. What a hassle. As the day goes on you feel yourself begin to sweat under your arms. At times they may even begin to itch and get irritated. Then you ask yourself does this deodorant even work? I mean come on your out an about and the last thing you want to worry about is having sweaty and smelly armpits. I know its gross and its not everyone’s favorite topic but it is a reality that most people face.
Another downside to using the typical deodorants and antiperspirants are the possible negative health effects. Most products contain aluminum or some other metal that has been possibly linked with certain medical conditions. These products also contain many other chemicals, which can explain the red skin irritation that one usually experience when using them. Several years ago I stopped using the regular deodorants and switched to an all-natural brand. There are several out there that claim to be all natural so it is best to read the ingredients.
As a result of using this one particular all-natural deodorant my skin does not get irritated any more. There are no more embarrassing white stains on my clothes and for the most part I stay odor free. I say for the most part because sometimes when it’s a real hot and muggy day the deodorant doesn’t last. So I reapply and go on with the day. This is not always convenient. Because of this I have been looking for a better all-natural product that last longer. After experimenting with various brands and scents I came across Truly’sall natural, long lasting cream deodorant.
This is a very unique type of deodorant since it does not come in a stick or a spray. Instead it comes in a tub and you apply it with your fingers.
Sounds weird at first and takes a bit of getting used to. I was like I don’t want to rub stuff into my armpits. But then I realized I usually apply deodorant right after the shower so my armpits are clean anyway. Plus on the container it claims that it is a natural deodorant that lasts all day. I had to give it a try and find out for myself.
First Truly’s has a very pleasing smell to it. No strong perfumes or flowery smells. It has the slight odor of coconut and something else I can’t put my finger on. Whatever it is it smells great. As per the instructions I took a pea sized piece of the deodorant and rub it into my underarms. It rubbed in smoothly and didn’t leave any waxy residue. As the day went on I noticed that my underarms did not smell. Even thought I did my share of running around Truly’s held out and kept me from smelling. Over the next couple of days I got used to the idea of applying my deodorant with my fingers. And I have to say Truly’s truly does work. No pun intended. My only pet peeve is that the product is a little stiff at first and takes getting used to applying. However it does say on the tub that it softens up a bit in warmer weather. So I will look forward to this summer when I am running around and want to smell my best.
