About three years ago I switched from using antiperspirant to deodorant. It took my body about a month to adjust but after that period I’ve been so happy that I stopped using antiperspirant. At first, I thought I would sweat and smell so much worse when I stopped using antiperspirant and the first little while I was constantly scrubbing my armpits and spraying lots of perfume while my body adjusted. Turns out though that I sweat a lot less now and I don’t stink as much. My body has found a happy balance.
For the last few years, I have been putting so many different deodorants to the test, seeing what would work for my body chemistry and provide me with all day freshness. Of all the ones I’ve tried, the ones I’ve listed below are my favourite. I’ve arranged them from my ultimate favourite to favourite 🙂
1. Kiss My Face Active Life Deodorant (Fragrance-Free)
It’s weird to think that a fragrance free deodorant would keep me feeling really fresh and stink-free! I guess having no scent works great for me and my body chemistry. This is a gel consistency and I like the way it glides under my arms.
It’ll last about 8-9 hours before I feel like I’d need to reapply. Even if I’m having an active day, I know this will keep me protected. Because I can’t find this in store, I always order 3-4 at a time online. I think this comes in other scents but I love the fragrance free formula.
2. Yves Rocher 24h Deodorant in Cotton Flower from India
This is a roller ball deodorant and I’ve mentioned this before in my empties post. At first, this feels really watery so I have to be careful with how much I use for the first few uses. After that, I feel like the consistency thins out and applies a little bit more evenly. It is very creamy so it almost feels like it moisturizes under my arms as well.
I really love the smell of this and unlike the Kiss my Face Deodorant, I feel like it lasts a little bit longer on me. The only other downside is that this empties pretty quickly on me so I find I constantly have to repurchase. I keep backups of this always as well!
3. Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes
I love the scent of these wipes and how they are so perfect for on the go! One wipe is too big for me so I’ll split it into two which is great because then I don’t feel like I’m being wasteful.
If I know I have a long day (ie work then an evening out) I like to use this because I can keep the wipes with me and reapply as needed. I find that this is a great option to keep with you if you want to freshen up later in the day or after the gym. I have not tried the other scents but I really enjoy this coconut scent because it’s light and tropical and reminds me of summer.
Well, there you go! My top deodorants! Let me know if you use deodorants and what your favourite brand is or if you’ve tried any of the ones I’ve listed above.
Lots of Love,
