Every so often, I try to switch to a natural deodorant. Because all the regular antiperspirants/deodorants contain aluminum and I just don’t love the idea of absorbing chemicals into my armpits everyday.
Aluminum seems more appropriate for wrapping up a ham sandwich.
But let me tell you something. That aluminum stuff works like a charm. You could be a reality TV wannabe star, put on a few coats of Secret, throw on an evening dress, head on down to the White House, crash a state dinner, meet the President and you would still smell fresh by the time you are back at home posting the pictures on Facebook.
Natural deodorant? You wouldn’t even have a chance to sweet talk the Secret Service before you had to head home to re-apply.
I most recently tried Tom’s Lavender deodorant because I really like the Tom’s of Maine products and not just because my dad’s name is Tom, although that’s obviously a large part of it.
The label says it works for 12 hours.
But I think that’s a typo because it’s really 12 minutes.
I really lather it on to give myself every advantage. And by the end of the day, I am not fresh. And this is winter people. Can you imagine the results on a sweaty August day?!
So I’m back on my search for an effective natural deodorant. Maybe I should ask The Mouthy Housewives. Doesn’t it seem like those brilliant ladies know everything?
If you have any ideas, my gosh, share immediately.
My only requirements…
1. I will not make my own deodorant. Ever. Come on. I don’t even make myself dinner. It must be sold in a store. Preferably one within 2 miles from my house. I know, greedy. Ok, any store.
2. The deodorant must work for more than 12 minutes.
3. It can’t have some kind of embarrassing name like Amazing Armpits or Pleasing Pits.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
