Earth Conscious Lavender Deodorant

This review has been a long time coming. Earth Conscious, an "earth conscious reusable, green, eco friendly store" got in contact with me a while back and asked if I would like to try one of their deodorants. I had been trialling a few other natural deodorants, but was yet to try a cream formula.

First off, I really enjoy the clean lavender scent and would really like to try their citrus and mint versions. I thought I would be really bothered about having to apply the cream deodorant by hand. It was not a massive deal. I thought I would be really lazy with it, but it just worked. I massaged a bit into clean underarms and let it dry whilst I carried on with my morning routine. It applies smoothly to the underarms and I have not had any irritation of the skin.

I didn't notice the deodorant transferring onto my clothes and the scent did help to prevent the midday stink. As it is just a deodorant, it definitely doesn't stop wet underarms, so if this is a concern I would be aware of that. I found that the deodorant worked really well when layered over the top of a crystal rock deodorant.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced natural deodorant and don't mind being hands on with your application, the Earth Conscious Lavender Deodorant* is worth a go. I think with any natural deodorant you are going to have to compromise on antiperspirant performance, at least I have not found one that works for both. I don't think you can compare it with a "normal" deodorant/antiperspirant, that wouldn't be fair. With natural formulas I would be okay with having to reapply during the day. A cream might not be the best to reapply when on the go, but at home or perhaps in a private wash room that would not a problem.
