Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant

I'm not the type of person who wants to put a bunch of fruity smelling stuff under my arms. I don't want pear or apple or cherry in my deodorant. I've always been more of a "clean" or "fresh" user. So I was a little skeptical putting vanilla on my pits. Sometimes I don't like the way scented deodorant mixes with your perfume.

As you probably know, deodorants and antiperspirants contain aluminum, which works to close pores and stop sweat and odor from escaping the body. Antiperspirants are designed to be absorbed, so this can potentially cause problems with the endocrine and lymphatic systems, breast cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

With everyone getting greener with everything- house cleaning products, cosmetics, skin care, why wouldn't you want to with your deodorant? Lavanila boasts a 100% natural, healthy solution free of aluminum and harsh chemicals. Contains NO: Petrochemicals, Phtalates, Propylene glycol, Mineral oils, Silicone, Synthetic dyes, Sulfates or Parabens.

Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant ($18) in Pure Vanilla, is a thick round stick of deodorant that feels cooling and smells surprisingly un-vanilla-y. The vanilla is very faint. It's a bit musky. And it doesn't interfere with whatever fragrance you're wearing. Of all the deodorants I've tried, this one is hands down my favorite. It makes me want to try the matching fragrance and lotion. I also want to try the Vanilla Lavender. As with any deodorant or antiperspirant, they don't protect you for too long. With this one I can get 2 or 3 hours if I'm sweating heavily, 4 or 5 with minimal activity. This was a winner on all points for me. I like the product, the scent, the result and the packaging. The packaging is super cute. The fact it does not contain aluminum is a big + in my book. The $18 price tag is a bit much, but worth it. I'm also interested in The Body Shop's new DeoDry Dry-Effect Deodorant ($8) which is all natural too, so maybe that review will pop up soon.
