My sister has been trying to get me to go with a natural deodorant for years, but I really like my Secret Clinical Strength. I live in the desert, and with temps soaring above 115 regularly, I need something strong.
A few beauty blogger friends of mine have told me about Lavanila, which I do like, and the scent is amazing! But, it really can’t handle the sweat of someone who lives in the heat. I spent 2 hours at the DMV with no air conditioning! That’s right, it broke that day. I was sweaty, and honestly didn’t smell, but it did not last the rest of the day. By the end of my Costco trip, I was stinky, like maybe it had worn off.
I reapplied twice.
So next up is Native. A friend suggested this, and in a weird twist of fate, my sister texted me she’d just ordered a new deodorant she’d found called Native. I was like OMG I just bought it too!
So here we are, a week into it, and so far so good. It doesn’t smell as good as the Lavanila, but it holds up to my sweat. Now just a huge reminder, this is NOT an antiperspirant. You will sweat.
But I don’t smell, so there’s that! I don’t know if I’ll be able to stick with it, I really hate feeling sweaty, but I guess as long as no one else knows, and I don’t smell, that I can deal with it.
Their customer service is awesome, the price is cheaper than Secret Clinical Strength, and it smells better too. I’m on a subscription plan, so I’ll keep you guys posted.
