Natural Deodorant Review and Giveaway


*Giveaway Closed* 

Winner is entry #8 

Congratulations rubynreba



I need a deodorant that will not irritate my skin, but also masks my odor well. There are only about handful of deodorants that I do both. After about month of reviewing Tropical Traditions roll on natural deodorants I’ve put it on my list of good deodorants.

I typically don’t like roll-on deodorants. They tend to leave my armpits feeling gooey/sticky. A deodorant has to feel good too, not just mask odors. Tropical Traditions did both; instead of leaving behind a sticky texture this natural roll on deodorant left behind a smooth thin layer of scented oil on my armpit.

I received 3 roll on natural deodorants from Tropical Traditions: Classic, Frankincense, Lavender. The scent of each one is soft, subtle and calming, not at all overpowering. All ingredients in each deodorant, about 8-10, are easy to read, understand and completely natural. My favorite deodorant to use has been the lavender scented deodorant. That isn’t to say the others don’t work well or smell great too.

What about the price? Natural deodorants tend to be expensive and from my limited experience don’t seem to do the job as well as I would like. Tropical Traditions deodorant is pricey, but it does do the job and does it well. If I ever had to reapply it was at most once a day and usually on days when didn’t get to sit down all day. A few times with one of my thin blouses I noticed the deodorant would leave a slight wet stain as if sweat in the armpit of the sleeve. The trick to that was to put on the deodorant a few minutes before putting on the blouse to let the deodorant dry a bit. Then carefully put on the blouse.

Be careful not to let the deodorant tip over either. If not shut tightly, it will spill. Trust me, you don't want to waste any of this. 

Note: Healthy Buyer members can buy in bulk and save some money on deodorant and other items.

The Giveaway: Open to U.S. & Canada. One lucky winner will receive their choice of Tropical Traditions roll on natural deodorants. *Deadline: June 15th, 2011.

  70. Tough choice! I think I'd ultimately choose the lavender, if only to make sure I could keep it for myself and out of the hands of my teenage son and husband!
