So back in April I decided to try a natural deodorant, and wrote about it here.
If you didn’t read it, I was basically covering off that I had wanted to try a natural deodorant for some time but was nervous about this as I am naturally a sweaty (yep you heard me) and anxious person.
I used the Salt of the Earth roll on deodorant for a couple weeks and then wrote about my experience. I said that I was happy to keep using it, but whilst it did help with odour, it didn’t stop excessive sweating.
Well, after using it for a good couple months I can confirm – it’s a yes from me. Yes I still love it, yes I think it’s great, and yes I have already ordered my next one.
I also noticed that I don’t have as much trouble with excessive sweating anymore. It probably took a few weeks but my body seemed to adjust. Maybe it’s getting used to the change of product and lack of chemicals I don’t know, but I’m much happier and more confident than I have been for years to go out for the day or wear nice clothes without worrying about body odour or getting big old damp patches in my outfits.
I have been on multiple long dog walks through the woods and fields, and yes I get a bit sweaty in the heat and doing the exercise but only as much as any other person would. And, when I get home from these walks, I don’t need to dive in the shower or change clothes. In fact, I sometimes give myself the sniff test (yep, seriously) and I can still smell the lovely scent of the deodorant!
I’ve used it prior to jumping on the exercise bike and obviously you work up a sweat doing that and will want to shower after, but the deodorant does a great job and you don’t stink up the gym (or living room in my case).
To summarise, thank you to Salt Of The Earth for giving me this game changer, and I would absolutely recommend trying it yourself.
Have you had a similar or different experience to mine? Let me know!
