A lot of people might frown a bit at this one and wonder…really? Underarm deodorant is something that doesn’t get written about too often I feel. It’s something everyone’s used at least once in their lives and usually when they are in a tearing hurry and need to not stink.
Beginning with the aerosol sprays which smelled pretty good but did a good bit of damage to the environment, to the roll-ons which were a bit better but still had some amount of chemicals that many were uncomfortable using for too long to something called a “Pit Paste“- the product that I’ll be reviewing today.
Another offering from the brand Wild Ideas (one I am determined to sample more and more items from) is their underarm deodorant called Pit Paste.
The “pit” part is evident but the paste is where some people might make a face but before you start thinking of a gooey, paste-y kind of substance, let me assure you that it’s nothing of the sort and is a solid mixture that’s to be applied onto the armpits the same way one would apply lip balm with their fingers.
Available in 5 different scents- Cedarwood&Daffodil, Green Apple&Tea Tree, Lavender, Orange&Cinnamon and Rosemary&Honeysuckle, each paste is available in glass jars of 120 gms each or you can try out a starter pack of each one in smaller sizes of 8 gms together. The ingredients have been chosen keeping in mind the benefits of the ones it’s named after with the base ingredients being Coconut oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax, Baking Soda and Corn Flour.
My personal experience has been that despite the very mild scents that come forth when you test each one, they all have lingering smells and it’s very easy to apply it. It’s literally at your finger tips. And because of the beeswax base, it gets washed right out in the shower or with a bit of hot water.
So switch over to the natural alternative for your body. Keep yourself clean, while you go green, smelling good and keep your pits happy in the process!
