SCHMIDT'S NATURAL DEODORANT | RIVALS REXONA

All natural, vegan and cruelty free. Schmidt's Deodorant utilizes the most simplest and health conscious ingredients without undermining performance and value.

Schmidt's Deodorant is cream based that will eliminate odors all day and well into the next day. That is no exaggeration. Sydney's heat wave (35°C/95°F) well and truly placed these deodorants under perfect testing conditions. Throughout the day, you will find me sneaking in a sniff to make sure my armpits were stench free and each time I was surprised I still smelt like Lavender. Even though I may have been caught a few times sniffing, I was praising hallelujah. I did still sweat, but minimal and without any sweat patches. This is not an antiperspirant and rightfully so, as we do not want to block our pores. But it does contain plant powders that may help keep you dry.

Such a simple blend of butters and oils that can easily rival commercial brands. It'll last longer than conventional brands (3-4 months if used everyday) with a price so reasonable, especially for a natural product. There are five different scents being offered, one being fragrance free. The remaining are all beautiful scented, without being overpowering. My senses have relished in each scent and you'll easily find a favorite among the five.

All of the cream deodorants have a hard consistency, which needs to be scooped out with a little spatula that is provided. Once rubbed between your fingers, the cream will soften with a slight grainy texture, smoothing over your armpits quickly and easily. When I first tried this deodorant, I found it to be inconvenient and much preferred a spray. But after a few days, I wasn't bothered by it and was happily waving my arms in the air. Might have looked as awkward as it sounds.

Baking soda is a main ingredient in each formulation and I know some can be sensitive to it. If you have tried Schmidt's deo and have had a reaction, than Meow Meow Tweet Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream is a great alternative. It's natural and it's formulation is without baking soda and said to work just as well. I generally have sensitive skin, but had no reaction to Schmidt's formulation.

I've been using the lavender & sage one for months now, and I'm never using anything else! It's the only natural deodorant that's worked for me.
