Deodorant – What’s worked for me

Ok, we’re getting a little personal here.  Let’s face it, I don’t like to stink.  I don’t sweat a ton, so for me, that isn’t a big issue that I worry about.  So, when it comes to finding the right deodorant for me, I look for something that will provide odor protection more than anything.

I used to use standard antiperspirant, but I wanted to try to find something without aluminum and something that was more natural with better ingredients.  I honestly had a hard time finding one that worked well.  One would work for a few hours or not work at all (gross!).  I feel like I’ve tried them all (I haven’t, but you know what I mean).  

I finally stopped looking when I found LAVANILA’s The Healthy Deodorant from Sephora.  I tried one of the smaller sample sizes and I was extremely impressed.

I started with the vanilla lavender scent and I love it.  It doesn’t have parabens or aluminum.  It has essential oils to help fight odor and it works!!  I’ve been using it for a few years now, and I’ve really enjoyed using this one!

This stick will last a good while – about 6 months or so.  It costs $14, but you are definitely getting what you are paying for.

I just started using the Sport Luxe edition.  I like it, but I think I like the vanilla lavender better.  It just smells good.

Overall, I have been very happy with the company and product.  It works and I want to try other items from the brand.  They have body wash, perfumes, body butter, etc.  Below is an excerpt to provide a little more background on the company from

Have you had a hard time finding the “perfect” deodorant?  What are you using?

Wishing you all the bright fireflies,
