Why do I have to be so sweaty? And why are some people sweaty and some aren’t? I don’t understand how that’s fair. Well sadly, I fall under the excessively sweaty person category. And I was bummed to finally find out that about a year ago that normal over the counter deodorant and antiperspirant is filled with crap. Check this out…most deodorants and antiperspirants are filled with aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol, triclosan, steareths. Don’t know what any of things are? I didn’t either. But you can find all the frightening deets here. These ingredients are pretty sketch and toxic for the body and your hormones. And think about what it’s like when you’re putting it into straight into your sweaty pores. Even sketchier.
Back in January, I shared my obsession with Primally Pure Deodorant and I was so pumped to see that they recently came out with a new product, their Charcoal Deodorant!! I’ve been in love with Beautycounter charcoal mask and charcoal bar so I was pumped to try this stuff out! This new deodorant contains less baking soda than the original formula and is fortified with kaolin clay which is a powerful detoxifier and non-nano zinc oxide which soothes irritation and combats odor. And th activated coconut charcoal contains added detoxifying benefits while it also deodorizes and disinfects. PLUS it goes on clear and doesn’t stain clothes!
Here are the ingredients inside the Charcoal Deodorant: Organic Arrowroot Powder, Fair Trade Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Tallow from Grass-Fed Cows, Organic Beeswax, Baking Soda, Non-nano Zinc Oxide, White Kaolin Clay, Activated Coconut Charcoal, Organic Essential Oils of Eucalyptus and Peppermint
And guess what? It really does work! I’ve LOVED it. I love the original deodorant but this charcoal deodorant goes on smoother and easier and it really lasts! And the new Geranium Deodorant is awesome too! If you’re sensitive to baking soda, this deodorant t contains a small amount of baking soda, less than the original formula and a tad bit more than the sensitive formula. This deodorant is awesome for sensitive skin while still actually protecting against odor!
Another Primally Pure product I’ve been using lately and love is their Fancy Face Serum. This serum contains pure and unrefined oils that help diminish fine lines, scarring, age spots, discolorations and more. In this little bottle, you’ll find tons of different oils like hazelnut oil, neem oil, argan oil, cypress essential oil, thyme essential oil and a ton of others that are not only helpful for tightening and brightening the skin, but are incredibly wonderful when it comes to acne and blemishes. So whenever it’s that time of the month and my skin decides to act up, I put this serum on the blemish at night and it’s better by morning. No joke. It’s like magic!
These new products are bomb. Straight up. I took the Fancy Face Serum and the Charcoal Deodorant with me while traveling to Austin then Mexico then Nebraska, and I haven’t had a single break out or a single stinky pit! It’s been quite nice! Can’t wait to see what Primally Pure comes out with next!
