Bella Organics Deodorant Creme | Review + GIVEAWAY!
Sooo, things are going to get personal here today on Glazed Over. Maybe it seems goofy that today's post is all about deodorant, but if you're in to natural products like me, perhaps you understand the everlasting hunt for the best natural deodorant. 6 out of 7 days a week or so, I wear natural deodorant (the 7th being an aluminum-based antiperspirant deodorant day - usually reserved for heat waves and stressful days). It's just nice to ditch the bad chemicals and keep things simple. Seriously, just google how bad aluminum in deodorant is for you! It's linked to breast cancer among other icky things.
ANYWAY. This past week I've been trying out the Bella Organics Deodorant Creme in Vanilla Mint, a product that's completely new to me, and my first foray in to the deodorant "creme" world - a.k.a. you have to stick your fingers in the tub and slather it over your armpits instead of using a stick or spray.
This deodorant creme is made with natural and organic ingredients: Organic Shea Butter, Organic Arrowroot Powder, (Vegan), Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Aluminum-Free Baking Soda, Organic Peppermint Essential Oil, Organic Vanilla Extract, and Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil.
To apply, take a pea sized amount and rub it in to your armpits and voila! Because this isn't an antiperspirant, so it doesn't keep me completely dry throughout the day, I do tend to reapply this on my lunch break to keep me fresh. The vanilla creme scent smells reminiscent of toothpaste, but not in a bad way. Minty scents make me feel clean, and I especially love the scent of peppermint essential oil so I dig it.
The size you see above is just a little tester, but you can order a 2 o.z. jar for $10.25 at the Bella Organics website where they have a variety of other scents as well.
Overall, I really liked this deodorant. My hunt for the perfect natural deodorant has not ended yet, but I do think that I'll make a purchase of a larger size of the deodorant creme in the future because it is a really nice option.
One lucky winner will get the chance to try their own Bella Organics deodorant creme. Just enter below. Sorry, this contest is open to US residents only.
