Everybody sweats, it’s human. The body needs to sweat in order to regulate the body temperature. But in today’s society sweat stains and unpleasant smells can damage your reputation for good. It’s like this odd believe that women’s legs should always look smooth and shiny and be without a single hair. It’s unnatural and absurd.
I decided to sweat without smelling badly. Last christmas I received a little set of Aurelia Skincare products. My family got used to the fact that I live vegan now and they tried to support my decision by giving me cruelty-free cosmetic products.
One product of this self-made set became my absolute favorite: the botanical cream deodorant. As you can see on the photo, this deodorant has a creamy texture. It smells powdery fresh, with a strong minty note. At first I wasn’t sure if this natural deodorant could really conquer the smell of sweat, but ohhh yes it does!
It is so easy to use. Simply apply some cream with your washed fingertips on your clean skin. While rubbing it in, you can see the cream quickly starting to transform into a powdery consistency. That’s it!
I always check the list of the ingredients to see if the product is really free things like synthetic fragrances, parabens, mineral oil, silicones, propylene glycol, phtalates, GMO’s, PEGs,…
These are the ingredients of the botanical cream deodorant by Aurelia Skincare: Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Coco-Caprylate (derived from coconuts), Sodium Bicarbonate, Maranta Arundinacea (Arrowroot) Extract, Kaolin, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil Expressed, Citrus Bergamia Peel (Bergamot) Oil Expressed, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Glycerin (plant derived), Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Linalool*, Limonene*, Geraniol*, Farnesol* (*naturally occurring in essential oil)
This product is absolutely natural. It is also not tested on animals, which makes it cruelty-free. If you like to buy it, I recommend buying it on AureliaSkincare.com or on Cultbeauty.co.uk, they have the fairest prices. The deodorant costs 18£, which is about 22€.
Yes, it’s the most expensive deodorant I’ve ever had, but it’s also the best one.
