Just a quick Organic Wednesday mention this week, as I’m ill with labrynthitis (truly, the most useless and pathetic disease ever) and the monitor is making me feel slightly nauseous …
Anyhoo, I’ve been testing this Green People deodorant for the last couple of weeks, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised!
Green People say: “This natural deodorant is made without pore-clogging Aluminium, Parabens, ethyl alcohol and artificial fragrances to bring you the purest deodorant that nature can offer.”
I usually prefer my deodorants scented – I’m a big fan of Vaseline Deodorant Cream ordinarily, as I love the scent of it, but it’s gettting harder and harder to find in supermarkets these days – and I usually like an element of anti-perspirant too, it’s the belt’n’braces approach to personal hygiene really. This rolls on smoothly, doesn’t take an age to dry, and, I’ve found that it really seems to work. Yes, if you’re a sweaty betty, then it won’t really suit you, it contains nothing that will stop you perspiring, but it really does seem to inhibit any whiffs. I’ve worn it to work, and out on several social occasions – I do leave the safety of the house and computer sometimes, I swear! – including a gig, a party and a rave (it was an accident), and no troublesome smells.
I was sceptical, I have to admit, but I tried it, I liked it, and I’ll be continuing to use it till it runs out. My deodorant came from Wholefoods (whom I’m currently boycotting – more about that later) and cost £7.50.
