Jason Calming Lavender Deodorant Stick


Now, I’m not a particularly sweaty person, and I’m not usually a particularly smelly one either. Except … when I use this, the Jason Calming Lavender Deodorant Stick, I apparently am. 


The deodorant stick promises “clinically tested all day odor protection”  with  “no aluminum, parabens, phthalates or or propylene glycol”.  It uses a mix of zinc, cornstarch and baking soda, and (I must say)  it smells amazing. The lavender scent is gorgeous, a herby-menthol woosh of cool and calming lavender, it’s a joy to apply, smooth, silky, it doesn’t drag, and feels lovely on the pits. 

But. It. Doesn’t. Bloody. Work. 

At. All. 


You.  Will. Smell. 


You get, maybe, an hours smell-protection *tops*.   I noticed earlier this week that I was getting a bit whiffy towards lunchtime (and bear in mind I have a smell disability that renders body-smells almost entirely  “invisible” to me – so if *I* could smell it, god alone knows how “fragrant” I have been to others!), but even in spite of scrupulous daily pit hygiene (as a recovering anosmic, multiple pit washings and deodorant applications are a daily – paranoid – fact of life), this stuff is a dud. A big, fat, SMELLY dud. 

Shame, I’d been hoping to move from the “triple strength” chemical, aluminium-heavy stuff I’ve been relying on for the last couple of years since I lost my sense of smell, but it looks like this was not the greatest place to start.

Jason Calming Lavender Deodorant Stick? You STINK.

    Try the Aurelia deodorant (in a jar). I'm quite sweaty and have been using and loving it for a while!
