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. 

*sigh*

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. 

Ever. 

You.  Will. Smell. 

Bad. 

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!
