roll-on deodorant (sea mineral scent)
This deodorant features a magnesium-enriched formula, and seeing as half the population is magnesium deficient and need it to regulate more than 300 biochemical functions in the body, adding it to deodorant that’s used daily and worn all day long is genius. I had no issues applying this liquid formula on and loved the fresh sea mineral scent that reminded me of the ocean. This is also the lightest and most compact deodorant out of the 3 types they offer and comes in Bombay Rose, Sea Mineral, Tropical Nectar and Element. Price $7.99

There’s a unique concept behind this spray, which has a base of organic aloe leaf juice and organic cane alcohol and is blended with notes of gardenia & plumeria. In our diets we actually need both prebiotics and probiotics for optimal health and this formula features both, providing not only good bacteria for a healthy flora but also the fertilizer needed to feed that good bacteria. If you love Hawaiian scents this is definitely a product you’d enjoy. Unlike the other products, the sprays come in a glass bottle which makes it eco-friendly but not easily portable. I used this before heading to Universal Studios on a 90 degree day and still smelled ever so slightly like a plumeria flower come night. The other 2 scents offered are Himalayan Cedarwood and Cardamom Rose. Price $14.99
INGREDIENTS: Organic Aloe Leaf Juice, Organic Cane Alcohol,Triethyl Citrate, Lactobacillus Ferment, Alpha Glucan Oligosaccharide, Organic Glycerin, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Sodium Caproyl/Lauroyl Lactylate, Magnesium Chloride, Salvia Oﬃcinalis (Sage)Oil, Heloianthus Annus (Sunﬂower) Seed Oil, Rosmarinus Oﬃcinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Foeniculum Vulgare (Fennel) Fruit Oil , Sclerotium Gel,Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Absolute, Gardenia Jasminoides (Gardenia) Oil, Plumeria Alba Flower Extract.
45% fair trade certified and made with a blend of prebiotics, minerals, butters and essential oils – all while remaining affordable at under $10 – the deodorant sticks are ph balanced, help good bacteria flourish, and provide 24 hour odor protection. The peppermint and peppermint oil gives it the minty kick. I didn’t exactly test out the 24 hour part as morning to night is good enough for me. I tested this one specifically to see if it would last even through a Drake concert filled with 17k people after having been applied during the day and really held up. At one point during the concert I started getting a hit of bad body odor and was afraid it might be me, but after I left the concert it was clear that it was most likely the men sitting around me who were the culprit. My only complaint with this deodorant is that it is a little drier than I’d like it to be as I’m used to slicker applications and tiny clumps of product are visible when you’re further into using the product.
