Tried & Tested: Dr Organic Pomegranate Deodorant

I made the switch to more natural based deodorants a few years ago and had mainly stuck with my trusty Crystal Spring deodorant which is fragrance free. For a change, I picked up the Dr Organic Pomegranate Deodorant to try out and have been road testing it for a few weeks. My main two reasons for buying this was that it was pretty cheap for an organic deodorant (these retail for about £4.29 for 50ml) and it smelt incredible. Honestly, I could not stop sniffing this in the shop and had to refrain from purchasing the entire Pomegranate range by Dr Organic. If you have a Holland and Barratt near you, pop in and have a sniff of this range, it's seriously amazing!

Onto the deodorant itself, it's a liquid cream based roll-on that is free of Aluminium, SLS, Parabens and Alcohol, as well as artificial colours, fragrances and preservative. The active and organic ingredients come from Pomegranate, Aloe Vera, Icelandic Moss, Vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Oil. The main thing to remember about natural based deodorants is that they won't stop you from sweating as they're not antiperspirants. I don't think it's very good for your skin to block it with chemicals to stop it from doing its natural function of perspiring, which is why I use these deodorants instead. Natural deodorants will however eliminate odour from your sweat, so don't worry, you're not going to be walking around reeking of BO! The deodorants from Dr Organic all have a non-pore clogging formula and I found this very effective. As it's a natural liquid cream roll-on, on application it is wet of course and does take a little time to dry. I don't find this a problem for me personally, as I always apply deodorant straight after a shower, so by the time I've put on my body lotion and everything else, it's dry and fine for me to get dressed. You can however speed the drying time up with a quick blast of your hairdryer if you wish.

Protection-wise, I found it worked well throughout the day without needing to be reapplied, but I did need to reapply it if I did some exercise (which seems normal for most conventional deodorants too). It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and can be applied straight away after shaving with no stinging at all. But the best thing about this deodorant is the scent. I can smell it subtly throughout the day and it's so nice. Lovely, fresh and feminine, perfect!

Have you tried any natural/organic deodorants?

  5. I have been keen to try this range as I love the smell of Pomegranate and apparently it has great antioxidant qualities too. I have been a bit cautious that a completely natural deodorant wouldn't 'do the trick' enough but you might have persuaded me to try :)

  7. I've been looking for a more natural deodorant, this looks great! Like how it's available from H&B too so no online ordering and waiting ages for it to be delivered! Cheap too!
    Is it a girly smell or do you think unisex?

    1. I'd say it's definitely more of a girly scent in my opinion, but would recommend having a look at the rest of the Dr Organic deos in H&B. They have lots of ranges so something like the Manuka Honey one might be more unisex? x

  8. What do you use to stop sweating? I've been trying to use more natural deodorants but I sweat quite a bit from nerves : (

    1. Can only recommend an antiperspirant as no natural deodorants do anything for blocking sweating, they just absorb the bacteria that causes body odour. Have heard good things about the mineral antiperspirant from Garnier which might be worth a try as it's paraben & alcohol free. Hope that helps :)

    2. Opps, I meant to say antiperspirant instead of deodorant lol. Thank you, I'll have to try the Garnier one out. Have fun in Japan :) x
