Tried & Tested: Tisserand Refreshing Wild Rose and Lemon Leaf Deodorant

Saturday 14 July 2012

For the last few months, I have been religiously buying the Dr Organic Pomegranate Deodorant that I raved about, and I still love it.  But you know how fickle I can be with scents, and the time has come for a change.

Whilst browsing Naturismo, I spotted the Tisserand Refreshing Wild Rose and Lemon Leaf Deodorant and decided to give that a go.  It's a gentle deodorant that contains rose, rose geranium, lemon leaf and pink grapefruit oils which blended together give it a floral, yet subtly citrusy scent.  It also has extracts of organic green tear and hawthorn to provide additional antioxidant protection.

The formula is dispensed as a standard roll on, and is non-sticky, non-clogging and absorbs into the skin without any greasiness or white marks.  It's still quite a 'wet' deodorant like most other natural based ones I've tried in the past, so you need to allow it to absorb a little longer than mainstream deodorants.  It's also free from synthetic fragrances (with all of those essential oils there's obviously no need!), parabens and aluminium.

Perfomance-wise, I have to be honest and say it did let me down.  I found that I needed to reapply it at least twice a day, and if the weather was hot or if I wanted to exercise a lot, I had to go back and use my Dr Organic one because this just doesn't work well in the heat. 

Summary: This deodorant from Tisserand didn't work out for me.  It's OK if you're prepared to keep reapplying it throughout the day, but because I don't need to do that with the Dr Organic one, you can see why I found it disappointing.  I'll definitely be going back and trying some of the other scents from the Dr Organic range instead.

Do you use natural based deodorants?

  2. Love the packaging!
    Will need to try this out!

    BTW Love your blog! Let's follow eachother???!

  3. I've never actually tried organic deodorants, normally go for my Sure, Lynx or brands like that. However they do sound interesting hun, just a shame that this was one that wasn't great with having to re-apply it.


    1. Yeah they can be pretty hit or miss but the Dr Organic ones are the best natural based ones I've tried :) xxx

  4. Oh what a shame, it sounds like it would be amazing. I've not heard of the Dr Organic ones? Are they expensive? x

    1. It smells really good but just doesn't last for me sadly.
      Dr Organic deodorants are about a fiver, but they're often in some kind of deal at Holland and Barrett so that's usually when I stock up :) x
