Tried & Tested: SkinLikes 100% Natural Deodorant review

Sunday, 15 June 2014

Deodorant certainly isn't the sexiest product to talk about, but as the majority of us use some form of it on a regular basis, it makes sense for a post like this to pop up every now and again.  Over the last couple of weeks, I put my beloved Dr Organic Pomegrante Deodorant into storage and whipped out a shiny new one to try out from SkinLikes.

This eco-friendly roll on deodorant is 100% natural and is made from a blend of Scottish Spring Water, Bicarbonate of Soda and a special mix of plant-based Essential Oils.  Upon taking the cap off, I was hit by a lovely fresh and floral scent where I can detect some Jasmine which I adore.  The deodorant is non-sticky, dries quickly and I didn't experience any irritation, even when I applied it to freshly shaven pits.  I've had some pretty terrible experiences with deodorants in the past when it comes to the latter, so that's definitely a winner in my books!      

So does it work?  Yes!  I'm pleased to say that this eliminates body odour for me and keeps me smelling fresh throughout the day.  In this new summer heat, I've had to reapply it a couple of times though, but that's generally what I expect to do with natural deodorants in this kind of weather.  It's worth pointing out (especially if you're reading this and you're new to natural deodorants), that this isn't an antiperspirant* so it's not going to stop you from sweating, but it will keep the BO at bay.

*[I really try to steer clear of antiperspirants but will admit that I do use one on certain occasions during the summer months when it gets really hot, not gonna lie!]

SkinLikes 100% Natural Deodorant* (70ml, £4.95) is available to purchase direct from their online shop here.  A 3 for 2 triple pack is also available, as is a formulation for men.  For more information on the health benefits of using natural deodorants, check out the SkinLikes website.

  4. I really like this too. Took me so long getting used to natural deodorants but this and the citrus one from Weleda both dry straight away on me which I love.

    1. Yeah I know what you mean, I have tried SO many natural deodorants that take a long time to dry and it's really annoying when you're in a rush in the morning. So happy this one is fast-drying! x

  5. sounds good, I'm still stuck on switching out to natural deo, I got fed up of the expense of trying ones & then doesn't work, may be in future I'll get back on the bandwagon, so this one has been added to the list :-)

    1. I've lost count of how much money I've spent trying natural deodorants - it took me a very long time to find the Dr Organic one that works so well for me, and now I have this, I'm more than happy! x
