I did receive a free sample product in exchange for my honest review.

I have been trying really hard to go more natural lately, So when I was offered to try this all natural deodorant for free I jumped at the chance. To be completely honest, I was a bit skeptical at first. I won't lie I smell horrible without deodorant, and I think because of my anxieties I sweat more than others, I think I smell kind of like an onion, gross I know but have we all stink sometimes lol,

So I try out the Deodorant  Bella Organics sent me not knowing what to expect. Luckily they included a card with the deodorant that explained how things would get worse before they got better. When you first quit using a product such as deodorant your armpits go threw a complete detox. This I didn't know about at all and had they not told me I would have just thought "oh this stuff doesn't work" and then chucked it out. The detox can last 4-15 days, mine lasted about 5. The thing is, I would say do I stink to like my friends or my husband and they would just tell me no. I could definitely smell myself though! and yes during the detox of my armpits I really did stink, like onions and I felt like I was sweating more than usual too. They had a trick in the card they sent saying that if you exfoliated your armpits during the detox it would speed up the process. They recommended just using a loofa, but I used a shower brush lol, I just felt like during this detox time there was no way to get the stink off.

When the detox ended and it does end so don't give up on it if you're new to all natural deodorant, I noticed a lot of things happening. First thing was surprising to me, I haven't really smelled like onions since the detox, even while sweating which before seemed to make the onion smell just worse, now I kind of just smell neutral. There isn't really any overpowering smells either like you would get with "Normal Deodorant". The perfumed type scents, where people can tell you have just applied your deodorant, I got none of that.

The Second thing I noticed was how smooth my armpits felt. I do my normal routine with shaving and such but the felt completely different. I have really sensitive skin, I get razor burn and bumps even when trying to be extremely careful! I don't have them anymore on my armpits at all.

There is only one thing that confuses me a bit about the deodorant. The Mint!  It does leave a cooling sensation much like a muscle rub. Which I usually love, but in the case of it being on my armpit, it's something you have to get used to.

Well, I hope you found my review to be useful I know I got kinda long winded on that one, but it was a first experience for me.

Now for the good stuff

  1. i learned that with a couple more ingredients I could make my own deodorant :)

    1. I have actually already tried hehe, I'm working on perfecting the formula so that it's more of a cream and less of a liquid haha bc my first try was a complete fail. I'm sure I'll get it eventually lol

  2. I learned that there is a detox period you have to go through, interesting!

    1. I know I had it and actually got a little concerned but let me tell you once you are done going through it, at times now I feels like I really don't even need to use deodorant, because I really smell simply neutral.

  3. The fact that it is mint and might tingle my armpit is interesting :)

  4. I didn't know the body detoxes after you stop using deodorant.

  5. I learned that it takes 4-15 days for the body to adjust to natural deodorant


Leave me a comment, I love them :)
