A clinical-strength deodorant that is 100 percent natural, safe, and effective. LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant uses beta-glucan technology to effectively fight odor while soothing, conditioning, and strengthening the skin. It goes on clean, with no sticky wetness, and delivers long-lasting, luxurious results.
Lavanila’s Healthy Deodorant line contains several new scents, all of which are said to be paraben-, sulfate-, synthetic dye-, petro-chemical-, and phthalate- free. This review is for the scent Vanilla Blackberry.
This deodorants comes in a cylindrical plastic container with a twist-off top. The bottom of the cylinder twists, allowing you to expose more of the product as you use it up.
This scent smells distinctly of blackberries, with a more subtle scent of vanilla mixed in. The fragrance is very strong without being overwhelming, which provide great deodorizing properties. The scent is also not too sweet or feminine and could almost be considered unisex.
The scent is long-lasting, though it doesn’t counter-act your body’s natural odor as it develops throughout the day, so while the fragrance stays strong, it won’t have the same fresh scent you start with at the beginning of the day.
What I love the most about this deodorant is that it doesn’t contain any alcohol. Most deodorants on the market are alcohol-based. Alcohol temporarily kills odor-causing bacteria but can also be very irritating to your skin. This deodorant is great to use after you’ve shaved and your skin is sensitive or has cuts on it. This deodorant also has a strong, soothing cooling effect on your skin when you first apply it.
The only negative about this product is that it doesn’t go on clear. If you use this deodorant, make sure you’re wearing a shirt that completely covers your underarms or a tank top that doesn’t touch your underarm area. Otherwise, you’ll end up with white marks on your clothing.
