Weekly beauty product post featuring Lavanila

Hi guys, so I decided that I’m going to start incorporating weekly posts about products that I absolutely love and why I love them. So I am starting with Lavanila Deodorant.  The cost was about $14.00 on amazon and it was on amazon prime so I paid $0.00 for shipping!  I bought the lavender vanilla scent.

Okay, so I know you’re thinking why is she featuring deodorant as a beauty product?? Well, here’s why… In my experience with deodorant and antiperspirants, they have done nothing to help my body except make me smell nice.  Is the price of smelling nice worth horrible skin problems? Not, no it’s not.  I would get dry skin on my upper arms and on the sides around the chest area all caused by deodorant.. But I never put two and two together, so I just thought I had really bad dry skin FOR YEARS.  I kept switching deodorants but still had dry skin.  I tried a million different skin care products and even coconut oil (which worked for everything but this area of dry skin).  So a few weeks ago, I decided that I would try a natural deodorant or as close to natural as I could find.  

This brand has pretty good reviews on all sites that I’ve visited.  The product works, but does require more than application throughout the day, it smells great, and my dry skin has cleared up! Overall, this deodorant has been able to handle my daily activity which sometimes means an hour at the gym.  

Have you guys tried any natural deodorants?? What are your thoughts?

So I’m copying this off sephora to give you guys a clear picture of what Lavanila is:
