I’ve been known to sweat like a man, so naturally I jumped at the chance to try Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal’s Spray Mist when they emailed me recently with an opportunity to do just that. Today my armpits and I will be sharing our thoughts on the mist.
Ingredients (provided on product’s label)- “Aqua (Purified Water), Natural Mineral Salts (Potassium Alum).”
1. It’s free of parabens, synthetic fragrances/perfumes, phenoxyethanol, and processed aluminum (i.e. aluminum zirconium and aluminum chlorhydrate—they clog pores and can enter our bloodstream).
2. It’s cruelty-free.
3. It comes in a convenient spray bottle. Unfortunately, I dropped mine/broke the spray nozzle and had to transfer the deodorant into a glass spray bottle I had lying around (pictured above), but it still works just fine.
Product Description(provided at natfreshdeo.com)- “The liquid version of our natural crystal body deodorant spray. Simply, purified water and pharmaceutical grade mineral salts. Highly recommended by doctors–oncologists, dermatologists, and allergists. 100% pure and natural, hypoallergenic, 24 hour protection, and fragrance free. Extremely gently yet amazingly effective natural crystal body deodorant spray.”
Price-only $3.99 for a 4 fl oz bottle.
Performance– If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, then you probably already know that my armpits are not the easiest to please. Some deodorants work well for a month or two and then suddenly stop, and most never work in the first place. Others work consistently but leave an unsightly rash. Still, I’ve been using this deodorant for a few weeks and so far, so good! This product prevents odors for hours at a time without breaking me out, and with a midday reapplication I can successfully make it through the day without the slightest hint of body odor. I’ll let you guys know if the performance suddenly changes, but for now I’m sold!
Scent– Is the absence of body odor a scent? Let’s go with that.
Rating– Because I’ve yet to meet a deodorant that works miracles in the all day protection department (without having to reapply, that is), I’ll subtract half a point. Still, this product’s ingredients, price, and still impressive performance earn it a 9.5/10.
Would I purchase this item again? Absolutely!
