Ever since I was pregnant last year with Luciana I wanted to make the necessary changes and attempt to use all natural products. I wanted to begin first with my body and to be more aware of what I put on it. Recent discoveries have revealed that aluminum in deodorants can be harmful and potentially cause cancer. So I shopped and bought my first aluminum free deodorant Tom’s in lavender. I was initially excited because this would mark the beginning of my all natural journey. However that excitement quickly turned into disgust when it started to cause discoloration, in addition, as it started to become hot, my pits were mustier and more funky as if I haven’t washed them in days. That lavender smell quickly turned on me and started to smell like pure death. I was offended and appalled so I quickly gave up the ghost, abandoned ship and never repurchased that monstrosity again. That experience discouraged me so much that it took me a hot minute to even consider purchasing another aluminum free deodorant. About 9 months passed before I even dared to shop for another one. I did some extensive research and diligently read reviews and decided to purchase Secret Aluminum Free in Lavender. This time, I made sure that this was a 48 hour odor protection, considering that I am mustier than most women, this was important detail to definitely not skip. I tried this one out and it was okay until it was time to exercise and it failed to do what it was supposed to do. Now this specific one was on sale for $4.99, I should have seen that red flag but I thought I was just getting a deal. This time around, I didn’t want to give up just yet so I went back to the store and decided to spend some extra coins to have a better experience with aluminum free deodorants. Being the risk taker that I am, I went back to the same brand of deodorant, however I decided to try the Secret Aluminum Free with pure essential oils in rose and geranium. I am not going to lie, I was a little bit nervous because it said 24 hour protection which was less protection than the other Secret deodorant but despite my doubts I went ahead with the purchase and was a little hopeful because the retail price is $7.99 so I thought it must do something good or it wouldn’t be more pricey as the others. Let me tell you the truth mamas, I don’t regret this purchase at all. No smell, I feel protected and the deodorant smells amazing. It glided on smooth and in addition to it being aluminum free it’s also free from parabens, alcohol and talc which is a major plus. I will never go back to dry sprays or other deodorants with aluminum because this is the truth. I can confidently say that self-care is taking care of your pits with Secret Aluminum Free with pure essential oils deodorant. Mamas, you will not be disappointed!
