First Impression Friday – @FarmacyBeauty Freshen Up All-Natural Deodorant

May 15, 2020

Over the last several months, I have tried to make a more conscious effort to live a healthier life and thought it would be an interesting experiment to see how well my body would react to natural deodorant. I would say that I feel like I sweat more than average and try and get my required physical activity in every day, so I knew I would really be putting to the test the @farmacybeauty Freshen Up All-Natural Deodorant ($15 for 1.7 ounces – that I received in a giveaway!

What it claims:

🔘 This aluminum-free deodorant provides a triple detox

🔘 Clay and other natural ingredients stop toxic buildup, help keep odor in check, and draw out impurities to help absorb sweat

🔘 The cooling formula glides on clear and helps brighten the underarm area

🔘 This product is non-toxic, vegan, and is aluminum- and baking soda-free

🔘 Note that if you’re transitioning from a traditional anti-perspirant/deodorant, your body may go through a brief transition period

My experience:

🔘 I have been using this day and night for three (3) days.

👍🏻 The packaging is nice. I like how securely the cap attaches – very travel friendly.

👍🏻👎🏻 It feels cooling and wet. I don’t mind the cooling (even though sometimes it can feel a little like Icy Hot), but I could do without my armpits feeling so damp.

👍🏻👎🏻 The scent is really pleasant, so I had high hopes that it would combat body odor. In the beginning, it did. However, as the day went along, it had dissipated into nearly nothing.

My verdict?

A reviewer on @sephora’s website said “…it works moderately OK if you’re not stressed and maybe if you have an office job or stay home.” I would have to agree. It worked well enough when I wasn’t moving, but as soon as I did any of my normal daily tasks, it started to misbehave.

I need to know. If you use natural deodorant and have gone through the detox process, what is one you love and what steps do I need to take to ensure the transition goes as well as possible?
