Around a month ago I decided to switch to an all natural deodorant due to some sensitivity and allergy problems with regular deodorant. I chose Kopari because I just really love all of their products. I also like that it’s made with coconut oil, which I tend to use for everything.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I knew that this would be a big change–no anti-perspirant. This is a big deal, especially when you work out regularly.
My first impression of this deodorant was that it smelled really good–a light, sweet coconut scent. The deodorant application was very smooth. I did notice that in a few hours that my underarms felt a little dry. No problem. I just reapplied. I do not feel like a sweated more or that I had any body odor.
(Towards the end of the first week I did receive an email from Kopari explaining what would happen week by week. This explained a lot.)
I was really starting to question if having raw, itchy armpits was all that bad! I was really missing my old deodorant and felt really self conscious about any odors. I had to reapply quite often and my underarms felt dry, but not itchy. I also wasn’t sure at this point about the coconut fragrance. I felt that my natural smell and the coconut smell really weren’t that symbiotic.
The finish line. I’m really loving this deodorant now. I feel like I am sweating less and really no bad odor. I still reapply at least once daily, twice if working out. No more dry or itchy underarms. I’m still a little worried about shaving and applying, but will probably continue to be cautious.
So the verdict is that I really like this deodorant and am very glad that I switched. I love that I eliminated something that contains chemicals from my daily routine–one step at a time, right. Also, one of the very best things about this deodorant is that it does not get on your clothing. So plus, plus, plus.
I am also glad that I switched in February and not July. I’ll let you know how it does during a hot, Louisiana summer.
