Deodorant vs antiperspirant
I have accepted that sweat is a natural occurrence for your body, just as long as I don't stink which is what this product helps with. It works very well as a DEODORANT. If you are heavily working out or in a very active work day it will need reapplication however it does the job for what it is which is a more natural and healthy deodorant.
A bit of a back story if you are curious: I damaged the skin of my armpit during my teens due to lack of self care and poor hygiene choices. This resulted in my armpit becoming very dark compared to my normal skin colour. As a grew older I took better care of myself but started to use generic antiperspirants and deodorants from drug stores of supermarkets. None of them worked for me in terms of stopping the smell so I found myself constantly changing brands and wasting a lot of money trying to find the perfect one. And even with the improvement in my hygiene, my armpit was still very dark.
I've tried other natural deodorants but they left me with itchy armpits and I did not like the way they applied.
Since I switched to Lavanila deodorant, I've noticed my armpit skin start to heal itself. It feels softer and the skin colour has very slowly lightened up. It seems as if my armpit has finally been able to detox from all those chemicals I've been smearing onto it and able to breathe. I'm only 1 month in and my armpit health has improved significantly. This was a massive and unexpected bonus to not smelling and it has given me a massive confidence boost. Not saying that this product will cure you but this is just personal experience I wanted to share.
In terms of scent for the Sports Luxe, I thought it would be a strong artificial vanilla smell but in fact there is just a tiny hint and smells more like a bar of soap so you pretty much smell like you just came out of the shower. I am very keen to try the other scents now!!
Application wise, it glides on smoothly for me. On colder mornings it just needs a bit of rubbing to warm up in order to glide on smoothly.
Again, it is not a cure-all product, but it works super well as a healthier and natural option. I am now a new loyal customer to this brand.
