Smells amazing, feels even better, but might not be for you if... (4 Stars)
If you read the blog with any regularity you know that finding high quality, affordable, and effective eco-friendly solutions for personal care is a passion of mine. That trifecta of desires is always a challenge but the most elusive product to replace traditional ones so far has been a deodorant that I like enough to permanently switch. Since I hit puberty a long, long time ago, I've been a pretty profuse sweater. As in... I spent most of my life up until clinical strength antiperspirants became readily available at the drugstore changing my shirts at midday. I can live with being a wet mess, as I work from home, but smelling like a sack of onions is not my idea of a good time. If I can't stand the smell of me a product isn't right for me.
All that said, I might have needed a full size product to be sure this wasn't perfect for me. I absolutely love the smell. I'm not usually a big vanilla seeker but the combo of vanilla and mint is awesome. The formula is so very gentle which is the main reason I would recommend Bella Organics' Deodorant Creme. My skin is very sensitive and reactive both face and body and my skin loved this creme. I had no adverse reactions to it which is a miracle. I have, however, had to go back to twice a day shirt changes, washing my underarms morning and night and reapplying the creme at bedtime and in the morning... and it's still not enough to fully combat my body odor.
Chances are I would need to use it for several months of detox, as it currently stands at 9 days in I am at the bottom of the sample pot and am not fully sold on it as the right product for me. But, I do feel that if you're looking for a gentle product to try when you've had no luck with other natural/organic products this is one of the best I've tried. It's not sticky, leaves your skin very soft, and smells terrific.
