Review – All Natural Deodorant by NorthCoast Organics

4 Dec

Winter is a great time to switch to an all natural deodorant. I know this can seem scary (and stinky) but regular deodorants/antiperspirants have not so healthy ingredients in them. There are products out there that actually work at de-stinky you, it’s just a matter of finding one that works with your body’s chemistry. It’s also good to have a close enough friend who will tell you if you stink.

I personally use Death By Lavender from NorthCoast Organics. Look how cute this is!

The skull is totally why I tried it, not gonna lie.  “An elite assassin of odor you can trust.”

Their line of deodorants include three scents: Revolver [Cedarwood, Cypress and Clary Sage], Naked [unscented] and Death By Lavender [lavender, duh]. All three scents are totally unisex, although Revolver seems to be the most masculine.

Does it work? Will i smell?

First things first, I think it smells amazing! I am super biased though because I love lavender scented things. Revolver also smells great, very natural and kind of woodsy.

The deodorant lasts me all day and keeps me smelling fresh. I will admit, I don’t use it on the weekends if I know i’m going to be at a hot club or dancing around, I am just not that brave. Those nights I use regular, nasty ole Secret.

Remember, this is an deodorant not an antiperspirant so you will sweat a little. Although, since baking soda and corn starch are the main ingredients, it does absorb a good amount of the pit moisture. I even wear it working out and don’t find my pits to sloppy.

As I said before, everyone is different.

The one main draw back to this product is that it doesn’t glide on as softly as regular deodorants and I have heard complaints about it causing some irritation for some people as a result of that.

Where can I buy it?

I found it at Whole Foods. They also sell travel sized so you can try it out, or keep one in your purse or gym bag.

You can also find it online directly from the Chicago-based company: CLICK HERE

Turns out, using coffee in a scrub actually has some benefits other than making your body smell like heaven and your skin feel amazingly smooth.

  • Caffeine has anti-inflammatory properties and also helps to speed the healing of skin wounds.
  • Caffeine typically aids in blood flow which helps prevent varicose veins and cellulite.
  • Caffeine is a natural antioxidant which help reduce age spots and wrinkles

Pro – Tip : Radiant skin on a budget

17 Apr

Ladies, exfoliating your lovely faces is a must in your regular beauty routine. How else do you think we are able to keep our youthful appearances?

Certain friends in the med spa business have told us “Girl, you need to scrub daily!”  And because we listen to anyone in a lab coat, we do.

There are so many products on the market aimed to exfoliate and scrub and promise to reveal a more youthful you. A lot of those products are really good, but the costs add up. Especially if you are looking to do this every day. Also to keep in mind, many drug store scrubs are actually very harsh and can break capillaries causing damage to your skin. Dreadful!

Don’t fret, we found a solution in the form of raw silk!

What it is – MicrodermaMitt $27.00 for 1
