The Quest for the PERFECT Deodorant: Crystal Deodorant

Just when I think I no longer smell. 

I do.

I stink.  Part of it is because I have either been pregnant or nursing the past six years.  I don’t know about any of you all, but especially when I nurse my newborn . . . holy cow . . . it makes me sweat. 

(I might add that a little Tony Hornton P90x also makes me perspire!)

So, you better bet that when given the opportunity to use and review Crystal®Deodorant, I jumped at the chance.  Sweet Pea is due to be born in a month!  I gotta have an anti-stink plan in place!  What I thought was working – wasn’t really working.  You know it is bad when your 4-year old tells you that you are a little fragrant.

Time to switch deodorants yet again.  I could eliminate this problem altogether, but I am too granola to allow such an easy solution.  I am ever so picky as to what skin products I allow to touch myself or my family members’ precious skin. 

The reason why I was willing and excited to try this deodorant is because it  contains a list of ingredients that I can understand.  That is a big requirement for a product to enter my home.  I need to know that, Lord willing, what I am using won’t make me die of cancer in a few years. 

For the past couple of days, I have completely switched over to Crystal deodorant, and quite honestly I have been VERY pleased.  We have been outside a lot (which provides good opportunity to perspire) and I have been nesting a great deal in preparation for our little one (also an excellent way to saturate your armpit).

The results have been much better than I hoped.  I don’t stink!  My favorite scent was Crystal essence  Lavender and White Tea Roll-On Deodorant . . . but the bummer was that by the end of the day, I could not smell this scent.  Whereas, the Crystal essence Pomegranate Roll-On Deodorant had a light fragrance the entire day and even when I woke up the next morning!  I have also used the Unscented Crystal Body Deodorant Roll-On.  All have worked equally well
