Deodorant Woes? Try Powdry Deodorant Powder by LUSH

When it comes to being healthy, we are all trying to avoid putting unhealthy things in our body as well as on our bodies. In this quest, it can be difficult to find a deodorant that is free of chemicals we are trying to avoid.

I recently tried Powdry Powder Deodorant by LUSH. Free of talc (which is considered carcinogenic by some cancer watch dog groups), this powder is an absorbent powder made from corn starch and chickpea flour. It is scented with lemon essential oil, juniper and olibanum (frankincense), ultimately it smells a little like walking in a pine forest, which is a scent that I find refreshing.

Although the powder kept me dry, it was very messy to apply. However, since it is a powder you can apply it just about anywhere you sweat, which is a plus. I do think this product is a great alternative to more conventional deodorants, but it will not keep you perfectly dry, especially if you are prone to heavy sweating.

Buy a 1.7 ounce tin directly from LUSH for $7.95.

Lush is awesome--I use their deodorant powders, and while they are a bit of a pain, I feel better using them. I don't like the idea behind anti-perspirants...aren't people supposed to sweat? :)

I love Lush products. However, I would like to point out that applying directly to armpits after shaving them is a big no-no. Lush employee's will even tell you to be careful, their online customer review boards are flecked with the same complaint regarding their deodourants. Even gal's with normal skin (I have consistently good skin) find that if they apply to pits an hour or two after shaving it can burn, itch, and (worst of all) cause big red pimple-looking things all over the area. And, BELIEVE ME, I thought "I'm not usually sensitive to stuff like this, I'll wait a couple hours and it'll be fine". Nuh-uh. It was like raser burn, except the red bumps turned into pimples and stayed for a week. That said, it's awesome for feet and body. Try the Coconut, too!
