Best of Summer 2017: The Green Beaver Natural Deodorant Review

Okay, so lets talk deodorant. We all use it but we don't discuss it enough.

I've never been particularly loyal to any brand of deodorant. I picked out a new one basically every time I ran out of the one I used before. I wanted to get into trying a natural deodorant but I had the two basic worries I think most people have when it comes to these kinds of products;
1) Will it really work?
2) Which one should I try?

Luckily for me, I was sent the Natural Deodorant from the Green Beaver Company in a blogger box a little while back, so I didn't have to look too far. I decided to give it a shot, figuring I had nothing to lose.

Okay, but, this stuff is AMAZING. Here's why:

Firstly, Aloe Juice is one of the first ingredients in this deodorant, which means it feels super cooling when you apply it, which is so nice in the summertime!

It's also a clear, gel-like formula, so no need to worry about white marks on your black clothes. Yes, please.

I was a bit worried about the Lavender scent, since I find many lavender scents to border on old-lady smelling, but this one is very refreshing! It's nothing like I've ever used before, and I'm kind of obsessed.

Here's the deal: you will still sweat while using this. It is not (and does not claim to be) and antiperspirant. That's what makes it good for you; it's not clogging up your sweat glands and all that bad stuff. However you won't smell bad, which is what really matters.

Honestly, even though it's not an antiperspirant, I actually found that this product did minimize sweat a little bit. Obviously if you're sitting out in the sun or running a marathon, you wont exactly be bone dry, but I did notice a difference while wearing this compared to when I was not.

The Bottom Line: If you're also looking to make the switch to a natural deodorant, I absolutely recommend this one. I'm actually pretty shocked that I love it so much, and I think (gasp!) for the first time, I'll be repurchasing the exact same deodorant once this one runs out!
