Today, as promised, I tried out the Only Goodness Inside brand all-natural deodorant from my Vegan Cuts box. I spent a difficult day at work trying not to surreptitiously sniff my armpits. One of my students walked into my room and declared it to be “stinky.” Cue huge bout of paranoia! Turns out it was my half-eaten hummus dip sitting on the desk, thank the lord.
Finally, I got home and could sniff in peace. And, you know what? It worked! This is the first time I’ve had success with a non-aluminum deodorant, and I couldn’t be happier. I wore my regular “Secret” brand deodorant the next day, to compare, and I think I was fresher with the all-natural one. Happy days! This is a switch I’m particularly keen to make given the studies coming out that suggest links between aluminum deodorant and breast cancer. Read more here.
Another big hit from my Vegan Cuts box, which I said I would update you about, was the Derma E microdermabrasion scrub. First off, I apparently have to apologize. I told you it smelled of lemons. I told my hubby it smelled of lemons. To which he promptly replied, “you’re an idiot; that’s smells of limes.” Lemons, limes, what ‘evs. Anyway, it smells yummy, and it works great.
My favorite product is still the Lunatick eyeshadow though!
