Review | Schmidt's Natural Deodorant

Saturday, August 2

Let me tell you a secret. I never use deodorant. Or anti perspirant. It's just never really bothered me, I've always felt if I got too smelly then I'd just shower, and I can only smell my sweat if I literally lift up my arm and smell my armpit. I've probably had too many polite people around me to tell me otherwise, and I also hate using aerosols, which has played a huge part in me avoiding spray deodorant. So deodorant has never been a part of my daily routine. This is, of course, until I finally got my hand on a pot of Schmidt's Natural Deodorant in this month's Petit Vour box...



Ingredients

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), Maranta Arundinacea (Arrowroot Powder), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Salvia Sclarea (Clary Sage) Essential Oil, Lavendula (Lavender) Essential Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Humulus Lupulus (Hop) Extract

The Deodorant 

Sample Pot Size

For many of you, this will need no introduction. Schmidt's are fast becoming an icon in natural beauty and skincare, having created a natural deodorant from the purest of ingredients. And it works! I may not be the ideal tester of deodorant, having little to compare it to, but last weekend my little pot of Schmidt's accompanied me and my best friend Emily to Secret Garden Party festival. Emily had a can of Sure deodorant/anti-perspirant, and it never left her bag the entire weekend. The first evening I suggested she try some of the Schmidt's deodorant, and since then both of us used it religiously. Our days consisted of recovering and our nights of heavy dancing. We didn't shower from Thursday through to Monday, and I can honestly say that Schmidt's was probably the reason we didn't worry about smelling and didn't feel a desperate need for a shower. It withstood one of the hottest weekends of the year with no showers and plenty of dancing, and it passed with flying colours. I've already ordered Emily a pot, and will be replacing mine before it runs out. 

The deodorant is a firm texture, which softens as you rub it into your skin. I have the Lavender + Sage, which smells beautiful. It eliminates any body odour, instead replacing it with a gentle fragrance that is subtle and not overpowering. I am already a convert to Schmidt's (and deodorant now!) and can't wait to try their other scents. Are there any other natural deodorants that you think are as good as Schmidt's? 

The deodorant retails at $9 (Approximately £5!)

  2. This sounds amazing, as does the Secret Garden Party festival! I've seen other bloggers rave reviews on this too, I currently use one from Etsy but with postage it costs me £10 so its not that cheap!

  7. Thank you for the review!! I have been using Soapwalla for over 2 years now and Iove it, it works like a charm. This one is more affordable, I think I will definitely give it a try! Another one I've been meaning to try was Crunchy Betty's Kokomo Cream Deodorant but it seems she stopped doing it... (https://www.etsy.com/transaction/214478047?ref=shop_review).
