GIVEAWAY and Review: North Coast Organics Deodorant

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Today I am going to tell you about North Coast Organics Deodorant which I was sent 3 pack of travel sizes to review. There are 3 different varieties in the travel pack size that include: "naked", which is the bare product and has no added scents to it; "Revolver", which has a musky scent to it and a scent that I think my husband would most enjoy; and Death by Lavender, which has as you expect a lavender scent to it.

I knew right away that I wanted to try "Death by Lavender" because I strongly prefer a scented deodorant and I love the smell of lavender. I do admit I was skeptical about trying another natural deodorant because as much as I want to use one I have yet to find one that I feel works well for me. So, I tried this deodorant in 3 different activities/ways to give it the best evaluation. I did check out the ingredient list on all of them, here is the list for "Death by Lavender":

Ingredients(Vegan): Coconut Oil*, Carnauba Wax*, Cornstarch*, Baking Soda, and Proprietary Blend of Essential Oils* . *Certified Organic

I know that all of our skins do not respond the same to all ingredients as I have known people who were allergic to aloe, whereas my body loves the use of aloe, but I have had issues with some products with baking soda in before so I proceeded with my review slowly. Also, I was very interested to see what happened it being sticky or smelly after working out or at the end of the day, which had been a problem with other natural deodorants I have tried.

First evaluation - I applied as my re-apply after I worked out. I wore my normal deodorant to my workout but I need to re-apply at some point in the day, so I tried this out to see how it worked. Successful! I loved the smell and did not get sticky or stinky or seem to have any reaction to it.

Second evaluation - I applied on a day when I was not working out and this was applied right after my shower. Successful! Love the scent! It dried nicely on my underarms and I did not get sticky or stinky.

Third evaluation - I applied after a shower and wore to a workout. This attempt was not successful for me. After 30 minutes of working out in Zumba class I started to feel irritation that lasted throughout the rest of my class. After I stopped sweating and cooled down, I did not feel any more irritation. I really feel it has to do with my sensitivity to baking soda and think it would be fine for others. I do want to mention though, that I did not get stinky and as I cooled down I was not sticky either. So, it did pass my stinky/sweaty evaluation.

I will continue to use this deodorant on my non-active days because it did work and I love the lavender scent.

The Death by Lavender scent interests me. I have smelled really good naturally scented lavender and not-so-good smelling natural lavender. Hope this is the good-smelling kind!

Love that you didn't get sticky, that is always something I hate about some deodorants!
