Homemade deodorant rocks my world!
My first big "real day" try (ie: not sitting at home in my jammies) was last Monday. I armed myself with my homemade deo (just in case a reapply was all I needed), a pack of Wet Ones (just in case I needed a pit refresh mid-day, and my normal Dove anti-perspirant (just in case the above products failed and I had to whip out the big guns).
Well, I am here to tell you that I didn't need ANY of my back up products! One application of my homemade deo took me through my ENTIRE day. I biked to work, had some stressful moments and even walked all the way home, and never once did I feel smelly or icky - and believe me, I checked - multiple times!
I went all week and even took a yoga class yesterday using just my homemade stuff - I'm telling you, it's amazing. I do sweat - don't get me wrong - but I don't smell. I made Copain take one for the team and stick his nose in my pit for double verification - he confirmed that I was stink-free. What can I say, the man loves me.
Everyone who I've shared this underarm brilliance with has generally laughed in my face and called me a weirdo (it's okay, I kind of am), but I have sparked some interest out there. My male colleague got a tester pot, compliments of yours truly and he's going to report back after a trial run. Copain tried it with me last weekend and it worked for him too.
I'll be packing it in my suitcase for the US and using my family as guinea pigs (get ready family!) - also, I'm thinking that if I can get through a 10-hour flight stink-free, I'll be 100% sold.
Anyone out there already tried something like this? I'm so curious! Help a weirdo out and report back!
