Happy Friday lovelies!
I’m back with another review. I posted a pic on the ‘gram showing off my latest clean beauty find – Schmidt’s Tea Tree Sensitive Skin Deodorant Stick. A couple weeks back I ran out of my natural deodorant and used my guy’s brand for two days out of desperation. Big mistake. My pits turned black and began to peel, and were easily irritated by the friction of my clothing.
I purchased this formula in-store, and in only a few days my armpits were happy again. This aluminum-free formula keeps me dry and odor-free for the entire day and feels comfortable when applying (certain natural deodorants are a bit abrasive). The discoloration faded, and my pits are pain-free again.
Tea tree oil is used topically for acne, fungal nail infections, lice, ringworm, and athlete’s foot. Tea tree oil is antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral, and well known for its use as a natural remedy for scars. Mix a few drops of tea tree oil with a skin-friendly carrier oil like jojoba to reap the benefits for yourself.
I’m a fan. The only drawback is the formula is very visible (white) on the skin. It doesn’t stain my clothing or clump, but for those wanting a clear formula – this isn’t it.
Natural deodorant is still quite a hot topic in the green beauty world.
What’s your go-to brand?
