It’s that time again! “What time is that, PJ?” It’s “too much information about my armpits time”, that’s what! I’m not going to apologize, because I happen to know that all you really want to talk about is natural deodorant. How do I know this? Because every time I tell a new person about my “non-toxic journey” as I’m calling it, I immediately witness a shifty-eyed glance around the room followed up by a nervously whispered question:
“Have you found a good natural deodorant yet?”
I finally have a positive answer: “Yes! Yes, I have and her name is Soapwalla Deodorant Cream and me and my armpits just LOVE her!”
When I was in skincare school, our teacher would cringe when we used the indelicate term “armpits”. “They’re not armpits! They’re underarms!”, she would scold. At the time I begged to differ. They stink, they sweat, and they grow icky hair that has to be removed. They’re armpits. As modern ladies, we torture our poor armpits. This is especially cruel because this area is one of the most sensitive parts of the body. Hot wax, quadruple blade razors, lasers and daily doses of poisonous chemicals like aluminum salts and parabens. Gee, why would I want to change any part of THAT routine? It’s like.. a routine, right?
My poor armpits have had a miserable life, and after years of abuse they’ve grown bumpy and irritated. Surprisingly, I was never a sweaty person. In fact, I’d have to work pretty hard to get my stink on. Yet, somehow when I changed to natural deodorant, I became what is commonly referred to as…a dirty hippie. I suddenly owned a pair of what one reader unaffectionately termed: “swamp pits”. What had happened to my life? I was slinking behind corners sneaking pit-sniffs left and right. I stank. I carried deodorant with me. I still stank. I thought I’d tried them all. From Tom’s of Maine, THE WORST, to the lovely Weleda, what I thought was the best. Sure, spraying myself with alcohol burned
a lot a little, but only for a second! What was a natural beauty blogging girl to do?
Luckily for my armpits, I still had faith that things could be better. Soapwalla was getting a lot of buzz in the natural beauty world, so I placed my first order with Spirit Beauty Lounge. Thank the naked-forest-dancing-deities I did, because I am back to my old, dry, non-smelly self again!
As you can see above, Soapwalla is a deodorant cream. This concept may be new to some of you, but consider this: my armpits can be called underarms now! Think about it. Instead of harsh chemicals, you’re spreading a mixture of organic oils and superfine organic vegetable powders under your arms. That’s a recipe for soft, smooth skin! No more bumpy, irritated armpits here! Just dry, ladylike, underarms. Ahhhh.
This stuff WORKS and it works all day long. It smells fresh and natural upon application, and then you’re dry and worry-free all day! I am so happy I found this wonderful product, I just had to shout it from the Bloggin’-tops!
Have you tried Soapwalla? Did it change your life? Let me know in the comments!
