So apparently I have reached an age where there is no such thing as TMI! LOL, yep today I am going to be talking about deodorant. I have struggled with finding a deodorant that works really good at keeping me dry as well as smelling good. I have used all kinds, I even for a while would wear men’s deodorant thinking it would be stronger for my extra moist…EW did I really just say that word, but whatever word I use to describe it sounds just wrong, so let’s just say not so dry pits. I finally just ended up giving up on trying out any new thing because i swear nothing worked. So I would just go back to women’s Secret because it at least smelled good when going on.
Recently I have noticed a weird thing start to happen, I noticed that no matter how much I scrubbed my pits in the shower, they still didn’t feel or smell fresh. It was really getting to me, it also always kind of felt gummy and sticky. Then I started noticing my razors getting extra gunked up with deodorant every time I shaved…which is everyday for this hairy girl. So back to the search I went. When I saw this Lume Deodorant I figured I have nothing to lose. I ordered it online and when I recieved my order I got this email that came along with it.
I am not going to lie, I had used this for a couple days before I actually read this and I was ready to throw it away, because I didn’t feel like it was working at all. In fact it was a pretty rough couple of days, I felt like I stunk sooo bad! But I decided to stick with it. I am now about a week and a half into it and I think it’s working! Yay! I have yet to cut back on the everyday thing, but I am pretty sure I can, I just am so programed to put on deodorant every single day, I keep forgetting to not put it on! But let me tell you, I bought the unscented kind, which means there is no perfumes to cover that BO smell which I was totally afraid of, and yep now at the end of the day I can take a whiff of my pits and not faint! That being said, I think I miss having a “scent” just in case. So next time I will try one of their scents, but I was afraid it would cause me to get headaches and then I would never really try it out long enough to know if it works or not.
So Here’s my honest review of this stuff, I think it works! I think it has solved my gummy armpit issues too. I like that it’s aluminum free and Hypoallergenic. I haven’t used it on any other parts because to be honest with you, I have never really felt like I have an odor problem anywhere else. Maybe I will use this on the bottoms of my feet to see if they will sweat less in shoes? Humm… that could be a game changer! I guess I should give that a whirl sometime. But for now Lume Deodorant, I’ll give it a thumbs UP!!
