The Easiest Eco Friendly Cheapest Deodorant EVER!

The Easiest Eco Friendly Cheapest Deodorant EVER!

Check the supermarkets and skin stores and there are an abundance of antiperspirants, but not many deodorants. It’s just not healthy to stop the pores from sweating, and it’s not sweat that smells but when bacteria (from stress) mixes with the sweat this is what causes armpit odour.

Do you know what the easiest eco friendly cheapest deodorant ever is? Bicarbonate of soda, or baking soda. However, I must warn you that it may cause skin irritation in some people, but it is absolutely amazing in eliminating any hint of underarm pong.

I’ve tried a few naturally made deodorants by Ben & Anna. The grapefruit one is especially nice.

The Persian lime one is nice too.

To be honest, these deodorant sticks do not last as long as plain old baking soda (which is soooo cheap), but it is certainly nice to know that the armpit can breathe. The skin is designed to breath and not to choke from antiperspirants.

Rubbing a lemon or lime under the armpit is also helpful, although it may leave a sticky residue and takes time to dry.

What is your favourite natural deodorant, or do you stick to the usual antiperspirants?

No Chemicals No Residue NO GUNK 100% Natural Haircare for Men

No Chemicals No Residue NO GUNK 100% Natural Haircare for Men

I’m a girl, but I’ve always been drawn toward men’s haircare products. I used to use American Crew’s Fiber until I discovered that it had a high 8 toxic rating on EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database.

I then discovered a product called NO GUNK, which have a Hair Wax for hair and beards, and a Matte Lava Clay, which I purchased and has a lovely scent. The tub is only small, but they do some other fantastic products too like the natural deodorant called Pit Stop. Unfortunately, the hold of the Matte Lava Clay didn’t provide enough hold for my short but longish hair, which I like to punk up daily.

I’ve instead turned to a product I found on Amazon called Seven Potions Hairstyling Clay. The smell isn’t that great, but the hold is fantastic (even on windy days). Don’t be put off by the price either. The jar is huge and will last well over six months.

Please note, if you click through to the NO GUNK products, you will receive £5 off your product, plus you will also give me £5 off my next purchase. I might try the Pit Stop deodorant next.:) The Seven Potions link is also an affiliate link too.

Taste Good Enough to Eat With Crazy Rumor Lip Balms

Taste Good Enough to Eat With Crazy Rumor Lip Balms

I’ve been a mad fan of Crazy Rumor lip balms for many years, and unfortunately haven’t managed to try all the flavours. The Raspberry Sherbet* and Banana Split* flavours are two of my favourites. My partner loves the Cola lip balm.

They contain quality ingredients and stevia flavourings, and they are so damn moisturising. I used to buy direct from the manufacturer, until their shipping prices became ridiculous.

Get Healthy Soft Skin With Naissance Organic Shea Butter

Get Healthy Soft Skin With Naissance Organic Shea Butter

Naissance Organic Shea Butter is a wonderful versatile product for adults and children. When a small amount is applied to the face, as it is very concentrated, it leaves skin with an immediate healthy glow. Immediate results it gives because it boosts blood flow. Great to use at night for super soft skin in the morning. Dab a small amount under the eyes as an anti-wrinkle treatment.

Naissance organic shea butter is also great on scars, dry skin, and an instant moisture treatment. It leaves skin nourished and baby soft.

Because shea butter increases blood flow to the skin, it is an effective treatment for cellulite. Apply to the thighs and buttocks thoroughly. It’s also a great butter to apply to dry lips. As an overnight hair conditioner, apply onto the hair and wash out the following day.

Great for hair, nails, skin, lips, body, under eyes, dry skin, marks and scars. Prices start from £7.99 for a 250g tub. Naissance organic shea butter whip their shea butter, so it’s super quick and simple to apply to skin. Shea butter has got to be the cheapest anti-aging balm for the face, neck, and under eyes, and it’s non-comedogenic too, so it does not block pores.

I’ve been using shea butter for many years and I get a lot of compliments on my skin, as I stopped wearing foundation about ten years ago. I’m 38 and sometimes I even get asked for ID when I buy alcohol 🙂 I wish I was an ambassador for wonderful natural products like organic shea butter so that these ridiculously priced beauty brands selling skincare for £100s of pounds would go bust. I know that might sound nasty, but who has got the money today to spend £100s per month on skincare? Seriously! I can’t even afford a pension.

Taste Great With Organic Moisturising Lip Balms by Hurraw

Taste Great With Organic Moisturising Lip Balms by Hurraw

If you love your lip balms, as I do, you’ll love the various flavours of Hurraw Lip Balms. One of my favourite flavours is the pitta lip balm*, which contains coconut, lemongrass and peppermint. It’s luxuriously moisturising and tastes gorgeous.

Hurraw lip balms are formulated based on ayurvedic dosha principles. They contain cold pressed organic sesame seed oils, plus organic coconut oil, organic cacao butter, and organic castor oil. Although £4.99 might seem a bit stiff for a lip balm, the ingredients are organic and one lip balm lasts a long time. I’ve also tried the black cherry tinted lip balm*, and vanilla lip balm*. I also recommend the Hurraw licorice lip balm*, which is delicious..
