Review: Faith in Nature Aloe Vera & Chamomile Deodorant

I have been testing three products from Faith in Nature and I previously reviewed one of their hand washes. I've been trying to switch over to natural deodorants with little success and I always resort back to one from the supermarket. The attraction to trying a deodorant from Faith in Nature was I liked the price point (£3.99) and re-fills are available. It is free from aluminum chlorohydrate, parabens and alcohol. I chose Aloe Vera & Chamomile because I know these are gentle ingredients for sensitive skin.

This is a roller ball deodorant so you do end up flapping your arms about waiting for it to dry. I didn't find this too much of a hassle but I must admit it's one of the reasons I prefer aerosols. I think this deodorant wears better on me than Dr Organic. I can go a work day without reapplying and by the time I get home I start to notice my own scent creeping through. I have a desk job and the weather has been cold so I haven't put this through the sweat test. It did survive a vigorous house work session but I can't comment on how it holds up during an aerobics class.

The downside for me is Ammonium alum works best when applied regularly to freshly washed skin. I don't shower every day, for a variety of reasons, so that means doing the "Pommie Wash" (flannel + sink). I will be honest, I have resorted to my nasty aerosol on more than one occasion. I am not sure I can make a permanent commitment to this deodorant.

Even though I'm undecided I would still like to recommend because I know many of my readers are committed to finding "healthy" deodorants.  I certainly think the price point is better than most and the option to refill is something I do not recall being offered by others. 

What do you think? Would you like to give this a try or have you found your perfect natural deodorant?
