Lets be honest, all deodorant is NOT created equal. I'm sorry, it's just a fact. ALSO I still haven't found the perfect deodorant and I have begun to wonder, does such a thing even exist? I mean, I have been playing the DO lottery for over half my life and while there have been some top runners, nothing has yet to win me over.
I used to be a fan of Ban. It is simple, smells good and gets the job done. But then someone told me that I would die because it is toxic so I stopped using it and tried to go natural... au natural... that is not meant for me, it is fine for the French, and while I long to be French I don't have their anatomy so I continued to hunt.
After au natural I thought perhaps something naturally made would be better so I bought Toms deodorant... ok, unless you sweat like one bead of sweat a day that shit isn't going to cut it! I'm sorry if you like it, but I found it to be an absolute waste of my hard earned pennies (but also I refuse to throw it away because maybe one day I will be in a pinch and need to use it).
I then tried the Sauve or is it Degree clinical strength 48 hour deodorant... not that I need that much power, but I figured it couldn't hurt anything. I like it, it smells nice, works well... but I still feared death and then I ran out and meant to get more and forgot. In a panic I thought I would be forced to use the Toms again, then I realized with a sigh of relief, that I am married, my person wears deodorant and he smells good... so maybe I should be one of those women who wears mens DO! I tried it... I thought how nice it might be to not have to buy multiples (sick I know) and just wear the same brand, Old Spice, classic, simple.
A week or two passed and I realized, while I love dressing like a man (ish) I don't really want to smell like one, unless that man is my friend David in which case we wear the same scent so there is nothing to be done (Black Orchid works on everyone, that is all there is to it). So I am back to the drawing board, hunting for a scent, a feel, a product which wont clog my arteries with aluminum and kill me; any suggestions!? I am desperate (though not soo desperate, I am rather liking the Secret pictured above).
