Finding a natural deodorant that actually works is no easy task and I know it to be true, not only because I'm asked that question over and over, but because I have tried many and most do. not. work. They either don't work at all or work for just a few hours and that's just not going to cut it for those of us who don't like permeating the nostrils of others with our B.O. or getting a whiff of our own when there's a breeze.
Back in June, I was sent a package of Miessence products from Ely Organics to put to the test. One item in particular wowed and impressed me after just one use. Here I am two months later, totally thrilled that I've found something that shouldn't be that difficult to find - an 89% organic, 100% roll-on deodorant that stands up to its conventional counterparts. Sure, I still love the Soapwalla Deodorant Cream I found back in March but just as it ran out the Miessence Tahitian Breeze Roll-On Deodorant landed on my doorstep. And could it really be possible that I've been looking for a totally effective natural deodorant for years and I found two amazing ones within just a few months of each other?! Apparently, yes. To my complete surprise, one application in the morning gets me through the entire day. No re-applying, no hint of stench - just odor-killling, natural ingredients that keep me smelling fresh even in the middle of a scorching summer with unbearable humidity. "This is a great product that truly lasts for the whole day" says Summer Rayne-Oaks, eco-model, environmentalist and author of Style, Naturally - The Savvy Shopping Guide To Sustainable Fashion and Beauty. She's absolutely right.
