You have probably heard of The Honest Company for many reasons. It offers cleaner, safer, environmentally friendly options of products we all need on a daily basis. Things like household cleaning products and of course the topic of today: personal care products!

Oh and of course it's co-founded by the lovely Jessica Alba! She was inspired by keeping her children safe and healthy and avoiding environmental toxins. This inspired her to want to create toxin-free products for not only her own home, but all of ours too. You should really check out their website as they go into great detail about their ethics and ideals! 

I should also mention she started another brand that focuses solely on makeup called Honest Beauty. I'm not sure if I can get anything from that brand yet since I live in Canada, but as soon as I can I want the eyeshadow trio, the mascara, the magic balm.... and, um, everything?

The Honest Company Honest Deodorant in Bergamot Sage Natural Deodorant

I've been loving this whole "non-conventional" deodorant trend. Natural cream/jar deodorants, liquid deodorants... they have been kicking conventional deodorants to the curb! Especially since many of the ingredients in conventional deodorants are being called into questions regrading their safety for our bodies (especially when used in sensitive area like our underarms and on a daily basis). I have used a cream deodorant (I reviewed Schmidt's Jar Deodorant) and I wanted to try the other option I've seen floating around: natural liquid spray deodorants. Which is why today I have for you the lovely Bergamot Sage Deodorant from The Honest Company! Can you tell I like Bergamot yet?

The scent is great, light but still present. There are three scents to choose from: Bergamot Sage, Lavender Vanilla and Vetiver. They are described as all being unisex and I would agree for this one (since it's the only once I've smelled) that it's not particularity feminine or masculine. It's packed with organic tea tree, witch hazel, lemon, and eucalyptus to keep you smelling fresh by neutralizing odour.

As for the wear of the deodorant for me it does everything a deo should, like keeping me smelling amazing. Keep in mind though that this deodorant (and most natural deodorants) are meant to deodorize but are not designed to be antiperspirant. An antiperspirant will literally help to stop sweating from happening at all, but this really isn't healthy. Your pores should be able to breathe. There's nothing wrong with a little sweat, just as long as you still smell fine!

I started using this deodorant because I'm almost finished my first jar of my Schmidt's deo and wanted to give this one a whirl. I'm happy with both, but so far I think Schmidt's keeps me more dry (which it does say it's supposed to, whereas The Honest Company Deo is considered just a deodorizer).

Anyhow, The Honest Company deodorant is aluminum free and paraben free, two things I know are a main concern for you fellow health-lovers. This is free of anything yucky! The ingredients list is impressive:

Ingredients: Alcohol Denat*, Water/Aqua, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Water*, Polyglyceryl-4 Oleate, Sodium Glutamate, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice*, Monarda Didyma (Bergamot) Oil*, Eucalyptus Globulus (Eucalyptus) Leaf Oil*, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Oil*, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Oil*, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil*, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Oil*, Anthemis Nobilis (Roman Chamomile) Oil*, Calendula Officinalis (Pot Marigold) Flower Extract*, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract*, Glycerin (Vegetable)*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil*

All in all, I'm happy with this prodcut. It's been fun testing multple natural deodorants! I'm just glad nothing has let me down yet. Cause we all want to smell like a fresh summer day.
