David finally ran out of his old deodorants. I say “finally” because he bought one of those multi-packs from Costco ages ago and it has taken him forever to use them up. The problem was that I couldn’t stand the way they smelled! We are not going to make that mistake again.
Although it is controversial,Â I believe that aluminum in anti-perspirants/deodorants is unhealthy, and I try to avoid parabens as well. I’ll admit I’ve tried many natural and organic brands in search of the perfect deodorant, but I have yet to find one that I am loyal to. Unfortunately, those just don’t work as well. Under normal circumstances, I’ll use a natural version (or none at all – another perk of being a stay-at-home and work-from-home mom), but to be perfectly honest, for those times I want to be extra sure, I do own a container of Degree. I’d like David to have a natural alternative on a day-to-day basis as well, if just to humor me.
At the store, we read labels and sniffed a bunch of options and scents, but frankly they all smelled and looked kinda girlie. The “Dusk” scent was the best of the bunch. David balked at the price, but I was adamant. I’d like him to have a good smelling deodorant for a change. The brand, Herban Cowboy, gave me pause though, but I’m a sucker for packaging. Here’s hoping it actually works. 🙂
