Despite the mass quantities of lovely plants we eat on a daily basis, not all vegans smell pretty. Take me, for example. When the sun shines in Portland, I am either riding my bike, backpacking in the mountains, or walking around in search of the perfect vegan doughnut (or cookie, or brownie, or pizza). Hours later, a sniff or two is all it takes for me to realize that I STINK! Not to worry, because I recently discovered my new favorite deodorant brand, which just might become your new favorite too!
Stinky and unstinky vegans, meet Primal Pit Paste. Thanks to this wonderful company’s generosity, I was sent three products for review: Lavender Deodorant Paste, Lavender Orange Body Whip, and Lavender PoPo Powder–all cruelty-free, non-toxic, and made with simple, good-for-you ingredients—seriously, you could eat them.
I tried the deodorant paste first, and what I love most aside from its effectiveness, is the consistency. It’s smooth, soft, and absorbs easily into delicate underarm skin. I’ve been using it for several weeks now and have found that it keeps me dry. Plus, people aren’t plugging their noses in my presence. That means it works! It comes with a little wooden applicator stick, but I just use my fingers. Shea butter, arrowroot powder, coconut oil, aluminum-free baking soda, and lavender essential oil make up the ingredients.
The body whip is definitely my favorite of the three products. You know how sometimes when you love a product so much you use it all the time? That’s me with this body whip. It’s fluffy, super moisturizing, and smells divine. The container says that it’s for “your bits”, but I have been using it on my elbows, cuticles, and anywhere my skin is dry. It leaves my skin incredibly soft and supple. The container is almost empty already! Sniff.
I honestly wasn’t sure what to do the PoPo Powder at first. The well-designed shaker container proudly states: “Odor Care for Down There” so I figured it would be perfect for patting around down there before or after a workout. And you know what? It was! I also found that it works nicely as a quick-fix deodorant. I love that it’s talc-free, non-GMO, and lightly scented with lavender essential oil.
As you can tell from the above review, I am absolutely delighted with these products. They all smell amazing without being overwhelming, they’re made with pure ingredients, and best of all, they work.
