Primal Pit Paste: Review + Giveaway


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.

    I received the Pit Paste in my Jan Beauty Box. I bought 2 jars for me and the hubs. He has never been able to use anything natural that didn’t leave him stinky by the end of the day, except this product. I love it!

  19. tracy

    I’ve been wanting to try this product! Would I share the wealth if I won this Primal Pit Paste prize pack? I’d give the popo powder to my hubby. ;D

  20. Devin

    The Pit Paste sounds amazing! Even if I don’t win the contest, I would probably buy it based on this review.

  30. Jade

    Sharing is caring ;)

  31. Sure, why not! Gotta spread the vegan product love. ;)

  32. My hubby jacked my tub of Primal Pit paste from my Vegan Cuts beauty box. I had the Lemongrass scented one and he made the switch right away. We live in FL and believe you me he can be a smelly man!! No issues AT ALL since he made the switch. He is stink free. And when I finish my regular deodorant tube I will be hopping aboard to the Lavendar. But a free pack would help me blog and review it. Because it rocks!

  33. Candy

    If I won, I wouldn’t be sharing my personal products, nosiree!

  34. Deanna

    This looks like such an interesting product and Lavender scented. Double whammy! Looks awesome!

  40. Emily

    I don’t think I would share these if I won haha. I loved the sample from the beauty box too much to even think about giving it away!

  41. Adrienne Zinn

    I would love to try this deodorant. Yes…I would share. We have a vegan family and my teen daughter is always excited to use vegan products.

  42. Terri Cole

    Nope, this would be all for me!

  43. tori

    I got some a vegan cuts box and its awesome!

  44. Just what I was looking for! I’d been making my own deodorant for ages but I would lv LV to try this one as the reviews on their website are just so praising!

  45. gabrielle

    If I love it, which I’m sure I will, I miiiight share. Probably keep it all for me though!

  46. Tabitha

    If a product really works I’m all for letting other people try it so that they can see how amazing it is for themselves. Okay, so it might be a little awkward to offer the PoPo Powder to people I don’t know super well (they might take it the wrong way haha) but I’d definitely be willing to share it with BF and mom. I know a lot of other people who are constantly on the lookout for healthier versions of deoderant and body moisturizers though so I’d definitely be willing to offer them samples of those products :)

  47. Maria

    I would definitely share it with a coworker that has been wanting a natural deodorant that actually works :)

  48. Beth Stevens

    I’m not vegan but moving toward more natural products. This would be amazing to try

  49. I would totally share with my stinky fiance! ;)

  50. Joanne

    I’m curious about these products and would love to try it out.

  51. Joanne

    I don’t think I’d share these with anyone if I won them :)
