In the world of natural, vegan deodorants, we actually have quite a few options to choose from. These days you don’t have to settle on the one brand that’s available locally – there are over 10 brands that I currently know of, most of which actually work too. Not all natural products work as effectively, but today I am so pleased to share one from a brand called Stinkbug Naturals. It actually works!
While the name may fool you into second guessing it’s ability to fight odor, it’s without a doubt one of a very select few deodorants I’ve used, that truly works. I’m also a huge fan of the scents, most companies stick to traditional ones and Stinkbug is changing up the game. Their two vegan and cruelty-free deodorant cream options include; Tangerine Spice & Floral Lime. Of the two, I’m partial to the Tangerine Spice. It basically makes my underarms smell like Christmas and I honestly love it. If you’re not a fan of cinnamon and orange, you might want to avoid this one. The Floral Lime is milder in scent, I’m very happy with them both. Hopefully Stinkbug releases a few more options, something unscented and another with more herbal tones would be perfect!
These two products are both aluminum-free, they do not contain any genetically modified ingredients. They also aim to those needing something “extra strength”, I’m not ashamed to say that totally includes me. I’ve always had a issue finding products that help, even before going vegan. Now it’s much better and natural products have been working more effectively than ever!
I love that they’re moisturizing without feeling overly greasy or gritty, like others I’ve sampled. You do have to manually rub these into your skin, with your fingers, but I find it much more hygienic than the traditional sticks. It stays cleaner if you’re washing your hands before and after applying.
Overall, I would highly recommend these two deodorant creams from Stinkbug Naturals. I’ve been using them both regularly, for the past 3 weeks now and each day they work perfectly. No need to reapply throughout the day and zero irritation on my sensitive skin. Definitely give them a try if you’re in the market for a curelty-free, vegan alternative. In general, you might be surprised by their quality compared to what you’re using now. Make sure you’re not using a aluminum-based formula, do some outside research on the negative effects it can have on your body. Switching to a natural formulation has done wonders for me!
Stinkbug Naturals contacted me through Instagram and I’m very happy they did. I keep transparency with my readers/followers so I want you all to know when I’m sent something for review. However, please know that if I take the time to share it – that means I 100% stand by the product(s) and my views align with the company I am promoting.
