Truly's All Natural Deodorant Review

Let me completely honest with you.  I like all-natural products, but when it comes to deodorant, I cannot say that I was totally sold on the idea of using an all natural product.  After all, I don't want to use a deodorant that will fail because it doesn't include aluminum to clog the pores and keep perspiration from coming.  I am not one who sweats a lot, and I have never really had a problem with being smelly, but I don't want to take the chance.  I have believed that I had to have a deodorant with an antiperspirant or I would not be fully protected.  My daughter uses an all-natural deodorant, but she is not even ten yet.  It works fine for her, but me?  I was pretty doubtful.

When I saw the chance to review Truly's All Natural Deodorant, I was pretty hesitant.  Why would I want to use something like this?  It couldn't work the same.  But I went ahead and applied, and to my surprise, I was selected to review it.  The company agreed to send me a free product in exchange for my honest opinion.  So I figured I would give it a try.  What did I have to lose?

Truly's All Natural Deodorant is a product that contains organic coconut oil, powdered sugar (sugar and cornstarch), beeswax, and baking soda.  You can see from the picture above that it comes in a round container.  They have chosen not to put it in a stick form because in higher temperatures, the coconut oil could melt and become pretty messy in a stick form.  I still have to admit that I wish they would put it in a stick form because it wouldn't melt in our cold climate.  But I found that using my fingers to apply the deodorant under my arms worked pretty well after I got used to it.

I have to say that I was amazed at how well this worked.  The real test for me was using this product all day long and going to work out--that is when I sweat a lot.  I fully expected to feel wet under my arms and smell bad.  Neither happened!  I'm sure there was still sweat under there, but I felt dry, and there was no smell!  This stuff worked amazingly well.  It is the perfect natural deodorant for kids, women, and even men, in my opinion.

And if you have sensitive skin, let me fill you on a story that really blew me away.  I do shave under my arms several times a week.  I never use deodorant after shaving.  But I figured I would give this a try.  Right after shaving, I gave this deodorant a try.  And you know what?  I had no pain or burning whatsoever!  This was the experience that truly sold me on this deodorant.

You might wonder how four such simple ingredients could work so well.  Let me explain just a little.  The sugar combines with your perspiration and creates a solution that keeps your body from growing odor-causing bacteria.  You probably already know that baking soda fights odor.  Coconut oil not only gives a pleasing smell to this deodorant, but it inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi.  It is also has moisturizing properties.

So in my humble opinion, I was pretty happy with this deodorant.  It made me think that I should switch to this kind of deodorant, and maybe I don't need that potentially harmful aluminum after all.  I still wish they would put it in stick form, but I certainly makes me rethink my deodorant use.  And by the way--I have only had to reapply once, and I probably could have gotten away without reapplying it--I was just being extra cautious.

So be sure to check out Truly's All Natural Deodorant, and don't forget to like them on facebook. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    1. Yes, I use two fingers, scoop it out, and apply it. I tried a sponge, but I found that it worked better using my fingers.

  8. This is the second review I've seen on this deodorant and now I want to buy it!
