As I mentioned in my post about Burt’s Bees men’s body wash, I’m switching to au naturale. It might be even more important with deodorants and anti-perspirants than with body wash. Although studies are inconclusive, it kinda makes sense that anti-perspirants might not be the best thing for your body. Sweating is how the body naturally gets rid of toxins, and (if you’re anything like me) I get rid of a LOT of toxins through my armpits. LIKE A LOT.
I used to be all about the anti-perspirants to control my seemingly superhero-like ability to sweat. But I’ve decided to err on the side of caution and switch to deodorant instead. While I was pretty concerned (mostly for my coworkers, friends, friends and girlfriend) I thought I’d give it a whirl.
Surprisingly I didn’t smell like ass, and I’m giving the credit to Burt’s Bees. The scent is somewhat citrusy and herby, and it just works. Believe it or not, the awesome scent is actually carried further from my own sweat. The scent of the deodorant lasts throughout the whole day.
Pick it up at your local Nordstrom Rack. I go to the one on 19th and L St.
