The best deodorant in the world…ever!

on June 16, 2013

Lush Aromaco deodorantI’m going to let you into a little secret. It’s one of the best kept secrets I know and I’ve only shared it with a few close friends so far. But I think the time has now come to share it with the world. Because it really is too good to keep to myself!

If you’re anything like I was, you still haven’t found the perfect deodorant, right? You want a product that’s effective, that doesn’t leave white marks, that smells nice and that’s naturally chemical-free, right? Well look no further because your search is over!

I can now reveal that the deodorant you’ve been searching for all your life is made by….

… drum roll please…

… Lush! Yes those lovely people making fresh handmade cosmetics have managed to create a deodorant that ticks all the boxes and more! It’s called Aromaco and is made in a big solid block, which gets cut up into chunks or bars, a bit like soap. You just rub it onto your armpits and hey presto – you’re perfectly deodorised!

It has a lovely patchouli smell, which often gets lots of compliments, but it’s delicate enough to not be over powering or overly girlie, in fact I know several men who use this deodorant too.

I find it’s best to keep Aromaco in a sealed container. I used to keep mine in a little cloth bag but it Lush Aromaco deodorant tended to dry out a bit so I now keep it in a little Tupperware pot and it stays perfectly soft and moist. You could also keep it in one of Lush’s own metal tins.

Because it’s a natural product it’s very versatile. Why stop at underarms? You could also try using it on the soles of your feet, inside your shoes, or anywhere that could do with a little freshening up.

Lush is a UK retailer but they have stores all over the world and also deliver internationally so you should be able to get hold of this wonder product wherever you are.

So there you have it – the best kept deodorant secret in the world. I’ve shared it with many of my friends and they’re all complete converts now. Maybe I should be getting commission! I’m keen to know if you love it as much as me, so leave a comment below and let me know how you get on.

    Hmmmm…I’ve tried Lush and agree it’s pretty darn good! Buuuut, I don’t use it regularly because I think Lavilin is better! It’s also a natural alternative that smells really nice (not overwhelming like most traditional deodorants), leaves absolutely no stains on my shirts, and lasts 5 days for me (even in the hot, muggy summers)!

    I’m wondering if you’ve ever tried Lavilin and how you compare it to Lush?

    • Hi Stacy. No, I’ve never heard of Lavilin, but just had a quick look online and see it’s American but you can get it on Amazon. 5 days from one application? That’s impressive! Maybe I’ll check it out next time my Lush deodorant runs out and post a comparison review. Thanks for the heads up, it’s always good to hear of new or different products to try. Hannah x

    Yes, try it Hannah!! I’m sure you’ll love it! 5 days per application – EVERY time! Can’t believe how great it is. Let me know if you end up buying it!

    • Hi Stacy. So I bought some Lavilin and am using it now. I decided to try the roll-on rather than the original cream as it seemed easier to use. The claim is it lasts around 3 days, rather than 5, and I’m amazed to find that it really does work! I do notice I start smelling sometimes but it actually turns out to be my clothes rather than my skin, so once I change clothes it’s fine again. And even washing doesn’t affect it – amazing! I did apply it more frequently during a particularly intense week of yoga practice, but that was more out of fear of stinking out my mat neighbours than anything! I still prefer the smell of the Lush one so I’m undecided as to which I prefer – maybe I’ll alternate them. Thanks again for the recommendation xx
