Lush T’eo Deodorant!
I read somewhere this is a thing only die hard “lushies” would test. Don’t know about that, all I knew is my cha-chas kept hurting from chemical deodorants and I needed a change.
This week is all about running around for me – which does provide the perfect circumstances to test this stuff to the MAX. ;D Let’s go!
Does look intriguing right? And it smells even more intriguing.. hmmmm…
First time I wore this Hippo’s initial response was “are you wearing soap?”.
It doesn’t smell like soap per se but it does have that intensely fresh zingy smell, which can be explained by the ingredients:
Sodium Bicarbonate , Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid) , Apricot Kernel Oil (Prunus armeniaca) , BlueWax (Specerit Blue C) , Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) , Magnesium Carbonate , Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum) , Juniperberry Oil (Juniperus communis) ,Lemongrass Oil (Cymbopogan flexuosus) , Fresh Grape Juice (Vitis vinifera) , Blue Cornflower Petals (Centaurea cyanus) , Citral, Eugenol , Geraniol , Citronellol , Limonene , Linalool ,Perfume
Juniper berry and lemon grass are the most prominent smells for me!
The back is covered in blue wax to keep it from crumbling all over your dresser.
But how does it work?
Sweat in itself doesn’t smell, it’s the bacteria that did it! All point to them! Evil!
This bar doesn’t keep you from transpiring but it absorbs the moisture, keeps the area disinfected and leaves you with a zesty fresh smell.
The active ingredients include baking soda for its absorbing properties and juniper berry, tea tree & lemongrass to fight the bacteria.
Rub rub rub the bar
And apply to the desired area!
You can apply it straight from the bar but I was told it might harden up the surface, scrape the top off if that happens!
So does it work?
Without a doubt, even when you smell funky already this will turn it around and freshen you up by knocking down the bacteria that were settling in.
But basically it comes down to the fact that you have to be willing to put in the works – bring it with and reapply after about three hours.
As this doesn’t shut off the pores my congas have stopped hurting! I’ll hang onto this for after the shower and on relaxing days.
And for when I just want to smell like a field of ridiculiusly fresh lemony pines.
3/5, it fulfills its purpose! But requires some dedication.
$8.95 for one bar isn’t bad at all though, you barely need any product and i’d honestly repurchase even for the scent.
Because a kick under the booty is sometimes needed. Courage and let’s race through this week together! As fast as possible.
