Last week I made a spontaneous purchase over at Vegan Cuts and shortly thereafter my product arrived… and it was the best spontaneous purchase, ever! I love it so much that I figured I’d share it all with you!
Let me break it down for you: Vegan Cuts is the place where I purchased the product. This vegan marketplace is where I also purchased my scoby kit for brewing kombucha and where my monthly vegan Snack Box comes from (yes, I’ve received March’s box and yes, I’m a little behind sharing it). This is also the site where you can find some of the beau’s veggie-esk products, including the avocado tee and radish print. Overall, they are a super rad duo bringing all kinds of goodies from all over the nation to one website for your viewing and ordering pleasure.
And what product did I order you may ask? The deodorant cream from Meow Meow Tweet. I missed the discount that the site was offering a few months ago but I kept it in the back of my head as a “product I may just have to purchase if things get any worse.” And things did get worse.
See, I haven’t worn deodorant now for about five years. The short story why is that almost all deodorants on the market have parabens and other harmful chemicals that have been known to seep into our bodies. Being a woman who shaves her armpits, I put myself at an even higher risk of this seepage because I essentially create small cuts into my body’s outer-most layer of protection. I just want to take as many preventative steps as possible. Easy right?
Wrong! Not wearing deodorant is the easy part, finding a substitute is the difficult task. I have tried probably 8-10 all natural, organic, and/or non-chemical containing deodorants that just haven’t worked. I’ve tried roll-ons and I’ve tried the bars. Nothing. Until the summer of 2010 when I discovered the Crystal Stick and shared about it here. It has worked great over the past two years or so but recently I noticed that it just wasn’t doing it’s job as it once had. I don’t know if it is because I’ve changed my diet and starting to get back into the workout groove, but I found that I had to shower everyday just because of this issue. (Yes, you read that correctly, I don’t shower every day nor do I have the desire to. But that’s a whole other post.)
Time travel back to last week when this product entered my life. Utopia on Earth. It not only lasted me throughout the day, but through the move.
What I like about Meow Meow Tweet’s cream:
- smells so good! I chose the tea tree scent because tea tree naturally has major antimicrobial effects
- the scent doesn’t last all day = not overwhelming
- not only helps with oder, but is moisturizing
- doesn’t seem to stain clothing or leave white marks as the typical deodorant would
- it even holds up while working out
I love it and can’t wait to try other products from this small business out of Brooklyn. No, this wasn’t a paid post. Yes, you can thank me later.
