Lavanila Healthy Deodorant - Vanilla and Earth

Product provided for review.

Lavanila products are a go-to for anyone looking for more natural options, and their range of healthy deodorants are one of my favorites.  With no parabens, aluminum, or propylene glycol, these deodorants rely on high quality essential oils and an innovative beta-glucan (sourced from oats, barley, and sugar) technology to deliver long-lasting freshness.  The new Elements collection uses specific essential oils to enhance our connection to the elements, and the version I got to try out is the Vanilla + Earth for Balance.  With soft, woody notes of sandalwood, patchouli, and vanilla, this deodorant supposedly enhances focus and concentration.  Essential oils work their magic in mysterious (to me) ways, and while I generally take their health and wellness benefits for granted, there's no denying that most of them smell awesome.  Vanilla is a favorite of mine, and as with most other Lavanila products I have tried, the Vanila + Earth deodorant is brimming with the sweet vanilla goodness, rounded off with the warmer, woody notes.

The deodorant itself has a soft, velvety feel, and it goes on transparent without leaving any white, chalky residue as it dries.  I find the initial fragrance of this deodorant a bit heavy – when I open the lid – but I don't really notice it much after I apply.  I have quite sensitive skin and haven't had any sensitivities with using this deodorant either, and it manages to hold up through the day (moderate activity lifestyle).  People do have varying reactions to essential oils, though, so do check - if possible - before buying.

As someone who goes through a ton of skincare products, it's a relief to know that there are brands out there making an effort to make smarter, safer products, and Lavanila is definitely one of them.  I love how they incorporate essential oils and natural fragrances into their products and their commitment to use safer ingredients.  Next time you are out looking for a healthier alternative to your daily deodorant, do give the Lavanila Vanilla + Earth Healthy deodorant a try!
