This was in my #LiveBloggers goody bag from the event back in September. I have been using it since the day I got it. I was excited to see it in our bags and I’ve used a few things from the Weleda Brand. The first thing I noticed was the weight of the product. It was really heavy, it’s a glass bottle which Weleda say is reusable – a great idea. You do get 100ml of product and I’ve been using it for well over a month and hardly used any. It will last a good couple of months. I wanted to use this product for at least 6 weeks before reviewing it as I know that products can take a while to start working or for you to see any diference.
I was excited to really test this product out as I’d like to find a good natural deodorant I know I worry about what chemicals I’m using on my underarms. With that area being particularly sensitive. This deodorant has a really lovely Citrus scent, it’s very fresh and pleasant It is a scent that I really liked. Athough strong when you first put this on the Citrus doesn’t linger too long and it isn’t overpowering so wont interfere with your perfume.
I did notice that when I put this on after shaving it stung quite bad & I’m guessing this was due to the alcohol in it. So that was slightly unpleasant. I would say that I sweat an average amount. Nothing to crazy but I do like to feel like I can trust my deodorant and this Weleda one wasn’t great for me. I only apply it in the morning as it’s too heavy / bulky to take with you on the go to reapply. But by mid afternoon I would feel like I needed a top up and was self conscious that I didn’t have it with me to do that. I’ve been testing this in the colder months and so I tend not to get too hot and sweaty during Autumn/Winter and with this not really standing up during these months I wouldn’t feel comfortable using it in the summer for fear of being a sweaty betty.
As I work from home I will use it on the days I will be in the house as I want to use it up (hate to waste anything). I felt a little disappointed in this products as I wanted to like it & I do like the smell & think if you’re someone who doesn’t sweat very much then is for you. But I need a little more than this deodorant can give. For the price £8.50 it didn’t work well enough for me to repurchase.
