Weleda Citrus Deodorant

Weleda Citrus Deodorant

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.

Let me know if you have tried this Citrus deodorant from Weleda or any others from Weleda. You can purchase this from Weleda Online or Tesco

    I’ve never used a spray deoderant, does this one have aluminum in it? I’m trying to stay away from anything with aluminum in it :)

    Wow that’s a lot of money! I don’t think I’ll ever be swayed from Dove! xx

      I know what you mean. I pay £1 for my deodorant & it works. I like Sanex & Dove. I find the gentle and they work. Why change?
