While at Sephora a few weeks back, I saw the LAVANILLA deodorant by the checkout line and with rave reviews from many people, I decided to pick up the travel size.

Described as, “an award-winning, aluminum-free deodorant that is 100 percent natural, safe, and effective. Get superior odor protection with this 100 percent natural, freshly scented deodorant. Soothing essential oils blend with beta-glucan technology fight odor effectively while soothing, conditioning, and nourishing the delicate underarm area.

Good odor protection if you’re doing light errands
No white marks left on clothing
Good array of scents
Expensive ($14 for full size)
Doesn’t keep you dry
Doesn’t effectively combat odor if you’re working out
Overall: I have mixed feelings about this deodorant. If you’re doing light errands and aren’t sweating much throughout the day, this deodorant does a good job keeping odor at bay and it smells great. I find that it doesn’t leave behind white marks and it feels like a cooling gel when applied. When it comes to my workouts though, that’s a different story. I do kickboxing 4 times a week and sometimes I do an hour of Zumba prior and unfortunately, I could smell my body odor by the end of my workout. I did reapply but it just smelled like vanilla mixed with BO. So. Not. Pretty. And quite frankly embarrassing. There isn’t any wetness protection either -at least not in my experience. While I wanted to love this deodorant, it just doesn’t cut it for me.
