Healthy Deodrant

Lavanila: The Healthy Deodorant Sport Luxe

I want to share my “Lavanila the Healthy Deodorant Sport Luxe” review with you. Now, I live in Florida. It’s hot and humid here. I sweat a ton, especially at the gym. However, I never want to be stinky. I have tried a LOT of natural deodorants, and the ones that have performed best for me are by Lavanila. Lavanila is known for their all-natural, organic, healthy, cruelty free and vegan products.

Healthy DeodrantOur aluminum-free, Sport Luxe deodorant was created for an active life in motion. Bursting with long-lasting, vanilla breeze freshness, our award winning formula is infused with proprietary SmartSport™ Technology for high performance defense & nourishment.

No aluminum, no parabens, no propylene glycol.

Infused with aloe, goes on sheer, doesn’t stain.

Great for sensitive skin.

I typically use the regular Lavanila Healthy Deodorant in Fresh Vanilla Lemon as my daily deodorant if I’m working from home and not going out in public. It lasts between 6 to 8 hours for me before I need to reapply it. With the Sport Luxe, it covers me for 10 to 12 hours before I need to reapply, which makes me happy. I’ll definitely be using the Sport Luxe from now on.

Ellovi Chamomile Blossom reviewed

I’ve been an avid, die-hard fan of Ellovi since its inception (disclaimer: founder and Ellovi HBIC is my homegirl, so fandom was probs inevitable… but that aside, Butter really IS the sh*t) – SUPER stoked to finally getting around to trying their newest Butter scent Chamomile Blossom.

Chamomile ButterrIf you’re a proponent of all-natural, pure, non-toxic skincare, you’ll love Ellovi’s simple, 6-ingredient formula: mango, coconut, shea, clementine, chamomile, and non-GMO corn starch.

It’s great for those with sensitive skin, eczema or rosacea, too, and it naturally contains SPF 5-10 to boot. And dude, the scent is absolutely exquisite – sweet, relaxing, cheerful, and yummy!
