GoodForYou: Ursa Major Hoppin` Fresh Deodorant
It's no secret that most of the products we use on our bodies are laden with chemicals. In a conscious effort to incorporate more wholesome brands into my routine, I started swapping out my everyday items for natural ones. Commercial deodorants and antiperspirants especially contain ingredients that can penetrate the skin and accumulate in the body's organs, causing health issues over time.
I found this amazing all-natural brand Ursa Major and they were kind enough to send me their Hoppin Fresh Deodorant! I put the product to the test during the hottest months of the year in New York City to fill you in on everything you need to know.
Look. If you're anything like me, you surround yourself with beautiful things. The clean white and green design makes for a perfect addition to a photo of my travel essentials. Plus, it makes you feel like you're about to use something good for you every time you pick it up.
Feel. When you swipe this on for the first time you feel this amazing cooling, no doubt due to the eucalyptus oil. It is a solid deodorant that with a slight texture that glides on smooth. You can apply a number of layers without it ever turning white or cakey - major key for wearing anything sleeveless or black.
Scent. The blend of eucalyptus, ginger, rosemary and chamomile make for a crisp invigorating smell. Fresh and clean, the scent works well with both your body's natural chemistry and your fragrance of choice.
Performance. When you inevitably do start to sweat the hops and eucalyptus get to work fighting odor-causing bacteria while the kaolin clay neutralizes any potential funk. I've worn this deodorant through Fourth of July festivities, on first dates, traveling, and while working out. Apply it to clean dry skin for a solid 8-12 hours of freshness.
Doing what's best for your body is a major step on the road to #LiveYaBestLife. Natural deodorant may sound scary at first but chronic issues in the future are... scarier. The goal is not to stop sweating but to be more confident and smell better when you do - this product does exactly that!
