Schmidt’s Deoderant Review | A Natural Deodorant That Actually Works!

 schmidt's

As a competitive figure skater, I’ve been on a mission to find an effective natural deodorant for a few years now. I need something that will actually work when I’m exercising for 5-6 hours per day. I’ve experimented with every natural brand on the shelves, but now that I’ve tried Schmidt’s Deodorant, I can finally say, I’ve found the answer to my natural deodorant needs!

This amazing deodorant is vegan, certified cruelty-free, aluminum-free, propylene glycol-free, paraben-free and phthalate-free. With all of those unpleasant things out of the picture, I bet you’re wondering what is actually in it. Schmidt’s Deodorant is made of an impressive list of ingredients including: shea butter, cacao seed butter, and arrowroot powder. This makes the deodorant very moisturizing with a creamy wax-like texture.

Schmidt’s carries five scents:

  • Cedarwood+Juniper
  • Ylang Ylang+Calendula
  • Bergamot+Lime
  • Lavender+Sage
  • Fragrance-Free

I chose to try the Ylang Ylang + Candula. It’s truly lovely – Not too overwhelming, with just the right amount of scent. I hope to try the rest of the scents – they all sound incredible!

To apply the deodorant, I scoop up a pea-size amount of the thick formula with the small, spatula-like applicator that comes in the jar. I rub it between clean fingers to warm up the product so it’s easier to spread onto my skin. This application may be unconventional, but I love it. It really applies well and spreads nicely over the area to block any sort of odor.

This deodorant is, by far, the best natural deodorant I’ve ever tried. I’m able to go through my day completely odor-free, even while exercising! With Schmidt’s Deodorant, I know I’m putting good ingredients onto my body – that are actually going to work!

At last, my search for the perfect natural deodorant is complete – thanks to Schmidt’s!
