I have been using a natural deodorant for a little while now, looking for some more natural alternatives in the first lockdown of 2020, and one that could get delivered straight to my door. I was skeptical, but wanted to find one that did actually work, because there is nothing worse than BO, especially during a heatwave. When it comes to natural deodorant, it has to work, right?
Some natural alternatives for deodorant don’t always stand up against their counterparts. But as more and more people are looking for natural, vegan, cruelty-free, aluminium-free, makers of natural deodorant have certainly stepped up their game. With Fussy you get a case for life and plastic-free refills. Being able to smell good and have a product that is kinder to the planet? Sounds like a win.
I have been trying out the Fussy Deodorant, which I have found to deliver on a range of fronts. Although it might be more than you’d spend on a traditional stick of deodorant or a spray, I think that it is worth it. Not to mention that you hardly have to use any and it still works, so it does last for a while – check out my discount code at the end of the post.
UK brand Fussy launched their plastic-free and refillable deodorant recently, and I have found it to be a game changer. They are also vegan and paraben-free. Unlike a traditional deodorant that works to block your sweat glands, using a natural alternative like Fussy, you can have up to 24 hour protection from the bacteria that causes odour, but you will sweat as you normally would (sweat doesn’t actually smell, BTW, its the bacteria that can cause a bit of a whiff)!
The deodorant sticks that go into your case, which is really simple to open, insert and use, smell great! There are a few different choices you can choose from, including different options like floral, citrus, pine, and minty scents. I have the tropical tonic (lime vibes), and it is subtle but lovely, and has actually been working to keep me smelling fresh. I have been so pleased with how it works. If you have been nervous about going natural because you’re worried you’ll smell, especially in summer, then it is time to think again.
You need to know what you are going to be investing, right? Well, for a refillable deodorant case with two refills, as a one-time purchase, it will set you back £20. You can subscribe to save, getting the case and one refill, for £12, and obviously they will get sent out to you on a specified date. You can also get the case with four refills for £32. I like that there is free delivery, no matter what option you choose, and if you choose the subscription option, you can skip or cancel a delivery at any time. Refills are then £15 for three if you choose a subscription, of £18 for a one-off purchase.
Value for money?
Compared to other natural deodorants that I have used before, this is really competitive and similar priced, so I don’t think the costs are unreasonable. Also, one thing that I have noticed when using natural deodorant is that you need very little of the deodorant itself each day. Not only does it last a long time, but a little swipe under each arm pit will suffice. So in my opinion, each refill does last for quite a while (around five to six weeks a time for me). When you think about it that way, I think that you do get value for money, as it lasts a while, you don’t need to buy a new case each time, and you are getting a quality product.
If you want to save money on your order, then make sure you use my code AAU15 to get 15% off when shopping at Fussy.
Have you ever tried a natural deodorant before? I would recommend Fussy if you’re new to it, no itching or sore armpits, just natural goodness and no bad stench!
