Nature’s Gate Organics Deodorant

421000698 50c4d41641 m Natures Gate Organics DeodorantI was really excited to find Nature’s Gate Organics Deodorant on the shelves at the pharmacy.   

This is a 70% certified organic vegan formula that is  not only hypoallergenic but contains no parabens, no propylene glycol and no aluminum chlorohydrate.  At the price of S$10.90, this is definitely worth a buy if it works. 

And I’m happy to say that it does…for awhile at least!  

I bought the lemongrass and clary sage deodorant stick and to be honest, was skeptical that its totally natural botanical ingredients can get rid of my armpit odour.  But it does!  My underarms were kept almost fresh after a few hours of usage indoors.  Not bad!

If you have unsightly dark undereye circles, you may wish to check out My darkcirclesblog which focuses exclusively on information regarding eye creams, home remedies or treatments and formulas that reduce those unsightly circles.  

Iry, the writer, who has been suffering from the same problem herself since young, recently made some recommendations on her blog of the eye creams that have been effective in helping other users reduce those panda eyes.  These include:

  • Arbonne Nutrimin C RE9 Repair Corrective Eye Creme

Burt’s Bees Beewax Lip Balm

416326550 5eb6ebe639 t Burts Bees Beewax Lip BalmYay!  I actually found Burt’s Bees Beewax Lip Balm at a shop in Singapore!  Thanks to a tip from a reader by the nick of eyong who left a comment in my earlier entry.

Instead of the usual tube, I got the tin instead because I like the size and the novelty.  But perhaps that’s a mistake because I later found the application a tad difficult because this stuff isn’t exactly rich.  And gosh, it left quite a tingling sensation on my lips because of its peppermint content.   

Inexpensive effective anti-perspirant

414987471 8f0c6bbf43 m Inexpensive effective anti perspirantIf you’re looking for an inexpensive but effective anti-perspirant, I would recommend Marks and Spencer Lavender Anti-Perspirant Roll-On under the Floral Collection.

This is a delicately fragranced alcohol free anti perspirant roll-on specially formulated to reduce stinging.  I’ve been using this deodorant for a few years and have been rather happy with it, in the absence of an effective alternative.  It really works, keeping me smelling quite fresh for hours.
