I received a sample of the John Varvatos Eau De Parfum in my mail last week and I was immediately struck by the pretty pink color of the perfume and the lovely shape of the bottle. I don’t use fragrance frequently but I have been buying them on a regular basis for my mum who loves them. Apart from the scent, I’ll buy the perfume if the packaging appeals to me because I think a beautiful bottle and an enticing color makes a wonderful gift and will somehow enhance the whole user experience.
I have tried a few organic or botannical anti-perspirants and deodorants but they usually do not have good staying power. In plain English, they suck. Sukin Organics Deodorant which I reviewed recently performed better but fared badly in terms of usage. So I was really skeptical about Nature’s Gate Organics Fruit Blends Deodorant which was mentioned in Health.com as an organic deodorant that work and leave you smelling sweet.
But girls, they’re right. This deodorant rub on stick which is paraben-free with no aluminum but contains only 100% natural and 70% certified organic, vegetable-derived ingredients does work!
Even if the claims of antiperspirants and deodorants causing breast cancer maybe over-exaggerated, I have always wanted to use one that does not contain aluminum or parabens. However, it’s not easy to find one that really works. While we’ve heard all the good things about organic or botanical skincare products, how well they work to get rid of underarm odour is another question.
When I first used Sukin Organic Botanical Body Wash, I wasn’t wowed by it. While it had a refreshing smell, but I found it less than intoxicating enough for me. However, this body wash gets better with each bath.
I actually grew to love the enriched aromatic botanicals aroma, a combination of tangerine, mandarin, lavender and vanilla extract therapeutic oils. And if we compare the price of this vs other organic or botanical body wash, this is definitely worth the price tag.
