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.
So it is with this level of skepticism that I set out to try Sukin Organics Deodorant Spray. This aluminium and paraben free deodorant is said to eliminate the bacteria that causes odour without using harsh ingredients. To be honest, I had expected my armpit to smell bad after an hour or so after spraying this on but surprising, this stuff actually works for a good day if I don’t go under the hot sun, provided I spray enough of it. Under the hot sun, I have to say its performance is slightly above average as my armpits do smell a bit after too much perspiration.
But there’s something I dislike about this deodorant. The spraying! I find my armpits dripping wet with this stuff after like 3 to 4 squirts. It’ll be great if they make this into a cream which I can roll on.
So while Sukin Organics Deodorant Spray works to a large extent and smells great with its combination of aroma-therapeutic essential oils of tangerine, mandarin, lavender and vanilla extract, it is not convenient to use. Well, at least for me. So at the moment, I’m really undecided if I will buy this 125ml formula again at S$12.95 over at selected Watson’s.
