We have to be honest, when we add a product to our offerings at our Shobha salons the decision is almost usually about 85% selfish (or maybe even closer to 100% selfish) to offer what we do. As a team we’re always looking for the best products with the best ingredients. These types of products are usually really challenging to find so strive to make them available to you (& us).
A couple of years ago we really wanted to convert to natural deodorant. We tried lots. Sometimes we’d stink. Sometimes we’d have weird skin reactions. & then there was the one time that we found the one. That’s when we introduced truly’s natural deodorant to our team & to our clients. The creamy mixture kept us stink free with only a handful of natural ingredients & we have been in love ever since. It was (& still is) a hit .
Fast forward a couple of years & the romance with Truly’s Natural Deodorant is still going strong for most of us but has fizzled out for some. For some (*ahem* present company included) truly’s didn’t play well with our skin. Some of us found out the hard (red-irritated-inflamed-armpit) way that we had a sensitivity to baking soda & had to bid truly’s adieu from our daily routine.
Admittedly so, it was really hard to watch others still in love with Truly’s while for the rest of us we were back to square one looking for love in all the wrong places. We needed a natural deodorant that would keep our pits stink-free & (now the other layer) not irritate our uber sensitive skin. We felt so needy. We tried various baking-soda free formulas or formulas with baking soda that we’d hope would have just the right amount to not irritate our skin. It wasn’t until we found Meow Meow Tweet Baking Soda-Free Deodorant that we could feel completely confident & great about what we were swiping on our underarms. Meow Meow Tweet’s formula does it all without baking soda. You’ll be stink-&- irritation-free with this natural formula. It has a super unisexy light grapefruit scent & comes in a great little jar that you can stash in your carry-on or even you purse. You will love it!!!
The moral of this soap box tale is if you haven’t made the switch from your favorite drugstore brand to natural deodorant yet now is the time & we have two products that will help you do it. If you have a skin sensitivity to baking soda Meow Meow Tweet Baking Soda-Free Deodorant Cream is for you. If you don’t have this skin sensitivity Truly’s Natural Deodorant will work for you. Both are great choices ingredient wise you’ll just have to try on which is better for your skin type. Plus, each tub will last you way longer (like 3+ months if worn daily) than your average drugstore stick & doesn’t leave a crumbly mess in you shirt sleeve.
Both Truly’s Natural Deodorant & Meow Meow Tweet Baking Soda-Free Deodorant Cream are available at all Shobha locations & myshobha.com. Go grab your tub today!
Please note: deodorants are not antiperspirants. Deodorants will neutralize & prevent body odors. Antiperspirants affect odor as well as prevent sweating by affecting the sweat glands. Deodorants do not affect sweat glands & in turn will not prevent sweat. Many antiperspirants contain aluminum which has been linked to cancer. Truly’s natural deodorant & meow meow tweet baking soda free deodorant cream are both deodorants. They are not antiperspirants & do not contain aluminum.
