product reviews: deodorants

Cruelty free skin care? Yes.
Cruelty free makeup? Yes.
Cruelty free deodorant? Now that seems a bit trickier.

I've tried the Crystal route...does this one work for anyone? I've never met a single person.  I'm wet and stinky by the end of a normal day (let alone a work out day!?! Eep!) If you're curious it retails for about $5.00 and is available all over the place.

I tried Lavanila.  The 100% healthy deodorant.  Alright, light scent.  Occasionally by the very end of the day, I may feel a little questionable. My fragrance of choice was Vanilla Lavander...side note: must be a fan of Vanilla.  I purchased from Sephora initially, but it's also available on Amazon; retails for $14.00.

Trader Joe's unscented with cotton fibers.  Affordable and works, but maybe I just prefer the scented route.  Available at Trader Joe's.

In the end I went back to my tried and true deodorant of choice.  It's Donna Karan's Cashmere Mist, and while I sincerely doubt that it is cruelty free (never managed to find a straight up yes/no) and it is on the expensive side ($24.00 a pop) it has never let me down.  Available at Sephora, ULTA, and assorted department stores (in the fragrance section).

I'm still searching for a good cruelty free alternative...if anyone out there has any suggestions please let me know!



  1. Have you tried Tom's?

    Also Donna Karan is owned by Estee Lauder and can be assumed to participate in some form of animal testing. I use this blog a lot for info:

    PETA also says they test, but PETA creeps me out so you can ignore that.

  2. I want to say I tried Tom's a while back, but not recently. I agree with you regarding PETA...they appear to have some pretty extreme whackadoos. I'll check out logicalharmony. Thank you.


Pretty please leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
