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 ok...it 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!
