My Review of Native Deodorant, Body Wash and Soap [Plus Discount Code]
I was recently gifted some products from the brand Native and am super excited to share my thoughts. I received their deodorant, body wash and bar soap and was able to choose which scent I wanted from their five options and went with charcoal, which according to their website is a “fresh mineral scent with citrus undertones and the power of charcoal.” I’ve been using all three products for almost three weeks now and am very happy with all. The best part is that these products are all free of gross, toxic ingredients like aluminum, parabens and sulfates. And reading the ingredients on the back, each is made with a lot of recognizable things like coconut oil, shea butter and tapioca starch.
NATIVE DEODORANT This is the fifth or sixth natural, aluminum-free deodorant that I have tried and I can honestly say this is in my top two or three favs (Kopari and La Vanille are two other great options). I love that this goes on clear and didn’t make me feel sticky or gross like some natural deodorants can. I will say, go light on this. You only need like two swipes under your arms… if you do much more you’re going to feel a lot of product build up. I don’t do much intense workouts, but I’ve worn this all day to work, on walks with my dog in 90+ degree weather and in Pilates class and it kept me feeling and smelling fresh. I liked the Charcoal scent that I got, but I think when I re-purchase this I’d opt for unscented.
If you’ve never tried natural deodorant before, there will be a transition phase as this is just a deodorant and not an antiperspirant. But if you are not using natural deodorant yet, you should really put some thought into it. I’ve written about this before, here if you want to learn more. And if you have tried natural deodorant before, you probably know it takes some experimenting to see which formula works best for your body and lifestyle. But I’d definitely say Native is a great option to try.
NATIVE BODY WASH AND BAR SOAP I love, love, loved the body wash. It lathers up really nicely in the shower and the charcoal scent smelled super clean, fresh and light, but once I rinsed it off it left no noticeable scent on my body, which I prefer. Because it contains coconut oil, it not only cleans but actually moisturizes your skin, too which is always a plus. The bar soap was also really great, and pretty comparable to the body wash. It’s more just personal preference, and I’m usually a body wash girl over soap. But both are great!
