Since i have been trying to eat more clean and working out again, i've become more conscious of what i put on my skin as well as what goes in and trying to use more natural products. Deodorant is something i never really thought about going natural with. I never thought about what was in it, if it had parabens etc. I just put it on and hoped it worked.
Bionsen Roll-On Deodorant RRP £2.29 & Pump Spray Deodorant RRP £2.79
Bionsen kindly sent me these aluminium and paraben free deodorants to review and this is when i realised deodorant is probably one of the products that should natural. We have them on one of the most sensitive parts of our skin all day everyday.
Here's what Bionsen say about them;
"Bionsen is specially formulated to be naturally protective. Using natural minerals, Bionsen effectively neutralises the bacteria responsible for bad odours, and it keeps them at bay all day long. Bionsen is a deodorant, so it doesn’t stop your body from sweating like an anti-perspirant sweating is a natural cooling and detoxifying process needed to keep the body healthy. Bionsen simply prevents bacteria from growing and is as effective at neutralising body odours as the leading brands."
The main selling points of these for me are;
-Hypoallergenic/Great for sensitive skin,
-Contains spa minerals,
They smell great, like a cross between baby powder and a normal 'fresh' deodorant and they do the job. I applied this after shaving and it didn't sting or cause any reaction so i can safely say they are good for sensitive skin! I also think they are well priced, usually natural products tend to be more expensive but these are slightly cheaper than some regular brands.
Bionsen have a bigger range of deodorants including a spray, deodorant stick and a crystal deodorant which you can view here. They are currently available at Boots, Superdrug, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrisons.
