I have been on the aluminum-free-deodorant bandwagon for quite a few years now but never found a natural deo as effective as Lavilin. Seriously, this is good stuff! Lavilin promises to keep you smelling fresh for up to 72 hours by eliminating perspiration odor at the source by killing stinky underarm bacteria. Although I haven’t found the deo effect to last for 72 hours i.e. 3 days, each application keeps me odor-free for at least one day and I’m happy with that.
The directions suggest to apply on clean, dry skin and preferably before bedtime for optimal results. However, I just apply it every day after my morning shower and it works for me perfectly all day. It fares very well even on the days I have my Zumba class. After the workout, there’s a faint odor but it’s way better than what I was dealing with before. It is recommended not to be applied immediately after shaving or on irritated skin and I take that precaution even with any other deo.
Bottom line Lavalin is one of the best natural, aluminum-free deodorants I’ve tried so far. The scent is really nice and fresh too! At $16 (+ S&H), it is a bit expensive than the drugstore variety deodorants but I find it to be totally worth the extra cost. You need to try this out if you want to avoid aluminum-based deo formulas. Available at lavilin.com
