The Black Chicken Remedies Axilla Deodorant Paste is a deodorant that I had been wanting to try for ages. It is one of the most recommended deodorants within the natural beauty community due to its sweat and odour protective properties and amazing ingredients. The only ingredients that this product contains are: Shea butter, Coconut oil, Camellia tea oil, Sodium Bicarbonate, Arrowroot, Kaolin Clay, Essential oils of Peppermint, Cajaput, Mandarin, Clove, Rose Geranium, Lime, Lavender and Cedarwood. Most of which are organic certified ingredients.
I will start by saying that this product works and did not disappoint!! It lasts on me for around 6-8 hours which is amazing for an all natural product which has such clean ingredients. Unfortunately not everyone can use bicarbonate of soda on their skin as some people are allergic so we wary of this when purchasing the product.
The scent of this product is very natural and smells like a mixture of gentle florals and turmeric spice. I’m not the best at describing scents, but this one is very light, herbal, and not overpoweringly strong. Artificial scents are one thing that I wasn’t a fan of with conventional deodorants so I am happy to have found one that has a fresh scent, keeps me smelling nice, and that doesn’t over power my senses.
One thing that might put people off from buying this product is the way it is applied to the armpit. It is applied using the fingers and is massaged into the armpit. This can be quite messy but it isn’t unbearable and is fairly easy; it also means that it doesn’t have to dry. As the product is an off-white beige coloured paste it can transfer onto clothes if they have close contact with the armpit whilst getting dress, but this is no different to white conventional products. As I mentioned, the texture is a paste. It is light and soft and easy to apply so for me, this hasn’t been a concern at all.
The price of this product is quite high; especially for a deodorant. This price is £17.00 due to it being made within Australia and also down to the great, organic ingredients. I personally don’t mind spending more money on safe ingredients within a product that honestly works. And I have always been quite the sweaty person. Highly recommend!
So to recap:
- This product is amazing and really works.
- It lasts for 6-8 hours on me personally.
- All natural ingredients that are mostly organic.
- Paste texture applied with fingers so can get messy.
- Transfers onto clothing if not careful.
- Scent is herbal, natural, yet still fresh.
- Some people might be allergic to bicarbonate of soda.
- Price point is quite high but ingredients are high quality.
- Highly recommend this product and I would definitely buy again.
