Review: Schmidt's Natural Deodorant Stick
Great news! The famous Schmidt's Natural Deodorant is now available in a handy stick form. I had originally heard the news over on their Instagram and so, when I found out they were being stocked at A Beautiful World, I was ecstatic.
Schmidt's is most definitely the best natural deodorant I have ever tried but I always had one niggling issue with it. The packaging. Frankly, I just wasn't a fan of the whole rub-in-to-your-armpits situation. Therefore, the new stick form is right up my alley. I was quick to purchase the Bergamot & Lime scent which is my favourite out of the lot. It really lingers throughout the day and the new stick formula successfully held up against a stressful day of exams. I also really love the Lavender & Sage for something a little gentler - I'll be purchasing that one next. I would also say that all of Schmidt's scents are universal so they're great for people who don't like the normal floral-type scents or for sneaking some green beauty into your boyf's routine...
The good thing about Schmidt's is that you can try samples of each scent in a little pot (also sold at A Beautiful World), and these are perfect for travelling or for sneaky top-ups throughout the day. The sample pots are small enough to slip into your handbag but big enough to give you a good couple weeks use.
Schmidt's does contain bicarbonate of soda but I've heard reports that their formula doesn't tend to irritate people with a sensitivity. However, please try a sample to make sure you're not wasting your money! Sensitive to essential oils? Even better news - they also do a fragrance free version.
So, if your switch to natural deods has been hindered by a distaste for unhygienic little pots, definitely give Schmidt's new stick formula a try.
