Advantages: Smells great, has a softening effect on the skin and can be used all over your body.
Disadvantages: Leaves white dust marks on black clothes.
Lush produce 5 different solid deodorants, the one I am going to review is called Aromacreme.
Aromacreme is sold in 100g pieces which come in little plastic pots. 100g costs £4.95.
Aromacreme is a beige type colour and has speckles throughout it, it is quite soft and can easily be squeezed between your fingers and a little piece broken off which you then rub around the armpit or other smelly area! I do not suggest trying to rub a large piece on as when I first used it this is how I tried to apply it and it all broke to pieces.
The photo here on Dooyoo is not actually Aromacreme, it is Aromaco, so this is not what the product I am reviewing looks like !
As you apply Aromacreme it starts to melt slightly and turns into a powder which can be spread quite evenly. There is a powdery residue left so this can not really be used is you are wearing black as it will leave white marks.
This deodorant is really good for using over the whole of your body and it does not leave any sticky mess behind like a roll on deodorant does.
This has a really lovely scent; it smells very fruity and works really well at keeping you smelling clean and fresh. I apply this in the morning after a shower (you need to make sure you are well dried or it will turn sticky) and it keeps me smelling sweet all day, on hot nights I also re-apply this before going to bed. This does not cover smells, but works very well at keeping smells away.
I think this also has moisturising effects because I am sure that since I started using this my armpits have been smoother.
The ingredients in Aromacreme as advertised on the Lush website are -
Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii)
Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis)
Lychees (Litchi chinensis)
Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata)
Cassie Absolute (Acacia farnesiana)
I have also tried the Aromaco deodorant from Lush and I have found that I much prefer this one because it leaves no wet feeling and has a nicer fragrance, the butter and oils in this make it truly lovely and whilst it is more than I am used to spending on a deodorant it is worth every penny (as long as I remember not to wear it when I am wearing black!).
I have given this 4 out of 5 stars because it is a fab product and the only area in which it is lacking is the white marks it can leave.
Summary: A lovel alternative to a roll on deodorant.
