PitRok Crystal Natural Deodorant Stick
Advantages: Effective and no white marks
Disadvantages: Just the application
I had read a few reviews about this product and needing an every day deodorant which was a bit more natural than my usual products decided to give it a go.
Apparently the Natural Volcanic Alum Stone works as a deodorant by leaving a fine salty, slightly alkaline film on the skin, which inhibits the growth of microbes and so keep the skin fresh and deodorized all day. it keeps the pores free, and does not stain clothing. This is good news having tried plenty of deodorants which leave unpleasant white marks on my clothes.
It seems a bit of a miracle stick because it is supposed to help to control shaving rash and stem bleeding from razor nicks. It can also be used to relieve insect bites although I can't really see myself carrying the stick around.
One of the promises I do like is that it claims to be completely natural with no preservatives, scents colours or alcohol, so for everyday use it seems ideal.
Because it is washed or rinsed before use it is hygienic enough for everybody to use and is suitable for sensitive skin. That said, I haven't seen anyone else in the house use it and prefer to keep my deodorants exclusive to me.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
Ihave the solid stick which comes in a tube with a pull off lid. The crystal itself is completely dry and a kind of grey colour but as expected no smell.
The product stands above the line of the tube but as it is used just has to be pushed up for more of the product to be revealed.
The deodorant should be applied to completely cleaned skin which is still damp. I find this quite tricky as I don't like to apply it after my bath at night. However, for morning application of if skin is dry the product should be dampened with fingertips and then applied. I apply to underarms but it is apparently suitable for feet. It shouldn't be put right under the tap to wet it and whilst there is no explanation for this I think it may be because then the whole product could get too wet and it is best when it is kept dry between applications.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
I have the deodorant stick and it is also available as a spray which I may give a go. It is widely available in supermarkets and chemists and the stick costs around the £3 mark. Tremendous vaue as it lasts for ages.
Mush to my surprise this does work. Once I got used to applying the product it is really easy to use and very effective. It is also very gentle on the skin and even with any cuts doesn't sting or irritate.
Definitely something I would use again although it will be ages before this runs out.
Thanks for reading
