ALAFFIA COCONUT REISHI DEODORANT – LAVENDER & CHARCOAL.
Since a little while I spend so much more attention to ingredients that are in my skin and body care. It looks like, the older I get, the more natural I prefer my products. It is actually so super important to keep an eye on this, and I feel that I am making a great progress here. Let me tell you some more about this new fantastic find!
My sister is actually the one who influenced me here. She is so good in using natural ingredients, walking way ahead of me in regard to natural products. Just a very cool detail about my sister, she got her degree for yin yoga teacher a couple weeks ago, how cool is that? She is an official yin yoga teacher; I am so super proud of her. I really hope that she will open her own yoga studio soon, for all the Dutchies who did not follow a lesson with her yet, please make sure you do. As she is so good in this, and I am just super proud that she is following her dreams.
Ok, let’s move on to the product. As I mentioned before, it might come with age, but I am so much more aware of the products we are using on our body and our skin and that they have a huge impact on our wellbeing. It is funny, because we watch our diet, but we let it slip in other aspects. However, we can not do anything perfect, and let’s take baby steps in the very big world from – naturel as possible. I already made a baby step to a deodorant which is safe, clean and effective. No more sprays for me, today more about the Alafia Deodorant.
The Alaffia Foundation is an organization and their mission is to empower African communities through the advancement of Fair Trade, education, sustainable living and gender equality. It provides a platform for individuals and organizations around the world to partner with Alaffia, by sharing resources, skills, time and money. This public support is very important to Alaffia, and please take my word and read more into this brand, it is absolutely amazing and it will make you even want to buy more from a brand like this. Their work is incredible, I really admire brands like this, amazing.
Let’s talk about the product! To start of with, I am always a spray user, and I usually do not pick the roller deodorant. However, I was super curious and I felt that I needed to try this, so why not. I am not going to lie, I needed to get used to the roller, it is one of those things that usually when I finish my shower in the morning, I spray the deodorant in two seconds under my arms and I carry on. I do feel that the roller is a little bit more work, but we are literally talking about seconds, so I really can’t complain.
The smell; Amazing. I am a huuuuuge lavender lover anyway, I think
that I have this from my mum, she also loves lavender. When I was a little
cheeky child, she always put those little bags filled with lavender in my
cabinet, I think it is fair to say that I had no other choice then just fall in
love with the smell of lavender.
How does it work? I am using this product now for about two weeks, and I do like it. However, some days I do feel that I need a top-up. Let’s say around 4.30pm. The smell is really lovely and it leaves my skin feeling super soft.
This product is completely free from; Synthetic Fragrance, Parabens, Sulfates, Animal Testing, Propanediol, Phthalates, Aluminum, Mineral Oil, Propylene Glycol, Triclosan or Silicone. I can highly recommend this product, the package is great too, which makes it easy to pop in your bag. Yes, I am now switched, for me no other stuff then just natural deodorants.
Please check the website for more information about the brand, and the rest of the products they sell. I promise that it is absolutely worth a visit. https://www.alaffia.com/pages/alaffia-foundation
