You know how I went all crunchy and swapped out our conventional mattress and cleaning products? Well, it’s not like I’d have higher standards for my house than my body, you know? So about two years ago I started the journey of ditching infertility-causing chemical products (you probably don’t want to know this about hair dye) and other unnatural things that we slather on our skins.
The result? No headaches, better skin, and lower toxicity in general. (That part’s harder to prove, but hey, I’m pregnant, and that wasn’t happening before, so I’ll take it!)
Anyway, ranting aside, one of the most beautiful product lines I’ve found is Primally Pure. Not only am I a sucker for their minimalist, modern branding (seriously, check out their Instagram), but the ingredients are crazy top-notch, and they smell better than anything I’ve ever owned.
Because I love it so much, I asked them to partner up for a giveaway, and that starts today! They carry a lot of amazing, relaxing products like bath salts and body butters, but today I’m going to focus on their lip balm and natural deodorant.
First up is a set of two Primally Pure lip balms!
I got to try the creamsicle flavor because it shipped to me with the seal broken, and it is seriously luxurious! It goes on a little thicker than other lip balms I’ve tried, but then it almost magically melts into your lips and feels airless. And with ingredients like beeswax, cocoa butter, and mango butter, it’s really not going to get much better than that! The winner will get to try out their peppermint and grapefruit flavors ($8 Value), and I am totally jealous!
Next up is my favorite Primally Pure product, the sensitive lemongrass deodorant!
Now, if you’re still using conventional deodorant, keep in mind there’s a transition process. You won’t hop to natural deodorant without some detoxing side effects, but I promise they’re all worth it (especially, you know, since conventional deodorant has estrogenic effects and has been linked to cancer in clinical studies. No seriously.) That said, Primally Pure’s deodorant gets rave reviews, and I’m on board with all of them.
I requested the sensitive version of the deodorant for the giveaway because I’m one of those people who gets a rash from baking soda (a popular natural deodorant ingredient) if I use it too many days in a row. So, I use Kiss My Face Liquid Rock Lavender on a daily basis as a “maintenance deodorant,” and then the Primally Pure sensitive deodorant saves my life two or three times a week on special occasions when I know I’ll be moving a lot or around a lot of people.
It makes such a huge difference both in feeling fresh and smelling (if I do say so myself) pretty darn awesome, even when I get sweaty. (The Kiss My Face I’ll have to reapply or even wash my pits and reapply). So, the winner gets a full size tube of the Lemongrass Sensitive Deodorant ($12 Value).
So, which do you want to try? And what other natural lip balm and deodorant products have you tried?
Leave a comment to enter the giveaway, which ends next Friday, March 17th!
** Because I’ll be shipping it myself, I’ll have to be a little nationalistic and only offer this giveaway to people living in the contiguous United States. But you can definitely order from Primally Pure globally or from Hawaii if you’re lucky enough to live there! **
