Well this is embarrassing. I am here today to tell you that I stink. No really. I do. This isn’t some lame attempt for me to try and get some pity compliments or boost my self-esteem. No. Literally, I smell. Really bad. Or that is, I used to.
I still remember the day that my mom so loving pulled me aside and told me that I “was stinky” and needed to start using deodorant. Thanks, Mom! (No really, thank you). Ever since that moment I have been on the search for a deodorant that actually works. I spent years trying different kinds. And let me tell you, it’s been pretty brutal. Nothing actually worked! I would apply my deodorant in the morning, and long before the day was over, I could smell myself. Gross. I still spent so much time being conscious of where my arms were at all times (typically by my side). Not fun. I was constantly afraid that I would be “that person” who emitted a nasty smell into every room I entered.
And let’s talk about that time when all these news reports came out that some deodorants/antiperspirants were directly linked to some cases of breast cancer….that was even worse. My parents (out of the love and concern in their hearts) would only let me buy certain kinds. Yeah, wearing those was even worse than wearing nothing at all. It got so bad that we gave up and I still, prayerfully, wore “the cancer deodorant.” As far as the “clinical” deodorants were concerned, it was like 50/50 if it would even do the job that day. And who wants to spend the extra money on a deodorant that barely works better than the regular kind? Not me. Even if I did find something that I kind of liked, it felt like it would work for a short time and then stop working all of a sudden. Then I was back on the hunt again. I was seriously tired.
Now I do have to admit, about a year ago a found a couple of different natural deodorants that I really liked. But I didn’t love them. I wanted so badly to love them. But it just wasn’t meant to be. It was the same story, they would work for a time, and then stop working again. But at least that cancer thing was out of the picture, right? After using those for almost a year, I was about to give up. Then somebody introduced me to Native Deodorant. You had better believe I looked it up on my phone right then and there and placed my first order. Honestly, I have been a more confident person since! Call me dramatic, but this deodorant has actually, truly been life changing for me. Gone are the days where I have to worry about the way I smell, or keep some back-up deodorant in the car so I can reapply throughout the day, or constantly think about how high my arms are up in the air. Nope. Now I don’t have to worry. I apply in the morning and go. That’s it! The fact that Native is all natural and you can pronounce all of the ingredients in it is a HUGE bonus. I don’t have to worry about that cancer I was talking about. Oh, and have I mentioned that it won’t leave those nasty white deodorant marks on your clothes either? Really. It’s true.
If you’re unsure about that whole life changing part? Have no fear, I am not the only one who has stated these words: Buzzfeed has also dubbed Native Deodorant as life changing. It’s a thing. So if you’re tired of trying all kinds of deodorants, and wanting the hunt to end (mine took around 16 years!) then head on over to their website and place an order. Still not sure? With the discount code lindsay10, you can get 10% off your entire order! Plus, with free shipping, it’s a win win…win. I promise, you will be happy you tried it. Now go on and order that deodorant.
