When I workout I am a sweaty, sweaty mess. My clothes are usually soaked and my hair looks “shower-fresh” (aka soaked!). Sometimes I look around at others while they workout and they’re “glowing”. Literally. They shimmer with little tiny sweat beads and I always think they look so healthy and fresh. I then wring out my ponytail, mop my face and get back to work…dripping my way through my entire workout.
So, when I find a product that is natural and that works? You bet your sweet buns I’m going to tell you about it! Enter Z Natural Life and their vegan-certified (yup, it sure is!) cream gel deodorants! What the what?!
Oh yes…I’m writing a post about deodorant.
I’ve always been very aware of what I’m putting in my body, but just recently I’ve started to think about what I’m putting on my body. I was given this product to try out and although I was hesitant (refer to paragraph one and all the sweating), I thought “Heck yes! Aluminium-free? Natural?” I’m in!”.
And put it to the test I did!
I was registered for a 13.5km wine run and figured it was the perfect time to trial out my new deodorant. As I prepared for the race I used the “Clean” version of the deodorant and thought to myself “Okay…this is going to go really well OR I’m going to need to apologize to my run team and buy them all wine at the end”.
The run was hot, hilly and very sweaty. And the result? Woop! Woop!!! An awesome new deodorant that effectively worked on my sweaty self. I ran for over 3.5 hours (with some wine-tasting in there) and my “smell-test” throughout was negative (no smell). This stuff is strong enough to last all day. I even had my best friend do the smell test on me in the washroom after the run. It was a little embarrassing when another woman walked into the washroom just as she had her nose in my armpit …but hey…all in the name of product testing! It was best friend-approved, as well.
Note: I am, once again, the sweatiest person in this picture! LOL
New deodorants that WORK, are vegan-certified, are aluminium-free (also free of propylene glycol, artificial colors and synthetic fragrances…but let’s not get technical) are exciting for sweaty people like me! I really do love this product.
You can get some for yourself online at www.znaturallife.com. I don’t endorse a lot of products, but this one, Mamas…oh this is a gooder. I’m a HUGE fan. I’m going to run and sweat and workout HARD with confidence that I won’t clear a room. Now that’s a great thing!
