REVIEW: Battle of the eco BO busters
Cross-posted from Hippyshopper and updated.
Being green doesn't mean smelling like a yak. I travel on the tube to work every day and BO in a cramped carriage is torture. Not only that but BO at work is hardly a good career move and, as for your love-life, well, Napoleon might have been a stinky pit fan, but in general it works against you.
I recently decided to road-test two green alternatives to the chemical norm: Holland & Barrett's very own
Earthly Elements 'Herbal Magic' Unscented Deodorant (standard roll-on for £4) and Crystal Spring's Natural Body Deodorant (a crystal stick for £5). Both were purchased at Holland & Barrett's.
The winner was clear all the way through the testing. One worked and the other... well let's just say that on those days I found myself in acres of space.
The winner, by a nose (groan), was Earthly Elements. Plus, despite using it loads of times, for a good month or so, it seems I have hardly used any so it should last for a few more months. Bargain!
Today I bought a natural deodorant (T'eo, pictured to right) from Lush for £3.15 and will let you know how it fares against the champ.
