Love Myself Organics Review + Giveaway!
I was recently contacted by Love Myself Organics and asked to try out their line of organic deodorants. Usually I review fitness and food products and while deodorant might seem a bit unrelated, it’s actually not. In fact, if you wanted to you could actually eat this deodorant, that is how pure and nourishing it is.
Okay, you might not want to eat it, but you certainly could. Love Myself Organics explains it like this:
“Our skin is our largest organ and its role is to cover and protect everything inside your body. What we put on our skin should be so pure, organic and considered a ‘real food’ item that if it tasted good, we could eat it. When we eat food, it affects our organs. Your skin is an organ. What you put on your skin should nourish your skin cells.
This is why we created our brand of deodorant with ingredients that you could eat. It probably won’t taste good but knowing that you are blocking body odor with organic and pure ingredients that truly nourishes your skin, this seems pretty darn good.”
Makes sense, right? Your skin absorbs all those nasty chemicals that you put on. We pay attention to the quality of what we eat, how much water we drink so why not what we put on our skin? It’s more important than you realize but I’ll get to that in a minute.
Love Myself Organics makes three different deodorant blends: Long Time, Naked and Forever. Each of them are non-GMO, and free of gluten, artificial coloring, scents, sugar, starch, salt, wheat, yeast, milk and soy. They are also cruelty free and 100% vegan.
I was sent the Naked and Forever to try out. When I first received them and double checked the ingredients I noticed that they contained cacao butter which I have had severe reactions to in the past. Long story short, after patch testing on my arm prior to using I had no reaction whatsoever- maybe it was the chemicals in the other products I used? Food (perhaps deodorant?) for thought. <—See what I did there?
Anyway, to make sure this deodorant really worked, I let my Mom try the Forever since she has an endocrine disorder (as a result of a now removed brain tumor) which causes her to sweat excessively. She was actually told by her doctor that she should be using the least amount of chemical products as possible, especially on her skin so she was the perfect person to test it out!
YES! Absolutely. I have tried at least 3 other “all natural” deodorants including one name brand one and another extremely expensive one that made all these elaborate claims. Neither of them worked for more than a day or two (which was actually the aluminum built up in my skin from the chemical laden deodorant still working). I would sweat profusely still and stink after just a few hours of applying… EW.
Not only did Love Myself Organics work for me but also worked for my Mom who was using prescription strength to avoid soaking the arm pits of her clothing. She could not stop raving about how much she loved Forever and how much better it worked than anything else that she’s tried. What’s even more important to her is that it is SAFE and approved by her doctor- one less thing she has to worry about! I even put the deodorant to the real sweat test after running, working out and not showering the rest of the day (#MomProblems) and it STILL continued to work. I have never been more impressed by something so natural, I kinda wish Love Myself Organics made body wash and hand soap so I could make the natural switch there too.
Overall consensus: I obviously LOVE it, learned that I am not? allergic to cacao butter as previously thought AND this all natural, edible deodorant is STRONG enough for even those who sweat profusely and most importantly is SAFE and chemical free.
