Alva Naturkosmetik Crystal Deodorant Intensive Roll On - A Review For My Pure

Well over the last week or so it seems as though summer has finally arrived. I have to say I love the sun and the heat it brings to ease my weary muscles, but like all things the increase in heat can have it's downsides. No not sunburn I'm super careful with my SPF's now, I'm talking about sweat, yes it's not one of the most glamorous things or one we even like talking about but it's a fact of life. Due to hair removal and so on my underarms are super sensitive, I tend to buy the same deodorants over and over again without fail previous forays into natural brands have always ended in soreness, itchiness and general disaster. However this month I decided to be brave and pick a deodorant to review for My Pure.

I've tried quite a few products from Alva, before so I thought I'd take the risk and try the Alva Naturkosmetik Crystal Deodorant Intensive Roll On. Free from aluminium and alcohol, as well as paraffin and parabens which can often cause allergies, the key ingredients in this roll on are Himalayan Crystal Salt, and Potassium Alum. These natural minerals help to neutralise odours and prevent wetness.

Described as extremely reliable, but at the same time gentle, it comes in a glass bottle, with a typical plastic roller ball.

The product itself is a clear liquid, despite being advertised a unscented it does contain organic extracts of witch hazel, aloe vera, comfrey, and damask rose, which produce a slight aromatherapy, herbal smell.

The product applied easily without dragging on the skin, it was quite a wet feeling so I did need to wait a few minutes before dressing. On the whole this was a pretty effective deodorant, and I definitely didn't experience an odour whilst using it, not only that but I also didn't experience any white marks on my clothing which is always a plus point. Nor did I experience any stinging or itching even when I applied it soon after hair removal. I have to say I don't perspire a lot under my arms so it you do this may not be as effective and obviously everyones skin is different, but I have to say I really like this, oh and if you prefer a deodorant spray, there is also a pump action spray in the same formulation. Alva Naturkosmetik Crystal Deodorant Intensive Roll On retails at £8.25 for 50ml from My Pure. If you have any questions please leave me a comment x
