Welcome to new spin on our beloved Things We Slacked posts. We don’t just slack links between each other all day. We also slack about very important topics, such as natural deodorant. So we’ve decided to re-produce some of our most important slack debates as minis for you all! First up, good ‘ol natural deodorant.
Carie: I need help! Specifically I need any and all natural deodorant recs if any of you have them! Clearly no rush needed on this
Carie: ok, duly noted. thank you!
Mary: @Sarah Fischer feel free to chime in on the natural deodorant
Caitlin: I use the spray deodorant in our bathroom here – the Dove. I love it. Well, not that exact one. I bought my own.
Carie: Ok! This is helpful. Thanks, guys. SARAH….I need your thoughts!
Sarah: Hahah wait I’ve tried so many, I’ll get you the names tomorrow, can’t remember off the top of my head but they DO NOT work during the summer :( (Mary can attest to that lol)
Sarah: Also! Malin + Goetz is not all natural!!
Christina: I have used Schmidt’s natural deodorant and agree with the above that it doesn’t always work. But the scents are nice
Carie: I’ve heard really good things about Schmidt’s. I think I’m just going to go to Whole Foods and wing it. They apparently will take anything back that doesn’t work or satisfy. Just an FYI for anyone who doesn’t already know that.
Sarah: Schmidt’s is good, but the texture hurts my armpits. Like it’s not soft.
Sarah: v rough..
Carie: This is such an overwhelming topic. It’s like choosing the right birth control. You never know how the side effects are going to impact you.
Sarah: SO TRUE. I was using a men’s 99% all natural Burts Bees deo that worked pretty well (found it at Whole Foods).
Carie: ah, thats a very good option to consider
Mary: I use Dove. If anyone was wondering.
Vanessa: I was.
Bogdana: @Sarah Native Deodorant has a probiotic base and it’s good
Caitlin: That’s three for Dove!
Sarah: I use Dove now too :(
Caitlin: Should we call Dove?
Vanessa: LOVE DOVE. Tell them I found their new slogan
Sarah: @Bogdana thank youuu I’m going to look into Native Deodorant
Carie: Someone send me the exact dove that Caitlin’s been swiping from the studio bathroom!
Caitlin: I swear I bought my own!
Vanessa: mmmhmm sure
Emily: I use Dove too!
Emily: Just chiming in.
Carie: Where are Jane and Veronica? Maybe they don’t wear any…?
Veronica: I’m here! I just don’t have slack notifications on so I don’t have a panic attack when I see 2374617 new slacks. If I didn’t wear deodorant I wouldn’t have friends. Y’all, Dove’s not natural is it?
Emily: No it’s not. super chemicals
Carie: shit I thought you’d found the unicorn of natural Dove spray
Veronica: To go all the way back, I usually use Malin + Goetz but right now I’m cheating on it with Native. When you switch to natural deodorant you need three months minimum for your body to adjust. It’s a winter time commitment. Like laser hair removal.
Veronica: I brave summer months with natural but always reapply at least twice during the day w/o shame. On the street. In a cab.
Carie: Well, this was fun and so helpful while I eat my sad lunch salad. Thanks, buds!
