Juicy Chemistry Bamboo Charcoal, Hemp, Mandarin Deodorant Review


How was your weekend? April is here and so is summer. It has already crossed 35 degrees here. Hos is the weather at your place?

I have stopped using alcohol spray deodorants (I do not even recall the last one I brought!) and stick to roll-ons. Nevertheless, the hunt for something more natural was always on. I was thinking of buying a few products from Juicy Chemistry for a long time. However, when I discovered that they have introduced deodorants, I hit the 'Pay' button. 

Have you seen my Juicy Chemistry haul?

Price: Rs 700. But, the price is on offer (Rs 525) since it was launched.

Texture: Does not feel heavy or sticky. Glides smoothly. Full marks here.

Fragrance: I was hoping it to have a strong citrus smell but it is not the case. The smell is very hard to describe. I will say it smell like Ylang Ylang and Tea Tree - more on the pungent than the pleasing side. Thankfully, the scent does not have much sillage.

Ingredients: Bee’s Wax, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Hemp, Grapeseed, Pomegranate, Vitamin E, Arrowroot Powder, Tapioca Powder, Bamboo Charcoal, Baking Soda, YlangYlang, Lemon, Mandarin, Orange, Grapefruit, Tea Tree, Vetiver, Neroli, Peppermint

These are all names you can pronounce! No funky chemicals here. Zero aluminum. I do not mind if my body absorbs anything from this list. 😊

How natural deodorant works? They do not block sweating nor block pores nor mask your body scent. Your body keeps on detoxifying itself. It only reduces sweat. The main work of natural deodorant is to prevent body odor by neutralizing the BO causing germs.  

And this works! I had zero hopes when I started using it but it works. I was not at all expecting it to prevent BO but it does - even with some hair growth. I have to test it during the insane sweating season but so far so good. Thanks to the peppermint in it, the deo also has a cooling effect. It feels refreshing. It might feel tingly when applied freshly after shaving/waving.

Most of the ingredients are natural antibacterials and antifungals. I do like the formula here. There are two more variants - Lime Peppermint and Grapefruit. I decided on charcoal because we all know how effective it is to draw out toxins. 

But, I have one small issue here. The stick is black in color. So, on the skin, it adds up a shade. It will help to brighten darker armpit (No! I am not supporting whitening!! It is just about matching to your rest of body's skin color) but for now, I might not use it while wearing clothes where my armpits will show.

Overall: I love this idea of natural deodorants. I am happy that I tried this from Juicy Chemistry. I will not repurchase this exact variant because of the color. In case I repurchase this exact one, I will also additionally get the grapefruit one. I sincerely hope they come up with new fragrances. Or even better - a fragrance-free and color-free variant.

Have you tried natural deodorants? Suggestions welcome 😊


PS: Were fooled any pranks yesterday? Remember the time when brands used to come up with unique products just to fool us on April Fool? I think they overdid it this year. I got so bored that decided not to publish this blog yesterday.
