Best Summer Beauty Buys:: Black Chicken Axilla Natural Deodorant Paste

It may sound weird, but this deodorant paste is a total winner. Otherwise I wouldn't tell you about it. 

When I was first asked to try it out, I was dubious. I didn't want to have to apply a paste. But after two weeks of trialling it, I have to say - it's awesome. 

It's 100% natural from certified organic ingredients, made in Australia - and chemical free (aluminium, alcohol, petrochemicals, fragrance, phthalates, talc and parabens) - which means it's free from all the bad stuff we apply to our underarms almost religiously. 

Invisible after application, you just take a pea-sized amount, apply it under your arms - et voila! 

Really, I didn't think this was going to stand the test - but it lasts all day, and smells really, really good (kind of like old-fashioned cola lollies). For the ultimate test, I asked Matt to try it out - the results are in - it's even man-proof! 

It lets your body dispel toxins while keeping you fresh. 

How does it work? I know it sounds too good to be true, but the Kolin Clay and Arrowroot work together to absorb moisture while the Sodium Bicarbonate neutralises odour - and the shea butter moisturises and helps for easy application. Couple this with essential oils of Peppermint, Mandarin, Lime, Geranium (my favourite), Cajaput, Clove and Lavender - for their antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-stink and antiseptic properties, and you've got yourself a real game changer. 

Disclosure:: This product was sent to me for review and editorial consideration. I considered it. Tried it. And loved it. I thought you might like it too! This is not a sponsored post.

Hey Lexi, thanks for this review! I've got a severe allergy to Aluminium (can't even drink beer from cans for shame) so most commercially deodorants are off the list. I've found that paste/solid deodorants tend to leave residue on clothes that is an absolute nightmare to wash off. Does this one leave a nasty residue? Fanks dude!

I've been using it for a few months, bought it for all my besties for Christmas and it does NOT leave marks on clothing. Very happy with it. I also picked up a very tiny spoon whilst shopping in Leura which digs a portion out just nicely.

Sounds interesting BUT please please please do not use the term " chemical free" - everything is made of chemicals, water is h2o, made of chemicals hydrogen and oxygen; we breathe air ( oxygen, nitrogen & others). Sodium Bicarbonate is one of the listed ingredients! " toxic" or "petro chemicals" might be better terms. Chemicals get a bad rap which doesn't help when you are trying to teach kids science at school!
