My favourite You Tuber is Tati Westbrook (Glam Life Guru) and she talks a lot about natural products as she has a vast knowledge of ingredients in makeup, skincare and body care. One product she mentioned last year was Schmidt's Natural Deodorants, but at the time the products were only available in the US. I recently received an email from a UK PR company stating that Schmidt's was now available in the UK - Hurrah! Would I like to try some of their products? Absolutely!
Schmidt's was creating in 2010 by Jaime Schmidt who set about making a natural deodorant that not only worked but that smelt great too. They prioritised ingredients that are derived from nature when developing their formulas, from activated charcoal to volcanic sands and they look to innovative botanicals and mineral-derived ingredients. The entire Schmidt's range is produced without harming any animals and they are certified vegan and cruelty-free.
The products currently available in the Schmidt's range are Signature Stick Formula Deodorants, Sensitive Stick Formula Deodorants, Tooth+Mouth Paste and Natural Bar Soaps. I was kindly sent two deodorants with the Signature Stick Formula and one of the Natural Bar Soaps. The Schmidt's Signature Stick Formula Deodorant retails at £8.00 each and is available in four different scents. The ones I have here are Rose + Vanilla and Cedarwood + Juniper. Rose + Vanilla combines a heavenly bouquet of rose with hints of sweet, powdery vanilla to create a luxurious and elegant aroma, whereas Cedarwood + Juniper mixes the musky, peppery scent of juniper with the strong and sweet cedarwood edge, giving a warm and woody combination. This formula uses high-quality, effective natural ingredients to help neutralise odour and keep you fresh, naturally. Schmidt's Signature Sticks are free of aluminium, propylene glycol, parabens and phthalates. I found the Deodorant Sticks to be non-greasy and not at all 'wet' once applied to my underarms. They kept me feeling dry all day and the scent lasts throughout the day without being overpowering. The Cedarwood + Juniper scent is definitely my favourite as I love musky, woody fragrances and I think men would really like this one too.
Moving on to the Schmidt's Natural Bar Soaps, they retail at £6.00 each and are currently available in four different scents - Bergamot + Lime, Activated Charcoal, Rose + Vanilla and Cedarwood + Juniper. I have Bergamot + Lime, and I am definitely going to be getting the Deodorant version of this as it smells incredible - the freshness is the perfect morning wake-up call. The Schmidt's Natural Bar Soaps are aromatic, luxurious and full of moisture, and the plant and mineral based formula can be used on both the face and body and include natural exfoliating agents such as vanilla bean, orange peel and volcanic sand. The Soaps are pretty weighty, and will therefore last you quite a long time, and they are free of synthetic foaming agents, so that they create a natural rich, sudsy lather to make your cleaning routine super luxurious. It is obvious that these products are slightly more expensive than products you would find in the supermarkets and drugstores but they contain natural ingredients that are going to benefit you so much more than those cheaper products. As a female, I would much prefer to use natural deodorants rather than ones containing aluminium.
