PRODUCT REVIEW: LaVanila, The Healthy Deodorant
As a twenty-something, one of the things that I’m most conscious of is the big C. Yep, you guessed it: CANCER. In a world where cancer is all around us, Breast Cancer targets women as its prey and affects our assets. Since that awkward 5th grade health seminar about “growing up”, we chicks are constantly hearing that we need to check our boobs in the shower, feel for lumps, go to regular ob-gyn visits, eat healthy, exercise, blah blah blah. After taking all of these precautions over the years, I had a thought one day when I was putting deodorant on: What the hell am I putting so close to my breasts?
The answer was shocking. I challenge you to read the ingredients on your deodorant the next time you apply. Try reading this article about the ingredients found in Secret – it literally refers to it as “chemical soup”.
Now, not to be gross, but I’m a sweater. It could literally be 40 degrees outside and there I am with rings under my arms. Chemical soup? Yeah, that’s what my shirt is soaked with… right next to my boobs.
Now read the product review for LaVanila, the Healthy Deodorant. I was introduced to it after reading Tricia’s website, and knew I had to try it. I logged onto Sephora and purchased it immediately. It’s a little pricey, but lasts more than the standard deodorant – and hey, who’s to say that your breasts aren’t worth it in the fight against cancer?
Here’s what Sephora has to say:
