Eco by Sonya Natural coconut DEODORANT
After writing a favorable review on EcoTAN’s beautiful organic ‘Invisible Tan’ a few years ago, I have gradually become aware of some of their other products that will no doubt make you feel like one of natures princesses.
At this point I'm feeling my general confidence in the brand becoming automated, to the point that I blindly without any knowledge of something they've developed just trustingly order it into my local health store.
This time I've committed my attention to EcoTAN natural coconut deodorant so that I can share it with you as it is not only organic but also vegan and cruelty free!
I had heard a rumor that Sonya Driver, the founder of EcoTAN had been told by one of her personal friends that he was very happy with the results of this deodorant after a 10K run.
Well of course I was skeptical when I read this, after all, it's natural, organic and good for you so how can it possibly work that well? I wanted to believe but I need to put it to the test.
While I don't run 10K, I do jog nearly 7K most days and do some vigorous exercise afterwards followed by yoga.
So I get home with my new deodorant and I was kind of embarrassingly excited which is not a completely foreign feeling for me when trying new vegan products but I guess the anticipation of ordering it in and waiting knowing full well that I was going to make this product work for this review was all coming into realization.
So here we go.
Day one I get up in the morning, take a shower and of course I put on my new deodorant. Making sure to do plenty if RST's (random sniff test) throughout the day, I'm feeling pretty good by lunch, till fresh! But after dinner was when it really kicked in for me, and I thought to myself “Hey, this is actually a really great product!”
Once the kids had gone to bed I did a workout. Push ups, leg raises, planks, sit ups, kettle bell routine and yoga… annnd, sill fresh. I mean, I smelled like a human... What can I say? I didn't smell straight fresh out the shower, but I never in a million years expected to use a product so natural and so kind that would actually work so well. The entire day’s results were from a one time application.
Day two I decided to go for an extra two km's today on my jog, just in case yesterday was an unusually smell good type of day... You know, just to be sure!
I kind of have a little joke with myself that when I get home from a jog, I better not smell good so I'm thinkin, ok baby bring it on! I guess a little skeptical about the results of the previous day.
It was an interesting jog, I had a suntan when returned home and I’ll tell you, for a winter day it was rather hot!
Now let me interrupt your reading for this short disclaimer. Humans are meant to sweat, it’s natural it’s healthy, it’s human. You really should not stop that. Ok i’m done now back to it.
Let me be brutally honest, I don’t think I've ever used a deodorant that made me smell like a bed of roses at the end of a jog and this day was no different. I smelled like a human that had just gone for a 7K jog but did it do its job? I would say yes it absolutely did. Am i happy with this product and would I recommend it to my friends and readers? Absolutely.
I was wondering how to rate this if I were to give it something out of 10. Its not easy because it’s so different to anything else. For practicality and performance I want to give it a 10/10 but, i’m going to give it an 8.
Give it a try and let us know what you think :)
