Arbonne Pure Mint Deodorant - is it good as they say it is?

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

I run.
I clean.
I work.
I network.
I clean.
I walk.
I do volunteer work...and yes, I'm on television! (that's something new!)

Every day I walk at least 5 miles just to get from one place to another. I'm always walking or running from one train station to the next, and I've been cleaning the house for the past 4 weeks!

And like everyone else, I don't like to sweat. I have tried quite a few deodorants and not one seemed to work -- keeping me dry, smelling fresh and safe to use, until...

A few months ago, I was having breakfast with my dear friend, Maria. And I noticed that her skin was flawless. She smiled and said that she takes care of her skin , don't we all?  So anyway, I just thought she's born with it, so we went with our regular conversations about our college-bound kids.

And then a few weeks ago, we were having our monthly breakfast with friends and I noticed how beautiful her skin was (again) and that's when she mentioned a new product that she's been using and loving!

You're probably wondering, what does Jen's armpits got to do with Maria's flawless face?

Ha! That's when I was introduced to Arbonne. I'm not an expert on what the company does but all I know is that their products are natural, pure, safe and beneficial.

Arbonne's catalogue printed the company's ever green commitment: "At Arbonne, we are all about being green - always have been and always will be. From botanically based ingredients to forward-looking green improvements, being earth friendly has everything to do with who we are and how we choose to grow."

Pure, safe, beneficial. Sounded good on paper. But will it really work? Is there a difference? Will it cost me an arm and a leg?

I have super sensitive skin so I am still in the grueling process of figuring out what skin care products work for me. As soon as I get results from that experiment, I'll definitely let you know.

BUT there's one product that I really love and it's the ArbonnePure Mint Deodorant! The deodorant kept me dry and smelling fresh! You should see me around my house or during one of my walks with my friend and family - I was smelling my armpits to make sure the deodorant was doing what it was supposed to do: Kept me from being stinky!

Arbonne Pure Mint deodorant is aluminum-free and paraben-free. It's infused with mint and baking soda and other natural ingredients and it does not leave you smelling like your deodorant. And plus, it doesn't leave a white residue on your armpits or on your dress.

But what really attracted me to the Arbonne Pure Mint deodorant is that it's natural! In using the Arbonne brand, I know I'm not adding chemicals or toxins to my body. I've had a few health scare which motivated my family and I to try to live a healthier life, and trying to limit our intake of non-essential poisons is a priority.

Arbonne Pure Mint deodorant is a little pricey ($17) but if I added all the sticks of deodorant I have in my drawer, I think I'm ahead.

So Arbonne Pure Mint deodorant, you got the GottaLoveMom's Seal of Approval!

Update: March 11, 2015
Unfortunately, after 6 months, my son and I stopped using the Arbonne Pure Mint deodorant because it didn't keep us fresh smelling and/or dry.

  1. Oooo! I will try that when I finish my stash. I only use paraben free and aluminum free too. Thanks for sharing this. Very helpful! Mwah!

  2. Arbonne is probably the least effective aluminum-free deodorant. Also to clarify, Arbonne is not as "natural" as they claim (check the ingredients lists on their products...which they don't easily make available). Yes their products contain botanicals along with conflicting ingredients making the brand barely better than most conventional brands...hence the need for personal selling.

  3. Thank you for the heads up. I'll definitely check into it.
