Tried it Tuesday: Native Deodorant #Giveaway

Native Deodorant is “a deodorant that isn’t a chemistry experiment.” I was given the opportunity to try two of Native’s seasonal scents. Native is an all natural deodorant brand for men and women that contains only simple, all natural ingredients. These ingredients work together to naturally fight odors.

Native Deodorant is made in small batches in the United States. They never test on animals, “except humans.” Native Deodorant contains no aluminum or parabens. Why is this important? Native says “Aluminum is a toxin found in antiperspirants that is linked to breast cancer and Alzheimer’s. Parabens mimic estrogen and disrupt your hormonal balance.”

Native Deodorant is offering ten seasonal scents. They are: Coconut & Vanilla, Lavender & Rose, Grapefruit & Bergamot, Cucumber & Mint, Cotton & Lily, Eucalyptus & Mint, Citrus & Herbal Musk, Oakmoss & Basil Leaf, Tea Tree & Sage and Unscented. Natural Ingredients found in Native include: Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Beeswax, Baking Soda, Vitamin E, Vegetable Preservatives, Acidophilus, Coconut Oil, Dextrose, Probiotics, Castor Bean Oil, Stearyl Alcohol, Fractionated Coconut Oil and Arrowroot Powder.

I love the packaging and instructions!

I had the opportunity to try two scents. I picked Coconut & Vanilla (their most popular scent) and Cucumber & Mint. I tried Coconut & Vanilla first. It reminded me of a day at the beach. As nice as that is, I didn’t love it for my deodorant. Sun tan lotion smell makes me want to take a shower. Crazy? I moved on to Cucumber & Mint and loved the light fresh scent. That was the winner for me!

I’ve tried other natural deodorants. As an athlete, I can really work up a sweat. I was worried about how well it would hold up. I gave it a test with several long runs. Then, I used it before the Reebok Sweat Crawl with A Sweat Life. That was 4 half an hour workouts with runs in between on a warm summer day. I’m happy to say that the Native Cucumber & Mint was up for the challenge. It’s a winner.

  1. Audrey Stewart says:

  2. Kimberly G says:

    I have been using Degree deodorant for years because I sweat A LOT, but I would love to try a natural option. The cucumber mint sounds great!

  3. Christopher Sorel says:

    I would try Citrus & Herbal Musk

  4. Abigail says:

    cucumber mint!

  5. I have used natural deodorants before, yes. I am tempted to say Eucalyptus and Mint but I really do not want to smell like a walking cough drop so I would go with Cucumber and Mint

  6. sheila ressel says:

    I have never used native deodorant before. If I won I would choose Lavender & Rose and Cotton & Lily.

  7. Renata says:

    Coconut and vanilla sounds lovely!

  8. Lavender and rose! I actually sweat and stink less now that I use only natural deodorant.

  9. Sarah N says:

    I would try the cotton & lily.

  10. latanya says:

    cotton and lily. no I have not

  11. Colette says:

    What about the Pina Colada and Margarita scents they just had for limited addition. I would love to try the lavender Rose :o)

  12. Marty says:

    I’d try the cucumber and mint. I’ve tried making my own natural deodorant before, but the recipe contained a lot of coconut oil and I really didn’t like the greasy texture.

  13. Heidi Bee says:

    The coconut and vanilla scent sounds like something I would like!

  14. steph says:

    I’ve tried making it and didn’t like the way it turned out…this may be a good option.

  15. Raymond says:

    Unscented sounds great.

  16. Kris I. says:

    I would pick Coconut & Vanilla and I havent tried all natural before, but I would love to.

  17. Mary Cloud says:

    I’d try the Coconut and Vanilla scent.

  18. Lisa N says:

    I haven’t tried natural deodorant before. Is it only a deodorant and not an antiperspirant too?

    I’d try coconut & vanilla and eucalyptus & mint.

  19. Becca Z says:

    Oh my word, they all sound so good. I have used natural deodorants for about 25 years. I would get the Oakmoss and Basil and the Cucumber and Mint.


    Cucumber mint!

  21. Britty Brannon says:

    Id choose cotton and lily! And yes i’ve tried natural deodorants before!

  22. Dana says:

    I’d choose coconut and vanilla one and I’ve tried all-natural deodorants before with mixed results.

  23. Mary W says:

    I have not tried any natural deodorants yet but have wanted to try them. So hard to choose just one scent. The choices all look great. Tea Tree & Sage would be the one I would try first.

  24. Cindy Merrill says:

    I want to try the Oakmoss & Basil Leaf and Tea Tree & Sage scents. These are good herbal scents.

  25. Amy Lauren says:

    I’d try the coconut and vanilla.

  26. barbg says:

    I would go for the coconut vanilla because I love anything that smells like that. I would also pick the unscented as the other scents would mess with my allergies.

  27. sarah s says:

    It could change but the Eucalyptus & Mint and Citrus & Herbal Musk sounds like interesting scents to try.

  28. Denise C. says:

    I think I’d try the Cucumber and Mint, simply because that sounds yummy 🙂

  29. Mary M. says:

    I have been using natural deodorant without aluminum for about 30 yrs. now. I haven’t heard of this brand, but would love to try it. I don’t know if I would stick with my normal unscented or choose cucumber & mint or coconut & vanilla or grapefruit & bergamot. These sound intriguing and like I wouldn’t be allergic to them and they wouldn’t smell too strong. We’ll see which one I will choose when the time comes, hopefully soon.

  30. Sarah L says:

    I’d like the Eucalyptus & Mint and the Lavender & Rose
    Thanks for the contest.

  31. darla says:

    cotton and lily. I have tried natural deodorant before, I’d be interested in finding another good one

  32. vickie couturier says:

    cucumber and Mint sounds nice

  33. Kelly McGrew says:

    Sangria and Mimosa are definitely original and interesting! I’d get those for sure!

  34. Amy S says:

    I would probably try the Grapefruit & Bergamont or Cotton and Lilly. I have never tried all natural deodorant but have been increasingly curious.

  35. Mary Rutter says:

    I would pick up Coconut &Vanilla

  36. Sandra Preti says:

    Coconut & Vanilla is my top choice! Also Cotton sounds interesting.

  37. Amanda C. says:

    I never thought natural deodorant could stand up to summer long runs – I’m impressed! With you on smelling like something neutral vs. beach, especially in the office 🙂 Thanks for the review!
