Tired of experimenting with ineffective natural deodorants, one beauty writer finds redemption in Schmidt’s Naturals. Living with hyperhidrosis, a condition where excessive sweating occurs, coupled with a concern for “the potential ill effects of antiperspirants,” prompted the search for a compelling natural alternative.
After a string of natural deodorants failed to keep the author dry and free of odor (“I promptly realized that most only work for, like, an hour”), Schmidt’s Rose + Vanilla deodorant jar stepped in to offer some relief.
The jar formula’s six simple ingredients are to credit for keeping “B.O. at bay until the end of the day.” No complaints about the Rose + Vanilla scent either, which makes for “whiffs that smell more like an English garden than your grandmother’s perfume.”
The author notes that the creamy texture is an adjustment from the typical stick form, but has also introduced a new self-care ritual: “Who doesn’t like an armpit massage in the morning?”
“Since finding Schmidt's Rose Vanilla deodorant, my gateway to pits that stay dry and smell incredible, I kid you not, it's become my signature scent." -Rachel Nussbaum, Glamour
