Review: Salt of the Earth Pure Aura Deodorant

I have been a fan of natural deodorants for the past couple of years, they just seem to get on better with my skin and they seem to work for me. However, I have recently found that I’ve had to reapply the ones I was using, so when I got the spray version of the Pure Aura deodorant from Salt of the Earth I was definitely interested in trying it out. As you may be able to tell by the fact I went and bought the roll on version I was definitely a fan.

The roll on of the Pure Aura Melon and Cucumber scented deodorant holds 75ml and costs £5.49. The full sized spray is £5.99 for 100ml so is a bit more cost effective but I’d say that price difference is for the container rather than the deodorant itself so it’s purely a case of which kind you prefer. I got a half sized spray from the Holland and Barrett advent calendar last year.

Blogmas Day 22 & 23: 2 Days in 1!

The Blogmas title image. It is split in two with two Christmas Costa coffee paper cups, one on each sideI didn’t manage to write a proper advent calendar Blogmas post yesterday but I did post something so I’m counting that! For some reason today I’ve felt like it’s Christmas Eve all day, I’m already getting too excited for Christmas! Also today was a fun day until my phone screen pretty much shattered, though stayed in place, so it’s all taped up and I’m crossing my fingers it’ll last till February, or maybe longer, before I need to get a new phone as my contract will definitely go up as I’m sim only at the moment and I need to save everything I can in January!

Anyway, onto the advent calendars. And the Harry Potter figures are so appropriate together and I’ve really been looking forward to the day I got the creature that came in today’s window so I’m so happy with these two. I kind of wish one of them could have been on Christmas Eve as I have a feeling I know what’s coming and it’s not as exciting. The Holland and Barrett beauty goodies were so good too. It’s got to the point where I’ve forgotten what was even meant to be in here so they’re all surprises again. Another essential oil and some deodorant may not sound that interesting but I think the deodorant may become a favourite from the calendar. Is that weird?

Review: Dr Organic Deodorant in Vitamin E and Dead Sea Minerals

I have been on the lookout for a good cruelty free roll on deodorant or anti perspirant that is easily available in the UK, which seems to have been harder than I thought. For some reason I just don’t get on with creams,or rather not skin doesn’t, and there’s only so many times I’m willing to try them.

In a recent Holland and Barrett online window shopping trip I saw a couple of the Dr Organic deodorants in my recommended products and given how much I’ve liked their products in the past j thought I’d give them a go. At the time they were in a buy one get one half price offer but normally cost £5.79, some still are in the buy one get one half price offer as well. They have a large range of scents available, I think even more than in their standard product range, at least as many. These range from very feminine scents, like the rose one, to more unisex scents and I think the Dead Sea Minerals one definitely fits into that category. The other scent I chose was the Vitamin E deodorant, which is somewhere in the middle and could be a unisex scent though it has some floral hints to it.

Fortune Cookie Soap: Peter Pan Summer Soap Box

FCSpeterpan

You may have seen my previous posts on Fortune Cookie Soap, I do love their products and their quarterly subscription box lets you try smaller versions of their new line before it’s released. This can be found on their site, this is the page for the soap boxes. They have lots of limited edition mini collections as well as their seasonal lines so it’s worth checking back fairly regularly if you like the look of a couple in the permanent range but want to make it worth the postage, which can be quite high if you live in the UK as they’re in America.

The company makes bath and body products and their signature is the fortune cookie shaped soaps which I love as they have a formula that means they last quite a while, lather well especially with scrubby gloves, but they aren’t so huge as to last ages which I find a problem with some soaps. I like to have a range of scents and don’t stick to just one until it’s finished so I’ve had soaps go on for ages before. I’m getting better at not doing that but these smaller soaps do help.
