Juicy chemistry Rose deodorant stick review

Juicy chemistry damask rose, sea buckthorn and jasmine deodorant is  one my recent purchases from the brand. I have reviewed similar products from  brands like Vilvah and Burst of happyness before. Here are the links if you haven’t already read the reviews:

On the same lines, JC has a range of 3 deodorant variants, out of which I chose the rose one.

To all those who are new to natural deodorants, these are not anti-perspirants, and hence doesn’t hamper the biological toxin removal process. It merely imparts fragrance to the under arms skin and thereby prevents the foul sweat smell. Also unlike the synthetic deodorants, it contains no toxins and generally causes no irritation to the skin (unless you have any issues with the natural ingredients or essential oils used). It also prevents skin darkening which is a general side effect of synthetic deos.

Ingredients

Arrowroot Powder, Beeswax, Cocoa Seed Butter, Shea Butter, Apricot Kernel Oil, Tapioca Starch, Sodium Bicarbonate, Coconut Oil, Seabuckthorn OilVit E, Sunflower Seed Oil, Geranium) Oil, Hydrated Aluminium Silicate, Ylang Ylang Oil, Jasmine Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Diatomaceous Earth Powder.

My take on the product

Like all other  products from the brand, the Juicy chemistry deodorant stick also has an amazing blend of essential oils, which gives it a sweet fragrance, predominantly of jasmine. To compare, the Vilvah deo had a stronger rose fragrance which used to linger longer on skin as well.

The packaging is eco friendly card board one with a push up applicator. As you use up the product, it can be slightly pushed up from the bottom to use.

The consistency is what I love the most. The Vilvah deo had a very creamy consistency (the packaging changed from plastic to similar cardboard package now. So not sure if formula also changed). So there was no control of how much you apply. Sometimes in high humidity and warm temperatures, you end up applying more than required.

But with Juicy chemistry deo, the consistency is just creamy enough to apply without any tug but not so creamy that you end up applying more.

I stay in a hot and humid climate, and hence I need to reapply the deo every 3-4 hours on days with excess sweating. There is no sticky feel on the skin and this cream deodorant doesn’t leave any cast on the skin.

Comparatively, the Vilvah deo used to hold up fragrance longer than this. But if you are sensitive to strong fragrance you might prefer the JC variant. Also I prefer the consistency of JC deo to Vilvah one.

Since the product is not so soft, you end up using just the right quantity and hence I am sure this will last me long. It is compact, light weight and hence travel friendly.

I would like to try the other deodorant variants from Juicy chemistry before I find a favourite for repurchase.

A note to JC: I have come across the wrong product content being printed in the JC packages at times. For eg, in the Directions to use section of this product, they have also mentioned the usage directions of the scrub.

Vilvah Rose & Vanilla Natural Deodorant

Let me introduce you to a new brand in this post, Vilvah which is a natural skincare brand based in Coimbatore. I bought a couple of products from them a few months back and my favorite out of them is this Rose & Vanila Deodorant.

I have introduced to you the vegan lavender deo cream from Burst Of Happyness.     Many of you prefers the deo in twist up applicator and guess what, the Vilvah one comes in one. Let’s take a look at the details of the product. 

Product description:Sweating is a natural process and not something that we should stop our bodies from doing. Many mainstream deodorants use aluminium chloral hydrate and aluminium zirconium to block this process and work as an ‘antiperspirant’ to stop sweating. Most of the deodorant contain aluminium which is absorbed directly into the bloodstream when applied on your armpits. It is particularly not safe for women which lead to breast cancer and can cause hormonal imbalance.

Price & Quantity : 590 Rs for 60g

Benefits:

Make your armpits happy with our natural deodorant range. The deodorant we make are not designed to block the sweat glands. Instead, we use a combination of natural ingredients to help absorb wetness, neutralise odour and making you smell fresh with our essential oil combination.

Ingredients: Shea Butter, Virgin Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Arrow Root Powder, Natural Vit E,  Rose Essential Oil, and Vanilla Essential Oil.

My take on the product:

I like the packaging and I find it much more convenient to carry and use. The deodorant has a heavy rose fragrance that lasts long.  If you are not a fan of rose scent try other fragrances from the range, as the scent is strong, kind of like talcom powder fragrance. But there is no artificial fragrance added and you know how much I like the rose fragrance of natural skincare products (check out here).

The product is very creamy and easy to apply on skin. Make sure you rub the product very lightly on skin. A little quantity will suffice and rubbing it more than once will just cause wastage of product. So to make it last long, apply minimally and you are good to go.

Eventhough it is preferable to store the deo in a cool, dry place; I did not see it melt or leak when I traveled with this in a hot and humid area. So this is quite travel friendly.
