Sher, owner and creator at Savonara, is very sweet and super talented. We did a trade and I got some of her soaps (which I will review on my Soap Blog in a couple of weeks) and I got her shea butter deodorant. Honestly, I was hoping for the best, but I didn't have too much faith in its effectiveness. Armpit goo (aka Shea Butter Deodorant) made with shea butter, coconut oil, baking soda, corn starch and essential oil just doesn't sound like it would combat the armpit stench that often comes from the granola smacking group of people in the crystal aisle.
So "curmudgeon me" aside now:: That goo works!! I swear that stuff surprised me silly. Now, I didn't go out in 90 degree weather and weed my garden for hours to test, so I am not sure how it would perform under heavy duty sweat conditions, but I have used it for about two weeks and I do my fair share of sweating, especially when I am formulating and lugging 25 pounds of shea butter from here to there.
To use: dip finger in goo and scoop out about a pea (closer to chickpea, perhaps) sized shea lump and spread onto skin under the arms. This does not feel oily or sticky in any way, which surprised me. I truly thought I would have a greasy yucko feeling in the pits, but I did not.
Sher made me a special scent, geranium, but she is selling her armpit goo (aka Shea Butter Deodorant) in rosewood, orange tea tree and lavender lemongrass. For 2 ounces, it costs a mere $6,00. I think that is very reasonable. And no cancer! How about that!!??
Check out her soaps because not only are they gorgeous to look at, they smell awesome! She also has a blog, if you want to go check that out as well!
