Deodorants and antiperspirants were never my thing since they are said to cause a number of side effects from skin allergies to breast cancer. When I was browsing through Burst of Happiness website as told in this haul post, I was very happy to see an all-natural deodorant cream and I immediately ordered one. The variant I tried first was the rose crush one and today, I am reviewing the Burst of Happyness Lavender and Grapefruit deodorant cream!

Review of Burst of Happyness Lavender and Grapefruit deodorant cream:
Burst of Happyness is an all-natural, vegan and cruelty free skincare and bodycare brand. All thier products are handmade and they come in a reusable packaging!
Packaging: Love love love the packaging!! Comes in a medium-sized flat tin jar with a screw cap. It is so convenient to travel with when compared to their previous glass jar. A huge thumbs up to the BOH team for the new packaging 🙂
Fragrance and texture: The fragrance of this deodorant cream is a perfect blend of creamy citrus with a touch of lavender. Very fresh, extremely pleasant and not too strong. To me, it acts as an ideal wake-me-up scent every morning 😛
It has a slightly thick creamy texture which also has minute granules in it, however it vanishes on blending it into the skin. Once scooped out from the jar the deodorant cream starts melting due to the body temperature, therefore it spreads easily on the skin without any tugging. Immediately after the application it feels slightly sticky, but after 5 to 10 minutes it feels like as though there is nothing on the skin…Yay 🙂
Efficacy: I apply it in the early morning in the arms and elbow pits. The fragrance lingers on till 6 to 7 hours easily after which the smell lingers and you still do feel fresh till 9 to 10 hours. It is a heavy-duty deodorant cream!
The product does not claim to be an antiperspirant, so do not expect this product to work on that aspect but even when you sweat, this deodorant cream manages to lock in the body odour, leaving your skin feeling fresh all day. It also moisturises the skin and does not darken the area.
The fragrance and texture of both, the lavender and grapefruit deodorant cream and rose crush variant makes it ideal to be used for work, pre and post work out or just anywhere since the fragrance of this deodorant creams does not interfere with the fragrance of perfumes or body mists. They do not stain clothes or leave any residue behind on the skin or on the clothes. All this makes it a clear winner!
Overall, the Burst of Happyness Lavender and Grapefruit deodorant cream is a fantastic all-natural product which is skin friendly, smells great, keeps the skin fresh all day without darkening or causing any iritations. I absolutely love this product and definietly would be repurchasing it forever in all the variants 😛 I hope Burst of Happyness never stops making this amazing and unique product!
