For quite some time I've been wearing sunscreen, applying serums and washing my face with gentle cleansers. Why? All in the name of protecting my skin and keeping it looking good for the long run. In addition to that I've also started to work on my nutrition since taking an online class on health and nutrition, and becoming scared of all the things in my diet that weren't all that great for me. Since then I've heard a little bit of gossip, both online and with my friends about the dangers of antiperspirants. So as you can imagine when I was told about the natural body deodorant that is ZAK I was extremely excited to get to try out their Super Smooth Elevate Body Deodorant.
Zak is based in Denver, which I love, and strives to have different formulas so they can work for everyone. While they are supposed to work like a deodorant these Zak products have the goal of feeling like a lotion. You can order from their site, or on Amazon, where you get free shipping if you're a prime member (as well as no hassle returns). The Super Smooth Elevate coms in a white stereotypical deodorant tube with a twist dispenser and pull off cap. On the middle is a pink sticker with the name. The ingredients are listed as Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Non-GMO Propanediol, Sodium Stearate, Stearyl Alcohol, Organic Essential Oils (Rose Geranium, Sage, Vanilla), Parsley Extract, Chamomile Flower Extract, MyrrhExtract, Cucumber Oil (Virgin, Cold-Pressed), Sage Leaf Extract, Grape Seed Extra
My Thoughts: Because I "sweat like a man" I was a little worried about switching from an antiperspirant to a deodorant, which doesn't keep you from sweating, just keeps you from smelling. Honestly I didn't think it would work, so I made sure to try it out for the past two weeks, where it's performed fantastically. Even on hot days I don't have to worry about smelling bad, which was my main concern, and the scent is fantastic without being obvious or overpowering. I'm also impressed by their claim to make it "like a lotion" which they've completely succeeded at, after shaving (which I don't have to do that often thanks to my Silk'n Flash & Go) it doesn't irritate my skin at all.
While there are a lot of products that I really like, I can say that this is one that I'm for sure going to buy again and again. It's not only a great deodorant but it also puts my mind at easy being a very natural product.
