What kind of deodorant do you use?
Several weeks ago, one of my friends casually asked our group text thread, “what kind of deodorant do you use?” Usually, I’m pretty knowledgable about health and beauty methods, but I was completely shocked by the answers of my best friends. I just kept thinking, “How have you been holding out on me for so long???”
Here’s the deal—I usually use a coconut oil + baking soda mixture that works alright, but if I’m speaking in front of people or am going to be out all day, I steal some of Logan’s Old Spice. And that’s basically all I knew about deodorant…whateve you can find on the deodorant aisle at Walmart or some kind of essential oil DIY thing.
But over half of my friends have been using this crazy deodorant called PiperWai. It comes in a tub, you apply it with a spoon (wha…?!) and it utilizes activated charcoal to absorb wetness and fight odor. They were all raving about it, as weird and expensive as it is.
The other surprising thing I found out—lots of my friends never wear deodorant at all! They were like, “three or four times a week,” or “only during the summer.” Deodorant ranks up there with underwear and mascara on my list of things I put on before starting my day. It’s totally out of necessity—I sweat like a horse and smell just as bad—and I was filled with envy by the women who apparently aren’t sniffing their armpits every couple of hours just to make sure they’re still socially acceptable.
Anyway, now I’m so curious! What kind of deodorant do you use? Am I the last person on earth to find out about PiperWai? Are you one of those women blessed by the gods who doesn’t have to wear deodorant??? Spill the beans!
