Getting in a good workout every day is important to me. Not only is it great for keeping the body in shape, it's a great stress reliever, does wonders for boosting the mood, and since I take my teenaged daughter with me to several fitness classes at our community center each week, it is a great way to bond with her too! I give each session my all, and most of the time that leaves me feeling and (a little tmi here!) smelling gross! I have been through almost every antiperspirant/deodorant they sell at the grocers, and I have yet to find one that leaves me feeling fresh and dry throughout my workouts. When I was offered the opportunity to try Rustic Maka Pachy Deodorants, which are formulated with only made-in-nature, organic and vegan ingredients, I was a bit skeptical, yet hopeful that it would finally give me the odor and wetness protection that I have been looking for.
Rustic Maka products are great for people who are seeking alternatives to traditional, chemically-filled health and beauty products. They formulate each of their personal care items with rich, plant-based oils, butters and powders, leaving out complicated formulas and harsh chemicals. All of Rustic Maka's products are prepared in small, carefully controlled batches, and packaged in BPA-free, environment-friendly recycled containers. So, not only are they good for the body, they are good for the planet too!
I have been using Rustic Maka Pachy deodorants for the past few weeks. I received Wild Meadows and Calming Fields scents. The Wild Meadows had a faint scent, a little like flowers and vanilla. The Calming Fields was stronger in scent, which was minty, like spearmint. When I first applied the deodorant, it did glide on wet, but completely dried after a minute or two. It does have a different consistency than traditional deodorants, feeling a little more gritty at first as you glide it on, but it blends nicely with a few swipes. What I really liked was that it didn't bead up and leave deodorant chunks in the creases of my underarms. While it didn't keep me 100% dry during my workouts, I did notice an improvement in overall dryness, and it did a fabulous job of keeping odor at bay!
My teen daughter sweats as much as I do during our workouts, and my pre-teen is just noticing the need to start using deodorant daily. I like Rustic Maka's commitment to offering quality products that are good for our bodies, so I feel good about letting my young girls use the products too!
