Recently, my family and I took our annual summer vacation…a weeklong stay in the Florida Keys🌞 We look forward to this trip every year! Not only is it a week of sun, fun, and relaxation, but I also use it as a week to try out new goodies I have purchased or received in the recent weeks or months.
I was super excited to receive a box of deodorant goodies from Pacifica Beauty 💗 As you know deodorants are a weak spot for me…I have to say my pits are pretty picky! Keep reading for my thoughts on the new Pacifica Beauty Underarm Deodorant Water and the Coconut Milk & Pineapple Underarm Deodorant Wipes and whether they pass my infamous pit sniff test LOL 🤣🍍
It seems that my pits do not take kindly to most deodorants. Prior to going cruelty free, I always had to buy the clinical strength options to get the job done. Regular strength and natural formulas just don’t cut it. A decent deodorant for me is hard to find, few and far between.
This trip to the Florida Keys was the perfect scenario to try out a new deodorant. I knew I would be spending a ton of time outside & in the water, basically creating a sink or swim test for any brand! The best that could happen would be it does an amazing job, while the worst that could happen would be a total deodorant melt down. I figured it that happened I would use this week as an excuse to detox my pits.
My plan was to use the Pacifica Beauty Pineapple Waters Deodorant Water in the morning, and use the Coconut Milk & Pineapple Underarm Deodorant Wipes to freshen up throughout the day 🌊
This is a pretty unique item on the market. I personally have never heard of a deodorant water! It comes in a 4 oz pump spray bottles and retails for $9. Pacifica prides itself on creating innovative products that are both effective and free of harsh chemicals. Their deodorant water is no different. This is an aluminum free alternative to a typical natural deodorant.
All in all, this was a miss for me. I think it goes back to my inability to find a deodorant that really works. Ever since I’ve had kids, an effective, natural formula is like a unicorn. This may be a great alternative for someone who is not at such a deodorant disadvantage. I would say it effectively lasted about an hour max before I noticed that it was not passing the sniff test. I found myself having to go back to my hotel room and actually wash my pits and go with their Coconut Milk & Pineapple Underarm Deodorant Wipes instead.
Now these are a product I can get behind! I have been a fan of the wipes prior to receiving this particular scent. As a matter of fact, the Coconut Milk & Essential Oils Underarm Deodorant Wipes were a recommendation in my post, 10 Must-Have Coconut Body Goodies YOU Need this Summer for Healthy, Glowing Skin & Hair 💙
I am not willing to sacrifice my stance on using cruelty free products just because a deodorant isn’t going to last all day. These wipes are perfect for a midday freshening up, and will get me through to the afternoon where I can be home and back in the AC. Plus, living in South Florida, let’s be real. It’s hot as all get out 😎 I keep these in my car and just use as needed 👍
Overall, I am happy to see a brand like Pacifica Beauty being on the forefront of trying to develop more natural, cruelty free, and vegan products to replace what we consider more mainstream products from non-cf brands. Even better they are available at one of my favorite stores ever,. Target 🎯 I do think they may need to evaluate the effectiveness of the deodorant water, and see if they can’t make it a bit more potent for those of us with problematic pits 🤷 LOL!
Tell me…Have you tried anything from Pacifica’s line of deodorant products? How did they work for you?? Any recommendations???
