I have had such a hard time! My search for a deodorant has gone on and on.
Fortunately a year ago I came across Lume! This isn’t sponsored or anything like that, this is just all about my findings!
I did a hair test a long while back and one of the things it said was that my body was high in aluminum. Which I guess a lot of people have that issue.
Immediately I was on the search for deodorants that didn’t include aluminum in their ingredients.
Back then, it was harder than it is now! Although as my search extended, there got to be more and more options.
Some of the more popular ones included baking soda. Annnnd, I come to find out that I am one of the lucky ones that gets a chemical burn with baking soda! Fun, right?
But still, I tried each and every one thinking that maybe the formula would be different and I wouldn’t have a reaction. Nope, each one that was aluminum free and had baking soda really did a number on me!
Finally I found Lume that mentioned it was aluminum free as well as baking soda free. Whaaaa? Sign me up!
I bought just one my first time. It was in the fall.
You can’t just try it for one day and know how it is going to be, so I used the full container. I had no issues whatsoever! My skin was healing too!
I kept using it and using it. The real test being in the hot humid summer temps. I didn’t have any issues at all!
It’s been about a year and a half now and I am still using it. They have changed formulas a couple times since I first started with them, and I still don’t have any issues.
I just wanted to share this with anyone else who may be searching for a deodorant too.
You can also use it on other parts of your body. You only need a little bit!
Not sure my armpits will ever look normal again, due to all of the chemical burns, but at least I finally found something that works for me! My search for a deodorant is over!
