Product Review: Meow Meow Tweet Deodorant Sticks
For many people, deodorant is the gateway to clean, nontoxic products. They hear the scary facts and go looking for an aluminum-free deodorant—something more “natural” perhaps—before even realizing that toxins and unsavory chemicals lurk in products as seemingly innocuous as shampoo or lipstick. Sigh.
Deodorant is personal and for many of us, it’s imperative. It’s something we rely on day in and day out in order to remain part of polite society. No wonder there’s cause for concern when you find out what’s really in those conventional sticks you’ve been using since you hit puberty.
Here’s the trouble, though—deodorant can be one of those make or break items for people new to clean beauty. Find one that works, and you’re more likely to explore other nontoxic products. Find one that leaves you in a stinky lurch at the wrong moment, and you may write off natural products for life.
Here’s the other thing about natural deodorants—almost all of the good ones are in jars (at least until recently), and for some reason it really freaks people out to apply deodorant with their fingers. Admittedly, stick deodorant is more convenient, but apparently it’s really challenging to formulate a stick deodorant that works well and holds up in stick form, which makes the new Meow Meow Tweet Deodorants even more impressive.
Available in two flavors—Lemon Eucalyptus and a Lavender Bergamot—Meow Meow Tweet Stick Deodorants launch today and if I were you, I’d stop reading this review and order yours right now. Seriously.
Pure and simple ingredients you can understand plus the power to keep pits fresh all day? Check. Adorable biodegradable packaging that will remind you of the sherbet pushup pops you may have eaten as a kid? Check. Perfect scent combinations for men and women alike? Check.
Both MMT Stick Deodorants rely only on botanicals and mineral powders, and trust me they work. I’ve been testing both, and I’ve remained fresh and dry all day long through muggy, rainy conditions, vigorous romps with my dogs, and air travel—which normally kicks my stress levels (and thus sweat) into high gear. I really, really love and recommend the Meow Meow Tweet Stick Deodorants. As an aside, these sticks appear to be super durable. I landed in Dallas, Texas yesterday and had to leave my bag in the trunk of a hot car on an 80+ degree afternoon for several hours. As soon as I got to my room I yanked the deodorant out of my bag to make sure it hadn’t melted and fallen apart. It retained its shape through that heat perfectly!
So which one should you try? Well, I love that the Lavender Bergamot Stick Deodorant isn’t a total lavender bomb. The bergamot adds balance and intrigue, but even the lavender itself is more sweet and floral than herbal. Personally, I do have a slight preference for the Lemon Eucalyptus. It’s got a touch of clove that spices up the otherwise clean and fresh scent, and I’m a sucker for clove even when it’s discreet.
Have you found your holy grail natural deodorant? Will you be trying the new Meow Meow Tweet sticks?
