While my makeup choices are not that conscious most of the time, I am pretty strict when it comes to deodorants. I declared war against aluminium salts years ago, and although some deodorants are quite disappointing, I have some favorites that will get me through (almost) any stressful situation that comes my way. However, the selection of approved-by-Vesnaenviolet products has expanded not for just one product, but I dare say for a whole brand! I am happy to announce that Nelipot deodorants have made it thorough my careful and rigorous selection process.
This post has been in the making for months and I have already used both deodorants up. Although I received three products at the Beauty Conference last November, my focus is almost entirely on the two metal pots–I will get back to the Shverkaj powder later on. Just to describe the brand very briefly: Nelipot is a Slovenian brand established by two amazing human beings. Tina and Simon started their story by making their own deodorant cream that actually worked in their kitchen! I love the design and creative names of the products. Even the name of the brand is so original as it means the one who wanders barefoot. I love how perfectly they blend tradition with a modern approach to cosmetics. Needless to say, all of their products are cruelty-free and actually beneficial for our bodies and skin, what a treat!
As already mentioned, I received two deodorant creams, i.e. SHAC and IROF. At first, I was really skeptical because good organic deodorant creams are really hard to find. Especially because I had a very bad experience with a cream deodorant by Lush (that happened around 10 years ago, but the memory of that disaster is still very much alive!!). After a few weeks of looking at the pots on my desk I decided to give them a go and oh my, I am so glad that I did. SHAC is is made of coconut oil, sodium bicarbonate, a number of other nourishing oils along with the scents of tea tree and lemongrass. IROF, on the other hand, is even stronger and is actually meant for men. It is filled with the scent of frangipane and bergamot and is nevertheless a great option even for women!
As already mentioned, the third item is the Shverkaj powder. This is a charcoal-based teeth cleanser in powder form with some Asian herbs that give it a fresh kick. I gave it to my sister because I am very picky when it comes to toothpastes, so she tried it out for me. She said that ginger and eucalyptus make it very refreshing, but you have to get used to it. Powder products for teeth are not that common after all :)
To recap, I loved both cream deodorants and luckily didn’t see any difference between the two with regard to their effectiveness. Both were amazing and I am looking forward to ordering other scents from their online store!
