Tried it! Kosas Chemistry AHA Serum Deodorant- A Natural, No Aluminum or Baking Soda, Alternative Deodorant.


When I first heard of “Natural Deodorant” I couldn’t help but think ” Musty, Stinky, BO” just to name a few words that came to mind. However, my family health history has lead me to a more natural way of life. I’m definitely not perfect, I don’t always use “Clean” make up or organic food. However, I really try and incorporate small changes that will help me live a healthier lifestyle.

My family, on both my mother and fathers side, have a vast history of breast cancer. Family history wasn’t enough for me to make changes until my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago. Breast cancer hit home, literally, and that was when I realized I needed to take my health more seriously. Those health concerns only grew when I had my baby girl. I want to do anything and everything possible to ensure I live a long and healthy life for her, so I can care for and love her for as long as God allows.

I am a full on sweat-er. I put my shirt on and I already have sweat marks. I used to use the clinical strength antiperspirant deodorant from drug stores and that STILL wouldn’t keep me 100% dry. Although I wish what I’m saying was an exaggeration it’s not and I’m here to give you all the bare nasty honest truth. Let’s get down to what everyone really wants to know, does this deodorant actually work? and my answer is yes but also no. Let me explain.

Pros

  • Great smell
  • No white marks or residue on clothing
  • 8/10 controls sweat
  • Lightens armpit darkness (Hyperpigmentation)
  • Helps with ingrown hair

Cons

  • Wet formula takes some time to dry down.
  • Need to reapply to avoid BO
  • Packaging

I give the Kosas Chemistry AHA Serum Deodorant a 7.5/10

This deodorant has many benefits that makes me really want to make this work for me. Unfortunately its not my go to everyday use, especially my busy moving and grooving days. I absolutely love the smell or better yet lack there of. The smell is very light almost nonexistent which I personally love. My favorite benefit however is the lightening effect, which definitely brightened and lightened my arm pits. As well, I noticed a significant reduction in ingrown hair which I am extremely prone too.

However, as much as I love the benefits that I mentioned above I have to keep it 100 with you guys… it didn’t stop me from being a little stinky at the end of the day. Mind you that I am a stay at home mom that is cleaning, cooking and keeping up with a 1 year old but unless I reapplied towards the afternoon I could definitely smell myself. Also, the packaging makes applying a little difficult once your half way through the product. The product is suck towards the bottom of the tube and doesn’t apply product as evenly with the roller top.

Regardless, I love the benefits so much that I still use this deodorant at night after I shower so that I can sneak in those lightening factors. If your not a heavy sweat-er like me and are looking for a natural deodorant then I would say giving the Kosas Chemistry AHA Serum Deodorant a try.

Holiday Gift Guide: Clean Skincare at Sephora & Introducing Solis Modern Wellness

The holiday season is upon us and because 2020 has been one hell of a year, this Christmas needs to be one for the books as well. If your looking to gift skin care products to your loved ones try introducing them to clean non-toxic options, which Sephora now has plenty of! Another option for clean beauty is Solis Modern Wellness, which is a brand new venture between myself and my sister Decire. I am sooooo excited to show everyone what we have been working so hard on, such as serums, face scrubs, toners and so much more.

Solis Modern Wellness started as my sisters solo hustle and soon she invited me along for the ride. For years, I’ve been in the pursuit of the perfect skin care for my sensitive acne prone skin, but with little success. It wasn’t until after I gave birth to my daughter did my skin take a turn for the worst. My face was like it had never been before, dry, rough and dull, which was the complete opposite of what it had been my entire life. However, thankfully Decire saved me with her sugar scrub, which is now our Radiance Face Scrub. She explained how she changed her skin care into clean nontoxic options. As I sat there listening to her passion speech of healthy skin care, her skin literally was glowing and it was enough for me to change mine too. My skin is not perfect, but its the best its been for as long as I can remember and its all because of switching my skin care to strictly clean and nontoxic. Solis Modern Wellness is more than skincare, we also have wellness items that support the whole family such as our Kids Detox Reset, Nontoxic Bug Spray and Immunity Rollers. Our goal is to bring clean nontoxic beauty and wellness for the entire family.

Below I’ve compiled a few clean beauty items from both Sephora and Solis Modern Wellness so you can shop for great gift sets or stocking stuffers. I’ve tried all these products and stand by them, so whichever ones you treat your loved ones with I’m sure they’ll love!
