L'Occitane Cedrat Stick Deodorant is good for the ladies, too!

10/07/2016


Being in constant search of natural deodorants, I felt intrigued by L'Occitane deodorant selection because even though I've tried many of their products, deodorants never seemed to come up on my radar. After talking to a few lovely L'Occitane ladies I found out that customers often repurchase their deodorants and ladies often favor deodorants for men's ranges. After taking a whiff of all deodorants they had in the store, hubby and I have both settled with the L'Occitane Cedrat Stick Deodorant (75g | $18).

It has a wonderful design - something L'Occitane as a brand nails every time. I think it looks unisex and it smells unisex too. Cedrat is very fresh and lemony. The citrus notes are toned down by the ginger and cedarwood base. It just has the right amount of spicy notes added to the mix and has an earthy vibe to it as well. It basically smells natural and doesn't clash with the scent of clean skin. It is an aluminum and alcohol-free deo stick which has a wonderful consistency - it glides over the skin without any thugging and leaves it hydrated and fresh. Perfect for use after a shave as it is very gentle and doesn't cause irritation.

It would be absolutely perfect if it managed to keep me fresh a few hours longer, though. The usual problem with deodorants that lack the antiperspirant value of an antiperspirant deodorant is that they don't last half as long. With deodorants such as the Garnier Neo Dry Mist (does contain aluminum salts) I smell good and feel fresh for almost 10h. With Cedrat deo stick I can feel a bit of sweat coming through after 5h, which isn't bad at all if you have tried natural deodorants. But it could use some improvement. I am happy that it doesn't leave white marks on clothes and if you do get it on fabric, it washes out easily. I am curious as what are your experiences with natural deodorants? I tend to get a 4-5h wear (husband has almost identical experience) with which I'm satisfied with but natural deodorants simply cannot cope with gym time or my 12h-long workday (or night).

  • Konstantno sam u potrazi za prirodnim dezodoransima a nekako su mi promicali L'Occitane dezići, iako sam isprobala i koristim zaista veliki broj njihovih proizvoda. Nakon što sam popričala sam uposlenicama par L'Occitane prodavnica, saznala sam da su im inače među mušterijama dezodoransi dosta popularni. Interesantan podatak je da ženski dio kupaca favorizira deziće iz muške ponude. Nakon što smo suprug i ja šnjofnuli sve i jedan dezć koji su imali u prodaji, oboje smo se složili da nam se najviše dopada L'Occitane Cedrat dezodorans u stiku (75g | cca 34KM).
  • Pakovanje je divno - lijep i kvalitetan dizajn je nešto na što smo navikli od L'Occitane brenda. Mislim da izgleda uniseks baš kao što tako univerzalno i miriše. Cedrat liniju krasi veoma svjež, limunast miris. Citrusne note su ublažene bazom satkanom od nota đumbira i kedrovine. U mirisu se nalazi divna doza začinskih nota, što odaje prirodan i "zemljani" miris. U suštini, miriše prirodno i lijepo se slaže sa mirisom čiste kože. Ovaj dezić ne sadrži aluminijeve soli niti alkohol a također je krasne teksture - nanosi se glatko, naprosto klizeći preko kože ostavljajući je hidratiziranom i svježom. Idelan je za nanošenje odmah nakon depiliranja pošto je veoma nježan, blag i ne izazive iritacije.
  • Bio bi potpuno savršen kada bi uspio da "drži" samo koji sat vremena duže. Uobičajeni problem sa dezodoransima kojima nedostaje kvalitet koji imaju antiperspiransi jeste što im je trajnost duplo slabija. Sa dezićima poput Garnier Neo Dry Mist (sadrži aluminijeve soli) mirišem i osjećam se svježe gotovo 10h. Sa Cedrat pruirodnim dezićem u stiku mogu osjetiti da znoj "probija" nakon 5h nošenja. Što, ruku na srce, uopšte nije loše za prirodne deziće - to ćete znati ako ste ih ranije koristile. Ali da ima mjesta poboljšanju, to definitivno. Odlično je što ne ostavlja bijele fleke na odjeći a ako njim slučajno dotaknete tkaninu, sa lakoćom se ispire. Baš me zanima kakva vi iskustva imate sa prirodnim dezićima? Meni obično "drže" 4-5h (suprug ima isto iskustvo) sa čim jesam prilično zadovoljna ali naprosto mi nisu dovoljni tokom 12h dugih smjena na poslu, niti kada sam u teretani.
