As I mentioned in my post on henna hair colouring, one of the most difficult things (for me, at least) has been trying to transition from mainstream deodorant to more “green” options. Over the past few months, I’ve tried quite a number of different alternatives and none of them worked for me. It was during this period when I was feeling a tad, er, concerned about body odor that I was offered samples of Lady Speed Stick to review (as well as compensation from Colgate for the time I would spend reviewing them). I dashed off a quick reply, “Yep, send’ em over!”
So, there you have it, my admission: I can’t handle it. I need deodorant!
Come to think of it, my very first deodorant as a young teetn was Lady Speed Stick (back then, I think it was called Mennen). Since then, the company has re-branded and the sticks look, and even smell, different (there’s more than unscented and baby powder out there!). Have you seen the new ad campaign, “Don’t Sweat It. Handle It!”? It cracks me up … I think this one is my favourite, but it’s hard to pick …
Okay, but can these deodorants do the job though? Here are the two sweat tests I put them through.
