This weekend, I went to the Mosaic District to just stroll around. If you live in the DC area and haven't been there, I totally recommend it. It's cute, quaint and the shops and restaurants are really great. It charms you into thinking you aren't near the otherwise desolate Dunn Loring metro station.
The Mosaic District has a MOM's Organic Market, and I stopped in there real quick to pick up some Giovanni Direct Leave-In since I'm almost out. Now, if you know me, you know I can't just go into MOM's, grab what I need, and come out 2 minutes later. Oh no, I have to lollygag around, look at the different oils, see if they have any ALO Drink (they didn't), and just waste 30 minutes in there because it's that awesome. This lollygag session turned out to be quite productive; I finally got my hands on Giovanni's new hot oil treatment (review coming soon) and some Primal Pit Paste.
So before I give this review, let me back up a bit. A couple of months ago, I was running out of deodorant. I normally get Dove Solid Deodorant for Sensitive Skin, but there was none at the store, so I got Dove Go Fresh Revive since I liked the scent. A couple of weeks later, my underarms were itching like crazy. I've used Dove with no problems since I was a teen, so I didn't immediately think it could be the deodorant and kept using it. Fast forward to last week, and through some random epiphany, I realized that the fragrance used was causing my skin to react and become irritated. I planned to get the Dove sensitive skin deodorant during my weekly grocery trip, but having gone into MOM's first, I couldn't help but pick up the Primal Pit Paste...despite my bad experiences with natural deodorants.
Now, if you've been following my blog for awhile, you've probably realized that I've never done a bad review. While suspect, it's not really. I just don't like to make a habit of talking poorly about a product or company. But, and I won't name names, natural deodorants have really let me down...more liked let me smell badly. So I'm always really wary of trying them, but what caught my eye with Primal Pit Paste was that it's a cream that I apply with my hands, instead of a stick...and that's it. Seriously, that's the only reason why I got it. I got this stuff on a whim, I was in MOM's, and that's what always happens, lol.
But even though this was an impromptu buy, this stuff is amazing! All you do is take a pea size and apply it to both underarms, and you go on your way. It's not really anymore intrusive than using stick, and because a little goes a long way, I know it's going to take awhile for me to use all of it. Also, and more importantly, this stuff works. I literally do not smell at all. No funky smell, no musty smell, not even a faint smell. It has eradicated odor, and I mean "I came back from the gym sweaty, and I still didn't stink" eradicated. And finally, and most importantly, I don't itch anymore, which is awesome.
So all in all, I totally recommend Primal Pit Paste. Perfect for those with sensitive skin, and even those without sensitive skin.
