Review | Primal Pit Paste Stick Deodorant and Charcoal Tooth Powder

Tuesday, August 27, 2019



I received free products in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and in no way influenced by the company.

Some time ago, I had a reaction to Dove deodorant that caused an intense itching sensation under my arms. Long story short, it led me to a natural alternative called Primal Pit Paste. I talked about this on the blog, and since then, the deodorant has become a regular in my morning routine. Because I love it so much, and it actually works (I still hold firm that many natural deodorants do not), I often recommend it to family, friends, and those trying to get away from more conventional deodorant brands.

If you remember (or just read) my original post, you'll see that I picked up the deodorant in a jar. As much as I praise this deodorant, the fact that it's in a jar tends to turn people off. But no worries! Primal Pit Paste also comes in a stick. All you have to do is place it on your skin for five seconds to warm it up, and then you can use it like you would any other stick deodorant. It's that simple!

The deodorant comes in many different scents. I am quite partial to Jasmine, but there is also Coconut Lime, Lavender, Lemonade, Mellow Matcha, Orange Vanilla, Rockin' Rose, Seaside, Wild Woods, and Unscented. They also have a baking-soda free version for those with extra sensitive skin.


Since I did my original review, Primal Pit Paste has really expanded beyond deodorants, and they now have bug repellent, tooth whitener, lip balm and much more. Now, if you've used typical tooth whitener, you, like me, may be really sensitive to hydrogen peroxide, the main ingredient in conventional tooth whitener. It does a great job at whitening teeth, but it can also make teeth really sensitive, which is exactly what happens when I use it. In fact, it can take a whole month before my mouth feels like normal (and in the interim, I am grimacing whenever I eat or drink hot or cold foods and beverages). Because of this sensitivity, I've read a lot about natural ways to whiten teeth, such as oil pulling and activated charcoal. So, seeing that Primal Pit Paste had Charcoal Tooth Powder, I totally had to try it.

According to the directions, you use the Charcoal Tooth Powder three times a week, and then move to once a week for maintenance. Because I am an avid coffee drinker, I decided to use it for two weeks to really help remove the stains. The end result? I'll be honest and say I personally didn't notice anything, but I did get compliments on my smile from two people last week and my mom noticed a whiter smile. Often times we are our own worst critics, so I will chalk that up as a win. I may need to use it longer to see results myself, but the fact that others notice does make me smile.

While I have been an avid and long time fan of their deodorant, I am happy to see that Primal Pit Paste is expanding and putting the same effort into delivering natural products that work beyond expectations.
