When it comes to being "non-toxic" and "all natural" I'm somewhere in the middle of the road. Some call themselves silky mamas, they love their modern medicine, baby formula and room spray they bought at Target. Then you have your self proclaimed crunchy mamas, homebirth, breastfeeding and essential oils on everything type of mama. I'd like to think of myself as a... "scrunchy" mama. Not everything has to be gluten-free, organic, dairy free, hypoallergenic, grass fed, non-toxic, paleo, vegan, & "clean", but listen if I can find products as close to natural as possible, that WORK and are REASONABLY affordable, I'm IN! I like my organic this and that as much as the next person but don't count me out on cheese fries please.
BUT, since having Smith the products I put on my body (which effect him since I'm nursing) and ESPECIALLY products I use directly on him have to be something I'm comfortable with. Intro, Primally Pure.
Primally Pure and I recently partnered up after I did some testing on their products and I'm happy to report were pretty much in love. AND GOOD NEWS, for the month of JUNE I have a discount code for you at the end of the post. Here are my top four favorites to use right now & other products I've tried/will be trying! The real deal.
First up, the QUEEN that got me hooked. Their lavender deodorant is my favorite. It actually works! The scent is fresh, the texture of the actual deodorant is soft and gentle on your pits. Lots of natural deodorants irritate your arm pits but I didn't experience that with PP. You guys know I'm an active wife, mom & trainer so having a deodorant that works is a must. As with most natural deodorants you do have to reapply as needed but for ME personally that's only maybe one more time after initial application! I personally didn't go through a detox phase but Primally Pure has a blog post that covers what to do for that if you do! The 1.7 oz size lasts me 6-8 weeks. While I love the lavender scent, I ordered the geranium this time around to see what I think of it.
Second up, the Dry Shampoo for light locks. Dry shampoo makes life so much better for someone who sweats daily. Washing my hair is an event so being able to have reliable dry shampoo is helpful. I like this for the scent and that the powder seems like it actually soaks up the oil versus just covering the appearance of oil. I will say it doesn't "work" as well as the propane, butane filled counterparts but the exchange is worth it. I will say that if I scratch my scalp after using it I will have the arrowroot powder under my nails, when I first did this I forgot I had put the dry shampoo in and I thought WHAT IS GOING ON with my scalp?! Then I remembered. HA! I still like it!
