Zak Detox Deodorant

Disclosure: I received a sample to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own.

Over the past four years my family has been transitioning from commercial products full of harmful chemicals to all natural products. In the small chance we can’t find a product, we make our own (which can be messy with two boys.) The one thing we couldn’t make or get right was deodorant.

Now, if you’ve ever tried natural deodorants, you understand the ups and downs that come with it. You find a brand, it seems to have everything you want, doesn’t smell like aluminum, so you buy it. You get excited, wear it and after a 20 minute walk, you find yourself at a Walgreens purchasing wet wipes, a trial size of Secret and a resolve to never try it again! This has been my struggle for way too long, until now. I can admit I was skeptical and that I waited a full day before trying the deodorant but once I did, I was all in!
Zak‘s  simple philosophy on what a natural deodorant should do only confirmed what I felt once I started using Elevate.

It is our mission to provide you with the healthiest and most effective deodorant in the world, to empower you with knowledge about
non-toxic, natural body care products, and to help you discover your natural well being.
We have replaced irritating, toxic chemicals found in conventional deodorant with natural, plant-based ingredients. Our innovative deodorant formulas bridge the gap between natural health and deodorizing effectiveness. Zak Detox Deodorant is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids that repair and replenish your cells. It is made to respect your health, your expectations, and our environment.

Zak Detox DeodorantI have a pretty busy schedule and I wanted to make sure I gave Zak’s Elevate a real run for it’s money so I could be fair and honest in this review.  My week consisted of two intense workouts (one HIIT and one crossfit-like) as well as my 3 mile daily walk/run to and from the train and of course just keeping up with the boys.  I can definitely say this natural deodorant is a WINNER. Not only did it survive my turnt-up routine, but after being trapped on a bus in 90 degree heat with no air conditioning, I walked off smelling fresh with the driest arm pits EVER!  My only issue was the rough feel on the first application, I stopped noticing after day two and a fresh shave 🙂

Now for the good stuff! The awesome team at Zak has provided me with a full size product and two minis (for those on the go moments) for one lucky reader!  As well as discount code to share with all my readers!
