The Honest Company – Honest Deodorant Review

A surprisingly effective all natural deodorant  from The Honest Company by Jessica Alba

Hi Kind Friends! Today I am sharing with you an honest review of Honest deodorant. Hah. You see what I did there? Yeah, I know I’m not funny.

If you haven’t heard of the company before, The Honest Company was founded by the actress-turned-green-guru Jessica Alba and Christopher Gavigan, an author and entrepreneur. Together they have created a cruelty-free all natural company that not only has effective products but products that look good too. You can buy products a-la-cart or join a monthly bundle subscription program. There products are purchasable online and select products are available at Target locations.

One of their newest launches is the Honest deodorant and it made me jump for joy. This deodorant is quick drying, all natural, and effective. The coolest part? It sprays on like a body splash.

A unique all natural and cruelty-free deodorant option

To apply the product you simply spray two spritz on each underarm. The product dries in a matter of seconds so it is a convenient process. No white residue! Since I am a bit of a sweaty person I need to respray midday. The bottle is small enough (at 4 ounces for $8.95) to keep in my purse so I just head to the bathroom and spritz on again. The scent is technically bergamot sage but I don’t smell anything once it’s sprayed on my body.

The cons of this product would be the size. It is nice that it is portable enough to carry with me but it does seem like a product I will have to repurchase two or three times a year since I’m spraying it eight times in one day. I would love for an eight ounce bottle to be released along with a airplane regulated travel size.

Overall this product really impressed me. I have five other all-natural deodorants that are nowhere near as effective as the Honest deodorant.

This product is purchasable at It is not available at Target stores as of yet.

What do you think of the idea behind The Honest Company? Do you have any questions about my Honest deodorant review?

    I didn’t know they had deodorant…I’m a really sweaty person, too, so I would probably have to apply many times during the day. I need my anti-perspirant…which I know typically aren’t good for you.

      It’s really tough to find a balance between good and bad for you vs effective now-a-days. It feels like everything could be a carcinogen!

    Unfortunate for me; I tried this product (lavender vanilla scent) and had an adverse reaction. It burned my armpits and left them bruised, red, and sensitive. Thus this was the result of one use. I’m going to try to return it. I have used other products of The Honest Co. and was pleased. So this is a great disappointment!

      Maybe you were allergic to it? That’s a shame, thankfully they have a great return policy.

    I moved to natural deodorants last year as was using Native (a stick). I decided to try Honest since it was a spray. It works great! No residue and it really takes care of yucky, offensive armpit odor.

      Definitely my favorite deodorant! I need to get another one, I ran out not too long ago and went back to an old non-natural stick I had laying around.
