This solid deodorant is packed full of gentle, natural ingredients to keep you feeling fresh. Utilize the power of absorbent sodium bicarbonate and witch hazel to stay dry, while antibacterial chamomile vinegar and cooling, fragrant patchouli keep you smelling sweet. Think of Aromaco as a roll on deodorant without the extra packaging. Simply rub under clean, dry armpits and you’re ready to go. Top Tip: To keep Aromaco fresher for longer keep it in it’s wrapper or a reusable box.
Aromaco was the first solid deodorant i tried from Lush, and it is also the least successful one for me. The smell was okay in the beginning, but after a few uses i just could not stand it anymore. I guess i just cannot handle Witch Hazel?
I struggled with the application at first too, since trying to use it on dry skin did not go very well. I then tried it after a shower when my skin was still slightly damp and it worked much better, the only downside then was that it made the smell way stronger.
I’m sure it would be a great deodorant if i just was able to handle the pungent smell, but unfortunately i cannot, and that is why it will get a pretty low score from me. The plus with it is that it is not rough like T’eo and you probably will not get any rashes from it (like I have heard a lot of others have gotten from T’eo, sadly). It keeps you from smelling sweaty and you do not have to reapply that often. Just be wary of the smell, it can be really deceiving at first.

A deodorant bar made of super-absorbent powders, fresh green grapes, and juniper and citrus essential oils to help you keep dry and fresh. This gentle but powerful bar makes light work of heavy perspiration, thanks to its nifty little team of freshmakers that absorb odours and work up some anti-bacterial magic.
T’eo was the second solid deodorant i tried from Lush, the first being Aromaco. I was not too impressed with the first but with T’eo, i was pretty much blown away. The lemony scent is great and it held up through pretty much the entire work day i had it on to try.
I reapplied it when i returned home and it lasted for the rest of the day (or until i showered a little later in the evening). The difference between T’eo and Aromaco is huge, with the first being a compressed bar of Sodium Bicarbonate accompanied by some blue wax to keep it together, and other lovely ingredients. Aromaco has more the consistency you expect from a soap bar, and in my opinion the smell was not too great.
I have read that people have experienced horrible rashes when using T’eo, but luckily i have not had that experience myself. It keeps me dry-ish and smelling lovely and i would recommend it to anyone who doesn’t have overly sensitive armpits.

♥ Krysztal (Kitchen product)
Fresh organic lemon and lime juices for their refreshing, astringent properties, organic jojoba oil to soften and cypress oil to refresh. Gently rub on dry pits to keep any whiffs under wraps.
After the success with using T’eo as a deodorant, i was really looking forward to trying this one when it was released in the Lush Kitchen. Like it’s brother of sorts, it is a compact bar, but with black wax rather than blue, and it has no decorative flowers. Scent wise, however, instead of having a very gentle citrus scent, it feels like someone peeled a lemon and a lime and shoved one up each nostril.
I don’t mind the scent at all but i think that was what made this an absolute bummer for me. After applying it and wearing it for an hour or two, i felt an intense itchy feeling, and a lightly red rash formed under my arms. I never experienced that with T’eo, no matter how hard i rubbed it on so I don’t the application is to blame at all.
You apply it in a similar manner, either rubbing the bar directly onto your skin or crumbling it up a bit and applying with either your fingers or a brush. I genuinely believe that the amount of citrus in it was way too much for my skin to handle to i would have to give it a.. well, i can’t give it a too high rating as it gave me a rash, but it did it’s job at masking up any bad odor. It lasted pretty much throughout a work day for me if i managed to suffer through the rashes but most of the time i wiped it off after a few hours.
I would recommend this for someone who doesn’t have too sensitive skin as the citrus can be a little too much. Also don’t use it if you just shaved your armpits, that might irritate it even more.

♥ Coconut powder
When it comes to deodorants from Lush, as you can see from the reviews above, I have enjoyed two out of three that i have tried.. This makes it three out of four instead! It is not the first time that i have used a powder as a deodorant, as i have used the silky underwear dusting powder to absorb moisture in a pinch before. However, it’s the first time I’ve used one that was intended to be a deodorant.
The application is a little bit messy since it is a powder after all, and it’s density makes it a little hard to get out of the bottle, but once you rub it on, the magic begins. It smells lovely of coconut and it dries up any moisture right away. It wore fairly long too, i applied it before work, and 8 hours later it was still going strong and still smelled like coconut.
It would have been a bit problematic if i would have to reapply it throughout my work day since it is easy to spill it when applying, so I’m really glad i didn’t have to. I started using it after trying out the Krysztal bar and it did sting a little, but i think it was because my armpits were a bit sore from rubbing the bar against the skin.
If you’re wanting to try it if it comes out in the kitchen again, i would recommend it just for the experience of using a powder, it’s an interesting experience!
