My quest for the perfect eco/Willo-friendly deodorant continues with what turns out to be, as my young friends would call it, an epic fail. I really wanted to love Pit Putty. I had heard other green bloggers and environmentally aware people raving about how it was the only thing that worked for them. Unfortunately, I couldn't get it to work for me at all.
It started out well. The Bubble and Bee website is fun, friendly, and easy to order from. My products arrived in eco-conscious reused paper with not a shred of plastic in site. The trouble came when I first tried to use the product.
I struggled to push it up in the deodorant stick in order to rub it on. It came out in a white crumbly mess. I showed my husband who kindly (ok, patronizingly) pointed to the label where it instructed me to rub it in with my hands. Not a fan of deodorized fingers. I know-this coming from the woman who promotes earth friendly women's products-but I honestly just couldn't get into the habit of having to rub this in every day. And even then it got on my clothing.
Add to that the fact that it didn't work very well at all and melted to an un-appliable mess when I tried to take it to Relay for Life and I was done. I tried. I did. I don't know why I seem to be the only green blogger who can't get on board with the Pit Putty, but there it is.
Has anyone tried this? What were your experiences? Any more suggestions for eco arm pits?
