Let’s be frank, lockdown has made us lazy.
While the end of lockdown is looking somewhat unpredictable, it may be time to reinstate some of our everyday, pre-Covid routines – wearing underwear and deodorant being at the forefront of that priority list. However, with all of this time to reflect, a lot of us have reconsidered using kinder, more natural products to ease us back in.
With that in mind, we’ve decided to round up a list of the best natural and aluminium-free deodorants worth investing in for both men and women alike…for when you’re ready, of course.
