A Natural Deodorant that Works

I love using natural cruelty free products and will seek out these brands when I’m selecting hair, beauty or self care items. Although I will always choose natural where I can, I will also not compromise on effectiveness, so until recently I have been using a regular deodorant: long lasting, very effective and picked up with my weekly shop.

Being a hairdresser, I work by standing and leaning over my customers; I want to feel confident that I smell fresh and feel dry for the whole day, and the products that I use must work as I need them to. In the past, I have tried many natural deodorants but with little success, always turning back to the more effective, yet not natural or organic brands.

However, being in my self care journey means that I want to do the very best by my body (and who would’t rather reduce the risk of rolling carcinogens so close to our lymph glands?), and so, I need to turn back to natural products. Tropic are a brand I have been interested in recently, so I decided to give their Feel Fresh deodorant a try.

Tropic is the brainchild of Susie Ma , Susie grew up experimenting with skincare products and, at the tender age of 15, was selling her produce at Greenwich Market. She went on to star in The Apprentice in 2011 and, although she didn’t win, Alan Sugar invested in her idea, becoming a 50/50 partner.

Tropic are a skincare, body care and make up brand that contain naturally derived ingredients, and are free from toxic chemicals. Tropic products have not been tested on animals, nor do they contain any animal derivatives such as beeswax or honey, and are Vegan approved. Tropic have won countless awards, including Ok Beauty Awards and The Natural Health Awards, and have been featured in many magazines including Instyle, Glamour and even Vogue.

This deodorant is also an antiperspirant and what is so unusual for me, it is in a cream form. It contains antibacterial citrus essential oils, soothing oat oil, repairing bisabolol and detoxifying bentonite clays. It feels very gentle under your arms, spreads easily and smells delicious. I find it to last well too, well over a couple of months for 1 tube. I have worked confidently all day and trained hard at the gym, with no sign of moisture or smell. So I am really happy to report that this product works very effectively, and I am a total convert. This is the very first natural deodorant I have ever been confident using.

If you would like to treat yourself to a Tropic Feel Fresh deodorant, it retails at £10 and you can purchase one here.

I am now trialling the Tropic Sun drops which are gradual tanning drops that you add to your moisturiser and their award winning Super green Serum so I will keep you all posted on these.

About Me

Hi, I’m Natalie Shirlaw, a professional hair stylist on a personal wellness journey.

My aim is to help women live a more natural life that will leave them looking and feeling amazing. Ever since I was 10 I’ve been fascinated with the hairdressing business and officially started working when I was 14. I’ve worked in some of the top UK salons and for some of the best hairdressers in the world, and I now have my own salon in Kent.

 As a hairdresser I’ve always wanted to give my clients the latest and best products and even ended up being a technical consultant for L’Oreal, but one thing was common throughout my career - 

I am passionate about finding natural and organic products that work just as well as the big brand alternatives, and that are ultimately better for you too. For over 10 years I’ve been actively researching, and testing as many products that I can. Everything from skincare, to makeup, to food and even home wear. I’ve been incorporating these products and tactics into my daily life since and I’ve never felt better. Outside of my regular work I’ve studied martial arts and other Eastern practices like Reiki, meditation, Feng Shui, EFT and NLP.

 So as you can see I’m a big advocate for all around healthy and natural living. I’ll be sharing my best tips, tactics and products here, that you can implement easily to live a more natural life, where you can feel and look amazing. I’m really excited to have you with me on this journey and can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together!
