Native – The Ins & Outs of Our Favorite Deodorant

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Hey there! If you’ve been following us for a while, you may have seen our Native Deodorant videos. The ones where Gwen and I sit and smell (and then describe) allllll of the Native deodorant scents. Native comes out with new, seasonal scents a few times a year, and we’re always curious to see what they smell like, soooo…it’s become our thing.

It turns out, however, that you guys have questions. Questions like “Does Native actually work???” Or….”Does Native work right away? And even, “What is the best scent for tweens?” So when Native reached out and asked if we wanted to work together on a little FAQ, we pulled our most-asked questions riiiight up. (And if we missed one, let us know in the comments, and we’ll try to get you an answer.)

Smells like teen spirit? Maybe. Native is a deodorant we love to try, smell & review...(like in this video). Check out our tips about going natural.

Oh!!! Before I forget, Native is offering you guys an exclusive discount code:

And don’t miss out on Native’s new line of body washes and soaps. We smell ’em all in the video, and give you our honest feedback (hint: both good, but the body wash is more true-to-the-scent than the soap), as well as their…charcoal toothpaste? Have you guys tried the stuff? I’m so intrigued. (Maybe that’s our next video, haha.)

And here’s a little cheat sheet of our favorites, just for fun….

  1. These do smell amazing but they left my underarms with dark, stained skin. It was so gross! Had to switch to something else.

  2. You have me hooked on Native. I only tried it to get ready for my 2 boys approaching teen years, but an glad I did. Question for Mike to answer: does he have to really rub it in due to armpit hair? My husband has shirt staining from it and I can’t tell what’s going on. Thanks!!

  3. I’m glad it worked for you. I had a completely different experience; it caused a rash & tender areas, followed by skin darkening (confirmed by my derm and while on no medications) and when I wrote to them and sent photos they were repeatedly dismissive. Rather than advise that this can happen due to the baking soda as many other brands do, they tried to insist it was caused by switching from aluminum antiperspirant to their brand, when I had not used antiperspirant for over 5 years, so that’s nonsense. They then refused to stand by their exchange policy. Mine is not the only account of this.

  4. It smells fantastic (I have the orange honeysuckle), but leaves white marks on EVERYTHING. I am still searching for a natural deodorant that is legit clear/non-marking.

  5. I have really loved Native. My favorite was the Fig & Honey . . . I wish it would come out again!!

    I’ve been using it for a couple of years, and it works sooooo much better when you do rub it in, AND it doesn’t stain your clothing when you rub it in. I thought it would be gross to rub my underarms, haha! But it’s just like rubbing coconut oil into your skin.

    I use Coconut Vanilla the most, and I was REALLY skeptical about the new formulation without baking soda. But it’s actually better . . . and it goes on more smoothly.
