Bubble and Bee Pit PuttyThis review is one that I’ve been pretty excited about. I know you’re probably thinking: excited over deodorant? You need to get out more. And indeed I do, but that’s not going to stop me from being excited.

Replacing all of my beloved beauty products has been a very arduous and painful process. I was once known to have at least 11 tubes and/or tins of lip gloss in my handbag. Now that I’m trying to live a less chemical life, it’s been trial and error, and also a lot of money.

Enter Bubble and Bee Organics. I found Stephanie’s site while surfing around and I really don’t even know how I stumbled upon it, but I was really intrigued by Pit Putty.

I slept on it, paced, and took one long last hug of my icky chemically-laden antiperspirant before I bit the bullet and ordered it.

Oh, my sweet baby Jesus. I saw angels! And rainbows! And unicorns! I LOVE this deodorant.

When I first put it on, it was really flaky, and I looked in the mirror at my black t-shirt, which was now covered in white stains, and I was disheartened, but then I realized that I didn’t need an entire stick.

I backed off and used a small amount, rubbed it in, as the directions said, and then headed off to spend a day out in the hot sun. I did sweat a little bit, but it wasn’t much, and quite frankly, we’re supposed to sweat, but I did not stink. At all.

I wanted to give it a good week to give it a fair chance. I still love it. It isn’t sticky in the slightest, and when you rub it in, there’s no residue left behind. And it smells great.

All of Bubble and Bee’s products are chemical-free and organic. Everything smells so fresh and light. And Stephanie is so committed to making sure you’re happy, that they’ll go the extra mile to help you find a deodorant if you’re not satisfied.

Now if only I can convince them to make it in 5-gallon drums.
