I bought this deodorant on iHerb and I snuck it into my husband’s bathroom cupboard. It was only natural that I asked him to help me write this Herban Cowboy Natural Grooming Deodorant review.
My husband is an omni and of rural background (read: manly). He never considered vegetarianism and when we first started going out years and years ago I’m pretty sure I was the only vegetarian he knew. He is basically my biggest challenge….
His favourite past time include riding his motorbike or working with his hands (wood, metals, fire preferably), sipping on Scotch and listening to 70s bands like Led Zep or ACDC.
He has been using the Herban Cowboy Natural Grooming Deodorant for about a month now, so I asked him what he thought of it.
Vanja Stace: Hey Danny, that new deodorant I bought for you – is it working? Do you like it?
Danny Stace: I like the stick, it’s nice and creamy, The shape of it is good, being long, it gives a better application.
VS: What do you think of the packaging?
DS: I like the packaging, it has a manly feel, not too designery or prissy.
VS: And how about the smell, is it nice?
DS: I must admit he fragrance is a little bit ‘herbal’ if you like, but it’s spicy enough that it feels more like a cologne than a day at the spa. The cinnamon is a little overpowering, I’m not used that that I guess.
VS: And how is it working?
DS: Performance wise – keeps me dry as mush as any antiperspirant does. I haven’t noticed any deodorant staining of my shirt. I guess that would be a downside because I am getting sweat stains more than white stains. I still have to soak the shirt, use stain remover if I want to remove it, but at least this feels more natural.
VS: What would you say if I said this was cruelty free, not tested on animals?
DS: Cruelty free – I didn’t now that it was, but that’s always a plus. I didn’t know they still tested deodorant on animals. That’s just weird.
VS: If I said that this was vegan, would you still wear it?
DS: Yeah I would. For me this is most important:
- First thing – it has to work properly
- Smell has to be half decent
- It has to be healthier than the normal kind – i.e. no aluminium
VS: Overall grade out of 5?
