Product ReviewThis little gem was left for me by the local Skinceuticals Rep. I get a lot of products in for trials in an attempt to carry in our office, or some just for an online review. This was probably the first time I’ve fallen madly in love with one of them!

When I first squeezed a little of this out, my first thought was that there might be something wrong with it. It was a runny, almost watery texture with a small amount of tint. I applied all over my face and neck, and was amazed at how hydrating it was, with no greasy feel and a pretty good amount of coverage for a tinted SPF alone. It wasn’t heavy at all, and didn’t give me that gross sticky feeling.

Within a week or so this was all I was wearing on my face. No moisturizer, no foundation, no concealer, just this. I’ve ordered bottled for my purse and desk at work. It’s magical. No chalky residue, no greasy skin feeling and no breakouts. Perfect for my sensitive skin. Even more perfect for my melasma issues. I’m a total kook about things being  Paraben free, and it’s also chemical free. Skinceuticals hits a home run with this one.

PiperwaiAn all natural, good for your skin deodorant developed by two besties in Philly. I know what you’re thinking… I have tried all of the natural deodorants out there and I end up embarrassing myself by about 11AM…

I have tried all of the name brands, the rock, the crystal, making my own out of coconut oil and everything I could get my hands on to avoid using anything with aluminum, cancer-causing ingredients and products that stain your clothes.

“PiperWai is a charcoal crème deodorant created sans harmful ingredients. Its 100% natural ingredients form an invisible, absorbent, pH-balanced shield on your underarms that neutralizes odor and protects your clothes from perspiration. And it’s perfect for use on sensitive skin.”

I have to say, I was hesitant at first due to the overwhelming mountain of useless products I have acquired over the years. BUT, after seeing this on Shark Tank (my guilty pleasure) I decided I would try it.

“This is the first creme deodorant to contain super-absorbent activated charcoal, PiperWai rubs in clear and won’t discolor your clothes. And no applicator, no problem – this deodorant’s skin-conditioning qualities make it great for your hands. It’s a win-win.”

I had to wait a couple of weeks due to this item being backordered, but alas my order arrived yesterday. A cute little jar with a really nice herbal smelling “clay” type substance inside. The directions say to scoop out a tiny amount and apply to underarms. Initially, I thought “how is this clay going to spread and not be gross and clumpy”… Well, this stuff not only sort of melts into your skin, it smells nice, and leaves literally NO residue on your skin. That was cool, but would it pass the BO test?

I cleaned out my garage, organized my closet, rode my bike, only to find there was not a hint of stink. Nada. My fiance and I were shocked. This is literally the first and only deodorant that is good for your ksin, non-cancer causing and WORKS 100%. There is a reason they are backordered…

Thanks PiperWai for being awesome! #natural #charcoal #deoderant #austin #kristingunn
