A few months ago, I ventured into the natural deodorant arena and made my own using a simple recipe comprised on coconut oil, baking soda, and corn starch. The recipe worked but there is a bit of a science to it as not every combination works for each individual. I ended up getting burned on a couple occasions and it wasnt pretty. To make a long story short, this burning led to hyperpigmentation on my arm pits-which does not make for a nice sight! I started looking for a product-or range of products-I could use to help get me to the correct color. All the while wondering why I had to suffer through all of this for trying to make a healthy decision!!!!
Insert above product. I saw it in Lulu's and came home to google the product. I found lots of good reviews and decided to get some for myself. In addition to a more even complexion, some said they noticed less hair growth and that definitely was a plus. I started using it twice a day before deodorant (and after scrubbing my pits with an exfoliant and pumice stone). I must add that I have been using a special soap for my pits which I will review separately after further use. I have seen an improvement in the appearance of my pits.They are also very smooth. Hyperpigmentation is a difficult thing to get rid of and it takes time.I have two tubes of this and after they are done, I will probably not purchase again as it will probably have done all it is going to do at that point.
I also have hyperpigmentation on my face and decided to try it as the reviews seemed promising to also reduce oily skin. I DO NOT recommend on your face as it caused me to break out. It subsided after I stopped using the cream.
Oh, if you are not familiar with the medicinal properties of turmeric, do some googling. The reason this piqued my interest is because I was going to try and use turmeric but it is so messy and stains everything so I decided against it.This seemed to be a worthy alternative. If you are a person who likes to use natural products,I highly recommend having turmeric! Good luck!
