Grapefruit & Cedarwood Roll-on Deodorant from Amphora Aromatics
I received this deodorant from Amphora Aromatics free of charge, in return for an honest review. All opinions are based upon my partners use of the product as well as my own thoughts.
Amphora Aromatics have been sourcing and supplying pure essential oils and other high quality sundries since 1984. They are a well-respected and long established wholesale retailer.
I was lucky enough to receive a bottle of Grapefruit & Cedarwood roll-on deodorant for men and enlisted the help of my other half to try it out. This comes in a 50ml glass bottle which was very securely packaged and reached me in perfect condition and used a minimum amount of packaging. Unlike other roll-ons, this contains no aluminium, alcohol or synthetic parfums, only natural ingredients and pure essential oils.
The refreshing grapefruit is an essential oil which helps balance the skins natural oils and smells gorgeous, whilst the cedarwoods main job is to attack the bacteria which causes body odour and also adds a woody note to the overall fragrance making it more masculine.
The bottle is an ideal shape to sit nicely in your hand providing easy application. As the name suggests, it has a roller top which is used to apply ......
Unlike similar products, the roller works really well on this and my other half didn't have any problems with it sticking. Each time he used it, it glided easily and without dragging the skin ....perfect! The smell itself is really strong and you can tell it's made with natural oils. The grapefruit gives it a lovely uplifting fragrance making you feel energised and ready to face the day ahead whilst the cedarwood keeps it masculine with its woody undertones.
It took slightly longer to dry than my partners regular deodorant but the smell hit him immediately and he said it felt really comfortable to apply. We both noticed that the smell lasted well into the day, although he did re-apply after around 5/6 hours which was pretty good going for him. He said that there was no dampness throughout the day, despite him feeling a bit hot and the deodorant was the only smell he noticed ....phew!
He did feel that the bottle looked a little feminine and took a bit of convincing that it was a deodorant for men, but apart from that, we were both very impressed with the results.
Grapefruit & Cedarwood Roll-on Deodorant can be purchased from Amphora Aromatics and is currently on offer for only £3.96 (usual price £4.94)
