Finding a good natural deodorant can be tricky. The options run the gamut, ranging from chunky pastes meant to be slathered onto your pits to lightweight gels made from acids. All of them have the same goal, to cut the stink and keep you fairly dry, but few have the ability to do that while also being cosmetically elegant, like a standard deodorant would. This one from Ursa Major, however, fits the bill. It has the easy glide of a conventional deodorant, absorbs moisture, and has a clean, unisex scent that’s neither overpowering nor offensive. According to Jacqueline Jones, natural-beauty writer at the Beauty Proof, it’s a “game changer” in comparison to other natural deodorants she has tried that were messy, stain-producing, and otherwise ineffective. “No matter what the weather’s like or how crazy my day gets, the Hoppin’ Fresh deodorant gets the job done without screaming dirty hippie.” Currently, it’s 40 percent off at Nordstrom (along with a bunch of other Ursa Major products). That brings it down to $11, not too much more than a conventional deodorant. And if you need more convincing, it ships for free.
