Hi, I'm Helen from Tea in the Tub, a cruelty-free lifestyle and beauty blog. Today Jess has kindly let me do a post for her lovely readers so I'm here to tell you about Marks & Spencer’s Nature’s Extracts Antiperspirant Roll Ons.
There are countless cruelty-free deodorants but finding a cruelty-free antiperspirant deodorant is near impossible. (Deodorants just cover up smells whereas antiperspirant’s stop you from sweating). I already love the M&S body butters (see my review here), so when I found out about BUAV approved Nature’s Extracts roll ons, I was straight down to M&S to stock up. Currently (July ’14) they are on a 3 for 2 offer so that’s £1 each!
I purchased Blissful Strawberry and Fresh Aloe Vera but Creamy Coconut and Pampering Cocoa Butter are also available. As you can imagine, the strawberry roll on smelt very sweet but I found that the fragrance was a bit too subtle for me so I had to reapply it later on in the day. The aloe vera fragrance lasted longer but had more of an alcohol waft to it.
Overall they are not the best antiperspirants I have used but as they are animal friendly and at an affordable price, I will most likely be buying them again so that I can try all the whole range of fragrances. I also like that each fragrance has it's whole range so if you like the Blissful Strawberry roll on, you can also buy it as a body butter, hand cream, shower gel, the list goes on.
If you would like more cruelty-free reviews and much more, please come visit me at Tea in the Tub or find me on Twitter @teainthetub I'd love to here from you. Thanks for having me Jess!
