Cleo+Coco is an all natural deodorant for those who enjoy a highly creamy deodorant. So if you already know you’re going to hate that kind of texture, then there’s no need to continue reading. But skip to the Cleo+Coco Face and Body Bar because I think these are highly moisturizing, fantastic soap bars that are very affordable! Read on for my Cleo+Coco review.
Cleo+Coco Deodorant Review
Now that that’s out of the way, if you’re still here, let me introduce you to clean deodorant and body care brand Cleo+Coco. I knew this brand way before they had the chic packaging they’ve got today. Throughout the years Cleo+Coco has gained a loyal fan base, which can only mean that their deodorants work for many people, though as with any natural deodorant, not everyone. Nontoxic deodorant is a tricky area because everyone’s body chemistry, odor and environment is so unique. It’s a trial and error process to find out what works for you.
Here are the basics about Cleo+Coco deodorants:
- All natural and aluminum free
- 4 scents available + unscented
- Baking soda free version available for sensitive skin
- Travel size and zero waste bar versions available
- $18.99 for full size (True Blue $20) / $11.99 for travel size
If you have sensitive armpits I don’t think you would do well with the regular Cleo+Coco deodorants. They’re quite strong and might irritate your skin and cause a rash. I would suggest going for the baking soda free option if you still really want to try this brand, which are still very strong in my opinion.
I use the True Blue sensitive formula which has no baking soda. At $20 it’s a little pricier than the other scents. The sweet and floral blue tansy scent is amazing. I personally enjoy scents like blue tansy, neroli and bitter orange. Not everyone enjoys blue tansy though, so True Blue is definitely made for us blue tansy lovers.
I feel like I’ve mentioned this multiple times already, but one can never be too careful, so I want to reiterate that this is a very creamy deodorant. Creamy. Not a solid gel, gel-cream hybrid, or anything in between. Product does transfer onto the twist up part of the packaging. A lot of product easily transfers onto the armpits so you really only need 1 or 2 swipes. Anything more and you might irritate your armpits if you’re a clean deodorant beginner or are sensitive.
I find that Cleo+Coco helps fight odor all day long and the scent tends to last for the better part of the day.
