Rocky Mountain Soap Company Natural Deodorant
I’m not going to lie, at first glance, the packaging reminded me of something I used in the early 2000s when I was first inducted into the wonderful world of underarm fragrance. But once I took the cap off, I remembered just how easy and effective using a roller application was. This deodorant is liquid though, so I was intrigued to see how long it would take to dry after applying to my underarms. I gave it a couple of minutes to fully sink in, and much to my surprise, it was fully dry with no stickiness or chalky residue.
The Workout: I wore this to BOLO, a fitness studio that recently launched its official location in Toronto’s downtown core. I was put through a HIIT class that involved weight lifting, calisthenics, and explosive athletic conditioning, as well as a 15 minute core workout in their hot room.
Sniff Test: This deodorant ended up being quite the success after being put through a hot room where I — quite literally — felt as if I was bathing in my own sweat. But after a quick scan, I found that even though my armpits were soaking wet, the tea tree scent faintly remained. (Love tea tree oil?

Please note that I had been using this natural deodorant for three weeks prior to testing it during this workout.
