North Coast Organics Vegan Deodorant Giveaway!

PSA: If you're wondering about the winners of the Earth Balance giveaway from last week, hang tight. There will be six winners, but I'm in the process of contacting each person and making sure I get addresses. If you're a winner, you will be contacted this week. I'll post the winners names here in a few days.

It's time for ANOTHER giveaway, people! And this time, we're giving away stuff that'll make your pits smell so fresh and clean. Let's face it — most vegan, Earth-friendly deodorant sucks. I'm not naming names, but I've experimented with a number of brands that have to be reapplied every hour on the hour lest I smell like a stinky old sock (vegans, you know what I'm talkin' about).

For the past year or so, I've been using one brand that I buy at Whole Foods that's just okay. It's better than some of the worst ones, but it still needs at least one mid-day reapply to offer all-day protection.

So leave it to a small, mom-and-pop vegan company out of Chicago to develop an all-natural vegan deodorant that's laced with essential oils and ACTUALLY WORKS. North Coast Organics sent me two samples of their Revolver All-Natural Deodorant and their Death By Lavendar All-Natural Deodorant. I've been putting them to the test in these last few hot days of Indian summer.


I can swipe this stuff on once after I get out of the shower, and it works all freakin' day. All freakin' day, y'all. I did have to reapply after a few sweaty workouts on the stationary bike (still off my foot with a stupid stress fracture!), but that's to be expected from any deodorant. It's made with cold-pressed coconut oil, carnauba wax, cornstarch, baking soda, and essential oils. That's it!

The lavender scent is my favorite, because lavender is the essential essential oil in my house. I use lavender oil for everything — baths, sleeping, calming, even in cupcakes! But I also loved the Revolver scent. I'm not sure what essential oils are in this one, but I'm getting hints of patchouli and maybe sage. Or maybe not. Smells great though and definitely macho enough for a dude but gentle enough for a lady (not that I'm gentle).

North Coast Organics wants to give two winners each a set of travel-sized deodorants in both scents. All you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this post for one entry, and if you want an ADDITIONAL entry, tweet the following (and come back here and leave a comment letting me know you tweeted!).
Vegan deodorant giveaway on Vegan Crunk from @NorCoastOrganic and @biancaphillips: http://tinyurl.com/mxll9hu
Please leave your email address in your comment (unless your account is tied to a blog where I can contact you or unless you tweet and I can tweet back. Basically, just make sure I have a way to contact you in case you win). I'll randomly pick the winners next Tuesday. If you don't win, never fear. North Coast Organics is offering a 15 percent off discount to Vegan Crunk readers. Go to their site and use promo code 15VC. It will work for 21 days after this post.

This sweaty italian girl is in desperate need of a natural deodorant that WORKS - i've tried all the well-known others & they are no match for my mutant pits. :(

I haven't worn deodorant in years but have recently been thinking of trying some out. My pits be stinky!

A decent vegan deodorant that works would be great

Jan Scholl said...

Interesting as I have never heard of this brand. I think the "gun" thing bothers me. A lot.

Sophie said...

I think Aubrey Organics makes a vegan deodorant, and this has been my favorite one to date. But I always look for travel size deo!

OMG. I have seriously been having a mental whine session about lack of all natural deodorants that don't suck all this week. I would LOVE to try this, but will probably order whether or not I win - because lavender.

I think I have somewhere in the realm of 15 vegan deodorants in my linen closet that do not work! I feel guilty throwing them out, so it is like a deodorant purgatory in my closet! I would love to try this brand!

I missed the contest, apparently. Just posting for posting's sake. It's what I would have done if I had posted in time. Thanks for the heads up on this great deodorant! I'll have to look on it myself. Thanks again. (And forgive my food-deprived, electronically-fatigued ramblings. :) )

Megaera said...

Hey! Just wanted to say I got to try these and they are wonderful. Softer than I'm used to in a stick but they smell really nice (both Lavender and Revolver) and work well. Did not wear them while working out unfortunately so I can't testify to how well they work for that but for daily use, very awesome!!!
