PitROK Deodorant Wipes
We’ve never been too keen on applying ingredients like aluminium, propylene glycol or parabens to the underarm area. (Sure, the jury’s still out on parabens/safety, but it still boggles our minds slightly that brands still use them in an under-arm product when there’s no need.)
Crystal deodorants are a brilliant alternative, then. But they’re not always user-friendly. (It feels downright weird, to us, swiping a lump of rock across the sweat-zone.)
So these are a brilliant on-the-go solution: wipes (akin to facial cleansing cloths or baby wipes) which you can swipe under the arms – first thing in the morning, or even on-the-go if things get a bit hot ‘n’ bothered. They don’t leave white marks, either, yet the natural mineral salts blitz odour-eating bacteria, while gently conditioning your armpits with aloe vera and grapefruit seed extract. Why, even the packaging’s been glammed up by PitROK: you wouldn’t be ashamed if these were spotted poking out of your Anya Hindmarch handbag.
And we just got the name. Finally, after all these years. ‘Pit’ for armpit; ‘ROK’ for the minerals.
Duh. (And only one of us is blonde.)
UK readers find PitROK Deodorant Wipes/£2.49 at Morrison‘s supermarkets (the sexy new packaging’s not on-line yet but you could e-mail them at email@example.com for an update; meanwhile the slightly old-fashioned packs are on-line at www.amazon.co.uk if you click here.)
