I’ve been using an App called Sweatcoin for around two years now it works by rewarding users with virtual coins for steps, encouraging you to exercise. The coins you receive cannot be used as real world money, they can however, be spent on the Sweatcoin App Store. Sweatcoin often partners with brands and will offer the opportunity to buy products in exchange for coins, and this is how I initially came across the AKT brand. I purchased the AKT The Deodorant Balm in SC.02, using Sweatcoin coins, so I guess you could say this item was #Gifted.
I am so glad that I did order this product – it is absolutely amazing! I’ve never really been a huge fan of aerosol deodorants, they’re bad for the environment, can irritate skin, and are difficult to recycle. I’ve found in latter years that my underarm skin is particularly sensitive and therefore I only want to use products with natural ingredients, which is one of the things that attracted me to AKT.
The AKT Deodorant Balm boasts all natural ingredients, no plastic, fully vegan, cruelty-free and the lasts all day!
How does it perform?
There are very few products I use that I can honestly say changed my life – but this is one of them. As aforementioned, I instantly fell in love with the brand and its ethos of using natural ingredients and recyclable packaging, and this product lives up to the same high standard.
The Deodorant Balm retails at £18 for a 50ml tube, which seems pricey I agree, but you literally need the tiniest squeeze to rub on your armpits and you’re protected from sweat all day! The SC.02 Ext. After Thunder variation of The Deodorant Balm contains: Cedar, Bitter Orange, Eucalyptus and Rosemary, making the smell positively refreshing and a tad high end – it almost smells like a Jo Malone candle.
SC.02 EXT. After Thunder Description on Packaging
A walk through the woods after a thunderstorm. Damp cedar. Fresh leave. Citrus ray of morning light slice through the canopy. Take a deep breath. Day begins again.
Aside from the wonderful fragrance and branding, the staying power of this deodorant is unreal. I rub a pea-sized amount on my underarms in the morning (you can also apply it anywhere else you feel you need sufficient protection); it absorbs instantly and moisturises containing Shea Butter and Calendula Oil, and at the end of the day you still feel and smell fresh. The Balm contains a special Deo-Barrier Complex formulated specially by AKT, keeping you dry and confident the entire day.
…And just when you thought this product could not be anymore pleasing / perfect, it is also unisex. These guys have thought of everything, and it shows. Amazing product, which I’d happily recommend to everyone.
