If you're thinkin' about stinkin'...
The warm weather is upon us, ladies, and I'm about to let you in on a horrible secret I've suffered with for years. When I funk up, I STIIIINNKK!! STINK! The ironic thing about it is that I'm totally paranoid about ever smelling bad. I'll sniff myself about a dozen times a day to make sure all the good scents are holding together, and if they're not, I avoid my co-workers like the plague. Without the help of a good strong deodorant, I'm smelling like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young on Day 3 out at Woodstock. It's a smell that could best be described as "Hardened Criminal", you know? So I'm big on soaps, perfumes, showers, toothpaste, and our buddy deodorant. It's a must in my world.
Before I go any further, I do want to debunk the old myth that antiperspirants and some deodorants cause breast cancer. Let me state firmly for you that there is no link between the two. None. Allow me to linkify you to the article from The American Cancer Society themselves that totally flushes this silly Internet rumor right down the crapper: Antiperspirant Use Does Not Increase Risk Of Breast Cancer. And there you go - can't do much better than The American Cancer Society, now can you? And with that fear put to rest, please, allow me to continue to regale you with how I smell like a farm animal unless I'm using the best deodorant money can buy.
So I'm loving the idea of these clinical strength deodorants/antiperspirants, but the problem is, they all seem to be the animal-tested drugstore brands. What to do?
Here's what to do! Our friends at the lovely and glorious cruelty-free Revlon just happen to be the parent company of Mitchum deodorants! And Mitchum deodorant has many versions of Lady Mitchum, which I love. And now...
See that? See what the label says? CLINICAL STRENGTH Lady Mitchum!! Cruelty-Free and keeps yours truly fresh as a freakin' daisy all day, even in hot weather! It doesn't stain my clothes, it dries right away, it's cheap, it's cruelty-free, and your grateful and stink-free blogger is finally a happy woman!
Much love, and stay dry in this heat!
