We have a winner!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have found my deodorant! I am glad that this search did not take a very long time. I was surprised as the response I got from my first post. Who knew that deodorant was such a hot topic?? I even had a friend text me to tell me that they have been searching for an aluminum free deodorant for about a year now!

While I still enjoy the Desert Essence from the last post, I am generally a very active person and I need a deodorant that will keep up with my active lifestyle. Well here it is! Kiss My Face Active Life Deodorant.


They make several different scents as well as unscented. And there are no white marks! This is something that I have noticed with all of the natural deodorants that I tried and that is a huge plus! (Am I right ladies who love to wear black?) This deodorant lasted through a walk to get lunch and an outdoor wedding in the 80 some degree weather without having to reapply! While this one works well for me, it may not work well for you. Let me know which ones you have tried and which ones worked or didn’t work for you!

Also, on my walk to lunch, I saw the following sign, in case anyone is really good at the Cheebacca roar, I figured I would share to give you a chance to win. I am not sure the validity of this contest, but for entertainment purposes, the sign was amusing.


Ta-ta for now! On to find my next adventure!



Let’s start a blog

Clearly I do not have enough going on, I figured I might as well start a blog. Or I am procrastinating working on homework. The world may never know.

So what adventures is Lightning currently engaged in? Well school for one. Only 26 more days until graduation #1. I will officially be a college graduate with an Associates in Applied Science for Administration of Justice. That’s a mouthful, eh? I am definitely excited for a break from homework and more time for adventures!

Another adventure I am engaged in is the search for Aluminum free deodorant. Sounds strange, but this is important. My bestie texted me a week or so ago and said that I should switch my deodorant to one without Aluminum as that ingredient could be linked to an increase in breast cancer. (The internet cannot confirm this one way or the other, but since my bestie is a nurse, I listen when she speaks.)  So this blog post will get you updated to where I am on this search.

The first deodorant that I tried was Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting unscented deodorant.



Most days when I wore this deodorant, at the end of the day, I smelled like I hadn’t put any deodorant on. Embarrassing! I thought, there have to be other and better options out there. A trip to Whole Foods told me that there were several other choices, but they were all expensive. So I decided to check Sprouts next. Jackpot! Other options that were cheaper than Whole Foods.

So the next one I tried was Desert Essence Tropical Breeze Deodorant. I love the smell of this one, it smells like the beach! I have worn it all day today and keep smelling my armpits, and so far, we have success! I am going to have to thoroughly test this one and wear it for a hardcore workout. The final verdict of this one will be posted soon.


Now you are updated on my current adventures. I shall see you soon with more!
