We recently went grocery shopping but this time a special item was on the list: Deodorant. But this wasn’t just any deodorant or even for me, the hubby or SoccerBoy…this time it was for BalletGirl. She’s 11 and getting to wear she sweats up a storm and is kind of shy about it. I say kind of because really it depends on who is nearby if she’ll let ya know “her pits stink or not.” haha. I have to love her no fear attitude, but there are certain people she would die if they ever mentioned her pits or even she stunk. Who is that? Her peers, peers and the opposite sex unless of course it is her family then she just don’t care. When it comes to family she’s more about competing who stinks the worst. But that is just at home and never in the general public unless you count inside our van. Oh and she doesn’t like the deodorant that leaves the white streaks, so off to Walmart I go.
So we’ve decided to try out some new stuff: Crystal body deodorant roll-on. First they do not leave that horrid white residue that regular deodorants do. Which means not everyone has to know you are wearing it. A bit more about it the Crystal Deodorant is an all natural protection, has no aluminium, no chlorohydrate, is hypoallergenic and paraben free. Honestly I do not smell anything and as for BalletGirl.
BalletGirl: If anything it smells like water and it is really easy to roll on. It is moist and makes it slimey at first but I like it. Most deodorants are powdery and leave a mess behind and this one leaves no mess. My regular one broke one time when I opened it and it went everywhere. I like this one.
As I stated we did test this out. First she used it Friday morning when she went to school, this is normally one of the times she is most shy about the way she looks and smells so it is very important. When she came home she said no one commented, which was great. Saturday we went to a Halloween party and she was running around everywhere, we put the Crystal deodorant on before going in and she lasted throughout it. Today she tried again, she is definitely making it a routine thing. I even did the smell test and she stunk before but not after she put it on. Thank goodness.

Oh and before you head to Walmart to get it for yourself or your tween you may want to print off the $1 coupon over at Crystal. Hey, every little bit saved helps right? Currently it is $3.48 which will make it $2.48 cheaper than a lot of them out there.
