The majority of our Deep Reviews will feature our editors’ honest, ultra-hot takes on entire product categories or multiple products from a particular beauty brand, but every so often, we’ll sprinkle in a special single-product format called Honestly, I Love It. As the name suggests, these reviews will hone in on one standout beauty formula our editors quite literally can’t shut up about. This time around, I’m highlighting Glossier’s Deodorant ($22).
I’ve always prided myself on being a good judge of products that will make a difference in my lifestyle. It’s always a plus when one of those products may also make a difference in my environment. In the past few years, the beauty industry has made notable strides toward taking environmental responsibility. More brands have begun to create clean beauty products that are fully refillable, reusable, and recyclable, cutting down waste and promoting a system that relies on the participation of their consumers to shift the narrative.
One of the brands that has done this especially well is Glossier, with the recent release of its natural, aluminum-free deodorant. It comes fully assembled with a reusable deodorant stick and case with clear instructions on how to make the best of your product (including switching out your finished deodorant stick for another without needing to toss the whole thing away). Whether consumers decide to fully participate in this effort is up to them, but it does feel good knowing that there are options to change our habits when it comes to shopping for products we use every day.
When I’m on the hunt for a deodorant, one of the biggest things I look for is longevity. What good is a deodorant that’s aesthetically pleasing and smells good if it doesn’t actually last? I’m sure a lot of people have had the experience of reapplying deodorant throughout the day to combat odor and perspiration. I can personally attest to the matter, as I’m always on the move, and unfortunately, I have a wardrobe that’s at least 95% white and cream. That’s right: Deodorant stains have no mercy on your gorgeous garments. That’s where Glossier’s Deodorant comes in.
