Primally Pure {Natural Skin Care}

I won a giveaway on Instagram and received Primally Pure products to try out. Not only was it fun to open the package, but I was super excited to give the products a try.

They were amazing!

The ingredients list (the first thing I checked out) is super clean for both the deodorant and the lip balm. The second thing I noticed was the packaging - I'm a sucker for pretty products, especially ones with clean and simple lines. The third thing was the smell as I opened them up! They all smell great! Very fresh and clean, and not at all artificial or overbearing. And the fourth thing was the texture. Both the deodorant and the lip balms go on super smooth and don't get weird afterward. {I've experienced weird clumping from other brands but there is none of that here.}

But how do they hold up?

Well, the lip balms are fantastic!

The lavender lip balm lives next to my bed now, and I use it as part of my nightly routine to help me relax and wind down before turning out the lights. And as a bonus, I wake up with super soft lips each morning. The other two scents I received were mint and grapefruit. While both are wonderful, my favorite has become grapefruit. It's so nourishing and I don't have to worry about licking my lips because I know it only has good-for-me ingredients. It leaves and nice sheen that lasts, but without feeling heavy or greasy.

The deodorant also receives my seal of approval.

I do CrossFit, and I get sweaty. Like, really sweaty.

Before, after a normal session, droplets run down my face, arms and legs. My clothes are soaked. My hair is a mess. And I smell bad.

Now, after a normal session, droplets run down my face, arms and legs. My clothes are soaked. My hair is a mess. And I smell like tea tree oil. It's a miracle! I had been using homemade deodorant before, and while it worked okay, I had to be careful not to forget to reapply some before going to CrossFit. Primally Pure deodorant? No worries. I put it on in the morning before going to work and it keeps me smelling great until well after my CrossFit session in the evening. 

{The hubster is more than pleased with how well this deodorant works - he used to avoid me after CrossFit it was so bad!}

I am dying to try this deodorant....the lemongrass one sounds divine ;) follow both of you on Instagram to a stalkerish degree hahah @slightlylostgirl

    1. LOL I don't know about the other times, but this comment worked at least 😉 Good luck!

  2. Hi I would love to win this giveaway, have been trying to find a good natural deodorant! I reposted and am following on instagram (I am @tommisuzanne).

  3. Oooookay, so this is like the fifth time I'm writing this, and the first four times my message was awesome. Seriously, it would make you pee a wee bit. That's how awesome it was!
    This time, I'm just going to sum up:
    1. @slightlylost girl and I seem to both be stalkers. Odd, but maybe we should form a group for people like us.
    2. I have a hard time finding clean products in Dubai aaaand selfishly just reaaaally want to try Primally Pure's goodies.
    3. The point that really drove how just how badly I need these goodies was the hubster story.nso glad he us more inclined to be near you post-crossfit. Awesome.
    4. This is much more difficult than it would seem.
    5. I'm totally copying thus message so I don't have to type it out again.

    1. FINALLY!!
      Although, I had to "answer" questions in Arabic... So if I suddenly disappear, I may have been solid into the black market here. Just FYI. #thestruggleisreal

    2. Oh my gosh, best comment EVER! 😂😂😂
