Customer's Journey With Smood: @lazyknee

We decided to start this new section whereby we share about our customer's experience with the brand and their journey with natural deodorant!

Her Experience

Her Honest Thoughts

Can you share more about yourself?

A: Hello! My name is Britney, I’m 20 and I’ve been eco-conscious since May 2020! I still consider myself a beginner because I think there’s still so much to learn about being low-waste and habits that need to be reinforced.

I’m very passionate about it since discovering this lifestyle and also hope to encourage and bring awareness to others about the small steps towards a low-waste lifestyle, no matter how small a step!

What problems did you face before using our deodorant?

A: Honestly I do feel that commercial deodorants are mostly antiperspirants that don't allow your underarms to “breathe”. I also remember trying out other natural deodorants before but they all come with so much packaging waste that is all thrown away at the end of its life cycle.

How did you find out about our brand?

A: It was such a great moment to find _the one_ because Smood is pretty much as low-waste as it gets. I found the brand through your stockists thesustainabilityproject and ertha while I was looking for online stores that promoted eco-conscious products during circuit breaker.

That was kind of a break through moment for me and Smood was amongst the first 2 products that made my first step into the sustainability lifestyle because I thought this could be the easy swap to start with!

What do you like the most about our deodorant?

A: As I mentioned, it's as low-waste as it gets, just a paper to hold your deodorant and the rest are repurposed materials! When I started out using natural deodorants, I gotta say I was shocked at how much my underarms still sweat because I wasn't aware of the difference between antiperspirants and deodorants.

I had to do plenty of research (which Smood’s blog posts also helped a ton) on the normalities of natural deodorant. Even figuring out how to hold it and apply was a bit of a struggle because, after some time, the deodorant got soft. I found a metal bottle cover and used that to hold the deodorant when it gets too soft to apply directly and need to use my fingertips! I must say, there is a learning curve but it is worth it!

What do you like the most about our deodorant?

Its longevity!! my first bar of Smood’s deodorant really lasted me 5 months and that's with me putting it on almost every day, and a generous amount too! (cause I really wanted to open a new bar, 🤣 opening new products always excites me because I feel like I'm making so much progress!) But seriously though, 5 months and only $8, I think its a really good deal, plus considering all the excessive packaging we are saving by supporting local and a brand that is also eco-conscious (uh, score??!)

Any tips to share with other customers?

A: Just try it and do your research before making the purchase, so if you’re reading this now, then good on you!

I find that this is one of the easiest swaps I had to make and have no regrets. Smood now even offers a smaller $5 bar for those who are afraid of committing, which is so thoughtful and I believe helpful to beginners!

Plus they are very active and friendly on social media to answer to your queries so I wouldn't worry about having problems and awkwardly having no one to ask about trying out new deodorant.


Thank you for sharing, @lazyknee :)
