My Italian genes have given me some beautiful benefits, like an affinity for pasta and an olive skin tone. However, Southern Italians are notoriously on the fuzzier side, so I have those genes to thank for my prevalent hair growth. Because I have an ample amount of hair, I’ve spent a lot of time at European Wax Center over the years, and while I love it there, I’d prefer to spend less time and money on waxing.
Luckily, the brand understands this and has a line of products that help minimize hair regrowth called Slow. I’m a long-time fan of the Slow Coconut Body Wash and Body Oil for full body hair-minimizing benefits and a scent that rivals Abercrombie stores in the early 2000s. Recently, I tried the European Wax Center Slow Aloe Deodorant, and I might have a new favorite.
Okay, so we know that this deodorant helps minimize hair regrowth. It does this without harmful chemicals using the narcissus bulb, aka daffodil. It slows hair regrowth in the same way it puts a daffodil into its dormancy phase, so you’ll be one with nature while using this deodorant. However, this benefit is just the tip of the iceberg because it’s also a really solid deodorant.
The balmy texture makes this deodorant a joy to put on in the morning. The long-lasting fresh aloe scent and transfer-proof formula make wearing it one of the best decisions you made all day. European Wax Center says 100-percent of people noticed a reduction in underarm odor. It also acts as skin care for your underarms, with 100-percent of people saying their skin felt soft and hydrated even 24 hours later.
How to Use:
This deodorant is great for daily use. I put it on in the morning and it sticks around all day. For people who use aluminum-free deodorant already, switching to this product will be a breeze.
However, it’s worth noting that if you’ve yet to make the switch to an aluminum-free deodorant, it’s a bit of a transition. For the first few weeks, you may sweat more as your body detoxes from the aluminum of your previous deodorant. Don’t sweat it—your underarms will soon return to their normal moisture levels, and they’ll be even healthier without harmful aluminum.
