I live in Bahrain, a very hot country most of the year round, I am a wife and mother and I teach Pilates too. I am busy. Like most other women, I try to look my best and that means smelling good too!
I try to live a healthy lifestyle, not just for myself, but to be an example to my children. It does help that I love vegetables! But I firmly believe that what we put on our skin is as important as the food we eat.
Over the years I have lost count of the 'alternative' deodorants I have tried and the money I have wasted along the way. The thing is, 'Green' beauty and skincare products shouldn't be an alternative...they should be the only alternative. Chemicals that disrupt hormones and can lead to all sorts of health issues should not be in our skincare.
It is a topic of conversation that comes up from time to time with my Pilates clients and friends alike. We are all in search of clean beauty and cosmetic products, free of harsh chemicals and toxins. Out of all the fabulous 'green' products I have found, an effective deodorant, that smells beautiful, looks good on the bathroom shelf AND works had seemed impossible to find.
Until recently, when I tried Agent Nateur! Wow! Lured in by the beautiful simplicity of the packaging - clean and fresh, I hope the contents would be too and I bought it immediately.
I have not been disappointed...the smell is subtle but also clean and fresh with hints of lavender and eucalyptus. It comes in a wind up stick and glides on nicely. And you don't need a ton for it to be effective. As soon as I got home I washed and applied but it was the afternoon. It was still working the next morning...really. This could be it, this could be the one. Yippee! I used it that morning - which was the REAL test. IT WORKED! And has continued to perform since.
I so admire these women who decide to go it alone and make something not only for themselves and their own health but for the rest of us, and who in turn help us, other women, out.
It is a fabulous product, so it is no wonder that Jena Covello, founder of Agent Nateur, is named as one of L.A.'s coolest Natural Beauty Gurus! It's not hard to see why.
