Product Review: LAVANILA Sport Luxe Deodorant

I heard about this deodorant from one of Jaclyn Hill's monthly favorites videos, and if you read my post the other day about the best beauty vloggers to follow, then you know how much I love and trust Jaclyn's opinion.

Let's just say she got this product a little wrong.. in my opinion.

I watched this monthly favorite video around the time of the Sephora VIB sale, so I was looking for some good products to purchase. One of my pet peeves is smelling bad, so I am always on the lookout for the best smelling and lasting deodorant. In her video, Jaclyn raved about this Lavinila deodorant, she said it smelled incredible and that it was sport luxe so it was her favorite deodorant to take the the gym. I jumped on the opportunity to purchase this product and didn't even think twice about the $16 price tag on a DEODORANT.

When my package came in the mail, out of everything that I ordered, I was the most excited to try the deodorant. I started using it right away, loving the way it smelled (like fresh, amazing laundry) and the way it felt when applied - like a gel deodorant, a little harder, but not as wet. I could even smell myself and how good I smelt after applying it, which I love when deodorants do. I was telling everyone about it, I was so excited! I even let one of my little cousins try it after a track meet when we were on the way to the mall.

Fast forward a few hours, we are still at the mall and we both notice a smell. We check our armpits and OH MY GOODNESS do we SMELL! Like straight up B.O. We start dying laughing because she smelled better after her track meet than she did after wearing the deodorant for about two hours.

To make this long story a little shorter, I refused to let this product go to waste; I spent $16 on it. I thought about returning it because I was that disappointed in the product, but I was too lazy. I still use it, and it works okay if I remember to reapply about every hour. If not, a B.O. scent will start to creep up on you until you full on smell like sweat.

I should mention that this is a natural deodorant, so this is totally expected coming from a natural deodorant, but I was shocked at the results because Jaclyn raved so much about this product.

I have not tried any other Lavanila products, but I actually want to just to see if I get the same results from the other deodorants. I really did love the smell, but the outcome was just not worth smelling good for such a small amount of time.


  1. Geez what a bad experience! Don't you hate the feeling of paying a lot for something that ends up being terrible?!

    I wish I could remember the name of the deodorant my friend Britt was raving about the other day... It's natural, around 4 dollars, and smells amazing from what I remember. She finally found a good one after a few she described as making her "smell like a hippie" haha. I will have to ask her!

  2. Sorry about the bad experience. It's even more unfortunate when you think it will work wonders because of the price tag and it just doesnt perform!
