Five weeks ago on Instagram I posted about a natural deodorant I was trailing from a brand called Black Chicken.  A brand by Chey Birch that was dreamt up in 1989 in Bondi, Australia.  Chey's main concern and reason for creating these beautiful products is that we apply so many products containing damaging chemicals and synthetic fragrances to our skin.  She wanted to find a way to reduce the chances of developing chronic health conditions, to assist the body in a natural way and harness the therapeutic power of natural oils to enhance wellbeing, physically and spiritually.  Something Libby and I are very passionate about, so naturally Black Chicken was a brand I wanted to know a bit more about.

Since my Instagram picture I have used the deodorant every day and am so impressed I have dedicated a whole blog post to some of their favourite products I since have gone on to use.

This new deodorant paste is a remedial and chemical free deodorant formulated to neutralise underarm odour instantly and keep you fresh without inhibiting your sweat glands ability to dispel toxins often found in unwanted fat.  The Axila paste ticks all boxes and the tub is small enough to carry around in your handbag.  I hear time and time again that natural deodorants do not work.  I can promise you that this does, it exceeded every expectation I had and will be a staple in my house from now on.

Why is the Axila deodorant paste so good?

• Contains only natural and certified organic ingredients

• Neutralises odour fast

• Lasts all day whether in the office or working out (yup, I have been to bikram, brisk walks and been stuck in a hot stuffy office - no smell)

• A deodorant paste that is invisible after application (rub a pea size amount under your arm pits and it disappears, no stained clothes)

• Aluminium free, alcohol free, paraben free

• Blended with pure essential oils

• Vegan and not tested on animals

Another Black Chicken product I have tried is their Complexion Polish, It's a powder exfoliant made with rice powder, argan shell and clay, which you mix with a little warm water to create a slightly coarse paste. Rub into dampened skin for a minute and voila...dull build-up removed to reveala smoother, renewed complexion.

Again, no additives, fillers, preservatives and NO plastic micro beads - they are a cause for concern! Not just for ladies, this scrub is fantastic for men pre face shave and helps to reduce ingrown hairs.

Their last product I have absolutely fallen in love with is their Love Your Face Serum.  Having dry skin I am serum obsessed.  My skin laps the goodness up and when applied at night I wake up with the smoothest skin.  This serum is anti ageing, super hydrating and plumps the skin.  You can use this morning and night, I like to use this before I put on make up as it hydrates my skin and foundation glides on and stays looking fresh all day.

There are 11 therapeutic oils in this serum, 98% certified organic ingredients, no parabens, petrochemicals and no artificial ingredients.

Vitamin E Oils, Apricot Kernel Oil, Jojoba Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Argan Oil, Rosehip Oil, Neroli Essentil Oil, Palma Rosa Essential Oil, Rose Maroc Absolute Oil, Ylang Ylang and Sandalwood Essential Oil.
