The Battle of the Body Odor Busters: Native vs. Lume

Updated: Feb 1

In the realm of aluminum-free and vegan, cruelty-free deodorants, the clash between Lume and Native unfolds like an epic saga. Join me as I recount my quest for the ultimate body odor conqueror, revealing which brand emerged victorious in making my body odor surrender.

When it comes to battling the forces of body odor, the search for the perfect deodorant is a journey many have embarked upon. In this exploration, I found myself torn between Lume and Native deodorants. However, in the ultimate quest for freshness, Native emerged as the undisputed champion. Let's delve into the comparison and discover why Native has become my go-to guardian against stink.

1. Scent That Lasts:

While Lume offers a variety of scents, Native steals the spotlight with scents that not only captivate but endure. From Coconut & Vanilla to Cucumber & Mint, the delightful fragrances linger throughout the day, providing a continuous shield against unwelcome odors. In addition, I didn't care for the smell of Lume's Clean Tangerine. It had a strange almost chemical smell I couldn't quite place.

2. Long-Lasting Protection:

Native's formula boasts exceptional longevity, keeping me confidently fresh from dawn to dusk. Whether tackling a busy day at the office or a strenuous workout session, Native stands resilient in its mission to ward off any unpleasant odors. I wish I could say the same for Lume but it didn't keep me smelling nearly as fresh throughout the day.

3. Ingredient Transparency:

Native's commitment to clean ingredients is a game-changer. With no aluminum, parabens, or sulfates, Native ensures that my underarms are treated with care. The transparency in their ingredient list aligns with my preference for conscious and natural choices.

4. Smooth Application:

The smooth and creamy application of Native glides effortlessly, leaving no residue or stickiness. This seamless application contributes to a comfortable and irritation-free experience, unlike some experiences I had with Lume's application.

In the battle of the deodorants, Native emerges as the victor, providing an unparalleled combination of enduring scents, long-lasting protection, ingredient transparency, and a smooth application process. While Lume may have its merits, my personal journey has led me to trust Native as the steadfast guardian of freshness.

So, if you're on the hunt for a deodorant that not only keeps you smelling sweet but also uses clean ingredients, Native is the clear winner in this showdown.
