Nature's Basin Erbaviva Jasmine Grapefruit Deodorant Review & Giveaway

I was recently asked to review organic beauty products from the website Nature's Basin.  Their website is filled with organic and all natural body products for moms and babies.

The site is easy to navigate and to quickly find whatever product you are looking for.  They have everything from makeup to children's tooth gel and everything in between including aromatherapy, makeup removers, hair shampoos, styling products, body washes, sunscreens, nursing tea, and baby lotions. 


They had asked me to review the Erbaviva Jasmine Grapefruit Deodorant.  Even though there are some organic or all natural products I use, deodorant has never been one of them.  I have always wanted to try them but I was always hesitant since I was never sure if they would work as well as they claimed to.

There is NO aluminum or pore clogging chemicals in the Erbavia deodorant.  It contains alcohol, grapefruit peel oil, cypress oil, ginger root extract, jasmine flower oil, sage oil, and other natural ingredients.


The one day I used my regular deodorant under one arm and the Erbaviva under my other arm.  I was smart enough to not put it on directly after shaving since it is largely alcohol based.  It had a strong grapefruit scent when I first applied it but the scent lightened within a few minutes and it had a distinctly feminine scent.

I was pleasantly suprised that it worked just as well if not better than my regular deodarant.  My underarm with the Erbaviva was actually drier to. It also did not stain my clothes which I had been a little worried about.  I definitely plan to continue using it.

I like that Nature's Basin has a large number of products available on their website from several different  popular brands such as Badger, Christopher Drummond, and Weleda.  Finding natural beauty products is not always easy.


They also offer guarantees that not all online retailers offer and are so committed to customer service that they went above and beyond for a customer whose order was for her mom who she couldn't be with for Mother's Day.  The owner of Nature's Basin (a mom herself) went and bought pretty brocade material to wrap the products before they mailed them to the woman's mom.  I thought that was a sweet and thoughtful thing to do.

They offer free shipping on any purchase over $45 and with every purchase you recieve 2-5 free samples of other products.  Nature's Basin also offers a lowest price guarantee.  According to their website, "If you find a lower price online for a product within 30-days of its purchase, we will refund the difference to you."  They also offer a 90-day full refund if you are unsatisfied for any reason.


Want to try Nature's Basin and their products out for yourself?

The creamy wild rose body wash sounds like it smells yummy. I love the smelly soaps.

I'd like to try the Soleo Organic Sunscreen SPF30. I have trouble finding sunscreens that don't feel greasy or oily.
