Organic September: Eco by Sonya Coconut Roll-on Deodorant

Eco by Sonya Coconut Roll-on Deodorant*, £15.20/60ml

I've recently been testing out this natural, organic and vegan-friendly roll-on deodorant. I've been using a balm deodorant for some time and fancied trying out a more practical option. I love the packaging and the roll-on design of this deodorant. The scent is quite pleasant and I'd agree that it is unisex. The formula is gentle and I've experienced no irritation while using this deodorant, which is a big plus.
Unfortunately, this deodorant didn't perform as well as I'd hoped it to. Even with applying it a few times throughout the day, it didn't prevent or help to mask body odour. Yes, we've had unusually hot weather here in Scotland and I've been through some rather stressful times recently, but these are the crucial moments where you need to be able to rely on a really good deodorant! Sadly, this was not the one for me. Perhaps it would perform better during the winter months, but ideally I want a practical deodorant that works all year round. For me, this product may serve better as a quick freshen-up option when out and about or as a deodorant on quiet, do-nothing days.

  1. aww thats bad news that you didnt find it great. I am currently trying out a load of vegan deodrants.. but spoiler alert, i *think* my favourite is this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Salt-Earth-Lavender-Vanilla-Deodorant/dp/B00L94D2EW/ref=sr_1_5_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1473165100&sr=8-5&keywords=vegan+deodorant

    I found it super effective and smelt nice too!
    Hope this helps you out on your search for a more natural deodrant

    1. Hi Rachel, yes it's a shame it didn't perform too well! I've actually tried that deodorant before as well - I loved the scent, but again I didn't find it effective enough for me. I think I've found a good one now, though! xxx

  2. Ah such a shame this deodorant wasn’t as good as you’d hoped. I love that its coconut scented, and the packaging is attractive. It’s quite pricey though as well. Be nice to hear how you get on with finding a better alternative, I’m sure you will discover something just right. :-) Xx

    1. Hi Helen, yes it's rather expensive, so that's why I was expecting much more from it! Such a shame. Natural deodorants can be quite tricky! xxx
