Green Goo 100% All Natural Deodorant

Author: Healthnuttxo

 

Green Goo…what exactly is Green Goo? This is an all-natural deodorant that is herbally infused, that aims at not only being gentle on the skin but also high performance. According to the box, it does not contain petroleum, paragons, propylene glycol, phthalates, mineral oil, or any artificial ingredients/fragrances.

I am skeptical about natural deodorants, I will admit. I am skeptical about deodorants in general. I work hard, I am gone for most of the day, and I definitely sweat when I am at the gym. So I need something that’s going to work as hard as I do, in terms of preventing sweat stains and odors.

I decided to give this a try before some cardio and weight lifting session at the gym. Risky for a first try, but we did it. Not exactly sure why it is called “Green Goo”, bc it is neither green nor “gooey”,,, but let us proceed.

It was a bit “pasty” going on, and left a very mild white residue on arm pit area, that dissipated quickly. It wasn’t exactly “easy” to apply, you really had to rub it on, and since it was such a small tube I felt I had to “cover my arm pit” a few times rather than just a simple swipe with a traditional style of deodorant. I wore it all day and did not use any other type of deodorant. I did not experience any sweat stains or odors, which in my opinion was pretty dang awesome. Also, no irritation.

I gave it another try on a different day. This was a very stressful day, mentally moreso than physically. I noticed the deodorant did not hold up as well on this day. Definitely sweat more (probably induced from stress-related hormones!) and I noticed I needed to re-apply so odor did not peak through.

I tried this again on a third day, and had a similar experience. Mild sweating, and mild odor breakthrough that required re-application. I also used this after shaving, and definitely had irritation. So if you do use this, I would advise waiting a bit to apply if you shaved.

So overall, I had some inconsistent feedback with this particular product so I am not sure how I feel about it. One day it worked great, but other days it failed to provide the protection and sweat-fighting abilities that I really need in a deodorant. For that reason, I will give it 3 stars.

AZO Urinary Tract Defense

Author: Healthnuttxo

Urinary Tract Infections (UTI’s) are well… a pain. While they happen most commonly in women, it is totally possible for a man to have a UTI as well.

AZO has come out with a product to “control the infection” as well as provide some pain relief for when a UTI hits and you have to wait to see the doctor. NOTE: This product is NOT a replacement for going to the doctor! A UTI is an infection, and often requires medication from a doctor or physician assistant, so PLEASE if you think you have a UTI, seek medical attention!

AZO’s Urinary Tract Defense contains Methenamine, which is antibacterial, (thus preventing the “spread of the infection”), as well as Sodium Salicylate, which is an NSAID analgesic (pain reliever).  Here are some facts below:

I am presenting this product however I did not use it (which I suppose is fortunate for me!). However, UTI’s are common in Diabetics, so this is a good product for me to have on hand (always ask a doctor first if you are Diabetic/have any medical conditions).

The pills are small, and there are 24 of them, all in a sealed, air tight package. You are instructed to take 2 pills, 3 x per day, with a full glass of water for adults and children 12 years of age and older. I like that the pills are small, and they appear somewhat “candy coated”, making them even easier to swallow (at least in in my opinion).

Again, I did not use this product directly, however, I have used similar AZO products in the past, and did have positive results, so I do not foresee an issue with this product. Always good to keep on hand…you never know when a painful UTI will strike!
