Product Review: Megababe Deodorant

Megababe Rosy Pits Daily Deodorant

What does self-care look like while in quarantine? For me, it has been sweaty Bar Method classes via Zoom, followed by a refreshing shower that feels oh so good and a few swipes of Megababe Rosy Pits Daily Deodorant ($14). In my quest to try different natural deodorants, I picked up this new-to-me product during my last trip to Seattle, before COVID-19. Megababe Rosy Pits has since become one of my favourite body care essentials.

As far as looks, scent, and texture go, Megababe delivers a sensory product experience that sparks joy. The sweet yet slightly retro packaging (pink screw-top cap, 70s font, turquoise and orange accents) looks great in my medicine cabinet. It has a powdery rose scent—clean, floral, not too strong—that fades within 1-2 hours. I don't need heavy-duty odor protection (thank you, Asian genes), just a little something to keep me from smelling stale or sweaty or less than fresh, and Megababe has delivered in that respect. The gel-like solid also applies nicely, gliding on in a thin layer with zero white residue or crumbling.

Its ingredients list is impressive for natural deodorant newbies, but is basic table stakes for the rest of us. The cruelty-free formula has no baking soda (no irritation!), aluminum, or parabens. Hero ingredients include aloe, coconut oil, corn starch, and vitamin E alongside a slew of natural extracts. At $14 USD, it's pricier than a drugstore deodorant or antiperspirant and about average for a natural deodorant. However, the formula goes on so thinly that it lasts a surprisingly long time (I've had mine for months now and I've barely used it). All the better for me to enjoy that post-shower "I smell like roses!" moment.
