Lavanila the Healthy Deodorant Sport Luxe

Lavanila the Healthy Deodorant Sport Luxe Review
I wanted to share my Lavanila the Healthy Deodorant Sport Luxe review with you. Now, I live in Florida. It’s hot and humid here. I sweat a ton, especially at the gym. However, I never want to be stinky. I have tried a LOT of natural deodorants, and the ones that have performed best for me are by Lavanila. Lavanila is known for their all-natural, organic, healthy, cruelty free and vegan products.

I typically use the regular Lavanila Healthy Deodorant in Fresh Vanilla Lemon as my daily deodorant if I’m working from home and not going out in public. It lasts between 6 to 8 hours for me before I need to reapply it. With the Sport Luxe, it covers me for 10 to 12 hours before I need to reapply, which makes me happy. I’ll definitely be using the Sport Luxe from now on. I now rarely feel the need to break out an antiperspirant, which is a big deal for me because I never thought I’d be able to transition to only using aluminum free deodorant.

The Sport Luxe feels like a more traditional antiperspirant/deodorant when applied. It’s white and soothing, and glides right on the skin. Normally when your deodorant has a white base it will give your shirts a slight white residue, so I’m happy that’s not the case here. It’s also an Allure 2015 Best of Beauty winner.

The scent is called Vanilla Breeze. It’s described as white jasmine with honeydew, apple and powdery vanilla. It smells very floral to me, so not my favorite scent at all. I prefer my Fresh Vanilla Lemon, but since it works so well for me, I can forgive it the floral notes.

For those concerned with aluminum or parabens, this doesn’t contain either. It has something that Lavanila calls SmartSport, so it supposed release scents over time to keep you smelling good for longer than the regular deodorant. I’m a fan!

So what I love about it:

  • That it really works!
  • That it doesn’t stain my clothes.
  • That it’s aluminum free.
  • That it doesn’t irritate my skin.
  • The great ingredients.

What I dislike about it:

  • The scent isn’t my favorite.
  • The price. The $16 price point is hard for a lot of people to swallow for deodorant when they’re used to paying $6.99 for Certain Dri antiperspirant.

If you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional antiperspirants or deodorants and want something that will keep you smelling good for 10 to 12 hours, give Lavanila the Healthy Deodorant Sport Luxe a try. I’m really happy with it. I’m hoping they’re make it in my favorite Fresh Vanilla Lemon scent in the future!

What’s your favorite cruelty free deodorant?

  • I have been using Lavanilla for years. I feel like when buying a $6.99 tube of deo, it lasts 2 to 3 months. And a tube of Lavanilla lasts 4 to 6 months for me. So the price breakdown is about the same. I will have to try the sport luxe. If i can handle the scent(i have allergies to scents). My top fave scents: vanilla coconut, there was a limited edition fragrance for summer a few years ago vanilla summer, and pink grapefruit. The limited edition vanilla summer was amazing. And my absolute fave. I wish they would make it an all the time scent.

  • I’d probably like this scent, but I love all things lemon, so now I don’t know which one to try first! I really like that it’s long-lasting.

  • Hmm, the scent…I wish there were a variety of scents available. I think I might try the regular one and put it to the three digit Phoenix summer test.

  • I really want to try this one-it is SOOOOO hard for me to imagine getting away from a traditional anti-perspirant, I tried the Schmid’s Lime(since I love Lime) and that may be fine for home, but it does not work going out and doing stuff, like many of your readers, so hard to get out of the anti-perspirant, like you I’m really into being and feeling hygenic and smelling fresh, and I get very sweaty, and it’s not humid here-in Lebanon it definitely was humid, mostly there was a breeze since it’s still Spring until late May, although there were three days that were killer(summer there is worse than FL if you can imagine! I ran out of my stuff so in the pharmacies there, they have a lot of non antiperspirants, so I had to go with a traditional antiperspirant/deo spray. Since you live in FL and you are pretty much starting summer and this works, I definitely will give it a try! I like that you said it has that cool feel and the white base, and that it worked for 10-12 hours. Worth a try, $16 isn’t bad compared to some I’ve seen and now with the sale, a good time. I too wish they’d make it into the Vanilla Lemon!

    • You will still sweat, which is hard to get used to, but you’re not stinky, so that makes it easier. So like, for events where I don’t want to sweat, I’ll still use Certain Dri

  • I have actually been thinking about buying this brand. I think my trip to Sephora got another item! Thanks for the comprehensive review ☆

  • I’ll be in an American Sephora this week, so the review is right on time! I tried a few natural deodorants so far but never really liked the smell or they just didn’t work for me. I will definitely see if I can sniff it! 🙂

  • The only one I’ve tried is the Lemon Vanilla and I liked that a lot. I’m not sure though that I could tolerate the floral scent.

  • I tried the original formula but it definitely did not work for me. Did you have an initial adjustment period? Maybe I gave up too soon but two weeks was all I could take:)

    • Yes, and I still wear aluminum antiperspirants at times, like when I have to be dressed up.

  • I’ve been using aluminum-free deodorants for several years now, and it’s definitely been a hard transition, but now I sweat a LOT less in general. I still use an antiperspirant occasionally for special events, when I simply cannot afford to sweat a drop 🙂

    • I feel like every time I go to aluminum free, I sweat more! but I tell myself it’s natural and just reapply as necessary.

  • I’ve been trying to switch off of antiperspirants but it’s been a tough road. I found one by an indie(Skin Food by Aubrey) brand that actually worked well for me, like your reasons above, but found that after about 3 days I’d get a rash. I now think it’s the baking soda. The LaVanila has baking soda listed way down the ingredients so maybe it would be easier on my skin. I’m now using an indie brand called Fat and the Moon, they have one that doesn’t have baking soda. So far it’s doing pretty well for me. Does the LaVanila have a strong scent? Idk why but strong perfume scents from my pits annoys me hahaha
