Review: Wild - Refillable Natural Deodorant

I originally reviewed Wild Refillable Natural Deodorant, since then I have purchased a new case and three more refills. After using it for well over a year I would still recommend this. I have a code for a free case if you want to give it a go as well here.

Over the past year I used the silver case, since then I bought an all black case which I much prefer. They also now do engraving to the lid which I didn't get.

Cotton and Sea Salt
Lavender Haze
Coconut Dreams

Both Coconut Dreams and Lavender Haze are very similar to the previous three scents I have tried, they smell vaguely of essential oils and once wearing them I couldn't smell the scent on me. However they also made it so I didn't smell of anything which is what you want from a deodorant.

That said I found Cotton and Sea Salt was very strongly scented of cotton in the pack, this scent also lingered on me as well which is different from the previous five scents I have tried.

They also seem to release seasonal limited scents, Lemon Meringue and Toffee Apple. Another update would be they have updated some of their scents such as Mint Fresh is now Mint and Eucalyptus and Orange Zest is now Jasmine and Mandarin Blossom.

Review: Wild - Refillable Natural Deodorant

Bought myself some refillable deodorant to try out, I have a 20% off code if you want to give it a go as well (here). Wanted to do a review because I couldn't find many online when I was looking it up. I've been using Wild Natural Deodorant for a year now.

I got the scents
Mint Fresh
Orange Zest
Bergamot Rituals

All three scents smell quite like essential oils, I couldn't smell anything specific from all three of them especially when wearing them.

I have been wanting to incorporate more reusable items in to my life, less single use plastics and products in general. The process started in 2007, so definitely a journey!

Wild is a 100% natural deodorant, vegan and cruelty free, paraben and aluminium free.

The idea is you have a case which comes in different colours and then you buy refills once you've used it up. The refills themselves come in cardboard which can be recycled.

Wild is more of a soft bar type of deodorant, similar to dry deodorant sticks.

Does it work?
I have found that using this deodorant is very similar to my old Sure Aquastick, of the scents I have used I couldn't smell any of them on me once applied. However I also don't smell, I've used this product for a year and throughout the four seasons I found it worked well. 

What about staining?
Apparently it is the aluminium that stains lighter clothes so this doesn't do that, but I don't wear light colours so can't comment on it staining white.

What about white marks?
I only wear black and so can comment on this one! I have found doing two swipes on each armpit is enough so I don't smell but it also as far as I have noticed left any white marks on my clothes.

Would I recommend it?
If you are used to the format of a dry stick rather than a traditional roll on then the switch to this is very easy. They keep bringing new scents out too to try something different. I have recommended it to friends, I think it's an easy swap to something more environmentally friendly.
