Do you know what October is a great time for? Making the switch to an all-natural deodorant. Our long-time sponsors LoLo Body Care have the best product for when you’re ready to swap out your conventional deodorant for an aluminum-free, probiotic deodorant. LoLo’s Pitty Perfect glides on smoothly, doesn't cake or crumble, or leave white streaks.

Their effective recipe contains natural ingredients that work together to kill odor-causing bacteria and keep you smelling fresh. Choose from Bergamot, Cucumber Melon, or Lavendar Rose Geranium scents. If you prefer no scent at all, LoLo even has a version called Plain Jane. Check them all out at LoLoBody.com.
