deodorant


I've been using this brand of deodorant for a couple of months now.
The container is quite small and only lasts me about a month.

When I got to the end the first time I used this, I thought, there has to be more in there...
I looked online and luckily there was someone who posted about the same brand.

On the bottom, there is a sticker.

Remove it and with a stick, you can fish out (punch out) the rest of the deodorant.
As you can see, I've collected quite a bit over the past couple of months.
Will start using from this soon.

I've wondered if Japan toiletries are small because in general, their homes and baths are smaller. Also, If they made bigger sizes, less trash, right?
I never thought of checking the deodorant for the extra stash, but I think the one I use doesn't have a roller ball, the product just pushes up. There is sort of a plastic piece that is honeycombed that holds the product and I have thought of digging out whatever is in there. Maybe I will just to see how much is left in there, but not as simple as pouring powder or liquid.

In an emergency (or if you get a rash from the chemicals in the deodorant), try baking soda. It's great for absorbing odors, and not just in the refrigerator.

I always buy men's deodorant because it's always bigger for the same price, and pretty good smells, too.
Are the sizes different in Japan? I would think so, since men and women's teacups are different sizes!

Jalna, for real yeah?!

V, I know Degree, which I buy from the US usually only has a little left at the end.

Thanks Anon!

Will check out the men's types Akiko the next time I need more, thanks for the tip!

Take care everyone.

If you just save it in an airtight container from several sticks (doesn't have to be the same brand), you can melt with some coconut oil and pour back into one of the sticks. Kind of like a free deodorant with ever 4 or 5 (or however long it takes to save a good amount.

For the record, you can also do this with soap scraps, store when completely dry in an airtight container, then melt and pour into a mold or just into a lined tin and cut it. You can do some nice mixes with adding glycerin soap chunks to the opaque type soap, add salt for buffing, some oils, whatever you want. Designer soap instead of soap waste.

Thanks for the tip Louise, we usually use up our soap bits by sticking them onto the next piece of soap.

Take care!
