Do These Green Beauty Products Really Work?
THE CLAIM With fragrant essential oils, this Weleda liquid deodorant ($13; weleda.com) neutralizes stinky odors without using aluminum or chemical preservatives.
EXPERT OPINION The ingredient farnesol is an antibacterial, says Wilson: By controlling bacteria, there's nothing to cause a bad aroma. So even though Weleda is not an antiperspirant, its natural ingredients and alcohols will keep your sweat from causing a stench.
OUR VERDICT We had doubts, but a few spritzes of this mist left us smelling fresh—even after a half-hour of Pilates and a 12-hour workday. It came on strong and citrusy, but the aroma died down after 20 minutes. Bonus: It's not designed as a sweat-blocker, but one tester felt more dry than soggy throughout the day.
