Product alert: Fancy deodorant inspired by monks

Glamorous deodorant may seem like an oxymoron, but think again because a pretty fabulous deodorant awaits you. It's actually inspired by ingredients originally selected by monks.

Which means I consider this deodorant a holy roll-on.

It comes from Le Couvent des Minimes, a fancy hotel and spa in the South of France that used to be a convent way back in the 17th century. The deodorant is called Eau des Minimes Everyday Deodorant With Alum Stone and it boasts ingredients like citrus extracts and rosemary as well as the alum stone which is known to be used in other natural deodorants.

Apparently the nuns and monks were onto something because people love this deodorant, especially those with sensitive skin.

This five-star hotel and spa also offers a variety of other glamorous, plant-based products that pay homage to the history of the monks' practice. Plus, the facility looks absolutely stunning, so let's all pray for more vacation days so we can visit.
