I discovered the Dischem Deodorant Crystal a couple of months ago. I was browsing the deodorant aisle at Dischem, searching for a reasonably priced, natural, chemical free deodorant, when I happened to find this wonderful range.
I had been using my homemade deodorant, which is lovely, but felt like I needed a bit of a change, you know, change is fun.
