Megababe Deodorant & Thigh Rescue Review

Megababe Deodorant & Thigh Rescue review

The warmer temperatures are starting to make their appearence and if you try to tell me you’re not starting to sweat 24/7, I probably won’t believe you. I mean, I am starting to have a sweat stache that is making itself my new BFF (read: permanent). It’s also usually this time of year that I do two things: 1. Wish I could be a natural deodorant (every time I try one, I almost immediately switch back to my beloved Secret deodorant *I know, I know*) type of gal, and 2. Complain about my thighs chafing together when I walk. 

Enter Megababe

After their products took the Internet by storm in 2018, I gave two of their most popular (and most well-known) products a try – the Sunny Pits Deodorant and the Thigh Rescue.

Megababe Sunny Pits Deodorant Review

Let’s face it: Finding a deodorant that has clean ingredients and actually works is hard AF. After seeing Megababe basically everywhere, I figured I’d bite the bullet and purchase the $14 deodorant on one of my many well-deserved Target runs.

Why You Should Switch to Aluminum-Free Deodorant

Antiperspirant, aka what protects against both sweat and odor, is made with aluminum. The aluminum works to block sweat ducts from producing sweat, so those toxins never release from the body (which is bad!!). By switching to an aluminum-free deodorant, you’re allowing your pits to breathe and sweat to be released from the body.

Making the Switch

The number one reason I hear from people for not switching to an aluminum-free deodorant is the in-between period where you’re either sweating constantly, smell like B.O., or both. I’m going to be very frank here: the adjustment period SUCKS. You’re stinky, sweaty, and event a little wet.

If you’re concerned about the adjustment period, I’ve heard wonderful things about the Megababe underarm mask making the process more bearable!

The Application

I’ve tried a handful of aluminum-free deodorants and one of my biggest complaints is always the application process. I want my deodorant to glide on, not feel like I’m ripping a chunk of my armpit out and once I’ve applied my deodorant, I want my armpits to glide.

Sunny pits is made with natural ingredients, including coconut, green tea, and Vitamin E, protects against bacteria & promotes healthy skin, and goes on VERY smooth. PRAISE!!

Does It Work?

Unfortunately, this wasn’t the deodorant for me. After getting passed the initial period of switching from my beloved Secret deodorant, it worked well for a few weeks before I was stinky again. I found myself having to reapply throughout the day to freshen up. Major drag! Since I first tried it in the middle of summer, I gave it another go once the weather started getting cooler and the same thing happened.

Defintely not purchasing again!

Megababe Thigh Rescue

After years and years of complaining about my thighs rubbing together and creating uncomfortable friction and wishing there was such thing as a deodorant for your thighs, Megababe came through with the best product I have ever gotten my hands on.

Why It Works

From what I’ve read, a lot of anti-chafe sticks had a powdery texture, leaving a residue behind and wearing off quickly. Megababe’s Thigh Rescue is made from natural ingredients that benefit your skin way beyond protecting it from chafe and with its balm-like texture, it creates a barrier so your thighs glide as you walk. 

You can also use it basically anywhere you’re experiencing chafing! Your arms, heels, elbows, toes…

The Ingredients

Megababe’s Thigh Rescue has 5 key ingredients — 

  • Aloe – Soothes skin with anti-inflammatory properties 
  • Pomegranate Seed Extract – Protects the outer layer of the skin & promotes cell regeneration & healing
  • Grapeseed Oil – Supplies skin-firm flavonoids to help build up collagen 
  • Ginger Roof Extract – Evens skin tone & improves elasticity 
  • Orange Oil – Provides relief from inflammation

Why I Love It

Gone are the days of painful thigh friction when wear short shorts or a dress! On days that I know I’ll be doing a lot of walking or if it’s exceptionally hot out, I always throw my Thigh Rescue stick in my purse so I can reply. I’ve even been known to apply it when inside our apartment – your girl has no time for painful irritation from her thighs bring extra cozy with one another.

    I love that this deodorant is aluminum free and works! It’s hard to find Al free deodorant, so I used my husband’s favorite brand, and it’s the only one that has worked for me so far, though it smells like Kool aid haha. I’m definitely going to go out and try this thank you!

    Alright, I’m interested. This review has me feeling like I definitely need to give these products a try. It’s impressive that you were able to make the switch during the ridiculous sweltering heat of the summer. That’s saying something! Next time I’m at Target, I’m definitely going to pick this up!
