This is an interesting product from Thai brand, Erb, and something I haven’t come across before – an underarm detox mask. I’m so anti the beauty market propaganda on having ‘beautiful’ armpits and making a ‘problem’ where there never really was one, but this is a little different because its more about deep cleansing. I think if you are, as most of us are, using deodorant every day then the underarm area is bound to get a little bit clogged up – I hadn’t even considered this before but I suppose its obvious – and I like the idea of deep cleanse.
The product itself actually smells a bit like toothpaste! It’s got guava leaf, tamarind and white clay and obviously, it’s quite an intrusive thing to use so best done pre-shower. It feels very fresh under the arms and while there is exfoliating action (from tamarind) for brightening, it’s far more useful for avoiding ingrowing hairs. Your pits definitely feel very fresh and soft afterwards.
It’s not a life essential, but I think it’s a good addition to general skin maintenance – and it’s all certified organic. It’s £17 HERE.

This is such an unusal product but actually quite a nice idea!

I like the sound of this, I wax my underarm and I think giving the a detox is a good idea never seen this before, thank you for sharing xxx
Now I know what to do with the face masks I didn’t like.
This is one of the most ridiculous products i’ve ever seen! Who’s to say the skin gets clogged up from deodorant?! Surely if you wash thoroughly every shower (and most of us are shaving regularly too) your skin will be perfectly clean? Otherwise you’d have blocked pores and couldnt sweat properly etc. I don’t see how you can dismiss some products like this and not others?
As I say, it’s not a life essential.. I quite liked having minty armpits for a moment or two… deodorant kind of is essential and I do object to big brands with big campaigns making us feel there is something wrong with our underarms when there isn’t. It’s not a big brand and it’s actually based on Thai rituals where purification is part of a beauty ritual. It’s completely optional and I liked the novelty of it.
