Happy Monday, everybody!
I’m working with Kopari today and will be talking about a product that is absolutely necessary for so many of us: deodorant. Notice I didn’t say all of us, because I know there are some of you out there that are able to not use deodorant with great results. I am not one of those people, but SERIOUS RESPECT to all of you who are. Haha!
Today I will be highlighting Kopari’s natural coconut deodorant that I’ve been using (and LOVING!) for almost 6 months now. And I’ve got a 25% OFF code at the bottom of the post for those of you that want to try it for the first time!
I first fell in love with Kopari’s all natural deodorant back in June of this year. Do you remember my first post with Kopari? I reviewed several of their products and talked about giving and receiving compliments, and how receiving compliments is often hard for women to do. The post sparked a great conversation, and it encouraged many of us to do a better job of graciously accepting nice things that are said to us!
In preparation for that June post, I ordered many Kopari products to try for myself. I absolutely loved several of them and continue to use them, but it’s the deodorant that I loved the most and continue to use daily. (Click back to this post if you would like to read my full reviews on the other Kopari products I’ve tried.)

When talking about the deodorant, in addition to the fact that IT WORKS, there’s a lot of additional information that Kopari and I want you to know!
They want to educate consumers on the aluminum found in many deodorants on the market and the potential negative side effects the aluminum can have on your body, so they launched the #TheTruthStinks campaign to help get the word out! Kopari wants everybody to know that there are cleaner and better options available. And they are hoping that once people know the truth, they will consider making a switch.
So, I’ve got a little Aluminum 101 crash course for all of us.
WHY ALUMINUM IS BAD
Here’s what I’ve learned: Aluminum found in deodorants blocks your sweat glands, preventing you from sweating. This might sound good, but it’s not at all! Sweating is the body’s natural way to expel toxins, and aluminum prevents your body from doing so. And since there are healthier alternatives that are aluminum free, why not try one of those?!? You don’t need aluminum to fight the funk! YOU JUST NEED COCONUTS! #coconutstotherescue #coconutpower
KOPARI DEODORANT BENEFITS
The Kopari coconut deodorant is clean, non-toxic, AND IT ACTUALLY WORKS! The aluminum and baking soda free deodorant works with your body’s natural functions to aid in odor reduction. Their invisible formula glides on smoothly and you will smell fresh as a coconut (there is also a fragrance free version)! The unique blend of coconut water, coconut oil, and sage oil will condition and soothe even the most sensitive underarms. Just think of it as skincare for your pits!
Kopari’s deodorant is Vegan, aluminum free, baking soda free, paraben free, silicone free, and phtlalate free. And it addition to all of the healthful benefits, I love that the clear formula goes on smooth without leaving a sticky, white residue. And it doesn’t stain clothes.
And y’all. It smells so good.
Key Ingredients Include The Following
Coconut Oil: Naturally antimicrobial and anti-bacterial. It nourishes, hydrates, and protects even the most sensitive skin!
100% Plant-based active: A natural, non-toxic active that provides odor protection while simultaneously warding off the bacteria that causes it in the first place.
Sage Oil: Helps to aid in sweat and odor reduction.
Coconut water: Packed with electrolytes, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. This super water is key to hydrating and fine tuning your skin’s every day functions!
And here’s the fun stuff ya’ll! Kopari’s all natural deodorant won the 2018 Allure BEST OF BEAUTY award, and it has over 1,700 5 STAR REVIEWS. Read the Allure mention HERE, and read a Cosmopolitan mention HERE.
AND CHECK THIS OUT! Kopari will donate $1 for every Coconut Deodorant sold during the month of October to the F Cancer organization (@letsfcancer). HOW AMAZING IS THAT!
Are you new to clean deodorant? If you are, it’s possible that you are going to need to give yourself time to acclimate. I didn’t have any reactions, and it started working on me the very first day I used it! However, I have heard stories of people needing to detox first.
PUT YOUR PITS ON A COCONUT CLEANSE
Here’s what to expect if your pits need to detox:
Stage 1: “I’m sweaty and a little smelly.” Your pores are starting to detox and are somewhat plugged.
Stage 2: “The funk is real.” Your pits are in full purge mode. Just wash up buttercup!
Stage 3: “Smelling better.” Babe, you got this. Keep up the detox, your pits are still purging.
Stage 4: “Clean as a coconut.” Smelling fresh, sweating less, detox finished.

I’ve got 3 final pieces of information to share with you today!
1. KOPARI HAS a SUBSCRIPTION PROGRAM
If you subscribe to Kopari’s auto replenishment, they will refill your Kopari favorites automatically in the selected time frame of your choice! For the deodorant, you can choose every 1, 2, or 3 months – and I would suggest every 3 months. My deodorant lasted a bit over 3 months. Simply choose the replenishment schedule that works for you, and in return you will get free shipping on all subscription orders FOR LIFE! And don’t worry about cancelling. If you need to cancel, change, or pause the service…that can be done at any time!
2. You can receive 25% OFF your 1st time deodorant purchase or your 1st time deodorant subscription. Code: SHEAFFER25
3. Kopari has EASY RETURNS and a 100% satisfaction guarantee! Click HERE to see how easy it is to initiate a return if you’re not fully satisfied.
And I wanted to end today’s post with a graphic I put together of what some other Sheaffer Told Me To readers think about their experience with Kopari! I put a call out on ig stories to share thoughts on the deodorant, and I got at least 50 responses, so the below graphic is just a handful of what I received. So many of y’all love the deodorant just as much as I do! I did get some “it didn’t work for me” responses as well (I’m thinking those readers might have needed to go through the detox I spoke of above), but with the 100% satisfaction guarantee and easy returns, trying it is no risk!
These are some Kopari favorites, just click on what you are interested in! I just ordered and am very anxious to try the coconut lip scrub and the new coconut shower oil for myself!
A huge thank you to Kopari for sponsoring this post and for making amazing products that are all natural, healthy, and THAT WORK!
Erika Slaughter says
I’m a Kopari deodorant user and am so glad I made the switch!!
Shay Shull says
Yes, yes, yes to the all natural deodorant! I’m a convert this year and will never go back!
Lindsay Hawkins says
Just ordered! Can’t wait to give it a try!
You’ll love it, Lindsay! You’ll be so happy you made the switch! xoxo
I’ve heard amazing things about the Kopari deodorant! Everyone i know loves it! 🙂
I have the body scrub and coconut lotion and love, love, love them! I am going to try the deodorant, but am wondering if I should purchase the scented or unscented. I wear perfume; do you think that the scent will overwhelm my perfume?
Hi, Bridgette! I often wear Jo Malone fragrances as well, and I’ve never noticed the fragrances competing. I think either will be fine! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Kathy L says
I wear perfume daily and use the scented Kopari deoderant. It does not compete with my perfume at all! So much fun seeing my Instagram comment in your graphic on today’s post Sheaffer! 🙂
Since I trust you (and Shay has been talking about natural deodorant), I ordered some! I put your name as the “influencer”… I’ll let you know my opinions in a few weeks!! 🙂 From bras to deodorant… THANK YOU! 🙂
I am going to try it, thanks Sheaffer! I just recently read about Native natural deodorant and picked some up at Target to try.
Purchased!! Can’t wait to try it out!
You are going to love it, Bailie!!!xoxo
I’ve had trouble with other natural deodorants giving me dark skin under my arms. It’s gross looking. I wonder if this would too?
Hi, Caitlin! I’ve been using it for 6 months now and haven’t experienced any darkening. Hope this helps! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Stupid question, but do you still sweat? Not a fan of sweaty arm pits? ?
Hi, Nicole! I’ve always experienced some sweating with all deodorants I’ve ever used, but it’s minimal with this one. And only in extreme situations. Hope this helps! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
What shade and brand is that pretty lipstick you are wearing?
Hi, Leigh! In this post I think I was just wearing a gloss, and I’m not sure which color gloss. So sorry! 🙁
Hi Shaeffer, sorry to hijack your thread, but I have to tell you I just put on my new Wit and Wisdom absolution ankle skinny pants and I love them!!! I bought in the thyme color, but I’m going to have to have more solids. They are incredibly comfortable, and perfect for boots (and booties of course)! Being a long waisted gal, I wish they were a little higher, but they don’t fall down and hold you in. Have to wear no seam undies though! Do you have the link? Of course, I’d like to do it that way and not direct from Nordstrom. Oh my….which colors do I need next?
Also, another “love” for the Sims necklace. I purchased in ivory, thinking it was white…so didn’t wear it with white clothing during the summer. But I have it on with a white sweater and thyme pants and it looks fabulous. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks!
Hi, Lulu! So happy to hear you love them so much! Are you on instagram? You can dm there for the undies link! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Okay, okay! You’ve FINALLY talked me into trying it! 😉
I’m a bit worried because I’m a sweater and I usually buy antiperspirant. (I think it’s important to distinguish between deodorant and antiperspirant.) Hopefully, trying the Kopari at this time of year when it’s cooler, the “detox” period will be easier and less “aromatic” lol!
You’ve turned me onto Colleen Rothchild and helped me build a pretty cute wardrobe. Hopefully, your streak will continue with Kopari.
You have to keep me posted, Jennifer! I hope you love it as much as I do!!!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
I purchased Kopari deodorant. I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for the suggestion.
Hi Sheaffer! I have been following your blog for a while now but haven’t commented yet, even though I have bought a few of your must haves! I finally had to comment on this Kopari post. I have tried so many natural deodorants, Schimdts, Toms, Primal Pit Pase, Lavanila, Crystal, Alaffia, etc. and haven’t found the right fit until Kopari. I have been on the hunt for over a year!Thank you for the suggestion! It is absolutely amazing, keeps me smelling great, lasts through sweaty workouts like a run and hot yoga, and doesn’t ever give me a rash. I love it so much!!
I’m sooooo happy to hear this, Clara! I mean, I know that I love it….but I get so excited when I hear about others who love it too! Great endorsement. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
