Shopping for natural beauty & body items on Etsy.com

I decided to try Etsy.com for some natural beauty & body items since there are lots of people out there getting started and making items. They have a feedback system so you can go through and check to make sure they don't have bad feedback. My shopping experiences on Etsy have all been good transaction-wise. Items always arrive as described, most sellers are super nice and helpful. I have purchased beauty & body items, photography, organic shirts, jewelry and tons of cool knit & crochet stuff, often for amazing deals on quality work. Here are some reviews of items I have gotten on Etsy.com when looking for natural beauty & body stuff.

This shop also has their own website, they have good reviews on Etsy and I have to say, out of everything I tried, this is the best one.  They have awesome scents, the fragrance isn't so overwhelming and they are yummy.  They do need to be reapplied but I think this is better than the scent being so strong it makes me feel ill or almost knocks me over. 

What I tried:  The Pits Veggie Deodorant,  Aromatastic Perfume Oil and the Complexion Zen

Seller #2 MyBeautyAddiction
This shop has a lot of different things and good reviews.  I tried their Vegetable Protein Deodorant with Chamomile and Aloe Vera and Solid Perfume mini sampler. The deodorant smelled a little strong but I liked the scent.  It last but...I had an allergic reaction to it.  I tried it one more time to be sure and yes, it is the deodorant that caused it.The solid perfumes were nice but they do not seem to last long so they need to be reapplied throughout the day. As I said above for Bunny Butt, this is better than a scent knocking you over. Another cool thing is they even have scent dupes for Lush scents, yummy!

Seller #3 LuckyGirlBoutique

This shop has a variety and some decent feedback.  I tried their All natural vegan deodorant and natural laundry soap sampler.  I haven't tried the laundry soap yet.  Let's hope it smells better than the deodorant.  I ordered deodorant in Lemon Pound Cake, said to smell like lemon and vanilla which sounds awesome to me.  I put it on and was overwhelmed by a very strong baby powder smell with a hint of old lady perfume LOL I could not even fully wash it off.  My BF asked me to wash it off and had to change his shirt because the smell even got on him after cuddling  on the couch.  Yikes! It is unfortunate because the deodorant seemed to work, though maybe it is because the scent was so strong, it overpowered any possible sweat smell that could have been there.

***IMPORTANT UPDATE ON LUCKY GIRL*** The seller was upset that I did not like the deodorant so we discussed scents and she scent me an orange creamsicle to try.  This one was much better and dare I say, it works well! 

That is all I have ordered so far beauty and body related from Etsy.  After all this, I think I will probably stick with artsier things unless someone highly recommends someone who sells this sort of stuff on there.
