Need to freshen up between showers? Try a couple sprays of Kill It Dead ($12). Billed as a "natural de-funkifier," this mixture of witch hazel, tea tree oil, and other earth-friendly ingredients is formulated to kill offending odors emanating from your underarm, foot, or other stinky spots. A great alternative to traditional aluminum-filled anti-perspirants.
If your shoes tend to resemble the bayou after a long workout (or just a long day at work), pick up some Amenity Foot Spray ($32). With a mixture of Drieline, willow bark, menthol, and clove and thyme, this stuff helps prevent wetness and odor, minimizes crevices on feet, and reduces calluses. The locking sprayer is great for a gym bag.

When you slap on deodorant each day, you don't think much about how it affects your body. But since your skin absorbs around 60% of what you put on it, it might be worth considering. Oars + Alps uses aluminum-free, natural ingredients sourced from the arctic circle for all their products, including this deodorant. And unlike other natural deodorants, they are alcohol and glycol free. So you're free of potentially harmful toxins while smelling fresh and keeping dry.

Designed for sensitive skin, NXT Light Shave Gel ($5) is light in more than one way. It's light on foam, to let you get a better glimpse at what you're shaving — lest you accidentally slice off your prized soul patch — but it also comes in a specially designed package that boasts an LED in the bottom, lighting the gel up like a lava lamp once every 15 seconds. Great for the looks of your bathroom shelves, bad for trying to smuggle dinosaur DNA. [Thanks, Jno | via]
