What price do you put on beauty products?

Following the latest trends in beauty and self-care can sometimes get pricey, but at what point are you willing to draw the line? My teammate Sara and I recently splurged on the Donna Karan Cashmere Mist deodorant, the expensive & trendy beauty product everyone seems to be raving about!

Sara was immediately not a fan of this spendy $30 deodorant, so I fully expected not to like it either! But the opposite actually happened and I can now see why this is so popular.

Today we’re sharing our two totally different perspectives and want to hear what you think!

Ever heard of Donna Karan Cashmere Mist deodorant? Here are my thoughts!

If there was a luxury deodorant, this would be it!

I have been wearing Donna Karan Cashmere Mist deodorant this week and the performance of this stick deodorant is undeniably superior. Plain and simple, it stops all sweat — I have no sweat and also no stress sweat! LOL! 😆 I am just honestly super impressed and it’s pretty unexpected for me.

The scent of this deodorant for me smells feminine like a mix of soft baby powder and sweet floral. I don’t mind it at all and in fact, I kind of dig it! I have never smelled Donna Karan Cashmere Mist perfume, but I assume it would be similar.

thumbs up for Donna Karan Cashmere Mist deodorant

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist deodorant gets a thumbs up from me.

The deodorants texture is smooth and soft, and it totally makes me feel fresh all day. For reference, I normally wear Secret Clinical deodorant. This actually does a better job for me at both stopping sweat and odor all day long, and I feel super clean and feminine when wearing it.

The main downside for me is the steep price, so I’m thinking this could be an awesome special occasion deodorant for when I want to feel fancy! Ha!

But all that said, here’s what my Hip sidekick, Sara, thought about this deodorant:

Hey, ladies… Sara here!

You all know I take my beauty and self-care pretty seriously. I try my best to always use as many natural & organic products. If you ever saw my homemade deodorant post, it’s a telling sign of how passionate I am to live healthily while saving a buck where I can.

That said, sometimes ya just want to splurge on something high-end, and for some reason, I felt jumping on the popular $29 Donna Karan deodorant train would be worth my while. 😂 Don’t judge. Haha!

To be honest, I assumed at the price point of this deodorant it would contain only the best ingredients and be full of so much goodness, so I didn’t bother reading the ingredients to see if they aligned with my lifestyle. 😬 (Of course, that’s my fault, not Donna’s.) 🤣

Before trying it I was totally turned off by it. 😰

For me personally, I didn’t like that it had aluminum as the active ingredient along with fragrances – two things I like to avoid at all costs. I also felt calling it “deodorant” when it’s actually an antiperspirant was extremely misleading (and ultimately not my jam).

However, given the amazing reviews everywhere, I was still fully expecting it to have an amazing smell, but one quick sniff, and I was immediately overwhelmed by the strong floral smell – I guess fragrances just aren’t my thing either! 😖

All in all, I’m so thrilled that Lina does love it, and being the Earth-lover I am, I’m so glad it’s not going to waste! ❤️

Here’s where you can find the Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant:

This deodorant notoriously goes out of stock frequently, which always sparks the rumor it’s being discontinued. However, its popularity has always brought it back time and time again. 👏

So here are the best retailers that may have this popular deodorant in stock:

Here’s a bougie product we totally think is worth the splurge!

    I got two of these larger trial size in an advent calendar you guys posted about last year and I do love it. Unfortunately it is an antipersperant which I try to avoid so I don’t wear a lot sometimes I will just layer it on over my Tom’s deoderant if its going to be extra hot and I’m going somewhere special. Not worth that price tag though IMO. Here is the link for the calendar it was an amazing deal! https://www.macys.com/shop/product/created-for-macys-25-days-of-beauty-advent-calendar?ID=9453710

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing Maria! That’s a neat calendar!

  2. Kristi

    I’ve been using this for years. It is by far the best performing deodorant on the market and I’ve tried them all.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing Kristi! I was super surprised at how awesome it works 😬

    • Susan31652

      I’ve been using it for over 10 years. It is the best! It goes on sale for a 3 pack at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every year, so I stock up then. A tube lasts me a long time also fwiw.

  3. Jane

    Lol, I feel guilty paying extra for the pretty dove spray I like so this one is too $$$ for me to consider!

  4. Sue

    I’ve never tried the deodorant, but I use the perfume on a daily basis. It’s also expensive, so I usually ask my husband to buy it as an “only” Christmas gift. I’m hard to buy for, so it’s an easy purchase for him and everyone is happy!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ah I like that! It’s nice to splurge ona special scent. Thanks for sharing Sue!

  5. Jillian

    Sara, have you tried Earth Mama Organics deodorant? It’s my absolute favorite. I love the ginger one, but lavender is great too! By far my favorite deodorant.

    • Sara

      Thanks for the recommendation, Jillian! I’ll have to look into it when I’m due for some new deodorant! My homemade one is lasting so long – I love it! 🙂

      • Fabiola

        Sara, Can you share your homemade deodorant recipe?

        • Sara

          Yes! It’s linked above in the post, but you can also CLICK HERE and it will take you to the recipe! 🙂 Enjoy!

    I have been buying this for my sister for years. It is always part of Nordstrom Anniversary sale. The price has gone up every year, but still a good deal.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh good to know about that Nordstrom’s sale cause now I’m hooked! Lol 😝 Thanks for sharing!

      • Susan31652

        Yes, it’s a 3 pack!

  7. andyscottage

    It is the only one I use now. Every other one including the natural ones like Native and the crystal one did not work for me. Buy it on eBay. I have bought many expensive creams etc there.

  8. AshleyS

    This is my favorite scent! I’m sensitive to scents and can’t handle much. Tommy Hillfiger cologne makes me physically ill…. along with several other overpowering scents. This “fun” quality about me seems to get stronger as I get older, ugh. Anywho, Donna Caren line is a light powder perfume that is delicate and perfect in my opinion. The only product I purchased several times over the years was the deodorant. I too now avoid antiperspirants but I love the idea of layering as mentioned above. So tempting!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes that is smart I agree!

  9. reginasavini

    Be careful guys… I have gotten several counterfeit deodorants on Amazon, I’ll only buy in store or from Sephora now.

  10. NikkiLLM5

    It’s out of stock everywhere. ☹️

  11. Mirela

    I bought this couple years ago from Kohl’s. Paired with $10 coupon when you buy $50 worth of. Love it! And yes, the price is going up…

  12. JenB

    I got a (slightly smaller?) one in a Macy’s beauty box, probably the same one in their advent calendar since they make them with their beauty box items. It was nice but it didn’t do anything to rock my world.

  13. laura-24

    It’s an antiperspirant with aluminum. No thanks

  14. Love Cashmere Mist

    Its been a few months since I was able to find this… Now I got excited reading your post hoping I can order some… but its out of stock everywhere!

  15. Su

    I’m ready to try anything! I sweat like pig! My Armpits stink right after shower!

    • AshleyS

      I suggest checking out Duradry. Not their deodorant necessarily but their wash and PM stuff is life changing.

      • Su

        Thank you! I had never heard of this product.

  16. Christy

    I heard about this deodorant years ago and also decided to try it and see what the big deal was. I LOVED it and have been using it ever since. I’m very sensitive to scent (migraines) and this smells light and powdery, not overwhelming at all. I’ve also gotten the perfume, it’s ok but I use it lightly. The deodorant is the best!
    P.S. you don’t run out for a REALLY long time, lasts longer than a container of regular deodorant

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Christy!! I was wondering about that. It’s been several weeks now and it’s barely gone down so thinking it will last longer – yay!

  17. PrincessMom

    OK, I’ve found over the years that I’m “a Lina” not “a Sara” (maybe there should be a H2S quiz…”which H2S blogger are you?” lol) so I tend to try things Lina likes. I’ll still pass on this unless I find a great sale price but it does sound awesome to me. 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      LOL that’s a fun idea! Thanks for sharing, I agree it’s an interesting splurge I would have never thought of! Ha!

    • Mcall26

      Love that idea!

  18. CateM

    $29 for deodorant? 🙄 no thanks!

    • Laurie kerze


  19. Jessica Lodge

    Cashmere Mist is my scent, I have been wearing it for 15 years. I love the deodorant but I only use it occasionally because of the price. It is a great gift though, and I’m always happy when I receive it.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ah yay thanks for sharing Jessica!

    There are several sites that show that this brand does animal testing. I’m not sure how accurate the info is but here is one link. https://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/brands/donna-karan/ Many brands claim to be cruelty free but still allow their products to be tested on animals to be sold in China. Very sad stuff.

    • catmom

      Thank you so much for the informative link for all the animal lovers on H2S. There is absolutely no reason to test on animals!

      • mrswagley

        Glad to help for anyone that wants to know. I’ve been looking into it myself and I’m ashamed to admit I had a few brands around the house that I didn’t realize did this. I’m being much more careful now. Torturing animals for vain reasons especially is just so terrible.

  21. Lilu

    Why is this shown as $29 here when Amazon’s price tonite is $74.97?!!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      It seems the Amazon price is up right now. You can grab it for $29 through the ULTA link above. Hope this helps!
