OK, I am dumb. I thought I was getting a reaction like many other people here had, but it turns out, I just hadn't rolled the product up far enough. The plastic edge of the packaging was rubbing directly onto my skin, which I mistook for the actual product causing irritation, LOL. I guess that can be considered a negative, which is why I took a lippie off. But, other than that, I really like this deodorant! The scent is interesting, but I will be trying the lavender one next. I am also not sure how well it would work in the summer, it seems very gentle and actually a bit moisturizing? It doesn't claim to be an antiperspirant, just a deodorant, so I don't think I would expect it to control sweat very well. I love the texture and the fact that it doesn't leave weird residue on my clothes, will definitely continue to use it.

I decided to try out a more natural product but I didn't realize it would enhance my natural scents. I liked the way it smelled when I first got it, but its smell seemed to resemble a more b.o. scent over time. I feel like I need to put on a lot at this point to cover up the scent that seems to penetrate through the product. I recently bought the Apricot scent and it works much better––I would recommend that over this one.

I've been trying to use more natural/cruelty free products. Sadly this did not work for me. The deodorant itself smells good but only lasts about an hour on me before I start smelling like b.o. I agree with the reviewer below me I actually think I would smell better without it. I may have to make an exception to more natural products with deodorants and go back to my Old Spice wolfthorn.

My first deodorant more on the natural side and its cruelty free. I was so excited to buy this. Unfortunately it did not do much. I actually feel like some days I smell bad, like I would smell better without it. I was prettttty sad.

I really, really wanted to like this. I like other Tom's products and thought this might be as good as the other products are. But the cold fact is I sweat too much for it to be effective. I don't have the rash/welts/breakout issues that other reviewers have had, but this deodorant doesn't (a) deodorize or (b) anti-perspirize (sorry - that's not even a word, but y'all know what I mean). It does leave a funky B.O.-kinda smell after a while, which other reviewers have noted.Serious disappointment. I love ya, Tom, but this stuff doesn't work for me.

The biggest issue are the welts the product created for me under my arms that resulted in a sunburn like peel. Concerning for one, and slightly embarrassing for another. I'm hoping my body will adjust to the product but if this continues I don't see myself repurchasing. The biggest reason it gets 2 lippies is product vs cost. You have to re-apply multiple times a day, on top of that a soft formula which gets used quickly, and often at $5 or more a pop I don't see myself re-purchasing Tom's of Maine lemongrass deodorant. While the skin irritation is inconvenient, the cost for red welts under my arms feels like insult to injury. Still not giving up on finding a more dependable and cost effective natural deodorant.

While this lasts longer than most of the natural deodorants I tried, it didn't hold up in the end. It smells nice and it doesn't irritate my skin. It couldn't mask my odor even though I didn't do anything extreme. I was lying around at home although I do have to make note that I have extremely bad body odor.

After an unpleasant experience with tom's calendula stick a few years ago I've stayed away from these deodorants, but a few weeks ago I was given the lemongrass deodorant. It smelled so great in the tube, and I thought I might just have had bad luck with the calendula, so I gave it a try. And it blew me away. After one application I was lemongrass fresh for over 24 hours. Not a hint of b.o. or the scent "turning" on my skin like some do. Unfortunately, after applying it the 2nd time - trouble began. I was itchy, red, and a rash was clearly brewing. I had to go without any deodorant for a week for the reaction to calm down. So, this is one of few aluminium-free deodorants that works beautifully on me, but I won't risk it again.

The first day I used this, I was impressed with the scent, much like lemongrass, very fresh/sweet. It glided on well, but felt wet for a few minutes (longer than expected), & I felt like it travelled down my arms, which I found odd. Once it dried, I didn't notice it really. I would like to mention that it is winter/cold, I am not a sweaty or odorous person and I did not work out on this day. By evening time, my shirt smelled sour. I never felt wet, but it did not prevent odor, and I would say that this product made me smell more than if I had used nothing at all. Terrible.The next day, I tried it again, thinking maybe something was off the previous day. I applied it and within 2 minutes, I had a very painful burning rash. I had to immediately wash it off to relieve the pain. The rash took a day to disappear. I am shocked. I always thought of this brand as quality natural products. This was NOT a quality product. It was ineffective, unpleasant, and problem-causing. I would suggest to avoid altogether. Terrible!

I was using Nature's Gate deodorant and ran out. NG was gentle on my skin, and it was effective for the day; however, I definitely could use a second application in the evening. NG seems to be harder to find these days, so I settled on Tom's. Within a few days of using Tom's, my skin started to turn darker, flaky and itch. I've never had that happen before with any deodorant and/or antiperspirant. I stopped using it, and the discoloration and rash went away. Tom's went right in the trash. After reading some other reviews on MUA, I see that I'm not the only one that got the rash. I've just bought Arm & Hammer's Essentials/Fresh Scent, so we'll see how it goes.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
