Pros:
-Keeps me fresh and fairly dry. I use this after applying a plain crystal rock deo.
-No alcohol or aluminum ingredients. Instead uses zinc to kill bacteria.
-Doesn't rub off on clothes or leave white marks.
Cons:
-Not crazy about the scent. It's rather herbal (calendula?), pleasant but not my favorite. It's not overpowering, at least.
-If I go a few days without using this, the product on the roller ball applicator tends to dry out slightly, and leaves noticable white gummy clumps upon application to the skin, which I then wipe off easily with a piece of tissue. Not horrible, but a minor inconvenience and a step I would rather do without.
Overall, it's a totally OK product. I would use and purchase it again if I didn't have anything better, but I prefer the deo by Sebamed or the new pink Alverde deo, both with zinc but better scents and no sticky applicators.
