Keeping in mind that this is simply a deodorant, and NOT an antiperspirant, I'd say it worked well.
My BFF and I swore by this stuff for a cool minute in high school, but then we realized we were still sweating through t-shirts. We never stunk, but I'd say the telltale wet marks were almost as embarrassing, if not worse.
Worked nicely as a deodorant, but the lack of antiperspirant kind of defeated the whole purpose for me.
I use the unscented, I think it works the best... The scented ones seem to just end up mixing with BO and smelling weird... This deodorant really works for me, I apply it in the morning and it lasts all day (even after the gym)!!! Works even better than conventional deodorants/antiperspirants and it's easy to find. I really don't like that it has propylene glycol in it though... That's really the only downside.
I decided to give this a try after reading a lot about how aluminum in deodorants isn't good for you...I bought the Apricot scent, and it actually smelled quite good! Unfortunately, it did absolutely nothing to control odor or sweating. I tried it out on a day when I was working from home (in the winter; literally just sitting in front of my computer all day), and I couldn't believe how little it did...I don't usually sweat excessively, but this stuff definitely didn't work for me...I typically have very good luck with Dove's deodorant, so I'm going back to that!
I bought the apricot scent. It irritated my skin and dried it out so bad that I couldn't wear anything except lotion on my underarms for two weeks. Needless to say I will not repurchase.
I've used this deoderant in Calendula scent for years. It's nothing exciting, but has a nice, natural smell that used to mostly keep me odor-free. However, recently I started to notice that once I put it on, it has a kind of sour smell on me. I don't know if it's the particular stick I have, but it's really turned me off. I'm switching to Weleda spray deoderant now, which seems to work well and smells wonderful, but is more expensive.
Love it! I was never comfortable with the concept of anti-perspirants, so I was very happy when I found this. It's refreshing, non-irritant and it smells great, too. To be honest, I do not have problems with sweat/odors, so I don't know how this would fare with sweatier skins.
Love the idea, dislike the results. Unfortunately, this deodorant simply does not work. Smelly armpits within a couple of hours of putting it on as if I hadn't used anything at all. Back to the store it goes--at $5.50, I'd like my money back.
This does not work for me. Very embarrassing actually. The oils or something mix with sweat to make me smell worse. Liquid Crystal with Weleda spray deodorant are my HG!
I used to use this deodorant before I discovered Crystal. I did like enough for a more natural non anti-perspirant. I really liked the Apricot whihc has a mild pleasant smell ... problem is it didn't hold me! After about an hour I, myself, would feel uncomfortable with my lack of freshness. If, for some reason, I couldn't find Crystal or couldn't find a better one, I guess I would buy this again.
My fiance uses this, the Long Lasting Version. It smells good on him. he has been trying to get me to switch to natural deodorants because clogging pores with aluminum is not good. I tried his, this stuff is very gel stick like texture. Very soothing and smells good. It does feels icky but finally dries. It doesnt protect me from dryness, I'm self concious. I will one day fine one deodorant that works for me.
