Started using this instead of the Liquid Rock which I'd been using for several years, b/c I ran out of my LR and could't find it around town. The Liquid Crystal is available at Walgreens (tho much cheaper online at places such as so I grabbed it in the lavender/white tea scent. It works just as well as the LR, and seems to dry faster.

You have to (or at least I have to) *gently* squeeze the roll on bottle to get the liquid to dispense on to the roller ball, and the n apply it. The LR was so runny it would just drip out around the roller ball and was rather messy that way. The scent of this product is very nice, but not at all overpowering, and seems to disappear when dry, which is great.

One thing - It drives me up a tree when people gripe "ew, it's wet" and "ew, I still sweat" when writing about this product.

People, it's a ROLL ON DEODORANT. That means it is (a) liquid, as all ROLL ON deodorants are, so it *will* be wet, and (b) it is a DEODORANT, not an antipersperant, so you will still sweat.

In sum, it works very well at a very reasonable price, and I absolutely will buy it again. If you want to try it, now you know it goes on wet and won't keep you from sweating, but it should help keep you from sending people fleeing in all directions when you raise your arms. :)

Hope this helps!

Love love love the lavendar white tea scent! I initially tried the towelettes and fell in love with went out and bought the roll on deodorant. Been using for a few months and will never buy another brand again, this is HG status for me. I used to hate putting on deodorant, but ever since finding this, I actually want to put it on. Roll on felt weird at first since I was a stick person before like so many other people, but you get used to it.

For years I've been searching for a deodorant that doesn't irritate my skin. Everything I tried would give me a horrible rash under my arms and the deodorant scents would always mix with my BO and end up smelling all funky.

I decided to give this a try. I got the Lavender / white tea scent, which smells very clean and natural, but doesn't last long (unfortunately) Bottom Line, this stuff works! No underarm odor at all, no funky smell, it's really a miracle product. My pits are rash free, itch free and stink free. Love it, I'll never go back to "normal" deodorant again.

This is by far the best deodorant! I have the pomegranate scent, the smell is okay but it's so light I can barely notice and it dries within a few minutes. It actually works better on me than the other big brands that have aluminum as their active ingredient! Overall, I love the product because it actually works! It's nice to know that natural can work! Plus, it doesn't leave a yucky film like some of the other natural deodorants. Might try the unscented next time but I will continue to purchase!

This is, for me, the best choice you can do if you want a natural and perfectly working deodorant. Prevent the odor, not the sweat, wich is really more healthier.

If you want buy it on for a good price, you can have a $5 discount for your first order if you use the code LOP784 at checkout.

I have tried many natural deodorant products, and most of them (I'm looking at you, Tom's) have irritated my armpits pretty badly. This one was an exception. Unfortunately, this didn't work much better than if I didn't wear anything at all. Maybe I wasn't using it properly (I would put it on before I got dressed, not necessarily right after showering). Now I use the stick form, always after showering, and it works wonderfully! I think the stick is just a stronger formula and although is a little more annoying to use, seems to work much more effectively.

I used the stick version initially, but was not a fan. But I love the roll on version! No streaks, no bad chemicals, no issues, etc. I have the pomegranate version, and I LOVE the smell. Admittedly, I do re-apply a few times throughout the day, but I live in that's life if you're not using an anti-perspiration.

I didn't get totally smelly with this so that's a plus. But it irritated my armpits pretty badly. I had red streaks, patches of dry skin, and several days of embarrassing digging under my arms to stop the itch. Not terribly attractive.

Crystal essense deodorant roll-on, chamomile and green tea 2.5 fl oz

I have always used clinical strength deodorants in the past, as I am really self conscious about body odor. My standby deodorant was Dove Clinical, which was working fine for me, but I hated the high amount of chemicals that I was slathering on my skin every day. After reading reviews on tons of different products, I finally decided to try Crystal essense with Chamomile and green tea, because the reviews were mostly positive and because it is insanely cheap (on amazon) in comparison to the others I was considering.

I have been using it for about 3 weeks now, I am loving it! The smell is fresh and light, so it does not interfere with the scent of perfume or lotions. It dries completely clear and without *any* residue, which means that you can pull on a black sweater hastily without getting the dreaded "white lines" all over it.

As with any natural deodorant, it's not an antipersperant, so I do notice that I sweat more now than when I used a combination deoderant/antipersperant; however, it's honestly not that much more. Most of the time I am pretty dry, and I live in the high desert of California. And, even when I do sweat, it's totally odorless! It does take a little while to dry, and it is way more effective if it dries completely before putting clothes over it. When I do have to rush and throw clothes on right after putting on the deodorant, it is still pretty effective, and I haven't noticed any sort of staining on my clothes from it.

Provided that I apply it properly and let it dry completely, this deodorant keeps me fresh all day! I may need to re-apply in the evening, especially If I'm going to be hitting the gym after work; however, this deodorant has completely exceeded my expectations! If it continues to work the way it has been, I would totally buy it again.

This does NOT work. I tried this for over a month and had SO many embarrassing moments. There were times I couldn't face people I was so embarrassed. I think I smell worse with this than with nothing on. The other problem - this IS aluminum, and when wet it IS small enough to penetrate your skin --- so why use this? it's no safer than normal antiperspirants. you can check out the facts on the website called Chemical of the Day, where Stephanie, a chemist explains how this breaks down into small alumnium ions.

I am now using Jason Tea Tree roll on deodorant, and it works very well (for a natural deodorant that's not an antiperspirant, that is).
