Love this! I have hyper hydrosis and had tried all the various "clinical strength" products with no results. I've ruined countless #s of tops and white shirts were not an option for me. This keeps me dry for 24 hours and doesn't leave a residue. You just have to let it dry before you get dressed.
I think I have tried every deodorant known to man. This one is BY FAR the best I've ever tried. It leaves no white residue, does not interfere with other perfumes or body sprays, doesn't cause irritation, last ALL DAY, isn't difficult to wash off (like so many other gross deodorants from the store), and is just all around amazing.
I love how you don't have to use much to get the full benefits of it. I'm not an unusually heavy sweater, but I am an avid runner and dancer. YES...it lasts all day, many times into the next day.
The only downside is the price; but since you don't need that much for it to work and it is the best deodorant I've encountered...a few extra dollars doesn't bother me!! Plus, I get mine from the Marine Exchange so its cheaper and tax-free! God bless our military!!
I've been looking for a unscented deodorant with zero drying time and had my eyes on this and the Clarins one. I decided to buy this because it's unscented. It's easy to apply because it has a bulb shaped top you can use to spread the product, you just need a small amount. It keeps me dry for a long time even the next day. Regular deodorant usually dont last til the next day, I will already smell some tinge of sweating. But with this, it's good til you wash it off. To make sure it doesnt cause my underarms to darken, i lightly scrub my underarms every other day to ensure I get the product off completely. It's amazing at doing what it promises to do, but a little hefty for a deodorant, I hope it can last me a long time. It also causes a little itching in my underarms but nothing too serious, no rashes so I have to alternate it with another product. This product will also shorten your prep time coz it's technically zero drying time and will not leave white or yellow marks on your clothes. It also doesnt leave white streaks so you can wear sleeveless clothing well. This is a grest products like any other kiehl's product, I have to swear by this.
I have to deal with the worst body odor. It has been an issue for years. What is even more infuriating is that my arm pits do not actually sweat-they stay dry. But I still have to deal with a smell, regardless of the 2 showers I take a day. I am constantly on the search for something that will be some sort of relief. While this has not cured me, it has been of some help. For me, the trick is to let this cream dry completely before I get dressed. Some days, it really helps keep any odor at bay. I'll continue to buy until I find something that is of more help to me.
Love this deodorant. I don't like having a fragrance in my under arms. I spend enough money on high quality lotion and perfume, I don't need baby powder or "fresh scent" competing with that.
It lasts a long time, works well, and doesn't feel sticky. I wear a lot of black, so I can say that it does still leave white marks if you aren't careful, but it won't be a waxy buildup on your shirts like the normal deodorants do.
I also don't think there's any truth to it reducing the hair growth, but I didn't buy it for that anyway.
The only downside (short of the price) is the packaging makes it hard to get the last bit out. I usually wind up slicing it open to get the last 3-5 applications. Not to mention when you're getting towards the end of the tube, it can get air bubbles as you squeeze and may splatter out and waste product.
had to completely re-write this review after i stumbled across a product called 5-day deodorant at rite-aid with the EXACT SAME active ingredient as kiehl's superbly efficient. only 5-day deo has the ingredient at 9% higher strength (!!!), is half the price (!!!), and is packaged in 75 disposable pads instead of a tube, with plenty of liquid in the jar (if you so desire) to add your own cotton pads and get even MORE use out of the jar.
i always thought this product was exorbitantly priced, but was willing to pay for it since it made certain-dri more effective...now with 5-day deo, i don't need certain-dri OR kiehl's.
The thing I like most about this is that it has made my underarm hair thinner and shaving every day no longer leaves me with a gross rash!
I really love the formula of this deodorant. it does not smell, and the creamy texture means it applies and spreads very easily. it dries very quickly and unlike conventional stick deodorant, does not cause white marks on dark coloured clothing! it definitely works very well! true to its marketing strategy as a deodorant with less chemicals, it definitely does do its job very well in the first 24 hours, but unlike other brands like ladys speed stick, i cannot go without reapplication the next day. (with a more chemical-based deodorant, i can go 2-3 days without using deodorant with no sticky feeling etc). However, i rather use a more skin-friendly deodorant than to go back to using a conventional one!
took one lippie off because i find that the applicator/head of the deodorant isnt the most userfriendly nor sanitary.
but overall, great product
i'm so sad to write that this doesn't work for me at all. I really wanted it to work, but it just doesn't do anything to me. Can't control sweats and odor AT ALL. I do like its cream texture but that's not helping.
this works well for me, although i havent used it in the summer months yet. i usually have problems with sweaty armpits all year round though, and used dryclor to control it until i switched to this which has been just as effective.
its easy to apply - the top of the tube is rounded with a hole in it, you squeeze some product from the hole and then apply to your armpits. you dont need a lot to coat your whole armpit, it smells nice/fresh and it doesnt irritate my skin at all (some deodorants give me armpit acne :[ ), even when ive just shaved my armpits.
you have to leave it to dry for a minute or so before you put clothes on otherwise it will leave white marks on the inside of your clothes.
this costs around £10 (i got a full tube in a swap), and i dont think i would buy it, there are cheaper and more natural deodorants out there.
