I bought this after reading the reviews but it didn't work for me.It didn't protect against odour at all and was really bad after only a few hours.It must not agree with my body chemistry unfortunately.I tried it on two separate days to give it a chance but it didn't do the job on a cold January day so at least I didn't try it in summer! I'm taking it back to the shop and will continue to use Secret Clinical Strength even though I'm not completely keen on the perfume.
Like the other reviewers, I love this product. It's gentle and scent-free, wihch is apparently really hard to find. I'm really pleased with the performance of it also, but I find it does take a couple minutes to dry after you put it on. Regardless, I will continue to buy and use this.
Love this! I had laser hair removal and pits have not smelled the same since (weird, but true.) This is the ONLY deodorant that works for me now.
I've noticed that when the tube seems empty there's still a lot of product inside the tip of the container. I cut the end of the tube off to use the rest.
Will rebuy forever.
Like most other reviewers, I absolutely love this product. I have the embarrassing problem of getting rough underarms - from years of shaving/waxing and using harsh anti-perspirants. So, my problem really isn't excessive wetness or odor. I have been using this product for two months and have noticed such a difference in the feel of my skin - it seems a lot softer! I will definitely purchase this again.
I bought this product based on the reviews here. I LOVE this product, yes it is a bit pricey and one needs to wait for the cream to dry before getting dressed, but very worth it. It doesn't really stop perspiration, but its stops any smell and I've never had deodorant stains on any of my shirts or bras after switching over to Kiehls.
Update - I have used this product for over a year with great success. When I was moving and all my items were in transit, I had to switch to another deodorant when my Kiehls ran out. I paid for it later. Other deodorants either stained my clothing or caused weird rashes on my underarms. I was finally pleased when I got my stock back.
This stuff is the best! It works so well in terms of preventing persperation and lasts the whole day so no worries. It also does not leave a white residue like regular deodorant tends to do because it's a liquid and it's so thin so it goes on clear, smoothly & easily. I highly recommend this.
I agree with all of the positive posts. i also live in the DC area and have NOT been able to find a deodorant that controlled my sweat and funk! :) At least until Kiehl's - I was initially turned off by the price, but I really liked the one product I purchased from Kiehl (and liked that it wasn't tested on animals). I've used the deodorant for four days now and I love it. The true test was putting it on after I shaved - no itchiness or irritation whatsoever!!!! I am ECSTATIC. Defintely worth the price and def will purchase again and again.
I cannot fully explain how much I love this stuff. I've always felt like I sweat more than any normal person should, especially during DC summers. I've tried numerous products over the years (mineral/salt sprays, products overseas that did little else than sting after application, AP gels, aerosols, etc.) Before discovering this product while reading a beauty blog, my most effective combination was using a mineral spray and Arrid aerosol, but even that wore off mid-day and left lots of residue on my clothes.
Enter Kiehls - I couldn't believe how well this stuff works! I stayed dry even during the worst parts of my commute (lots of walking, I depend on the Metro and work/live a few blocks away from the stations), and by the end of the day my shirts weren't ruined! I've been using this product since July and I will keep buying it because I love the way it works. I layer it with a scented deodorant, just because the Kiehl's scent is a bit too light for my taste - but I've never been able to buy deodorants based solely on scent before, and now I can.
I got my bf to try it at about the same time and this is his HG as well - he's also very sweaty, and after using this he remained drier a lot longer than with any other product. He suffered from severely dry skin under his arms from previous products, and the lotion formula of this product has actually helped to clear that up. He's also really happy that this product doesn't leave a nasty residue on his undershirts (as most other products did, and resulted in the "yellow pits") and his shirts stay in good condition.
Love this product. LOVE.
I bought this product after reading the reviews here. THANK YOU ALL! I have alot of trouble finding deoderants that aren't tested on animals and was drawn to Kiehl's for that reason. While it is more expensive than drugstore brands - it is very much worth every penny and I am so happy to have found it.
I never had terrible BO, but the next morning when I woke up, I definitely know it is time for a shower...until I started using this wonderful stuff. It keeps me smelling fresh right from one shower to the next.
I like that it dries fast and a little goes a long way...it is also nice to not have to worry about white marks on my clothes - even "invisible" brands have left me sad in that regard. Once this one is dry - I feel confident to just throw on my clothes and go.
As for dryness - it works better than the Mitchum I was using previously. I've been putting it to the test doing my Christmas shopping in overheated malls while wearing my winter coat. Before, I would feel damp all afternoon - now using Kiel's, I feel dry and unworried about any possible smells that might linger on me - because they just aren't there.
Also worth noting is that I am prone to eczema around my under arms and I suspected my old AP was making it worse - since using this, the eczema has gone away and my underarms are nice and soft.
I highly recommend this product. It cost me about $13.50 at the Kiehl's counter in Holt Renfrew (Calgary). I am going to keep a couple extra tubes in my product stash so I can be sure to never run low!
Best, best, best. Hands down. Like other reviewers, I tried them all to no avail. This works.--No wetness, no smell, no nothing. Yay! Application may take a bit getting used to: You definitely have to let it dry for a few minutes and it will leave white marks on your clothes, but not as badly as many drugstore brands and it's not flakey white if you know what I mean. In any event, I don't care because it works! If you try it and don't like it, I've found the Kiehls people to be very reasonable in terms of returns/exchanges.
