Review of Unlisted Brand Crystal Roll-On Body Deodorant by heathermrm
Wow - never in a million years did I ever guess that I would use a deodorant instead of an anti-perspirant /deodorant combo, but once I read the reviews here on MUA and due to an increasing dissatisfaction w/ the AP/D products I've used for years, I thought - why not try something totally different? So, I motored over to my local Walgreens (couldn't find this product at Target). Lo and behold, it was cheaper than the Degree I recently switched to (after developing some resistance to Dove and Secret products). I'm not usually a roll-on fan, but again, the MUA reviews did not steer me wrong.
For the past week, I have toweled off after my a.m. shower and put this on immediately. Using a roll-on takes a bit getting used to (having been a stick user for like 30 years), but, it does dry rather quickly and ......IT WORX!!!! Absolutely NO body odor - even by next a.m.! Its getting hot here in the midwest and I seem to be more sensitive to heat and am sweating (and smelling) more as I get older (I'm 42). My shirts, by the end of each day, always smell like whatever AP/D product I was using and while not completely horrible, still, I would rather smell my perfume than my AP/D product at the end of the day. This stuff = no smell at all!!! As a totally unexpected bonus, I don't seem to sweat very much under my arms w/ this stuff either (even tho its not a AP) My new HG!!!!
UPDATE 07/26/10 - can't believe I've been using this for 2 years and its still HG! About a year ago, Natural Valley Grocery Store started carrying this in 2 scented versions in addition to the regular unscented -(1) Chamomile & Green Tea; (2) Pomegranate. These are called Crystal essence. I have been using (1) (in roll-on form) for the past 6 months and LOVE it!! Just like the original = all day odor protection (including a 1-2 hour workout in the gym).
UPDATE 08-18-10 - according to the website, there is also a 3rd scent out, (3) Lavendar & White Tea. I just purchased and I LOVE this scent too! Neither the chamomile or the lavender versions interfere w/ any of my perfumes.
I can't recommend this product enough!
BTW - according to the website, they have never tested on animals.
