Review of Unlisted Brand Crystal Roll-On Body Deodorant by sunshine824
The past year or so I've had horrible problems with my armpits becoming painfully sensitive to deodorants. They were peeling, burning, and itching. I tried deodorants for sensitive skin, moisturizing ones, and unscented. I also tried applying lotion or body butter to my armpits *before* the deodorants, but they all had the same effect - burning, itching, and peeling.
After taking about 4 months off of deodorants and using nothing but lotion under my arms, I decided to try this product. (For the record I'm a serious sweater. I don't "perspire" or "glow", I SWEAT! And YES, I did smell bad initially, but after a month or 2 the really strong, gross smell was gone. Maybe from the old chemicals and backed up sweat clearing out?)
This Crystal Roll-On Deodorant doesn't irritate the skin there as bad as other deodorants but I can't use it on bare skin. I MUST use a lotion first, then this product. It doesn't stop me from sweating the way an antiperspirant does, but it seems to reduce the amount I sweat a little while neutralizing the scent of the sweat.
Currently I go without any deodorant products most days and only use this when I'm wearing a shirt that absorbs odors or I'm worried about sweating A LOT(hot & a lot of activity, etc.). But now, even if I wear nothing but lotion and my sweat gets onto my shirt, it still doesn't smell nearly as bad as when I wore deodorant. Give it a try. Oh, and this product too. ;-)
Will repurchase for those days that I worry about sweating excessively.
P.S. I took off 1 lippie because I still can't use it on bare skin and if I use it too many days in a row with a lotion that is too light my underarms feel sore and dry. But my armpits are freakishly sensitive now. Don't let that stop you from trying this great ALL NATURAL product. :-)
