I bought this over a year ago, tried it a few times and didn't think it was working very well. Three months ago I rediscovered it and, wow, it's amazing!! Smells great, doesn't irritate my skin and keeps me smelling fresh. It's really important that if you're switching from a regular antiperspirant to give your body a chance to detox before deciding if a natural deodorant is working or not. Love this stuff, it's all I use now!

I switch this up with coconut oil every once or twice a week. It doesn't leave a white cast, doesn't flake off, and I couldn't believe it when after 12 hours of being out and about, there was NO SMELL. I also try to skip applying anything on my underarm whenever I know I can afford to (e.g. wearing full sleeves, staying home all day).
For those of you who find that this deodorant cream doesn't work for you right after you have switched to this from your usual, chemical-loaded products, try using coconut oil for a while and then come back to this. It lets your body detox from having used all those chemical loaded products. I have found that it works much, much better to control the odour.
Also, sweating is a natural process, so keep that in mind and skip deodorants if you can on days you know you're not going to need it. That allows the skin to breathe and regenerate. As a habit, I always carry a pack of wet wipes in my bag and wipe my underarms down midway through the day. Keeps you feeling and smelling fresher for longer.
I've been using this for 2 whole months now and I didn't want to believe it, but yes, this gave me UNBEARABLE rashes. I'm probably really sensitive to the drying effect that the baking soda is causing. A lot of users have reported breaking out a rash because of the baking soda. Please do a spot test before you slather this product on liberally. I'm battling burns, discoloration and extremely dry skin right now.

I really wanted this to work. I bought this based on a review by Jen Sinkler, an online fitness personality. I wanted to try an aluminum-free deodorant, and figured if it held up during her workouts, then it should work for me. The product itself is pretty cool. It smells phenomenal (if you like herbal scents) and is slightly gritty in texture but easy enough to apply. I tried it for just over a week. The first two days it barely lasted till lunch. After that, I began to sweat a lot less and it kept away odor for the entire work day, but I still felt a constant dampness under my armpits. I also developed a little sensitivity and slight redness. Nothing horrible, but it went away as soon as I stopped the product. I have since switched back to Dove, which I've used for years, and my armpits are nice and dry again. I might finish my little tub of deodorant cream when its no longer the height of summer here in Texas, but right now I need a more powerful product for these 100+ degree days.

I have literally tried dozens upon dozens of natural deodorants. Nothing seemed to work until I ran across this little gem! It a great natural deodorant that I didn't need to re-apply and held up during intense training in the gym! Doesn't make me smell, it actually works! I would totally recommend this product. FYI I have super sensitive skin, especially my underarm skin, and this product has made me break out in a rash or darken my under arms or anything. Truly a good natural product!

I bought this last summer and used it exclusively during a month-long european choir tour. I had absolutely no complaints smell-wise. I did sweat, but as I don't shave my armpits the hair helped absorb moisture. I have since bought another tub. I love that you apply it with fingers, much more control over amount!
THE PROBLEM: after a while, I started getting sort of peely, and my skin was very irritated, dark, and would flake off (looked NASTY, but I was the only one who really looked at my pits.)
WHAT I'M PRETTY DAMN SURE THE PROBLEM WAS DUE TO: baking soda. It's abrasive stuff, and it's the main ingredient. Some people have more sensitive skin than others, but I do think that the aforementioned pit-nastiness will eventually happen to everyone. If it doesn't, I'm insanely jealous!
I used this through the first part of fall and winter, but when I got a role in a musical that included lots of dancing and armpit scrutiny, I decided to shave my pits, and along with it I began using regular old Dove again. It worked well enough, but by the time spring rolled around, it had stopped working.
NOW: I've been back to Soapwalla for a couple of weeks, and so far no problem. I intend to try mixing up my own version, and have done some research on arrowroot powder, a possible non-abrasive substitute for baking soda.
Sorry for my ramblings, hope to offer some insight to what this eventual problem is! I really do support Soapwalla, though. I think the woman has some really cool stuff going on, and I hope she can continue to supply this product for anti-aluminums everywhere!

I have been trying to avoid deodorants/antiperspirants that contain aluminum, and after doing some exhausting research, I decided to try this product based on numerous positive reviews on many different sites. I don't mind the application, packaging, or scent, honestly. I knew going into it I was going to have to rub the cream into my pits.
The product itself is a very thick cream that you must rub into your armpit. It is a bit gritty in nature and doesn't feel wonderful when being rubbed in. I like the fragrance, as I found it to be very natural and herbal. I can definitely detect the tea tree oil, lavender, and citrus in there. It didn't irritate my skin, which is pretty sensitive.
My biggest problem with this product is that it doesn't last AT ALL on me. I mean, I'm a pretty stinky sweat monster, so I don't expect that much, but it literally prevents odor for all of an hour or two. After that, I stink like a musty attic. It does nothing to prevent perspiration, either. I know it doesn't claim to, but I've used some natural deodorants that actual helped with dampness. On the bright side, it didn't leave any lingering odors or stains in my clothing.
This is worth a try if you are going natural in your beauty regiment. It seems to work for a lot of others, just not for me!

BEST natural deodorant I have tried so far!
I bought a small wooden stick to apply it with as I dont like using my fingers. The stick fits in the box on top of the jar of product
Pros: Long lasting and keeps me stink-free
I like the smell
Cons: A bit expensive but it lasts for ages

I'm not saying this is the best but it is a pretty good natural deodorant.
There are several things I don't like about it, so I don't think I'd repurchase..
1. Smell - I hate. Smells like bug spray, I know, I know, the essential oils have a (antibacterial?) purpose, but I can't stand it. And I can smell it all day, it is strong.
2. Price - You guys who live in the US probably think it's dirt cheap, but I have to pay shipping.
4. Packaging - I'm not a fan of it, it looks ugly and I hate sticking my fingers into it.
5. Black - beware! It leaves a white residue on black clothing.
3. Sodium bicarbonate - I know there are some who are allergic to it, well, I'm not one of them, but better to be safe than sorry
So why 4 lippies? The good things:
1. It lasts ALL DAY. And I'm pretty sweaty.
2. You only need to use a little bit, so it lasts and lasts...
PS. NEVER, N-E-V-E-R use this right after shaving/waxing.

I've been making a really conscious effort to move to natural & organic products - especially under the arms where the skin is really thin and you absorb a lot of the ingredients you apply.
Given that I didn't think the performance would live up to my previous Nivea roll-on - I was really pleasantly surprised by this product, and actually found it more effective and keeping me smelling fresh!
You only need to apply a tiny bit so the pot lasts forever (must have had mine for 4 months now and still got at least a month's worth left) - it does take a while to adjust to applying with your fingers but it's really not that big a deal.
The only thing that does bother me is that, if I use everyday, the skin under my arms can become red and irritated and I have to stop for a couple of days. I'm not sure if this is don't to the high quantity of essential oils?
As there's nothing else on the market really as pure, I would buy this again - but if I found something with the same credentials that was better for sensitive skin, I'd definitely make the switch.

I have been using this deodorant for about 6 months and it is still my favourite. The ingredients are clean and it keeps odours at bay, especially if you reapply at the end of the day. It won't stop you from seating though, but nothing natural really will. The application is a little messy since you have to use fingers. The jar lasts at least 3-4 months, and I get it for $14.
