I don't like this AT ALL. I've been using natural alternatives to aluminum deodorant or antiperspirant for years. This is only a deodorant. So you will sill sweat as per usual. However, it does NOTHING to mask any odour. It makes me smell worse, how that is possible I'm not sure? Perhaps a body chemistry thing with the natural vanilla fragrance. Thank G I bought the travel size. I don;t use deodorant much, I don't tend to smell very much even if sweating. However I like to have it on hand because I find depending on hormones and time of month, and if I eat something super garlicky LOL it can come out in BO :( In addition to making me smell worse, the application is horrible. It's so dry and chalky it doesn't glide on at all. I have seen some reviews say to make sure your skin is damp, or maybe you can damped the stick itself with water? But it got so dry and crumbly I just tossed it. I had better luck with Crystal deodorant, the roll on kind, and the 7 day deodorant called Lavalin. It's expensive but I'll just stick with either of those from now on.

I tried this product but had the worse reaction. My underarm was so dry and red. It was so itchy that I completely stopped using it and my armpit was red and itchy for about a week.

To begin, I want to mention that deodorants and antiperspirants are NOT the same thing. Some people don't seem to know that deodorant is not supposed to make you stop sweating, it is simply to make you smell fresher when you do perspire. Antiperspirants work by blocking your sweat glands with chemicals. Anyways, I was looking for a healthier option with no aluminium for my everyday armpit juice. I read reviews that said it doesn't last all day and I have to agree with that. But that just means reapplying once during the day. I bought a travel size to keep at work just in case.My favourite scent is the Lavender Vanilla one. The product is sometimes hard to apply, I feel like it's better to use right when you've gotten out of the shower and your skin is still a bit damp. Otherwise it sometimes pulls at the skin. I also do not like to apply it right after I have shaved though since the skin is still a bit raw.All in all, this product does what it claims and seems like a more natural choice, in my opinion.

Duuuuude. This deodorant is the beez kneez! I have been using natural deodorant for a few years now, and have only had bare minimum sufficientcy. However, when I became pregnant, my changing hormone levels made me a STANKY chick. Ofcourse with my heightened sense of smell, and nausea - I could not live with smelling like a barn hippie. So I went on a quest for a proper effective natural deodorant, and was lead to this sweet little nugget. I opted for the Vanilla - Coconut smell, this was purchased online and I was a little concerned that it would smell too sweet. Lo and behold, it is brilliant! It is feminine with a touch of musky sandalwood-ish(?) scent - and definitely no patchouli nonsense happening. It has kept me fresh all day, and I am STOKED. xx

Every once in a while I try to go aluminum free and fail. During one of those attempts, I stupidly bought a three pack of this deodorant (vanilla passion fruit, fresh vanilla lemon, and vanilla grapefruit) based on good reviews. All three smell yummy, and as far as natural deodorants go they're probably the best I've tried, but they do not keep me dry or stink free and I'm done trying to make them work for me. If you're okay being a little damp in the pits and reapplying every six hours OR if you live in a chilly climate and don't sweat much PERHAPS these will work for you, but as a gal who lives in toasty TX, I need the real stuff.

This deodorant exceeded my expectations but not by much. I of course didn't expect it to keep me fresh as long as my anti perspirants but it did a decently good job. I would put this on in the morning and go to school as well as do a very sweaty workout afterwards and I didn't smell terrible at all, but I also wasn't as fresh as I would've been with any of my other deodorants and anti perspirants. I think the smell of this is so strong that when I apply this It smells like I just applied strong perfume. I'm gonna leave this deodorant for cooler days when I'm not going to be doing much. I don't know if it's worth the price... I probably won't repurchase but if you're big on natural deodorants then I think this is worth a try.

I am a veteran of vegan deodorants, being both vegan and extremely sweaty. I have yet to find something vegan that gets me through the day with zero odor, and this is no exception.
I tried the travel size, since the full size is laughably expensive for something untested. I might as well have worn nothing. I could smell myself by hour two at my desk job. Not even heavy-duty sweating! Did they just throw a bunch of stuff in the container and hope for the best?
If you insist on using this, apply to damp skin, as it will go on easier. Otherwise it's dry and crumbly.
Smells nice, though, so I guess I'll get my 8 bucks worth by using it as a solid perfume.

This is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant. It doesn't prevent sweat, but it doesn't claim to. So you can't bash it for not preventing sweat. It is meant to prevent bad smells. Unfortunately, this did not make me less stinky at all. I smelled horrible. It did absolutely nothing for me, and for some weird reason I smelled worse than not wearing deodorant (weird, right?). My friend could smell me. It was the first time in my life a deodorant did that to me. I even gave it time and tried it out for awhile. The funny thing is, my boyfriend ran out of his Old Spice deodorant one day and borrowed this. It masked bad smells for him, so he finished it - wasn't a waste of $14 LOL. If you are going to get test this, get a travel size first.

I have tried about a million natural deodorants and this is the most effective I have found yet. I bought it in the pure vanilla travel size to try and the first thing I noticed was the beautiful scent. The scent stays with you all day and I find it really reminds me of the beach for some reason. My partner loves the vanilla smell too and I have even been asked what perfume I am wearing. Out of all the other natural deodorants I have used this is also the only one that hasn't left me with a painful red rash.It is a deodorant so you will still sweat whilst wearing it but I was not looking for an antiperspirant anyway because I don't like the idea of my pores being clogged up. It takes care of any any odour for me on normal days and I reapply once during the day on hotter ones. I can see how it may not work for everyone because we don't all sweat the same amount, but I think for anyone out there who doesn't get bad BO and isn't overly sweaty, this would be the perfect natural deodorant for you. I will repurchase in the full size version next time.

I got the travel size of the original vanilla scent just to try it out. I am definitely NOT a fan. This product is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant, so it will only mask the odor. The smell is pleasant and quite natural (not the fake, cake batter vanilla smell). The fact that it is a natural product, without any chemicals is quite tempting. Ultimately, however, this product is really ineffective. It might work if you don't sweat/smell much. It will not prevent sweating, and only masks the smell for a few hours (at least for me). If you sweat even a little bit, this product will not take you all the way from morning to night. This one is an easy PASS for me!
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
