I've been using Lavanila deodorant for several years but decided to try Clean Queen during the recent Tarte 30% off F&F sale. As a vegan and overall health nut, I try to use only natural and cruelty-free deodorants. When I saw this on Tarte's site I knew I had to try it. I've been very satisfied with Lavanila, but it is quite expensive: $16 for the Sport version (the one I use most often) and $14 for the others. I figured if I like Clean Queen, I would buy it during their F&F sales, saving quite a bit of money in the long run. The packaging is very cute: mainly blue with a lavender Chevron design. The deodorant itself has a pleasant, clean scent and goes on very smoothly. Now for performance... I first applied Clean Queen at around 7 AM and by 10 AM I had a strong odor coming from my armpits. I promptly reapplied it but was stinking again by noon. I put more on at around 3:00 PM. At 8:00 PM, I was disgustingly smelly so I wiped down my armpits with a baby wipe and applied my Lavanila deodorant. I stayed fresh for the remainder of the evening. Before each reapplication of Clean Queen, I sniffed my armpits to see if I could detect any whiff of deodorant, but all I could smell was body odor. It was as if I hadn't applied any deodorant at all! The day I tested it was not a super hot -- high 70s -- and I was in AC all day long. At no time did I sweat or workout, nor was I particularly active that day. Sadly, this was a major fail for me. I will keep using my beloved Lavanila deodorant (please see my review for more information).
