Lume works great...until it doesn’t. Things were wonderful at first. It provided great odor neutralization for the better part of 24 hours no matter where I used it or how much I sweated. It didn’t keep me dry, but it isn’t an antiperspirant so no surprise there. In the winter, Lume alone was fine; in the summer or on days where I was sweating more than usual, I’d use a little deodorant powder to help dry things up. Then after a year, Lume wasn’t working as well. I noticed that my armpits weren’t smelling so good at the end of an 10-hour day. I rotated scents and also brought a tube in with me for touch ups. That helped...for a little while. Then that stopped working too. Soon, I was starting to smell like my teenage son after his gym class, and that would be before I finished my shift at work! Lume seemed to be doing a decent job controlling odor elsewhere...though I’ll admit, with my feet, some days, some days, it seemed like it was hit-or-miss. I shelved Lume for now. The problem is that I have a good-sized supply of this around, and given the horror stories I’ve read about their customer service, I think I’m stuck with it. I’m hoping that my body just got too used to Lume, and that after a several-month break, I’ll give it another go and it’ll work again. Until then, all I can give it is two stars...and even then, that’s grudgingly given. 1 1/2 stars would be more accurate.
