Out of all the natural deodorants I've used (Crystal, Jason Organics, Pai, Schmidt), this is definitely a favourite. I never want to use a deodorant that has a aluminium in it, and I feel this has the longest wear and is also easy to apply. However, I don't have BO or tend to smell badly so I don't need a strong deodorant. In fact, most days I can afford to go without, and this is just a safety net. The friend who recommended this to me swears by this though.

It sinks into the skin and dries quickly, it's easy to spray on and it keeps me stink-free. However, it's not a antiperspirant (thankfully, because I don't like using products that are) so don't expect this to keep you dry. It has a lovely fresh citrusy smell (doesn't smell like cleaning products!) but it's doesnt last too long so it's not overwhelming and it won't clash with your perfume.

I've repurchased this twice and will continue to do so. It's very reliable, and I never have to worry about bad smells when I use this. The bottle lasts for about a 8 months with daily use for me, so it's worth the money.

It is a very expensive candy smelling water in a sad packaging. Smell lasts for 10-15 min.
Probably it doesn't harm exactly because it does nothing.

Delicious! Absolutely smells like a citrusy gin & tonic. Super refreshing! I love the glass bottle- very luxurious feeling. One of those cosmetics you almost want to leave on display because it's so pretty- like most Weleda stuff. It works GREAT! Is a little pricy, but I have used just under half a bottle in 3 months (with a generous 5-6 spritzes per armpit every morning!) so for a 6 month supply, I'm ok with the $15 price tag. As a decade(s?) long user of natural deodorants, one mega benefit I have found with this spray is that if I do want to freshen up during the day, I don't get that weird odor breakthrough that often happens with reapplying stick deos! No pit-to-stick bacteria transfer, and while the alcohol base may sting more delicate pits, I have no issue and think that it may be part of the odor neutralizing magic! I am even going to splurge on the travel size to carry in my purse, and take up less room in my makeup bag when travelling!

This is one of my favorite deodorants. It's not perfect but it's close.

I'm not using aluminum based deodorants anymore because we don't really know the risks. They might be perfectly safe but I'm just choosing to go the "natural" route.

This smells so great and fresh! Yes, it stings right after you shave but I mean, it's got alcohol so obviously it's going to sting a little. Not a problem for me. Also, it's not a traditional antiperspirant so you're going to sweat a little but I freshen up with it a couple of times during the day and for me, it works awesome. So refreshing. I like the glass bottle too, a little luxe.

Also, antiperspirants can leave yellow stains on clothes and I don't want to ruin my good shirts so this works perfectly to prevent that as well. Overall a great deodorant!

I agree with other reviewers that the deodorizing effect is not good enough, and that it stings in your armpits after shaving. It does smell nice and refreshing, but it doesn't make it to my favorites list. Didn't expect such an aggressive product from Weleda. I will use it up though, since I don't think it's horrible. As a body mist, I think the scent is a little too detergenty instead of perfumy.

- nice scent
- natural and cruelty free

- stings and could be too aggressive for sensitive skin
- glass bottle is too vulnerable to toss in your sports bag
- effect is not good enough

Great smell, works ok in combination with Lush aromaco (first layer lush, second layer weleda, reapply weleda) or by itself if reapplying every two hours. I actually don't like this one in the winter. I think it works better when your armpits a "free to breathe". The Weleda Sage works better but smells like hell!

Deodorant for your pits? No no. Refreshing body mist and perfume? Yes!!!

I cant believe they market this as deodorant...really Weleda, really? Its alcohol, water and essential oils. That doesnt make a deodorant, just a nice smelling mist and perfume. Thats what I use it for because its nice and refreshing. I just wish it came in a plastic bottle so I wouldnt be so paranoid about it breaking in my handbag.

Besides potassium alums, this was the first non-antipersperant deodorant I tried. It was a fail: didn't last long and stung after shaving (active ingredient is alcohol). Scent was just okay, and I like citrus scents in general.

This concern probably doesn't apply to many, but I also felt like I was accidentally inhaling it when I sprayed it on. Note that it contains irritants: d-limonene, linalool, geraniol, citral, farnesol. I think most of those are just natural components of the lemon peel oil, but I really don't want them getting in my airways since I'm asthmatic.

Hope that helps someone. I'm going back to crystal (potassium alum) for now.

The scent of this is invigorating, just like spraying a spritz of gin and tonic at my arm pits! Sadly it does nothing to keep even the faintest odour at bay, Pit Rok is far better, I always remain fresh smelling with that.
I should think that the alcohol content might be irratating after a while of using it as well. Such a shame. Back to Pit Rock.

Don't you just hate it when you start out really liking a product, only to have it stop working altogether. It's such a random thing & so unexpected. I used this deodorant for over a year & then it just stopped working. I hadn't changed anything so it didn't appear my chemistry was altered in any way. I just felt it was no longer doing it's just job so I had to stop buying it.
