Best natural deodorant I’ve tried

For a natural deodorant this is the best I’ve used but I am not giving it five stars because I am holding out for a natural deodorant that works as well as non-natural…. that I will give five stars.Personally, I have to apply this twice a day. However, aside from repeatedly applying the product I have no complaints. The scent is nice and light and the feeling is good when you put it on, even right after shaving.I firmly believe that one of these days soon there will be a much better selection of natural deodorants, toothpastes, etc…. so I’ll keep trying new stuff… in the mean while, this will do fine.

Doesn’t last long enough

To be fair, I live in a ridiculously hot and humid area. In a cooler climate this product may work great. It doesn’t smell great but it doesn’t smell bad either. Just kind of an earthy, herbal scent, which didn’t bother me at all. I do have a problem with many deodorants (even natural ones) causing rashes, and I have never had an issue with this one. It just doesn’t work that well though. I end up having to apply it up to 3 times a day. It also leaves a pretty distinct white film. I’ve almost used it up and probably won’t be buying this one again.

just alright

I didn’t realize when I got this product that there was propylene glycol in it. My fault for not reading into it more. Because of that I wouldn’t call it " liken plant". The product itself is just " okay" it is better than a lot of the other natural deodorants out there but nothing to write home about. I will not buy again.

Live, Stink- No Sweat!

Here it is: my 8.5 daughter has B.O. I bought this at Wal-Mart for her for experimentation purposes back in Spring 2011, but then nixed it due to some type of aluminum ingredient contained within the deodorant that is not so great for kids. I have been using it since my Mitchum ran out two months ago, so I figure that is enough time for me to now present my findings to the world. Please do not swoon when I tell ya this: I have Yeti armpits. I shave them twice a year as I am time constrained, lazy, and married*. Don’t worry- I do not sport tanks in public. Anyway, I put this deodorant on eleven hours ago, and even with the Furbies in my pits, I can hold my head high (or should I say arms?). I even rubbed my hand as hard as possible in the pit area, prayed, sniffed my hand deeply, and was rewarded with the sweet smell of nothing on my right pit, and a very, very, very slight Josephine scent on the left (Josephine was supposedly asked by her husband, Napoleon Bonaparte, to resist bathing herself in his absence so he could bask in her true essence at their reunions). For several years now I have had worse B.O. in my left pit- weird, but true. This deodorant is not scented, gentle, effective, produces no clothing stains thus far, and has a great price. I am pleased with my first foray into the world of unscented deodorant that is not a crystal. So, exercise, clean house, yell, walk briskly, shop madly- just put this stuff on first.*Footnote: For data’s sake, I do want to mention here that when I do shave my armpits and then apply deodorant, it does not work effectively for the first several days of hair-freedom. Do hippie armpits somehow fare better because the deodorant “clings” to the armpit hair and harnesses its effects for a greater period of time? I will investigate this one day, but for now, I will only update this review if I shave my pits before my Almay runs out. I am interested in its effects at that time period.

The BEST anti-perspirant on the market!

I tried everything. For years, I kept having to switch from one deodorant to another about once every six months, because my body either became resistant or irritated by each product. Roll-ons were nasty, wet or sticky. Deodorant sticks left a white residue on my clothing. And if that wasn’t embarrassing enough, often the products failed, and the resulting body odor was overpowering.Then I discovered Almay. It doesn’t make my underarms break out. It goes on clear, leaving no powdery residue under my arms or on my clothes. The gel stays put, but doesn’t feel wet or sticky–usually drying by the time I get my shirt on. If I didn’t put deodorant on after my shower the night before, and there’s a bit of odor when I get dressed late in the morning, it’s no problem. Almay seems to kill the bacteria and neutralize the odor without me having to wash. I generally reapply the product when I change clothes, just to be on the safe side.I have used this product for years, and, other than the container (recently updated again with a new look and a different applicator), Almay hasn’t changed. Thank heaven! Usually, when a company "new and improves" a product, it ends up not working as well as the formula they had before.Whether you are a guy or a gal, this is a great anti-antiperspirant. Most Wal-Marts and Walgreens stores carry it, or you can get it online. Wherever you get it, it’s worth the investment to keep you perspiration- and odor-free!

No Big Deal

I was tired of natural deodorants that just didn’t work for B.O. However this isn’t that much better on odor. It stops you from sweating which I did not care about. It also makes me sneeze and is hard to wash off the next day in the shower. While it goes on clear and dries smooth, my armpits feel sticky or coated in the shower the next day. I would not get it again.

Love it!

Been using this deodorant for years and its amazing. It has a light and almost unnoticeable smell and it really works! i used to have to change deodorants every few months because they would stop working or my body stopped reacting to them, but since I’ve been using this I probably haven’t changed the deodorant for at least 4 years.

short shelf life

Used to work, but now it doesn’t??

When I first discovered this stuff, I was very pleased because it was a safer alternative to deodorants that have aluminum and other chemicals. After a while, it did nothing for odor. I’d take a shower, pour the product into my hand and apply. Still didn’t work. I noticed that other people who have used crystal deodorants have experienced the same problems. I guess for now, I’ll go back to using Toms.

Excellent deodorant, great smell

I bought this based on the good reviews from other users and because I love the smell of the other Dove products in the cucumber scent. I figured it would smell nice and work like any other deodorant or anti-perspirant on the market, no big deal. It works BETTER than any other product I’ve used before and it smells fantastic! No greasy feeling when you apply it, no marks at all on your clothes after you apply it, it goes on dry and stays that way. Even in the high humidity and heat of east Texas combined with a day full of chasing dogs and horses around I did not find I had to reapply three or fours into my day. By the end of my day, I still felt and smelled fresh and clean. The Dove does cost more than other brands which at first glance is a negative, but then again in the long run I’m using less of it so it’s a wash. (pun intended.)

Finally a natural deoderant that works!!

LOVE this stuff. One container has lasted me exactly 6 months! I had the vanilla lavendar and love the scent of it. Best of all though, it works. I’ve tried lots of others that don’t work for me but this one holds up an 8 hour shift of retail work very well. I’m buying another one now. Definitely recommend this product.Update: October 2012. Just discovered it has carrageenan in. When I first purchased this I hadn’t been made aware of the dangers of carrageenan. Shame it’s in there as I loved the product, but will no longer be using it due to this.

smells fantastic

I love lavanila products. I love the body wash and the deodorants. The lavender vanilla scent is nice, the passion fruit scent is nice, the grapefruit scent is nice. The only complaint I have is that this is kind of expensive- 18$ for 1.7 oz? You can find better deals for lavanila on sephora and ulta.The body wash is only 15$ plus shipping, why is the deodorant more for less product?

Over-rated and Over-priced

I put this to the test before a rigourous work-out in the gym. As previous reviewers stated, it does not stop underarm odor…it does seem to temporarily mask it. The vanilla fragrance seems to die out after a few hours. This is will work in the Fall/ Winter seasons but not Spring /Summer. Lavanila may be natural but it’s also over-rated and and over-priced. There are so many other natural deoderants on the market that are much more cheaper.

HALLELUJAH! FINALLY SOMETHING THAT DOESN’T MAKE ME ITCH!

I bought another product (Kiss My ****) and even though it didn’t have the itchy aluminum stuff in it, it made me itchy anyway…why?…it has LICHEN in it! I am allergic to just about everything, esp if it’s green, so I couldn’t use it. Plus, it really didn’t work so great anyway. I bought this Crystal Essence product in Lavender (never have had an issue with lavender flowers, ironically) and it WORKS GREAT, DOES THE JOB, AND I AM NOT DIGGING AT MY ARMPITS NIGHT AND DAY! I can not say enough good things about this product. I am buying more, in different scents. Give it a try, it truly works.

cat pee smell?

I saw the wipes in a postpartum kit that used to be available. So I bought the wipes and the roll-on.I used the roll on always on a clean underarm.Day 1: really overpowering smell of deodorant but after sitting with my arms up forever it dried and the smell went down.Day 2: noticed a weird smell in my apartment but couldn’t put my finger on it. I thought hey I’m pregnant…maybe it’s me that smells like that.Day 3: CAT URINE smell coming from my arm pits….I asked my husband to smell and he about gagged and said it smelled like cat pee! So I washed it off and went back to the stuff I had been using.Day 4 to now: it’s just sitting there barely used…..because it made me smell like a litter box…

Love this!

I use this every day, and it works great! I’ve been using salt deodorants for a few years now, and this is my favorite. Most of them are scent free, or a little too earthy, but this one smells very nice. Its a light smell, but enough that I still feel protected like a traditional deodorant/antiperspirant. It dries quickly, and I’ve never had any problems with it wearing off later in the day.

It’s alright but I wouldn’t buy it again.

First of all it doesn’t mist onto your underarms it shoots a stream of product so you get really wet. I had to spray it into my hand then rub it on. I didn’t find that it stopped my from stinking. After a few hours I was not so fresh and had to wear another deodorant on top of it.

Not effective; guy sitting next to me on bus moved away from me

So there’s this man on my bus, let’s call him Mr. Way Too Perfect. He’s a successful businessman, and when he’s not keeping the finances of San Francisco millionaires in line, he’s a beekeeper, an orchid plant “doctor”, an oyster diver, and he even grows his own heirloom mushrooms. Who grows their own mushrooms (intentionally)?? He does. He is very attractive, very polite, humorous, and can strike up a conversation with just about anyone and make them feel like they’ve known him for ages. I’m not sure where he comes from or who put him on this planet, but basically, he’s considered a demi-god by the women (and some of the men) on my bus. Everyone wants him to sit next to them. Anyhow, last week, he finally sat next to me. That’s never happened before. I’ve been waiting like a year for this opportunity. Fortunately, I had remembered to comb my hair and put on lipstick before leaving work, because I know he usually rides my bus on Tuesdays (he needs to get home early to coach urban basketball…but of course). My pants were clean, check. None of the usual coffee dribble down my sweater, check. Shoes shined, nails polished, and I sorta even felt hot. Problem is, I was literally hot. Whenever it rains in San Francisco, the bus drivers crank up the heat to like 95 freaking degrees. They don’t realize that rain does not mean the weather is cold; usually it just means the weather is warm enough for it to rain here. The windows were all fogged up, the bus was steamy, and I had to take my jacket off. Then I noticed that I smelled. Stinked, really. The deodorant I used that morning was the La Vanila Grapefruit. It smelled great when I put it on in the morning (mostly like vanilla, though – sort of a flowery vanilla with just a tiny hint of citrus) and went on really smooth. I finally thought I’d discovered the perfect nontoxic deodorant. So, Mr. Way Too Perfect was sitting next to me then he sort of made a discreet sort of sniffing noise and he GOT UP and moved away. Mind you there were no other seats on the bus, so he stood up the whole ride home. It is hard to stand up when the rickety old bus is traveling at 50 miles over the Bay Bridge. Lots of bumps. I wouldn’t recommend it. I guess I really must have smelled for him to have made the decision to stand up instead of sitting next to my stinky self. I was humiliated. Actually, I didn’t like the smell of my pits, either, so I would have moved away from myself if I could. Anywho, end of sidetrack story. If you need to smell great at the end of the day, don’t use this…or be prepared apply it AGAIN right before you need to smell great (applying deodorant at the bus stop probably isn’t the best look, though). Otherwise, be forever known as “the stinker” by Mr. Way Too Perfect.

I Just Hate The Smell

The smell is very very strong and underneath the grapefruit and the hint of vanilla is that awful baby-power musk. I’ve very sensitive to smells, that’s one of the reason I wanted to try this. But it really is unpleasantly strong. I’m going back to my Mitchum unscented. Yech.

Very talc smelling

I bought the vanilla and grapefruit scent and it smells like neither of those things. It smells like grandma talcum powder. It is so hard to get off the bad for you anti perspirant to only smell and sweat on natural deodorant anyhow… I am still on the hunt for something that works. I’ve done the toms stuff to no avail, .next I am trying weleda. This is very expensive and I expected more based on other reviews. I’ve loved the L’occitane anti perspirant for years and am trying to get off the crack! I’m using this so as not to waste it seeing how I paid $18 but I am not happy about it.

Does Not Last–Half a Day’s Coverage & Protection

I have tried a number of these natural deodorants, including this one. I wish I could report any of them work well. They do not. They smell great, much better than commercial ones. The ingredients are better probably for your overall health. However, this deodorant and the other ones (Tom’s, Nature’s Way) simply do not last long enough. I am not a sweaty person. My husband even teases me at times that I don’t sweat like a normal person. However, even with being a low sweat person, usually this lasts half a day. In sum, I have gone back to Mitchum.

I love this stuff!

I decided to give natural deodorant a try and turned to Burt’s Bees of course. I love the scent and it actually works! It’s a strange feeling to actually sweat now. But, sweating gets rid of toxins and using the regular antiperspirant/deodorant isn’t good for you anyways because of all the harmful ingredients used in them. I only have to apply once in the morning, 4 sprays each pit, and I’m good to go for the rest of the day. After I exercise in the evening I’ll reapply so that I don’t make my husband or cat faint from the odor. 🙂 Just kidding, even after a work out, it’s not too bad. I love Burt’s Bees and have always been pleased with their products.
