Not my favorite

While it works extremely well to absorb sweat - it is difficult to get the powder onto your armpits - you have to use your hands, then you have to wash your hands etc. sometimes too much comes out and it kind of billows from the bottle because you have to squeeze it. Really a powder compact with an brush or pad of some sort would make for easier application. Where you could just get some on an applicator of some sort and pat or dust it onto your armpits without excess left over. I am often in a rush and lucky that I remember deodorant before walking out the door - so for me it was a hassle. Additionally I made the mistake with first time use of wearing a white shirt. It got dark splotches from the gray powder on it and they were there all day. 😳

Just works.

I've been wanting to switch to a natural deodorant for a long time. Unfortunately I am a sweaty, hairy dude and a lot of products have come up short. After applying this once a day during the grossest, hottest days in the northeast this summer I'm a convert. It has charcoal in it so it will darken your skin, which wasn't an issue for me but might be for some. The smell is strong when it's on your hands, but while wearing it, it definitely wasn't overpowering. A bottle lasts a while.

The Freshest Scent

I've never used a powder deodorant before, so I had to figure out how I wanted to apply and not waste product. I applied using a face powder sponge. Worked great but there is a little spillage. Now I just lean over and shake it directly on my pits. I love the fresh clean smell in place of sweat. Its a natural water like scent if that makes sense. It did stain my sons white shirt but I don't mind the coloring if I'm wearing darker colors or sleeveless. I will be buying again

I don't love the smell of this one. It isn't bad, but strong and not my favorite. Greeech is the best IMO

This product works great as a deodorant unfortunately it darkens you're skin when you apply it which doesn't look good on a blonde haired, fair skinned woman. I'll save it for winter when I wear long sleeve tops,

Worked in every way but my sensitive skin didn't like it :(

So with a couple of weeks of using this I can say it works very well. It does stain your pits darker but I found that to be a minor problem. For myself I'll have to try something different since I've developed a rash from it. Oh well. I have extremely sensitive skin. Otherwise I would definitely recommend. I'm going to try another type.

I just started using it and I'm impressed.

I typically wear a lot of black, including bras. After reading other reviews, I ended up buying both types (this one and the greench.) I switched to natural deodorants about a year ago and have had mixed results. I get rashes with baking soda based deodorants. This one keeps me relatively dry and totally stink free. I don't need to reapply and at the end of the day, there is no odor. It does make your pits greyish black and you need to wash your hands after applying it. I wouldn't recommend wearing a tank top. It works really well and smells wonderful!

Smells great, looks kinda weird

Philadelphia, PA | 3 months ago

I've been using natural deodorants for awhile so my pits had no problem adjusting to this formula. The smell is so earthy and I like it a lot! The only thing I don't like about this is the color is leaves on my skin. There is charcoal in the formula so I guess I shouldn't be surprised but it does stain quite a bit. I wear mostly black so it's not too much of a problem but I am definitely scared of wearing white or color shirts with this deo.

It's amazing how well this stuff works... I can go through an entire day of running errands in 40° heat and literally will still be dry when I get home. Plus even if I do sweat occasionally the powder really masks any smell into a more neutral one. I'd give it a try if you haven't before, I've only ever needed powder about half the size of an M&M to take me through the whole day for both pits!

Best deodorant ever

So I sweat, A LOT. I've tried every kind of deodorant ever, especially natural ones, and I pretty much always end up smelling at least a little funky halfway through the day. Not to mention the obnoxious white stains on all of my nice clothes. Then I gave this a shot on a whim and I will say I love it. It helps some with dampness, though I still end up with damp underarms partway through the day. However, I'm not smelling. At all. Even the next day if o forgot to put it on I notice I'm still not smelling. The only exception was after eating heavy curry spices one day. Also, it doesn't leave white stains on dark clothes. That being said, this is not a good deodorant to wear with any white, delicate articles of clothing (I have The Greenwich for my little white pieces of clothing, though I don't like the smell of that one as much). Seriously love this deodorant!
