This was a very ‘wet’ deodorant which meant it took quite a while to dry and even then still felt slightly sticky. When I applied to my skin it went on semi-transparent white but turned a bit clearer once it had dried. There were very few white marks on my clothes which I was very pleased about. As with all natural deodorants I have tried, it didn’t leave any yellow marks on my clothes either – which I am assuming could be aluminium.

This product doesn’t contain any pore blocking ingredients like aluminium so it didn’t drop me sweating. I wouldn’t have minded this if it had kept me smelling fresh but it didn’t because the smell faded quickly after I applied it. I found the smell a bit fake and not one that particularly compliments the smell of sweat – in fact I think it made it worse! However, this product is available in other scents including: lavender, tea tree and aloe vera.

The rollerball for this deodorant was a bit small so I found it uncomfortable to use. It also made the product hard to apply because I had to keeping rolling to make sure I got all of my armpit which then put an excess on some areas, creating stickyness.

I think this is a good product to use if you are unlikely to be sweating (a day lazing around the house) and want to give your underarms a break from all the chemicals in regular deodorant. I would not recommend it for day to day use or people who sweat alot because it does not keep odour under control.

Summary

  • Pros: Alcohol and aluminium free
  • Cons: Very sticky and didn’t keep odour under control
