I bought this product for my teenage son as he seems to be allergic to the other manly brands of deodorant, so far so good and no reactions, but yes it takes a minute or so to dry.
This deodorant is good, but it only lasts about 8 hours tops. It also takes a few minutes to dry -- it's pretty wet when you roll it on -- so if you're in a rush, forget about it. I usually have to remove the excess with a tissue. I find that Tom's of Maine's natural deodorants last longer and dry faster, and I like their smell, so I'm going to stick with those.
I found this product to be effective and pleasantly neutral in scent, good for men and women. Pleased that I found a product well priced, effective and most of all SAFE !!! Delivery by Well.Ca is so fast, just excellent.
This is the first natural deodorant I've tried that actually works to prevent odour and that isn't stinky itself (I mean, I love Indian food and Pine Wood forests but do I really want to smell like either of those?) This product has a scent but it's quite neutral and good for both men and women. Finally, a way to protect against under-arm odour without piling on the aluminum zirconyl under my arms. I still keep my Gilette handy for a day where I have a big meeting or have to do lots of sports---you know, just in case. But for every day wear, this one does the trick, and without the nasty chemicals. Try it!
I developed allergies to all of the other deoderants I have used, even the Crystal, so I was happy to find Desert Essence was effective and that I could use it without developing a rash. My local store stopped carrying it. I was so glad to discover Well.ca and can get it quickly delivered to my door!
This is my first attempt at wearing a natural deodorant. So far so good. It's been sweltering out and I have not been a stink-o-saurus as expected. Also, I love that it doesn't smell like lavender, the way most natural deodorants too; lavender is bad stinky. So far, I am impressed!
I grew allergic to my standard brands of deodorant. I tried Crystal for years then became allergic to that too. I found Desert Essence at a local store and it works great, but they quit carrying it. So I was very excited to find it on-line at Wells.ca, shipped quickly right to my door. No allergy and last all day with normal activity. The scent is very subtle which I think is a good thing.
Works well for a natural deodarant, may not last 12 hours but still one of the best ones I have tried.
I wanted to love this, really I did, but between the odd smell (not bad, just unusual) and only helping to keep some odour away, my search for an effective all-natural deodorant continues.
I have been looking for aproduct to use that was body conscience and so I could keep my white tops longer!
Not only did an does this product work AMAZING I have recommended it to many friends!!
..thank you D.E. for savin me my health an my white shirts!!!
I am very happy with this product - I've tried all sorts of natural deodorants and the sad truth is they are never quite as effective as non-organic products. This one was better than I expected. I wore it to the gym, bike riding, hiking, and all day long without re-application; it stood the test through everything. I'll absolutely be buying more of this product.
Hint: It also meets the requirements for liquid amounts when traveling via airline - a very nice little bonus.
This deodorant is not good. At first it smells great. Disappointingly enough in just a few minutes (moderate activity) or in about an hour (light activity) the bad armpit smell breaks through the lovely tea tree smell. I am not happy with this product and will not buy it again.
