I've been using this product for only a month and mostly when I don't want my deodorant to show. I was nervous about how effective it's strength is, I tested it and it passed.
It's great for on the go, and when wearing that really nice dress or blouse . I really like it! In fact with spring and summer on the way, I bought another box.
I'm not sure about the hair inhibitor part , but if this becomes apparent as I continue to use it, then it's a definite plus. For now I enjoy the easy to tug in a pocket or purse, it's potency, and no deodorant crust.
