Birchbox Breakdown

This deodorant cream will single-handedly save your shirts (not to mention your reputation). It’s strong enough to curb sweat for a full 24 hours, but unlike common gel and roll-on sticks, it won’t sting or stain the underarms of your button-downs. Even better, this unscented deodorant is so absorbent and effective, it doesn’t need an overpowering scent to mask your musk.

How to Use

Applying a cream instead of a roll-on will only take a day or two to get used to. After showering, spread a small amount under each arm, covering skin evenly.

Good at one thing, bad at the other

Despite the three star review, this has become my everyday antiperspirant, and here's why. As a sweat stopper, it is marginal at best. Maybe I'm just a sweaty guy, maybe my body has been tuned to the stick kind of antiperspirant, I don't know. However, it does not stain your shirts. At all. Dress, tee, whatever, the weird white buildup and the pit stains are gone/no longer growing.

I sweat all the time - when I'm cold, when I'm hot, when I'm nervous, when I'm comfortable - whenever! I think it relates to my hypothyroid condition. This works great! It stops me from perspiring 80% of the time and hides any smell.

Used it for something unconventional

This is weird I know but I work in a restaurant and it gets hot and my face sweats. I bought this because I wanted to use it on my face and I knew I needed something natural and less harsh than a traditional anti-perspirant. I rub a small amount on my temples at night and I have found a significant reduction in the amount of facial sweating. It works!

Given the brand, I was hopeful this product would be a good deodorant. It worked fairly well as an anti-perspirant, but did nothing as a deodorant.

I don't like the texture

This is a cream that you squeeze out of a little hole at the top of the tube, then pat into your underarms. The top of the tube gets covered in cream, and it has to be cleaned off after each use. As an antiperspirant, this works well. As a deodorant, not so much. Because this is a cream, it can ball up or streak in my underarms. I wear sleeveless shirts a lot, so this makes me check mypits for goo all day long. The positives with this are the effective antiperspirant, and it's unscented. I usually like unscented antiperspirant, but this one gets a bitter smell to it after hours in the heat. It's fine during cool weather, but this isn't a product I can use during the summer. If Kiehl;s made this in roll-on, which would form a dry film, rather than feel creamy, I'm sure I'd like it a lot more.
