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.
