I'll admit, I was skeptical. I actually don't mind sweating, my primary goal is just keeping my odor in check. So I don't need or care much for antiperspirant, and was just in the market for a relatively "natural" deodorant. So I definitely still sweat while using this, but it's the only one I've ever tried where I just smell like absolutely nothing. Most natural brands leave you stinkier than you were to begin with (I'm looking at you Trader J's).
A huge bonus is that my husband can use it too! He's soooo sensitive to the baking soda and some of the essentials oils in all of the other brands we've tried. (knock on wood) but this is the first and only one so far that has kept him stink-free and rash-free.
Not to mention it lasts forever. I can definitely see how it doesn't work for some, but I'm grateful that I've found the holy grail of deodorants for my family at least.
