Birchbox Breakdown

Underarm sweat and stench is natural and unavoidable, so why not get rid of it naturally too? Instead of aluminum, this vegan, paraben-, and phthalate-free deodorant stick combines sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) from the brand's original formula with magnesium from their sensitive skin stick to absorb wetness and odor. There's also a slew of other 100% natural ingredients that help get the job done, like charcoal, which soaks up moisture and toxins as they leave your body. But don't worry, it doesn't actually smell like charcoal—its fresh, crisp aroma is reminiscent of just-fallen rain.

How to Use

Apply to dry underarms. Reapply as needed.

Maranta Arundinacea (Arrowroot) Powder, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Fractionated Coconut Oil), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Magnesium Hydroxide, Carbo Activatus (Activated Charcoal), Natural Fragrance, Tocopherol (Vitamin E)

This deodorant has a pleasant scent and soft to the touch. I think it’s a great concept and wish I could have used it ling term. However it caused significant amount of irritation and I’m sure it be better if I haven’t shaved my underarms first. I want a product that is not as irritating even if I had just shaved

Good, but not the best

I bought this sample because I wanted to try a natural deodorant and Schmidt's is a pretty well-established brand. I usually use a regular Secret deodorant, but I tried this consistently for about 2 weeks. This worked OK, but I definitely needed to reapply more than I liked (ever 8hrs for sure) and the Charcoal+Magnesium formula felt gritty even after absorbing. The scent is very neutral, but that's not what I prefer. I recommend trying another scent instead-- after I tried C+M, I bought a Lime+Bergamot one which seems to work so much better.

Gave me a rash

This deodorant works better than any deodorant I've ever used but it gave me a rash in my armpits. I've still been using it since it works so well but probably won't buy again because of the rash and clogged pores. :(

Great if you like earthy scents

This deodorant smells wonderful, if you're a fan of earthier scents. You have to hold the stick up against your arm for a few seconds before applying in order to warm it up (otherwise it seems like nothing's being applied), and it definitely isn't a "24- to- 48-hour" deodorant like some brands advertise, but it does feel nice and light and effective. My sister and I both thoroughly enjoyed this, and might buy another when we run out.

Works but not for me

I love that this product is organic and aluminum free (which is what causes those yellow stains) but my sweat comes from stress glands, not the ones designed to cool down your body, these can only be blocked with aluminum (sad, I know). I will add that although I was sweating a lot still I didn't have terrible odor!
