First, let me start by saying that I don't know if they are hair inhibiting. I haven't been using them long enough. I got three in a sample pack. I will say, however, that they are great as a swipe on deodorant. They do not leave marks like normal deodorant. The don't leave a strong smell like a normal scented deodorant, but they do have a pleasant smell. They make my underarms FEEL very dry as well. For lack of a better term, it feels "matte". And it worked ALL DAY (as opposed to some normal deodorants I've used). They are one-time use only, so that's a big downside because they are quite expensive. I look forward to using these more so I can see if they ultimately are hair inhibiting. I will say, I had laser hair removal in my underarms and still have "peach fuzz" so I'm hoping the hair inhibiting feature will help with that. Even without it though, I would highly recommend this product.
