The aluminum-free deodorant I've been waiting for!
Purchased

This product smells so good - it's a nice subtle scent that feels pretty without being overpowering. I've worn it over the past few days since receiving it in the mail, and it has held up through long work days and an intense spin class. I've been looking for an aluminum-free deodorant that lasts and smells good for so long, and I'm so happy to have finally found it!

nice but SMALL!
Purchased

I think this is a nice product but my gripe with it is the size. It looks like a sample and for $9 I was expecting more product! I've used a variety of natural deodorants before, and I'm used to paying a higher price for a better product but with the expectation that I'm getting something that doesn't look like a travel size version of the product. So, 4 stars for actual product, 2 stars for packaging and size.

I wanted to love it
Purchased

I was so thrilled to find an aluminum free deodorant and I absolutely LOVE Birchbox so I was hoping I had found my match, but unfortunately it just didn't work for me. It has a really refreshing scent, and I loved it for the first couple hours, but it wore off pretty quickly and I began to get stinky. Such a bummer because I really did want to be in love with this product.

Love this stuff.

This deodorant is my introduction in to the aluminum free deodorant world and I'm so happy I tried it. I sweat easily, so I've been skeptical of trying anything that did not have an antiperspirant. So far, I've tried this deodorant before my workouts and it's been great. The scent is amazing and I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything by not using my normal antiperspirant.

Stinky...and not in a cute way.
Purchased

First, let me preface this by saying I am a Birchbox addict and major fan. When they said they were releasing their own line of products my joy was MUCH.

That said, my first issue was that this was a very small product size/weight for $9. Though honestly...I could have dealt with it just to be able to use an aluminum free deodorant with fantastic natural products. The scent alone was amazing. However, it doesn't work. Not even a little. As in, it's-been-cold-I-haven't-even-had-to-worry-about-sweat-but-good-GOD-I-AM-STINKY. Yes, y'all...it was bad. I tried carrying it around so that I could reapply, but it didn't help. I shudder to think what would happen if I even attempted to wear this in the summer.

*sigh* It was a really excellent try, but sadly this didn't work for me at all. I've still got hope for the rest of the products from the Arrow line and will check them out as I'm able to.

Awesome!
Purchased

I've been searching for a non-aluminum deodorant for well over a year without much luck. I've tried all the known hippy brands, all well as a spendy boutique brand that broke out my armpits for months. (No fun!)
This has a pleasant smell, goes on smooth, isn't a weird liquid consistency like some others, doesn't sting, and actually works! Hooray!

New favorite!

This is the perfect travel size for my gym bag. The scent is really great & fresh, but not overpowering. I'm new to aluminum-free deodorants so it took my body a bit to get used to it, but I just kept reapplying throughout the day whenever I needed to.

Sticky, Smelly, Disappointing
Purchased

I LOVE Birchbox & was so exciting to try out another one of their brands after really liking the LOC products.

Sadly, this deodorant was definitely not a good buy.

First, it's very small for the price. Good size for travel & keeping in your purse, but for the daily deodorant, the value is just not there.

Secondly, this product does not last whatsoever. It goes on clear and fairly sticky (kept finding lint from my clothes stuck in it) ..and I noticed a few hours later that I was smelling......which is unacceptable. I work a sedentary job during the day, and even when I am active, I never have issues with body odor at the end of the day, or even after a few days. With this deodorant, I was noticing it stopped working within a few hours. So disappointing. The deodorant I normally use is nothing special either, I usually use Dove.

Sadly, this was a waste of a purchase, I cannot possibility use it again.

Gentle enough to use during radiation

Used this deodorant while I was going through radiation (so my skin was incredibly sensitive and I was limited to what I was able to use) and it was gentle and did the job. The scent isn’t my favorite, but it’s very subtle so I can’t smell it while wearing it. Thank you for a great product!

Not the best

I like Arrow makeup products, but this was disappointing. I took it in holiday, and it did not last all day. I can’t recommend this deodorant.
