Sticky armpits
Purchased

This product worked fine in the winter, but the first warm day I noticed sticky, gross feeling armpits. I then tossed this one in the trash. This does not work well with warmer temps.

not impressed
Purchased

this has a pleasant cooling sensation when applied but that cooling sensation just translates to feeling wet. scent is pleasant but this did absolutely nothing in terms of being an antiperspirant. I cannot use this because it literally does nothing to decrease sweating and doesn't keep me dry at all. I noticed dampness in less than an hour and I don't consider myself a particularly sweaty person. Super disappointing

i wish i could give this 0 stars
Purchased

let me first say that i understand natural deodorant. I've used different kinds on and off and I get its never going to be like the aluminum-based stuff. also im not afraid of sweating or bo... we're human,it happens. that being said, this is hands down the worst deodorant I've ever used. it does have a great smell but, for me, it didnt last more than a few minutes. then my stink just progressively worse throughout the day. everything smelled...clothes, jackets, sheets, bleh. i stopped completely this week and I'm not wearing anything and smell tons better. sorry birchbox...i wanted this to work but it just doesn't. looking into a subscription-based natural brand now and if its better than nothing at all, it'll be better than arrow.

Not "odor-busting" as described
Purchased

I had been looking for an aluminum-free deodorant for awhile, was glad to see Birchbox offered a smaller product at a lower price to test it's performance. Unfortunately, this product did not perform well whatsoever. It did nothing to prevent odor (I don't sweat excessively), plus I was surprised at how much I had to apply for it to feel somewhat effective (one day I applied 4 times). I hate to admit it, but I couldn't help but think I stunk during the day while using this product (again, not sweating, I work indoors that is kept fairly cool). I continued to use for approximately 3-4 weeks to see if my body needed to adjust, but no luck. I have since switched to another (affordable) product not sold by Birchbox and it's working great. I had high hopes, glad I didn't spend too much money on it.

Doesn't Work As Well As I Had Hoped

I have a hard time finding deodorants that work well for me but at the same time, I am interested in aluminum-free. I tried this hoping that it would be The One, but it ended up wearing off within a couple of hours. I spent the rest of the day self conscious because I was overly sweaty and smelled of B.O. Had to throw it out, unfortunately.

No...just no...

I was so sad that this stuff sucks. Great price and packaging and smells good, but it doesn't work. About an hour after putting it on I start getting sweaty and smelly. Doesn't work when you are working 12 hours days.

Majorly disappointed
Purchased

I'm a huge BB fan and I was really, really eager to try this product. It wasn't even summer when I tried using it and the results were terrible. Major stink halfway through the day. The product itself smells amazing, but it really DOESN'T work. :(

Somehow makes me smell worse
Purchased

I wanted to give this stuff (and weaning myself off anti-perspirants) a solid try, so I've been using this for 2 months now. Which should be ample time for my body to acclimate to going off the aluminum. This product not only doesn't keep me from being stinky, it actually makes me smell noticeably worse than if I don't wear any deodorant at all. So much for that experiment!

Didn't work for me.
Purchased

Maybe it's just me but this didn't keep me dry nor did it keep any odor at bay. It doesn't smell bad itself and I liked the gel consistency, though.
