gave me rash!
Purchased

I don't usually have sensitive skin, but this gave me a rash! the whole area was all red. Regular deodorants do not have that affect on me. Just this. kind of ironic, the natural version makes me break out!

I had high hopes for this deodorant because I LOVE arrow's lip balm. It didn't cross my mind that it wouldn't work well enough or last throughout the entire day, so I was bold and put it on in the morning before work. Well, by about 3pm I had to do a double-take as I thought I got a whiff of my armpits... and they did NOT smell good. I was shocked, considering this is supposed to be for their 'active' line... all I was doing was sitting at my desk at work all day; I can't imagine relying on it to keep me dry and stink-free during a a workout! Major bummer.

Didn't work

I was really looking forward to this since it is an affordable natural deodorant. I started to smell an hour or two after wearing it even working in a cool office environment.

smells good in package but didn't work...
Purchased

I've seen some of the other reviews complain about the scent, I like the citrus scent. I do agree the packaging is small for $9 however I can deal with that as well. I'm a huge Birchbox fan and am buy products that I try every month. So the first time I used this I had to go to our kids flag football game and it turned out to be a sunny day. This was 45 min in the sun and on my way home, (i'm wearing a tank top) I could smell my BO (body odor), not the I can smell my deoderant working but the I smell like the stinky middle school kids that forget to put on deoderant and then run around and play all day. It was more than just a musky smell but actual stink. So I thought, I'll try it on a work day when I'm in the office and I didn't smell myself during the day but in the evening when I changed my clothes, I could smell BO on my shirt and an little on my armpit as well. I would love for this to work. I'm slowly trying to make healthier changes in my life but it just doesn't work for me :(

Didn't work for me
Purchased

I've tried a few aluminum free deodorants before and figured I'd give this one a try. Unfortunately the scent just didn't mix well with my body chemistry, and I could also still smell my sweat mixing in, which didn't smell great. Wish it worked for me!

Disappointed
Purchased

I was super excited to try this deodorant and love the smell, but after about a week of use it started to give me a painful rash under both of my arms. Needless to say I'll be going back to my old deodorant...

Not so much
Purchased

I forgot to wear deodorant one day a few weeks ago and the results were that I smelled like a stinky pre-teen who doesn't know they need to use deodorant yet. The day that I used this product produced exactly the same results. In all fairness, I do struggle to find products that work well with my chemistry. However, this one was worse than any other I've tried. Sorry, Birchbox, it's a no-can-do.

Worst "deodorant" I have ever used
Purchased

I tried this deo three days in a row until I was too embarrassed to try it again. I can't imagine wearing this to workout in--I was doing light housework and I got embarrassingly stinky! I tried wiping my arm pit area clean and reapplying and even after reapplying this stuff FOUR TIMES I smelled like body odor again within minutes. There was dampness, there was odor--this product does nothing to neutralize smell or fight wetness. It was like using no deodorant at all. I am very disappointed to have paid almost $10 for this tiny bottle of uselessness and will be VERY HESITANT to make a purchase from the Arrow line ever again. Terrible!

Smells great, but leaves me soaked
Purchased

I was very excited when I first received this product. The size, look, feel, and smell of the product are spectacular. However, in function, my underarms were visibly wet. I am very apprehensive to keep trying the product, as armpit stains are not an attractive look nor are they comfortable.

It just didn't work for me
Purchased

First, I love Birchbox and was very excited when they announced they were releasing their own line. And I looove the color enhancing gloss and can't wait to try the rest of the line.
That being said, this deodorant did not work for me. It lasts for about 2 hours and then I start to get really stinky. Irretrievably, awfully stinky. I also bought one for my mom and she had the same experience.
I really wanted to love it, but it just wasn't for me. But like with perfume, it's just something that will be determined by your individual body chemistry.
