Like others have said here, if you're looking to switch to natural deodorants, you'll need to detox first. I detoxed with a different deodorant (it was awful), so I was ready to use this. For the first few applications, it's hard to apply. It's big enough that you only need a few swipes and it will get easier to apply the longer you use it. There are different scents, but the two I've tried are great. I do find that Vanilla Grapefruit works better at masking the smell when I sweat compared to Pure Vanilla.
The only downside to this is that once it's applied, it's powdery, so you have to be careful when putting on clothing afterwards. I've ended up with streaks on black shirts, but they're easy to get off.
If you havent detoxed from anti-persperants with aluminum, this wont work for you! It can take about a month for your pores to unplug themselves after using the conventional stuff. Definitely use this during your detox though!! My armpits detoxed from aluminum laden anti-persperants in 2014. That was not fun but it was worth it- arm yourself (lol sorry) with some wipes to refresh during the day. The aluminum is what stains white tops yellow! Not sweat! Anyway, on to the product...
I love all their scents, but the sport is my top pick. This applies easily to the skin, no waiting for it to warm up, but it is also not balmy or oily at all. It is a cream to powder formula almost. It keeps me fresh even in the summer. I really notice a difference when I forget to wear anything- this stuff is 100% effective. I am more on the stinky side, so workouts do require extra application- no biggie.
There is a small amount of baking soda, it is the second to last ingredient. This small amount does not bother my sensitive skin, whereas other baking soda formulas caused painful, swollen rashes. It is so gentle, I can apply it after shaving!
Try it! You can get a mini size at Sephora! (perfect for travel :))
