I have been using this for about 3 months. I love using it. It applies clean, quick, and oh yes very dry. My main issue is that the bottle claims 48hr protection. I can smell myself by the end of the day. I don't have that issue with any of my traditional deodorant. I bought this because I was in a sling and developing heat rash from my wrist all the way up my shoulder. I used this on my arm to help prevent the heat rash to spread or get worse. It helped quite a bit in that department, which is why I am giving it 4 stars rather than 3. So to summarize, if you live in TX or are about to go work out, this may not be the deodorant for you.
