When I was at my parent's house over Christmas I had a bad reaction to a deodorant I used there. So after I came home I started using this crystal deodorant. I tried it expecting it to fail. There was no way a hippy product like this could handle the "I'm starting to smell like my dad" odors that have been emanating from my arm pits.
But surprisingly this thing works.
And it works well.
It's a salt crystal. All you do is wet it and rub it on your pits and presto! you don't stink. I guess it's supposed to create a salty layer that prevents the bacteria from growing under your arms. Sounds hokey but this thing stands up even to hot Hawaiian sweat. And so far I've had no complaints and I've even asked people to take a whiff for the purpose of research, and I always get an "all clear."
And it's essentially a rock so this thing has been lasting me a long time. Apparently I bought this in the travel-sized section on a whim. Now it's taking forever to finish. All I want to do is buy an adult sized version but it's just not letting me.
