The first time I tried this, I forgot and dried my underarms, so wet the stick and applied an ample amount, however, it doesn't really work this way. I experienced a very slight tingly feeling for about 15 minutes after it had dried, which I took to mean it must be doing it's job, but a brisk 30 minute walk to work and my underarms were a little moist. The next morning I applied to wet skin and it worked, dry underarms all day.
Apply to wet skin!
I apply this to wet, hairless underarms straight after showering (I rub it all over my underarm area thoroughly) and then allow it to air dry (just the amount of time it takes me to dry the rest of my body and get dressed).
It won't stop sweating (which is a potentially unhealthy thing to do anyway), but it has stopped my sweat smelling so far as I've tested it. There is no scent (which I prefer, as I hate most fragrance/perfume smells), but it has kept me stench free for 48 hours (with a workout at the end).
I've been using it everyday or every other day (roughly 2 out of 3 days) for about a month, and I'd guess I've used about 1/6 of the stick so far.
Yes, it contains potassium alum, but you just have to do your own research and decide whether you are okay with this or not.
However, you do need to use it in a very specific way for them to work - continue applying until your armpits are dry to create a seal (if you use it for a bit and then put your arm down when it's still wet, the product moves around and you end up with spots without the product where bacteria can develop). Secondly, don't touch-up, because you will contaminate the product with the bacteria from your skin. Also, put it under a stream of water and wash it from time to time. It will ensure there are no bacteria on the product. I keep mine in my room rather than the toilet to keep it away from high humidity. It's all worth it though - I don't smell bad even if I sweat, my clothes don't end up with discolourations underneath my arms. I'm no longer worried about my white clothes.
Why I like this product specifically is that the packaging is much better than most crystal deodorants. They're typically in a really bad quality plastic packaging and they end up falling out at some point and shattering. This one is embedded in a plastic base, not a roll-out so it's more secure and I'm not worried about it falling out or struggling to get it out of the packaging. Will purchase again.
I've been trying natural deodorants for the past year, and every time I get one, I end up being disappointed with it's performance. My latest test subjects were the Bull Dog versions, which did not perform and stayed wet underarm.
I'd heard about this deodorant, so thought I would give it a go, and I'm glad I did. This stuff is leaps and bounds ahead of any of the others i've tried. It is easy to apply and dries very quickly. Once dry, you wouldn't know you were wearing it (which is a big plus for me).
I usually shower twice a day, but the big test for me is throughout the day. I sit in a warm office all day, and then go running or to the gym in the evenings. With all the other natural deodorants I tried, I could sense body order after my day had ended, particularly after going for a run. With this deodorant, even though I had sweated, I had no distinguishable body order.
My favourite thing about this product is how light it is. After application it takes seconds to dry and your under arms feel light, dry and unclogged.
The only thing that took a little time to get used to was the application. The version I bought is not wet, it's a dry stone that has to either be applied to wet skin or run under the tap before application. This may sound unappealing, but i've now gotten into the habit of applying after I shower. I simply pat dry my underarms and apply. Even applying after running under a tap gives less of a wet feeling that using a traditional roll on.
The one caveat here is that if this is your first natural deodorant after using anti perspirant (sweat preventers), you will need to give your body time to detox. When you allow your underarms to sweat after being prevented from doing so for so long, you will have stronger than normal body order, but this will pass after a couple of weeks.
