The product shipped within a day of ordering and the package came as promised with no plastics and fully recyclable. The only part that may not be recyclable is the shipping label, I'm not sure. My first reaction was the size, the tube was smaller than I expected; however, this is my first time ordering a zero-waste deodorant so the size may be on par with competitors. The tube itself is about three inches tall and holds 1.5 fl oz. The second thing I noticed was the scent. The scent was definitely stronger than I expected. If I were to order this one again I would opt for the fragrance-free version. The lemony scent is not quite feminine enough for my taste.
After a month of use, I find the product to work great on cooler days, but it just doesn’t hold up in Southern California’s heat. On hot days I find myself applying it at least twice a day. Hence the three star. If I was in a colder climate this would get five-stars.
I’ve been through many types of natural-ish deodorant in order to avoid aluminum, but nothing quite controls odor and wetness all day. I’ve been pleasantly surprised that this deodorant is so effective, has a wonderful fresh scent, and keeps me dry for most of if not all day. And best of all, it uses all-natural ingredients and no plastic packaging. It’s a win-win.
I love the eco packaging, both the product itself and the way it was shipped. Letting the deodorant soften per the instructions is imperative for easy application - and less is more, you won't need as much as you think! At first application the unusual lemongrass scent is sweet and lovely, like lemon Pez candy. Hours later the scent is mellower and more earthy but still pleasant, and my underarms stay fairly dry even with activity. This stuff WORKS!
I really wanted to love this product... but after a week of use I found my skin was too sensitive and starting peeling (ouch!), likely a reaction to the baking soda, so unfortunately I won't be using this particular deodorant any longer.
