This is the deodorant we use… which is actually just a “mineral salt” stick of some sort. You swipe it under a very wet, freshly washed underarm and it lasts through the workday, through hard workouts, through everything I’ve ever tried it through.
I will say that it did NOT work the first time I tried it because I didn’t use it correctly. I only gave 3 or 4 random swipes, like I did when I used Degree deodorant. But with these mineral salt sticks, you have to completely cover your underarm and any place odor might sneak out.
While typical chemical deodorants prevent you from sweating, this one creates a barrier against the bacteria that causes the odor. (Note: Preventing your body from sweating is not healthy, as that’s one of the main ways your body gets rid of toxic chemicals!) This is much safer AND is truly invisiblewon’t stain your clothes or be visible at all under your arms, brown people.
Again, because this is designed to create a barrier against the bacteria, you may have guessed how important it is to truly cover every single millimeter of your under arm. I go down a bit into the breast area, and all along the sides, top, and bottom of the undy-arm. Works amazing!
The product listing says it lasts a year. I see it lasting probably two years! Two people are using this one*, and it’s a year old as of March 2021. For under $7 (at the time of this writing), that’s a helluva money-saving, health-protecting deal.
Note… Even though it costs a little more per ounce ($2/oz for travel sized as opposed to $1.54/oz for regular), you may be more interested in the travel size deodorant because the labeling isn’t as gay. The pink does blow me, but after this long I’ve gotten used to it. When I bought the salt deodorant for my son to try, though, I got him the travel size just because it has a gray label! It’s only $3 still, so it’s not like it broke the bank.
*This is a nonporous salt stick. You swap lots of different “things” with a significant other, so we don’t find it untoward to share a hard crystal deodorant rock. Make your own decision; I’m just the messenger.
