Editor's Rating & Review
I wish this was a body fragrance stick so I could slather lavender all over myself. But alas, I must confine this moist, soothing, propylene glycol formula to my armpits. Apricot, Lemongrass and Unscented round out the scents, which effectively mask body odor all day under cool conditions. The deodorant contains no anti-perspirant, so it's still possible to sweat through clothes. Fun fact: It uses the same plant that helps preserve beer to inhibit smelly underarm bacteria.
Tom's of Maine Natural Long-Lasting Deodorant Stick Reviews
Didn't work at ALL.This deodorant didn't work for me. Gross fact: for awhile I had terribly dark, itchy armpits. It felt so incredibly uncomfortable, like I just HAD to scratch it. The doctor said it was probably eczema, and likely caused by my deodorant, since that's the only product goes on your armpit. I had been using the standard Secret antiperspirant combined with deodorant product, and decided to switch to something without aluminum or alum, since I'd read online that some people have an allergic reaction to it and have itchy armpits (my grandpa actually has that problem). Even though I'd been using the same type of product for years (Secret), I figured it wouldn't hurt to try something more natural, and the reviews for Tom's of Maine Deodorant were really good. Another TMI fact for youâ€”I sweat. A LOT. So I wasn't thrilled about not having an antiperspirant, but I was pretty desperate to get my armpits to stop itching, and all of the reviews promised that you wouldn't smell bad (although you'd be sweaty). I picked out the apricot scent. It did in fact smell very nice in the package. I liked that it was the standard twist up deodorant packaging. However, the product itself did nothing for me. I was sweaty AND smelly. It was almost worse than not using deodorant, because my armpits smelled like body odor AND apricot! Even on days when I wasn't physically active (sitting in a chair at work mostly), this didn't deodorize at all! My eczema did seem to get a little bit better, and I do appreciate that Tom's of Maine sells only natural, sustainable and responsible products. However, this particular one didn't work for me at all. Fortunately, I bought a new stick of deodorant WITH anti-perspirant (maybe also Secret?) and my eczema continued to go away. — 1 year, 10 months agoLipglossandSpandex | 520 reviews
