I’ve been wearing the same brand deodorant for YEARS now. It works for me, no need to make a change. But I was given the opportunity to try out the Natural Crystal Body Deodorant Roll-On and liked it well enough.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this product has the pink ribbon on the front and a note that it is endorsed by cancer treatment centers on the back. That’s because this deodorant is made of natural mineral salts (only has 3 ingredients) and doesn’t have any aluminum chlorohydrate and is paraben free, both which are causes of concern in the breast cancer research world. It’s also hypoallergenic and fragrance free. I think that’s pretty cool!
On the back of the bottle it says “It is non-sticky, non-staining, leaves no white residue and can be used by both men and women.” Once I read that, I asked my husband to try it with me for a week. I figured two opinions were better than one!
We’ll start with my husband. He wasn’t too impressed. He said the roll-on caught in his underarm hair. He also thought he had a mild body odor by the end of the day and definitely by the next morning. He’d rather stick with his Degree deodorant that he’s been using for years.
I on the other hand didn’t mind the change. I hadn’t used a roll-on ever before and found it just fine. It didn’t make a mess on my clothes which was important for me. I don’t sweat a lot (and didn’t work out this week – just made and ate lots of cookies) and didn’t notice any body odor myself.
I liked the price (bought it at Wal-Mart for less than $4) and liked that it’s natural. It won’t be long before my 7yo son starts to need to wear deodorant. I wouldn’t mind getting something like this for him.
Overall, I think it’s fine, works well enough, and is worth a try, especially if you are trying to go the more natural route.
