I have been using this product exclusively for 2 years now and I can't sing it's praises enough! I sweat a lot, I also workout, also hike and kayak in summer. This deodorant works really well and lasts about 12 hours.

The trick really is to have clothes you've not sweated in while you were wearing traditional anti-perspirants. I have a stack of old shirts and new shirts. I only smell BO when I wear the old shirts. The newer shirts i wear with no smell at all. So, I eventually phased out the old clothes and bought new clothes over time.

I have gone for day-hikes and afternoon kayaking without smelling bad. I apply the crystal each morning, and each night as it seems to last a good 12-hours.

If you want to keep your crystal from falling out of the holder, apply water to your skin rather than the crystal. This will keep water from running down into the holder and loosening the base. But even if your crystal comes out of the base, it's still usable, just keep your crystal wrapped in a cloth of some type.

I have not used this product on my feet yet, but after all the snow we've been having (east coast bliz 2010!) I may start to combat snow-boot sweaty feet smell!

I had high hopes for Crystal deodorant. There were tons of glowing reviews, its ingredient list is short and sweet and I would banish the white marks from traditional deodorants on my clothes forever. However, I have discovered that the benefits are far outweighed by the disadvantages. It takes a full 5 minutes every few hours to apply the product. It drips down your sides. It is messy. It does not curb the odor. I work in an air-conditioned office and lift nothing heavier than a pen or stack of papers during my working hours. And when I would get home and change clothes, my pits smelled like I had just returned from the gym. What gives? I think I will give Crystal deodorant another chance and try the roll-on or the spray, because the stick doesn't do squat.

      Switched to this product hoping it'd be stronger than traditional deodorant sticks as the reviews stated. Not so much.

      Experienced worst odor protection of all the deodorants I've ever used.
      As an anti-perspirant it works alright, but not under any stress or activity.

      Gave this stick a month of daily usage, but to the garbage it goes since it's pretty ineffective.

      Comments about Crystal Body Deodorant Stick, 4.25 oz:

      The reviews are true. This is a great product. It works very well. It isn't flawless though. Once or twice it has let me down a little, but an even lower percentage than the antiperspirants/deodorants I used in the past. Because it doesn't smell or weird chemicals, it doesn't make my shirts smell like deodorants after a few hours and the armpits aren't ruined by the product.

      Exercising: I was skeptical that this would last decently when exercising, but it does a very nice job.

      Aside from the packaging (it is a rather feminine color), my only issue is that it has to be put on when you're clean, directly after bathing. Most of the time this is just fine though.

      Comments about Crystal Body Deodorant Stick, 4.25 oz:

      My favorite deodorant -- and the only one I and my husband use. As other reviewers have noted, this is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant. It works by preventing the growth of odor-causing bacteria. It does not prevent sweating, which is nature's way of cooling our bodies. Thus, this deodorant needs to be used on clean skin that is free of bacteria. Apply it after your shower or bath.

      I prefer the solid crystal rock, not the roll-on made by the same company. The roll-on seems a little sticky. While convenient, the roll-on doesn't work as well for me.

      Comments about Crystal Body Deodorant Stick, 4.25 oz:

      I've used many natural deodorants (Tom's, Kiss my Face & Crystal Essence). One thing most had in common: They only worked well on low-sweat days. However, this Crystal stick lasts me all day regardless of the amount I sweat...it even lasted an entire day which included a 4-hr hike in the middle of the afternoon, followed by an early dinner and shopping. I could not believe I did not stink by the end of the day. It's unscented which concerned me, as I like a light scent to help mask odor...however, you don't need anything to mask odor w/this one, since you won't have any (at least I didn't, but I understand everyone's body's different).

      I agree with other reviewers that it will could take your body a few days or so to get used to 'non-aluminum' deodorants. I believe it's because your body has been used to antiperspirants, which work by preventing your body to sweat. Therefore, when making the switch to non-antiperspirants like this one, your body is going to sweat out all the toxins it's built up in the beginning. Trust me, it's well worth it though. I recommend trying it over the weekend and just doing high-sweat activities to get all those toxins out. Then, you should be fine for work Monday morning.

      Okay for light to no activity days

      Comments about Crystal Body Deodorant Stick, 4.25 oz:

      Tips:
      Wet crystal before applying to pits
      Store upside down (to prevent water from sitting at the base)

      This worked well on days where I did not sweat or exercise. On days that were more high activity, I felt it worked some, but not entirely.

        I had high hopes for this crystal stick...especially after all the great reviews! Unfortunately it just didn't work for me...at all! Even on days when I wasn't active I had trouble. Too bad. I eventually threw it out.

          Comments about Crystal Body Deodorant Stick, 4.25 oz:

          With breast cancer in the family, we all are trying to be proactive. This product takes some getting used to before success is achieved. You have to apply it right after bathing. Give yourself a few weeks as your body adjusts. At first I didn't think it was right for me. I perspired heavily. After a few weeks there was no odor and with a month or more less perspiration. I no longer have ruined clothes from under arm sweat. In our family it has been a product for both male and female with great success. It is economical as it lasts a long time.

            With hormonal changes experienced during my last pregnancy, I was a sweaty mess, even with extra strength antiperspirant deodorant. I added this natural remedy to my daily regimen and it helped tremendously. Would I use only this product for wetness and odor protection? No. But by using it daily, I was able to significantly decrease the use of traditional products. I continue to use it and like it a lot. Plus, it lasts forever, leaves no residue and is chemical free.

              Comments about Crystal Body Deodorant Stick, 4.25 oz:

              For me this works great. I use it daily; some days I sweat a lot, other days not so much. But there are some things you need to know. You may notice that your clothes smell, and as at least one other reviewer noted, it's possible that the rock itself may smell (although mine doesn't). This type of deodorant works by inhibiting bacteria growth on your skin. So no bacteria = no odor. BUT, since you only apply it to your skin, your sweat still may get on your clothes - and bacteria will happily grow there. Since this product does not directly deodorize, if you already smell, it won't do anything. This also means that if your armpits have any odor, and you rub the stick under your arms, then you're wiping the smell on the stick - and it will smell like your armpits. The cure for this is to use a soap that removes body oils. Use a good shampoo, rinse really well - you want to get ALL that off your sensitive skin - and you'll be odor-free all day (well at least your skin will be).
