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.

      Other deodorants irritated me so someone suggested this. It didn't help me 6 years ago nor did it help my 12 year old who decided recently she does not want to use deodorant with aluminum. This recent purchase was for her.

          Basically works, except in the summer needs reapplication. I love how there are no deodorant stains on my clothes, too. You do have to get used to wetting it to apply it. Don't use a heavy stream of water when doing so.

          It truly blocks odor! I have tried a hundred products to help control underarm odor and all work good for about a half hour and then most will actually make you smell bad afterwards. Then when you apply more it becomes even worse! So this product actually does not have any scent, but works all day long! I mentioned that it will crystallize around the bottom due to you have to wet the crystal to apply and the excess water then dries turning it to crystals. I highly recommend if you struggle like I have to find a great odor blocking product!

            This deodorant is advertised to be used daily, and using it that frequently would DEFINITELY be necessary. After a bit over 24 hours was up, I found that I had developed a strong smell under my arms... far stronger than I normally have.
            As long as you intend to use it daily, it works fine. However, Do Not expect to go two days without a shower when using this product.

              This deodorant is so very effective and reliable. It has nothing in it like aluninum, that is bad for you like many other deodorants do. It leaves no residue,film,or stain on you or your clothes. I have given it to friends and relatives. Each one is as impressed as I am.

              • Daily Use

              Comments about Crystal Body Deodorant Stick, 4.25 oz:

              The new packaging says it lasts a year. It could easily last far longer but doesn't because within about 6 months the crystal comes loose from the plastic holder, falls out, busts, and is no longer usable due to sharp edges. 6 months is still a long time.

              Also, keep in mind that this product still contains aluminum (just in a different form than most deodorants) -- which is likely why it works. There is no evidence at this time that this form is safer than other forms. However, it does contain fewer ingredients, which may help.

              Since you have to wet the stone to use it, it's more difficult to use than a typical deodorant. You have to get the amount of water just right, or either the stone won't move smoothly across your skin, or you'll have water dripping down your side.

              If you reapply without washing your underarms, this will slowly decrease the effectiveness of the stone because you will be contaminating it with bacteria. Running it under water can help to remove the outer layer with bacteria. With this strategy, you can reapply for a day or two and still have decently effective coverage.

              If I really need protection because of a big event, I will use a regular deodorant.

                Comments about Crystal Body Deodorant Stick, 4.25 oz:

                This deodorant really is amazing and I wish I started using it sooner. Lately my underarms have become more sensitive and some deodorants are too strong that they are hard to wash off in the shower and others are not strong enough. Some claim to be clear but still leave a white residue that gets on my shirts. With this deodorant, you don't even feel like you're wearing anything at all, which is why I cannot believe it actually does work at controlling odor. I have always used deodorants that are scented, but I don't mind at all that this doesn't have a scent. I usually wear scented lotions/perfumes, so not need to have a scented deodorant. I was afraid I would sweat more because it's not an antiperspirant, but I've been fine so far. It says that it's good for men and women, but since I'm a woman, I can speak for myself and I'm not sure how it would work for a man or someone who is prone to sweating a lot. It also says it lasts for a year, so you cannot beat that for the price. It says you can even use it on your feet as well. It's all natural and I highly recommend everyone at least gives it a try. If it's not for you, then you just don't use it or can use it along with your regular deodorant for extra protection. If it is for you, then you'll be glad you tried it.
