Don't use this if you want an antiperspirant, but to me it seems unhealthy to try to stop the function of perspiration glands on a daily basis. We perspire for a good reason.

Apparently for some people, it doesn't keep them odor-free all day, but for me, it does. Because of that, I've used it daily for at least two years. Try it, and if it doesn't work for you, move on to something else.

If I'm involved in intense physical activity, I shower afterward and then reapply. Works for me.

On the rare occasions when I'm trying to limit perspiration, I use an antiperspirant. End of my story. :-)

Same here. Controls odor, but goes on oily and never really feels dry. My biggest gripe (like others) is that after a week, my armpits started tingling/itching 30-minutes after putting it on. Two days later the skin peeled (yes, exactly like a very bad sunburn peels). Unfortunately, I noticed this during a reception in a sleeveless dress (I used regular brand that day because I didn't want to risk a new deodorant). So I had lovely white patches of dead skin under my arms (tried scrubbing in the bathroom, but no amount of scrubbing would get it all off). So I danced the rest of the night with my arms down!
My husband, however, has used this for 2 weeks and no peeling so far. Whatever's in this stuff that makes skin peel, different people seem to have different tolerence (although, I've never had sensitive skin). Either way, I've moved on to crystal. The jury's still out with my husband, but be forewarned that this deodorant may (or may not) make your armpits peel!

Stains & Peels

Pros

    • Irritates Skin
    • Stains Skin Orange

    Best Uses

      Comments about Tom's of Maine Long Lasting Natural Aluminum Free Deodorant Stick, Unscented, 2.25 oz:

      This is without a doubt the strangest deodorant I have used to date. Why is this: 1) It has an unpleasant odor and is NOT unscented. 2) It seems to cause varying reactions to just about everyone's skin I see posting consisting of blistering to just plain skin peeling similar to post-sunburn. 3) On my armpits, it not only made my skin peel, but turned the underlying skin a very unsightly orange mottled color after about a week. Waste of money and into the garbage it went.

        I have many allergies and break out from other deodorant products that I have used. I have no rash and no itching with this product. I use other products of TOM'S and love them because they are natural and use no animal testing. I have recommended this product.

              Used for years - effective & doesn't have chemicals like other deodorants. Antiperspirants not good to use in my opinion and not many plain, natural deodorants out there other than this one. Do not have to buy product often- it lasts for months.

              General body odor is not a problem for me. I don't mind perspiring naturally and avoid anti-perspirants, which doesn't leave much of a selection. I don't like scented deodorants.
              When a deodorant fails to give any protection at all, I give it the boot immediately, because my need is easy to control. Booted this one.

              I think the product is just too waxy for me, and I could swear it makes me sweat more than I normally would. I'm in Texas--VERY hot and humid---and this product just makes things worse.

                Comments about Tom's of Maine Long Lasting Natural Aluminum Free Deodorant Stick, Unscented, 2.25 oz:

                Tom's of Main Odorless Deodorant is the best I've found for several reasons...

                Antiperspirants may be unhealthy because they inhibit the natural behavior of our sweat glands. This possibility concerns me, so I choose to avoid them and use a simple deodorant instead.

                Most anti-perspirants and deodorants contain aluminum as an active ingredient. Studies have show aluminum may cause damage to the body and brain. Tom's of Maine is one of the few companies who produce products for people sensitive to these claims. (I use their toothpaste because I have a bad reaction to artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and Nutrasweet used in Crest, Colgate, etc.)

                It is true this deodorant goes on a bit oily, but I simply wipe with a paper towel and it is perfectly dry and won't stain my clothes. I cannot say how well it works for women who shave their arm pits.

                If you find Tom's Deodorant does not keep you odor free all day, then you may need something stronger. However, you also risk side-effects of stronger, unnatural chemicals. I prefer to simply re-apply when needed.

                    This product burned when i applied it, and after only a few weeks, discolored my underarms. Now that it is summer, i am self-conscious about raising my arms as these patches are large and obvious. I have purchased and am using a skin lightening gel, but it has only lightened the affected areas a little - still quite obvious.
