I've tried a few different natural deodorant brands, and this one was average, if not a bit better. It has a nice application, though it does appear white if it accumilates or is thick and can be tough to apply if it's cold. I enjoy the lavender fragrance, and it seems to protect any odor for most of the day. By the end of the day, though, you'll need a shower or to clean your arm pits if you don't want any natural odor before bed. If you're particularly active in a day, you'll probably need multiple applications as well. It also seems to have some antiperspirant abilities, though I don't have those kinds of issues, it's hard to speak to it working in that way. I just notice there isn't a sticky feeling I've experienced with other brands and no adverse reactions such as breaking out or pain in my underarms with daily use. All in all, I'd say give it a try if ingredients matter to you, it might work better for you than for me.
