Several months after proving that the Human Heart Nature deodorant roll-ons do not work for me, I gave this All Natural Deodorant Stick a try. I bought it online together with my other Human Heart Nature staples.
Its tea tree oil scent is very prominent upon opening the product (which is good and promising), but I find it a little too hard to be glided easily on the skin. I noticed that my skin turned a little red due to the difficulty in applying. Maybe the formulation can be softened a bit for better spreadability. My technique to improve its spreadability is to make a streak using my fingernails backwards. That way the product’s surface is already vulnerable to give away the product to my skin upon contact.
Guess what I’m on the 2nd week of using it today and I still smell powder fresh!!! Considering I commute to the office, I’m so happy with this.
I think it also worked well especially because I let my underarm dry well first before applying. As in no hint of moisture before applying this. Maybe that’s what I’ve been doing wrong when using the earlier deodorants: applying to a damp armpit.
I hope to use this product for life because of its benefits and I would now essentially give up my Lady Speed Stick. I hope this won’t fail me in the future!
Update as of August 2017: it was within the month of May when this product lost its effectiveness on me. I started smelling terribly again due to my excessive sweating. In June I started using Driclor, which tamed my sweat glands and consequently the odor.
