In our attempt to eliminate harmful chemicals and toxins in our lives, I stumbled across some crystal deodorant. It is either a salt block or salts in spray form which you apply to clean skin before odor and odor is supposed to be prevented. The salts create a hostile environment for the bacteria which cause odor. I was pretty skeptical especially since one stick cost a few bucks and could last up to a year! How many sticks of deodorant do I go through in a year? I don't want to think about it. I'm sweaty....that's all you need to know.
Given my penchant for sweating and smelling when I don't wear deodorant and even sometimes when I do, I decided I was a good test subject. I purchased by very own crystal deodorant stick and hurried home. I showered so that I would have clean skin ready for application. The stick had to be wetted under a faucet or applied to very wet skin. I generously applied it to my skin and held my arms up to let it dry a little. It didn't cause any stinging or noticeable sensations. The test had begun.
I went about my day as normal and then went to bed and when I awoke I didn't smell! There were no chalky marks in my shirt and no staining in my shirt from the crystal. The sniff test was a pass! No smell!!! I couldn't believe it, and I was sold. I picked up a bottle of the spray crystal deodorant the next day, as its application was easier when water was not accessible. I have applied the crystal stick after showers and reapplied the spray about half way through my day with great success. I definitely recommend giving it a try!
I was in no way compensated or supplied by any crystal deodorant companies. I tried and reviewed this product of my own volition.
