Amazing smell! however, does not last too long. Fine if you're using during the day but you may have to reapply by the evening. Tub is on the small side so I use it every now and again to give my skin a break from other harmful deodorants.

All of the powder toothpastes are great. I would not consider using the wasteful conventional toothpaste ever again. These are so much more convenient to travel with and don't leak. Use with a bamboo toothbrush for the best results.

Love the scent & keeps me deodorized the whole day... BUT... messy to apply as it’s grainy, probly due to the beeswax that hardens. Even tried to rub between my hands to soften but no luck. It then falls off onto clothes or bedding... not sure if this was a faulty batch but don’t think I’ll order it again. I was excited but disappointed at the texture.

This is the first natural deo I tried that isn't a roll on and I really enjoyed using it. It goes on easily and smells really nice. Unfortunately I am a sweaty person, so it didn't reduce the amount of sweat but at least I smelled nice. Only downside to this deo is the white marks it leaves on darker clothing. Apply the deo on after you've put your clothes on, much better! I am trying other products, just to see how they work but if all else fails I'd be happy to return to this product.

Was so excited about this product... unfortunately my skin got a reaction from using it. I continued using it hoping it will clear but didn’t so discontinued. Also made my underarm skin even darker than it already is... started clearing up when I stopped using it. Heart was broken really was excited about this one. Could just be that it reacts differently to my skin.

I do like this product, however, it is not the most effective deo putty that i have tried. the product seems to separate quickly
08/10/2020, By Sally
This is my first time using the product. Scent is beautiful but very subtle and fades during the day, but I love the presentation and the use of natural products.
14/06/2020, By Dirk
I like Crede, they are a good brand.

Excellent alternative

I have been using this product for a few years now and I love the scent. The last batch I bought has, unfortunately, been a little messy to use. The deodorant applies very easily, but after a few minutes the ingredients seem to separate on the underarm and the deodorant falls off in sunflower-seed-sized lumps.

This is the best deo putty I have tried. I am on my second jar. Sadly tried a different scent (the lavender one) but it was not at all like this one so will stick to this scent (which is divine and fresh!).
19/11/2019, By Lané
This was my second time buying it. The deodorant was really hard during the winter but worked well. I think it works well for a natural product - it's not supposed to last 24 hours. I love the fragrance. I agree with another reviewer - buying a glass pot each time does not make sense but I'm sure I'll find a use for the old pots. Or maybe there could be a return address for reuse? Overall, really happy with the product.
22/10/2019, By Naz
This product is not effective at all. Even on the coolest of days, it is ineffective. It has a nice smell, but not the right product for me.
19/10/2019, By Tania
Living in Richards Bay, I have struggled to find a natural deodorant that can cope with the heat and humidity. This is the one! It works all day.

Loved this product so much that I ordered it for my Mom. Very good for sensitive skins.
27/09/2019, By Bernie
Love it. I have a sensitive skin and this works for me. Also has a lovely smell.
17/09/2019, By Cape Cook
Although it is grainy when you touch it, once it is rubbed on you don't feel the graininess and the smell is lovely. It has worked really well for me as all other deodorants (even organic ones), cause my skin to go red at times whereas this one never has. I rated it 4 out of 5 as I haven't found out yet how long it lasts in the heat of summer.
11/09/2019, By Sara
Yes it takes some getting used to - the texture is a bit grainy. But other than that I love it. I do yoga and I'm not smelly afterwards. It smells nice and so far I haven't noticed any staining on my clothes (even the white ones).
26/08/2019, By Phyllis
Works well and smell not overpowering.
21/08/2019, By Roelien
Finally - a deo which keeps me decent during an average day. It smells lovely, like roses, and it lasts. After application, I put the residue on my fingers onto areas where I'd put perfume. Smells great all day. Very subtle. I don't think it will last a 5km run in the sun, but it will last the 9-5 workday.
13/08/2019, By Veronica
This product is probably a good choice if you want to go plastic-free. I found that it works pretty well on some days and warmer days not so much. The first time I used it the bottle was warm and the product melted, but it worked a lot better than when it hardened. Not sure why that is, perhaps I applied more as a liquid. I don't like the grainy, sand-like feel it creates on application. I wish there was a refill service because buying a glass jar every time can get quite pricy.
23/07/2019, By Valerie
Smells awesome. Lovely product!!!
11/07/2019, By Amy
I love the subtle smell, and it leaves my skin feeling amazing. It does leave some residue on clothes and on hot days I need to reapply a few times.
24/06/2019, By Ye seul
lovely subtle fragrance and easy to apply. Yes it is slightly grainy but not as bad as my homemade coconut oil + baking powder combination. Difficult to say regarding antiperspirant aspect seeing that it's winter now. But all in all, it's a good product
10/06/2019, By Kristlee
Been trying many plastic free deodorants and I think this is now definitely my favourite! Love the smell and its long lasting.
02/06/2019, By Jessica
I have been using this brand in a different scent for a while now, and decided to try this scent for a change. It smells great, and is just as effective as the other scent I normally get. The clay component feels a bit wierd when applying, but this brand is the most effective natural deo I have tried to date, especially in summer, when you need a deo you can rely on. I highly recommend.
22/05/2019, By Bernie
I absolutely love this product. I have a very sensitive skin. It me smelling good all day. Love the smell.
18/05/2019, By Dee
This is the first natural deodorant I've ever used, and I'm converted!! It's lovely.... And does what it says. Love the gentle aroma.
16/05/2019, By Fran
I was a bit skeptical, but I must say: This product works very well. I am very satisfied.
14/04/2019, By Gen
I have used the Apothecary products on and off for quite a while as they are genuinely natural and work so well. I have tried all the deos but the rose geranium is my favourite. This particular tub has a very delicate scent - but till works extremely well.
10/04/2019, By Stephany
Love this! I don't feel sticky after using it and it smells great
25/02/2019, By Tania
Excellent value for money and it works well.
12/12/2018, By Lucy
No nasties and no plastic and made me smell like sweeties :)
24/11/2018, By TT
Smell is amazing and it works.
07/11/2018, By Amy
This is a wonderful eco friendly alternative and works better for me than a popular non eco roll on. A little bit goes a long way and lasts the whole day.
26/10/2018, By Nadia
Love these deodorants as they don't dry out your armpits like commercial ones.
02/10/2018, By Stephanie
I love that with this, my deo is now another plastic- & chemical-free item in my personal hygiene regime! Works beautifully. I'm a fan!
18/09/2018, By Amy
This is my favourite Apothecary Deodorant Scent. It is fresh and flowery, easy to use and does not stain clothes like many other deodorants do.
06/08/2018, By LOIS
This is a whole new venture for me. It is still early days but I am enjoying using this product. I will be interested to see how it fares in summer. Expensive but let's see how long it lasts. Glad to get away from commercial products.
29/07/2018, By Sara
The smell is amazing, it is hydrating and most importantly it works. I would say that for me it works a 90 per cent regarding covering up any sweety smells. But i love it and will be purchasing again as a treat ocationally. It is a bit pricy in my opinion for what it is...
10/07/2018, By Varsha
I tried this on a search for plastic free deo- and it does not disappoint. the texture for me is fine and the scent is so amazing! I really am happy I have found this! Would be great to have an option to send the empty jars back for refill at a reduced rate. xx
13/06/2018, By hayley
Really awesome product....smells heavily...last the day! Will use it forever!
24/05/2018, By Michaela
Only thing keeping me from 5 stars is the slightly grainy texture. Besides that, I LOVE the scent and it really lasts all day! SO much better than sticky roll on that takes ages to dry, plus this product is kind to the environment! The jar is also the perfect size.
10/04/2018, By Amy
I believe this product is overpriced, but it is effective, smells delicious and leaves my skin feeling soft and happy.
08/04/2018, By B
I must say i am a bit disappointed with this product. I was really looking forward to using it but it is not affective at all for me. I suffer with bad under arm odor and this product just doesnt seem to work at all.
Once again this is just my results and i dont think everyone had a bad experience with it.
26/02/2018, By Christie
It is priced quite high for the size of the container but otherwise I'm happy with the deodorant. It is just as effective as my old anti antiperspirant in combating smell- great scent which lingers all day on a cold day.
16/02/2018, By Ash
Lovely scent, and I'm not usually a rose fan.
It doesn't last the whole day for me when it's hot, but it's strong enough (in a good way, not overwhelming) to freshen up if reapplied.
09/02/2018, By Elke
This beats any mainstream deodorant I've tried. Would recommend it to anyone whther they're looking for something eco-friendly or not.
04/02/2018, By Anon
Much smoother texture than other brands but not strong enough in very hot days
02/02/2018, By Heidi
Lovely scent and works well.
30/01/2018, By Sara
This works surprisingly well! I was a bit skeptical changing from mainstream (chemically laced) deos to this but I have to say it works very well. I do a lot of classroom facilitation and the fact that I still smell fresh after a day's training works for me :-)
17/12/2017, By Tamara
I bought this after seeing a glowing mention of it on the Zero Waste SA Facebook group. I was sceptical, but this stuff really works. I'm not mad on floral smells, but this is pleasant and not too overpowering. It doesn't irritate my skin, even when newly shaved, and it lasts for hours. Just be prepared to wash your hands every time you apply it... otherwise you end up with stubborn residue on your fingers.
08/11/2017, By Khaya
The smell is amazing! Works like a charm :)
09/10/2017, By Lorna
Felt a bit strange applying it the first time, but I'm sold! No sweaty smell after a sweaty day. The scent is lovely but subtle.
13/09/2017, By Samantha
This has a lovely smell and is very effective. the grainy texture is a bit strange at first but the grains melt away within a minute of applying. I like it and will continue to buy it as an alternative with the Earth Ant product which is also excellent.
08/09/2017, By Phyllis
very disappointed with the rose and geranium one. The smell is no different from the citrus one. Not always effective. I will not order again.
17/07/2017, By Tracy
Love the smell but it doesn't last all day though.
Product is a bit granular when applied (probably the bicarb).
Make sure you rub it in well and doesn't come into contact with your clothes, especially black.
Very happy that its a chemical-free, all natural deo that is safe for my sensitive skin!
11/06/2017, By Khushma
I looove it. What a great smell. And it's longer lasting than other organic roll one I have purchased. It was initially a bit abrasive as it is slightly granular but my body seems to have gotten used to it and I know have no issues.
30/01/2017, By Genevieve
Love this scent of Apothecary deo. Love the Apothecary brand. I am so pleased Faithful to Nature are now stocking it. A feminine deo which works does not itch remains smelling good throughout the day.
