I have been using natural deodorants for about 8 years now. I have learned natural deodorants do not stop you from sweating but make the smell more bearable. I have used several brands and generally speaking they all work about the same. I like the consistency of this brand....it is comparable to the Routine brand. However I feel Routine is a superior product. I like the smell of the Meow Meow but it seemed to almost produce a smell that I didn't care for. I have worn it for a week+ now in all weather conditions as it has been 80+ degrees to 40 degrees this past week. For the everyday wear it does a good job. No staining on my clothing and I didn't feel overly sweaty. However when I ran in a half marathon this weekend in 80+ weather it definitely gave me the "funk" smell. I have worn the Routine in a half and the smell was much kinder. I do however love the ingredients in this product. I do not have a rash from wearing it. I don't worry about what ingredients I am putting on my underarm because I know they are all kind. The consistency is good and works into your underarm well. Perhaps I will try a different scent and that may work better for me. If you are comparing between the Routine and this for half the cost I think it is worth the try. Like I said I will order again in a different scent and hopefully that will work better for my workouts!
