PRODUCT REVIEW: Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystals
NOTE: The full name of this product is: Deodorant Crystal Blue Twist Up Stick

From the product description:
The only solid crystal deodorant in the world market with Aloe Vera is free of harmful aluminum contaminants. 100% pure and natural, hypoallergenic, 24 hour protection, not-staining and lasts up to one year. Highly recommended by doctors- oncologists, dermatologists, and allergists. Our elegant deodorant crystal combines all natural ingredients to eliminate odor causing bacteria. Aloe Vera is added to soothe and moisturize shaved underarms. Non-sticky, non-greasy–feels like a luxurious skin lotion.
Now my view:
I like this deodorant, overall, but there’s one major problem with it. When the weather turns hot, it doesn’t seem to work very well. I switch to another deodorant for a few months and then come back to this one.
The best way to apply the product is to wet it, roll it on, and then let it dry before putting on your shirt. Otherwise, you may end up with wet spots. Be sure you get good coverage on your underarms, as the product makes a kind of barrier against bacteria.
Also, on a random note, the crystals sometimes fall out of the bottom little by little. I just use a paper towel every few months to mop them up. No biggie, but I thought I should mention it. Some of the reviewers on Amazon mentioned they’ve used it with success on their feet as well but it doesn’t seem to be a universal finding.
This product does a good job keeping me dry, and I’m especially happy I’m not using a product with aluminum. Because of my background, I’m at a higher risk for breast cancer than most women and recent studies indicate aluminum in deodorant may be causing the large increase in cases of breast cancer. This deodorant can also be used by both men and women. The smell isn’t overly girly, in fact, since it’s fragrance free, there really is no scent.
If you use this or a similar product let me know in the comments how you like it.
