I was skeptical at first, especially after opening and smelling what seemed like such a strong scent. But this is easily the most effective, odor and sweat preventative, natural feeling, not sticky, and deliciously scented underarm product I've ever used! My Husband was instantly jealous and wanted his own tube!
The scent reminds me of the spa. It's clean and fresh and not overpowering. I still sweat while working out but I don't stink. I like that there's no baking soda so I don't get those gritty clumps in my pits. I'm super satisfied and have signed up for the subscription. Would recommend!
Okay - so I've tried every natural deodorant out there; Schmidts, Native, Tom's, Dove, Routine, you name it. I've even tried the paste that you rub under your arms and the crystal where you're playing with essential oils. These are fine on a day where I don't sweat at all but the moment I go for a run, do some cardio, or even get a little nervous, I smell like B.O. and a hint of whatever oil/fragrance was in there. I've tried the "you just have to do it for 30 days so your body can adapt" bullshit where I stink like an animal for a month pretending that suddenly I won't after this magical period of my body adapting - only to still stink at day 40. All of this to say that Human Essentials is the first natural deodorant I've used that actually works. That actually smells good and didn't require an "adjustment" period. I was wearing Old Spice one day and Human Essentials the next. I smelled good. I got compliments on how fresh I smelled. I literally (and this is no exaggeration) ran 100 miles wearing this stuff. An actual ultra marathon and still smelled good. Safe to say I am a fan. Works great. Smells great. Looks great. And you're taking care of the environment. I have the blue and green one and look forward to trying out the other scents. 10/10
