Burt's Bees discontinued this product...after so many complaints, it's back!!!
I am a man and this is the only natural deodorant that works for me...an I tried just about every single one on the market.
I only have to apply it once in the morning after a shower. On a day in the summer and I am sweating, then twice a day.

This product has a pleasant smell and it works great.

It works good if I am using 2 times per day. Any way it is better than using chemicals.

My husband's picky underarms chafe at almost every other brand but not at this! The smell is eucalyptus, which is manly on him. It also works all day long, even in the summer heat! It does cost a bit more than traditional deo, which is its only downside. We love it!

Hubby and I have been using this product for several years and find it to be very effective. When the can is near empty fill it with water, label it, and use it as an effective room deodorizer. It has gotten a bit expensive, but we don't plan to switch brands.

I have used this product for several years. As a "heavy-perspiration" person I find this to be very effective without any of the aluminum products contained therein. It allows you to naturally perspire and has no pore-clogging ingredients. It is a little pricey, but finding a real deodorant without the other harmful ingredients is difficult.

Burt's Bees Herbal Deodorant
I really like Burt's Bees products; however, I don't care for this one. I tried it twice and the smell is to over powering for me.

Too much alcohol and not as effective as I thought it would be.

Kills Odor/ Not sweat
This does not stop sweat, but it destroys all odor!! Nukes it - and it's natural - no aluminum!

Burt's Bees Skips the Bad Stuff
I used this deodorant for several years. Now, I buy it for my sister and brother. We have all been very satisfied with it. I believe that it is effective, and has very few ingredients. It's easy to see what you're putting onto your body, or what you may be sensitive to, when a company makes a product that's quite simple. I stopped using this product because I felt that I had to use too much of it to be effective. It worked when applied that way, but I didn't like having deodorant dripping down my arms every morning as I left the house.
Pluses are that it smells great, I was not allergic to it in any way, and it is very natural.
Minuses are that it contains alcohol, and is now an SD alcohol I believe, while it used to be a corn alcohol. This can cause irritation if you've just shaved. Forgive me, I don't know tons about chemistry, but just enough to make me suspicious of some things. There are studies out there that suggest that alcohol is not good for you, and should not be used in beauty or skin products as much as we do use them here in America.
Another downfall for me was that when the company was sold to new owner ship, the price remained identical while the number of ounces sold in the bottle went down by two.
Overall, though, a good product to try.

Herbs and Spice - all things nice
Having used another natural deodorant for several years, I'm used to applying deodorant several imes a day. With Burt's Bees herbal deodorant I apply once or twice and am satisfied. I smell like a yummy herb/spice cabinet :) The only suggestion I would have would be to make a more feminine smell. None-the-less, I enjoy this product.

great on feet
I have the worst smelling feet out of anyone I know. I find this product works great and even better than some of the products designed for feet alone. The smell is great as well. Try it and you'll love it.

Smelled great, didn't work.
Totally ineffective, even at my office job. The alcohol-based spray stung on freshly-shorn armpits, too.Smelled great, though!

This deodorant has a strong scent; more of a manly scent. Did not like it on me.

I purchased 2 of these - one for me and one for my 14 yr old son. My son loves it! He likes the natural, woodsy scent and says that it really keeps him from stinking (he's a soccer player). I am a runner, and have found it to be effective for me as well. It seems to last throughout the day. My husband, on the other-hand, did not find it effective enough for him.

The only one that works for me
I've tried every herbal/alternative deodorant mankind has to offer. The crystals work 'okay' but were never good enough. The sticks... well... just suffice it to say that they didn't work at all. But this spray works magic even on the hottest of days.

Wonderfully scented, effective deodorant.
The scent of this deodorant is very pleasant and one feels fresh most of the day.
However, I would prefer to use a roll-on version of this deodorant instead of the alcohol-based, aerozol type.
I have switched to a "natural" type deodorant like Burt's Bees, without the use of metals and other artificial products that are normally found in conventional deodorants and antiperspirants, and I don't see it to be less effective. Certainly worth a try.

I have tried the salt based deodorants and they didn't seem to work and left my skin irritated. Burts Bees smells wonderful and really works.
