Natural Roll-On Deodorant
This is the first natural deodorant I've tried that has actually worked most of the time to prevent odor. I still have moments that I can smell something, but I even had that with anti-perspirants. This is all natural and has a very mild fragrance. I wish it came in a bigger size for a better value. Also, the stick version of this doesn't work as well as the roll-on for me.

Natural alternative to Alum salt deodorant
I used Naturally Fresh branded roll-on for several years with good results BUT developed allergy such that when use itch for days. Found this product as alternative. Plesant sent, effective odor control AS LONG as your inside most of day. It seems to fail on days get to work outside or during sweaty workouts. Has not stained clothes so far and no return of the under arm itch as yet. Still looking for that perfect product in this category.

High Hopes - No Results
I am amazed at the several positive reviews on this product. Maybe it's body chemistry. Observations: 1) purchased for my wife, who didn't mind the masculine, almost medicinie, smell but found it ineffective - so I inherited the two bottles; 2) although I wash before applying deodorant, this did nothing for me as far as diminishing or masking body odor; 3) I seldom have a "locker room" smell from work or exercise, but did while using this; 4) other than the desire to use a natural and aluminum free product, I cannot recommend this product, although we use and like other Desert Essence products..

Works while I am not active.
I bought this deodorant as an aluminum free product while I am pregnant. It works great for most of the day while I am working and in-active. Note this is not an anti-perspirant. If I am doing something active I have to use a different product to control sweat. Overall I feel this is a good product.

Have used this for several years. Smells good, does exactly as claimed, no sweat stains, long lasting, gentle and no harmful toxins. I swear by it.

For a non antiperspirant this product works pretty good. I like the smell of it too. As usual Swanson has good prices to try it.

doesn't work well
I bought 4 bottles of this, and I wish I didn't. I work and sweat and it does nothing to stop odor.I like the smell of it, but if you are going to be active you should not buy this product.

Good for Men
My husband loves this stuff. This is the first natural product that I have truly gotten him to switch to with zero complaints! I highly recommend. It has a very simple earthy smell that suits him also.

Overall...smart and safe choice.
After being encouraged to use a deodorant without aluminum as an ingredient...I've settled on this one. Wasn't sure I'd find one I liked, and embarrassed to say I threw many away. After trying a variety of brands and scents...from health food stores, pharmacies, grocery stores and other websites... I feel safe with this one. Safe that I don't stink, safe from chemicals, and safe from being overcharged!

Perhaps better for the colder months
I really wanted to like this product for its lack of nasties, in the heat of the day it just does not cut it. The product itself smells good and fresh,and it is reasonably priced, perhaps better for the colder months.

I have been using this deodorant for a while now and love the smell and the whole product. I do sometimes have to reapply in the middle of the day, but it beats having all those chemicals right there.

I tried this deodorant because of the reviews. This deodorant mixed with my BO smelled awful.

Must be working--no one's told me I stink. :)
This stuff works better than expected. I have not whiffed even a hint of BO. (And it has been an extremely warm winter.) I hope this deodorant works just as well in the heat of a FL summer.

Finally, no breakouts!
This is a good NATURAL product, aluminum free that works without breaking me out (may be because it has no zinc, not sure). YAAA!!

Finally, a good natural deodorant
I've been using this for over a month and it really works. No rash or irritation like some of the crystal products. Not sure how well it will do in extreme heat, but i'ts been great so far. Completely controls any body odor. As a roll-on it goes on very wet but once dry, it's not sticky. I use a hair dryer to help it dry before getting dressed. Will be ordering more.

Tried other natural products that were not effective all day. This one lasted all day through sweat and dirt and being outdoors in sunny Florida.

I have tried many brands of all natural deordorant. I had settled on one brand that works fairly well.
But then I tried this one...it is GREAT! Works very well and you can't beat the price!

This deodorant is just great!!! I use it all the time :) Nothing works like Desert Essence Deodorants. (I've had one other and loved it)

I found IT! it works!
I ordered this since I have tried many other brands. I love it! I works outside all day and when I got home it was still working. Thank you for this wonderful product.

This is great. Very effective. I tried the crystal before but it did not work for me in the summer heat. Very embarrassing. I thought I would have to use chemicals since I sweat heavily and can get pretty funky on a hot humid day. This roll on is the bomb! kept me smelling fresh and clean all day even in 90 degree heat. I can use the crystal in the winter when heavy perspiration is not a problem but for summer or anyone involved in sports and needs something strong this will work

Dessert Essence roll on deodorant
I have recently purchased this product, I have been searching for a natural deodorant that was both aluminum free and Propylene Glycol free, this product is the anwer to my search, it works and so far seems wonderful. I would recommend this product to all that are searching as I was. I am allergic to a lot of deodorants and someone suggested I don't use any, that is not possible in this summer heat. Can you see me smiling, it works and I love it.

I really like this one, no smell (or very little) and works.

Very Effective Deodorant
I've been looking for an effective natural deodorant. I've tried several products but wasn't satisfied with their performance. Desert Essence provides effective results without harmful chemicals.

Convenient but needs more scent
I was really excited about this deodorant, but after a day filled with skiing I realized that it really doesn't block the B.O., so I only use it when I know I'm not going to have an active day. I do like the fact that my sensitive armpit skin is never broke-out from this product. If you don't sweat much I would recommend this deodorant.

The Best Natural Deodorant I've Tried
When I started switching to all natural and organic products for my face and body, I started using mineral salt deodorant. It was just ok, and would often stop working after a long day. Last summer, a combination of shaving and the dirt and chlorine from the summer camp I help run, left me with a very, very bad skin irritation under my arms. I had no idea how to get rid of it but I came across this Desert Essence deodorant at[...] and noticed that it had tea tree oil in it. I figured I would try it out, given the reputation tea tree oil has with skin irritations. Not only was I extremely impressed at how well this deodorant held up under summer camp conditions but it actually helped clear up the irritation under my arms. Since switching to Desert Essence deodorant, I have never had to worry about my deodorant calling it quits by the end of the day or having any razor burn after shaving. Thanks for making such a wonderful product!
