Rated 4 out of 5 by Libra8418 Good value
Have been using this deodorant for over 1.5 year. I'm satisfied with this product and it keeps me dry throughout the day. I've used it standing up in weddings with no stains! Has a great milk herby scent of tea tree. As with any product do research, one might may work for one person and not work for another.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Marshae Product is not long lasting
I purchased this product because name brand deodorants have caused me to get boils under my arms. I was hoping this would be effective since it's aluminum free. It doesn't keep me fresh long. I get musty in a matter of a couple of hours. I'm not happy at all with the effectiveness of keeping me fresh.

Rated 3 out of 5 by yayimah great brand poor performance
I love this brand. I wanted it to work. It did not. I started smelling after a couple of hours of putting it on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by metrocard Use it regularly
I struggle with non-aluminum deodorants but this is one of the better ones I've found so far. The Chamomile scented deodorant (by desert essence) seems to work better for me, but I prefer the lavender smell on me. Undecided between the two at the moment so have them both.

It stung a lot. When it mixed with my sweat, it smelt really bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HTCHLE Best I have found! Period!
We have been using this exact product for over three years and have been extremely pleased. It works great, smells pleasing and above all, even in the Texas heat, it does what it says, naturally. Those who have posted negative things about the product have seriously lost their minds. Of course different body chemistry will perhaps make a difference in the products effectiveness. Overall, after three plus years of use, we don't look to change anytime soon. And the price through Swanson is the best price I have found from at least 6 different vendors. Keep up the good work Swanson. You guys Rock!

Rated 1 out of 5 by CariS A good base for making your own?
This product only worked for a few hours for me and I couldn't tell if I smelled like tea tree oil or like B.O. So I used it as a base for making my own & I love it.
Mixed it with corn starch, baking soda & fragrance oil, put it back in the container. It's not as solid as I would like but it works for not smelling bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ANDYE Best deodorant I have ever used!!
I have been using this deodorant for appx. 2mths and LOVE IT ! I have found it to be very effective in keeping me dry during my worse hot flashing events!! In addition I look for forward to it's therapeutic benefit.... in that , as I apply it (after showering) the healing tea tree, lavender, neem scent is so refreshing! It soothes me into calmness and prepares me for a better sleep! Makes me want to take more frequent showers just so I can use it more often....LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by nwrockerbabe BEST EVER
This natural product has worked for me when all others have failed. The best stuff ever. I have looked for years for something that was natural and would work and finally found it. Swansons beats the prices of all other stores.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NaturalIndyGirl Doesn't work for us
Hubby & I both tried it and it didn't work for either of us. I work in an office and am NOT a physically active person, but this only worked for a few hours. By the end of the day, I stunk! Even if I didn't seem to sweat much, there was still a fair amount of bo funk wafting out when I raised my arms. I even tried using this at night after a shower before bed; by morning, I was so stinky I needed to wash my armpits before putting on some real deodorant and getting dressed. This is the only Swanson product I've purchased so far that I was VERY dissatisfied with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by elenaforte Now I smell like tea-tree oil.
I thought this would smell like tea-tree oil and LAVENDER, but no. Just the former. I can't trace any lavender, which would be nice, because tea tree oil smells strong and bitter to me.
This does not keep me from using pure tea-tree oil occasionally, but I don't want to smell like it every day. Applying something in the morning with a nice scent makes the day start better, and this stick ain't it.
It also has propylene glycol, which I do not want, but didn't see in the ingredient list before purchasing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by schatzi Dont Buy!!
I am a REAL person writing this review. I would not buy this product. I hardly sweat and I wanted a product that was natual. I bought the roll on and the stick and use them together and after the day is over p/u (I stink) Do not let any other review trick you....this does not work. Do not waste your money look for something else. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NatureGirl10 Effective and economical product
This is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant. It works great as a deodorant. I work outside in Texas heat and humidity all day and simply want to feel odor free. Sweat is nature's way of keeping us cool and with this product, there is no worry about odor. Goes on moist like a cream but dries quickly and never leaves a stain or mark on clothing. Leaves a clean, mild fragrance. Great alternative to using potentially toxic aluminum products that block sweat glands.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jadeite This Stuff Stinks!
I was hoping that an aluminum-free stick deodorant would work for me for health reasons. Instead, I never felt less confident in my life. I perspired, and the deodorant did nothing to deodorize. I will never buy this again--It smells good, but this product stinks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ctron93 :/
Was looking for a good vegan deodorant to try, and this being a good price, I bought it. When I put it on, it smelled great, but I instantly got a rash! I was hoping I wouldn't get any irritation because of the better-for-you ingredients, but I guess not. Also it barely lasted through my 5 hr work shift (I have a desk job if that tells you anything). Smells great but I think some changes should be made!

Rated 1 out of 5 by novie61 disappointed with packaging
I have been using this product for several years. There has been a change in the way the deodorant is packaged. When there is about an inch left it falls out of the container and has to be thrown away because it will not stay in. Of course every product has changed and has not been good for the consumer. The products have been cut done in size and the cost has gone up! Desert Essence should not have change the ingredients or the packaging.

This deodorant cause more perspiration, maybe it's blocking my sweat glands?
Save your money and try another product :-(

Rated 1 out of 5 by CrazedChris Not Long-Lasting
I was so excited to find a natural non-gmo deodorant at a great price. Well, after only a few hours, it loses any effectiveness it has against stink. It is not long-lasting, as it states on the label. Not at all. Even just sitting around the house, it is worse than having no deodorant on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NYCreviewer Becoming less effective
Desert Essence deodorant has become less effective over time. I realize that DE is a company and they need to make a profit, but the ingredients have changed, as well the packaging - my feeling is that the old formulation was superior to what they have on the market currently. Tom's of Maine did the same thing when they were taken over by Colgate...the ingredients and packaging changed...for the worse.
