Hands down, this is the BEST natural deodorant I have ever used--and I've tried at least a dozen over the years. Just two swipes does the trick (more than that and it feels cakey). It somehow seems to keep me drier than other deodorants, and it definitely keeps the BO away MUCH better than the last three deodorants that I was using regularly (all of which are the more popular brands). The scents are really nice and disappear after a few minutes (unless you stick your head under your arm!), so they aren't too overpowering. I haven't noticed any staining, like with other deodorants I've used. My one and only issue is that it's very hard to wash off--I'm assuming it could be the beeswax ingredient. But I am totally sold on Humble!!!
