I was pretty much just resigned to being low key smelly all the time. It was better than the wacky B.O.-perfume cocktail every other deodorant - conventional OR natural - gave me in the past. I tried Lumē, MYRO, Native, HippyPits, Ursa Major and MORE, to no avail. One of my viewers recommended SmartyPits, and I decided to try one more.
I got done with my day at work wearing a tank top under a blazer - pretty much a perfect storm for stinky pits in Austin, Texas. I got in my car, and I actually said out loud: "wait. I don't smell. OMG I DON'T SMELL." At all. The deodorant is unscented. There was nowhere for B.O. to hide. And nothing, no smell. I'm so, so, SO happy I found this. Finally, something that works.
I've been through a bunch of different types. Everyone is different, and I'm stinkier than most, but for me this is the first deodorant that just works.
The last time I switched to aluminum free it didn't go well. I was just sticky as well as smelly. But Smarty Pits has been working great and it doesn't make my pits feel icky.
It doesn't cause cancer! Also, I smell better. I used to stink and I could not get the smell out of my clothes, even by using vinegar. I believe it was the build up of bacteria, made worse by the prescription strength aluminum filled deodorant. Smartypits is great! I've used it for about a month. It doesn't spread on as easily as regular deodorant but that's not a big deal to me.
Keeps me smelling fresh all day, unlike those conventional clinical strength deodorants/antiperspirants from the drug stores. These natural deodorants also don't cause yellow stains in white shirts since there is no aluminum. I'm so pleased with this deodorant and I am using autoship.
