Micro-Balanced Lavilin Underarm Deodorant Cream -- 0.44 oz
This deodorant has all good ingredients unlike other brands which have aluminum. Why companies put it in is beyond reason. The only con would be the creme goes on stiffly but is worth not having to put it on for several days.

I'm sure that this product may have worked for some people. I have been searching for (and spending a lot of money on) a natural deodorant that actually works, and have yet to find one. This was expensive and didn't come near doing the job it says it will. Wasted yet again more money on that elusive deodorant.

Really works; some caveats.
I've used Lavilin for over 30 years. For me, one application really does eliminate armpit odor for up to a week. I recommend it highly, with only these cautions:
(1) It's not an antiperspirant; just a deodorant.
(2) I shower daily, so I can't say how long an application would last if I didn't.
(3) I always put on a clean shirt after applying it.
(4) I apply a tiny dab to my armpit HAIR only. Rubbed into the skin, it can clog pores, causing an ugly and mildly painful rash lasting several days. The package instructions originally contained a warning about this; I don't know why it has been
dropped. From others' reviews, I gather that some who shave their armpits use it without problems, and I can only assume that they apply it VERY DELICATELY.

Wish I could get my money back
I guess I'm part of a small percentage of people, but this stuff did not work for me at all. A huge waste of money that I wish I could recover.
I did everything as instructed by the company (5 days with no products of any kind and then 4 weeks with only Lavilin; I was so desperate to not be smelly that I was using it daily [at night, as instructed]), and I even tried the complete cycle twice.
Let me provide more context - I work at a computer all day in my home, which is an icebox. So sitting at a desk in a 67 degree house, and by 2pm each day I smelled so bad that I could barely stand myself. Just from working on the computer! I'm extremely cold by nature and am not a sweat-er, so I can't imagine how this stuff could possibly fail for me, but it did.
So obviously, it also did nothing for me at the gym. I got very paranoid that people came to know me as "the smelly girl" and avoided coming near me. I don't know how Lavilin can claim that this stuff is great for athletes. That is the main reason I gave up on the product - I need something much more reliable for workouts. And if it performs this horribly in the winter, there's no way on earth that I'm counting on this stuff in the summer!
I really wish Lavilin worked as well for me as it seems to have worked for others, but unfortunately is just didn't.

It works! It REALLY works!
Love this product. The only deodorant I have ever found to work. And I've tried many natural deodorants. Sometimes I can put it on and it will work for a week, sometimes only a few days, but regardless, it is a great product. All other deodorants didn't work an hour. I was reluctant at first to try considering the price and the "I've tried it all" attitude and was getting frustrated. So glad I tried this!
