Tom's of Maine Women's Antiperspirant Deodorant Unscented -- 2.25 oz
I've tried a few natural deodorants and they never worked as well as the bad chemical stuff, so I always ended up going back to my stick of Degree. I figured I should try it out again after seeing other great reviews. I'm glad I did! I work in the restaurant industry, so BO is not an option! So far it's kept me dry, which I'm sure helps keep down the BO. I also like that it doesn't feel all gooey and gelatinous under your arm… HUGE PLUS!
I haven't used it on its own, so I can't actually say how good it is solo. I layer first with Tom's unscented antiperspirant, then Tom's citrus roll on deodorant (included below). Together, I've yet to have stinky pits. I apply it right after the shower somewhat liberally and it works all day. It might seem like more work using two products, but it's a heck of a lot better that wiping chemical nastiness on your body IMO. It's winter now, so I hope this pans out in the summer!

I first started using Tom's deodorant a couple months ago but realized the one I purchased didn't have antiperspirant -- although I have never had problems with sweat/b.o. I did when using a standalone d/o. I bought Tom's antiperspirant to fix this problem, which for the most part it has. Biggest complaint is how hard it is to rub on my underarms, sometimes feel like I'm unintentionally exfoliating my pits (which is not pleasant). I believe the odor protection is good enough, but on hot/busy days I will apply my original Tom's d/o on top of the antiperspirant halfway through the day. I'd recommend to someone looking for a natural product, but caution them about how rough it can be.

I live in the desert. I bought this at the beginning of summer and wore it through the hottest of days. It works very well for a natural antiperspirant. On active or very hot days it will need to be reapplied. I also suggest buying a nice smelling natural deodorant and wearing it over top of this. I did that and it really helped prevent odor. I wrote a more detailed review on my blog but I thought id leave my opinion here.
