I had been using Speedstick Power Gel deodorant for some time and overall it has been ok but recently I decided to try out a new deodorant to compare. What sparked this change was one day I dropped the Speedstick and the gel got all over the floor. I cleaned it up, but I noticed the floor still had a very slippery texture. I kept cleaning it but it was very hard to get it back to non-slippery condition. I figured it if was this hard to get off smooth tile, it must really be sticking to skin!
So I started looking at some alternatives and decided to try one of the natural deodorants. I found Arm & Hammer Essentials Deodorant for a reasonable price so I decided to try it out. I was thinking it was going to be a white stick, but it is actually a clear stick inside. It has a very good scent that I actually like better than the Speedstick Gel.
Upon trying it out over several weeks, it works very well as a deodorant. It is not an antiperspirant so it is not designed to minimize sweat, but it does keep you fresh all day. Also I noticed it does not build up a residue on the skin which I noticed with the Speedstick Gel so that is also a plus.
Overall I am very pleased with the Arm & Hammer Essentials Deodorant and will probably buy it again once this one runs out. I recommend it if you are looking for a natural deodorant with a great fresh scent at a reasonable price.
Update 2-23-17: It has been about 10 months and so far the deodorant has not even run out yet. I have bought a 2nd one already so it will be ready to go as soon as the first one runs out. Overall I have been very pleased with this deodorant. It still has a great scent and it lasts a long time too!
