    I have used Meow Meow Tweet cream deodorant for a while now. I shop cruelty-free and even before I shopped CF I ended up using baby powder more often than not. I sweat and I found that the sticks all mixed with my body chemistry in a bad way and I ended up smelling funkier than if I used nothing at all. I do not have that problem with the Meow Meow Tweet cream. They also have a stick now!

    I’m thinking about trying Native deodorant – would also love to hear people’s feedback!

      Native deodorant is AMAZING. Profoundly, amazingly, wonderful. I’ve tried many natural deodorants and Native blows them all out of the water. It is a true game changer.

        I started using Native this winter, though I had never really tried natural deodorants before. I would still get sweaty with my old deodorant/antiperspirant and sometimes even smell regardless, so I figured I might as well give it a shot. I have the Coconut Vanilla scent, and it smells AMAZING. It definitely wears off though, I’d say at about 16-18 hrs, so I’ll usually reapply before heading to the gym after work. And it does leave some white residue on dark clothes. We’ll see how it works in the warmer months, but I can definitely say that so far, it isn’t worse than any of the regular antiperspirants I’ve used in the past, and at least it isn’t full of toxins.

      I just started using Native and I’m impressed. I sweat while riding my horse on Monday when it was 90+ degrees. But no odor afterwards.

    I’ve used this deodorant crystal for the past 10+ years and love it. I work out and play sports and never stink! Your body may need some time to get used to it, so give it a chance.

    I’ve tried Lavanila’s stuff. It’s fine for a sedentary, low-stress day – but if you’ll be active OR have a have something intense going on at work – big meeting, stressful interactions with teammates, bosses, or clients – it won’t cut it.

    I’m wearing Old Spice Bearglove, not the antiperspirant. I found it surprisingly non-masculine.

    I use the Ursa Major deodorant and really like it, and have friends that swear by it as well. It goes on like a normal (chemical) deodorant and usually lasts well during the work day, but I carry it with me every day because I find that if I am going out or working out after work I’ll need to re-apply. I say go for it! 🙂

    I use Schmidts (stick formula, not cream). It’s inexpensive and works great, even survives the gym.

    I use Soft and Dri aluminum-free (not sure if that counts as “natural”). I made the switch after I got a fantastic pro tip from the dry cleaner. I brought in a hopelessly pit stained white silk blouse, and the dry cleaner said it isn’t sweat, but the aluminum in deodorant that causes pit stains. I ditched my aluminum deodorant about a year and a half ago and haven’t seen a pit stain since. The aluminum free doesn’t work quite as well as the regular kind, but for me the trade off was well worth it since I now don’t have to deal with pit stains anymore.

    I’ve been using the Lavanilla stuff for a couple months. The ‘active’ one works pretty well for normal day wear, but I’d be open to trying others. The others are ok for about 8 hours and then i feel like i need to refresh.

    I ditched my collection of 4 different prescription strength antiperspirants thanks to Piper Wei deodorant. It’s unique in that it contains charcoal. It makes it through hot yoga like a champ. I do feel like I need to reapply each morning, regardless of when I last showered, but it lasts all day. Love love love!

    Pro Tip: A trip to Germany may just be worth the discounts you can get on BOSS. (I work at a German company and I’ve literally sent coworkers with the names of dresses I like so they can purchase it for me.

        I would say around $200. Bonus of course is if you buy them at a duty-free (there’s definitely one at the Stuttgart airport)

    I made the switch to natural deodorant about a year ago. At first I couldn’t use ones with baking soda without being irritated, so I have mostly used Meow Meow Tweet (the baking soda free one). Didn’t try Lavanilla bc the reviews seem consistently a little weak.

    I feel fresher than I did with real deodorant. I also like putting rubbing alcohol and moisturizing toner under my arms a few days a week, kills everything so you smell fresh. Hand sanitizer also does REALLY well at that if you’re out an in a pinch.
