This deodorant is an utter revelation. I first started experimenting with non-synthetic deodorants about fifteen years ago and have consistently ruled out any with bicarbonate soda as an ingredient as I find cumulative use causes underarm rashes.
For the past few years I have alternated between the Woohoo sensitive deodorant paste (which is unscented) and the Schmidt’s Geranium sensitive deodorant. These are good quality deodorants but the packaging for both drives me crazy as I am really trying to limit the plastic we use as a family. The glass jars from Mäesi look so beautiful in my bathroom cabinet and I love they can be repurposed or refilled.
I also cannot get enough of the fresh rose geranium scent of this buttery-soft deodorant (which washes off one’s hands cleanly after applying) - it’s feminine and subtle.
But of course, all of these considerations would be irrelevant if this deodorant wasn’t as superbly effective as it is. I won’t be without it from now on, and find once-daily application straight after the shower is ample for the day.
It’s also great on other areas of the body where you might get friction - I’ve been popping it on the backs of my heels as I am wearing in some new shoes and have found it sufficiently protective to prevent excessive rubbing - no blisters!
Can’t rave about it more (and I rarely, if ever, write reviews on the many lacklustre products that have crossed my path). Love that it’s Australian made too.
