Kathleen shared her journey to find the best natural deodorant for sensitive skin. She started with Dove, and then eventually found our women's deodorant for sensitive skin, Freshstick.
She wrote: "I am a woman who’s sweats even when I am cold. And I am not one of those delicate flowers that never gets body odor. Unfortunately, I have very sensitive skin and for years the only deodorant I could use was Dove. I have tried many natural deodorants but until recently could not find any that did not give me a horrendous rash.
Recently I have found two products, Lume and Freshstick, that do not cause the burn-like reaction I get with other products. I liked the Lume in that I didn’t get body odor but I felt that it interacted with my underarm chemistry in a way that made me smell like onions (my husband says I am the only one who can smell this). I found that it also works very well in the bikini area and on the feet and it was easy to apply to those areas.
I feel that the Freshstick outperforms Lume in terms of controlling underarm odor. I love the fact that it is completely in cardboard, and I am trying very hard to decrease my plastic usage. The only drawback, one that I’ve seen on many other reviews, is that it can be a little difficult to apply. I have not tried to use it on my feet but I have used it on my privates with no irritation/rash. Overall, I will be buying this again."
Kathleen, thank you for your honest and heart-warming review. We're glad that Freshstick doesn't make you smell like onions! Good work using our natural deodorant for private parts. We made it all-purpose for exactly that.
