I’m a late 30’s male who sweats profusely from his pits. Like, I need to wear undershirts every day no matter what to keep from ruining all my shirts. So, I have always needed to use a high powered antiperspirant. Those left my pits pretty irritated on a regular basis, so a few years ago, I switched to woman’s Secret antiperspirant. That made my pits feel much better so I stuck with it. Bedrock “fresh stick” is not an antiperspirant, but it’s a fantastic deodorant.
My daughter bought this, and left it counter one day. After smelling, it, I decided to try it (shh, don’t tell her). While I definitely sweated more that day than I normally would with antiperspirant, I decided that maybe I need to stop using all those crazy chemicals and try this natural deodorant instead. After a few months of using it, I realized how much less irritated my pits were. I didn’t even know that Secret was still making my pits “upset” until I used this deodorant. I also noticed that my pits have lost the weird yellow tint my skin use to have. I didn’t even think it was possible to change that.
I have since decided to use a high powered roll on antiperspirant like Certain Dri once a week coupled with this deodorant every day. It works great. I hardly sweat, my pits aren’t irritated, and I don’t stink.
I would have given it a rating of 4 stars because I hate the packaging. I appreciate trying to solve the plastic crisis, but the package needs work. Thankfully a friend told me to squeeze the bottom of the tube instead of having to “finger” it every day. That makes it much more bearable, so I’ll keep it a 5.
Thank you Bedrock!
I always make sure I have a backup of this. This is the 1st natural deodorant I've tried that actually works AND doesn't give me a horrendous rash. I've tried all the ones available at my local stores and I've ordered a few. I had given up before this was released and decided to give it a shot because I like Bedrock Balm. I recommend this to anyone looking for a natural product. I like in hot and humid Florida and it works for me!
Thankful for a friend who introduced me to Bedrock. I have been using this for about 2 weeks- no turning back to my old deo. I really like the smell of this product and the way it glides on. It does a great job of keeping me dry.
Give it a Try - you won't be glad you did.
I am a cancer survivor, many surgeries, overweight and live in Florida. That combination means that my skin is very fragile with contact dermatitis at every scar and crease; add to that, sweat, and it results in painfully red patches in very private places. I have futilely searched for a solution for years. My oncologist suggested your Fresh Stick. Desperation made me try.
Within two hours the pain and redness were diminished. By day three, my skin looks completely healed and all the pain and itch is gone. This product has done what dermatologists and hundreds of dollars have not touched. To say I am convinced is understatement. Add to that, it is invisible and has a pleasant fragrance. The only downside is figuring out the applicator, a small price to pay.
Simple conclusion: Buy this to replace any deodorants, lotions, potions and creams you are currently using. It is worth it.
I have tried sooooo many natural deodorants in the past few years....I even went to my drawer to see how many I currently still have sitting around that don't work and there were 5 in there! Yikes. I had decided I would just have to use my husband's "toxic" deo to help me fight off my smelly pits.....but alas.....I found Freshstick! As I have gotten a little older, I have found that I sweat quite alot and chasing alll my grandchildren around really adds to my sweating! I put on Freshstick after my shower the first night, and the next day there was no smelly pits! And every day since, no smell! I am super pleased and will be ordering more!!! You really passed my test, and I am so happy!
