Great as antiperspirant but stings like hell!
Posted by fromstrawtomore on Sep 18, 2012
This is possibly the best underarm antiperspirant, either natural or chemical, I have ever used. Three sprays under each arm provides fantastic resistance to sweating. Using this magnesium oil elsewhere on the body is more problematic because it STINGS and BURNS quite a lot. So I have two pump packs, one 100% pure for use as an antiperspirant and one diluted 1:2 (oil:water) for muscles. Even with that dilution it stings, but it's tolerable.
Absorbs well but itchy
Posted by 4711591714654111854 on Nov 06, 2012
I think it absorbs good, likely better than the pill forms, but this causes very annoying itching and almost burning like sensation under my arm pits when I use it as deodorant.. It does that 6 time outta 10... Doesnt cause that effect every time, nor in anyone else in my house hold who's used it, perhaps I just have a different reaction to it... Placed anywhere else on my skin doesnt cause that effect either strangely...
Bottle Has No Security Seal

A convenient single-ingredient product for external use, make sure your skin is not cut or it will sting. You can always add distilled water to make it less concentrated. Works great as a deodorant, a good alternative to clays, most deodorants have undesirable ingredients.
Great Product - junk sprayer

The product itself is great - but the sprayer broke after the first use.
Pure Magnesium Oil
Posted by Reviewer2228158 on Aug 18, 2011
Using this along with magnesium tablets to increase my daily intake.Currently I'm taking extra magnesium as studies have shown magnesium raises athletes’ testosterone levels. Does cause slight burning sensation when first applied to skin.
More cons than pros for me
Posted by bODYhACK3r on Jan 07, 2014
Pros: -Cheap, one bottle lasts a month aprox. -Best absorption except injected, oral absorption is poor in comparison. Cons: -Takes aproximately two hous to completely absorb unless you rub the skin every now and then. -Often it causes irritation, especially if rubbed to aid absorption or in areas like thighs where in fact I had to remove it because of the urticaria. -The spray dispenser doesn´t work and I had to pour it myself, a mess. All in all I won´t be using mag oil for my magnesium needs anymore, but if you have patience and a non-sensitive skin then is the best magnesium.
Crystals Blocked the Dispenser
Posted by energetyx on Mar 06, 2014
This magnesium oil doesn't leave too much of a sticky residue, nor does it smell bad (the last brand I used smelled terrible). The only problem is that there were a lot of crystals in the bottom of the bottle which blocked the pump dispenser after just a few sprays. I contacted the manufacturer about this and they didn't provide any help. I bought a new dispenser bottle and filtered out the crystals, but probably won't buy it again.

Easy to use but feels awfully sticky and it burns/ tickles like crazy! I have to wash the oil away from my skin after letting it absorb about an hour.

The magnesium is in water and when sprayed any residue on the nozzle will harden like when salt water dries so it is important to wipe clean after each use. Also this can burn if used on nicked skin and is drying so you will want to follow up with coconut oil or some other moisturizer. I didn't notice any effect in terms of feeling physically or mentally better after using this for a month, but that doesn't mean it doesn't work as a supplement. I've never had issues with my magnesium levels because I eat a proper diet so I won't be reordering.
I have never used magnesium oil before.

It seems ok but I have nothing to compare it to.
