My first impression on opening the jar was: wow, this smells divine! But after wearing this deodorant for two days and smelling the scent all day long, with every move I made, I’m already quite fed up with it! Also, and more importantly, I find it hard to believe a scent this strong is really natural. I think the fact that the ingredients list ‘natural fragrance’ rather than ‘fragrance (derived from essential oils)’ says enough… Besides this, I am also very disappointed with the texture of this product. I really need the spatula to be able to take the product out of the jar, and it is very crumbly, and therefore hard to warm between my fingers and put on. The only reason why I stopped making my own baking soda deodorant is because it was hard to get the texture right – it tended to melt in summer and be rock hard in winter. But if this commercial product is no better, what’s the point? I hope iHerb will start selling Primal Pit Paste, which is similar but does have a great texture both in summer and winter! And has much less strong scents, which are really natural.

I used this product every day for several weeks, and it seemed to really make my blood sugar spike. I just couldn't stop eating after having taken it, despite protein usually being quite filling and satisfying. I've already lost some weight now that I've stopped using it. Also, while it apparently contains only natural flavouring, it smells so strongly of vanilla that my entire kitchen cabinet smelled of it, even with the lid of the container closed! Eew. And finally, I felt the stevia meddled with my taste, but it's too early after quitting the product to know whether that was really the case.

I used to use this product on my hands and as lip balm, which I thought it worked fine as, as well. But the formula seems to have changed. Now it's really drying on my lips, and when I apply it on my hands I get a rash... It also looks very different from the picture, it's much greener and oilier-looking.
