Reviews For Crystal Deodorant Stick
Based on 27 Reviews
So I'm new to this "no antiperspirant/ anti-aluminum" movement, and I work outside - hence my hesitance to try anything natural. I bought several deodorants from Thrive, including this one. Each one left my underarms sticky, and I had to reapply several times.
Then I tried this one. And it WORKS.
The weird thing is, it has no smell, so that was unnerving, but instead of masking your stink with a scent, it just...stops you from being smelly.
I haven't tried this in hot weather yet, but out of all the anti-aluminum products, I think this one will be the winner. Great product!

My husband and I each have one and they work great! It was hard finding a natural deodorant that worked for my husband, but this one is a winner. Keep in mind this is not an anti-perspirant -- you will still sweat, but you won't smell! ;)

Works great for sensitive skin
I've tried the Native brand deodorant and ended up with a very bad allergic reaction that left huge dark reddish brown marks in my armpits. Although it didn't hurt, it did sometimes itch like crazy! Also Native did not last throughout the day. I switched to this and already the markings under my arms are becoming lighter and this product lasts all day. I put it on after my shower before going to bed at night and it last until the next night. Definitely recommend for someone with sensitive skin and there is no smell to it whatsoever. Sometimes, this worries me for some reason, possibly because I feel like deodorant should have a smell and I've paired it with Tom's brand Lemongrass that has also worked for me, but is completely unnecessary.

It really works!
I wasn't sure this would work, but it really does!
Best natural deodorant!
I've tried it all. ..store bought "natural" deodorants, homemade ones, pit paste brand, and magnesium oil. Some worked, but if they did they left my underarms in constant misery of rashy, raw, and un-dry skin(not to mentin it seemed I was constantly self conscious of wearing short sleeved shirts because of this and not knowing if people could smell me lol) This is seriously magical stuff! As soon as I began using it my pits began to heal! They stay dry, no breakouts or sensitive skin of any sort, and leaves no stains on clothes! And the best part? No stink! !
I don't know how, but this stuff works. Very impressed!
Great foot deodorizer
I find this more effective for foot odor than underarms. I've got a number of people in my yoga class using it now (trust me you don't want smelly feet anywhere near you in the middle of an Arizona summer when you are trying to relax in yoga!)
I think I love it!
It's now my 3rd day wearing this and it seems great! I used to (for years) wear gel deodorant, in retrospect, I think it caused me to sweat more and then the scent kind of just masked it. With this (and it was 88 degrees out yesterday), I don't sweat nor do I stink! And it says this thing last for like a year!
Great for razor nicks
I have used this in the past as a deodorant, and still use it for that purpose from time to time if I run out of my regular stuff, but the main thing I use this for is razor cuts. The "crystal" is actually the mineral alum, and it has an astringent effect on the skin, so it causes your pores to close and will immediately stop even a bad razor cut from bleeding. Just wet the crystal, dab off the blood from your cut, and glide the crystal over your cut. Now you can go about your day without tissue on your face or legs.
I've used dove deodorant as far as I can remember! I decided to try this out. It works amazingly! IT IS NOT AN ANTIPERSPIRANT! It is a deodorant. It prevents odor. I apply it damp and I continue to rub it under my arms until dry. I am odor free all day! My Boyfriend also uses it and loves it!
WOW!! It works for this stinky gal!
I am beyond amazed at how effective this works. I can have rather horrendous menopausal BO, even straight out of the shower. I smell like my husband! I blame it on him, as it began when we got married 6 yrs ago! I am so thrilled with this product - thanks!
Not so good.
I thought this was amazing at first, but after using it for a few months it seems to work less and less for me, and now I am smelling more often than not. :(
I was super skeptical but this ish is lovely! It goes on easily, dries super quickly (I put it on right before getting dressed), and it definitely lasts for 24-48 hours. I'll wear it through a yoga practice and still be fine! Get the aluminum out of your life!!
I love how simple this stone is compared to other brands (such as crystal-which has a questionable ingredient). Plus, it seems to reduce the amount I sweat just a bit.
I figured I'd try this out because it's really interesting, natural, a good price, and has decent reviews. This didn't work too well for me, but maybe I just have a bad body chemistry. It helped to use it in conjunction with another natural deodorant. I could see this working for people who don't sweat often or don't have smelly sweat. It does to a nice job at neutralizing odor for a bit and it's really cool how it works. It's pretty inconvenient though if you need to apply it when you're out and about since you need to wet it down.
Didn't work well
I bought this because I wanted a deodorant that was less loaded with chemicals, and this was advertised as one that could do the job. I like that it has no scent, but it didn't keep me as dry as I wanted, and it was one of those things where I had to apply it all the time just to get some benefit, and that's not really efficient. I would say that if you don't mind applying it all the time, then it's a good buy, but for a deodorant that is low maintenance, this ain't it.

Best I've used
I sweat a lot and I haven't found a deodorant that's as good as this one. This has no scent, it's made from mineral salts and it has nothing artificial added. Best of all, it has stopped my excessive perspiration and I don't have those ugly wet spots on my shirts anymore. I do take it with me at work, though, because I have to put on as much as possible to keep from over perspiring.

I feel like this worked the first time I used it and then after that it hasn't worked at all.
I use Thai crystal on a daily basis. Even after I ride my bike 9.5 miles to work (applying when I get to work) it takes care of my body odor. Then after work when I ride home (sometimes in 100 degree temps) it still holds strong! The current stick I own has lasted at least a year and it probably has another 6 months. I rarely write reviews but this product has no doubt earned it!
I have tried several natural deodorants with very little luck. I would have to reapply every few hours, and even then, would still stink by the end of the day. I was very skeptical of this but decided to try it after reading the good reviews. I have used this deodorant stone for a week now and absolutely LOVE it! I apply once in the morning and am set to go the rest of the day. It doesn't matter how much I sweat there is no BO. I can now toss my old deodorant in the trash!!
"Didn't Work For Me"
I am one of those people who have to have everything clean and and non- artificial so I tried this product. I figured that it was a good price and clean. But then I tried it and it was horrible. When I got it wet the water just dripped down onto my shirt and look like I just ran a marathon. By the end of the day I was mad, sweaty, and had already decided that I wouldn't ever use this product again.
Fantastic deodorant - NOT an antiperspirant
This stuff works pretty well, and lasts FOREVER -- I've had my current stick for about a year and still have plenty left to use. One thing I will say is that if it starts to crumble off on the ends, the minerals are pretty pokey and will not be kind to the delicate skin under your arms.
It'll probably take you a few weeks to get used to this if you're coming off using big brand deodorant/anti-perspirants. I wouldn't say it completely eliminates the smell when I've had a long, sweaty day, but it certainly tones the scent down. This is not an antiperspirant, for the record. My underarms do get damp and, if it's hot enough, sweat will roll down the underside of my arms. While you may get sweaty, you will not have *nearly* the smell after that you would expect.

This stuff is amazing!
I have tried EVERY natural deodorant out there. I've made my own. You name it, I've tried it. Except this. I had never tried this brand of mineral salts. But I swear that it works. I have had it on for 1-1/2 days, with sweating, and I still don't stink. Haha.
Kills Odor, But Stings
This worked for me at killing odor, but it really started to irritate my skin after a while (after a few months of using it). To be fair, I do have sensitive skin.
Most effective and safe deodorant ever!
The crystal deodorant stick is amazing. Simply get it wet and put it anywhere you want odor protection. Even after a long cardio workout or high stress office days, this stuff keeps you ODOR FREE. Seriously! I don't know how it works, I just know that it DOES. I've tried all the others and nothing lasts and works like this stuff does.

This Stuff is Gold!
So I bought this, VERY hesitant at first. My friend uses it and he said he likes it a lot, so, I figured I'd give it a try.
Not only does it pretty much minimize ANY smell, but it cuts down dramatically on the wetness under my arms. This is coming from someone that sweats like crazy and that used antiperspirant deodorant for years. (We're talking the heavy stuff!)
You need to get this stick wet with a little water and rub it all over your underarms. My little "hack" regarding how to use it is to use it after you get out of the shower, when your underarms are still a bit wet from the water. Take the stick dry and just rub it everywhere under your arms. If there's too much water, you'll know, and you can just dab dry with a towel and try again. You don't really want water to be DRIPPING from your underarms when it's applied, but it can't be too dry either.
The fact of the matter is, it's natural to sweat and this product still allows this to happen. The greatest thing about it is there is NO smell, at all. I actually feel comfortable wearing black clothes for the first time in a long time. I am in love with this thing. Because it really works and I'm astonished - really, I am. I'll never have to buy deodorant again as this thing is clearly going to last for YEARS. Thanks Thrive for allowing me to buy it at a discount! :)
Thai Crystal Deodorant is fantastic! It works better than either cancer-causing or aluminum-free deodorant. It also lasts all day, and even after a sweaty workout there's no stink!
