I started using this product about 3 months now and still have a lot left. I've tried a handful of different natural deodorants without any success. I often find they've made me smell worse than not using any deodorant at all. I've had a similar experience to a lot of reviewers. It was an adjustment of routine for me and worked not too bad. I would use the salt stick after the shower because when you run it under water and it drips down your sides which wasn't a deal breaker for me. I only found that meant I wasn't keen on reapplying or using at all except after a shower. I found the packaging messy, the salt would crust on the base and leave marks anywhere you left it or in your bag when you're traveling. However, I loved that it didn't stain clothing. Over time, the salt stick got really sharp from running under water and falls out of the container so I'm careful it doesn't slide out and shatter as some reviewers have experienced. I also found during workouts I still smelt as if I hadn't applied anything at all. I used the exotic deodorant spray as well right before workouts or throughout the day but still didn't want to lift my arms at the gym! Travelling with it I find really messy because it's wet and gets everywhere. Overall, I really tried to love it but I'm still looking to try other alternatives and find an effective deodorant for working out. I love Saje products but sadly won't repurchase this one.
