I was a little bit sceptical ordering this, but was curious to try something more natural than the roll on I have been using. I’ve been using it daily for two weeks now and are very happy with it so far. It’s weird applying something we are used to using in a different format, but has quickly become second nature.
The paste has a pleasant smell, not overpowering, and I think could be used by men as well as women - very gender neutral scent. It’s quite a firm paste, I use the back of my fingernail to scrape a little up, the my fingertips to apply it to my arm pit. The instructions suggest “half a pea size” is all you need, don’t be tempted to put more on, you’re only covering a small area, half a pea size is sufficent - any more and you’ll just waste it and go through it too quickly.
I’m fairly active, I go to the gym and quite long walks several times a week, and so far, although I still sweat, and there is still an odour, it’s not near as offensive as usual after exercising! I hope it’s the same in the hot summer weather! I’ve used it directly after shaving my armpits, but didn’t have any burning or other reaction - but I see from other reviews, others have, so do be careful.
