The aerosol SPRAY version is excellent
The aerosol spray version of this deodorant works really well for me. I hate the smell of deodorants and perfumes and I'm also terrified of aluminium-poisoning, so this product is quite honestly a miracle. I'm fortunate to not have any allergic reaction to this at all, and it's so effective for the type of body odour-causing bacteria I have that even if I forget to spray it once or twice, my armpits remain completely odour-free.
Please note that in my experience, the rub-on version of this is completely useless. My theory is that the spray is ...significantly more concentrated than what is currently possible with the design of the rub-on version's application. I switched to using that one for a while and very quickly started smelling again, even after rubbing it on for up to a minute on each armpit (and shaking to re-lubricate the roller). The other reviewers here that report poor results with this product may also have been using the rub-on version - if so, give the spray a try.
I think this product is supposed to the odour at bay but after 2 weeks of using it, I am afraid it didn't help me with that. I don't have that very overpowering odour I guess it's the natural odour but still, it is not helping with that.
Purchased in May 2020.
I have been using this deodorant for over 10 years, and its hands down the best fragrance and alumnium free product available. I initially had to switch to alumnium free deodorant after having a allergic reaction to common deodorants. I live in FNQ which is incredibly hot and humid and i oy apply once in the morning. Love it!
I had a bad allergic reaction to this product
I bought QV deodorant because I thought it was the safer alternative to other deodorants, unfortunately l had a bad reaction as soon as l sprayed it on, it really stung and left me with a rash for a week.
In full honesty, l had not shaved under my arms for a couple of weeks being winter so it wasn’t because of the fact that l had just shaved.
I hate posting negative reviews but l felt that the company should be aware of side affects
Didn't Work For Me
I tried this product for 2 weeks and my BO, which is never really bad, was gag worthy. I was washing and using it twice a day because I was rank!. I started thinking I had some medical problem then read some of these reviews. I went back to my Nivea deodorant for sensitive skin and everything is back to normal. QV may have something in it that doesn't agree with me, but now I am stuck with three bottles of the stuff. Might dole it out to family and see if they have better luck with it.
The best aluminium free deodorant I have ever used
I perspire quite heavily and have had no success with aluminium free deodorants over the years in eliminating odour. This deodorant works perfectly for me, so far, and is therefore worth the extra cost to me. Highly recommend trying it if you want to eliminate aluminium.
Worst deodorant ever
I love other QV products (the gentle wash and bath oils are great) but this product lets their brand name down. I was thrilled to see QV had an aluminium free deodorant so I was bitterly disappointed when it made my body odour (which is not normally that noticeable) more prominent than when I wear NO deodorant. I tried it for over a week with the same woeful result every day. It is a waste of money and should not even be able to be marketed as a deodorant. Never will I purchase this product again or try any other product in the QV deodorant range. So disappointed!
I've been looking for an aluminium-free deodorant for some time and was happy to find this product. Bought it nearly a year ago, was very disappointed after trying it 2 or 3 days in a row. Just came across it in my cabinet and thought I'd give it another go before I chucked it. It's in the bin. I perspire very little so use deodorant more as a safeguard-this stuff actually creates underarm moistness if that's possible! Worse than using nothing. Totally ineffectual. Giant rip-off. Actually makes me angry that it's on the market.
I really wanted this deodorant to work for me. I purchased the fragrance and aluminum free roll on and spray.
Love the fact it doesn't get up your nose as I can't tolerate many fragranced products and I know not to use deodorants after shaving. So I didn't use this until the following day, and it burnt my armpits like blazers!!! I washed it off immediately. There was no redness, just irritation like stinging nettles. Pity as unless I don't shave for a while.....ewww, it really does perform well as a deodorant.
Shame, as I like QV products........
Does not work!
I was initially excited to try an aluminium-free deodorant but was left bitterly disappointed with this one. I do not sweat excessively but found that during the day under non-strenuous activities, that I was smelling of BO!!! I was mortified and embarrassed. I tried it again the following day with the same results. It had been sitting on my shelf for months when I decided to give it one more try, but still had the same smelly problem.
I would never use this or recommend it to anyone. I'm baffled at the previous reviews this has received.
It actually works!
I have not found an aluminium free deodorant that actually works until now. Decided to try this one after trying most of the brands out there and was pleasantly surprised to find this brand actually does work, and I have found it works even better than some aluminium deodorants I have tried.
As other reviewer stated its hard to find a neutral aluminum free deodorant that actually works. Both my husband and I use this product everyday. On very hot days I need to reapply as doesnt stop you sweating as such (because it doesnt block the pores! but does stop smells). As a bonus it doesn't stain his work shirts, as the Al. deodorants do. Shake before applying for best results.
Alimunium free, doesnt mark my husbands shirts, fragrance free,
expensive, harder to find
