Best deodorant on the market for me
This deodorant is simply the best deodorant I've ever used. I cannot get it at them moment grrr. Hopefully be available in Perth WA shortly.
No aluminium compounds or chemical antiperspirants which is a bonus.
Purchased in January 2019 for A$13.00.
What has happened? This product used to be amazing.
I used this product for about ten years, loved it, used it faithfully. Even on hot days I didn't need a top up. Then recently I went to buy another and found it had a new label and new smell. Now it doesn't work, lasting at best two hours. Upon querying at my local health food shop if I could possibly get the old packaging, I was told no, and that two staff who had also used it faithfully, found it doesn't work anymore for them either. Not happy.
I reacted to this too and hopeless if you sweat a lot
To be fair to Miessence, they don't advertise this product as low-allergy and just because something is natural doesn't mean it won't cause allergies. Unfortunately the products I don't react are generally the ones with chemicals in it - like Cetaphil. this is quite highly fragranced and it gave me a sore rash. I really wish I could use a natural deodorant, but I sweat big and this is just hopeless. Of course it isn't an antiperspirant so it doesn't claim to stop you sweating, but I found it didn't control the smell either. Moogoo is better ...as it contains cornstarch to absorb some of the sweat (but it does leave white marks). Others seem to like this deodorant but unfortunately it doesn't work for me, Caused skin reaction, doesn't work on me as a deodorant
Under Arm Rash
At first, I love this deodorant, especially the smell (it smells just like the Aveda store). However, after a few months of use I had a horrible peeling rash under my arms. I stopped using this deodorant immediately and the rash went away, but it still took weeks to heal all the way. My boyfriend also let me know that while using this I had horrible BO, but he didn't want to tell me at the time because I was so excited to find an "effective" natural deodorant. Good to know BO is not a deal breaker for him.
Allergic to this deodorant :(
I thought I had found a chemical free deodorant that actually works, but... after using it for a couple of days my underarms started to itch, it never occurred to me that it could be my new deodorant - how could it be? It's all natural. Anyway after 5 days the itching was becoming annoying and when I looked under my arms it looked like I had a 'red traffic light' under each arm - ouch! What a shame, I loved the smell but now my Tahitian Breeze is in the bin.
Loved the smell, the fragrance lasted well
Wet and sticky, caused a nasty rash
Allergic to this deodorant
After trying this deodorant a few times i have found i am allergic to it, causing an itchy red rash on the armpit. if you find that you are allergic to highly fragranced products this might not be for you as is the case for me.
It was very wet putting it on but doesnt take long to dry.
Finally one that works!
Really happy with this deodorant. I have been searching for awhile to find a deodorant without aluminium that actually works, and this is it. Its a bit wet when you roll it on but I am happy to put up with that, you just need to allow a bit of extra time for it to dry. I am so happy to be using this product and knowing that I am not putting any harmful chemicals into my body. I live in Queensland so it has been put to the test. I only wish I had found this sooner. I have recommended it to all my friends. I buy it online and I have also seen it in some health food shops.
It actually works
A bit wet when you first put it on.
At last! A truly organic deodorant. Lovely scent. I was surprised that it remains wet for a while, but after thinking about it, reasoned that that's because it is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant, & therefore doesn't contain aluminum. Which is the whole point of being organic. I thought that it would probably need refreshing during the day, but surprisingly it lasts all day. Am very impressed with MiEssence products, their integrity, & their credentials. They are certified organic & all ingredients are displayed with pictures & full explanati...ons. It's difficult to find truly organic products, some companies call their products 'natural' but if you research the ingredients, you'll find they've slipped in a few suspect chemicals. It lives up to its claims & the price is reasonable considering the high quality of the ingredients.
Great aluminium-free deodorant
Tried a few deodorants in my time, I found this one online. The Tahitian Breeze deodorant smells beautiful, and lasts during the day! It even does not make my clothing smell at the underarm, which means I can wear cardigans twice! (Not the case even with my anti-perspirant!)
I think it is only available online, but looking for an organic, no animal testing, aluminium-free deodorant is hard work! And so I do not mind buying it as it works!
Reliable, aluminium-free, no animal testing
Slight smell after exercising
