No deodorising effect, left white marks on clothing
I've been making my own deodorants for years and have also tried a number of shop bought deodorants.
My quest has been to find or make a product which doesn't contain nasties or ingredients that are known to clog underarm pores (ie: bicarb, corn starch), and that doesn't require refrigeration.
Moo Goo deodorant is a thumbs down personally: for me it had no deodorising effect at all and left very obvious white marks on my clothing. I'm not a "sweater", so the fact that I could smell the bacteria breakdown within a short time after using the product was fairly telling - it plain wasn't working!
Despite the good ingredients, I won't purchase this again, it was a waste of money for me.
Purchased in March 2020 for A$9.50.
You Might As Well Try It.
I was very skeptical about trying this deodorant as I've always been a heavy sweater and I stink badly. I thought it would be too weak. For several years I've been using clinical strength deodorant which I sweated straight through and still smelt sometimes so I thought it was likely this wouldn't work. I was wrong! I love it! I do sweat more on it but I don't smell at all. Even when I'm not wearing it I've noticed my BO isn't as bad as when I used antiperspirant deodorant.
I put it on at night and by morning it's dry so I can get on with my da...y. If you absolutely HATE having wet armpits like me then you will be a little uncomfortable with this stuff as it does allow your body to sweat naturally however I've found it worth it because I have less smelly BO and feel healthier by not clogging up my pits with aluminium anymore. I didn't have that two week adjustment period they talk about, it worked straight away. It's good to read reviews but truth 8s you won't know whether you like it or how it works for you unless you go out and buy it. Seriously, it's $8.50. Give it a go, it's the only way to know!

The best aluminium-free deodorant I've tried
I've used a wide variety of deodorants, both with and without aluminium, the principal component of antiperspirants which clogs pores to stop sweating and may or may not be a health hazard. The jury is still out as far as I know.
MooGoo Fresh Cream deodorant contains no aluminium so sweating will occur, though in my experience it's less than if nothing had been used for several days. In any case it keeps me odour free.
It has a very light, pleasant fragrance which fades in the minutes after application, important to me as perfumes cause irrit...ation to my sensitive skin. In fact any deodorant I use (this one included) has the potential to irritate if used too long so I skip a day here and there with no noticeable increase in body odour. The only thing I'm not keen on is the small roll-on ball. At about 25mm in diameter I have to be careful not to catch hair in the gap between the ball and the container. I've used other deodorants with a 35mm ball with greater success. Anyhow I'm very happy with the product. Good, natural ingredients instead of nasty chemicals with long names, and it works well to boot.
I only use natural deodorants, not antipersperants, and am always concerned about the use of aluminium. I bought this product on an impulse as I had been very happy with the product I was using, but have historically loved the Moo Goo range of products.
However after using this product for about 3-4 weeks I noticed that my underarms were suddenly very painful and there were large welts under my arms! Of course I thought the worst, and so immediately went to the Dr. The fact that both underarms were affected the same way was a bit of a clue, a...
Great non smelling natural deodorant that works
I suddenly started getting itchiness and infection of my underarms last year. I decided to try a natural product such as moo goo and I haven’t looked back. It reduces sweating and I don’t smell at all. I like how it’s unscented and aluminium free.
Very happy with this deodorant
A natural deodorant that works
I've been using the natural deodorant from "A Bit Hippy" for a few months but it's not widely stocked. One day I couldn't find it anywhere and bought the MooGoo version as a last resort.
I have to say, it's just as good. Looking at the main ingredients, they are quite similar (they both contain magnesium). They are the only natural deodorants I've tried that actually work to prevent odour. Although they don't claim to be anti-perspirant, I do feel that I perspire less when I use them.
Downsides - they are slow to dry and can leave white marks on your clothes. But if you remember to shake them before application, they dry faster, and if you let them dry, they won't leave white marks.
Purchased in March 2019.
Doesn't work. Leaves white marks.
This product was disappointing. It take a long time to dry and once dried, it still leaves white marks on my clothes. Sadly, it doesn't actually work to prevent odour. It was a waste of money.
So thankful to find Moogoo deodorant. Have tried every brand you can think of, supermarket and natural from online and health stores. Most are ineffective or make me itchy. I am sensitive to perfume but don’t want to smell like BO. I tried QV but it seemed useless. Then tried Moogoo. It has no fragrance and it stops BO. it is easy to apply with roll on. (Unlike some other natural deodorants you apply from tin). Only reason not 5 stars is it can leave white marks on clothes but I apply it under shirt now rather than before putting on shirt and problem solved. I’ve just purchased another bottle for my preteen to use and am happy to give them something safe as they begin wearing deodorant
Have used this for over a year now
I found out about Moo Goo while recovering from skin cancer surgery on my mouth/face 12 months ago. I started out looking for moisturisers and discovered their roll on deodorant. I have not used roll on since I was a teenager (Mum brand deodorant I think it was!) and always used spray on deoderants because I tend to smell a bit stale on hot days or at the end of the day so always felt I needed a strong smelling deodorant to keep the armpits under control! While buying Moo Goo moisturiser I decided to give their alumnium free deoderant a go. ...It has a very light scent and thought there was no way it would be effective but honestly, it not only works but it has completely changed my armpits! Yes they still sweat but they do not smell at all. I feel this deoderant has completely changed how my armpits work and the natural ingredients and perhaps also the no aluminium just allows my armpits to be healthy and odour free. 100 percent recommend. 12 months a Moo Goo girl, very happy! Their moisturisers are amazing too. Try anti aging SPF 15 and Soothing MSM and also their bubbly wash. They also have a 40 SPF zinc sunscreen and SPF lip balm.
Best natural deodorant I've tried!
Finally an aluminium-free deodorant that works! I've tried several brands over the last few years and nothing has been effective. This even works on my teenage daughter who struggles to stay smelling fresh at the end of the day even when using an aluminium based product.
Was good - wondering what it done to my sweat glands
I loved this product for about 3 months. Then it started making me sweat ALOT. I mean soaked in sweat. My diet is the same. And I replace it often so it hadn't expired. I emailed moogoo to see if they had had any cases like that or it expired after a couple of months? No reply.
Best deodorant/ antiperspirant I have used
A little worried this might just mask the smell and still leave me to sweat. In fact it is the most effective product I have ever tried. No particular perfume when you put it on but I find it keeps me fresh and dry all day. Major bonus is that it doesn’t stain your clothes.
Roll on deodorant heaven
This is a deodorant, not an antipersperant , you will sweat, but not smell of body door. All roll on under arm products need drying time to be effective and this one is the same. A good shake before application can minimise any white marks. Like all natural deodorants there is a detox period, ie a period of time where your body adjusts and expels all that has gone before. There are recipes on the web that you can wear at night to assist with detoxing, it’s easiest to just start wearing in winter when you sweat less. It doesn’t clog the pores, ...when sweating it doesn’t feel gluggy or slippery like some paste deodorant varieties. If shaken before application, left to dry before dressing, then no marks will be on clothing from the deodorant. It is unisex, with a light pleasant fragrance. It doesn’t irritate the skin (no bi-carb
worked initially for 3 months
I bought this after using natural deodorants for a year and found that it works for the first 3 months I used it. It was fresh smelling and easy to roll on and had to dry for a two minutes or so before you can put your top on without staining it. However, after 3 months it was no longer effective and I found that i started to smell after 2 hours of application.
I love it
I’m pregnant and was looking for something that’s chemical free. Have been living in Singapore and the only one I could find there was an Aesop one that was ridiculously expensive (almost 5 time the cost of the MooGoo) and stops working after about 2 hours. So when I saw MooGoo in the chemist in melbourne for $8.50 I thought I’d give it a try. It’s amazing! I tried it on vigorous walks during summer and on one of those 38 degree days where I was in and out of a hot car and I’d usually stink but this kept me completely odour Free. It doesn’t sting when you apply after shaving and it doesn’t have a fragrance at all. I’m so impressed want to buy it for everyone! Can’t wait to try all the other MooGoo products

I love it!!
It took me about 1.5 weeks to get used to this deodorant and now I can’t live without it!! I ran out recently and used the Q.V. deodorant and felt like I was sweating out of my face?! Very strange. on hot days I need to reapply to stay fresh so definitely buy a couple so that you can have one handy in your bag. You do need to make sure it dries before putting on clothes and especially before singlet tops because it leaves white marks otherwise. I do feel like I sweat less than I used to. The only down side is on really hot days and going to the gym I get sweat patches (not smelly but still unsightly). Other than that I have price of mind that I’m not putting chemicals on my skin and long term health is SO important!!
Nice light smell. Works
Purchased as part of the Essen’tails Value Pack:
As I was keen to try various MooGoo products, the value pack is a great way to introduce yourself to these products. I probably wouldn't have tried the deodorant otherwise.
With traditional deodorants, I would only wear if going out as I try to limit my exposure to the aluminium content.
During the time I purchased the Value Pack, I was having a reaction to something (was hayfever season): Dry, scaly patches on forehead/eyebrow, itchy skin and scalp. Dry patches behind ears as well as itching in armpits.
It is now my go-to deodorant. Lasts a long time and keeps odor at bay. Use straight after shower and let dry whilst you have your morning coffee!
