I’ve been using this deodorant in the middle of summer in very hot and humid weather. I’ve been wearing it to work, going to yoga class, to the beach, walking around the park and by the end of the day I don’t have any smelly armpits!
The creme works by killing the bacteria under your arm pit, you still sweat naturally, but you don’t get any sweaty smells.
This is actually a paste and all you do is take a tiny bit on your fingers and rub it underneath your arms. This type of deodorant has worked really well for me, I hadn’t tried a paste before, wasn’t sure what to expect, but I think it's great.
The consistency of the paste changes a little bit, depending on the temperature, if it’s really hot weather the paste won’t be as thick, but it doesn’t matter, it works just as effectively. You can always place it in the fridge to make it firm again.
Babs deodorant comes in two different scents, tea tree and lavender. I tried the tea tree oil and it has a nice fresh, clean scent.
We all know about the dangers of aluminium and parabens in chemical based deodorants, particularly with links to breast cancer, that’s why I’ve avoided using those products for years. I had been using a crystal stick, but find this paste much more effective. I can safely wear this to work. As I deal with many people during the day, I don’t have to worry about sweating when I’m under pressure.
I also find this creme very soothing to my skin, I haven't experienced any stinging after shaving. Another problem I’ve had with some deodorants is they would stain my clothes, but not this one.
I like the glass jar, I always prefer glass to plastic products, it's environmentally safe and better for our health.
I'm really happy with this deodorant, I think this will work well, even for men in physical labour jobs. For me it works even better than mainstream deodorants, without the nasty chemicals.
