Finding an Aluminum-Free Deodorant

Eight or nine months ago, I set out to find an aluminum-free deodorant. I tried Honestly pHresh, Primal Pit Paste, and Schmidt’s. I applied the deodorant at least twice, if not three times, a day – at night before bed/after shower, in the morning, and then usually one more time in the afternoon.













Here’s my opinion…

  • Primal Pit Paste:
    • My least favorite.
    • People rave about this one, but, man, it was a no-go for me. It did NOT keep me smelling fresh at all! I will not buy this again. And, in fact, I didn’t even finish half the stick.
    • This was $12.95 on Amazon when I purchased it. I’m not sure how long it would have lasted. I only used it for a couple of months.
  • Honestly pHresh
    • At first I thought I really liked this one, but then there were a few times I felt like I got a little stinky…not good!
    • This was $7.99 on Amazon at the time I purchased it, and it lasted about six months.
    • I probably wouldn’t buy this again either.
  • Schmidt’s:
    • So far, it works the best to keep me smelling fresh!
    • I still sweat with this deodorant (aluminum-free deodorants are not antiperspirants), but it does seem to help with reducing sweat a least a little. I’m not sure I noticed that with the other two.
    • This was $4.99 at Target – about half the price of the others! I’ve only been using it for about a month, so I’m not sure how long it will last.
    • I’m loving the bergamot and lime scent, too :).

What aluminum-free deodorants have you had good luck with?
