I didn’t want to write a review till I had used it for a bit. It’s been several months now and I can say it works and I like it! I have VERY dry and sensitive skin in the area where my under arm is and a long my upper rib area. This hasn’t irritated it or anything! I enjoy it! Recommend(:
This works amazingly well. After using natural deodorant for about two years I sometimes feel like I need to switch products to maintain efficacy. This worked great right from the first use. Glad I found it to add to my arsenal.
It also looks really pretty in my bathroom.
Like a lot of the reviews on here, I started off as a very skeptical person- how could rubbing a rock under my arms do a thing? After getting off to a misunderstood start where I didn't realize you were supposed to WET the stone slightly before applying it, I have been shocked at how well it works. My partner is now tired of me running up to her and forcing her to smell my armpits while grinning and saying "Still working!" There has been no change (ie no rash, etc) other than an astounding lack of smell. I don't know that it works for EVERY body, but it works for my body.
- Definitely wet this a little to make it work, otherwise it's both less comfortable to apply and ineffective.
- If I put it on when my armpits are not newly cleaned, the scent level that was there before still lingers. So, unless I'm fresh out of the shower, I know I can expect to be a little smelly.
- If you are the kind of person whose body needs to adjust to a new product AND you're staying at home because of COVID-19... This is your chance to try it out with no societal judgement!
I have to admit . . . I was a bit skeptical on this product. But I didn't have good experience with the more traditional deodorant that came in a cardboard push-up tube - that left me with itchy armpits from time to time. This stone works!!! And no itch!!! Who'd a thunk ;-)
I don't know where to begin with beside just YES! YES this product is amazing, YES I would recommend it! I suffer from coconut allergies, and it is very difficult to find products without it. I've tried about 4 or 5 natural deodorants and none of them actually worked with covering odor besides Tom's but the problem was the coconut additive. So the search began. I heard about the alum stone and was intrigued by the idea and the fact that it has nothing in it, besides what the actual stone is! I figured at this point anything is worth trying. I'm on day 11 of using it and can I just say, HOLY SH*T! I wish I knew about this sooner, like 10 years ago sooner haha. I'm a rather sweaty person and although I still have a little moisture it does not sit there like it would with other deodorants and with lots of sweat comes odor. NOPE. I can honestly say that I think other deodorants that have so many ingredients (even if natural) cause more sweat to build up and get stuck and cause odor. I was just using Meow Meow Tweet deodorant and it made me smell worse than I did before even putting it on. This stone is wizardly and I can't get enough.
I was so excited to pick up this razor from Eco Collective - it's great that they're still offering pick up during COVID. It was a quick & safe handoff & I took my razor home. I was very nervous my first time shaving & went very slowly but it turned out amazing! Didn't cut myself once & my legs were more smooth than I've ever been able to get them with a Venus razor. Since then I've been slowly getting more confident in my shaving abilities, have cut myself twice but it hasn't deterred me. The key, I think, is showering in hot water to relax your hair follicles, using lots of soap or shaving cream & not adding any weight to the razor. I take the pieces apart to let them dry after every use, and so far, no rust. I'm so happy I was able to buy from a local business and continue eliminating plastic from my life.
I was nervous about trying this, but I made it through my first shave without nicking myself and my legs feel SO SMOOTH! Love!
I had been very nervous to try the safety razor. I finally used all the razors I had on hand and decided it was time. It is a bit of an investment, at first. However, it is a high quality that should last you a life time and the blade replacements are so cheap! Before my first use, I watched a couple of YouTube videos on how to use properly and safely. I have found that short strokes with a delicate pressure works perfectly. I did nick my legs during the first use, but like I said there is a learning curve. My advice would be to use our when you have plenty of time to do it carefully. I take my razor apart are each use and rinse thoroughly and store in a dry place. This has proven to keep the razor and blade in top shape for long lasting use. Highly recommend!
It’s good for finer hair, but does not do a thorough job on thick hair. I’ve contacted the company about a return but have never heard back. Pretty disappointed in quality of product and service.
Fresh out of the package with a brand new blade, I tried shaving in the shower and the razor missed a lot of hair and took multiple times to get make the slightest difference, but still no clean shave. I tried shaving dry with no water, no shaving soap, just legs lightly lotioned, and it worked. Strange? Still playing around with it to make it work because this is the next step in my zero waste journey! Maybe I need some tips or tricks. As of right now, it works best out of the shower, and not the first blade in the package, but the second.
This shaving "soap" bar is excellent! It foams up enough to feel a bit like shaving cream, and it leaves my skin softer than any shaving cream out of a can ever did! Plus container left behind!
This conditioner works really well! I had tried conditioner bars and I just wasn't a fan. This stuff comes out to a great consistency and does a good job. I added my own mix of essential oils to the unscented packet for my own scent. When my current batch is out I will buy the bulk packet to keep using this product with minimal waste!
The hand sanitizer feels SO nice -- not drying at all on my hands, smells good, and dries quickly! When my housemates and I go out grocery shopping, they always get excited to use my hand sanitizer when we get back in the car. The only (small) complaint I have is about the pump for the 1 oz amber pump bottle option -- it gets stuck easily and doesn't disperse super nicely, so it takes a little longer to get enough product onto my hands. It's not bad, just a slight inconvenience. But overall, it wouldn't stop me from recommending the product & giving 5 stars!
The little pump bottles are really cute, easy to stash in a purse and disperse the perfect amount of hand sanitizer each time. I find I'm not using an excessive amount which means I don't have to replace it as often.
This dries fast so youre not left with sticky hands, really good product!
My hands so clean afterwards, no film like with other hand sanitizers. And it can be refilled!
Good for any old day honestly. I have a big bum so I wear thongs often because they are more comfortable for me (not lingerie thongs tho, come on, those are horrendous).
I am so glad I bought this! This was a great investment. I am thrilled at the prospect of never buying a plastic razor again! The razor itself is beautifully made, weighty, and very reasonably priced. The replacement razors are all sharp and the tin arrived in perfect shape. I LOVE that the included shave bar is from Dulse and Rugosa...the scent! Highly recommend the shave kit to anyone and everyone! ✌️
