I really wanted this to be as amazing as all the reviews say it is, but I'm not convinced. I honestly didn't notice much of a difference between using this stone and not wearing anything at all. I'm not a particularly smelly person, and I don't typically sweat much when not active. But if I don't use deodorant, there's definitely a subtle, natural sweat smell in my pits. Used this stone as directed for 6 days consecutively and every single day I felt sticky and stinky. My shirt underarms were sweaty and gross after one day of wear in my very sedentary office-work weekdays. With an all-natural stick deodorant, I usually get 2-3 days of wear out of my clothes. With this stone I am doing more laundry (not eco!) and feeling unclean (not cool!). I even tried adding a couple drops of tea tree oil to the water I use to wet the stone, to no avail. It's a beautiful stone but I don't feel it works for me.
I was skeptical about replacing my standard deodorant with this, but it really works! I'm thrilled!
my underarms have always been extremely sensitive to the point where even natural deodorants constantly broke me out in a rash AND made them dark! I’ve found one that worked a little but it did NOTHING for odor - if anything I think it made it worse! But on the first use with this, NO SMELL ALL DAY! Like wow - a week into using it and no rash either. Never thought a rock would be the answer to my sensitive underarms
This stone is like magic to me! I am an extremely active individual and the deodorant stone held up against my sweaty post run-pits. I spray my stone with water infused with essential oils to give my underarms a nice fragrance. I also sewed a little pouch out of repurposed fabric to keep my stone and spray bottle in while traveling. I highly recommend switching to this zero waste alternative!! Thank you eco-collective for introducing me to such a fabulous product!
I have been on the lookout for a packaging-free deodorant for a while and this is perfect! I've been using a variety of natural (homemade and store-bought) deodorants for the past six years. There is the detox period but I don't mind it. Thanks for offering this option!
It's really nice to find soaps that don't have palm oil and options for ones without essential oils. I have very sensitive skin and am so glad this soap works well and doesn't make me itch. I bought it in hopes that it would help moisturize my hair and body when I have issues with dryness. It has been working perfectly for that issue and is a generous size. I suspect it'll last a long time since it's not super soft and drains well. It'd be great to have other unscented flavours as well, like maybe the lavender one without the essential oil, for example, or other ones where flower petals are used instead of essential oils. It also could be helpful to include the size in the description. I was unsure of how big/small exactly it would be.
This soap is great! Love that it's made locally too. It's not overly drying and doesn't leave a weird feeling on your skin afterwards like other soaps do. They're also so pretty and instagram-worthy if you're into that thing. I will continue to buy these! Worth the price for sure!
The rose/ylang ylang smells like heaven and it will make you want to shower even when you don't need to. The lemon poppy smells and lathers great, but it's a strong exfoliant. I have dry skin so I only use it once a week.
Second time ordering soap from Eco Collective and I’m so impressed. This soap smells amazing while not giving me a headache. It lasts forever! My partner and I both use it and it lasted us three months. 10/10. I now have one for the shower and the sink.
I love these soaps-- I got one for each of our bathroom sinks and they're both really nice. I especially love the smell of the blue clay and patchouli. They're very smooth and suds up very nicely. I will be repurchasing when I run out of soap again.
I always appreciate that Eco Collective stocks local eco-concious brands that I likely wouldn't have heard of otherwise. Thank you for introducing me to Flourish Botanicals!
It’s hard for me to find bars of body soap that don’t leave a residue after I rinse off. This soap smells so good and I love how it exfoliates my skin. Definitely recommend!
Easy, plastic-free bulk hand soap for refilling bottles. Lathers well, and the bergamot scent is lovely!
I absolutely love the ability to fill up my handsoap dispensers right at Eco Collective in non-Covid19 times . . . but just as easy was purchasing this same soap in a returnable glass jar (deposit to be refunded) and filling up dispensers at all the sinks around my house. Wonderful! And great quality soap as well!
I love how this sunscreen smells, it's a subtle botanical smell. I use this for the rest of my body, while I use a tinted version for my face.
My only problem is that the label appears to be made of plastic. I tried to look for more information from the Raw Elements website, but could not find anything about the label.
