On the first application, the deodorant went on with ease without leaving any sticky, white residue. I felt clean and fresh for the majority of the day but a second application was required around mid-day. Remember, it takes a few weeks for your body to adjust to a new product. The burning sensation that I have experienced in the past from other brands was nonexistent, leaving my skin without any irritation. I was very pleased with the smell because it wasn’t overpowering. Even if this is not antiperspirant, my underarms remained dry for the majority of the day. This is the winter season though folks and I don’t know the final results following a hot sunny day at the beach. Stay tuned for a summer version.
