I really wanted to like this product, as I do love the Lucy Bee skin care including soaps and face range, and I have for years been searching for a deodorant that is kind to my skin, ethical and doesn't cause me to have rashes due to my sensitive skin. However I just can't get on with this deodorant and I have gone through 2 jars since February to make sure my body is used to it
(I read it can take a while so wanted to give it fair chance). It does smell so good, and I don't have any problems with the application, and the consistency is nice as it does just melt. I work 12 hours as a veterinary nurse and I do work up a sweat, I feel that with Lucy bee I sweat more, and smell bad, which I've never had a problem with before - and I am now very aware and conscious of this. I am pretty sure it's just me it doesn't work for, and I will continue to use her skin care range and support Lucy Bee. I've given a 3 star based on how I found it, but I would definitely recommend anyone trying it. My armpits feel nicer using it, and it has not caused rashes or uncomfortable dryness as experienced with other deodorants.
Hi Sarah, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry this product is not for you, but hope you continue to enjoy other Lucy Bee products in the future. Many thanks for your comments, Rian
I have tried a few products like this and the texture and quality is never quite right however this one I love! Like any natural product I would say it takes a week or so for the body to get used to it but so far for me it works! It also smells great and doesn’t leave white marks. I Would highly recommend anyone wanting to move towards natural products to give this a try!
Hi Tara, we are so pleased that you enjoy using the Lucy Bee natural deodorant. Thank you for your review, and for recommending! Rian
I bought this because I’m looking for a natural deodorant and off the back of someone that complained about it having never tried it. You can’t review a product you haven’t tried and give it a bad rating, in my humble opinion.
I’m impressed! I’m a fitness professional so my deodorant has to stand up to the test or lots of movement and it needs to last, which this has. I absolutely love the smell of it (which was a critic of the review I read), it’s subtle refreshing and I love the gentle scent you get when moving about. It’s a 10/10 from me!
No skin irritation on my sensitive skin either!
Just one thing, I’d love a little wooden spatula to be included for ease of getting the product out (I did manage to find something to use at home).
I wasn’t sure about this product, would it work? I decided I would give it ago and ordered one. I was so impressed, I use it everyday even doing exercise, gardening etc and it works really well. Also it doesn’t irritate my skin, I love it 🥰 and I’ve ordered it again. Thank you Lucy Bee.
Thank you Karen, we are so pleased to hear how much you enjoy using the Lucy Bee natural deodorant. It is fantastic to hear you are feeling fresh after exercising and gardening. I love the soft texture and the light fragrance. Thank you for sharing your feedback, and for your support. Rian
The texture, smell and performance of this deodorant is great. Best ethical, natural deodorant I've used. Wish I'd bought the bamboo spatula though.
Love the ethos of this company too. Another product that I will be getting again.
Thank you for sharing your 5* feedback, Sarah. We are so happy that you enjoy using our natural deodorant, and the cream-to-powder texture. We produce effective products whilst always being as ethical and environmentally-friendly as we possibly can. Thank you for your support, Rian
Was really pleasantly surprised with this deodorant, granted it's the first natural one I've used but I can't rate it highly enough. I've been using for a couple of months now, it look my body a few days to get used to it but really pleased with the results. Goes on really easily and has a nice fruity scent, no stinging when you apply after shaving. Works really well for me and even passes the test after a hardcore workout. Well and truly converted, just another fab LucyBee product that I am now addicted to! :)
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Laura. It is wonderful to hear how much you are enjoying the Natural Deodorant, and that you are still fresh after a workout! I agree, the cream to powder texture melts into the skin, and the citrus scent is so refreshing. Thank you for your review, Rian
I love the brand's ethical approach and really wanted to fall in love with this deodorant, but it just doesn't quite do the job for me unfortunately. I like the smell when I apply it, and even though it leaves white marks on my clothes it's not the oily kind I've had with other natural deodorants in the past and it washes off fine. But as soon as I sweat a little bit I just smell at the end of the day (and I don't naturally smell very much in the first place), no matter how much product I apply, which also means I'm using it pretty quickly because of putting more on to try and make it more effective. It's a shame, I wish I could have left a more enthusiastic review!
Thank you for your feedback, Johanna. I'm very sorry to hear that our natural deodorant is not for you. Our deodorant contains micro silver which is a long term antibacterial and antimicrobial agent which neutralises bacteria, meaning that underarm odour can’t develop. We also use sodium bicarbonate which helps to protect and fight against odour too. Something to consider is that just like when you start a new skincare routine, by changing your routine and what you are using on your armpits can mean that your body needs to adapt to the new ingredients in your deodorant. There’s no set time limit for this transition period, and you may experience sweating more than you are used to. We always recommend applying the Deodorant to armpits that are clean and completely dry. Generally a large pea sized amount is about right, a thin layer. I hope you give the deodorant another try, but if it is still not for you I hope you enjoy other Lucy Bee products in the future. Thank you for your feedback, Rian
Took me a day to get used to it. I do like it. Nice subtle smell, did last longer than I had expected. I like it and would use it again. Pleased that I have chosen a chemical free alternative. It also doesnt leave white marks which all other deodorant do. Very happy to keep using this product.
Thank you Salma, I am so pleased that you enjoy wearing the Lucy Bee Natural Deodorant. The cream-to-powder balm melts into the skin, with no sticky feeling. The fresh scent is from citrus essential oils, and as you say it does not leave white marks. Our deodorant is Vegan, Cruelty Free and all packaging is fully recyclable: Thank you for sharing your feedback, Rian
In an effort to stop using spray deodorants I’d tried a few but never really found anything that worked. Then along came Lucy Bee, a deodorant that smells great, is kind to my skin, the environment & animals. All boxes ticked.
There was a small transition period from my old deodorant but it didn’t last long & it wasn’t that bad.
If you want to move to a kinder deodorant I highly recommend switching to this one. Oh and another bonus - none of those annoying white marks on your black tops.
Another brilliant product from Lucy Bee.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful feedback! It is fantastic to hear how much you are not only enjoying our natural deodorant, but the Lucy Bee core values of being ethical and environmentally friendly too! I agree, it is so great knowing that you are being kind to your skin with fantastic products, as well as being kind to the environment. Thank you for your review, Rian
I quite like applying deodorant as a balm as opposed to a roll-on stick or spray, it's quite soothing. It also smells lovely and keeps me smelling nice for the day. It doesn't stop me stinking after a workout or if I've missed a shower, unfortunately, but I don't think any product short of a miracle could. Anyway, it's a lovely product and having to maintain healthy hygiene habits is small sacrifice to make when you think about how much better this product is for the environment compared to what I was using before.
I will be purchasing again when I run out and I recommend anyone to give it a go!
Hi Megan, thank you very much for your feedback. It is great to hear that you are enjoying our Natural Deodorant, and it's fresh citrus scent. The deodorant works best on freshly washed armpits, as there is no residual sweat and bacteria on the skin. If you wish as well, before a workout you can apply a bit more of the deodorant, the micro silver works to neutralise the bacteria on the skin that causes sweat to smell, and the sodium bicarbonate fights and prevents odour. Thank you for your review, Rian
