The Guv’ner is our strongest deodorant yet. An odor-busting blend of sage, lavender and patchouli are mixed into a super absorbent charcoal and lycopodium base. Odor is simply no match for this powerhouse of effective ingredients. Dust a little onto your hands, or apply directly onto clean, dry 'pits to keep them fresh. And don’t sweat over white marks, charcoal powder ensures dark clothes stay that way.

I would not buy this product again

Roseville, MN | 9 days ago

This product works great as a deodorant unfortunately it darkens you're skin when you apply it which doesn't look good on a blonde haired, fair skinned woman. I'll save it for winter when I wear long sleeve tops,

Worked in every way but my sensitive skin didn't like it :(

So with a couple of weeks of using this I can say it works very well. It does stain your pits darker but I found that to be a minor problem. For myself I'll have to try something different since I've developed a rash from it. Oh well. I have extremely sensitive skin. Otherwise I would definitely recommend. I'm going to try another type.

I just started using it and I'm impressed.

St, Paul, MN | 29 days ago

I typically wear a lot of black, including bras. After reading other reviews, I ended up buying both types (this one and the greench.) I switched to natural deodorants about a year ago and have had mixed results. I get rashes with baking soda based deodorants. This one keeps me relatively dry and totally stink free. I don't need to reapply and at the end of the day, there is no odor. It does make your pits greyish black and you need to wash your hands after applying it. I wouldn't recommend wearing a tank top. It works really well and smells wonderful!

Smells great, looks kinda weird

Philadelphia, PA | 29 days ago

I've been using natural deodorants for awhile so my pits had no problem adjusting to this formula. The smell is so earthy and I like it a lot! The only thing I don't like about this is the color is leaves on my skin. There is charcoal in the formula so I guess I shouldn't be surprised but it does stain quite a bit. I wear mostly black so it's not too much of a problem but I am definitely scared of wearing white or color shirts with this deo.

Long time user

Vancouver | 1 month ago

It's amazing how well this stuff works... I can go through an entire day of running errands in 40° heat and literally will still be dry when I get home. Plus even if I do sweat occasionally the powder really masks any smell into a more neutral one. I'd give it a try if you haven't before, I've only ever needed powder about half the size of an M&M to take me through the whole day for both pits!

Best deodorant ever

WA | 3 months ago

Verified Reviewer

So I sweat, A LOT. I've tried every kind of deodorant ever, especially natural ones, and I pretty much always end up smelling at least a little funky halfway through the day. Not to mention the obnoxious white stains on all of my nice clothes. Then I gave this a shot on a whim and I will say I love it. It helps some with dampness, though I still end up with damp underarms partway through the day. However, I'm not smelling. At all. Even the next day if o forgot to put it on I notice I'm still not smelling. The only exception was after eating heavy curry spices one day. Also, it doesn't leave white stains on dark clothes. That being said, this is not a good deodorant to wear with any white, delicate articles of clothing (I have The Greenwich for my little white pieces of clothing, though I don't like the smell of that one as much). Seriously love this deodorant!

MISLEADING TO PUBLIC!!!

California | 4 months ago

Well i purched this deodorant and specially read how to use right before; and OMG was i wrong in buying this product; what a waste of my money!!! Well first off i put it under my arms and wore a light colored top, and it not only stained my shirt but my armpits was stained adter removing the product. It looked like i hadnt shaved for days; what?? Also it made me sweat with a body odor which im not a swaater by any means. Stained my pits, stained my clothes as well as made me sweat, so NO i dont recommend this product at all!!!! Just a little heads up before purchasing.

The best I ever had

Virginia | 4 months ago

I started to use this a few weeks ago. I got a mini powder brush to help apply it. It has helped me with not sweating so much and also helped with BO control. There are days that I don't use it (as in I forgot one morning) and even if I sweat I don't stink to high heavens

The only deodorant I've found that works for me

Hartford, CT | 5 months ago

I can't get enough of this stuff. I use a heavy handed application every day for a few years now. I've been so happy to find deodorant that actually WORKS. It took many, many years. I can't use conventional deodorant due to an aluminum sensitivity, and really struggled with natural products until I found this one. I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! Never change a thing about it, Lush

Love it

CT | 10 months ago

I do go back and forth between this and the Greench depending on what color clothes I am wearing. yes this does leave black residue under your arms, but i dont really care. I was able to switch from regular deodorant to this and it works great! No BO or very minimal if its really hot and i've been active. The only thing is I wish it came in a more easily dispensable container. When I first started using this I was wasting so much of it. I wish it had a sprinkle top.
