A "sensitive skin" deodorant that actually works on odor -- and your skin!
With more than a decade of deodorant formulating and expertise under our belt, we know that when it comes to underarm rashes, in most cases it's not about the absence or presence of any one particular ingredient -- it's about how the overall formula acts on your skin. We've heard so many stories about how people react even to other brands' "sensitive skin" formulas. That's because other companies will just take out the baking soda and call it a "sensitive" version. We know it's not that simple.
Most underarm rashes are caused by moisture and friction. Whether it's friction from the actual deodorant you're using (hello scratchy sticks) or skin-to-skin friction (itchy!), skin becomes irritated, red/dark and raw. That irritation can then progress to topical infections (bacterial or fungal) that can be even harder to control. Keeping underarm skin dry and friction free is the key to keeping it happy!
When we formulated Pit Buddy, we added a nice dose of skin-soothing zinc oxide and a good amount of wetness-absorbing organic arrowroot powder. Zinc oxide does a great job of creating a protective barrier on skin and arrowroot powder cuts down on friction and moisture.
If you're a heavier sweater or live in a humid climate, we recommend reapplying the cream, a powder, or corresponding Pit Putty Stick on top of it throughout the day to keep that wetness down.
Geranium & Lime is a fresh natural floral + citrus blend. Geranium is kind of like rose's earthier cousin. Combined with juicy-sweet lime, it's the perfect blend for smelling fresh but not perfumey.

I've been using this for about 2 weeks and love it. The product goes on easily, smells great and works.
I've been using this for a month. It smells great and works fine most of the time, but sometimes if I am wearing a less absorbent material or doing more activity than usual, the odor protection just isn't enough for my particular chemistry. I may try a different scent and see if that works better for me.
I also don't mind the cream - it's kind of fun to put on, lol.
It is my pleasure to review the Geranium Lime SENSITIVE Skin Organic Deodorant. First of all, the deodorants by Bubble & Bee are THE BEST natural deodorants I've ever used. And believe me, I have tried loads of them. Always ended up reapplying several times a day and they did nothing for the odor! It turns out that I have a baking soda skin sensitivity which causes red welts in my armpits. I tried the B&B sensitive version and it worked beautifully! I am dry and odor-free and don't have to worry about any harmful chemicals and aluminum being absorbed into my body. Also, I do not mind at all applying a cream instead of a spray or roll-on! Try it; it's a great product! I have reordered it several times and will continue to do so!
