I now have more deodorants than I can sweat out & use in a lifetime. Okay I exaggerate, but I'm okay with that. The kind people at Crystal* sent me 8(!) deodorants to test out. Crystal brand uses natural mineral salt deodorants meant to keep you smelly free without the harsh chemicals found in most deodorants. Hooray! 

I got sent 4 fragrance free deodorants & 4 fragranced deodorants. Two of the non-fragranced deodorants were in pure mineral stick/rock form (I'll get into it later). Prices range from $3.99 to $6.99, so nothing is out of reach. I was actually anticipating that'd they'd be more expensive due to the quality & ingredients. That's a bonus! :]



These are the 4 non-fragranced deodorants. Two of which are in stick rock form, 1 is a roll on deodorant, & the other is a spray. These contain no harmful chemicals, no Aluminum Chlorohydrate, no Aluminum Zirconium, no parabens, & no phthalates. Very cool. I like that there are multiple ways of use. The idea of the rock is so unique, but my favorite methods are the roll on & the spray due to the ease of application.


Here's a close up of the deodorant rock. It's basically a clear, hard rock. I've never experienced anything like it. The rock needs to be slightly moistened in order to work, otherwise it's completely dry. It warns not to put the rock on granite, which I can only assume creates some sort of reaction. Weird right? The non-fragranced deodorants work just as well as the fragranced ones, so if you're sensitive to scents go for these. I, however, love a good smell. 



Cue the choir of angels. Hallelujah! I love these scents! On the left we have the Onyx Storm spray. This is perfect for guys; it has a musky scent that reminds me of Axe Body Spray. I really like this one & my boyfriend does as well. The Lavender & White Tea, Chamomile & Green Tea, & Pomegranate all smell soooo fantastic. To be honest, I wouldn't be able to choose between them. I'm quite impressed with the range of scents & how long lasting these are.

The thing to remember is that Crystal deodorants are not antiperspirants. They don't contain those harsh chemicals, so you will sweat. At first I was skeptical because I don't like feeling the moistness that is perspiration. However, these deodorants stand up to their claim of keeping you smelling fresh. So despite the sweating, which is completely natural, you will smell delightful. Woohoo!

I would definitely recommend these deodorants. I will be making the switch to natural deodorants because antiperspirants freak me out due to the fact that they stop your body's natural reaction: perspiration. That said, I absolutely recommend purchasing & trying something from this line of products. I would repurchase any of the scented deodorants.

What are your thoughts on deodorants or antiperspirants? Do you prefer scented or non-scented ones? :]
