    Promising review: "I was having issues with my deodorant not lasting long enough nor working effectively. I was hesitant to spend $12 on a stick of deodorant, but it is so worth it! It smells great and lasts all day. I can sweat up a storm and have no smell. I would definitely buy this again and again." —Target reviewer

    Get it from Target for $11.99 (available in seven scents).

    2. An aluminum-free deodorant that offers 48 hours of odor protection while promoting the growth of good bacteria and keeping your skin healthy.

    Promising review: "With social distancing and being on lockdown status, I decided to play it safe and order my toiletries online. I've never tried any Tom's deodorants and was in fear of it not working as well as my usual aluminum containing brand of antiperspirant. I've been wanting to try something more natural and better for my body, so the crisp green apple sounded like a good place to start. I love it, it smells so good and I already feel a difference in how my armpits feel after applying it. The other brands tend to make my underarms itch at times, and it seems I always have to reapply, from it having alcohol as an ingredient that in turn makes it evaporate. Tom's is my new go-to now." —K. Marie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three scents).

    3. Malin + Goetz eucalyptus deodorant formulated without aluminum or alcohol so your body can function naturally. While this deodorant is appropriate for all skin types, it's especially great if you have sensitive skin.

    Promising review: "This is a natural way to stay fresh. I used to have really sweaty armpits and would usually sweat through my shirts. In the first couple of weeks it seemed like I was still sweating a lot but after a while this product started keeping me really dry and fresh. Now I don't have embarrassing sweat stains and I also never smell bad. It keeps me fresh and clean and dry! It may seem expensive but this product doesn't have aluminum which is a toxin to your system. The stick lasts way longer than a normal stick of antiperspirant. I highly recommend this product!" —Sorosh

    Get it from Amazon for $22.

    4. An Aesop spray deodorant that's aluminum-free and packs an aromatic vetiver scent. This splurge-worthy spray is a great option if you've been using all-natural deodorants for a while and are looking for an upgrade.

    Promising review: "I am totally converted to this product. It smells really fresh without being sickly like normal deodorants. I have converted my sister to it, too, and we have both received compliments from people mistaking its smell for perfume. It’s also super easy to use and to carry around in your bag. I love it." —Welshie

    Get it from Nordstrom for $35.

    Psst! This was BuzzFeed Review's pick for best natural deodorant!

    5. Or Weleda Wild Rose Deodorant Spray, which has been dermatologically-tested and designed to maintain your skin's natural detoxification process.

    Promising review: "My husband and I both are IN ABSOLUTE LOVE with this high-perfomance deodorant! First off, I am in love with the scent, it's such a beautiful, noble scent, but only for a few moments, as it becomes more subtle and I am usually hyper sensitive to perfume-like smells, but this feels more like aromatherapy. I turned my husband on to it (who naturally has a, well let's say dominant male musk, LOL, OK let's be real...he stinks when au naturale!!!) That was the real test, would it perform all day and night on my musky man? It did and does, and he's wondering why he didn't know about this deodorant's magical powers long ago. Also, it works too if you're already smelling, and then you can just spray on top of it. Not ideal of course, but hey, life happens like that sometimes, if you're in a rush. This is our new fave, we've found our holy grail of natural deodorants!!!" —Lumin108

    Get it from Amazon for $15.48 (available in seven scents).

    6. A bergamot-and-lime-scented deodorant by Schmidt's, which features a magnesium-enriched formula and an invigorating citrus scent.

    Promising review: "I STINK! And I sweat like nuts. I always use the heavy-hitter gel anti-perspirant/deodorants and still sweat through and smell by the end of the day. I was always hesitant to use 'natural' products as I was sold the BS that they were not strong. Well this company's products WORK! No more funk even when I sweat a lot. I have four different scents and all work the same —- WELL! I love the product. Also had many bumps and redness under my arms for years — now smooth and even. Really am happy with this brand." —Mary K.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.01.

    7. A Kopari coconut deodorant that's 100% plant-based and nontoxic. It glides on clear, provides odor protection, and will outlast even your longest and smelliest days.

    Promising review: "The best deodorant ever! I love everything about this deodorant. I don't experience any underarm rashes as I have with other "natural" deodorants. There is no yellowing of white shirts or white marks on my dark clothing. I love the smell. I was concerned that it would smell like coconut, but after reading reviews that it did not I was sold on purchasing it. The smell is subtle, but I love the way the smell amplifies when I do sweat." —Dianna83

    Get it from Sephora for $14 (available in three scents).

    8. An Ursa Major Hoppin' Fresh Deodorant formulated with 25 naturally-derived ingredients including hops, kaolin clay, and aloe vera that work together to fight odor and absorb moisture.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite deodorant. I only shop cruelty-free, and I've been disappointed in a lot of the cruelty-free deodorants out there. I've been using this one for nearly a week in the humid summer heat and I love it! Since this is a new product for me I've been really mindful of how it applies, how long it lasts, etc. And no lie, I sniff my pits every night before a shower for the formal assessment and this has passed every night! I also find that the scent is very gender-neutral. I'm a female and I really enjoy it, and I might also purchase it for my boyfriend because I think it would work well for him, too. I really wouldn't change anything about this product." —Cara

    Get it from Amazon for $18.

    9. An active botanical deodorant that can help reverse damage to your skin from toxic chemicals, and is made with therapeutic-grade lavender and eucalyptus essential oils.

    Promising review: "I’ve made the transition out of chemical deodorants and into natural/organic deodorants about two years ago. In that time, I struggled with trying to find a deodorant that can actually work with sweating and stink! Since I’m used to wearing natural/organic, my sweating has definitely decreased, however I still struggled with trying to find a deodorant and antiperspirant to help with a stink all day long. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars and countless trials to find one that will last all day. THIS ONE WORKS!! I can apply straight from the container without needing to blend with my fingers which I LOVE (most strong natural/organic deodorants require applying with fingers), the product applies smoothly and thin (you don’t need that much, but I do a couple swipes to be on the safe side), there is a light scent which is pleasant and minty smelling (from the eucalyptus), and best part of all, I can go the WHOLE DAY with only ONE application! Seriously, it’s a game-changer!" —Kelly C

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    10. A Humble deodorant stick containing only four natural ingredients and an assortment of pure essential oils to create a variety of irresistible scents.

    Promising review: "I've tried many natural deodorants over the past 10 years or so, and this one is my favorite! It's been great for my sensitive skin, has no icky ingredients, is effective, and smells heavenly! I find myself wanting to reapply it just to refresh the lovely scent of Palo Santo, but it is still quite effective without reapplying. The light, woodsy/earthy natural fragrance blend of Palo Santo, Frankincense, and Vanilla (3 of my favorite scents!) isn't overpowering, and could absolutely be considered unisex. I would recommend this to others, and will be repurchasing." —Sabrina Medina

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 11 scents).

    11. Art of Sport natural deodorant made with matcha and arrowroot that'll keep you cool and smelling fresh through your toughest sweat sesh.

    Promising review: "This is my first time using natural deodorant and I'm in love. After scouring the internet for a natural product that actually works I found AOS. I'm thrilled with your product! It works just as well as aluminum filled deodorant but it's safe and it smells like heaven!! I will never use another product again. I'm hooked!! Thank you for making such an amazing product! And the customer service at AOS outstanding as well!! You will not be disappointed!" —Tamara

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    12. Type: A liquid deodorant that combines natural and synthetic ingredients to create a safe, non-toxic deodorant that won't stain, streak, or leave a pesky residue on your skin after using it.

    Promising review: "I have tried SO many natural deodorants trying to find my HG and I think the search is finally over!! I am really sensitive to both baking soda AND coconut oil (which, ya know, almost ALL natural deodorants are made of), so most brands break me out into a nasty, painful and ugly underarm rash, but not this one!! The application is easy and smooth, it doesn’t leave marks on my clothing, and the scent is light and delicious. It also REALLY keeps me dry, and I’m a pretty sweaty girl! In conclusion, TRY THIS STUFF CAUSE IT’S AWESOME!!!" —H.K. Wright

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in six scents).

    13. A vegan deodorant from Love, Beauty, and Planet made with ethically-sourced ylang ylang extract to keep you smelling your best. Better yet, the canisters are made from 43% recycled plastics.

    Promising review: "I love this deodorant. I’ve been trying for a year to find a good aluminum free deodorant, but every brand I’ve tried so far doesn’t hold up. They all have very strong scents when you apply them and by evening you need to reapply. Forget trying to sleep without waking up smelling like a barn... THIS product however! The scent is gentle and not overpowering and it actually works. You can work up a sweat and still feel comfortable. Best aluminum free product I’ve tried yet." —Jaci

    Get it from Amazon for $6.94+ (available in three scents).

    14. A Lume whole body deodorant that, you guessed it, can be used from your armpits to your feet.

    Promising review: "It's important to know, I have pretty severe hyperhidrosis and just sweat harder than anyone I've ever met in general, so naturally I get stinky very very easily. For me, I had to use more than the recommended 'a little goes a long way.' Basically I slather my pits. At first it will feel excessive, but as others have mentioned, the product absorbs pretty well, and by the time I'm done rubbing it in 'other places' the sticky feeling is gone. It doesn't perfume me, it just smells like nothing. Smelling like nothing is all I ever wanted. Thanks Lume." —Miss Isobel Devi

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    15. An Arm & Hammer Essentials deodorant free of aluminum, parabens, and phthalates in an easy, glide-on gel.

    Promising review: "I've been using this deodorant for years and it’s effective. I’ve tried other natural deodorants and they failed, but this one has worked for me. It contains triclosan which kills odor-causing bacteria. Please note, This is not antiperspirant, and does not contain cancer-causing aluminum. sweating doesn’t bother me as long as I don’t smell, and I think I sweat less now that my pits aren’t clogged up with antiperspirant. The scent is unisex and just smells fresh, but is honestly a little on the masculine side. It doesn’t clash with the fragrances I wear though, and just ends up smelling clean." —Shani Crowe

    Get a 4-pack from Amazon for $13.96.

    16. A Hint eucalyptus lemon deodorant that comes in a convenient 1 oz size, making it ideal for tossing in your work or travel bag alongside your bottle of zero-calorie Hint lemon water.

    Promising review: "This has a great and subtle smell and rolls on nicely. As other reviewers mention, it's a small deodorant, which makes it great to throw in your purse or travel with." —Sara L.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in two sizes).

    17. And a FREEDOM deodorant stick available in a variety of scents, including an unscented version for those with especially sensitive skin.

    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING! I'm making the switch to nontoxic, clean ingredients in everything I use and I started with this deodorant. It's been about three weeks and it's already worked wonders! I used to have to apply deodorant every day, sometimes multiple times a day, because even the most minute amount of sweat would make me smelly. There was always a subtle hint of BO that would linger. Since I've started using this that smell has gone away completely. I use this every other day AT MOST. Usually I apply it every three days after I shower. I really put it to the test yesterday. I went on a 5-mile hike in 85 degree weather and when I was finished with that I went to the gym and worked out for about an hour. I was drenched in sweat a majority of the day and I did the sniff test before I showered and I DIDN'T SMELL! It's crazy! Not even a hint of body odor. I'm sticking with this stuff for life!" —Ashley
