We are all friends here, so I am going to get real with you: I, a person just trying live their dang life, get terrible B.O. during the day.

It's frustrating, annoying, inconvenient, embarrassing, and a whole list of things that I could go on and on about. The worst part is I have struggled to find a product that provides all-day protection.

I've tried scent-free deodorants, and ones with such strong perfumes that they creates a gross smell when mixed with my armpit funk. (Sorry, but you know what you came here for! Oh, and the clinical-strength ones are just...blah.

Honestly, I had pretty much given up on finding an effective deodorant when I decided to try Fresh's sugar roll-on deodorant antiperspirant ($19) on a total whim. It had promising reviews, and I loooove all of their other products, so I thought, Why not?

Promising reviews: "Omg, wow is all I can say about this product. This is the ONLY antiperspirant/deodorant that I've ever used that actually works!!! I work 12-plus hours daily and by the end of the day, I still smell like NOTHING! There is at first a lemony sweet smell that disappears within 10 minutes and then NOTHING! No B.O., no nasty deodorant smell when you're sweating...just NOTHING!" —sa87"I have a hard time finding a deodorant that actually works for me because I have sensitive underarms. This works amazing for me, it doesn't dry my skin out or make me itchy, and it lasts all day without noticing any odor, unlike other brands you find at the store. So far this one's a keeper." —Elle09

Let me start by saying that this has been a game-changer for me and my stanky, sweaty pits. It's an alcohol-free (great for sensitive skin!) cooling liquid that rolls on, feels super refreshing, and dries completely clear.

Ok, this *is* my arm, but it was too hard to take a video of myself applying it to my armpits.

It takes about a couple minutes to dry, but once it's set, there is seriously no white residue left behind. I've even worn black shirts and nothing transferred to the material! It's heaven-sent, I swear.

As for smell, it has a subtle fruity scent, but it's hardly noticeable. I have traditionally stuck with scented antiperspirants, under the impression that a strong floral smell would mask any B.O., but it has honestly always done the opposite. As soon as I'd start sweating, I'd get a waft of that strong, flowery smell and felt like I was wearing a giant sign on my head that said HEY EVERYONE, THIS GIRL IS SWEATIN' UP A STORM OVER HERE!But not with this roll-on deodorant. I hardly sweat at work now, and when I do, there is NO nasty body odor/coconut paradise combo. I can't really describe it, but it just feels...natural.

It's a sugar roll-on — the sugar is intended to inhibit the growth of bacteria — but its consistency isn't grainy like you might think it would be. It's a silky gel that just glides on and offers odor protection pretty much all day.

I've noticed that I can last an entire workday without feeling gross and smelly. By the time I get home and jump in the shower, I feel like most of it has worn off — but considering it holds up when it matters, this doesn't really bother me. If I have after-work plans, I'll just throw it in my bag and reapply before happy hour. I should probably just by a second one to keep in my purse! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯I've only had it for a month so I can't say how long a bottle typically lasts, but reviewers mentioned it took them about three months to use it up. Promising review: "I love this product! I started using this deodorant about two years ago because I was tired of products that stained my white blouses, not to mention my LBD. I know it's a bit pricey for deodorant, but believe me, it's worth every dime, and lasts for at least three months. The benefits of softer underarm skin is a bonus." —chocolatecherry

The last thing I will say about this magical product is that at $19, it's on the pricier side compared to other deodorants, which I will admit originally made me hesitant. But guys: It's SO WORTH IT.

I would spend $11 to $15 on clinical-strength deodorants, so dropping the extra few bucks for something that truly works just made sense. I've been sweatin' on this earth for a long-ass time and nothing has come close to this product for me. It's restored some confidence in my day-to-day that I hadn't realized I had lost.For some great natural deodorant options, check out BuzzFeed Reviews.
