      Comments about Nubian Heritage African Black Soap Deodorant:

      I really wanted to love this deodorant because I love the smell of every other African Black Soap product I've ever tried, but it just doesn't work at all. In fact, it actually made everything worse.

      I normally don't sweat very much so I don't need a super-powerful antiperspirant, but after I started using this I started sweating like crazy. It was bad enough that I would have to go to the bathroom to "clean up" my underarms halfway through a normal workday because I felt so gross. I've also never had any real problems with body odor, but that also became much worse after using this deodorant. It smelled great when I first put it on, but by the time I was headed to the bathroom to towel off my underarms I smelled like I hadn't used any deodorant at all!

      Finally, like some other reviewers mentioned, this deodorant also made my underarms break out pretty severely - which really annoyed me because I was hoping that, like other black soap products, this deodorant actually might help prevent acne. I got a lot of those little tiny whiteheads as well as some large, painfully inflamed pimples, which made shaving impossible. I don't know if the breakout was triggered by an ingredient in the deodorant or simply because I was always sweating so much, but the whole situation became far worse after I started using this deodorant so I know it must be related to that.

      I had a similar experience with a Tom's deodorant a couple years ago, so I suspect that these are common problems with "natural" deodorants. My advice? If you've ever tried a deodorant like this and you had a bad time, don't waste your money on another one because there's a good chance that the same things will happen.

      Comments about Nubian Heritage African Black Soap Deodorant:

      I saw this and was so excited because I use African black soap on my face. But whatever other ingredients in this caused so much irritation under my arm pits it became painful. It stayed clamy and wet and left a white residue also. Its been a week since I have stopped using it and I still have some of the rash left. I would not recommend this to anyone. I have used a few natural deodorants and have never had a reaction .

          Comments about Nubian Heritage African Black Soap Deodorant:

          I switched to natural deodorant years ago and am constantly checking new ones out. This one caught my eye and I immediately snatched it up because I love so many other Nubian Heritage products. Too bad its a big fat fail for me. It applies nicely but leaves a very white cast if you apply more than one or two swipes. After about 2 hours of wear, my pits were irritated and wet feeling even though they weren't sweaty. It's hard to describe but something in this product made my skin feel cold and clammy. I have stopped using it since and no longer have any irritation, so I can only assume this was causing some sort of reaction.

            I sweat a lot, especially at the gym and this deodorant keeps me from smelling and getting too wet. The scent isn't awful either...it's hard to describe but it is nice and light.

            Worked great at first but once you shave your armpits then apply that while getting ready it definitely irritates the skin. This deodorant gave me a horrible red rash, had to quit using it.

            Comments about Nubian Heritage African Black Soap Deodorant:

            I really loved the idea of a more natural deodorant and I was really pleased at first! The product has a really nice scent, glides on super smoothly, and I noticed a lot of relief re: perspiration. After a couple uses, though, I started to break out :/ That's probably a me problem, however, so I am willing to try other products from this brand.

              This is the second product I've tried from this line with no success. I really wanted to love this "natural" product but it irritated my skin terribly! Has a great scent though!
