Most Helpful Positive Review Great smelling and effective deodorant
The Hello Clean + Fresh Deodorant with Activated Charcoal at first glance looks very sleek and gender neutral. It has a very fresh scent. Both my husband and five year old son said they liked the scent, although my husband did mention at one point that he thought it smelled a little manly. I personally really liked the smell and felt like it kept smelling nice all day long even when I went hiking in 90 degree weather. I even used it a few times when I didn't get a chance to shower in the morning and it did a great job of covering any body odor. I can honestly say after all the time I have used this I have never once smelled body odor within 24 hours of application.
The deodorant reminded me of other natural deodorants I have used with charcoal in the way that it clumped a little until it warmed up, then it would glide smoothly (I added a picture of clumping before and after warming application). One thing that I noticed after having used this deodorant for approx 3 weeks daily that I haven't noticed before with other natural deodorants I have used is I have found more pimples on my underarms than is typical for me. I am not sure if maybe something in the deodorant just doesn't agree with my skin.
What I liked about the deodorant was the company's commitment to working towards natural healthy products. I don't know if I will purchase this particular deodorant again just due to the fact that I ended up with uncomfortable pimples on my underarms. I will definitely try one of the other deodorants they have created to see if it makes a difference, because I really love the scent and how well it covers any body odor for me!
Also, one more note if you are getting this shipped to you in the heat of summer make sure that you are there to get the package as soon as it arrives or you will be left with a very soupy mess. It happened to the first delivery I got and they sent a replacement with tracking so that the second one didn't melt.
I want to thank the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this deodorant to test.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not as I expected
t first I was impressed by all the specifications on the ingredients and it really got me interested to try it on. I'm always looking for a more natural approach on things I put in my body. I had tried many deodorant claiming to last 24hours and none of them had really worked as advertised. I also tend to get allergic reactions to some ingredients so I am very picky with what I use. The "Hello clean deodorant" worked for few hours on a normal day activities. I really liked the smell it was refreshing and not too strong. However, by the middle of the day, after sweating a little the deodorant didn't keep the odor away. I know this is not an antiperspirant but other brands I used kept bad odor away for the whole day. So after few days I was just applying the deodorant more times a day. After a couple days it also became softer like kind on melting which wasn't easy to manage while applying on the skin and also made my armpits feel wet.
Another thing I noticed was that it kind of stained my armpits making them darker so I just stopped using it after a week and a half.
I have to say that I have pretty sensitive skin and this deodorant didn't give me an allergic reaction so in that sense this was good. I know this can work for other people it just didn't work for me.
I was given this deodorant to try as part of the Stellar Product Testing panel.

Gutzygal from Sacramento CA
I've tried quite a few natural deodorants and this one is by far the best. I don't know if my body will adjust and it will stop working, sometimes that happens but for now I am a huge fan. The price point is great as well compared to other natural deodorants.
Enjoying this fresh and clean product
Lilswimgurl48 from McKinney, Tx
I received a free sample of Hello clean and fresh deodorant with activated charcoal in exchange for my honest opinions. I am loving my experience so far! The product is not too strong and perfume smelling but it still manages to eliminate odor while using. I am excited to continue using the product and I would recommend it to a friend!
Lasts All Day!
Promogirl89 from Ohio
I received this product right as the weather started getting chilly. This means more layers, which can sometimes mean more sweating. This product kept me odor free all day, and lasted until I took a shower at night. It definitely has more of a manly smell than I would like, but it's also a clean smell. It goes on smooth, no bits coming off. It didn't leave any residue on my clothing which is wonderful.
I received this product complimentary in exchange for a review. All opinions are 100% my own.
nessittyy from Long Beach, CA
I've tried my fair share of natural deodorants and have found that not all of them prove to be as effective as others. I'm happy to have found a new favorite with this deodorant! I get really sweaty at work and this has minimized all traces of funk throughout my 9 hour shifts. It leaves minimal debris on clothing and cleans off easily leaving no build up on the skin. I love that this has a very light scent and isn't overpowering or too fragrant. The best part is it's available in 100% previously recycled packaging and it's vegan and cruelty free!

Loved the scent and the feel!
Mal89 from Warrenton, OR
I received this product for free in return for my honest opinion. I absolutely loved the smell, how it felt going on and how it felt all day. Unfortunately literally no deodorants work for me ... so this one was not much different. It kept me smelling fresh for a few hours. But that was about it. For regular people I bet it would be great.
Natural at it's best.

This smells wonderful has great natural ingredients leave you smelling fresh and clean all day. Leaves no stains on your clothes or skin. And works all day! I love it
Works But Leaves Temporary Marks on Your Clothing
Tiffany Yuen from Hawaii
This deodorant works and will keep you from smelling bad for around 10 hours! If you're a naturally, not so stinky person (not me lol), then you might be able to get away with smelling good for 24 hours, but I don't know what that experience is like. If you're wearing one outfit all day and can apply the deodorant AFTER getting dressed- this is going to work. If you change outfits, you'll definitely run the risk of having temporary white streaks all over your shirt. This is the reality when it comes to all solid stick deodorant I've tried in my life, so it's par for the course! The scent is mildly minty and the fragrance didn't kick up my allergies. The formula was gentle and left my underarms smooth and buttery. *This product was #giftedby Hello Friends for me to review! All opinions are my own.*
Jennycastanedaurias from Phoenix az
I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own. I have to say that I'm impressed. This is the first time i try a deodorant with activated charcoal and i have to say I'm in love. I love that it has natural scent for me it gives me a lavander scent but it doesn't seen to have any. I like that the container is made of 100% recycled material which is a plus for me. It is vegan an cruelty free also dermatologists tested. It is easy to apply don't really need any pressure it kind of meltes on your skin when applying.
Great natural deo
MommaT from Woonsocket RI
I love hello oral products so when I saw the deodorant I was pretty excited. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own.
It rolls on smooth (which is super important) smells mild but good - keeps me fresh all day long
So far I prefer over other natural brands I've tried - look forward to trying the other scents in the future
Im not quite sure
VitaminDae from undisclosed
I love the cute bottle design and the idea of a natural deodorant and all of the benefits from it. I've used this deodorant for a week straight, multiple times a day and I end up musty... worst than if I didn't use a deodorant. I am not going to give up on it, yet. I may need to give it more time, but so far it does nothing for me.

Country Bumpkin from South Dakota
I received this for free for the purpose of my review. All my opinions are my own. I tried this deodorant and found out that it really does work! It has a very pleasant scent that is not very overpowering. It is a natural made product without all the harmful ingredients that so many other deodorants have. I have found a new winning deodorant!
Love the smell
cfarr from undisclosed
This natural deodorant smells so fresh and amazing! Overall I am happy with this product. I think it goes on smoothly, smells great and seems to work pretty well. My only downside, and I have yet to find a natural deodorant I completely love because of this, is I do not think it keeps be smelling and feeling fresh all day. I think it would require reapplying some throughout the day. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own.
Lolo from Oregon
I have tried tons of natural deodorants. Most of them don't work at all. This one is by far the best one. It has a very pleasant smell. I did feel like it did a pretty good job of keeping my dry and smelling good. There are a couple things I don't like. The application is a little rough and if you aren't careful you can leave white streaks on your clothes. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own
Not that bad
WVGurl81 from Wv
I was glad to try out this deodorant. I wanted to see if it would last longer then other deodorants. It last longer and it doesn't stain your clothes. I love the little bottle it comes in and love that it doesn't have aluminum in it. I will consider getting it again and will tell all my family about it.
No streaking but doesn't last long
hambline1984 from Stuart VA
I like the smell of this deodorant and that it doesn't streak when putting it on. I deliver mail , by the end of the day it feels like I didn't put any on. I'm sure if I had a job that wasn't so intense This would be a good product.
Clean, fresh fragrance.
ppopp45 from Henderson, Ky.
Received a free product from hellofriends of hello clean and fresh deodorant with charcoal, for the purpose of my honest, unbiased review..I have to say I really like the clean, fresh fragrance of this product. Love that it is not overpowering. I was skeptical at first because of the charcoal but it does glide on smoothly. The only thing I didn't like was that it left a bit of residue after applying. I pretty much just smoothed the marks into my skin. I usually purchase aluminum free products so this one is a keeper, because it does work for me as far as controlling odor. I do recommend this product. All opinions are one hundred percent my own. #ad
Overall great product!

I received this deodorant free for review. I absolutely LOVE it! This is the first I hear of Hello having deodorant as I purchase other products from the company religiously so I was excited! It kept me feeling refreshed all day no sweating nor anything else which is a plus. I plan on purchasing more once I finish this one. Thank you! #freesample
Natural deodorant has come a long way!
Ladybug2482 from undisclosed
This deodorant smells really good. I would say it is the best natural deodorant I have tried. To be honest it doesn't last as long as I would hope so I do have to reapply but it is not much worse than the full strength deodorants out there! I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own. I am so glad I got to try this #freesample of hello natural deodorant with charcoal because I may never have known about it nor been able to let others know they really should give it a try!
Barisaxophone from undisclosed
I'm very impressed with this deodorant. I really like that it is aluminum and cruelty free. The deodorant glided on nicely and it worked better than my usual deodorant. I like the scent and it lasted throughout the day. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own.
Smooth and smell great

The Hello Clean + Fresh Deodorant with Activated Charcoal at first glance looks very sleek. It has a very fresh scent. Both my husband and I love the scent. I personally feel like it kept smelling nice all day long. We do a lot of walking so i kinda sweat a lot, with this deodorant I can smell all day long where my normal brand loses its scent sooner I am definitely switching over to hello deodorant.

Great dedodarnt to get the stink gone for the day
pinky1973 from undisclosed
I really like this it keeps me fresh all day long and it's not sticky either on my armpits
Can't handle my stank. :/
C the Reviewer from CALIFORNIA
About me: First and foremost, I am not a huge water drinker. It is likely the root of all my problems in life, but in regards to this product, it could be partly why I have such strong B.O.
Additionally, I eat everything under the sun. I eat cheese, fried foods, carbs, yogurt, cow's milk, fruits, veggies, red meats, fish, poultry, sugar, butter, alcohol, etc. Anything you can think of, I eat it. So I am sure that also doesn't fully help the Ph under my pits as well.
I sweat. I am and always have been someone who sweats quite a bit. It is not so bad that I need the help of a doctor, but I would say it is more than the normal person. I try to avoid silk shirts and button down shirts for this reason.
I am active. I am not someone who sits around for very long periods of time, so I need a deodorant that can match.
I shave my armpits every other day. I like being hairless under my pits, but I do get some stubble by the next day.
And last, and I am not sure if relevant at all: I am Latinx and live in Oakland CA. So a pretty moderate climate.
So now that you know who I am, here is why I consider that this deodorant didn't work for me. First of all, I wasn't crazy about the smell, it does have this manly/musky smell, which may work for some people. I prefer a more floral type scent. When I'd go into my moderately temperature regulated office (again, I am constantly walking around in my office) my B.O was in full force by 12:00. Sadly that is not even close to 24 hours.... it was maybe 4 hours max. I had no issues with the texture itself of the deodorant, it didn't feel sticky or slimy to me, so that was a plus. I did however get a rash or some type of irritation frequently at night. I am not sure if this was from the shaving, or if it was the deodorant itself.
So the search continues. Next I will be trying Kosas deodorant.
Really don't like the smell
Meaves from California
The best explanation of the smell is kinda musky? I don't know if that was the plan but I'm really not a fan of it I don't know if I'm going to be able to use it all..... it does cover the smell but whether it's a better smell is kinda to be determined I hate the idea of just tossing it because technically it does it's job just don't like this specific smell
