Most Helpful Positive Review Great alternative to aluminum based deodorants
I am really afraid of aluminum based deodorants, and so I have tried A LOT of brands of "alternative" deodorants. This one ranks very high up on my list so far, it's probably my second favorite. I only use commercial aluminum deodorants if I am giving a presentation or doing something really important, so maybe 4 times a year for the past 5+ years, so I am conditioned to using non-aluminum based deodorants. Even if you aren't, this is a great first product to switch over to because it feels the most like the conventional anti-perspirant/deodorant offerings. At first I wasn't a huge fan but it did win me over with use. It definitely removed the odor from my arm-pits for the better part of a day. It has a very, very faint pleasant smell that I couldn't detect at first, and I can't detect on myself, which definitely meets my criteria for "fragrance free" which is SUPER rare. I would have said the very very faint smell was eucalyptus, but looking at the ingredients its tea tree oil (makes sense, but I really don't care for that scent at all and it didn't bother me one bit!). I also don't like the smell of cocoa or shea butters and I didn't smell them at all. My current favorite deodorant has a really meh smell so I really appreciated its very faint pleasant smell that I had to really try to notice. It is really easy to apply, glides on smooth like conventional deodorants which I like because my current favorite brand is more smear on style. It can leave a considerable white residue on clothes, but this comes out in the wash and hasn't been a deal breaker. I haven't tested it long enough to know if it would cause pit stains in shirts, but its not something I worry about because I feel confident there is no reason it would. I really like all of the ingredients and my underarms have been very smooth and not irritated. It isn't gritty, or pasty like many others I've tried, and it doesn't burn or tingle or cause a breakout or rash despite my sensitive skin. It's dense, and I think one bar will last me a long time. My husband is sensitive to BO and product fragrance and he didn't make any comments which is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a deodorant, honestly. I didn't feel like it masked the smell, either - I felt like it eliminated it- but it did wear off in about 8-10 hours, maybe a little longer (this is impressive - it's been over 90 degrees daily with a heat index above 100 so that is NOT shabby). It's not an antiperspirant so I did have very wet pits which surprised me a little. It also says you should not put it anywhere but your underarms... I don't use it other places (although my current favorite advertises you can put it anywhere).. but now I'm dying to know why they say that and what about it would be harmful if I used elsewhere? Anyway, the packaging is cheerful and this is definitely something I would buy again and will probably add it into the rotation if I'm not feeling my other favorite. I received this product as part of a testing panel (stellar) in exchange for a fair review, but I can say the price is right and I will buy again, especially if I start to see it in stores!
Most Helpful Critical Review Fresh All Day, But Clumpy
I received Hello Fragrance Free Deodorant with Shea from Stellar Product Testing Panel and was excited to try it out! It has always been hard to find a deodorant that is effective, doesn't have a ton of ingredients I cannot pronounce and doesn't have a ton of fragrance. To start off, nothing special about the packaging; it is like any of the other brands. You pull off the top and you see a smooth, Shea butter look. There is a very, very faint scent of Shea butter. Perfect for someone who doesn't want to walk around smelling like deodorant. Then, the application - it does glide on easy, but it ended up leaving thick slab of deodorant on my armpit. I prefer it to go on clear or just barely be visible. But this deodorant went on clumpy. I applied it under my other arm and not only did it go on thick, but part some deodorant fell on the floor! Definitely not a winner there... but I wanted to give the deodorant a chance to redeem itself - can it withstand a 3 mile run? Well, it did! No scent, no smell and I decided to skip the shower to see how it would hold up... it provided a long lasting protection against underarm sweat and smell! To even check it's long-term effectiveness, I applied just before bed, woke up and went for another 3 mile run. Still working!!
So, all in all, 5 stars for effectiveness. 5 stars for (no) scent. 4 stars for texture. 0 stars for application. Thus, I'd rate it 3 stars total.

Heather from Washington DC
Wanted to love this since it is a natural deodorant but it just doesn't provide a lot (if any) odor protection. When I started using this product I began to notice odor more regularly. I have mainly used Secret and Dove deodorants in the past and haven't experienced this issue with those brands.
I like this, leaves skin soft
Den123 from Ny
I like this deodorant. It leaves me sweat free and stink free. It applies smooth and is not hard on the skin. Throughout the day, I dont see any changes in smell. It also doesnt stain clothes which is very important
Love the product, but the package not so much
SheriK from Chicago
I've purchased three time and love it! Unfortunately, 2 of three have been defective and returned due to the packaging not working properly (I cannot roll the deodorant up...). Otherwise, it's amazing!
Use this and didn't have to apply for two days😍🤸🏽♂️

NA from NY
This deodorant is crumbly, and the bar kept breaking. Definitely didn't mask any odor either. It doesn't burn like other deodorants, and is pretty soothing, great for use after shaving.
Lane from Midwest
This stuff actually works. I've been trying to find an unscented deodorant for backpacking because I'm cool with being unwashed for a week, but I can't get over smelling like b.o. Spent the last week testing it out on 8 mile hikes during a heat advisory. I end the hike sweaty and shockingly not smelly.
Verito from CA
I am not one of those who sweat a lot throughout the day. There is definitely no smell to this. As you begin to glide, its a little rough. It is not as smooth in the beginning but once you get it going it does slide easily. The one thing I do not like is that once it dries it gets flaky. The deodorant stays on your arm pit and it clumps up. It does not disappear. Definitely not to use with a sleeveless top. The reason why I bought his was because of the shea butter. I don't feel irritated. Last summer I was having this issue. My armpit was turning brown and it itch so much. I started using natural deodorants and it helped a little. I used olive oil and tea tree oil at night and that helped a lot. I am going to save this for summer and see how it does. Maybe it does better in the warmer morning and glides smoother. I would recommend it if you don't mind the clumping under your pit. I do believe it hydrates
I would buy this again
Party girl 42069 from Ohio
I used it for the first time because I've tried everything else I thought what CLD it hurt and I love it. It keeps me from sweating and I don't smell like sweat I smell nothing and that great
Feels Like Butter
clarissacc from Los Angeles
I had a great experience trying the new fragrance free deodorant with shea butter from Hello. As a big fan of Hello line of products especially dental care I was pleasantly surprised by the new fragrance free deodorant with shea butter. I could really feel the shea butter component leaving my skin hydrated and clean for most of the day without any skin reactions or irritations. I enjoy the freshness and duration after my first application ! I can't wait to try different fragrances from Hello although I have not seen in stores yet.

I'm using this new deo from hello to stay dry in my underarms and odor free during the day. I like that this deodorant has no aluminum, baking soda, parabens, talc or dyes. The deodorant glides on easily and it didn't irritated my skin. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own.
Awesome odor protection yet gentle on my skin
insightfulheart66 from Hendersonville NC
I am a fan of Hello products but this is the first time trying the deodorant. First of all I love that it is Cruelty Free, Vegan, No aluminum, parabens or baking soda. All natural ingredients which was very gentle on my delicate skin. Deodorant went on smoothly, no sticky or tacky feeling, did not leave residue on my clothes. I love that that it is scent free and yet the odor protection lasted all day. The deodorant container is made from 100% recycled materials which is even more the reason for me to love this product. I highly recommend this product. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own.
Great Quality Vegan Deo! #FreeSample
thrillracerESQ from undisclosed
This fragrance free deodorant with shea butter works great! I like to get sweaty, but not smelly. It works as well as or even better than the competitors. It's vegan, never tested on animals, and paraben-free! I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own.
Love the fragrance free!
Apples09 from undisclosed
I love the fact that this is truly fragrance free! Both myself and my husband can use it and not having fragrance is great. It glides on super smooth which is so much better than some other natural deodorants that feel like sand paper on your skin. I've been using this as a daily deodorant and it really works. I do use something stronger when working out but this is awesome for daily use. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own.
Don't think so.
Shermee from Idaho
It's pretty good
Launcher from MA
This is the best of the couple of natural deodorants I've tried for me, but I'm not going to repurchase. I was looking for a simple deodorant to wear around the house that wouldn't get stuff all over my clothes and wouldn't cause my armpits to have a reaction. Those boxes are ticked. It's good for short walks when I start sweating. The texture is thick and paste-like, but spreads nicely. This one is pretty drying, but I don't get itchiness/redness nor does it cause BO after a short amount of time like others like it. I like that it's fragrance free/no essential oils. However, I have no issue with aluminum deodorant when I need all day protection. Overall, really not bad, just not to my taste.
Great Stuff highly recommend

This is my first time trying hello deodorant. I love everything about this brand and that the packaging is 100% from recycled material. This deodorant has a very creamy texture that glides on gently. I thought it would leave a white stain but did not notice any by end of the day. It kept me odor free for the whole day! I received this product for free for the purpose of my review.

KenO from Fresno Ca
I been using the hello deodorant with shea butter and I really enjoy how nice and smooth it glides on, due to it being fragrance free I have had no problems with skin irritation which is a plus for me due to me having sensitive skin. I like that this has protected me from having bad odor and keeps me fresh all day. This is made with no aluminum, baking soda, parabens and is cruelty free. I look forward to continue using this deodorant and highly recommend it. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own.

Great Brand and Product!
StephS from Wisconsin
I received this from Hello directly and I must say I'm very impressed for this being a non-scented deodorant! The texture is smooth and nongreasy and is a perfect choice to wear when you want people to smell your perfume and not your deodorant!! I am not sure how it works of you are SUPER active and sweating all day. Lol, but for basic everyday wear, I recommend it.
Great, very good product
Rhea from Butte, MT
Thank you for the opportunity to try this wonderful product from Hello Fragrance Free Deodorant with Shea Butter. All its features are wonderful, carefully created in a 100% pre-recycled packaging, this odorless deodorant contains incredible ingredients like tea tree oil and shea butter and provides many hours of kindness to fight the stench, soothe and hydrate. It offers 24 hour odor protection that in my case did not work for that long but its softness, its ingredients free of aluminum, sodium bicarbonate, parabens, dyes and stains make up for a few hours less protection. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All are my opinions.
Lissakay03 from Tacoma, Wa
I was very skeptical at first because I have tried other natural deodorants and did not have great results. But, I must say I am quite impressed with the unscented 24 hour odor protection Hello naturally friendly deodorant with shea butter. It glides on nicely and does not leave any white residue on my clothes. It doesn't last a whole 24 hours for me, but more like 8-10 hours before I started noticing I needed to reapply but with it being natural ingredients I would say thats a win. I highly recommend this product and I look forward to trying the scented version in the future.
I was given a free sample for my honest review and all opinions are my own. #GotItFree
Mamabear36 from New York, NY
Takes time for your body to adjust! I have been using all natural deodorant for a long time now so I know even switching all natural brands can cause an adjustment period which I expected. This was so smoothe and comfortable to apply, unlike some competitors that are rock hard. I love how it smells and glides on. It definitely didn't hold up at the gym for my workout but it was extremely efficient for a night out to dinner.
Jossy21love from Sacramento ca
I love that this deodorant is not tested on animals, 100% plant based, smells amazing ,glides on with ease, and doesn't irritate my skin. However the only downside is for me personally it doesn't give me the 24 hour protection I might get about 4 hours then I starts smelling my body odor.
