Most Helpful Positive Review WOW
I usually don't write reviews but I had to share with this one!! I have struggled my whole life to find a deodorant that works. I've tried regular store bought such as dove, secret, natural such as native, sage and even prescription, nothing worked they all actually made me stink!! If I didn't wear deodorant I'd smell like BO, and when I'd wear deodorant I'd smell like I tried to coverup the BO with some feminine smell and just made it worse.,. Needless to say it was a big confidence downer for me I never wanted to hug people, relax with my arms up, grab something from up high with someone near me... I wanted to try a few things front blume so I figured whats another one to try maybe the probiotics will work for me.... Well this literally has changed my life.... I had to experiment a little with application as I shower at night time so I'd put it on before bed and I broke out in a rash after the first few nights, but it worked !!! so I didn't want to give up, I contacted Blume they were very helpful and told me the baking soda can cause that reaction, not to apply at night. So after that I applied when I was getting ready for work in the mornings and I have had 0 issues!! I do breathe my hot breath on the stick before I first apply to melt the formula a little before applying as it is kind of uncomfortable when you first apply as it's quite hard but aside from that, I FINALLY am no longer self conscious I have NO smell, nothing!!! I am SO happy.... Thank you Blume!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Works, but the texture is too harsh
I've been using natural deodorants for years, and I've tried most of the big names on the market. I was really happy with Native for about 2 years until it started causing major skin irritation (either my skin became sensitive to one of the ingredients over time, or their formula changed when they got bought out by P&G...). In my hunt for a replacement I decided to try Blume, since I already use their face products. I like that they focus on gentle, skin friendly ingredients; as someone with really sensitive skin, that's very important to me. I've been using Hug Me for about a week now. I'll start with the positives: IT WORKS. I try never to exaggerate in product reviews so I mean it when I say I've had ZERO body odor while using this deodorant. I put it through some pretty serious tests this week too: warm weather, a lot of walking/lugging around heavy stuff, and a ton of stress sweat. But it never let me down. At the end of a rough 16 hour day I can stick my nose right up in my pits and there is absolutely no stink. I can't even say that about Native. And since it's unscented, you know it's not just covering it up, but truly preventing the smell. I even skipped showering/reapplying one day (I was just bumming around the house), and at the end of that SECOND day there was still zero smell. I don't think I've ever encountered a deodorant so effective, even back in my clinical strength antiperspirant days. Ok, I know that's a lot of gushing, but now...the bad: it feels like rubbing straight up sandpaper against my poor sensitive pits. The texture of this stick is SO rough, at first I couldn't even get it to apply at all; I had to rub it against my arm a bunch before it softened enough to roll on. But even then it feels like it's scraping my skin. One day my pits felt like they were on fire all day because it had actually SCRATCHED me. Not the plastic case, I had the stick rolled out pretty far, but the actual deodorant itself left scratches on my skin. Now yes, I realize my skin is probably more sensitive than the average person, but I can't imagine this texture feels ideal for anyone. I've continued using the trick of pre-rubbing it on my forearm a bunch to soften it up with my body temp first, but this a) wastes product and b)means I then have to scrub my forearm (which is less sensitive than my armpits but still gets scratched up). And even then, the friction of it rubbing inside my pits all day as I move still causes some irritation (it also causes it to clump/flake off a bit). For now I've decided that the major upside of no stink is worth having to go through extra steps and sometimes deal with skin irritation. It does seem to be getting slightly better as my body adjusts, or maybe the stick is softening slightly as it gets used. But if Blume could find a way to soften the formula (maybe even put it in a jar like old-school Schmidt's if necessary) I would be a user for life and would recommend it to everyone I know.

amt from Georgia
This deodorant is the first one where I don't smell no matter how hot it is outside and where it doesn't make me itch. Unfortunately after a while I noticed my underarms are extremely dark and wrinkly. I had to stop using this because of how dark my underarms got. It's a good deodorant just didn't do well with my skin.
taylor from TX
this is the only deodorant that has worked for me in the past few years. i was skeptical cause it was unscented but it completely neutralizes all odor. don't be afraid to layer it on either; it doesn't get sticky!!!!
Bluesy80 from Gillette, Wy
I was excited to try since it had a lot of positive reviews. This made me break out into a huge rash and discolored my underarms so bad!!! Did not even work, after 4 hrs this made my pits smell worse than my original secret clinical ever did! If I could I would give it no stars! Do not buy!
Better than mens deodorant
10/10 recommend from Tampa, FL
I have never been big on natural deodorant because they just wouldn't work and would irritate my skin. This product had such great reviews I figured I'd give it a try and it works amazing. I previously used old spice deodorant and even that would wear off after a long day in the Florida heat but this stuff works amazing and I love that it is scentless. I just got back from an hour walk in 90+ degree weather and still smell great.
High hopes but fell short

I suffer from not so fresh pits and have tried everything. Saw this and read the reviews but unfortunately it didn't anything different than all the others. My search continues.
Not Too Shabby
Sinclair from NY
Worked pretty well. This has become my go to. I'm still a bit funky after a really hot/humid day so I'm still working that out. Overall, not bad I guess.
A deodorant that actually works for me!!!
AzulChica from Long Beach
Cautiously optimistic. I've been looking for one natural deodorant that works with my body chemistry. Finding the right has been costly. I recently read a review of some new natural deodorants and Hug Me was one. I decided to try it. It's almost been a week and I'm impressed. After several workouts, no odor and I've even noticed less wetness. I use the Underarm Bar in addition to Hug Me.
Wanted to love it...

I love Hug Me deodorant!
Lisa B. from US
I love Hug Me deodorant! The only thing is, it's a little rough when applied or I would have given it 5 stars. As far as protection goes, it's wonderful! It lasts a really long time and the natural ingredients make me even more comfortable using it. My under arms are super sensitive, I'll definitely be repurchasing this!
1st-time User w/ Skin Sensitivities: A-Plus!
Darby O. from US
My underarm skin is problematic, I've come to accept it. For my allergic contact dermatitis, I have tried everything available in stores that claims to be "Fragrance free" or "Free of Artificial Fragrance." Blume does not mess around with phony promises; it delivers. The formula was not irritating, despite my hesitation to apply given its strong, "natural," woodsy smell. The strength of the product to keep the user dry, all-day, also holds up - they were telling the whole truth! Overall, I would (and have) recommend this product to female friends and fam, and plan to continue use.
This is the best deodorant
Hannah A. from US
This is the best deodorant I've ever used! It lasts a long time, with natural ingredients. It only takes a small amount so lasts a good while. Unlike other unscented deodorants I've used, this is very neutrally scented. Love it!
I have a very hard
Sheree F. from US
I have a very hard time with natural deodorants. This one has been phenomenal! A couple of swipes and I good all day long. Even going to the gym I stay smell free and feel comfortable!
This is the best clean
Nicole B. from US
This is the best clean deodorant I have used... I work out pretty vigorously on most days. This stuff keeps me smelling fresh, and keeps my sweat pretty tame too. I am allergic to most generic deodorants, and the more natural ones are often disappointing, but the hug me deodorant is fantastic. Will be repurchasing indefinitely.
Bought it for my daughter,

Bought it for my daughter, but today I ran out of my own and let me say, it' works. I suffer from hot flashes and and this kept me from dry. .
Jennifer C. from US
I have legit tried every single natural" deodorant out there. I've made my own, detoxed myself multiple times, tried every natural deodorant that I could find and even gone without and no matter what I did I still stunk! I can honestly say that the Hug Me deodorant really works. I can make it a full 24 hours without having to reapply and without stinking. It's been such a struggle to find a product that works so I'm super grateful my friend sent me the link to try Blume!!
Heather G. from US
I have tried all of the natural deodorants out there and this is the only one that really works! No smell, and no underarm sweat!

Miracle Armpit Magic Cream
Savannah L. from US
I once gave this deodorant a negative review after having a mild reaction to it, however after giving it a second shot a few months later, it changed EVERYTHING for me. I've tried nearly every natural deodorant on the market with varied results, but I always come back to Hug Me. It's the only deodorant I can wear now - nothing else stands up to it! I apply it after getting out of the shower, and a single application lasts up to about 36 stink-free hours. Now whenever I run low, I buy 2-3 boxes of it at a time - I can't imagine going a day without this miracle armpit cream! Even my ex husband is hooked on it. Thanks for the magic, Blume!
