Most Helpful Positive Review The product I've been searching for
I hesitated on buy this because well the price of it is super high. I've literally tried every natural deodorant on the market and didn't like that most of them had baking soda which caused irritation for me as well as making my light colored clothes have stains. I splurged with the knowledge of having a 30 day return policy. I've had this product since October it is now January I have plenty of product left for use!!! I workout regularly 3-5 times a week and never have issues with me smelling. Also the rose smell isn't too strong although I wish there was more options for scent. I find the product feeling virtually gone after about the first hour (so no sticky ness or residue). I can't wait to see if I still love this product during the summer time. I will repurchase and I have suggested this product to people already.
Most Helpful Critical Review Nope
So here's problem #1: they brag out how they don't have alum. RIGHT. Because in fact, only antiperspirants have that. But they are a different thing, a deODORant. To make the smell go away. What they were supposed to brag about is that, in the realm of natural deodorants, they don't have baking soda, which irritates some folks. But guess what? Without the baking soda, you don't get deODORing. So, as amazing as this stuff smells, it doesn't keep odor from appearing any longer than my own natural unscented body does, which is to say about 5-6 hours. So it's just an underarm perfume. Therefore, what I do is apply it OVER my usual natural unscented DEODORANT, to smell nice. And #2: the container: heavens it's huge and heavy!! And "sturdy," I cannot imagine why they needed this big honkin' thing for a roll of gel and wax. I travel alot and consider what I pac in terms of ounces. There is no way this baby is going on a trip with me. I thought about cutting off the top and smooshing it into an old blush-stick tube. Curious about the new mini's actual tube in terms of weight.

i purchased this product because a Allure ranked it as one of its top organic deodorants for women. It smells good and seems to work fine, right now. I live in North Carolina. The weather is cooler right now and due to COVID-19, I'm not nearly as active as I had been. The deodorant seems to holdup under the current conditions but I have my doubt about when the weather gets warmer. I have started doing physical therapy to recover from surgery. I have been exercises to help get my ankle strong and I have started to notice a slight odor after doing pt. I suspect that when the weather gets warmer and when my activity levels increase, this deodorant will not work.

I've been using natural deodorant for about 5 years. The only issue I've ever had is that they just didn't work very well. After a week of using this one, not only did it not work very well, my armpits developed a huge and painful rash. I stopped using it two weeks ago and I still have a horrible rash in both armpits.
So sad about this product
Mishy from Florida
I really wanted to love it but I got the worst rash. I tried to stop and start again but it just came back even worse. Now I have a dark stain under one arm because of how severe it hit. I loved the scent and the consistency but it just sucks it didn't work out.
belle from IL
wasn't sure about the smell of this at first, but after a few days i really started to love it, it goes on smooth and actually lasts a long time.
Wanted to Love It
Lauren from Jim Thorpe
I really wanted to love this deodorant, but it gave me a horrible rash. I tried the Sunny Pits scent and same problem. The scent didn't last long for me either. I'll stick to Megababe hand sanitizer and thigh rescue.
Love this product
Elaine from Chicago, IL
I've been using this product for a couple of years and I can't recommend it enough! There is definitely a period of detox where you may think you smell or are sweating, but after you get over that, this product works amazing. I recommend Megababe's deodorant wipes for that first detox period - You can use them to freshen up and then re-apply the deodorant before the gym or second half of the day. I love Megababe!!
Broke me out
TeeJay from Texas
I had been trying to find a natural deodorant and thought I had found it with Megababe. Unfortunately, this (and other natural deodorants) broke me out. I will say that I really did like this.
Not worth it
D from WA
Was attempting to try a more natural deodorant and this honestly made me smell worse than without any deodorant. I've really tried it for a month and I have come to hate it. I'm sad, I really wish it worked for me.
ari from chicago
this barely works
Not my favorite scent
mewzikgirl from Milwaukee, WI
I ordered this and Beachy Pits since I finally had a 20% and could use it towards this. Between the two, I'm definitely drawn to Beachy, but both are really great natural, better for you products. Can't believe I waited so long; I'm convinced it's worth it.
I was hopeful
Jade from Duluth, Ga
I was so excited about this product! It smells nice, goes on smoothly, and seems to work pretty well. Unfortunately, my skin had a reaction and my underarms had a red rash- there was no burning or itching, just discoloration. I was so disappointed because other than the reaction to my own skin, I think this product works great!
My favorite deodorant!
Em Cee from Houston, TX
I love this deodorant so much! It's my favorite! Better than N8IV in my honest opinion. A lot better than any other deodorant I have tried. I have used one entire stick and have repurchased another one. I've tried purchasing cheaper but they just don't do it for me. It smells really good but gentle for someone like me who has a sensitive nose. Doesn't irritate my throat like other ones on the market. You have to reapply and shower daily if you want it to work. After your workouts. Stuff you should already be doing anyways. If it's not effective for you...it's you, not the deodorant.
Smells great and works to keep odor at bay
907mama from Alaska
I like that this smells good. it doesn't have baking soda, so my under arms don't get irritated. It works to keep odor away. I do need to reapply it if I am especially physically active.
Lexii from Florida
So, I've been using this from before I became pregnant to now being a few months into pregnancy and I have different reviews. I wanted to try a more natural deodorant instead of the antiperspirants with the aluminum. Not that I'm concerned, but I thought I'd look into it. I heard good things, so I wanted to give it a chance. At the beginning, the scent wasn't too bad, maybe a little too perfumey for my liking, but it wasn't strong. It is now UNBEARABLE and WAY too strong for my increased sense of smell. Unfortunately, even before everything, it didn't really last me more than a couple of hours and I'm not really a sweaty person at all. Maybe that's just me and my body chemistry. I have sensitive skin, but I didn't experience and of the irritation other people have so there's gotta be an ingredient that's causing that in others. All in all, fine, but won't be buying again.
Does not work longer than an hour
D from Seattle
Really only lasts an hour or so - really disappointed.
Jenna from Missouri
This product is fantastic! I have very sensitive skin and have not had a single breakout yet! I have been using it with the mask and am in love with both products! Lightweight and like I don't have anything on. The smell is wonderful...not an overkill perfume smell like some. Just subtle enough to be feminine 💖
Holly from Orange County
I loved this at first. It was the best natural deodorant I had tried with scent and staying powder. Unfortunately it left me with rashy pits instead of rosy ones about two weeks in. It hurt just to wear a bra and my armpits were visibly red and irritated. I have no idea what is in it that is so irritating. Natural doesn't mean it's always better for you. I'm not the only one to have experienced this. I threw the deodorant away but I suspect they were probably using essential oils which is VERY sensitizing to the skin. Plz avoid essential oils coming into direct and prolonged contact with the body!! Even if you aren't initially irritated, fragrance(even natural fragrance) can cause sensitization over time. Avoid product!!
Didn't do anything
Sarah from Boulder City NV
The product smells great in the packaging. However it did not deodorize are all. I know it isn't an antiperspirant, but I did expect it to at least deodorize. I think I end up exactly the same as I would be if I hadn't worn any deodorant.
Roze from Washington DC
I initially bought this deodorant because it is aluminum-free. After having tried it for myself I can honestly say that I am completely pleased with the product. It has a great and light rosy smell and I have had no issues with irritation at all. I am so very pleased that it is aluminum-free and better for my overall health. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
LAE from St. Louis
I have tried a LOT of natural deodorants and claiming to be the "best" and most of them have either not worked for me or given me a rash. I waited until I was completely finished with my stick of this until writing my review.
1. It smells great. I think it smells more like baby powder.
2. It has lasted me almost 6 months and that's applying it sometimes twice a day.
3. It has worked for me, even after workouts,I still feel clean.
4. It didn't cause me to break out in a rash.
5. You feel dry after applying it....it's not sticky, more silky. I do think it helps to not put your clothing on immediately after, let it get some air first...but maybe that's just me. :)
I do realize that everyone reacts differently to products. This may not work for everyone. However, I would say give it a shot. Also, you may need to do an armpit detox (which I have done several times in the past six months) if you're trying natural deodorant for the first time.
There are some times when I feel I need to reapply to freshen up, but I would rather reapply with a cleaner product that one filled with stuff not great for my body.
Overall, I really like this, I just bought my second stick.
better than sunny pits
kuky from maryland
works slightly better than sunny pits. however, still no staying power to combat sour scent of pits after 6 hrs.
I wanted to love it
Mlentowski from Massachusetts
I really love the other MegaBabe products I have but Rosy Pits after only two uses gave me sever irritation. Very red and painful and came with a terrible smell in my pits. After not using for two days, my pits completely cleared up. It was the only product I added so it had to be my body reactions to Rosy Pits. I usually do not have sensitivity to products but I also have this reaction to all Dove products.
Lasts 30 minutes
CLUR from Boston
This deodorant has no staying power. Disappointing because it smells really good
the best of the best
haley from montana
i've never been able to find a dang deodorant that stayed on and prevented b.o. until trying this. it worked so good. i will never switch to anything else.
Gwennyco from Wooster, OH
I like that this product goes on so smoothly, smells nice and works longer than other "natural" products at fighting odor. I'm excited to try one of the other scents next. If I could change one thing, I'd remove "fragrance" from the ingredient list.
