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.

Would not recommend to anyone. This deodorant destroyed my armpits. I've never had a reaction like this before to a natural deodorant. I'm actually shocked they still have it for sale.
Ditto on the rash
Southern person who sweats alot from TX
So at first it was fine, smells lovely and lasted- no rashes like other reviewers! but then after a few days it started to make my armpits itchy and gave me a bit of redness, aka the beginnings of a rash. A few hours after application I would STINK, and ya girl doesnt need that.
If I could give this less than 1 star I totally would
Shannon from FL
I've been using this product for a few days now and I was stoked about the organic factor of this deodorant, I also was really excited about the rosey scent. After wearing it for some time now I have developed SEVERE rashes and hyperpigmentation that looks like dark bruising under my arms. I'm really concerned because of the terrible reaction I've had and when I saw my underarms I was in shock. I had to look up the product to see the reviews and what I saw was a lot of people experiencing the same issue. My underarms are so irritated, red, scorching and on top of that I have large dark circles under my arms. If I were you, I would never take the chance on this product. I've never had such a terrible reaction from something like this. Also, it DOES NOT keep your pits smelling like roses for long. After an hour, the smell turns into B.O. & isn't even effective for its original purpose which is to keep your underarms smelling fresh. TERRIBLEEE PRODUCT!!! Should be throw away entirely.
Loved it but it wasn't good at the end
Lauren from Las Vegas
I got this about more than a month ago. I loved it in the beginning but then I noticed it started burning. Later on I noticed that whenever I would sweat it would make my arm pits super itchy and when I checked my armpits later on they were red and puffy and started making my armpits dark. My boyfriend also had to use it because he didn't have a deodorant when he came to visit me and even this same reaction happened to him. When we both tried using a different type of deodorant and we got the same reaction with the deodorants we used to use on the daily. I'm not sure what this deodorant has in the ingredients list that made it seem like our skin is addicted to this which is odd because when there I keep using it I still get the same reaction on my armpits. I wouldn't recommend this to someone with sensitive skin.
I would buy it again only if it does what i want it to do.
Lucille from Alabama
under arms and only used for 2 wks. and i like it so far.
Gave me a rash
Kait from NJ
I used this deodorant a while back and really liked that it lasted all day for me. The first time I used it I developed a rash and didn't think it was related to the deodorant. I eventually switched back to old spice and the irritation went away. I tried rosy pits again and the day after I experienced itchy, bumpy, burning armpits. Safe to say something in this is not great for those with sensitive skin :(
Nae from Texas
At first it seemed ok but as the weeks went by I started getting itchy and had bad odor. I developed a rash under my arm and finally stopped using it. My rash has gone away and I have no more itching.
My absolute FAV!!
Kml718 from California
I love everything about this deodorant! The scent (for me) is so lovely! I do have to reapply once a day if I have a very active day (or use MB deodorant wipes) but that's pretty much my only complaint. It has treated my underarms well and I've been using it for more than a year now.
Great natural deodorant
julianne from chicago
I love the scent of this deodorant. Like all natural deodorants, it might not last all day. But this is definitely one of the best I've tried (and I've tried a lot). I repurchase this one.
Still have BO, plus very itchy red rash
NotImpressed from KY
The smell of this deodorant is lovely. However, it did not keep me from having BO during normal work days. I couldn't imagine getting hot or working out with just this deodorant on. After using this for a few days, my armpits got a deep red almost purple rash and started burning and itching very badly. This took several days to go away and the only thing that made it feel better was putting ice packs under my arms. I have since read several reviews about rashes, itching, not preventing odor. I would definitely not recommend this deodorant.
I Have been buying this EXCLUSIVELY for two years
whittyp from Denver, CO
I love megababe products and Katie Sturino Is an ICON. I have been using this deodorant for two years now and I've never smelt or felt better about my underarms! I did go through a two-ish week detox period at the beginning and would reapply the deo around 3ish in the afternoon to help for those two weeks. ANOTHER HUGE PLUS was that once I started using this deodorant, the white shirts I bought after switching over NEVER GOT THE YELLOW/GRAY underarm stain!!! It is magic!
Once she came out with the Happy pits mask that was a GAME CHANGER, I recommend everyone get this deo and the underarm mask to help with the detox period/as the weather gets warmer I use the mask a little more often to keep my pits clean and detoxed!
kayla from usa
I think after the first use it soaks up your body odor and from now you're just putting body odor on over and over again not to mention it makes your arm pits itchy
Stink by the end of the day
CS from Chicago, IL
Smells great, but doesn't work. By the end of the day I stink. Soap Walla worked much better fir me, but it's hard to find.

Will not be buying this again

Product works and smells great but after almost a month of use I noticed my underarms started getting a dark, itchy rash like hyperpigmentation.
Is It Worth the Risk?
Nikko from Raleigh, NC
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.
mak from Salt Lake City, UT
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.
