Rated 3.49 out of 5 stars
The second I saw this product debut, I went and bought it. I've been using natural salt crystal deo for like a decade and in the last couple of years, my pits have gotten really dark. I asked my derm about it and she said it's largely due to irritation. I live in NC where humidity and sweat are just part of life for most of the year, so it's no wonder I had so much irritation and discoloring.
I tried all kinds of creams, toners, etc. to help ease the irritation and hopefully also the dark skin, but nothing made any difference or even made it worse. I liked the salt crystal because it always tackled BO like a champ, but the first time I tried the Glow Deo, I could tell the moisturizers in it would really help. And I was right.
I've been using it for no joke two weeks and I'm already seeing the darkness fade. Any irritation is gone. The temps have been solidly in the mid-90s for all of those two weeks too. No irritation, no sweaty pits, and it smells amazing. I actually like putting it on before bed too because the lavender scent is so relaxing and I think of it as a little wind down pit mask. Someone actually told me I smell good the other day after a super sweaty workout and it was 100% because of this deodorant.
So goodbye forever salt crystal and dark pits!
Smells great but you can't apply it like the other MB deodorants. Half the product fell on the floor when I tried to apply it for the first time not knowing how soft it is. How did anyone NOT notice this in product development lol! Needs a different application approach. If you know you know. Had to use my fingers to apply. Just super messy. They need to figure something out so that half the product doesn't go to waste. Such a shame. It's like trying to put a very thick icing on your pits. So weird

I didn't like how it smell on me.

Smells great, just wanted to try something other than rosy pits. That one I love. But this one, the only down fall is as you roll /place it on your arm pit, it leaves behind chunks
Lindsey from NC
Even though this product has a nice smell, it literally left a sheet of white residue on my arm pits that I had to wipe off. It was also very messy/flaky and was coming out of the component. Would not recommend.

I love this scent so much and has found it stays on throughout the day. I didn't know I needed "brightening" under my arms but can honestly say I can see a difference in evening out my skintone

I use this and space bar every day and I feel like i FINALLY figured out clean deodorant. I don't really stink during the day like I have with other natural deodorants - sometimes at the end of the day it starts creeping in? - and my underarm skin has totally cleared up. I don't know what magic this is but I will repurchase both 100%

I've been using this for a month and I don't usually leave reviews BUT my pits look so good!! My skin has never been this even. Love the scent and that there is no alumnium!!
Nicole from Chicago, IL
The scent is amazing, light lavender mint and I've already noticed brightening results on my pits, 10/10 recommend to buy!!
Kim from Richmond VA
I purchased this specifically to use at night given the other reviews that it's creamier than other deodorants but to help with pit discoloration from an allergic reaction I had to another natural deodorant brand I had a few years ago. I use megababe sunny pits during the day and put this on at night and within 2ish weeks have noticed a significant improvement in my pit discoloration. I don't think this is needed as a long term product or an every day deodorant, but it worked way better than the cortisone my derm prescribed me. Also love a lavender scent before going to sleep.

I am obsessed with Megababe deodorants, and couldn't wait to try this one. Unfortunately, it isn't my favorite. Scent is amazing and it's soothing to the pits, but it melts on the skin and applies way too much. Even keeping it in the fridge, it's just too soft, more like a cream. I was bummed because I live in Mexico and had a friend bring it to me, so I will have to wait to get a different type.

I have been using this product before bed a couple of times a week and my underarms do appear brighter!
But beware, as others have stated, it is very creamy, doesn't roll on, and the tube gets messy. I wouldn't wear this during the day as it's very creamy and would stain dark clothes.
Melissa from Massachusetts
I really like the scent and feel of this deodorant but it needs to be in different packaging. It's very paste-like and doesn't glide on like other mega babe deodorants. I think if it were in an applicator that allowed you to use it to rub into the skin it would work well. I'll be switching back to geo deo.
Misty from San Francisco
It's very thick, sticky, and messy, leaving a white mark on clothes. I tried over a couple of months and can't see any changes totally waste of time and money!
Jo from Northern California
I just love this product, I used the same dove deodorant for years and years, I won't say how many. Then I discovered Katie on Instagram (love her!) and decided to try out some products. This Glow Deo smells so good and it works! Yay!

Leaves thick white paste. Scent does not last at all
Theresa from Toledo, OH
I have suffered from severely irritated skin in my arm pits for 20+ years, I've tried most deodorants on the market, I've tried no deodorant, not shaving, every combination I could think of to avoid the horrible irritation and redness. My dermatologist only recommended using hydrocortisone cream and that didn't help either. However within a week of using this - just a light swipe on the affected areas after my shower at night - and I have seen an incredible improvement - I practically have armpit model pits now! The lavender scent is also a nice bit of aromatherapy at bedtime too. Hubby and kids have also commented on the scent during snuggle sessions and they love it.
EJ from Washington
This is not solid like the other megababe deodorants, or even the glow stick. It has a weird thick pasty texture that does not glide on, you have to rub it in. Disappointed to be returning this.
Noelle from Washington DC
I legitimately sweat an exorbitant amount. I have gotten used to the other Megababe deos not quite stopping the sweatiness, (cuz theyre not antiperspirants but I like the smell so I get them anyway) and this surprisingly kept me dry. Probs the sage!
Stasia from VA
Not sure if I received a defective product or if it's supposed to be like this, but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. It did not glide on - the stick was too soft so it applied thick and paste-like, unlike any other MegaBabe deodorant I have previously tried. It looked like I had applied a thick layer of white paint to my armpits. Smell was nice, but it was completely unusable.
Crystal from CA
Would not buy again. This product smells great but it leaves a thick residue/white cast on my armpits that is impossible to rub in. It left white chunks of deodorant in my pits- don't recommend!
Kassandra from Oxnard
If I could I'd give it no stars. I've used this product for 2 weeks now and have seen so improvement. It's supposed to help with brightening darker spots but it has done nothing for me. I think it's a waste of money in all honesty.
Blue7 from Cleveland, Ohio
Took me a bit to get used to the consistency, but once I did I was in love. I could see noticeable brightening after using just a few days and super happy with the continued progression. It's been really hot, but this has done its job in preventing wetness annd orders. Just ordered a second one so I have a spare.
Hannah from New Jersey
This deodorant actually works! It takes a few applications to see results, but its working for me. It also smells really nice, like lavender and mint. I use it before work and it absorbs sweat and odor. I also use it before bed because I like the smell so much. Just be cautious if you're looking for something that's clear, because this deodorant does show up white if you apply too much.
Jen from Portland, OR
I really wished this worked for me. The deodorant itself is clumpy and doesn't apply well. It has the consistency of cake frosting so too much comes off as you try to apply it. I've wasted too much of the product as too much comes out and then I need to use a tissue to clean up the extra. Disappointing! I love the regular Megababe deo but have walks underarm darkening and needed a product like this.

I just bought this and I love everything about it except for how soft it is. It does not go on smooth and is almost like a paste that you have to rub in, which is really inconvenient.
