Honestly pHresh’s NEW Formula Is pHenomenal!
Our sticks are pH balanced:) What does this mean you ask? Most natural deodorant sticks are formulated with baking soda which strips the natural pH of your skin causing rash, redness and irritation in over half of the population- ouch! Our sticks are thoughtfully formulated with an innovation in natural technology using a balance of prebiotics, minerals and essential oils that work continuously in harmony to effectively keep you pHresh throughout the day without irritation. Our formula promotes the growth of healthy bacteria on your skin’s surface while attacking any gram negative or positive bacteria that causes body odor! We think this is super cool! Did you know our sticks are also 45% Fair Trade Certified? To learn more click here- https://www.fairtradecertified.org/

I went through a bunch of other natural deodorants before finding the Barely Sweet scent in store and deciding that Honestly PHresh works for me, but I'm sensitive to scents so was excited to try the Phree. I was looking forward to maybe a light shea butter scent at most. However, I am sad to report that because it has sage oil in it, it smells like sage, which is not nice coming off a body. When I get hot it starts to smell like cooking meat, which is not how I ever want to smell. It would even be marginally better with a hint of citrus, but right now it smells like I have a problem. So I'm back to the perfumey and definitely stronger than named Barely Sweet and hoping that their next unscented is TRULY unscented, or that they come out with a very light shea/vanilla (not fruity or herbal or woody or spicy) scent that fades into the background and/or combines with scents I actually wear intentionally.
I've been spending the last several years testing out natural deodorants and it's a real chore. I've dealt with it all; rashes from baking soda, irritation from added fragrances, sticky formulas and ones that just don't stop the stink! I tried Honestly Phresh about a year and a half ago after seeing it highly rated on the ThinkDirty app. Decided to order it and have been hooked ever since! It's the only true, fragrance free, sensitive skin deodorant I have found. You will need to reapply throughout the day if you are like me and sweat heavily. It is also a bit of a firmer solid than you will be used to but you don't have to apply a ton of product. I just hold it under my arm for a couple seconds and glide it right on.
I also took a shot and ordered their Holiday scent this season and I absolutely love it! I thought I might experience some irritation from the scent, but after a month, I've had zero issues. Do yourself a favor and give this a try!
I have yet to receive the product.
I like the texture of this deodorant and the fact that it actually smells like nothing. The only thing that is a bit annoying is that you have to let it warm up a bit before you can use it. Not really a big deal considering everything else is really great, but just want to let others know.
