Three months ago I reported that I had switched over to using The Rock, aka crystal deodorant. At the time I was quite pleased with its performance particularly since I have a history of issues with finding an anti-perspirant / deodorant that was effective.
I have always had problems with staining in the armpit region and have learned over the years never to wear white. So, it was with great excitement and pleasure that I reported how successful my initial experiments with the rock were.
But, what about summer usage? I figured if it was effective during the heat and sweat and stink of summer then surely it would be super effective during the cooler months of the year. As such, I'm here to report that for the last three months I have only used The Rock and have been very pleased with its performance. I only had some stinky problems once after working in the yard on a particularly sweat inducing day but it must have been somewhat of an unusual day because since then I have used it under much more sweaty conditions and haven't had any odor problems.
Since it doesn't act as an anti-perspirant, I'm sweating like I should be. Frankly since I've been using anti-perspirant since I was 12 I didn't know what to expect. On some days I had some underarm sweating issues, but since it's not clogged with chemical build-up, my shirts dried pretty quickly. And, I'm sure that it actually kept me cooler. Now, I'm not talking giant sweat rings or anything, just a little more dampness than usual.
Finally, and most importantly, I no longer have a permanent film or build-up or waxy irremovable patch on my shirts. In fact, I have even purchased a few white shirts since I no longer have to worry about yellow staining. That alone is worth a huge "holy crap"!
A number of you have written to me stating that you have had success and, even better, your spouse or husband had success with the crystal. I'm glad I'm not alone in witnessing the miracle that is The Rock.
Any other success stories (or failures) out there?
