Barely There Natural Deodorant Spray
Marcela Desverney (West Milford, US)
It Didn’t Work

It arrived very well packaged and communication throughout the delivery was excellent. The scent is pleasant and not overpowering. Unfortunately the product did not work for me. It’s disappointing, especially for the price & cost of shipping to the US. I was really hoping it would work, because I’ve researched and tried so many natural deodorants, with no success. I tried it after showering at night, then reapplied in the morning, but literally could smell the funk coming through in a very short period of time without much exertion. It also stung a bit after shaving, which would’ve been a non-issue for me had it worked. I gave it several tries in different scenarios, with no luck. Too bad, I wish this woman-owned company well and very happy for those that have gotten positive results with the product.

We’re sorry to hear our natural deodorant didn’t work for you. Someone from customer service will reach out to you.

Already seeing a difference!

I don’t usually see an immediate difference when trying new products, but after a short time I’m already noticing a difference in my skin’s tone and tightness! Can’t wait to try the moisturizer next! I’m already eyeing my next purchase.

So happy to hear that this works for you and you’re already noticing the benefits! We think you’ll love our new moisturizer just as much. Thanks for your review.

Smooth Skin Set
Robyn Reichert (Lake Worth, US)
Smells so good!

Love the snooth skin set, smells like a spa and makes your skin feel so smooth. A spa after your shower everytime, and the smell stays with you. so refreshing and love that it is made clean!

Thanks for your 5 star review of our Smooth Skin Set, Robyn. We're so pleased to hear you're loving our Bamboo Lemongrass Foaming Body Polish and Shea Body Butter as much as we do! And we agree, it's like a spa day everyday!

Daily Infusion Moisturizer
Marianne Horne (Vancouver, CA)
Daily Moisture

Definitely thicker and not as light to apply, however still leaves skin non greasy and works great for me. I prefer the thicker consistency.

Thanks for your positive review, Marianne! So happy to hear that you're enjoying using our reformulated Daily Infusion. The thicker consistency comes from customer feedback, asking for a product that is more emollient, which this one is. Lots of ingredients to help maintain your skin's barrier and keep it happy. Important all year, and especially as we head into the cooler, drier months.

Tranquil Moment Natural Deodorant Spray
Diane Simonick (Decatur, US)
Tranquil Moments Lavender Deodorant

I have been using "natural" deodorants for a while and have read good things about this one. I tried it and smelled like pure sweat in a couple of hours. I have tried it on several days and always the same results. I was very disappointed.

We’re sorry to hear our natural deodorant didn’t work out for you. Someone from customer service will reach out to you.

Barely There was unfortunately too there bc of my sensitivities.

I had wanted to love this but I have vasomotor rhinitis and lung issues and highly sensitive to smells and mists. Unfortunately the Barely There smell was too strong for me. Perhaps I am too sensitive now to essential oils. Apothekari was very kind and understanding and refunded my purchase. Could be better for others without major sensitivities.

It’s our top selling scent and we’re so sorry it didn’t work out for you. Someone from customer service will reach out to you.

Hi Dd,

As we haven't heard back from you, we have credited you back the cost of the deodorant. Please let us know if we can help further.

Barely There Natural Deodorant Spray
LoveBlack (Castle Rock, US)
Updated Review

I believe products products should be effective but also safe. My original review mentioned my search for zinc-free deodorant, but that search was actually zinc-free suntan lotion. In deodorant, I was looking for aluminum-free — which Apothekari Barely There is!

It’s been about a month now and Apothekari Barely There continues to work well with no perfume-y odor. It keeps me feeling fresh all day long. I really couldn’t be happier!

Thanks for clarifying. Yes, our Natural Deodorant Sprays are aluminum-free and baking soda-free! (They're also zinc-free )

We’re so happy to hear our Barely There deodorant continues to work well for you!

Awesome deodorant!

I have been looking for a zinc-free deodorant for years. Tried name brand ones that wore off after 2 hours. This one (barely there) works and lasts. Finally, a real alternative! So happy! Will be buying more in the future.

Thanks so much for your 5 star review! We're thrilled to hear our Barely There Natural Deodorant Spray is working well for you. We look forward to receiving your next order!

Barely There Natural Deodorant Spray
Debrah Roemisch (Fort Wayne, US)
works but burns

It does work better than most natural deodorants-still prefer one with potassium alum in it (which I am trying to get away from), but I can't use if I have shaved my underarms--it burns like crazy, and since I usually shave every other day, I can only use on the opposite day, and I do have to reapply it, which being a spray is useful. I like the light citrus scent also, I do not like any fake fragrance or heavy essential oils.

We're happy to hear that our deodorant works for you! Sorry to hear about the burning, though. We have a couple of suggestions to help alleviate this:
1. Try waiting about 30 minutes after stepping out of the shower. It's not only the shaving that can make your skin sensitive, but washing with soap as well. Waiting helps for many people.
2. If waiting doesn't work, try applying a soothing moisturizer first. It sounds counter-intuitive, but it can help. One with aloe vera gel is a good one to try.
Hope this helps and let us know how it works out for you.

Neroli Rose Natural Deodorant Roll-On
Jenny W (Nashville, US)
Alison Gary with Wardrobe Oxygen was RIGHT about this deodorant

I, too, found Apothekari from reading a blog of Alison Gary with Wardrobe Oxygen. I've been using Neroli Rose Natural Deodorant for about 2 weeks now. I was shocked by the smell of the product initially as the "Rose" led me to think it would smell like a rose from the garden. It did not! I was a little skeptical but applied it anyway. From my point of view, this product is simply amazing. No body odor or deodorant odor. I love this product and have already recommended it to someone else looking for an effective deodorant. Thank you, Apothekari!

Thank YOU, Jenny (and Alison)! Reviews like yours make our day so we're thrilled to hear you're loving our Natural Deodorant Roll-On! And thanks for recommending us to someone else, too. We really appreciate it.

I have tried SO many natural deodorants

Holy crap. This is amazing. The Barely There scent is perfect. Really almost like nothing. I finally found a natural deodorant that I love. I will be buying so many more bottles so I never run out. This is legit. I am STINKY. ONE SPRAY IN THE MORNING LASTS ME 24 HOURS. I always thought people that said a natural deodorant could last them more than a few hours were lying. I could never. Even conventional deodorant honestly doesn't work great for me. The only thing that has ever worked is Clinical strength antiperspirant. But I don't want to wear antiperspirant any more. Thank you so much for making this wonderful, beautiful, safe, effective product! Lifetime fan now for sure.

Thanks for your glowing review, NeLisa.

So much passion goes into the development and production of our products and so we’re thrilled to hear that our deodorant works so well for you. It's the same kind of feedback we received when we were testing out the formulation.

This is the kind of thing that makes us get up every day. Thanks for sharing your experience with Apothekari.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

Beautiful radiant skin

I'm very happy to have discovered the Glow Getter and Advanced Renewal serum. These two serums one for the morning and the other for the evening just works beautifully on my skin.
I have sensitive skin and I was able to use both products every day without any irritations, and gives great results. Everyone knows that retinoids and vitamin c are indispensable in skin care at any age but especially for mature skin. I'm so happy to have discovered these serums, as retinal serums are still hard to come by and I have never seen a pure vitamin c serum this fresh. Not to mention, all of the other great ingredients in both of the serums. I highly recommend them!

Miyako Galluzzi. Thank you for your review of our Radiant Skin Set. We're thrilled to hear you're happy with our serums and they're working so well for your sensitive skin!

Kind regards,
Joanne
Customer Service

Very disappointed.

This company has great customer service! I wouldn't be hesitant to try them again. I did not like the scent of the deodorant and they refunded me the full purchase price. I'm only out shipping costs now. My original review is below.

I really wanted to love this deodorant. But the scent is horrible! And I could smell it all day. Seriously I think the smell was awful and I kept thinking I was stinking and then would realize that it was just the way the deodorant smelled! Definitely would not recommend. I was hoping with the bogo offer I would get two different scents to try but I ended up with two of the grapefruit ginger ones, which I will never use. They smell nothing like grapefruit and very strongly of ginger.

Shontel Pires. So sorry that this didn’t work out for you we have sent you an email to help resolve things for you.

Lavender Bergamot Natural Deodorant Roll-On
Stephaney Cooper (Richmond, US)
If I could give this a zero I would

I was very hopeful about this product being aluminum free. Personally I think the product smells terrible and causes all of your clothing to have the same order. I will not be reordering this product. The product is overpriced, the bottle is tiny and not a solid but a liquid.

Smells good.

The deoderant smells wonderful and their customer service was top notch when I had an inquiry.

Neroli Rose Natural Deodorant Roll-On
Lara sproul (Petaluma, US)
Thanks to Wardrobe Oxygen

I read a blog by Alison Gary where she reviewed several natural deodorants over a few years. I give all my gratitude to her for highlighting her success with Apothekari natural deodorant. I was hesitant due to the price and waited to try it, however after all my other experimental deodorants eventually stopped working- a strange phenomenon- some start off working good but then there is an immunity I get and my odor returns. So I bit the bullet and bought neroli rose Apothikari and it has been a huge success. It works in warm weather over 90 degrees and my stinky pits do not stink. I may have some perspiration but not a significant amount. I am a total fan! One tip budget your refill orders if you live in USA due to customs I assume. Great job team Apothikari!! Can’t wait ti try the other scents. Love neroli rose. Subtle pretty and fresh.

I used this deodorant during a 115 degree heatwave and it works!

Living in Arizona, I have searched for years for a natural deodorant that works. I tried Apothekari during a 115 degree heatwave and it works!

My search is over, I’m hooked for life!

AHA-Mazing Clean Gel Cleanser
Cathy (Vancouver, CA)
Incredible facial cleanser

A clean, chemical-free cleansing gel that’s “Amazing”, it leaves your skin super clean without drying it out. I’ve been using it for over 4 years now and it is truly a fantastic product especially with mature skin. You only need to use a small amount as it cleans and moisturizing at the same time. I have recommended it to many of my friends and they love this product!

So happy I found this moisturizer!

I have dry skin and this moisturizer does the trick. No heavy perfume which irritates my skin.

Becca V (Brantford, CA)
Amazing odour protection

This deodorant is great, it works when most retail options don't. As mentioned in previous reviews, the scent is strong at first but if you apply under your garment you'll be fine! Still a beautiful scent. just don't strongly inhale when applying.

Wonderful!

I’ve been using this retinol product and vitamin C for around two years now and love them both. My skin looks great and I hardly feel the need to wear makeup to cover anything. It’s also good to support a local business. I have emailed Sharmani with questions and she always gets back to me with an answer. Customer service overall is fantastic.

Kristina (Vancouver, CA)
Eye opening product!

Having long since given up on eye creams because they were too greasy and ineffective, I decided to try this serum and boy, what a difference! First, I loved the non-greasy, almost watery texture of the product. It was easy to apply and suitable for use under makeup as it was absorbed almost instantly, leaving no greasy film behind. Second, the subtle scent smelled mildly of tea - pleasant, non-medicinal and not perfume-y. And, finally, the results - the look of fine lines were diminished and the skin looked brighter and firmer. A winner all around!

Trying another scent

I don’t know if it’s this particular scent but It was not the best on me. Customer service was fantastic and is sending me a different one to try. I’ve heard wonderful things about this company so I am hoping it’s just this scent that wasn’t working.

Dear Lisa,

We’re sorry to hear you are not satisfied with our Grapefruit Ginger deodorant. We've checked our records and are unable to locate your email. Someone from our customer service team will be in touch to help resolve this issue.
