Juicy chemistry damask rose, sea buckthorn and jasmine deodorant is one my recent purchases from the brand. I have reviewed similar products from brands like Vilvah and Burst of happyness before. Here are the links if you haven’t already read the reviews:
On the same lines, JC has a range of 3 deodorant variants, out of which I chose the rose one.
To all those who are new to natural deodorants, these are not anti-perspirants, and hence doesn’t hamper the biological toxin removal process. It merely imparts fragrance to the under arms skin and thereby prevents the foul sweat smell. Also unlike the synthetic deodorants, it contains no toxins and generally causes no irritation to the skin (unless you have any issues with the natural ingredients or essential oils used). It also prevents skin darkening which is a general side effect of synthetic deos.

My take on the product
Like all other products from the brand, the Juicy chemistry deodorant stick also has an amazing blend of essential oils, which gives it a sweet fragrance, predominantly of jasmine. To compare, the Vilvah deo had a stronger rose fragrance which used to linger longer on skin as well.
The packaging is eco friendly card board one with a push up applicator. As you use up the product, it can be slightly pushed up from the bottom to use.
The consistency is what I love the most. The Vilvah deo had a very creamy consistency (the packaging changed from plastic to similar cardboard package now. So not sure if formula also changed). So there was no control of how much you apply. Sometimes in high humidity and warm temperatures, you end up applying more than required.
But with Juicy chemistry deo, the consistency is just creamy enough to apply without any tug but not so creamy that you end up applying more.
I stay in a hot and humid climate, and hence I need to reapply the deo every 3-4 hours on days with excess sweating. There is no sticky feel on the skin and this cream deodorant doesn’t leave any cast on the skin.
Comparatively, the Vilvah deo used to hold up fragrance longer than this. But if you are sensitive to strong fragrance you might prefer the JC variant. Also I prefer the consistency of JC deo to Vilvah one.
Since the product is not so soft, you end up using just the right quantity and hence I am sure this will last me long. It is compact, light weight and hence travel friendly.
I would like to try the other deodorant variants from Juicy chemistry before I find a favourite for repurchase.
A note to JC: I have come across the wrong product content being printed in the JC packages at times. For eg, in the Directions to use section of this product, they have also mentioned the usage directions of the scrub.
