How To Use

How To Use Essano Mandarin & Aloe Vera Natural Deodorant

Apply to clean, dry underarms. Reapply throughout the day for best results. Patch-test before use.

New to natural deodorants? Not sure how they work?

If you’re new to essano’s natural deodorants, your body might go through a readjustment phase, which takes up to 30 days for your body to adjust fully from aluminium-based deodorants and antiperspirants.

During this readjustment phase, you can sometimes experience an increase of odour-causing bacteria. But rest assured that this won’t last forever as it is just a part of the adjustment that happens when your pores are no longer blocked.

Once your body completed the readjustment phase, the bacteria and odour will subside and you can be confident you are using a product that is gentle yet effective.

We’re so confident it works, so we’re offering a money-back guarantee! More info here.

    - Fine Hair - Sensitive Skin

    This Essano natural deodorant has a nice citrus scent that seems strong at first but fades quickly so isn’t overpowering. It dries quickly & doesn’t leave a thick white residue like antiperspirants that I usually use but it also doesn’t give all-day protection. Maybe 8 hours on a quiet day but after housework, I was quite sweaty & by tea time smelled enough that I couldn’t reapply without a quick wash first.
    I feel like natural deodorants are not suited to my body because I have not yet found one that works all day, although I have not stuck out the entire 30 days they recommend to see a real difference.

    + PROS: Nice citrus scent No white residue
    - CONS: Doesn't work well on me No antiperspirant, only designed to reduce smell not stop sweat soaking through Needs reapplied throughout the day

    I desperately wanted to love this deodorant, in face value there was so much to be excited about. Aluminium free, no blocked pores got my hopes high as I struggle to find deodorant that doesn’t end up with itchy under arms.

    I can happily report by sensitive under arms throughly enjoyed this product – no itchy, no residue on clothing, no clogged pores and has a lovely scent.

    Sadly for me this is where it ended. I didn’t get the 8 hours of “protection” and found myself having to reapply this every 3-4hours. During exercise even applied immediately beforehand, I found myself smelling less than pleasant, which was a shame.

    I am not a big sweater but am used to having something provide odour protection all day. My normal deodorant provides much better odour relief during heavy exercise also.

    My take is if you have sensitive skin and are used to regular reapplying throughout the day then this is a winner. Sadly for me, while lots to love, I won’t be changing.

    + PROS: Aluminium free, no reaction to nasties. Pleasant scent. Nice product size. Didn’t leave residue
    - CONS: Didn’t provide the protection needed / as described. Needed to apply too often, every 3-4 hours.

    - Damaged Hair - Combination Skin

    I would not purchase this again. The mandarin smell was sickly and way too strong for my liking. The deodorant itself did not stop me from smelling like sweat after a few hours in the sun or some exercise. It does say you need to use for 30 days straight for it to work properly so maybe I need to give it more time – but so far it hasn’t worked for me.

    + PROS: Good price for natural deodorant The fact it is natural
    - CONS: The smell Doesn't seem to work yet

    - Curly Hair - Dry Skin

    At first smell I was hooked! The mandarin smell is gorgeous and so much nicer than other rollons! But sadly, that was the thing I liked most about the deodorant. I don’t sweat much under the arms on a daily basis as I can’t move around much or fast. Yet on a normal day I could actually smell my sweat a couple of hours after applying even with the lack of activity to create much sweat. I almost thought it emphasized the sweat smell, as the smell was more noticeable to even days where I don’t wear any deodorant at all.
    Was concerned if it smelt like that on a no activity day then it definitely wasn’t going to work for me on the days I do manage some activity like housework.

    + PROS: The smell is lovely. Feels more feminine because of the look and smell of the deodorant. Rolls on easily. Natural Product. Chemical and aluminium free.
    - CONS: It stayed feeling quite wet/sticky for awhile after application. It didn't perform well as a deodorant - masking the sweat smell or preventing sweat.

    - Fine Hair - Combination Skin

    I loved the fruity scent and the strength was fine for me in winter. Great to have a natural-based option that’s affordable. Not a product I could use in warmer weather as it wouldn’t be strong enough to cope with my sweat in the heat.

    + PROS: Fine for cooler weather Natural Lovely fragrance
    - CONS: Definitely not summer-strength

    This product has the most beautiful scent and I enjoyed using it. It applied effortlessly. I use natural based deodorants and so didnt have many problems with this, just reapplied every so often.
    The packaging is nice and keeps in style of the other skin care line.
    It is NZ made and the company has a focus on using natural products as well as not testing on animals.

    + PROS: -Nice smell - easy to apply - NZ made - Company uses a lot of natural ingredients in their products - No testing on animals

    - Coloured Hair - Normal Skin

    I love the smell, I feel clean and fresh for the full 8 hours it states, did feel the need to reapply at school pickup time.

    + PROS: Fresh scent, immediate effect. Does what it says.
    - CONS: Plastic container and a bit bulky for going in the handbag
