I don't know about you, but I have been through my fair share of deodorants. It seems I will use one and after a few months, it doesn't work anymore and doesn't keep me dry. There are the deodorants that say they go on clear and won't get any white residue on your clothes - wrong! So, when I was given the opportunity to try a new deodorant, I was happy, though to be quite honest, I was a little skeptical of Crystal Body Deodorant as I have always used solid deodorant and this was liquid roll-on. I have tried liquid roll-on deodorant before and it was icky and sticky and I didn't like it at all.

After using this deodorant, I like it. Yes, when it went on it was wet and cold, though it dried within seconds and wasn't sticky and lasted all day. It had a deodorizing smell that was aromatic (lavender) and left me dry and non-smelly all day (basically, to put it in laymans terms - it lasted all day). And, there was no white residue on my clothes! Sha-wing!

To all you die-hard CVSers, use your ECB (Extra Card Bucks) to purchase Crystal Body Deodorant products.  I guarantee you will love it and thank me for telling you about this awesome deodorant.

If I was not given the opportunity to try this product, I would never even think to purchase it for two main reasons: 1) I have never heard of it, and 2) I did not have a coupon for it. I could glance at it on the shelf and not even give it a second thought. I am very glad I tried it, because I now will use Crystal Deodorant. Even if I don't have a coupon, which if you know me, you know that I normally do not buy anything without a coupon, so this must really work for me to buy without the savings. However, if I am going to spend money on a product that works - that to me is more savings than having a coupon and paying next to nothing for an item, especially if you have to re-apply the deodorant that you got next to nothing. Wake up in the morning, take your shower, apply Crystal Body Deodorant and be done with it. It truly lasts all day long!

Disclosure:  Through my membership with One2One Network, I was provided with Crystal Body Deodorant products to help abide in my review.  By receiving these products, it did not entice my opinion to write a favorable post.  I tried the product and truly loved it.  I also was entered into a drawing to win a gift card.
