Hm. I wore this through an average work day today. As far as odor control, this really is not bad. Not quite as good as a conventional deodorant/antiperspirant, in my opinion. Your satisfaction with it, odor-wise, may well depend on the amount of stress you have.
As far as wetness, this product doesn't claim to be an antiperspirant, only a deodorant. So if you're the kind of person who gets sweaty, this is not for you.
Using it is kind of weird. Not unpleasant, just different. You are to moisten the crystal with water prior to applying it. I read elsewhere on the Net you could forego drying your armpits after showering, and just use the residual moisture to moisten the crystal for you, so that's what I did.
It does sting a tiny bit if you've just shaven. Otherwise, it's similar to using a roll-on, i.e., the product combined with water takes a minute to dry. I don't particularly care for that, but would put up with it, had this product equaled my regular deodorant in performance.
It's not a great quest for me, finding a non-aluminum underarm product, yet it would be nice to find one that manages wetness, and has comparable odor protection. For me, this is not it.
P.S. They do sell this in sample form, I believe it's $2 and change.
