Myro Deodorant is a monthly subscription for a natural deodorant. The website states “no aluminum, parabens, phthalates, or talc to mess with your day. Only clean ingredients, barley powder to keep you dry, and essential oils that release scent over time, not all at once. “
I’m going to say upfront, I am not a fan. I was very disappointed in this product and did not feel it was effective. It’s important to note, I have already made the switch from regular deodorant and went through the “aluminum detox” (if you want more details, please see the note at the bottom of the post & leave comments if you have questions). Everyone has different body chemistry & this is just my personal experience with this. The product may work for others.
The idea itself is neat. You get a starter kit and get to choose your case color and scent of your deodorant stick.
The card explains about the product and their guarantee. You have the option to send back one opened deodorant pod & any unused ones. I only had the one and did not want to take the time to send it back.
The box explains how to put the pod into the case so it works correctly.
You have a choice of color on the case. I chose this darker greenish blue which is called Slate. The also have a bright blue (Royal), red (Flame), light green (Moss), & peachy color (Blush).
The deodorant comes in five scents and I chose Big Dipper (bergamot, lavender, & vetiver). They also have Solar Flare (orange, juniper, & sunflower), Chill Wave (cucumber, jasmine, & spearmint), Pillow Talk (violet leaf, ylang ylang, & wild amyris), & Cabin #5 (vetiver, patchouli, & geranium).
The deodorant itself smells good. It goes on very smooth and almost has a minty clean feel on your skin.
Here is the problem: I would notice randomly throughout the day that I smelled really bad. It could be an 20 minutes after I put it on or five hours later. I wasn’t working out or sweating when this happened, just everyday life – working in an office, shopping, doing laundry, etc. Instead of stopping odor, it felt like it put a light barrier over the odor and then odor would seep out. I do NOT have this odor with other deodorants. Maybe this product just did not work with my body chemistry.
So far on the natural deodorant front, i have used Native & Brandless and thought they were both effective & really liked both brands. Myro unfortunately, was not for me. I have just started using Dr. Teal’s and we will see how that goes. I have a few other brands I’ve already purchased to try as well. Eventually, I will do a side by side comparison of all of them.
Different products work for different people and even though this didn’t work for me, I will link their website below. This is not a personal link.
- FYI: Natural deodorant is different than regular deodorant because it does not stop sweating. You WILL smell worse for about a week or more after you switch because of your body detoxing from the aluminum in regular deodorants.
- I never feel it’s fair that a natural deodorant get a bad review if it’s the first time someone has used a product of that kind because of them not knowing about the detox period.
