I was so bummed because I really, really liked it. I even went as far as trying to trick my body by taking a break from it & then easing my way back to it. This 'trick' would work for the first day but then my body was back to telling me 'I don't think so," with a very loud & clear message. Two words: inflamed armpits. Yep, it's as pretty & painful as it sounds. My armpits would get red & itchy & hurt, almost swollen but I didn't smell. While I was trying to convince myself that red pits are no big deal, I'll use it anyway I had flashes of wearing tank tops & scaring others with my angry armpits. There had to be a better way. I tried other deodorants but where they were lacking baking soda they were also lacking in stink prevention. They didn't work. Then the universe sent a natural deodorant article into my facebook feed. I quickly perused the slide show options of deodorants I had already tried until I came upon this one, Meow Meow Tweet. The product is literally called Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream. I read the review (which I can't find now but if I do I will update it here) & ordered it immediately.
Remember, if you're happy with Truly's & don't suffer any sensitivity to baking soda, stick with it it's a great product there's nothing wrong with it. If you're like me, Meow Meow Tweet Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream is your remedy for a natural deodorant if you suffer from baking soda sensitivity!
