SMELL - rating out of 10 5 9 9 10
SMELL - comment Didn't love the smell, wasn't overly fragrant and was a bit musty smelling to me A fresh, lime scented bar At first I wasn't sure of the smell, it grew on me and I love it I can smell the lime and eucalyptus. It smells fresh. It is subtle not overpowering and I absolutely love it
TEXTURE - rating out of 10 5 8 7 10
TEXTURE - comment The bar felt slightly crumbly and powdery. Didn't love how it felt Smooth, firm Too hard It is creamy without being sticky. Feels good
SLIDE - rating out of 10 2 8 4 8
SLIDE - comment Not great, I found it really hard to use, it pulled my underarm skin and seemed like not much was being applied to the skin with each stroke Creamy enough that it applies easily, with or without water Too hard, melting effect.  Felt like had to rub and rub and rub it over skin There's a little bit of drag as you move it across your skin. I'm happy to put up with that because it means there's no stickiness, no dry time required
BODY SMELL - rating out of 10 5 8 9 10
BODY SMELL - comment I could not smell this after using it A pleasant refreshing smell Loved it I was pleasantly surprised. Even after a 1 hour brisk walk there was no BO just the faint lime/eucalyptus smell. (I must admit I'm not a big perspirer though)
SKIN FEEL - rating out of 10 5 8 5 10
SKIN FEEL - comment No comment here, I felt no difference, other than having pulled skin Comfortable, not sticky or wet feeling Punished My skin feels silky and dry in a good way
GENERAL PERFORMANCE REFLECTIONS I really did not like this bar. I would not buy it. I felt like it was difficult to apply, it pulled at my skin, and to be honest I gave up with the bar after half a dozen tries This bar seems to do what it says it will do.  It is a deodorant and antiperspirant without the nasty chemicals. It is easy to apply as a stick, not messy like a cream and I love the refreshing lime fragrance. I would definitely recommend to people who want something different from the normal plastic packaged roll-on deodorants Love the smell and the idea.  I have used body bars like this.  This deodorant was very hard, did not melt into the skin, you needed to be quite aggressive with it.  My right armpit was fine but I have a stress rash under my left armpit.. first day I tried it I was in pain so never used it again on left side.  I did try on right a few times but gave up and went back to "Oh goodness sensitive "..  

Side note- I did use the bar where underwire bra line goes under breast, my bra smelt great and so did I
The two things that make it a winner for me is the scent and also the fact it's not wet and sticky. I will definitely keep using it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. I am lucky. I only need to apply it once in the morning and it lasts all day. If I had to find a negative it's that you have to touch it with your fingers, there's no wrapper around it to hold. However, I don't care too much about that. It wont stop me from buying it
ADVICE FOR USERS   Just swipe a few times across each underarm If you have rashes etc this may not be the bar for you
