Life Changing!

Dr Klingman,
You don’t know how important your work is!! There has GOT to be a way to let more people know about this product. It is literally saving my life.  I have had bromhidrosis since I was in elementary school. I have been bullied my ENTIRE life. My thoughts and attempts at suicide began at 14. 
I am now a disabled vet, who has lived my ENTIRE life with a fear of getting close to people… physically, and emotionally.  
I’ve had partial apocrine removal, I’ve tried and failed aluminum based products, I’ve done salicylic acid externally to each axilla, isopropyl alcohol, vinegar. I prayed to God to either cure me or take me out of my misery. 
Though I’ve always been grossly disappointed, I continued to search for solutions.  I’ve spent countless dollars, only for products to immediately fail.  Everyone has always assumed I simply don’t practice good hygiene, and I actually shower more than most people I know.
I came across Lume online. I didn’t believe it would work, but I had to try.
Doctor… for the first day in my adult life, I am experiencing odor free days. I cannot BELIEVE the efficacy of this product.  
My only fear now is that it is EVER discontinued.
I wanted to personally thank you, for saving me nights full of tears. My coworkers have already judged me, but hopefully over time, their perception of me will change.
Thank you SOOOO much. I will be a life long user, and my daughter will be as well.
Please never underestimate the change you’re making in people’s lives.
SINCERELY and with Love, 
K.S. / Florida
Totally Amazing

This is by far a life-changing product. I’m 37 years old and this is the first deodorant that has ever worked for me. I’ve tried the best of the best and nothing has ever worked like Lume does. No more sweat and odor. I am so thankful for this product and I feel confident in anything I wear now. I give it a million stars!!!

The most amazing product ever!

For many years I have been challenged with finding deodorants that do not cause a nasty reaction with my skin. When I did find something, there were always tradeoffs or other reactions that I would have to deal with. In addition, I have always had to deal with skin tags under the arms because of the way my body reacted to the chemical in the deodorants, so I was constantly having to cut them off to avoid them getting too big.

Since I bought and tried Lume, I have had absolutely ZERO reactions and NO side effects. I love the way it feels and smells.
And one of the most amazing side effects of this product is that it has nearly eliminated all the skin tags and bumps under my arms! At first, I thought it was just my imagination, but then I ran out and did not purchase any more for about a month, and the bumps and skin tags started coming back. I am ordering four underarm sticks so that I can keep them in all my suitcases and bathrooms! I will not be without this product again!!!!!!!!!

I never want to be without my Lume!

My Lume purchase was an impulse buy after seeing it on Instagram, but I am SO happy I gave it a try. I've never really had a problem with BO using commercial deodorant/antiperspirant. However, I've always wanted to smell fresher in other areas too -- yet didn't really want to risk using my deodorant in sensitive areas.

I live in the South, where it's hot and very humid much of the year. It is nearly impossible to feel or smell fresh while sweating buckets! My biggest issue was near my genitals; the crease where my legs meet my abdomen. My vagina was clean & didn't smell, but for some reason, I was sweating a ridiculous amount near it, and it stunk. I would even end up with irritation from all the sweat. Powder did very little. I wore cotton panties since they're supposed to be more breathable, but that didn't seem to help. I was always self-conscious about smelling, even around my husband.

The very first day I tried Lume, I was really impressed. I had NO smell all day, even after being outside in the heat. I did checks throughout the day, sure that I'd end up smelling a little, but even in close contact, I didn't smell at all.

The deodorant doesn't have a strong scent to me. It smells lightly like lavender (which I'm not typically a huge fan of, but I don't mind the smell of Lume), and it disappears right after I put it on. If I do a smell check, I don't smell like anything. Really. No cover up scent, no BO.

I'm still stink-free, and I even feel like I'm sweating less. I don't get the irritation I used to, either. Lume has had such a positive effect on my life and my self-esteem. I never want to be without it again!


This is the only natural deodorant that works for me! I have been using it for a month and I am so happy that I purchased it. I haven’t broken out or gotten dark skin from having burnt/irritated skin like I’ve experienced in the past from other deodorants containing baking soda. I’m very sensitive and sweat a lot just to give you better perspective. My trouble/smelly area are between my breast and this works pretty good. Better on days where it’s not so hot. I’ve also tried this product on my private parts as well and it works well! I apply this deodorant pretty much everyday because I’m a heavy prespirator (38 yo). I’ve skipped applying under my arms maybe twice and it wasn’t too hot outside. I wanted to see if this would work for me and it did! By the way, I’m a pescatarian.

Best Deodorant Ever!!!

I am a registered nurse and have been searching for a non-toxic underarm deodorant for quite some time. I've tried many products and was truly about to resign myself to having to use chemical laden products to stay dry and fresh-smelling. Luckily, I stumbled across Lume and am so impressed by this product. Lume is very gentle but effective!!! It does not cause me to break out in the awful red and itchy rashes other natural deodorants caused. I smell clean all day and have had no issues with rash or irritation. Thank you for a safe and effective product. I absolutely love Lume- please do not ever stop making it.


I made the switch to natural deodorants about two years ago. I developed a sensitivity to the baking soda in a lot of them, and struggled to find something that actually works! Then I stumbled across Lume and wow! It works great without reapplying and even after working out! This stuff is fantastic and I'm sold!!

It works

I really like the way this works. It doesn’t take days or weeks to work like others I’ve tried. I have some pretty strong armpit odor so I just expected it to fail. I will say that they should include the Fox it info for the pump in case it arrives and doesn’t work like mine did. It does not smell like Fruit Loops, not even close. It has a hint of lavender. A fruity scent would have been great. The click up deodorant doesn’t travel well, mine leaked out into the lid but I’m still using it. If my pump wasn’t kinda broken, it had a better scent, and it hadn’t all leaked into the left d I would have given it 5 stars.

Lume Response
Thank you for sharing your Lume experience and rating the cream itself 5 out of 5! That is the most important part. We are coming out with an unscented version very soon! We realize lavender and clary sage may not be for everyone. The airless pump, like all airless pumps can lose it's prime as the product settles away from the cap during transport. Including the instructions is a good suggestion. We are sorry you had to reprime yours. We are actively working to resolve the leaking issue when tipped on it's side in the heat. That shouldn't be a problem moving forward.

Lume to the rescue!

Lume..where have you been all of my life? Finally an answer to an embarrassing problem that so many women deal with every day! I am no longer worried about odors anywhere on my body after being active out in the summer heat of the East Coast! Thank you so much for recognizing the need and developing such a great product!

Best deodorant ever!

I knew I loved this stuff, but I didn't realize how much until I ran out! I had to go back to regular deodorant for a week and it seemed like I could smell a faint trace of body odor only 30 minutes later. Not so with Lume. I could put it on one morning, get up the next day and work out and still have no smell. I definitely will make sure I don't run out again.


This is the best ever!! A safe product that actually works!

Nothing else works like this!

I cannot believe how well this product works! I had a system that i had worked out over time to deal with body odor. I have always had a problem with under arm odor, no matter what i had tried. I have such sensitive skin that everything gives me a rash. Eventually, i worked out a layering system that involved 4 different products. It worked the best so far, but it was not perfect by any means, and it certainly did not last 24 hours! And i still always had a rash. I tried the Lume deodorant with much skepticism as so many products claim to work so well, and in the end, fail. I simply cannot believe how well this product works! I first tried it over a couple of days when I didn't work. I only used this product and nothing else. I lived normal, crazy life and even did workouts. No smell! Shocked, i took a leap of faith and used it when I went to work. I work in a high volume restaurant. I worked a very busy, very long shift that was full of lifting, pushing, pulling, running, cooking, and SWEATING! I was so tired, i didn't even take a shower when I got home and just went to bed. In the morning when i woke up? NOTHING! No smell at all! I was shocked. With my previous method, that would never happen. This product WORKS!! I am a convert! Now, to try it on my stinky children! Thank you for doing the hard work to invent this product. I never thought there would ever be something that would actually work all the way. This does. Thank you!

Best Aluminum Free Deodorant Available!

Having tried everything out there, Schmidt’s Natural, Green Tidings, Primal Pit Paste, Lavallin and countless others, this stuff works ten times better and is rash free! Baking soda and I don’t get along and every other deodorant I tried without it failed me miserably. Finally, have my answer. Love this product.

I recently tried a baking soda based “natural” deodorant and it felt (and looked) like someone had taken a flame thrower to my armpits! I broke out in a painful rash that took over a week to heal from. In contrast, Lume is amazing! It doesn’t irritate and it performs exactly as advertised. HIGHLY recommended.

Joan D.

I LOVE your product!!! I was having a terrible issue with an oily type sweat, along with a horrible "old lady" odor in my cleavage and under my breasts. This was an every day occurrence. I would shower in the morning and by evening I could smell myself whenever I would move my arms. I have been so self conscience about it, worrying that others could smell it too.

I have tried scented, corn starch powders but that did nothing. I made several attempts at using my regular deodorant but after a couple days, the areas would be very itching and irritated.

Since I started using your deodorant, I may still get the oily sweat but NO MORE ODOR. I am so relieved. You have an awesome product!

It really works!

I have tried ALL kinds of aluminum free, natural deodorants, including Tom's, PiperWai from shark tank (at the recommendation of a friend.), and one from France. Piper smells great initially, but I end up with a lot more odor, AND irritation from it. Plus, it's a pain to put apply. Lume is pretty much unscented, and it works for DAYS! It's easy to put on, and it doesn't explode in my luggage when I fly. I've ended up reordering. ONE DOWNSIDE - the airless pump didn't work right, and I'd suggest sticking to the stick.

It sounds dramatic, but this product has changed my life. I used to reapply deodorant several times a day and sometimes get rashes because of whatever they contained (I’ve tried almost all major and non-major brands). I apply this product as directed and it works! I smell good, or like nothing at all, ALL DAY! The scent is pleasant but not overpowering and one container lasts quite awhile. I love Lumē.

Follow the directions

I’m hooked, but I wasn’t at first. For me, the detox/priming period was essential. I still smelled bad for at least a week after starting this stuff. But now, I just smell like skin. It’s sort of weird to raise my arm and not smell a perfumed scent. I can’t go 48 hours, though. I need to reapply at the end of the day if I’m doing anything in the evening. I’ve been using it for only a couple of weeks, so maybe that will get better. Even if it doesn’t, I’ll definitely keep using it because I LOVE LOVE LOVE that it doesn’t stain my white shirts! (It did at first, when I was “detoxing” from traditional deodorant.)

Lume Response
Everybody is different and transitions into Lume more or less quickly depending on the the products you were using before Lume and also genetically how many and what kind of sweat you produce. Be very mindful of your clothing. Even under the best of circumstances, polyester, modal, spandex, lycra etc accelerates the odor reaction in clothing. Older wax and aluminum based products bind in fabrics and sometimes are impossible to ever wash out. The enzyme detergents we talk about in "Getting Started" can help improve the resistant BO bound in older articles of clothing. The longer you use Lume, the better it gets. Just be aware of the fabrics you are wearing.

I am 41 years old and have dealt with stinky BO for as long as I can remember. I have tried every deodorant out there with and without aluminum and let me tell you...not only are my armpits baby smooth and free of rash and irritation but most importantly I DON'T SMELL! I honestly walk around proudly telling people about this fantastic product. I shower at night and apply before bed and even on the hottest days or days when I workout I don't smell at all...it's amazing. Thank you, Lume!

works really well

This deodorant is incredible! The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is how wet it is. It bothers me but its not the worst thing. I wouldnt let it stop you from buying it if you're looking for a new deodorant.

Lume Response
Thank you for joining in on the conversation! We are glad to hear Lume is working so well for you and if you are finding it's not drying quickly for you, perhaps you are applying too much. Try a tad less and rub in in until just clear. That should do the trick!


Luv this product!!

This deodorant is awesome!! I use to be self conscious about sweating in the summer because I sweat so badly in places other than my underarms. This product took that stress away and I feel so much more comfortable now that the stress of stench is GONE! I will tell everyone I know about this product, it’s been a life saver! I will never stop buying this stuff!

Game. Changer.

This ish is AMAZING!!! I’ve been looking for a cruelty free deo with no luck. Everything I’ve tried breaks my armpits out into a rash less than 12 hours after applying. But not Lume!!!!! And this works 1000000x better than ANY crunchy deo I’ve tried!! Y’all, I do not stink at all!! And I am such a sweaty person!!
I love the smell!
My only complaint with the propel is that some product escaped out and dried in the cap during shipment. But hey, the product is still usable and it’s freaking amazing.
I honestly don’t think I’ll ever use any other deo.
Thanks a million Lume!!!!

After my two “doubting Thomas” tests, I am now a true believer!

I’ve purchased a Propel dispenser for each of my siblings and 87-year-old mother. Each of them are now fans.

Next up? A pile of nephews and nieces, ranging in age from 17 up to 42 will get Lume Propel to try. It’s amazing to hear the family feedback from the oldest, compared to those that are going through life’s changes right now. I can assure you this very extroverted family will be spreading the good news about Lume Deodorant.

No more compromise here!

After one application I can tell you I am continuing to purchase this product! It is real deal! I am no longer putting up with odor just because my other deodorant was aluminum free. No more compromise here!

How is this possible?

This. Actually. Works. How is it 2018 and not a single deodorant on the market- especially not the natural ones - actually works? What magic voodoo is in this stuff that it literally makes you smell-less? Color me amazed. I’m a lifer unless somehow it stops working and I sure hope that’s not the case! Can’t wait for the unscented version and maybe one day some new scents? My request is coconut pineapple! ☺️


Having used almost every deodorant on the market and 2 different prescriptions I finally found a deodorant that works! My husband is traditionally a skeptic of the "natural/crunchy" products I use. He doesn't feel they work as well. A few weeks into using my Lume deodorant and he's a believer. After a long day of sweating and baking I was cutting his hair when he said "Wow, that stuff really works. You don't even stink after sweating all day in the kitchen" He then asked me to order some for my teenage boy, hoping it'll help with his foot odor. I'll keep you posted on the effectiveness to cure teenage boy odors!

Finally! A Natural Deodorant That Works!!!

I have tried every natural deodorant I have ever come across in hopes I would finally find the one that works and doesn't cause a rash in my armpit. Lume is it! It controls odor better than even traditional deodorants have for me, and it has actually improved the condition of my underarm skin. I bought the pump to use when I travel because it's consistency is more like a lotion so the stick will leak when on its side. Small price to pay for such a great product.


My husband and I have tried so many different deodorants and nothing has come close to working as well as Lume. I am so very pleased with this product and have told so many of my friends about it. It truly is amazing!

Beyond thrilled!

I was hesitant to try another safe deodorant as I have wasted so much money on products that didn’t work! I am also very sensitive to smell. I am happy to report that Lume Deodorant is amazing!!!! It honestly works for the full 48 hours and the slight smell at initially applying, quickly dissipates. I am so happy with this product that I am now buying three to give to my teenage kids.

Not Impressed

I've tried so many natural deodorants to fight the sweat and smell of my pits and had high hopes for this one when I purchased it. Unfortunately it's not working out as planned. Within just a few hours of applying (rubbing in as directed) I smell and not in a good way, I've had to reapply but that still does nothing for me. The only positive is it helps with sweat "down there". I wish it had worked, I'll be traveling the men's deodorant section and keeping my fingers crossed that works for me.

Lume Response
Lume does not control sweat. Only products that contain aluminum can make that claim. If you are noticing odor within a few hours of application, it is most likely your clothing. Wax and oil based products whether they contain aluminum or not, bind to man made fibers,like in scrubs for instance, and hold on to BO that is very difficult to wash out. You are then left with a BO reminder each time you wear those articles of clothing. Be sure to check out "Getting Started" on our website and watch the two quick videos, so you know you are applying correctly (rubbing in) and more importantly in your case, prepping your clothes. Moving forward, Lume is water based so it washes out of clothing without leaving a residue behind. Lume is clinically proven to provide 48 hours of odor control and 100% of the testers in the study acheived that, but we controlled for 100% cotton, new, laundered tops. Fibers to that always lead to BO are polyester, spandex, lycra...think anyting with a stretch to it. I hope that helps! 🙂

Changed my Life!!!!

And I really mean that. I have been embarrassed by odor for years. I thought it was something I had to live with. I work out often and really noticed it after. Not now! I can’t tell you how much I love this stuff and will never be without it. Buy it!!!

Cannot do the smell

Tried this 3 times and could not tolerate the smell it was worse than my stink. Maybe an unsecured version?

Feeling Fresh!

I’m on day 4 of using Lume and I can’t say enough about it! It’s a whole new way of keeping myself feeling fresh! Finally, a deodorant I don’t have to reapply!

Thank you Lume! 🙂

Finally Something That Works!

I am on day 5 of the priming stage and absolutely cannot believe how good this stuff is working! I work in a very humid environment and can get quite smelly! Since I started using Lume, I haven’t noticed ANY body odor! NONE! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

What Sorcery Is This?

I sweat like a normal human but can’t seem to get the odor out. Most deodorants block your sweat pores (which is helpful for those who sweat profusely or have a medical condition), but my concern was always the odor which is just masked by fragrance. The residue was also a problem for me. Since I saw an ad for Lume on Instagram, I thought let me try it, but I’m probably another sucker who will follow any fad and waste money on it. I was so wrong. I followed the instructions and primed. I loved the delivery method via the airless pump, and how it’s just like a lotion. So I applied everywhere that I wanted to smell better. Then waited. Then sniffed...and sniffed. Is it really gone? Is my nose broken? I smell nothing. No odor. Maybe a slight water scent, but that’s it, it’s MY normal scent. Zero. Zilch. Nada. What magic is this? It really works, haven’t smelled like anything offensive at all in weeks. It does what it promises, and I am a customer for life. I am torn between telling people how amazing Lumē is, or keeping it as my secret locked in a vault forever. Either way, I’m a loyal customer forever. Looking forward to the unscented and travel sizes. Thanks, Lumē!


WOW. I’ve been using Tom’s of Maine for over a decade because it’s the ONLY deodorant that doesn’t give me a rash. Baking soda immediately irritates my skin, and EVERY other natural deodorant I’ve tried leaves me with a painful, itchy, awful rash in two days. I’m also really smelly for a woman, having to reapply the Tom’s three times per day. The first day I used this, I showered as normal, let my pita dry (they were already a little smelly, even though I’d just showered!), and used alcohol wipes to cleanse my pits. Applied a healthy amount of Lume to a wide area under my arms. No odor whatsoever, even after being outside and sweating in the heat. Next morning? Only very slight, not unpleasant odor. Showered again. Repeated the process minus the alcohol wipes. I don’t know what to say....I’m at a loss for words. This is a miracle product. Lavilin cream gives me hard painful lumps under my arms, and every other deodorant makes me feel like I’m on fire AND only increases odor! This is such an incredible product. Please never change it. Please! 🙂


I have been using clinical strength deodorant for years, but I tried Lumē this week and will never go back. I am living in southern India right now, and the heat here is something else. But even after sweating it up yesterday and not showering, I am still fresh in the pits and down south today. And the smells down south are completely gone! No more washing jeans after each wear. No need! This stuff amazes me. And the cost is really not as high as it seems. You get more uses out of this, so it is really comparable to several sticks of clinical strength deodorant.

Brandi McEntire

Absolutely amazing & worth every single penny! My son has a metabolic disorder that leaves him smelling fishy when he sweats & we live in a hot climate. Within a few days the fishy smell was 100% gone. This deodorant has literally changed his life. Thank you Lume!


I was thrilled to find a natural deodorant without baking soda that had such high reviews. I tried Lume the day after it came in the mail. I worked from home that day so I moved much less than normal. By the afternoon I notice a body odor smell and I’d literally been sitting for the day. I’ve been on a search for a natural deodorant that works without giving me an irritating rash. I’m sad to say Lume will go in the pile of “did not work” natural deodorants.


Really magical, and I had zero hope. I've tried them all. Made some. Tried being ok with them not really working. And finally gave up. Then I figured I'd give this my last effort. I seriously can't believe it works, but it does! Do the recommended prep (use the Persil detergent, the Miracle stuff didn't work great and is messy) and use as directed and you'll be as happy as I am. And shocked too, I'm sure! I love it.

I'll never buy another deodorant!

I never write reviews, but I felt I had to considering how much Lume has changed my life. I have been suffering from hyperhidrosis and private area perspiration for years. It has been embarrassing, uncomfortable, and most of all depressing. Lume has changed that for me. I can not live without this product. I live in FL where the weather gets very humid and Lume has passed the test with flying colors. I love this product for one reason... it works!!

90 Degree Run & Weight Session and it's ONLY Day 2!

Prior to *somewhat skeptically* ordering Lume, I had been a die-hard Secret Deodorant user. The last 15+ years it has been my go-to through two black belt tests, countless cross country running meets, sweaty Crossfit sessions, and those stressful life events that just make you sweat. While it mostly did it's job, I always felt like I was just covering up body oder, not to mention I knew the potential long-term effects the harsh ingredients could yield.

Two days (two applications) into using Lume, I went out for a 5 mile run in 90 degree weather and then bravely went straight into the gym for a heavy lifting session. I kept doing the somewhat awkward, trying to be inconspicuous, pit check for the duration of these workouts and was shocked. My pits didn't smell like ANYTHING; after that test, my old deodorant has a new home... in the garbage. I'm incredibly impressed with what Lume has to offer after two days and can't wait to see what else it has in store!


I was very skeptical about this deodorant as I have tried many natural deodorants and they have either not worked or given me a rash. This deodorant is amazing! Not crazy about the smell however it goes away when dry. This stuff really works. I have been using it all summer. I don’t sweat a lot, there have been times where my armpits have been sticky on hot days, but no odor at all. I am about to run out and disappointed to find they are on backorder. But I already preordered mine for September. I highly recommend this product.

I can't believe it!

I have been looking for YEARS, I'm not kidding, YEARS to find a deodorant that works. I have had the hardest time finding something that works and even the clinical deodorant I've bought doesn't work that well. I am skeptical of every single deodorant I try. I will NEVER use anything other than Lume. I've been using it for only two days but truly, everything else I've tried hasn't even worked on the second day. Try this if you relate to this post in any way. I promise you won't be disappointed!

I Can't Believe How Well This Works!

I read the September 30, 2017 article in the Star Tribune about Dr. Klingman’s new product that would eliminate underarm odor. As a former pharmacist, I will admit that I was very skeptical but when I read about the research, it made sense. If bacteria on the skin is responsible for a chemical reaction that results in underarm odor, and if Lumē can interfere with enzymes that the bacteria need, then odor would be eliminated. From a science perspective, it sounded like it should work so I decided to give it a try. I was amazed – it actually does work. I really notice it in my exercise shirts – they don’t smell at all. After years of pre-soaking and treating, I finally found a product that prolongs the life of my clothing and lets me feel fresher too. I honestly can’t believe how well it works! I reordered and I now have Lumē sticks in my gym bag and travel kit too. Thank you for such a great discovery!


This deodorant worked ok but has a strong unusal smell. I decided to try it on a work day thinking maybe it wasn’t as unpleasant as I thought. At work, I went to take a patients blood pressure and thought this patient had a funny smell and then I realized/remembered it was me.! 😞. Also, when I removed my scrubs that evening, there were white residue marks left on my clothes by the deodorant.

Stephanie Bajorek

I absolutely love Lume deodorant. I’ve tried other natural deodorants but they don’t work for very long. Lume is long lasting and has a nice scent. It lasts for 48 hours! I tested it in the Florida heat and humidity and I was five star happy with the results. I love the other testimonials. It thrills me to know how many people it has helped. Thank you for developing this wonderful product!

Awesome !

Our son age 12 no longer has body odor.
What a great product!
Even he can’t beleive it.

Truly amazing

I can not believe how well Lume works. I mean I am shocked! Lol when I use traditional deodorant at the end of my work day my under arms could have a smell to them. I can work a 10 hour day with Lume and nothing. ZERO odor. I’m telling all of my friends about it. 3 have already ordered it and waiting for its arrival. THANK YOU

Best aluminum free deodorant I\\\'ve tried

I've tried about a dozen aluminum free deodorants over the years but always ended up smelly and disappointed. This deodorant is a life changer! It works so well without requiring a second application throughout the day. Prepping man made clothes per the website instructions was an important step so my work blouses didn't retain old smells. I will definitely purchase again and I highly recommend it.

I was a skeptic...

I've tried natural deodorants in the past, only to be left smelly and disappointed that they didn't work. I had given up on the idea completely until I found out about Lume and decided to give them a shot. I was particularly interested in the "& Private Parts" part of what you can use their deodorant for.

I can tell you it worked from Day 1. I've tried it for underarms and private parts and never have to worry about smelling. Most days I only put it on out of the habit of putting on deodorant in the morning, not because I actually need it. I even put it to the test with a few high intensity work out classes - no odors! I highly recommend this product and have been telling all my friends about it!

If Only I Found This Deodorant 20 Years Ago

I have always had a bad case of body odor since I was a teen 20 years ago unless I put on chemical-filled deodorants DAILY.

I discovered how bad chemicals can be in regular deodorants 4 years ago and have been desperately finding a natural deodorant ever since that would work! I gave up and started using Certain Dri. Although effective, Certain Dri gave me chemical burns 😭 Finally, thanks to Lume, I’ve found a deodorant that is not only as effective as Certain Dri but natural and safe for pregnancy!!! Hoping for baby #3 soon! 🤗

THANK YOU LUME!! Can’t wait to be able to preorder the next batch that is available. You said September and I sure hope that’s true!

Lisa Silbernick

Since I had children, I have tried every deodorant under the sun that claims to be "clinical strength." Nothing worked!!! Not prescription, natural, clinical strength, Men's deodorant etc... I received Lume as a gift from my mom and thought" OK, here is another claim to freshness product."
I can not tell you how impressed I am day 7 into using this on my underarms and can go 15+ hours with no odor at all. We hit 80 degrees yesterday and I did NOT HAVE TO REAPPLY DEODORANT, YAY!

I will be a customer for life. This product provides confidence I have not had since the birth of my daughter 9 years ago and it changed my body chemistry making to sweat more. I am a believer in this product and the evidence behind why the product work hands down better than anything else on the market to eliminate odors. Thank you, Shannon for creating a product that allows me to feel confident again!

Eddie macias

I served for Shannon in Vegas and she offered me to try the product after she appeared on Shark Tank. My wife has gone through the deodorant and the applicator and she’s in love with the product. I couldn’t stray away from my degree but a great product, would recommend.


Lume has replaced my regular deodorant. The fact it's all natural is a huge selling point for me. I won't ever go back to "regular" deodorant.
New customers make sure to prime. It's key

90 Degree Run & Weight Session and it's ONLY Day 2!

Prior to *somewhat skeptically* ordering Lume, I had been a die-hard Secret Deodorant user. The last 15+ years it has been my go-to through two black belt tests, countless cross country running meets, sweaty Crossfit sessions, and those stressful life events that just make you sweat. While it mostly did it's job, I always felt like I was just covering up body oder, not to mention I knew the potential long-term effects the harsh ingredients could yield.

Two days (two applications) into using Lume, I went out for a 5 mile run in 90 degree weather and then bravely went straight into the gym for a heavy lifting session. I kept doing the somewhat awkward, trying to be inconspicuous, pit check for the duration of these workouts and was shocked. My pits didn't smell like ANYTHING; after that test, my old deodorant has a new home... in the garbage. I'm incredibly impressed with what Lume has to offer after two days and can't wait to see what else it has in store!


I never ever write reviews, but I felt I had to for this product. I’ve always heard of natural deodorants but never had any real interest in trying them until I came across the advertisement on Facebook. It caught my interest and decided to give it a shot. All I can say is WOW! From day one it worked. I placed a pea size amount from the pump under each arm, and I had absolutely no odor for the rest of the day, and it’s been like that every day. I work in sales, and my stress level is intense, I also work out daily so I definitely put this stuff to the test and it hasn’t let me down yet. It’s amazing, and I honestly will never use anything else.


I bought LUME for myself and 3 friends and we all love the product.


This is the first deodorant that has worked for me in years. I love the fresh scent and it truly lasts for 48 hours. Will never use anything else!

I was allergic

I was allergic to Lume deodorant. I have never tried a natural deodorant and have never been allergic to any other deodorant. I think it worked good on smells but only got to wear it a few days.

Lume Response
OH No! We are sorry to hear this as it is very uncommon. No matter what someone may be sensitive to one of the ingredients in the formula. Sometimes it is due to products that you have used before and you are noticing chaffing due to perspiration that results after you quit using aluminum products. That typically settles out for everyone if that is the cause as the wetness becomes less noticable after the initial priming period. One way we can find out it to try a little dab of cream on your forearm as a senstivity test. If you do fine there, then it most likely is due to the wetness and chaffing of skin rubbing on skin. Please contact us at heylume@lumedeodorant.com for a refund. We will happily refund you purchase price.
Not perfect, but works better than anything else I’ve tried!

I just got this deodorant a few days ago, so I’m still in the “priming” phase, but it’s held up fairly well in the scorching heat. Of course I still sweat, but I haven’t had any major odor issues. I like the natural scent and the lotion-like consistency of this product. It is easy to apply and absorbs quickly. Best of all, it doesn’t aggravate my underarms. Good stuff!

Started using Lumē about 6 weeks ago and will never use anything else ever again. This stuff is amazing, works for a solid 48 hours if needed. Never had any luck with other "natural" deodorants. Have told all my friends about Lumē!

Odor free

Lumē lives up to its claims....odor free for 48 hours both north and south regions of the female and male body!!!!

game changer

OK so stumbled upon a Lume advertisement in the wee hours of the morning while nursing the baby. After spending the last year smelling like a hormonal ball of stress I am 2 days in to using Lume and my mind is blown. I have 3 more sticks in my cart right now. Holy moly this stuff is so good. I only have time to shower at night before bed with 2 kids under 3 and a full time job. I put this on after showering and I am bad smell free all day. I am still "priming" but I am really thankful you made this product. Its making life a little bit easier. Thanks!


This product is a life saver. I am an ER physician and heard of your product on Hippocratic Hustle Oath. I am 8 months pregnant in the dead of heat in Texas. Let me tell you I sweat places I medically think are impossible LOL. But with this product I have great coverage all day. Top it off I’m allergic to fragrance so this product is beyond 5 stars. Wish the best of success and consider me a loyal customer.

Fresh as a daisy!

I needed something to control odor caused by occasional urine leakage. Panty liners alone weren't doing the trick. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have Lume deodorant for "down there" - that doesn't irritate or sting, and works all day and night! I've been recommending the Lume deodorant to all my friends. Thank you for an excellent product.

It works, plain and simple!!

Ever since having kids, I have had trouble finding a regular deodorant that worked for me. I have tried countless brands and had finally managed to find ONE (chemical-filled) deodorant on the market that kept me stink-free. I didn't smell, but I wasn't happy that I had to layer chemicals on my body daily, so I was always hoping something else would come along. I tried many brands of natural deodorant along the way. I had completely given up on finding a natural deodorant that really, truly worked for me. Then I saw a random video on Lume on Facebook. I was intrigued, and read over the reviews and saw that many people were having success. So for the price (and free shipping!), I figured it was worth a shot. I have to say that I must have sniffed my armpits 100 times the first day I wore it. I must have asked my husband to sniff my pits a 100 times that day. I didn't stink! I didn't shower the next day.... and I still didn't stink! I was hooked! My husband started wearing it too. He's a fireman and works 24-hour shifts. A few weeks ago he worked his usually 24-hour shift, then spent the next day in 90-degree weather working outside for 8 hours before finally coming home to shower. He returned the favor and asked me to sniff his pits - amazingly, after 48 hours of hardcore sweating, he STILL didn't stink!! The rest of his firehouse is hooked and have become customers as well. I tell everyone I can about this amazing product. Thank you!!!


I stupidly tested this product for the first time on the most stressful day of the year at work where I would normally have to re-apply a toxic but "effective" deodorant at least once. I had the nervous sweats, which for me normally mean an even worse kinda smelly. But after the whole extended work day, I couldn't smell anything in my pits. Like completely odorless. I was so astounded I made my husband smell too to see if I was going mad. He couldn't smell anything either! This was DAY 1 with a natural deodorant, which in my experience is unheard of. Anyway, I was skeptical at best because of my lack of success with other natural deodorants and after one day I'm a complete believer and feel like I need to share "the good word" with everyone. Well...let's be real, only the people I actually like. Anyway, thank you for developing such an unbelievable product that is a game changer!

Jessica G.

I knew this was an amazing product from the first time I tried it in the trial stages! So glad to have the final product. Thank you for creating something that not only works even after not showering 2 days in a row without having to reapply, but something that isn’t harmful to our health and doesn’t leave a sticky residue on your skin, clothes or my long hair that always seems to stick to those other products when blow drying it or being out on the lake in a swim suit!! I’m even going to gift it to my teen nephews because they sure can stink Lol.
I love Lume ☺


This worked from day 1. I've been using it for about 2 weeks now and continue to be thrilled with this product. I shower 2x a week and this keeps me from being stinky... the traditional antiperspirants didn't. I did notice some extra wetness (sweat) but no smell. And really isn't that more important. I'm suffering in the heat and still smell fresh!

The best DO ever

I seriously DO NOT SWEAT AT ALL with this deodorant. Trust me, I've tried them all, and I used to use certain dri which shrinks your pores with chemicals and I don't think there's any way that is good for you. When you first open this product it smells, interesting? Kind of like toothpaste mixed with baby powder, but once you put it on it doesn't smell, and I have no BO at all when I use this product. I wish more people knew about this product because it's revolutionary! Thank you Lume!

Customer for Life!

Lumē is the best deodorant ever. you have a customer for life.

OMG! She is a GENIUS!!!!

The inventer of Lume is a woman GENIUS!!! It is amazing! You will not believe it. I always thought if I was a super hero and had a super power it would be to have absolutely no body odor. Not that I stink, but what if you could go through your whole life and never have one smell!? Lume is that magic potion!!!! I was floored. U see these instagram ads and think, “ Does that really work??” This relly does do everything it claims to do. There is no odor ANYWHERE! You literally can not smell anything. It is almost weird how we’ll it works.
I am amazed and will continue to hoard it as long ad it is available!

Holy crap it really works!

I have a daily shower and hygiene routine, but drug store deodorant and antiperspirants have recently been failing me, even clinical strength. I've been aware of my own armpit odor after just a few hours, and I've been embarrassed and worried about it in the office . I saw the ad for Lume and honestly wasn't expecting much. It actually worked PERFECTLY the very first day that I used it. I couldn't stop obsessively checking for odor throughout the day, and every single time...nothing. I've been using it for three weeks now with continued success, even in the awful summer heat and humidity in the South. It's not an antiperspirant, so I can feel sticky at times, but I still absolutely do not smell at all. This product has restored my confidence when I'm around others, and I will not hesitate to purchase it again. Thank you!

I've been waiting my whole life for you!!

I've been trying for many years to find a non-toxic pit stick. They always fail. Then one random ad led me to you. Working at an Ob-Gyn clinic myself, I had a ray of light thinking "They get it, they are who I've been waiting for"! I was right. You are the amazing people who have created pure magic. And for that, I am so grateful! So I told the women I work with, they instantly thought of friends and patients who need this and became amazed customers themselves. It not only works for odor, and gives you the confidence that you will in no way shape or form have any funk smell coming from any part of your body no matter what you do that day. It also HEALS!!! My underarm skin is smoother than ever before, and the mysterious bumps from shaving and toxic ingredients are almost gone with the first stick. You can never change the formula, you can never be out of stock again 🤤, you can never stop making this magical creation. You are the peanut butter to my jelly, the sun to my moon, the red wine to my coffee, the taco to my guac.

Better than Baking Soda!!
Finally something works!

This deodorant has changed my life! I’ve suffered with underarm odor for as long as I can remember. I have tried just about every deodorant on the market. I always thought that aluminum based deodorants made me smell worse something in them just didn’t work with my body chemistry. So I started looking into natural deodorants I’ve tried several that had baking soda and they left me with horrible rashes and still smelly. So then I started looking for natural baking soda free deodorants and someone on an app called glow swore by lume so I checked out the website and decided why not it’s worth a shot and I’m so glad I did! Thank you for creating this life changing product! Definitely ordering more soon! I’m so afraid of running out!

Lume Deo

I received and used this deodorant on my underarms on Friday and immediately purchased a second for back up. No more itchies or redness. Hopefully i am done wasting money on other natural deodorants that irritate. Thank you Lume!!

Lisa Marie
Floored. Amazing. Yes.

I have to just praise this company for creating this product. I have tried numerous underarm natural deodorants and nothing works. But Lume WORKS. And I don't have to reapply. Also, a little bit goes a long long way. I love this brand and will continue to buy it!! Totally recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from the chemicals that go into the products that we put on our skin.

Kim Sandifer
Good stuff

I’ve been using Lume about 3 weeks. Regular deodorant, by the end of the day doesn’t smell great. Lume is working as well as regular. Early on the day I’m good but by shower time there is a hint (not bad) of odor. The sweating has significantly decrease after the detox. I love in Mississippi and is 95 with a heat index of 105. I’m pretty impressed with Lume ! I really like Lume and will continue to use it. I’m so glad I’m not using regular deodorants any more !!


This stuff is amazing! I was such a skeptic, but I was willing to try anything to fight against the summer heat and stink. I used this, and it started working immediately. I sat by the pool outside all day, and no smell! I use it everwhere- armpits, thighs, neck, underboob, anywhere you sweat! It is a giant relief and boost to the confidence not to worry about odor, even in the dead of summer! I'm a convert for sure.

Life Changing

For over 10 years I have struggled with smell from my personal area. I have two failed bladder mesh surgeries. I don’t feel confident in a dress and usually choose not to wear them. 1 week in and I’m a new women! I’m not afraid of spontaneous intimacy with my hubby as I smell fresh and have no fear! Plus I can wear dresses now! As a bonus I now can wear this as my deodorant and no more worries on smell! I live in the south and humidity is tough on us girls in sleeveless shirts, now I can sport one every day of the week. I tried to make my husband smell my stink free underarms after a full day, but he refused. No need to, I can raise my arms with confidence! Thank you for this great product!


Just amazing!! I know the dangers of traditional antiperspirant, but have never been able to stay away for long! I work in a fast paced, active and warm environment. I am always HOT and sweaty!! Even with “clinically” strength deodorants, I always have odor after 8 hours + !!! What can I say? My mind was blown! This is a truly amazing product!! I no longer worry about the person in the room with me being aware of my body odor!
I have never been so in love with a product before!!!

J R Dixon

I just love that this product does EXACTLY what it promises. It's nothing short of amazing. The odor control is like nothing else I've ever used (not that I've ever used deodorant on my private parts before). There is literally no funk at all (pits or privates) after a day without showering and a spin class. No smell at all! The smell of the product itself is a little weird. Like a cross between lavender, starbursts, and paste, but once it dries, there's no smell at all. Buy this! (Full price purchaser. Honest review.)


I love Lume! It has a great scent and lasts a long time! It has replaced the only deodorant that has worked for me since I was a teenager. I also love that it's free of the cancer causing chemicals of most commercial deodorants.

Amazing stuff!

Best find in a while! I’ve used traditional deodorant and antiperspirant for years and I have been looking for a natural alternative. Everything I’ve tried so far has been gritty or slimy and just didn’t work or feel good. Lume is fantastic, dries well and doesn’t leave residue and WORKS. No grit and good smell! My only problem is that I bought the traditional dispenser and it fell over in my toiletry bag and because of the consistency it all leaked into the cap. I realize that there is another dispenser that you can buy, I’ll probably get that one next time!

Lume Response
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We apprecite it and have been working diligently to improve the leaking sitution and this should not be a problem moving forward. We have improved this little snafu and apologize that it happened to you. Next one, no worries! 🙂

I love lume. I was afraid to try it at first. So glad I tried lume. It works great!!!

I love Lume!

I have been using Lume for 6 weeks now and absolutely love it!I have put it thru the toughests trials and it works! I have been on a cross country road trip and it works beautifully! I have been to death valley where the temps reached 111* on the day we were there and Las Vegas where the temp reached 104*and no odor! I used it on private parts and crevices that normally cause me issues and this product does exactly what it says it will do!!! Bravo Lume!!!

Jeanne Toomey

I still can’t believe that after working a long day I have NO body odor. Lume is amazing !!! My search is over!!! Thank you!!!

My new forever deodorant!
Best Natural Deordorant

I used aramaco to make the switch to natural deordorant and it worked well for a few weeks, then started causing skin irritation. I then used Schmidt’s which caused an immediate allergic reaction. So I had been using Toms and it worked well for about twelve hours and then gave out. This lasts all day and all night. I love how it feels on my skin, like I’m putting on lotion. There has been no irritation, no weird smell, and it lasts even through my hour long workout. I love the scent, it is very minty and herbal (think fresh, not patchouli). This is my deordant and I am so thankful to have found something natural that works with my body chemistry. Thank you Lume!!


As a 7 yr breast cancer survivor, I have been searching for a deodorant that was baking soda free(allergic), and more importantly CHEMICAL free. Lume fits the bill all the way! I don’t normally go a full 48hrs before reapplying...but with this—I Trust it!

Almost perfect

This is my first foray into natural deodorants. I have super sensitive skin so I was concerned about the deodorants with baking soda. Lume has worked great and not bothered my skin at all. There have been a couple instance where by the end of the day I smell a faint b.o. smell but I think I just didn’t apply enough on those days. I’ve been using it for almost a month and I’m impressed. My one complaint: I truly hate the smell of this product. Fortunately I find the smell goes away once the product has absorbed/dried on my skin, but I literally have to breathe through my nose while I apply it. There is a sour undertone that makes me gag. Would you ever consider making an unscented version? For me, the smell is a big enough issue that I don’t think I’m going to reorder. But still 4 stars cause I do think the deodorant works very well.

Lume Response
While we are not the expected "deodorant scent" you have come to expect, we are scented with clary sage and lavender essential oils at less than 1% and it fades quickly to virtually unscented.  We do have an unscented coming out summer of 2018 and it is just as effective as the original! It sounds like that may be the perfect fit for you! 
Only Deodorant that Works!!!

As a physician, I am concerned about what I put in and ON my body. For years, I have tried to find a deodorant that works with ingredients that I can trust. I have a drawer filled with many failures. This is the ONLY deodorant that has worked for me. It has a wonderful scent. Not only do I use it but I recommend it to friends, family, and my patients.

Life Changing

Dr Klingmaman,
You don't know how important your work is!! There has GOT to be a way to let more people know about this product. It is literally saving my life.
I have had bromhidrosis since I was in elementary school. I have been bullied my ENTIRE life. My thoughts and attempts at suicide began at 14.
I am now a disabled vet, who has lived my ENTIRE life with a fear of getting close to people... physically, and emotionally.
I've had partial apocrine removal, I've tried and failed aluminum based products, I've done salicylic acid externally to each axilla, isopropyl alcohol, vinegar. I prayed to God to either cure me or take me out of my misery.
Though I've always been grossly disappointed, I continued to search for solutions. I've spent countless dollars, only for products to immediately fail. Everyone has always assumed I simply don't practice good hygiene, and I actually shower more than most people I know.
I came across Lume online. I didn't believe it would work, but I had to try.
Doctor... for the first day in my adult life, I am experiencing odor free days. I cannot BELIEVE the efficacy of this product.
My only fear now is that it is EVER discontinued.
I wanted to personally thank you, for saving me nights full of tears. My coworkers have already judged me, but hopefully over time, their perception of me will change.
Thank you SOOOO much. I will be a life long user, and my daughter will be as well.
Please never underestimate the change you're making in people's lives.

SINCERELY and with Love,
K.S. | Florida

Best Ever!!!!

After reading reviews and trying about everything on the market I thought I would give it a try.. I am soooo happy I did this is the best deodorant in the world. Some have commented on the smell of the product but I use many essential oil products and I feel like That’s what I’m using, then it dries completely clear leaving no white or no scent at all and in the hot weather and humidity I am still smelling so fresh after a 12 hour day outside... I will forever be a customer thank you to the Dr who found and made this amazing product!!!!

Customer for Life!


First and foremost it works! I had wanted to use something more natural than the aluminum laden deodorant I was using but most natural deodorants don’t work a minute over 24 hours if that long. I have tossed my old deodorant in the trash. Lume is my new product of choice and it does so much more than armpits.

Thank you for thinking outside the box and coming up with this amazing product!

You have a customer for life!

I am more confident!

I am in my early 30s and I was very sweaty and smelling. I was very aware of how I smelt around people distance myself. I work outside at an amusement park that is where I asked my doctor for a prescription for B.O. I used that for 6 months that did not work. Saw Lumé on Facebook I was skeptical of buying one, I was amazed. 2 weeks of using it no B.O. no sweat just a pleasant smell. I can do my job better now. THANK YOU. I just bought more.

Jennifer Anderson

I have known Dr. Klingman since medical school and she has ALWAYS been an overachiever! She does not disappoint with this new product. I am also a gynecologist and have both used this product and recommended it to my patients. It has the desired effect--eliminating odor both under the arms and in private areas. It is wonderful to have a product to recommend that is safe and effective! And I absolutely do recommend it!

Didn't work at all as much as I wanted it to

Despite following all directions for priming both clothes and body, despite rubbing it into my underarms, despite giving Lume nearly two weeks, it simply didn't work for me. I've been wearing natural or homemade deodorants for years and this performed just as badly as most natural deodorants I've worn (like Tom's, crystal deodorants). I'm glad this has worked for others and wish the company well, but I will not be a customer and will be back to looking for an effective deodorant.

Lume Response
The most important thing to consider is clothing. It doesn't matter if the garment is new. If it contains manmade fibers, you will always have an accelerated BO reaction in the fabric. If you use a liquid detergent with animal fats, fabric softeners or dryer sheets you are adding a BO binder to the fabrics. So prepping your clothes minimizes it and makes it less likely to happen as quickly, but it will happen. When clinical testing is performed, the test subjects wear a brand new, laundered, 100% cotton "Fruit of the Loom" t-shirt and they have to change it for everyday the test is being performed. 100% of the test subjects obtained 48 hours of odor control. So my best advice is to try Lume with a laundered 100% Fruit of the Loom tshirt to demonstrate to yourself the contribution clothing makes to odor. You can also improve your odor control by continuing to rub Lume in with your fingertips.
Musty no more!

I have been on a mission to find a natural aluminum and baking soda free deodorant that works for about a year now.
I am a hairstylist and let me tell you from experience of having my underarms closer than usual it’s been a journey.
I found out that I do have a sensitivity to baking soda and would break out and I almost gave up and just went back traditional store bought aluminum deodorant.
But I bought Lume and it did take a little time to get used to, and for my body to regulate.
The first few days (about 4) I still had a smell at the end of the day, but nothing to horrible.
Then by the end of the week I swear I just stopped smelling anything! I live in Los Angeles and it can get hot! But I walk to work and blow dry hair all day and I smell great!
I love lume! Highly recommend!

The best Deodorant

In the past, I used clinical deodorants to keep the aroma away. but my armpits were hurting with that. I started using the natural deodorant and none stopped the aroma, adding to that my armpits were getting irritated and getting black. So I gave Lume a chance and my life changed. It keeps me fresh with no nasty aroma. my first deodorant lasted me like 4 months or more. Lume is the best!

Almost perfect

This is my first foray into natural deodorants. I have super sensitive skin so I was concerned about the deodorants with baking soda. Lume has worked great and not bothered my skin at all. There has been a couple instance where by the end of the day I smell a faint b.o. smell but I think I just didn’t apply enough on those days. I’ve been using it for almost a month and I’m impressed.

Would you ever consider making an unscented version?

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I am 55 years old. No matter what I did...even right after a shower or a bath I felt like I just wasn't fresh smelling. Then I saw Lume on Facebook and thought well, what do I have to lose? But I was skeptical. Wore it to work the last two days and warned my coworkers that I was trying something new. Actually took my regular antiperspirant with me to work just in case I needed some back up. Used it yesterday and today and I am in love! I keep doing sniff tests....nothing! Today I wore a skirt that always makes me sweaty and smelly down there. No bad odors. Nothing. I feel fresher and smell cleaner in my opinion than with any products I have used before. I can't thank you enough!

It Works!!

I have been using my Lume Deodorant for a week now. Other "natural" deodorants caused awful itchy rashes, so it's great to find something that actually works really well and causes no irritation. My only complaint is that when I first apply it, I almost gag at the smell. Thank goodness that smell goes away after several minutes.

Lume Response
We scent Lume with lavender and clary sage essential oils and that sounds like it's not for you! We have an unscented available the first week in September 2018:)
Exceptional! Changed my life

I'm a Pilates instructor and the nature of my job requires me to get close to people's personal space for correction during exercises...BO is not something I can have when teaching. I usually workout before I teach= sweating before I teach...
I have spent literally hundreds of $$$ on natural deodorants and all of them have left me with these weird musky, bitter smelling armpits. Enter Lumē deodorant. It is amazing! A total life changer! No more smell!!! I literally put my workout clothes on today (my day off) to go walk my dogs and then do a workout and I keep smelling my armpits, expecting that musky smell. Nothing, nada, zip! And it was very humid and warm here in NC and I sweated a bunch. I am sold. I wont buy anything else. Thank you so much for finally developing a natural deodorant that actually works!

Megan Shutes
Oh wow!

I became concerned about the risks of antiperspirants because I already have an extremely dodgy genetic predisposition for cancer. I tried a lot of the most well reviewed (and very expensive products) with at best limited success. I have only been using Lume for a week, but oh wow. It really really works.

Denise Borders
Better than Tom's, not as good as Schmidt's

I am sold on the aluminum free deodorants and I usually use Schmidt's but I wanted to try this one after reading some of the reviews. I have to admit that I like Schmidt's better all around, for smell and prevention of sweating. I won't be buying again.

Lume Response
Thank you for sharing your experience! Lume does not contain aluminum which is the only ingredient that can claim to control wetness. The scents of other deodorants that contain fragrance oils can be pretty amazing, but Lume is scented with essential oils and it clinically proven to provide 48 hours of odor control. Essential oils can take some getting used to, but the odor control alone is what everyone finds so amazing. The scent also fades to virtually unscented in about 30 minutes and we are coming out with an unscented summer 2018!
Use is Anywhere!

I love this stuff. I no longer stink! Anywhere! I also use for "boob sweat". A few times I've gone longer than 24 hours without reapplying and started to get "funky". Because I did not have time to shower, I applied Lume, and to my astonishment, THE FUNK SMELL DISAPPEARED. Unreal. Love this stuff. I'm a believer.

Mother and Daughter Confidence

I came across an ad for Lume on Instagram. I read, watched and pondered and then took the plunge. Some people may not think about odor as frequently as others, let alone worry about the body odor that their daughter is experiencing. I’ve been a police officer for 15 years and every time it gets warm I have a small panic attack worrying about how I smell after I’ve been sweating. The first day I received my Lume, I was scheduled for my firearms qualification. Six hours, in dark clothing, in 80 plus degree heat, body armor and no shade. I was drenched in sweat. Once I was done, I was back on patrol for the remainder of my shift. I brought an extra shirt and deodorant out of “habit.” I didn’t need either one. I had absolutely no odor. I’ll admit it, I kept smelling myself because I couldn’t believe it. So one day turned into two. Then two turned into three and now I’m about two weeks in and haven’t looked back. I got my daughter to try it and her confidence has just exploded. The price I pay for Lume is nothing compared to the priceless smile on my daughter’s face.


I Love the subtle, clean smell. Did Zumba, ran a 5K, 34 mile bike and 30 minute core; did not have to reapply – no kidding!
This is a winner, will continue to purchase.

I'm in love

I have tried so many different deodorants, natural and not natural. If they worked, they left me with a terrible rash that hurt or I had to reapply all day long. Lume is more of a lotion, which is easy to apply. I'm not in love with the scent but I find that it goes away within 30 minutes of applying the product so that doesn't bother me. I have worn it in hot vehicles, during my workouts, running around outside in 90 degree weather and every time I did the 'sniff test' there was no smell. I mean none. No sweat smell, no 'meat' smell, no product smell...nothing. I also tried it for my private parts because I do work out a lot and it controlled any sweat smell that I have had after a workout. I am impressed and will be ordering more.

Absolutely wonderful product!

I feel so fresh and clean all day. I am telling all of my Girlfriends about Lume and how great it is. Thank you for making one of the best and safest all over body hygiene products on the market today. Hooray for Lume! 🤗

When it comes to natural deodorant...this is a game changer.

A year ago I decided to stop putting toxic chemicals not only in but on my body as well. I have tried every natural deodorant I saw/heard about/was recommended-Tom's, Schmidt's, Native, Crystal's...you name it...I've probably tried it. I've found very few that have no baking soda (which I discovered is not good for my pits) and the selection was usually unscented and none of them controlled odor well enough for me to not be embarrassed or self conscious. I saw an ad on Facebook for Lume and I told myself this was the last one before I went back to toxic deodorant. For me...Lume was a game changer in my journey to finding a natural deodorant.
Definitely make sure to pretreat your shirts. I washed all my shirts with a persil pod twice before drying them and it made a big difference with pit smell...there was none. One pump rubbed into each pit and I am odor free until my next shower. Everyone's nose is different and I will admit the scent is a bit off putting as soon as you pump it out and rub it on but it dissipates after a few minutes and later in the day when it has mixed with the chemistry of my body I absolutely love the smell but if your nose says no please try the unscented. I am no longer embarrassed or self conscious that people can smell my B.O. (I asked all my friends to smell my pits and they agree...odor free). Thank you Lume for helping me take one step closer to living healthier!

Love love love

Please Lumē never stop making this product. I have never felt more confident in my life. No longer have to worry about stinky armpits!

First day fresh

Today is the first day I put on Lume. I walked around Manhattan in 90 degree weather. I was on the subway and in and out of buildings. Not a stinky smell at all. I love this product. I am in love and will definitely buy more!!!!

This stuff is magic!

Seriously. This is the best deodorant I have ever worn! And Lume works better than the extra strength stuff I’ve worn that has aluminum in it. I literally rubbed my armpits to check them. Gross? No, because it’s doing it’s job, and I’m odor free!


This really lives up to the claims! I am ordering again for my teenage daughter. Please keep making this! I love it!

It seriously works!

I wasn't expecting this product to live up to its claims, and I would have been happy if it kept me from stinking for 8 hours. I was amazed to realize that it truly does work all day and all night, and it works for 2 days if I haven't showered. (It might work for 2 days even if I showered, but I have not been brave enough to NOT use it after a shower.) I LOVE this product.

I’m a believer!

As a 300 lb. male, I was amazed how well Lume served me on a 5-day trip into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. No showers or even swimming for five days – there was ZERO odor coming from me!!! Lume was made for MN outdoorsmen, too!


I work two jobs (one a desk job for 9 hrs and the other a labor-intensive job 4-5 hrs a day) and usually had to use Secret Clinical to get through the day. Saw this product on a Facebook ad and decided to give it a try as I really try to use more natural products when possible, but in my case, it’s difficult to find one that can hold up to the long days and claims. I’m on day 3 and Lūme lives up to its claim! No odor and no deodorant stains under my armpits from using the product! I’m a fan of lavender anyway so that was a plus. Ordered the air pump because they were out of the stick version, but even then I wasn’t disappointed. A dime size soaks in effortlessly with no residue. I can tell this pump will last me a long time so well worth the price. So if you’re on the fence about the pump it’s a good buy.
One recommendation is to please come out with a travel size version of either version. I will be purchasing again.


I was pleasantly surprised that an all-natural deodorant actually works! I have used other natural deodorants in the past and they mostly made me feel sticky and did not manage odor. I tried it out during this hot NY summer and it manages odor incredibly well. I am amazed. As a cancer survivor, I want a healthy product. As a lifelong athlete, I need something that truly works. I have found both. I have been spreading the word! Thank you for developing a product that supports health.

Lume Deodrant is truly life changing for me!

I was a tester and could not have been more pleased with the results. I can work all day, sweat, got to the gym, sweat some more and NO ODOR! It is like magic. I wish I had this product in my 20’s and 30’s.
I don’t consider myself to be a sweaty or smelly person, but sometimes deodorant was just not strong enough. I even tried all of the “clinical” formulas. Nothing worked as well as Lumē.
It works equally on underarms and private parts. This stuff is fantastic!!!

Lume is amazing! As a runner you are always concerned after your runs with offending other people with your odor. After using Lume for just a couple of days I have done several runs and have not had any concern. This stuff is amazing. I will be recommending it to my running group, YvsTY, and hopefully you will have many more people ordering soon.

Jessica Thompson
Baby now that I found you.....

I’m an Alabama gal .... it’s hot here..... like crazy hot! I’m a mom of 4 and I can’t stand to stink! This stuff is incredible!!! I can Zumba, work in the yard and still no odor! 😍 I’m sold! Crystal wasn’t working..... I hate the idea of using chemicals on my body..... I’m going to get my husband to try this next! I’m blown away!

Life Changing

I am a 40 year young woman. I have tried every deodorant under the sun! I could shower, do my morning routine of hair and makeup and before I put on clothes I already stink! It’s been so frustrating. I went to a dermatologist and she said I have some type of bacteria and gave me acne pads to rub on everyday. It would last for a while but by end of day it stopped working. I would rarely wear sleeveless shirts as it was always worse that way. Well I’ve used this for 4 days so far in this southern heat and no smell whatsoever! Literally life saving, self esteem empowering! I will never go without!

Never thought I would find something more natural that works!

After using Dove for as long as I can remember and learning of the questionable ingredients in it, I wanted to find a more natural deodorant. I tried many. They didn't work. I didn't have the time in my day to take numerous showers a day or clean up multiple times a day and I work with many people so I certainly didn't want to smell! I happened upon a local tv interview about Lume and didn't really expect it to work, but thought - it's local and after reading the details on the website, gave it a go. I am THRILLED with Lume! I can't say enough great about it. Just a heads up, I was one of the people that wondered why does this seem to work most of the time and then certain days I felt like it wasn't. After reading the FAQ on this website, I discovered Lume was always working - I didn't smell. It was my old clothes when a little heat from me reached them that must have had build up in them. The clothes smelled. So I did have to let go of numerous tops but they were old and tired anyway. So worth it! I did try washing in nature's miracle and a few were okay to keep but many had to go. (You can read more about this in the FAQ section on the Lume website.) Lume is AWESOME!


I ordered the two pack in the pump. This stuff works great! It is super easy to put on and isn’t tacky (doesn’t leave a residue). There is absolutely no skin reaction- and my skin gets angry very easily. I’m not a fan of the smell - but it is very subtle and I don’t notice it much after application.
Additionally, I was having a problem checking out and customer service was amazing!
Can’t wait for more options and good things from this company!


I must be the only person on earth that this product hasn’t worked for. I’ve been using it for over a month and I still can’t make it 12 hours even without smelling like I’ve not showered in weeks. I’m still giving 3 stars as it doesn’t have a heavy “cover” scent, it just smells clean. I just wish I did ☹️

Lume Response
Be aware of your clothing. Man made fabrics really harbor older waxy and oil based products you have used in the past. A little moisture and heat reactivates the familiar BO smell and once you take the top off, without laundering, the sweat and bacteria thrive on man made fibers and keep on doing that BO production thing! Nature's Miracle or Persil are the best products we have found to break that old BO down. Spritz the pits of your shirts before throwing them in the hamper and you will notice a difference. Reach out to us at support@lumedeodorant.com if you have any other questions. We are happy to help.

Great stuff!

I purchased Lume on a whim, and I am not disappointed.

I have been using natural deodorants for about 20 years now, and have had varying levels of success with buying and DIYing a ton of different deodorants. Most of them resulted in a rank stench that was worse than me not wearing anything at all. The best of the bunch, which I've been using for many years now has been a liquid mineral spray. After sweating, it left me with a more natural musky smell. It wasn't terrible, but still stank up my clothes and doesn't last more than an hour on super hot sweaty days.

Lume totally does though!!! I have worked in the yard for hours, sweating like crazy and have ZERO underarm odor. ZERO. I am a sweaty betty, so this is a freaking miracle. I am stank free for 24 hours. I have yet to have any success reaching 48 hours without reapplication in just my normal day to day activities.

The stick was sold out, I don't like stick deodorant anyway, so I purchased the lotion. I am not a fan of the scent; it smells like I should be living in a van down by the river in Taos, New Mexico. Blech. However, once it has been applied and dries down, the dirty- hippy- covering -up- their- stench- with- essential- oil- smell dissipates.

I am a die hard fan and look forward to buying the scent free version that I hope is in the works. But, even if it isn't, I will still buy this liquid gold.

Wow! I never knew you could get excited over deodorant that works!! 🙂

I have just finished using this deodorant for a week. Wow! It really truly works better than any deodorant I have used in my life. Such a nice mild fragrance. No overwhelming smell or perfumes! No rash, no stinging, so easy to put on! I can't believe I'm excited over a deodorant! I can't believe I'm taking the time to write a review! I'm just so honestly impressed. I usually need at least one application of deodorant a day, and after 8-hours it is obviously losing effectiveness. I really got through 48-hours with this with no reapplication and it worked great! I also love the fact that it does not cause any skin reaction. I have no irritation, no itching, no residue, no overpowering smell. It is just so refreshing to have such a simple experience with deodorant. I honestly never realized what a pain normal deodorant was. I think I am a convert for life. It is just such a pleasant experience. I thought it was a bit weird at first, since it is not a solid, but more of a cream, but it was super easy to apply, spread, and it just absorbs and fades and is gone! No residue, no stickiness, no gel, nothing. I really think I am so very lucky to have stumbled on this stuff! Wow! Why isn't this available on Amazon and at grocery stores and everywhere! It is just so awesome for anyone who has sensitive skin or who hates strong perfumes and smells or who doesn't like residues, or who simply likes a long-lasting truly effective deodorant. I have never used anything like this. I still cannot believe I am taking the time to write a review on deodorant or that I am even spending this much time thinking about deodorant. I never thought of it before, but actually using Lume made me realize just how much better this is than anything I've ever used before. If you are curious, just try it. I can only share my own experience, but I am really impressed. I am buying some more today. I just hope this is always around and doesn't disappear. I really hope this amazing product is successful and that more people discover it. Such a truly different, amazing, and effective product. All I can say is... Wow! and... Thank You!! 🙂


This product truly does work. I’ve only been using it for 3 days now, but from what I have seen I already know I will be buying more. I have always struggled with sweating but this product leaves me feeling fresh (both my armpits and private parts). NO MORE ODOR! Thank you for creating this product.

Lisa Kannenberg

I cannot say enough positive things about Lume! It's INCREDIBLE! This product is a serious game changer.
It's a delicate subject to talk about, but I am so glad I discovered Lume!

Not for me

Sooo the scent seemed to be at odds with itself. I agree no scent would be best. However almost immediately putting it on after a shower I smelled nasty. I thought I just needed to try it after all it was created by a medical professional and I being a nurse - would reap the benefits of it being tested in high pressure environments. NOPE. It was yuck (almost applying the exact smell I was trying to escape from) from the moment I spread it on to the morning I washed it off just so I could sleep. I am also headed to Hawaii soon and after using it in the sun/humidity the couple of days it left a greasy wet feel under my arms on my shirt. Not appealing. Several ER colleges gave me a sniff over and agree this won’t pass our standards. Sorry 😫.


I’ve been on my natural journey for years. It’s been the worst struggle as I could never find a deodorant that fully worked for me. I started with Tom’s, which did nothing. I then switched to Schmidt’s, which worked temporarily but then left me with a horrible rash. I tried two separate formulas of Primal Pit Paste (the unscented and then the activated charcoal version)...nothing! I tried so hard and was really about to give up. And then I found Lume. This deodorant is LIFE CHANGING. I haven’t been smelly since day one. I can have the busiest of days and still no smell. My husband can attest to the fact that I once came home from an extremely busy outdoor day (and I should add that I live in sunny, humid South Florida), took off my shirt, and broke down in tears because I was smell-free and couldn’t remember the last time that was the case. This brand has changed my life and I’ll recommend it to anyone who asks. Buy, buy, buy!!!!

I’m impressed

I’ve found pretty good natural deodorants. But this one is one of the best. While I still Sweat under certain circumstances, there’s no smell. At all! It’s thin like applying a lotion. Seems to absorb quickly. It’s completely non-irritating to my sensitive skin. It just works wonderfully. And the fact you can apply it anywhere makes it really stand out from the pack. Any hiker, active person, or camper knows that not just your underarms that get funky. This easily solves that. Very clean feeling. Highly recommend.


This stuff is amazing! Seriously, you must try it!!!


My one "stinky pit" met it's match, even after cutting grass in 90 degree temps.. Thanks LUME

So far the best!!

I am in Love with this deodorant!!! Have tried many different “natural” brands and I LOVE this for the odor control.

Barbara J. McDonald
Works as Promised

I first heard of this product when there was a blurb about it in the Sunday business section of the Mpls. or St. Paul paper. I liked the fact that it was a local product, was developed by a doctor, and actually prevented odor rather than masked it. I ordered two in Nov. or Dec. 2017--one for myself and one for a friend who has gotten interested in the natural movement (food, etc.). This product works as advertised--no odor, even on day 2. It may be a little more expensive than other deodorants on the market, but it's worth the price.

Finally a product that works that is not irritating to my skin

I have very sensitive underarm skin and have been unable to use deodorant for years. I have tried numerous different products specifically recommended by my dermatologist, but all of them have caused irritation. Your product is the first thing I have found in 10 years that works and does not irritate my skin. Thank you so much!

I love it!!

I was watching the news and saw this product. I purchased it and I love it! I am so happy I watched the news that day!

AMAZING. Life Changing!!

I've tried every prescription-strength deodorant on the market, only to be disappointed with the results. NOTHING has ever worked this well. For the first time in my life I'm not worrying about body odor or having to reapply deodorant. The hottest/sweatiest of days can't break through this stuff, and I'll be a user for life!


All I can say is wow this is the first deordant that has worked on me and it's clear once it drys. I skipped a day and didn't even have to reapply. I take Hot Yoga and it worked great. It's been about 7 days. For the part of keeping me dry, it might need a little work but I will let you know after the 14 days are up but so far I really love it and can't wait for my daughter to try it.

Lume Response
Hi Angela! We are glad to hear you love Lume! We do not contain aluminum which is the only ingredient that can make the claim to control wetness, so therefore we do not control for sweat.
Best stuff ever!

I was watching wcco one morning when I heard a lady talking about this product. I have been looking for a deodorant for awhile that will work for more than an hour. Ive tried so many, even had my doctor prescribe something that burned awful and still didn’t work. I ordered both the underarm and air pump and it works!! I love it!! I spent the entire day house cleaning after using the product and I still felt fresh. Plus the fact that it’s aluminum free is an extra plus. Thank you for making this wonderful product! My daughters thank you too!


Thank you thank you for this product. I have been diagnosed with vaginal bacteria multiple times and it keeps coming back.I was thinking it doesn’t hurt to try it. I bought it not sure what to expect but thought let’s give it a try. I have been using it a week now and feel more confident then ever. Lumē is going to be part of my daily routine.
Thanks again.

Pam Hauge
Life Changing Product!!!

I just wanted to reach out to you to let you know I saw your interview advertising your product on WCCO/Channel 4 a week or so ago.

I immediately placed an order.
I have not been able to use any kind of deodorant for many years now, and I have tried everything.

I have been successfully using this product for 4 days now without breaking out from it.

I am so happy with this product and I had to let you know this.
Thank the lord for Channel 4/WCCO news.

Sincerely, a very great full and clean smelling customer😊

Love this product!

I had tried other natural deodorants in the past and it always made my underarm feel really waxy and I can still smell odor . I been using traditional deodorant for years and always look for products that say extra strength or clinical strength and I still don’t feel odor free and confident. Every time I shower I have to scrub off a whole layer on waxy residue. Using Lume on the other hand I did not feel the waxy discomfort and it controls the odor . I’m so happy that I finally found a product that works and I feel good using . Thank you Lume !

This really works!!!

I’m so amazed!!! This works!!! Now that I’m a believer I’m having my stinky son who is 10 try it out - yay!!!

Great product!!

This product is wonderful! I sweat profusely at the gym and am always concerned about odor. Lumē has eliminated all odors and my need for prescription strength deodorant. There is a light lavender scent that I LOVE! I will be a customer for life.

I love it

I’ve been using lume for about a week and I never want to go back. I work long hours and this stuff really works. I can’t smell myself after a long day, which is honestly a miracle. I love the way it applies like a lotion, and it’s very gentle on my sensitive skin. The smell when first applying the product is a little different but it’s honestly grown on me (plus the scent only lasts about a minute.) 5 stars, I highly recommend.


This product has TOTALLY changed my 17 year old daughters life! We had tried EVERYTHING for her sweating and body odor both underarm and her private area. Lume works MIRACLES! Thank you so much!

Amazing stuff!!

Thank you so much. I heard about this product on the I don’t get it podcast. I immediately bought it! Ok TMI alert: But I have tried everything I could think of to deal with the smell down there. Liners, changing underwear a few times per day. Buying breathable underwear, loose pants. But I’m on day 3 of using this and it’s amazing! I was always embarrassed leaving a smell after using the bathroom. But now there’s no smell at all! Sorry for tmi again but it really works

The best ever

Best deodorant I have ever used! I have always been in search of the perfect deodorant and I think I have like 7 in my cabinet right now! But they always have a lingering smell and mixed with body odor, I did not like them! I was also paranoid that I would get used to the smell so I would frequently change deodorants. This one is great I don’t smell at all ! And living and working in South Texas, I need it !! I truly converted and good bye all other deodorant!


I’ve searched years and tried so many deodorants until I found Lume! I love the light fresh scent, and it does not leave any residue that will rub off on clothing plus you won’t stink! You won’t be disappointed with your purchase!

Surprised me!

No sting, no rash, no stinky parts. Love it.

Thank YOU!!!

Thank you Lume for a wonderful product! I have been looking for a more natural deodorant that didn't have baking soda in it. I can't use those due to serious skin irritation. Now finding your product I can't believe how well it works without irritation! I lost my older sister to cancer so I am making sure I try and use more natural products and less chemicals on my body and Lume it is...thank you again...you are the best!


I have had a really hard time finding a deodorant that worked for me since I started menopause. This works 100%! Absolutely love it, have recommended it and will reorder! Thank you!!

Most Excellent!

I have been using "natural" deodorant for approximately 5 years now. My biggest problem was always the baking soda; although it helps greatly with odor and wetness, one of my armpits would get a rash after a couple days of use, causing me to have to switch to one that doesn't contain baking soda - and it just didn't work as well. After figuring out how much Lume I need (a full pump for the problem arm, and half for the other), I go a full 24 hours without odor, and can even go another day with just a quick wash and reapplication. The fact that it works in the private area is a bonus!


Being a 70 year old female I have typical dry skin and use an almond oil soap which helps. However, daily showering dries my skin out no matter what. So my choice is to shower every other day and hope my B.O. stays under control-but it doesn’t always work out.
Two days ago I showered and “primed” my underarms with Lume and have remained completely odor free. Today, being braver, I showered and extended the “priming” to my private parts. I have hopes this will work for each of my B.O. areas.

John Tinucci

The only issue/problem I've had is if you lay the product on its side, as in traveling it leaks out into the cover. And a good amount at that. Otherwise it works as advertised and I'm ordering again.

Lume Response
Thank you for sharing your Lume experience. We are thrilled to hear it is effective odor control for you. The propel container, due to the holes on top are subjected to leaking when the container lays on it's side for long periods of time. We appreciate you mentioning that to us and we have worked very diligently to resolve this issue moving forward.
Love , love, love!!

I have been using this deodorant for two weeks now, and I am in love! I have tried every natural deodorant on the market and have liked quite a few. This one is special. Not only do I not have to clean up and reapply, I don’t have to reapply in the morning now. No stank, no checking, no issues. My underarm skin is also normal looking again, and it feels petal soft. Did I say how much I love this? Going to give it to my 15-year-old son next, during basketball season. 👍


This stuff is really great! I'm truly impressed with how well it works. By far the best natural deo I have ever used!


I am so glad I stumbled upon Lume! I have been trying to find a natural deodorant for years and have tried SOO many brands. But I have never found a brand that had it all. Lume is very light in scent and you can't even smell it after you put it on, and wow does it work well for underarms! With natural deodorants I'm used to putting it on more frequently, but not with Lume! Also, a little bit goes a long way!


So for about 7 years I've made my own deodorant with baking soda etc etc until 2 years ago I was having horrible irritation not realizing it was from the baking soda so at that point I made a baking soda free version well it didn't work, had to apply several times a day until I discovered Lume and I must say WOW life changer. I sure hope this sticks around Forever. Thank you Shannon for making this wonderful deodorant!!

Candice Forte
From Skeptic to Strong Supporter!

I have tried multiple natural deodorants over the years. They have all left me....stinking, or sometimes burned and stinking. I saw Lumē on a Facebook ad and thought, “for $12, why not try it?” I am so glad I did! I started using it in May 2018 and it is now September 2018. I haven’t had odor issues since May. I have had a few shirts that were man made fibers and caused issues, but only in the hot hot summer in Oklahoma. I will never go back! My husband was not interested at all until he started having odor issues a month and a half ago. I suggested Lumē a few times and he didn’t really respond much but it must have gotten bad because finally he said he wanted to try it. He was amazed! Odors almost immediately went away! We love this stuff! Oh, and we discovered we do not need to put it on but once a day. I can go two days, but still that is pushing it for me a bit. The winter months I may be able to, though!!! Love it!


This is the only product that genuinely is effective no matter what. I tried native and loved it but it wore out quickly, stained my shirts, and I often reapplied or questioned if it made me smell worse by the end of the day. Tom's unscented was completely ineffective. This product leaves no scent on my clothes or body and no stains. Dries quickly. I love it. One of my shipments had some issues and they responded in less than 24 hrs, refunded cost, and shipped a new stick. Can't say enough good things.

Not stinky!

Day 3, so far so great! Usually I use a bunch of products to avoid stank. I have tried numerous natural products but they didn’t work and also gave me a horrible rash. With Lume, no rash and no stank. I keep sniffing myself to check, but nothing! I’m amazed. I’m usually really self-concious about body odor. And I’m definitely sweating, the a/c in my office is not adequate.

FINALLY! A natural deodorant that REALLY WORKS!!!!

I am so blown away by this product. I've tried what feels like every natural deodorant on the market -- all the drugstore stuff, the fancy stuff from France, all the ones you see advertising to you on Instagram... NOTHING worked like this does. And no wonder -- the ingredients in every other natural deodorant are basically variants on the same thing, while you can see reading the ingredients and the information on this page that Lume works totally differently. AND IT WORKS. Seriously. And not by just masking odor with another scent. I will say that when you first put it on it is fairly strongly scented -- kind of a medicinal lavender that I don't love. But that smell goes away in about an hour, and never transfers to my clothes. And what I'm left with is 24 hours of... NOTHING. No odor. None. On top of which, none of that feeling in the shower of having to try to scrape off layers of crud on your armpits! And absolutely no transfer or impact on your clothes, as opposed to what I've found with many other natural deodorants that include things like coconut oil. I have the Lume push-up stick and I'm thinking of stockpiling as I get nervous just thinking about the possibility that this product might not be around forever.

Convinced after one day

Holy cow, this stuff is AMAZING! After a sweaty, hot day that normally would have left my pits RIPE, I have ZERO odor! I am going to spread the news far and wide about this miracle product

Works but smells bad

This definitely works but the smell of the deodorant itself is unpleasant. I wish they would make different scents or an unscented version.

It Works. Period.

I’ve had Lume deodorant for a few days now and I have to say that I am pretty blown away. I honestly didn’t have too high of hopes but was just tired of having my underarms smell no matter what I used. So, yesterday was my first full day wearing it and my therapy dog and I were scheduled to volunteer at a local assisted living facility. The residents keep it so warm in their rooms there (even though it's 90+ degrees outside right now in SC) that I’m always so stinky after we are done. I was there an hour and a half and it was HOT in some of those rooms but I had ZERO underarm smell when we were done....I couldn’t believe it. I'm also thrilled that this is a natural deodorant. I've been wanting to make the switch for a while but couldn't find something that was good for you AND worked. Look no further. It Works. Period.

Works Like Magic!

This product works like magic. I don’t know how it does it, but it works better than any other product I have ever tried. Lady parts? The Bomb. Underarms? No more itchy baking soda rash for me and it is FAR MORE EFFECTIVE than any sensitive skin formula of other natural deodorants. This deodorant is like no other. Completely unexpected.

Marcia Wheeler
I love Lume!!
Where did the BO go?

I love Lume. I too had tried every deodorant known to man with nothing but poor results. This stuff works!!!

I’ve read your recommendations to remove the bad memories from clothing however I have so many allergies that I hate to put the whole item in a tub of the those things.

I would like to make the recommendation that you create a spray that could be used on the pit-i-ful areas of things before they are placed in the laundry.

With a practice and a business with Lume, I’m sure there are several hours to do more successful creations.

Thank you for Lume.


This stuff is amazing! you need to try it!

Better than most

After reading all the reviews I decided to give it a shot. I’m not 100% convinced of the 48 hour claim, it’s barely lasted 1 day for me. It works better than the majority but I still smell a bit by the end of the day. I will continue to use it as it is better but not as great as I wanted it to be!

Lume Response
Be sure to continue using it after checking out our tips on "Getting Started" page. It can take up to 2 weeks and everybody is different so keep that in mind. The longer you use it the better it gets. As far as the 48 hour odor claim, you really need to be aware of the contribution that clothing makes to underarms odor. Test subjects are required to wear a brand new, laundered 100% cotton t shirt for the study and if you look at the clinical testing chart on the clinical testing page you will see that the expection should not be for zero odor. It is dramatically reduced over baseline odor.

I have had the worst time with deodorant after having a baby. For the last year it either itches or doesn't work. My hormones have changed so much after having a baby and I smell stronger than usual. This deodorant is amazing, it doesn't itch and I don't smell all day, or even when I wake up. I highly suggest this to anyone and everyone!

I’m so happy I bought this

I’ve been using lume for a week now and it is honestly life changing. I have to wear hosiery every day as a flight attendant and lume has been a game changer. I don’t smell after a long day on the plane! Anyone who travels frequently can recognize how miraculous this is. Customer service is also really quick to respond if you have any questions! Thanks y’all


So after years of using "clinical strength" to get me through long nursing shifts and even worse, whitewater kayaking in layers of neoprene and Goretex - it started breaking out my underarms. I tried some "natural" deodorant from Whole Foods which did nothing. I tried Lume and was amazed! It works better than the "prescription strength" and doesn't cause any issues with breakout.

Best Decision Ever

I had some health changes in the past two years and decided to make some small changes such as finding a natural deodorant. Prior to finding Lume, I tried two other brands and the first one broke my skin out terribly and the other had a slight irritation. Lume is amazing. It works! After following the "Getting Started" procedure to acclimate the body to Lume, I absolutely love this product as there is no irritation and no BO. In fact, I bought one for my daughter to try as she uses men's deodorant as she stated the women's deodorants don't cut it for her. She hasn't indicated one way or the other yet and I'll follow up with her soon. As for me, this is the one and only natural deodorant that works. As others have expressed, you have a lifelong customer and I hope this product never goes away.
Recently, I went on a trip to DC and walked the Washington Mall. The weather outside was hot and humid and I walked nearly 11 miles that day. Yes, I sweated, but there was absolutely no BO!! I was impressed and this is the day I fell in love with this product.
Not a great fan of the initial smell, but it's tolerable until it dissipates. However, so glad to see you've come out with an unscented version...I've pre-ordered 2 stick applicators!! Thank you and well done Lume!!


Saw the article in the Star Tribune Sunday Oct. 1. Have struggled with underarm odor for my whole life. Had been using Tom’s brand of natural deodorant because of no aluminum- EVERY PIECE of my clothing, sweaters, jackets STUNK!! I was starting to think I would take the cancer risk over the BO and go back to aluminum based products.

THIS PRODUCT IS A LIFESAVER!! I recommend it to everyone!
Thank you so much!


The Holy Grail of Deodorants

I think in life there are a couple of things that you want to get right... You want to find your ideal soulmate, you want to find your ideal career, and you want to find deodorant that works. Regarding the deodorant - I am blown away by how well Lume works. Being a person of what I would consider to be likely "normal" BO... I have worked out with Lume (... and nothin!), went to a hot, sunny baseball game (...nothin!), and have been living my happy little odor free life ever since buying this product. I am pretty blown away by how effective it is, and not only that, but how my armpits feel... I didn't realize just how gross regular deodorant makes them feel until going with Lume. They now feel like I am not wearing any deodorant, (which is a new, really nice feeling I have to say), and I am ecstatic to think that no more shirts will get those creepy eventual baked-in deodorant markings over many wearings. This product is going in the list of my favorite things that I have ever bought, over my entire lifetime. I want to tell every single person I know about how incredible this product is. It is a life changer!!!

best deodorant on the market

I wanted to wait a bit before writing a review to make sure the results were accurate. I’ve been using Lume for two weeks and it’s honestly been life changing. I’ve tried so many deodorants, most recently Native, and nothing has worked! Living in Florida, this is a huge issue. Lume has kept me odor-free for throughout the day. I apply at night and don’t reapply until I shower the following night. After workouts, no smell. After a day at work, no smell. A day at the beach, no smell. And it might sound strange, but using it between my legs has been a game changer: no smell at all. I’m no longer embarrassed by my body odor, and my clothes no longer reek after wearing them all day. I just can’t say enough about this deodorant! Thank you Lume, for giving me my confidence back.


I have struggled finding something that works for me most of my adult life. Even clinical strength anti-perspirants don’t hold up when I get hot. I’ve only used this product for three days and so far I’m sold. Usually after an evening walk, I can smell myself but so far, no issue. I haven’t tried this yet with an all day, out I’m the sun excursion but I have high hopes. Thank you Lume!
