Good Anti-perspirant

What I love about this anti-antiperspirant is that it is natural and it doesn't make my pits smell like anything at all. I'm a VERY sweaty person and so I feel really conscious all the time. I like walking to school and every time i do, I get so sweaty that my shirt is already wet with sweat by the time I get to school. It's such a turn off, but with this I feel very confident and I don't feel worried about sweat at all. I use it on my underarms and sometimes even my back when I have to. It is really hard to rinse off though, which is fine because it only means you are really protected against sweat.

Yep. It works.

It is kinda pricey. Yes. But definitely worth purchasing. I purchased one for my partner because he really perspires alot. The essence lasted for more than 12 hours and it did not irritate his sensitive underarm. He is really happy about it. He would probably use it for months because he need not to spray alot and the bottle is kinda big.

Really, really works

Been using it for years now and though it leaves a feeling that there is a thin film on my skin after spraying, that's a small setback from the coverage that it gives me all day. I had a problem with the container at first, but after reading the box and the label on the product, I found out that I can get rid of the residue by cleaning the pump with warm water.

Effective, might stain dark clothes

Been using this for years and it's very effective in combating body odour, even during gym days. On rare days though, it does leave the skin a bit dry and flaky and over time, will tend to leave a white stain on black/dark clothes.

A very good anti-perspirant for sensitive skin.

This really works. I've only started using this recently but it has worked wonders already. I typically sweat a lot and I have sensitive skin as well. I have gone through a lot of underarm products that works well as an anti-perspirant and deodarant that don't irritate my skin. And the past products I have tried couldn't quite meet my expectations. But Essence anti-perspirant really works for me. It keeps my underarm dry and smell-free all day even when I work out. And since it's fragrance-free, it doesn't leave an unpleasant smell when the chemicals mix with sweat. I just make sure to that the product dries first before putting on clothes for best result. And to wipe the nozzle after every use to prevent clogging.

Works but can be improved

This is a great anti-perspirant that does the job of keeping you sweat and odor-free. I liked that I can also use this as a foot deodorizer whenever I feel like not wearing socks. Whilst this helps in keeping underarms sweating at bay, however, the packaging can see some improvement. The atomizer can get clogged over time and makes the product difficult to be dispensed. As shared by other users, this could be easily cleaned by rinsing it off but I still hope that VMV would find a better product packaging to prevent this from happening in the first place.

good enough

I like how this antiperspirant keeps me sweat-free even on the hottest days and does not make my skin itch. I've been using this bottle for three months now without it running out - one spray is enough. I like the Illuminant version better though because the Essence's spray nozzle clogs up every 5 uses or so, which is something I never experience with the Illuminant. As with the Illuminant, the product is a bit hard to get off the underarms with just soap and water - it needs a good scrubbing.

Effective, but packaging could be better

This does a great job in reducing sweat, considering it's free from allergens. My only issue is the spray. Yes, I followed instructions to wipe off the excess each and every time I used it. With every use, it gets harder and harder to dispense product. Until the day came when it broke on me. I still use this, but I have to unscrew the cap and apply it with my hands.

It's really effective in keeping underarms dry and odor-free all day. I love how there's no fragrance in it since it sometimes overpowers my perfume and I obviously stink of deodorant. Their bottle could do much better though. When you dispense the product, it can cause the nozzle to clog. I had to pour it slowly from the bottle.

Not a fan of the container

I use this alternately with the illuminant. A couple of sprays would be enough to keep your pits dry all day. Because it's super water-resistant and easily dries, the spray nozzle can dry up too and clog the hole. I tried cleaning it with alcohol/ makeup remover to remove the residue but it doesnt always work so i clean it with soap and running water so it sprays again. Other than that, i think this product is effective

I bought this because a "really sweaty" blogger said it was really effective.

It's okay but I still sweat like I do with other antiperspirants. I don't feel like it actually made me sweat less or that it keeps the sweat at bay.

Might look for something cheaper once this runs out though this looks like it'll last a while.

This is a good product, effective anti perspirant. The bottle lasted me for about 6 months. But I have found other organic yet effective products that cost less. Since I do not have very sensitive under arm skin, I will now go for the cheaper option. Some people have black underarm issues and should refrain from using products that have too strong ingredients

High maintainance for a deodorant

It keeps you protected from excessive sweat, but the problem is the container itself... after a while too much salt deposits form clogging the pump.
