The local grocery stores carry them for me. I've tried both the crystal salt and Tom of Maine.

Both last but if you sweat profusely, Tom of Maine is a better choice. The crystal salt is odorless and is truly invisible while Tom of Maine's is almost lemony and a little waxy in consistency.

As long as you don't sweat a lot I'd say the crystal salt should last you at least half the day to the whole day. (Again, I find it depends on how much you sweat throughout the day)

I'm a woman and I used Tom's of Maine from Trader Joe's and wow, did it STING! (I thought perhaps it had to do with me shaving) I'm glad someone else had the same reaction I did. It might work for some, but evidently not for others. I'll never use it again. That was some deodorant.

Yeah, I figured Tom's of Maine would sting just like Arm and Hammer's Naturals. That stinging sensation bugged me out. Felt like alcohol on an open cut.

Tom's did not work for me. In a few hours, I smelled like I forgot to shower for a week. I sweat a lot though.

Walgreens. Burts bees products are available there and they have a very good rap . I have tried the salt deodorant, and it will last you long, but you still have to use it every day. It says it lasts up to a year, and it might be so. You will know to replace it though when it starts cracking into pieces on its own even though it wont be very little. Also, the salt deodorant sometimes falls out of the container and you have to keep placing it in and messing with it every time that you use it. Thats the only annoying thing, other than that, the product is fine.
