We've been having SERIOUSLY hot days this summer, so I'm astonished that this works so well! Odd getting used to no fragrance what-so-ever, and no film on the skin - really left me wondering if it was doing anything at all the first few time I used it! But sniff tests, by very good friends who would actually do that for me, confirmed zero body odour. Wetting slightly under basin tap and shaking off excess water for each 'pit alleviates any dripping, either under arm or onto bench. At the rate of wear (I.e. none that I can see) this stick is going to out live me, so HUGELY economical.....
