Mando Deodorant Review – The Most Powerful Deodorant – 72 Hours Of Protection?

Long Lasting Whole Body Deodorant

I love finding unique grooming products to use and review, and today is one of those different products. In this Mando Deodorant Review – Does It Work? I will be going over why this is pushing the boundaries in the world of deodorants and helping you determine if it is a product you should buy.

I enjoy helping people by presenting a product’s positives and negatives to help them make informed decisions.

Full Disclosure

I bought the three deodorants in the picture below with my own money. I am not affiliated with Mando. I am affiliated with Amazon and make a commission on purchases through links on my site.

What Is Mando Deodorant?

Mando claims it has Super Hero status in the form of odor protection of 72 hours. So, essentially, three days of protection from odor.

Wow! That is a lot. Mando’s deodorant is clinically proven to block body odor all day and continues to control odor for 72 hours.

It also states that it can be used on multiple body areas. Places like armpits, ball sack, butt crack, inner thighs, feet, or anywhere else you have an odor that you don’t want.

This is why I think Mando is very unique. I have often seen deodorants claim 24-hour protection but have never seen 72-hour protection.

Mando Deodorant comes in the standard 2.6-ounce underarm deodorant dispensers but can also be purchased as a cream in 8.5 ounces.

What Scents Are Available?

You have four scents to choose from, Mando.

  • MT FUJI – Cool, peppery green leaf, eucalyptus, citrus, cedarwood, and wild mint.
  • BOURBON LEATHER – Warm leather with bourbon vanilla.
  • PRO SPORT – Freshwater elements with a blend of citrus (mandarin, lemon, and lime).
  • Unscented – This was recently added to their lineup (7/13/23), and glad to see this.

How Well Does It Work? Do I Recommend It?

Odor Protection

As far as odor protection, this works great. I went two days without washing it off, and it was still doing its job with no signs of letting up. I did not try the 72 hours, though, as I like taking showers and being clean. That, to me, is a little too long for me to go.

The deodorant is soft, and it applies evenly and smoothly. I have noticed that I go through softer deodorants much quicker than harder deodorants. I have only used this deodorant for two weeks, so I can’t say.

Scent Profile & Scent Projection

After wearing these three deodorants for two weeks, I only really liked one of the three scents – Pro Sport is the winner in my book. Maybe the other scents are more appealing to you, and I could easily conceive that point. As it often comes down to personal preference.

Pro Sport has a very clean and refreshing scent that doesn’t overload my sense of smell as much as the other two. This doesn’t project into your environment as much as the other scents do. I prefer skin scents as opposed to scents that project to a few feet around your body.

Bourbon Leather is blended very well and has a lovely leather scent that is better than some leather-scented colognes I own. I enjoy the leather scent but have a personal aversion to alcohol scents. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy my social lubricating drinks; I don’t like wearing them. If you are a fan of quality leather scents, get this.

I initially loved MT FUJI, but after a few hours of wearing it, I was burnt out. It has a unique scent profile that blends well but projects too much for my taste.

Unscented was recently launched on 7-13-23 and is a welcomed addition to their lineup of scents. I haven’t tried it, but I plan on purchasing this and giving it a go as I love the protection, but the other scents project too much and are strong-smelling. It is an excellent addition for sensitive skin, making it a better purchase option. I will update you when I get this scent, but I assume this formula has no scent.

Overall

The odor protection provided by Mando is terrific and would be hard to beat. I wished the scents didn’t project into my immediate area so much. It doesn’t project across the room, but a couple of feet for sure. Thankfully, they just added an unscented version.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Options baby!!! Stick or cream. You can purchase a regular deodorant stick or a deodorant cream to apply to your body. Since this is a whole-body deodorant applied to specific areas like your feet or groin area, it might be easier to buy the cream.
  • Aluminum-free.
  • Paraben-free.
  • Baking soda free. Some people have a problem with baking soda on their skin. I do not.
  • The plastic dispenser is made from 95% post-consumer recycled plastic. Earth friendly.
  • Deodorant glides on smoothly and evenly.
  • Vegan & cruelty-free.
  • Doesn’t stain clothes. I wear black T-shirts at work and have never experienced staining on my clothes from this deodorant.
  • It is a great deodorant to have on hand or use when traveling, camping, or anytime you are unsure when your next shower is coming.
  • Has anti-chaffing properties.
  • They offer an unscented version now. They recently added it, and I love that they offer this, as I find the other scents too strong and projecting. It is also for people with sensitive skin.

Cons

  • Expensive. They were going towards the high end of what most deodorants cost. But with that added level of protection, it is possibly worth it.
  • I’m not a fan of every scent they have, as I’m not too fond of the Bourbon Leather scent. I don’t prefer smelling like alcohol. Although I wouldn’t say I like this particular scent, it is still a quality scent that is complex and well-blended. It is just not my bag…baby.
  • Scent projection. The scent projects from your body, and I don’t enjoy this aspect of this deodorant. I prefer a skin scent that doesn’t remind me and others around me of what I am wearing. I like flying low under the radar…unnoticed.
  • Not the best list of ingredients. I am not a chemist or play one on TV, but many chemicals are in the ingredients list. So, if naturality is your game, I would search elsewhere.
  • Limited scents. There are only three scents available at the time of writing this.
  • A soft deodorant doesn’t last as long as a hard deodorant does.
  • People have complained of skin irritations from using this product. I even commented on this particular page down below in the comment section. I did not experience any problems myself, but they are worthy of note.

Tips & Questions

Who Makes Mando Deodorant?

Mando Deodorant is made by Lume Deodorant, which was founded by Shannon Klingman, M.D. Lume is focused on female grooming products, and Mando is just a separate company focused on men’s grooming products.

The Final Shave On Mando Deodorant Review

I am very particular about the scents I wear on my body. I judge on these merits, but I also understand other people have different preferences. In this Mando Deodorant review, I have found some of the scents enjoyable, but the scent projection on some is too much for me to handle.

Their recent addition of Mando Unscented is a game changer for me. I’d rather have no scent than the other overpowering scents from their lineup.

This is an excellent product for those people who can’t regularly shower or have other problems that need addressing. Still, it would also make an excellent everyday deodorant for your pits.

This is a high-priced deodorant, but you get 72 hours of protection. You’ll have to decide if it is worth that level of protection. I love the versatility of Mando as it can be applied to many areas of the body. Makes a great camping or traveling deodorant. Solid performance!!!

    • That doesn’t sound good, hopefully, it clears up fast for you. I know everybody’s skin is different and can react differently. Have you had this reaction before to other deodorants? I didn’t experience any skin problems using this deodorant maybe you are allergic to a certain ingredient. Thanks for sharing your experience Joe.

      • I used it as well and I have broke out with a horrible rash. I thought it was jock itch but it’s not. It’s from Mando. Please figure out what ingredient is doing this.

        • Matt,
          Sorry to hear you have a rash from using Mando and thanks for sharing your experience. I would reach out to Mando and let them know of your experience using the product, they might reimburse you. Actually, they have a 60 day money back guarantee as I just looked on their website. Did you use the deodorant or the cream? They don’t have the most natural deodorant and they claim to have the longest lasting deodorant, so to me I would think they would have more people having reaction to their product. As you are the second person to comment on having a problem with Mando. I didn’t experience any problems personally, but everybody is different and has different reactions. Hope this helps you out.

        • I’ve been reading reviews for the men(Mando) & women’s (Lume) lines. It’s interesting that you and a few others have mentioned the rash. The new scents/blends have some ingredients that I think(not that I’m anyone special) they need to remove. The main one is **ozokerite** and it’s in every solid. The other products don’t have it, except 1 Lume cream stick. All the other cream products(tubes&stick), body wash/bar soap, and wipes are free of the ingredient. I got my information from an app called Yuka, you have to make a small donation to be able to scan products, I think I paid 8.99 back in 2021 or something. I have the premium 18.49 for the year. Honestly, after reading about ozokerite, I’m trying to figure out a way to let them know it’s dangerous. Maybe this info will help someone who had a negative reaction. If they end up reaching out to Mando/Lume for a refund.

          • Elizabeth,
            Thanks for sharing your research as I think this would definitely help someone make a proper decision. I haven’t researched ozokerite yet. There could be a whole list of what is causing rashes, often times it could be the fragrance. As fragrance is a generic term that could be thousand of different chemicals or essential oils and companies keep this a secret (often times) and just use the term “fragrance” in the ingredient list. I would recommend that you reach out to Mando and ask about it. Never heard of Yuka app but sounds like a pretty handy app for people looking to find out more about a product.
            Thanks!

      • Brittney,
        That could be a problem for some people, as you could over apply it being most peoples habits is to put deodorant on daily. A really good point.

    • No, Harry’s does not stain shirts. I typically wear black T-shirts and I have experienced zero staining from Harry’s or Mando. Plus Harry’s Deodorant doesn’t project scent like Mando does, the scent stays close to your skin. Hope this helps Anthony.

  1. I just received my beginners box and it was going to be a gift, but all the items were just thrown in a box and I happen to live in Florida, which it’s still about 94° outside but it was left in the mailbox, which is definitely hotter and the items seem to be not in great condition and they’re very hot, not very satisfied or happy about this order-I do have a picture if there’s somewhere to show one

  2. I researched okerite in the NLM PubMed journal database. In a chemistry search, okerite is described as a naturally-occurring hydrocarbon wax. While some sites said it was “safe”, the PubMed search turned up this paper:’

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23380203/#:~:text=In%20the%20carcinogenicity%20study%2C%20the,to%20a%20foreign%20body%20response.

    Note that this carcinogenicity was in rats as I don’t think there is enough data on human exposure risks.

      Thank you for sharing this interesting link. I sure someone else will find this helpful. I always find the information is very muddy to decipher properly.
