My Experience Using The Product & Do I Recommend

I started using this in the hottest part of this summer. It was in the mid-90s with high humidity, and it held up and staved off underarm stink for me. So, it did its job through my routine ten-hour shift work at my full-time job of manual labor in a factory.

This is the lightest deodorant I have ever applied to my armpits. It just goes on super easy and clear. I can’t stress this enough. It’s probably the smoothest application I have ever experienced. Seriously, it is so easy!!! There is zero stickiness or staining of clothes. I wear black T-shirts at work and never have any white stains on my armpits after using O+A.

I like all the scents, and nothing makes me hate them. The scents are also skin scents, meaning they don’t project into your environment like colognes. I’m not too fond of deodorants that act like cologne. Thankfully, none of that is here. Scents, for me are pretty light (which I prefer) and stick around for roughly about 6 to 8 hours.

The scents I would say are unisex and I would proudly wear any of these anywhere. They all smell pretty natural overall. Another pet peeve of mine is unnatural fragrances in deodorants, but O+A also passes the mustard on this.

My favorite scents from their line are Deep Sea Glacier and California Coast, and my top favorite is Fresh Ocean Splash.


I love Oars + Alps deodorant!!! It’s a great deodorant. Here is why…

This is an excellent deodorant with great ingredients, performance, and quality scents. I have used deodorants that last longer, but they come with worse ingredients and stronger scents.

Their prices are very reasonable when you also factor in that a stick of this deodorant should last a very long. It is a hard-density deodorant that lasts much longer than soft or medium-density deodorants. An important factor to consider and something I’ve noticed from reviewing a lot of deodorants.

It’s one of the best products I have ever used to apply, and I feel like you’re not using any deodorant. It is smooth, slick, and light.

I highly recommend Oars & Alps Deodorant!!! Give them a try if you are looking for a new deodorant.

Pros & Cons


  • Long lifespan!!! You will not have to buy a new deodorant anytime soon as this is a hard-density deodorant and should last longer than medium- or soft-density deodorants.
  • Decent scents. I generally liked all of the scents. None of the scents smelled terrible, and I would be happy to wear any of them—also very natural-smelling deodorants.
  • Skin scent!!! I require any deodorant I buy to be a skin scent and not project away from my body. The scent stays close to the skin. I hate it when deodorant is like cologne.
  • Unisex scents. Any man or woman can wear any of these scents.
  • Quality deodorant dispensers. They work very well and feel great in your hand. It feels better than most of the other brands.
  • Decent price for a quality deodorant.
  • Great selection of scents.
  • Oars + Alps has three allergen-free fragrances for sensitive skin: Mandarin Woods, Deep Sea Glacier, and Unscented with Prebiotics.
  • 30 day guarantee.
  • I experienced zero skin irritation while using this product over a two-week period.
  • It is super easy to apply to the skin. It has a slickness to it and makes it effortless to apply. One of the best deodorants I have tried for ease of application!!!
  • There is no staining of clothes, and it goes on clear.
  • Here where I live, I tested this during the hottest days of the year, and the Oars + Alps held up on this brutal heat we had (in the mid-90s with high humidity).
  • Cruelty-free. Never tested on animals.
  • All deodorants are vegan.
  • Oars + Alps offers a subscription service which is a great way to always have the product on hand.
  • Great list of ingredients!!!
  • No aluminum.
  • No baking soda.
  • No alcohol.
  • No parabens.
  • No sulfates.
  • No phthalates.
  • No talc.
  • On the Oars + Alps website, you can hover over each ingredient on the individual list of ingredients, and it will give you more details about it. I love this feature and wish more websites would do this. It is excellent for understanding the ingredients and not just showing a bunch of scientific names (which nobody knows anyway).
  • They have a rewards program, and you receive 2X the points if you subscribe.


  • The scent does go away after a while, but it still protects against the stink. The scents disappear around the 6 to 8-hour mark for me. Your mileage may vary.
  • It would be nice to have a slight reduction in price if you subscribe to have their deodorant sent to you regularly. Most websites do this.

How Does This Compare To Other Deodorants

This ranks at the top of the line when I mentally compare it to the many other deodorants I have used and reviewed. Quality ingredients, very decent protection, and pleasing scents. But where this reigns supreme over other deodorants is its longevity in that it will last a long time, and you will not have to constantly buy a new deodorant stick.

Other Deodorants Worth Looking At

Native Deodorant – They have one of the most extensive lineups of scents available. Surely, something will catch your eye, but I highly recommend their Coconut Vanilla Deodorant. IMHO, it is their best scent!!!. Oh, and they have excellent protection and a great list of ingredients.

Pete & Pedro Deodorant – This is quite different from Native Deodorant above as they only have one scent, but…that scent is truly amazing. It is a fresh scent comprised of eucalyptus and spearmint. It’s one of the best I have smelt.

The Final Shave – Oars + Alps Deodorant Review Wrap-Up

A hard-density stick of deodorant from Oars + Alps should last a lot longer than softer deodorants from other brands. It is how things work, as softer deodorants apply more product to your skin, and often, too much product is applied. Thankfully not the case here with Oars + Alps deodorant.

So, in this Oars + Alps Deodorant review, I hope I laid out both the positives and negatives to help you determine if this is potentially for you. I know this is a great deodorant, and hopefully, you will find it is, too. The only thing is that scents are a highly personal preference, but I have recommended my favorites, which should help.

Highly recommend giving them a try!!!
