Glossier’s simplistic, clean girl-friendly approach to beauty has long been adored for delivering maximum skincare-for-your-body, with minimal effort. For the brand’s latest innovation, Glossier has extended its product line by taking a spin on traditional deodorant for optimal day-to-day use.
Glossier Deodorant was formulated with sensitive pits in mind. With no aluminum, baking soda, acids, or water included, the deodorant’s hero ingredients were designed to condition your underarms and absorb excess moisture—keeping sweaty underarms at bay.

The refillable twist-up stick by Glossier is easy on your body and the earth with its recyclable and reusable features; making this a product you don’t toss after the first use, but instead lives within your beauty regimen. Once your deodorant stick is finished, recycle it and pop in a new Refill Stick with your scent of choice.
Making the switch from a natural deodorant could be a swap that you didn’t know you needed in your life.
According to New York City Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Howard-Verović, understanding the difference between antiperspirants and deodorants is key to finding what works best for you and your body. “Antiperspirants are formulated with ingredients to block the sweat duct, therefore, decreasing sweat,” she tells xoNecole. “Deodorants are typically formulated with ingredients to absorb sweat and minimize odor.” In other words, it’s okay to sweat, but you want to smell good while doing it.

Traditional antiperspirants can cause bad odors, irritate the skin, and disrupt the skin’s pH level. Glossier’s Deodorant line makes a statement through key ingredients that do the body good.
From the nourishing superfruit elderberry extract and coconut oil that keeps your underarm skin conditioned and helps to reduce odors to the extra-absorbant potato starch, and magnesium hydroxide, a pH-adjuster that helps reduce those dreaded sweat stains, you’ll feel fresher, for longer.
The dermatologist-tested, vegan, cruelty-free, line proves to be a great option for anyone looking to stay fresh and dry all day. As Dr. Howard shares, “This is a great option for people who prefer to use a deodorant with ingredients to condition the skin at the same time.”
“The underarm skin is very delicate and prone to irritation. In deeper-pigmented skin, irritation may lead to pigmentation changes. It is always best to choose personal care products formulated with skin health in mind,” she continues.

In regards to the smell, there’s a variety of three scents to choose from to suit your preference, including an ‘Unscented’ option. Choose from the warm, cult-favorite ‘Glossier You,’ a Big Sur-inspired, ‘Sandstone,’ and ‘Orange Blossom Neroli’ for a spa-day-like fragrance experience.
Because the scents come with a subtle, perfumy aroma, Dr. Howard shares her favorite scent from the line and suggests considering your lifestyle when determining which scent is best for you. “The orange blossom neroli, by far, [is my favorite]. I love fresh citrus scents especially since I am in a clinical setting all day,” she says. “I love that the Glosser team created an unscented option for those who are sensitive to fragrances.”
So what’s the verdict? After trying out the new deodorant, I can say that I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved the product. As someone who already uses the Glossier ‘You’ perfume on a daily basis, having the deodorant in the same scent served as the perfect compliment. While I may not use the deodorant for activities that require a little more exertion such as my morning walks or Pilates routines, I do see myself reaching for it on occasions like going out on the town, a trip to the coffee shop, running errands, and to feel extra nice during a date night.
If you’re looking to make the switch from traditional antiperspirants to an aluminum-free, conditioning, natural deodorant, Glossier Deodorant is worth the grab.
