This pretty stone may look like a healing crystal, but it actually belongs in your medicine cabinet. Crystal is a mineral deodorant that doubles as a beautiful stone you’ll want to display on your vanity. The stone, which retails for under $8, promises to give 24 hours of protection against underarm odor.

The so-called deodorant “stone” isn’t actually a stone; it’s a mineral salt, which is smoothed into a crystal ball. When wet and applied to underarms, the salt acts as a natural deodorant, preventing the growth of odor-causing bacteria.

When using the natural, dermatologist-tested deodorant stone, you won’t get white streaks on your shirt or annoying yellow stains under your armpits since it’s made without aluminum, paragons or fragrance.

The deodorant stone looks way more gorgeous than your average deodorant stick. You can, however, get the crystal in a roll-on, scented stick if you so prefer.

Crystal deodorant is not an antiperspirant, which means it won’t stop you from sweating. Natural antiperspirants don’t actually exist, so you’ll never find a natural deodorant that will stop you from sweating. Thankfully though, many people say that after adjusting to natural deodorant, they sweat less than they did with drugstore options.

A stone as your only deodorant may sound unbelievable, but many reviewers swear by the product. In fact, all forms of the deodorant have between 4.5 and 5 stars on the Crystal website.

“I’ve been using this for about a year now and I will never switch,” one reviewer wrote. “Not only does this last all day but it’s withstood boxing classes and ballroom competitions!!!”

Another reviewer added, “I had to stop using traditional deodorant when I started having rashes. I started using Crystal and have no rashes. I like that it has no fragrance. I have had zero body odor. Even when I get some wetness, I never smell.”

Gorgeous, effective and super cheap? What’s not to love.
