For the longest time, MYRO deodorant has been popping up on my Instagram and Facebook ads, and I was hesitant in purchasing this product. After reading the many positive reviews on their site, I decided to just go for it.
MYRO is a naturally fresh deodorant, which you can choose your own refillable colored case, scent, and is a refillable by subscription. So, whenever you are out of the pods, you can choose either your original scent or a new one and it can be delivered to your home.
I ordered the Moss case with the chill wave scent on June 20th and received it on June 24th. I started trying out this deodorant on the 25th of June and stopped on July 27th. I think one month is safe to say whether you really like the product or not. Honestly, I really wanted to give this deodorant a chance, and I was so excited about it, but it really sucks to say that I have to give this deodorant a negative review.
I’ll start with the pros.
I honestly love the idea of a refillable case to reduce waste.
What’s not to love about free shipping?
You can choose when you want the next pods shipment date
From picking what color case you want, to what scent you want. There are even unscented pods available.
Vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and not tested on animals. I’ve always been super supportive on products that aren’t tested on animals, so this definitely caught my attention.
Okay, so you heard all these pros and you’re probably wondering, ‘why Melinda? Why are you going to give a negative review when all the things you’ve listed seem so positive?’ I know. I’m really upset myself that this is happening to me, but I’m an honest person. So I’ll tell you why:
Deodorant does not stay on all day
Maybe it’s because right now, I’m living in New York and it’s somewhat humid in the Summer here compared to the dry California Summer, but I swear to you, I can feel my deodorant just drip off from my armpits… which led to…
My armpits smelling
When I first applied the deodorant, it smelled so good. Fresh and so clean. But after a while, I swear when I’m just at work doing my own thing, I can just smell this unnatural scent that I’ve never smelled on my body before, and oh my god, I smell so bad that I have to bring my rose perfume and constantly spray myself from not smelling.
My armpits started peeling
After the first week of using this deodorant, I realized there were some dry, flaky skin coming off of my armpits. I thought at first, might be irritation from the shirt I was wearing that day, but I started wearing sleeveless shirts (tanks) and it kept occurring, even after I scrubbed myself clean from the shower.
Gave me a rash
Let me tell you something. I have never, ever, EVER, had any rashes EVER before on my body—except for eating something that I’m allergic to—but it never was in my armpit area. When I first started noticing that I had a rash, I thought it was irritation from my shirts that I was wearing, but when I switched to sleeveless and was still applying this deodorant, I realized it was the deodorant that was causing this irritation. My rash is now so big on my left armpit, it constantly itches and burns. I am so disappointed. Never have I ever experienced something that gave me such an allergic reaction before.
The deodorant just melts by itself from the case below
Yes, every deodorant melts from heat. But the thing is, I don’t even put my deodorant near any sun exposure or anything. It’s hidden behind my mirror in the dark. After a few days of just using it, I realized that the deodorant was leaking down below, causing me to constantly wipe the bottom of the case. Maybe it’s the humidity? Maybe my apartment is too hot? I don’t know. But a sign of the deodorant leaking from the pods is never a good sign.
If you ever tried MYRO, let me know your honest experience with it after using it for a while. I want to know your thoughts on this product. Sadly, this deodorant wasn’t for me. :/
Thanks for reading!
