I just LOVE using this product, Orange Grove is my favorite. I follow the daily routine with the brass spatula and apply the deodorant balm immediately after showering or bathing. When I blow dry my hair the hot air wafts the fragrance around and provides a nice fresh aromatic finish to my grooming - who couldn't love this product?
Plastic free packaging to the last detail. The lid leaks a tiny bit of oil but small price to pay for truly plastic free experience. My only feedback would be to make the packaging fit through a standard postbox
Ok, so I’m a big guy, and I’m doing pretty well in the body hair department too, so sweat happens. This is made even worse by the fact that I have to wear light blue uniform shirts for work (and they’re poly cotton:( ).
So for the last 10 years or so I’ve been really paranoid of being the guy with a dab on in the office! I’ve tried loads of stuff, including some of the harsher ones and they either do nothing or end up irritating the skin.
So after hearing about AKT I thought I’d give it a go as I had nothing else to lose.
Oh, my God, it’s awesome! It’s easy to apply, you don’t have to wait as it an age for it to dry, the scent is pleasant and lasts ages and most of all even in our roasting hot office no wet patches! It’s amazing!
no more mass produced, plastic contained, chemical heavy deo for me, This is my brand now. Its so good on every level. delighted. its so rare to find a product that over delivers like this does.
For my 2nd order from AKT I chose The Onsen. Wearing it makes me feel fresh, vibrant, awake and ready for the day ahead.
Amazing product, keeps you feeling lovely all day!
My big test for it will be it gets hot during the summer!
Well done tho 👍🏻
Really glad I decided to try this deodorant. It works as described, I have the satisfaction of knowing I'm not applying anything harmful to my skin and also like the scent.
This product really does the job and without chemicals!
I liked the original test product but loving the launched product. Currently using Orange Grove and its smells lovely. Have the other two to try eventually. A little goes along way and I recommend getting the applicator. I've also noticed my under arm skin is smoother and clearer. Sounds funny saying that about my armpits but it's true! :D
Will definitely buy again.
this is the first all natural deodorant that actually works. it doesn't mark up your clothes with white and a bonus is it makes your underarms smoother! I bought the orange and the blue. to be honest I can't use the blue I gave it away the smell doesn't work for me but the one in the orange tube is absolutely perfect. I will definitely be buying more!
I had already tested a few “natural” deodorant in the past, but none of them convinced me. So I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical when trying AKT… But after a couple of days I got used to it and within a week I was convinced, and since then, I love it!
I love this deodorant balm and all that it stands for i e health and well being and being good for the planet
Honestly, it has changed my life! It's such a great feeling to be able to pick up a t-shirt the next day after going for it on the dancefloor at a club and the underarms of the garment smell clean with a hint of the deodorant's scent... that's a true test of putting a product like this through its paces for me. I bought myself all three, it's been about a month and I'm still only halfway through the first tube (Orange Grove) and I wouldn't go anywhere without it, it's my secret armour and allows me to never worry that I smell anything less than perfect.
This is my second purchase of orange grove just love it. Smells define and yes it works. I have all of the three fragrance but I’m loving orange grove. I have psoriasis but this balm does not irritate and has no nasties .Prompt delivery to.
After thunder is by far my favourite scent of the three. I am pleased to find that they work slightly as an antiperspirant as well (I work in a hospital in what feels like 250 degree heat).
The longest lasting natural deodorant that I've used.
I work in a very busy A&E department and usually have to keep extra deodorant in my locker to freshen up about halfway through my shift ... but no longer. I stay fresh and smelling great all day long with AKT I can’t wait to try all the scents. Thank you guys don’t stop with just this we need more creators like you!!
I'm really enjoying my purple-blue tube! As y'all promised, it WORKS & I smell great. The ethics of caring for the environment with AKT products is also important. 3 cheers for AKT from the USA!
I think their products are amazing! There was a problem with delivery and the guys took care of my request instantly! Highly recommended!
Love the concept and ethics behind this product just as much as I love the product itself. The scents are all lovely and I even use it on my thick hair to calm the frizz! Thanks chaps x
The stuff just works - which is surprising given that it has no aluminum in it. There is a fancy applicator, but I found it more convenient just to put a bit on my fingertips and rub in. The scent is mature (not like Axe/Lynx) .
I really struggle to feel like I'm staying fresh during the day and constantly have to reapply deodrant. But I haven't had to at all while wearing this, even on a day where I'm sweating far more than usual. The smell is really pleasant and lasts throughout most of the day. Even at the end of a lond day, my underarms smelt neutral with a hint of scent still. I love the packaging & design too, and also love that it's gender neutral. It may be slightly pricey, but I think for the product quality and environmentally friendly factor it's so worth it. Plus one tube will last ages!
I lost my sense of smell due to a head injury 6 months ago, so safe to say it is so great to have people tell you that ‘you smell great‘ all the time!
I may not know what it smells like, but I know I smell good thanks for AKT
Was very excited to get my AKT and popped open all 3 fragrances in one go! Pleased to report that after 2 weeks of use, AKT is consistently great in hot and humid weather (I live in Singapore, 30 degrees, 100% humidity).
Really lovely product, easy to apply, absorbs great. Love the fragrance of “after thunder” so much!
Would love to see a fragrance free product at some point too!
I don’t know how I survived before AKT came into my life. Spray deodorants wouldn’t keep up with my active, on the go life style and it was such a struggle. AKT is long lasting, fresh and smells great! FINALLY a deodorant that gives you 24 hour coverage.
Having watched the journey of Akt it’s great to finally be using it. Amazing product that does everything you want in a deodorant. The guys have smashed it out of the park with this.
After years of using various types of sprays, I thought I'd give this a go on a whim, having seen one of the founders talk about it on Instagram.
I ordered the After Thunder deodorant and tested it by wearing it in various situations, such as a 90-minute dance class, a full day in the office at work, commuting on the Central line (famously sweaty!) and going to the gym. In all those situations the deodorant held and I came out not smelling sweaty at all and still smelling of the deodorant (which is itself not a particularly overpowering smell). It worked perfectly and I've already ordered the Orange Grove deodorant.
I am obsessed with this product - as a dancer this has seen me through classes and on holiday it was Incredible - I shan’t be using anything else!
For the past year (or at least since I ran out of the AKT trial run product), I have smelled absolutely awful. No deodorant worked for me and I felt hopelessly lost in the fog of my stench. This deodorant works like absolute magic. I put it on and I know that for the rest of the day I will have the confidence to lift my arms high into the sky and sing praises to the world. I cannot recommend this product enough. I mean, it saves the world as well as saving you from harrowing body odor - what else could you want in life?
I got the After Thunder fragrance which smells divine and I genuinely smell fresh the whole day, this includes after a two show day performing on stage... Recommend to anyone with a busy, active life!
Absolutely love this. Most deodorants without the nasties like aluminium are normally pretty poor, not this it’s great!
I received my deodorants at the beginning of January (shipped by registered post to Greece, very good service) and I have been using Orange Grove for the last three weeks. It really does live up to the hype and I am very pleased with it. I don’t have an applicator so just apply with my fingers – no problem at all. It goes on smoothly, smells divine and leaves me feeling very fresh. Because it is absorbed immediately, you don’t have to wait for it to dry before putting your clothes on, so no risk of messy white lines or stickiness if the deodorant hasn’t dried. My armpits feel fresh all day and into the evening, even when I have dance class. Very impressed with the product. Well done. I still have After Thunder to try and, when these are finished, will be ordering Onsen to try that out too.
I've been using Orange Grove for the last month and I've found it to work really well. Plus it smells amazing. I've not used the applicator and not really sure why you would need it. I'm off to buy the Onsen version now to give that a whirl.
Love the scent plus its a really effective, long lasting deodrant. I've found it easy to apply using my fingers. Only issue is that the cap on the tube is v small and leaks. It seeps an oily residue. But it's easy to clean up. Something to improve in the next version!
Hi AKT...Originally, I ordered an applicator and 1-2 month supply (1 tube of After Thunder) and, after a long time waiting for them, the wait was definitely worth it! The balm smells fresh, and the scent is very original and unique and doesn't overpower you, I can use it everyday when I'm in work, and it also smells formal enough to also wear it on nights out and weekends. I work in a warehouse, wearing thick clothing and lifting and dragging very heavy objects around, and I'm on my feet working up a sweat for nearly 9 hours a day - and since using AKT, it genuinely makes my body stay fresh smelling, and I feel I can truly rely on it to work and it does. I also bought a tube of Orange Grove and the scent is more refreshing and is just as good as keeping me feeling good and confident. I've never had a problem with the tubes or the quality of the paste.
I now particularly enjoy the 'ritual' aspect of using the applicator - using it to massage the neck area - after washing the applicator with warm water and soap, I like to use it on my neck, and it feels good and I assume is doing what it claims. And admittedly it took a couple of goes to get the hang of applying the balm on my body, but now I love using it.
The only slight bit of criticism I have is that I'm a bit sceptical about only 'a pea size' amount being sufficient for your whole body...so I use two small blobs for each side of my body. I've still got a long way to go before I come to the end of my tubes and I'm not sure how much of the paste I'll be able to squeeze out....so maybe in the future you could introduce a 'key' that people could use to roll the tube and get all the balm out - and have a piercing pointy end to use on new tubes! I love the original concept and intention behind AKT, with two West End stage performers behind it, and after putting on either of the 2 balms, it's definitely the closest I'll ever get to appearing on a London stage (!)
I was actually expecting the product to be good given the amazing reviews it has, but I thought they were probably exaggerating it a little bit, it was impossible to be that good. To my surprise, it actually is. I haven’t had a deodorant that last for this long in my life, even after a busy day at work or a long flight, it’s still kicking. I’ve recommended the product to friends and family, absolutely worth the price!
I usually struggle to find a good deodorant as I tend to get a reaction from most store bought ones, but this is perfect. Smells amazing, lasts all day and all natural so no issues with weird chemicals or alcohols. Brilliant stuff, will use it now and forever more!
In what seemed like a wait that lasted forever shortly before Christmas my package finally arrived and the delays were more than worth it. This product is by far the most unique and nicest smelling deodorant I have used ... It is lasting full days and is nice and smooth and easy to applicate with no mess or stickiness as I would have imagined upon opening it.
Well worth the money and you’re helping the planet! Winning.
I bought one of each fregrances and my favourite one is 'orange grove'. Although all tree smell nice and most important all work perfectly. Can't believe there is finally deodorant that is natural and really truely WORKS! Amazing! Will have to order it again soon as my sister are now stealing mine :)
The best natural deodorant I have tried. I love all 3 scents, but Orange Grove is my all time favourite. The formula works - I work as a fitness instructor as AKT keeps BO at bay all day. I love it.
Wonderful product and throughly put through its paces on a cycling holiday in humidity and 35 degs. 🍊 fragrance lovely yet not overpowering. Would definitely recommend.
This deodorant is lovely, both the smell and the way it feels on you skin. I have been using more natural deodorants for a while now and this is definitely the best I have used. Would recommend to all!
Really easy to use - smells amazing, and works. I wouldn't bother with the applicator - I just put it on with my fingertips and then moisturise afterwards, so any residual deodorant mixes with my body moisturiser. Really excellent product.
I've put all 3 of the variants of this deodorant balm through their paces over the last 2 weeks, onstage & off if I might so put it. All came through with flying colours. Best deodorant stuff I've used. OK, they're a bit expensive but they are worth it for the results. You get what you pay for & this balm is worth it. And it's good for the environment. And the applicator is fantastic. Well done, guys!!
