PitRok Crystal Mens Fragranced Deodorant Spray Review:

First things first: I was initially concerned that PitRok Crystal would be a solid block of crystal like the 12th Doctor’s pocket watch (ahem). Thankfully, it was not, it was a standard aerosol deodorant can. Did it work? Yep it did, and it did it fairly quickly. I found that a quick spray on the pits was enough to eliminate odours for the day. This is down to the absence of propylene glycol (a common irritant) in the formula. If one applies enough deodorant, one MAY be able to eliminate odours for several days (or even a week), just listen to your armpits for the next few days. I have noticed that the smell, while not unpleasant, is not the greatest thing to smell either. I believe this is due to the absence of propylene glycol, a common ingredient in aerosol cans that are designed to make the deodorant smell a certain way.

PitRok Crystal is not tested on animals, it is vegan friendly and can be used by vegetarians. This is an important factor for me as I would prefer to use deodorants that are not tested on animals and I am a vegetarian. Pitrok Crystal is not paraben free, however they have avoided other common offenders such as aluminim, aluminium chlorohydrate and zirconium as well as ingredients such as propylene glycol. I feel this makes PitRok Crystal a worthwhile product even though it is not vegan or paraben free.

PitRok Crystal Mens Fragranced Deodorant Spray Review:

One thing I am a little disappointed in is the scent, Crystal, as it is a little bland (if you select Crystal). It might be the pump action deodorant can but I’m not sure. I also wonder if the scent is the same in roll on deodorants. I have tried the Natural Lavender and found it to smell amazing.

PitRok Crystal is relatively cost effective when compared with leading brands. The Natural Lavender aroma of the PitRok Crystal is the same price as Crystal because it is a smaller bottle, however the scent is much, much stronger and more noticeable than Crystal and has a better longevity in my opinion. This is something I’m looking to use more regularly and I think PitRok Crystal might have just won the battle in the deodorant wars.

PitRok Men’s Fragranced Deodorant Spray “100ml”

100% satisfaction! Keeps you smelling good while keeping your skin free of irritants.

125 grams of the best crystal and natural mineral salts

No Aluminum Chlorohydrate, Aluminum Zirconium, Propylene Glycol, Parabens, SLS/SLES, Silicone, or Animal ingredients

The product is dispensed fairly quickly, but this did not seem to be a problem. This can is not likely to be squirreled away in a backpack because it will not work well under those circumstances. Instead it is better suited to a home, or for keeping in your locker/garage stall. One must remember that the product is not scentless, it has a scent and it will not be appealing for those who wish to wear their deodorant under their favourite scented cologne or perfume.

If you are someone who has sensitive skin or wishes to avoid aluminums, propylene glycol and paraben-based deodorants, PitRok Crystal is there for you. At the end of the day, I refuse to encourage people to wear fragrances that they know are bad for them. 13 year olds wearing Axe are the sort of person I do not wish to encourage. They are the sort of person that will drive prices up to an extravagant sum because they will purchase several different kinds. Now I must state that I really like the smell of PitRok Crystal, it is a pleasant smell for me. I am sure other people will decide differently. The product is fairly inexpensive to buy. I would not mind an unscented version but I cannot find data on the ingredient sheet to verify if it exists or not. On a side note if you ever lose your keys and need to clean you smelly pits, PitRok Crystal also makes an excellent product for removing permanent marker as well as lipstick stains!

PitRok Crystal is a high quality product that can be used by those who are interested in saving money, and eliminating the possibility of propylene glycol, amongst other common chemicals, from entering their bodies. While PitRok Crystal is not chemically the best out there, it uses natural minerals to provide anti-perspirant protection. One can even use PitRok Crystal by itself in a pinch if they are looking for a quick fix.

PitRok Crystal Mens Fragranced Deodorant Spray Review:

There is some confusion with regards to the bio-engineering used in the production of PitRok Crystal. This doesn’t make the product itself, but the packaging. There is no bio engineering on the product itself. This is because PitRok Crystal is produced in the United States, so all labeling must be in English. The only words in PitRok Crystal packaging that are not in English are the words “naturel” and “naturwissenschaften”. One must remember that PitRok Crystal is produced in Europe. The proper German translation for both words is “natural” and “natural science” respectively.
