Shoppers struggling with sweaty, smelly underarms have been turning to this award-winning natural deodorant, claiming it’s ‘the best deodorant I’ve ever used’.

AKT deodorant, coined a ‘miracle’ product by impressed reviewers, is a premium and celebrity-approved deodorant balm designed using fine fragrances and zero aluminium to keep you feeling dry and smelling great all day long.

If you’re looking to try AKT’s natural deodorant out for yourself, then The Starter Set is the perfect place to start. 

Featuring The Deodorant Balm in the fragrance of your choice and an Assistant to help ensure you get every last bit of balm out, this high performing, award-winning natural deodorant balm is set to keep you dry and odourless all day long.

Keeping your underarms dry and smelling fresh can be quite the mean feat – especially heading into the warmer summer months. 

And when antiperspirant sprays and aluminium-packed roll-ons don’t keep unpleasant smells at bay as well as they used to, you need something strong yet natural that won’t harm your skin.

This natural deodorant balm from AKT London has been formulated without pore-blocking aluminium like many standard deodorants, instead utilising natural ingredients that work to moisturise the skin while eliminating odours and keeping you dry and fresh all day.

This is all thanks to the brand’s unique formulation – the Deo-Barrier Complex, Andy Coxon, Co-Founder of AKT London explains.

This clever complex is ‘a blend of natural minerals, powders and waxes that rest invisibly on the skin to absorb moisture without blocking your pores. It cleanses the skin, deodorises your sweat and keeps you feeling dry and protected with one application.’

Coming in the form of a moisturising balm, AKT easily glides onto the skin (the brand recommends applying a pea-sized amount to clean underarms each day), quickly absorbing into the skin to provide hydration and nourishment without greasiness or wetness like traditional deodorants.

This means there’s zero transferring, zero crustiness left on clothes, and zero yellow or white stains.

The scents include SC.01 Orange Grove, SC.02 After Thunder, SC.03 The Onsen, SC.04 Halycon Summers. SC.05 Columbia Road, SC.00 No Notes

‘I’ve been using AKT for nearly four years now and would never consider changing,’ raved one five-star reviewer. ‘It’s the best deodorant I have ever used and effective in all climates. Gone are the days of worrying about odour and yellowing of clothes.’

Not only does the balm help to keep sweat and smells at bay, but it also provides sophisticated fragrance to keep you smelling gorgeous all day long.

Collaborating with leading experts in fragrance to curate each deodorant balm like a fine fragrance, the brand have designed each scent as a ‘scene’ as a homage to their theatre roots.

These include SC.01 Orange Grove, SC.02 After Thunder, and a stunning fragrance for the warmer months, SC.04 Halycon Summers – a mint, pomelo and tomato vine blend that that sends me straight to the cobbled streets of Italy.

They’ve even got an unscented version if you’d prefer a more subtle finish.

Even better, AKT’s deodorants are all vegan, gender-neutral, and plastic-free, featuring recyclable aluminium packaging and never testing on animals.

Shoppers have been absolutely loving AKT, too – on the day they launched, they hit their target in one hour, and by the end of the month, they’d raised nearly three times their target and had 3000 orders.

Andy Coxon, co-founder of AKT even revealed: ‘We recently found out the cast of ‘Saltburn’ used it – Rosamund Pike even requested it be couriered to her hotel.’

He added: ‘The cast of the Wicked movie had it on set and Cynthia Erivo is obsessed. Fingers crossed for Ariana!’

Now, the brand have racked up over 6,000 five-star reviewers from users who say the deodorant has ‘changed my life’. 

But what do I think? Anyone that knows me knows that I can’t be without AKT now I’ve found it.

I’ve always struggled with sweat, meaning I’ve tried all the deodorants and antiperspirants on the market to find something that kept sweaty smells and moisture at bay. Rest assured, none of them worked – event the extra-strength ones.

So, when I got my hands on AKT natural deodorant I was skeptical – how could a natural deodorant help the problem countless others couldn’t?

But it did. This deodorant glides onto my skin with ease and sinks in within seconds, no white marks and no transferring. And truly, it leaves me dry and smelling subtly and sophisticatedly fragranced all day.

One tube lasts weeks and weeks, and you’ll be absolutely blown away by how fresh it leaves you feeling and smelling all day. 

For me? AKT has changed my life (not to be totally dramatic). I couldn’t recommend trying it out for yourself more if you struggle with sweat and smells.
