We take deodorant seriously, and so does this cult favorite clean makeup brand. That’s why the co-founder and two-time breast cancer survivor made it her goal to create a safe and effective product that performs under pressure. And perform it does — it was tested on (and approved by) rock climbers, skiers, yoga teachers and even triathletes, so you know it can handle any sweaty situation.

Turn the disc at the base of the package until small beads of deodorant are exposed. Apply to underarms and let dry.


A little goes a long way. One turn (or even half a turn!) will be enough —it’s super-concentrated and spreads evenly, so you will need only a small amount.

  • Best switch

    Jessica D. January 16, 2020

    I have been using this deodorant for a few years now and it works really well for oder and not bad for sweat too. It took a bit for my body to adjust but its been a great switch from traditional deodorants. Like others, I experienced issues with the dial. I was still able to use, but was just much harder to apply but still worth it.

  • Great Brand, but Grapefruit Sensative

    Jessica H. November 07, 2019

    I really enjoy Vapour deodorants. I think the protection is better and longer lasting than any other natural option I’ve tried. However, the Ginger-Grapefruit scent causes a red, itchy rash. Fortunately, the lavender and orange palo santo options still work wonders without the rash!

  • Fantastic!

    Tim G. September 16, 2019

    Smells nice, mess-free, and works well all day long. I’ve tried almost everything and this is top-notch.

  • Did not work for me

    Margie T. August 14, 2019

    Unfortunately for me and everyone who smelt me. It did not work for me 🙊

    • From Follain:

      Hi there! We are so sorry to hear that the AER Next-Level Deodorant was not a perfect match for you. Our team will be reaching out to you shortly so that we can help find you a product that you will love! Best, Team Follain

  • Stay Dry

    Jessica June 14, 2019

    I’ve tried a few clean deodorant brands. So far, Vapour is the best one yet. This one keeps me dry all day and works well even on gym days. I will definitely buy this again.

  • Disappointed

    Jackie May 28, 2019

    Was looking to try a new deodorant for summer that may be more intensive for the heat and more exercise and was recommended this one in the store. On numerous occasions ive had to supplement with multiple applications through the day or with another product. Similar to other users my dial on the bottom popped out and broke which is disappointing to lose some product when its so minimally filled to begin with. Ive had better luck with the 2 other dial products ive tried from follain previously

  • Works so well

    Danielle B. April 18, 2019

    Love this brand and their scents! The only natural deodorant that has worked for me. I do wish they would include more in the package.

  • Gave me a rash

    Amanda N. February 06, 2019

    This was the first natural deodorant I’ve tried so I really wanted to like it! Unfortunately, my underarm skin is very sensitive and this gave me a red, bumpy rash that went away as soon as I stopped using the deodorant. It also did not do a great job of keeping me dry, and I’m sure the sweat further irritated my skin. I’m sad I can’t use the rest of it because the grapefruit scent is so yummy!

  • Didn’t work for me

    Caroline D. January 15, 2019

    At first, I loved this. But after two weeks, I started to smell and it just didn’t work anymore for me. Tried each of the scents, but none were effective. Had to return. Was really looking forward to this product, but it just didn’t work for me. I’ve been using Routine cream now for 6+ months and it’s my go-to natural deo!

  • Best deodorant

    Erin M. January 09, 2019

    I have tried other natural deodorant and this one is by far the best; I does a great job. I sometimes have to reapply throughout the day but very seldom. A little goes a long way as well. I haven’t tried the other scents because I love the lavender so much.

  • Not the best.

    Emily B. November 25, 2018

    I’ve tried better non-toxic deodorants, honestly, and for the price of this one, I’d skip it!

  • Great product, but not enough of it!

    Carly November 20, 2018

    I LOVE this deodorant – it’s the only natural one that has worked for me. The scent is heavenly and the deodorant leaves a minimal amount of white residue. However, I wish they gave more product for the price – when you get the deodorant, the packaging is only about half full, which is quite disappointing.

  • Not worth the price

    Lesley P. November 09, 2018

    I have bought this several times and I like it. The problem is it only lasts a few weeks and at $25 a pop it’s just too expensive. Also each time I buy it the dial breaks that pushes the product up. I’ve tried it 3 times and had the same experience each time. I’m done

  • Packaging is AWFUL

    Kristina October 30, 2018

    I really like this deodorant but the packaging is so frustrating – enough to make me switch to something else. The dial pops out on the bottom which has caused me to unintentionally push out way too much product. I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me a replacement but the same issue has occurred with the second version. It’s too expensive to have even a bit of product wasted.

  • Just. The. Best.

    Sara S. October 26, 2018

    I love this deodorant, and am not ashamed to admit I carry it in my purse. It smells great, and I don’t have to worry about applying chemicals to my skin.

  • I'm a big fan

    Shannon F. October 19, 2018

    This is an excellent product! Use sparingly. It’s not cheap, but the small amount recommended is really all that you need.

  • Works but packaging could be improved

    Kayla October 06, 2018

    After a few days of using this I seemed to have a negative reaction to it with my skin getting a little red and bumpy. However I have stuck it out and seems to be doing just fine now. The dial did break on me within the first 10 days or so of using it and now I have to push it out SLOWLY to avoid pushing out too much. I think the design could probably be improved but the actual product has worked really well for me. And I love the ginger grapefruit scent!! It’s the first natural deodorant that has actually worked for me. Lasts way longer than cheaper ones I’ve tried though I still find myself reapplying toward the end of the day. Probably won’t buy again because of the packaging and it’s a little on the pricey side.

  • Horrible packaging

    Mdla September 30, 2018

    For $24 I would hope that the applicator for the deoderant would not break, but i was wrong. When there was about a half inch of product remaining in the tube, the applicator turner broke. While this product smells great when you apply it, it is simply not worth the money. It also leaks out the bottom of the stick, leaving residue at all times.

  • I would use this for the scent even if it did not work so well!

    Mollie M. September 26, 2018

    amazing soothing scent + effective. I am a loyal user.

  • Not worth the price

    Gracie B. September 16, 2018

    Schmidt’s works better and is much cheaper however this smells amazing.

  • Love the scent but had a bad reaction

    Cassie H. September 12, 2018

    The product smells great and I felt it really works! However, after wearing for a week my underarms became painfully sensitive and swollen. I didn’t realize it was the deodorant for two days so it continued to get worse. It wasn’t red or bumpy but SO PAINFUL. I finally stopped using and it went away within 24 hrs. I’m not sure if it was a reaction to baking soda possibly? I would recommmend as a good natural deodorant option if you’re not sensitive.

  • Not worth the cost

    Christine September 05, 2018

    I have been using natural deodorants for years and usually purchase soapwalla, but I’ve been looking for an alternative that’s easier to apply (a stick) and will withstand more sweat with summer and traveling around HOT Greece. I splurged on this one with all the great reviews and am sorely disappointed. It leaves white marks on EVERYTHING, even when applying the tiniest amount and just does not absorb. I also think most other natural deodorants I’ve tried have worked better. This may work for others, but $24 down the drain for me 🙁

  • Good, could be great

    Rebecca August 31, 2018

    I like, maybe even love this deodorant for what it does coverage and smell wise, compared to all other natural deodorants I’ve tried. The thing this product really needs improvement on is the packaging. One being the dial on the bottom broke, and two, when you look at how much deodorant is actually in the container, it’s only a fourth of the way full. This just seems super wasteful.

  • Smells great

    Robyn S. August 16, 2018

    I really like the lavender scent and a little goes a long way. My only con is that it doesn’t really hold up after a workout. For normal activity use it’s definitely a great deodorant!

  • Love this DEO!

    Ashlie W. August 14, 2018

    This is my new favorite deodorant. It works!

  • So far so good!

    Megan L. August 08, 2018

    I’ve tried a lot of clean deodorant brands and so far, this is my favorite. It functions like a gel, with the wheel at the bottom to push the gel out of the top. However, it’s not as slippery and weird feeling as a normal gel deodorant. It’s more thick in consistency and applies really nicely. Feels great on my underarms! I often have to apply twice in a day, but that’s likely because I sweat often and it’s been a really hot summer 🙂

  • The Holy Grail of Natural Deodorant!

    Jill August 07, 2018

    I have been on a quest through Follain’s deodorants to find a natural one that actually works for my body chemistry. I was wary of the baking soda in AER since I’d had a bad reaction to it in another brand. Two other brands without baking soda just didn’t hold up to heat and humidity. The last few weeks in Boston have been the perfect test and AER passed with flying colors! I love the Ginger/Grapefruit scent and the formula glides on smoothly and keeps odor at bay all day and even overnight. The best part is I’ve not had any problems with a rash. So happy to have found this brand. Worth every penny.

  • Just okay, bad packaging

    Brittney August 05, 2018

    This deodorant is okay, but it needs to be reapplied several times throughout the day. I’ve also noticed that my armpits periodically get red and irritated using this deodorant. My biggest complaint is with the packaging. Within a few uses the dial at the bottom broke. Thankfully Follain replaced the product with no problem, but the second stick has done the same thing. Would not buy again.

  • works well

    Mandy D. August 01, 2018

    I like this deodorant, and it seems to work well. A little goes a long way, and I’m still learning what the right amount to use is. But I haven’t had to reapply, so that’s good. I’m still not sure I like the scent, though. I’m used to unscented, but thought I’d try this out, as I love lavender. It’s fine, but I’m not sure I’d buy it again.

  • Best Deodorant Ever!!

    Stephanie G. July 25, 2018

    I’ve tried every deoderant out there, and this one is the best, hands down. I can wear it in the heat all day long, no odor. Love the scent too. Just perfect.

  • Best Natural Deodorant

    Alexa M. July 10, 2018

    I have tried them all. But only Aer delivers! Goes on smooth, never crumbles. No irritation – in fact, my skin has improved from it. Smells fantastic. The only con is the high price for small amount of product. But you know what? It’s worth it!

  • Ted M. June 28, 2018

    Mollie M. June 27, 2018

    even if it didn’t work so well would love it! the ginger grapefruit scent is clean and wonderful. the texture is so creamy and absorbs well.

  • Works well, but oily

    Rebecca L. June 19, 2018

    This deodorant works really well, almost as well as the non-natural stuff. It did however, make my underarms breakout — and after some time the stick got melty and left oil stains on my clothes (and all over my medicine cabinet!)

  • First natural deodorant I've loved!

    Erin B. June 05, 2018

    Over the past few years, I have tried a few different natural deodorants, and found them all lacking. Most left me feeling less than fresh after only a few hours. One gave me a rash. But this deodorant is a game changer. The lavender smell is amazing, and it really works all day. It’s not going to keep you fresh if you run a marathon but it’s a great deodorant for daily use.

  • Best clean deodorant I’ve tried

    Elizabeth D. May 15, 2018

    This works extremely well even in a high stress job environment. I’ve tried a number of different clean deodorants and this one is best combination of excellent odor protection for the whole day, plus non-irritating and nice smell.

  • my holy grail of natural deodorants

    Marcia R. May 03, 2018

    I tried so, so , many aluminum free deodorants. Even other brands with arrowroot and baking soda / same ingredients. This one just works the best and the scent lasts the LONGEST out of ANY of the others I have tried!!!! I wish they made a travel size, and in a stick form but I’ll take it! Amazing. I love it. The palo santo scent is my favorite. I cannot stop singing the glorious praises of the “palo santo pits”

  • Great deodorant

    Leslie H. May 02, 2018

    Love this deodorant! I was a Piperwai fan before but I think this one I love even more! Keeps me dryer than some other natural deodorants I’ve tried and I didn’t smell either.

  • Love this deodorant

    Katherine April 12, 2018

    Could not be more pleased with this deodorant! It was my first non-toxic deodorant and I will never go back. It took about three weeks for my body to get used to the deodorant, but now it works great!

  • Wanted to like it

    Reganne D. March 26, 2018

    I really wanted to like this deodorant, it smells awesome and I really like the application. BUT it does not work for me, especially when it comes to working out or anything sweaty. Even if I apply it right before. I will be going back to Piper Wei.

    P.S. no breakout, dryness, or irritation that other natural deodorants have caused so that is a plus

    • From Follain:

      Hi Reganne, oh no! Everyone’s body chemistry is different so it can be tricky finding the perfect deodorant for your body chemistry. Happy to hear you found a favorite in the Piperwai!

  • love it!

    Sheetal M. February 21, 2018

    Works well, even when I workout!

  • Best Natural Deodorant

    Barbara W. February 16, 2018

    I have tried most of the deodorants on this site and this is our family’s favorite. It does work (not as well as a toxic Mennen stick) and smells lovely. It has been hard for me making the switch to an all natural deodorant because I want to smell and feel clean all of the time. The health benefits to using this product, I feel, outweigh any feelings that it might not work as well as say a toxic brand of deodorant/anti perspirant. Maybe I need to apply more frequently. I do love it and will be buying it again and again.


    Maggie M. February 08, 2018

    I have been using all natural deodorant for about 5 years now and I’ve never come across a product that works as well as this. This here is a unicorn. A magical non toxic little gem! The scent is wonderful, the power is incredible. It almost feels wrong because I never knew I could have the power of a regular toxic filled deodorant in a wonderful all natural form. The price is expensive but honestly so worth. I hope more people buy it and they start bringing the price down because it is the best deodorant ever.

  • Product works as described

    Stephanie B. February 01, 2018

    Love this product

  • It works!

    Denise M. January 31, 2018

    I’ve tried lots of natural deodorant products. This one works! Thank you!

  • Smells great, works great

    Faye S. January 31, 2018

    I was a little skeptical at first about the effectiveness of this deodorant, but it lives up to its claims! It smells amazing and works throughout the day .


    Kristin B. January 29, 2018

    Worth the money. I am blown away by this deodorant. I sweat far less wearing this—even while doing hot yoga. It’s far more effective than mainstream, non-organic brands (and it’s so, so much better than the drugstore organic brands I was previously purchasing). And it smells SO GOOD. I purchased ginger grapefruit… It makes me happy every morning I put it on. I don’t event have to reapply. While it appears gel-like, it immediately and completely drys and it’s INVISIBLE. I’ve never had a “deodorant stain” on my clothes. I can’t say enough praise for AER. Hooked for life.

  • So far, so good!

    Jamie D. January 29, 2018

    I had a bad reaction to a natural deodorant in the past so I was nervous to try again, but after 2 weeks of using this, so far, so good! I like the smell and, although I notice I sweat more than with the toxic stuff, I don’t feel like I smell bad at all. I also like that this goes on really easily.

  • It works!

    Janine G. January 29, 2018

    I have cycled through other natural deodorants and I like how this is dispensed – I don’t have to worry about warming it up to get coverage. The only downside that I have noticed is it leaves white marks on my shirts – which has happened with other products. In the winter, I’m layering my clothes, so it’s not noticeable to anyone but me, so I may need to switch it out when the weather gets warmer. I have not had to re-apply and it controls odor. As with most natural deodorants I have used, it doesn’t do as well with controlling wetness.

  • New to deodorant

    Sarah H. January 26, 2018

    I’m very impressed with this deodorant! I’ve used antiperspirant for a long time and have been looking for a deodorant to replace my antiperspirant – this is a keeper! It smells amazing, goes on well, and I feel like I have the same level of protection. I definitely recommend trying it!

  • Deserves 12 stars

    Am January 19, 2018

    The only green beauty deodorant that is as effective as a conventional one. The smell is amazing, works so so well and does not make me miss conventional deodorants. I wish it was cheaper but it’s so good I’ll never be without it. It lasts all day no trouble. A+++


    Jenn M. January 11, 2018

    I love the way this deodorant smells, and the smell lasts a really long time. This deodorant really worked for me, at first I didn’t think it was working for wetness, but then I realized I was using too much and now it works great! I’ve been using the same one for a while now, it definitely lasts a long time.


    Brooke M. January 10, 2018

    A clean deodorant that works! I can’t say enough about this. I’m on my second one, and don’t know that I’ll ever switch! I’m obsessed with the scent of Lavender Myrrh. I love that the application feels similar to a conventional deodorant, minus the toxins. And a little really does go a long way! I usually apply 1-2x per day, and my first one lasted me 7 weeks! LOVE!
