I thought this was a great idea. A once a week application of a probiotic formula to use instead of deodorant. The idea is that it helps your body kill any germs that would smell. I thought it would work well for me since I do not have a super issue with odor. Well I was wrong. I tried this three weeks in a row to give it a good try and it just does not work at all and I do not recommend it.

What is Once a Week Deodorant: Once a Week Deodorant is a small wet wipe that is infused with a liquid containing Pio-Lactobacillus.
How it is supposed to work: The idea is that this pro biotic will kill the bacteria that causes the odor and stay in your skin layers even after showering, heavy exercise or even the use of soaps etc.
How it is applied: The Once a Week deodorant should be applied right after you have bathed or showered. You have to completely dry the skin where you are going to apply it and then blot the skin until skin is saturated. You have to allow it to dry thoroughly before putting on clothes so it does not wipe off. It is suggested that you apply it before bed. If you are applying to more than one area you might need extra pads.
Where can it be applied: According to the website you can put this on your underarms, genitals, or feet.
Where to Buy it: You can not find this in the store, you have to order it online through ebay or some other online merchants.
How well it worked
Ease of application: I followed the instructions exactly and applied Once a Week Deodorant after I showered and was dry. I used it on my underarms and used it at bedtime and laid there with my under arms exposed for 15 minutes with my ceiling fan going before I put on my pajamas to make sure it was dry. I used it three weeks in a row to make sure I was giving it time to work. It was easy enough to apply and did not have any weird smells. It just smelled like water, no perfumes or dyes or anything irritating. One pad seemed sufficient to thoroughly apply to both underarms. If you want to use it in other areas you might need more than one pad.
The results: Once a Week Deodorant worked as well as if I had used nothing at all. Even the first day I tried not using deodorant but after working in the yard I noticed a slight odor. You are supposed to shower like normal which I did and the next day I noticed the same odor came back. I tried applying it two more times on weekly intervals thinking that maybe I needed to build up a level but I never got any benefit from using this deodorant.
Final thoughts and Rating
I really wanted to love this product and am disappointed to have to conclude that it just does not work and I can not recommend it. I would have to give it only 1 star.
