MooGoo Fresh Cream Deodorant VS Harmoni's Kiss Organic Girl Roll On

Since the beginning of summer I have been trailing two different aluminium free deodorants, MooGoo and Harmoni's Kiss.  For two weeks I applied both to an underarm each and compared them in action, then later on I tested them individually, without comparison.  Read on to discover my findings!

MooGoo Fresh Cream Deodorant - 60ml - $9.95 AUD
Ingredients: Demineralized Water, Magnesium Hydroxide, Corn Starch, Xantham Gum, Witch Hazel, Organic Lemon Myrtle.
I must admit, I'm not a fan of the scent.  It smells rather bland and... damp. Or something.  I'm not sure, maybe it's the lemon myrtle?  Smell aside, it is very easy to apply.  It dries relatively fast to a powdery feel.  It does leave a slight white film on your skin which is annoying if you're wearing a singlet, but it keeps me feeling dry for a couple or hours.  By the end of a busy, active day, I'm just a teensy bit stinky.  Available online or in selected pharmacies and health stores.

Harmoni's Kiss Organic Girl Roll On - 50ml - $4.95 AUD
Ingredients: (*Organic) Lavender Hydrosol*, Witch Hazel Extract*, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Aloe Vera Powder*, Bicarb Soda, Zinc Oxide, Glycerine*, Lime Oil*, Orange Oil*, Lavender Tree Oil*, Geranium Oil*, Frankincense Oil*, Sweet Fennel Oil, Fragrance, Potassium Sorbate.
At first, I hated the scent of this roll on.  And while it was easy to apply, it took a while to dry on my skin.  But it was totally clear, so wearing a singlet was not a problem.  I eventually got used to the scent and now I actually quite like it!  It doesn't keep me feeling as dry as MooGoo, but by the end of a busy, active day, I'm not stinky AT ALL.  Available online or in Woolworth's supermarkets.

How do they compare?
For an everyday deodorant for days where I'm just home or not very active, I prefer to use the MooGoo Fresh Cream Deodorant because it keeps me relatively dry and smelling fresh throughout the day.  If it's a hot day and I know I'll be quite active, I use the Harmoni's Kiss Organic Girl Roll On because it keeps me from smelling like BO by the end of the day (even after a long, fast paced walk)!  If I could only choose one to use permanently, it would be Harmoni's Kiss.  For just under $5, it's great value for money and works very well.

In my opinion, the MooGoo deodorant would probably suit those who are sensitive to essential oils or just have general skin sensitivity.  It's list of ingredients is very short so would be less irritating.  However, as mentioned earlier, the MooGoo deodorant does leave a slight white film and can rub off onto dark coloured clothing.  Harmoni's Kiss does not have this problem.

That's not to say that Harmoni's Kiss is without its own problems.  I find that with continuous use (say 4 days in a row) my underarms get a bit itchy.  I do have eczema so I think my skin may be slightly sensitive to certain oils.  This is why I choose to continue using MooGoo.  It may be more expensive and harder to find than Harmoni's Kiss, but my underarms do not get irritated with continuous use.

Both deodorants do a great job.  Harmoni's Kiss does a slightly better job than MooGoo at keeping the BO at bay, but they both work very well, even with just one application in the morning.  By the end of a busy, active day, I don't feel embarrassed to raise my arms on a packed train carriage anymore!


  1. I might just have to search the shelves at Woolies for the Harmoni's Kiss deodorant. :)

  2. Thanks for the post, i find that my moogoo may be causing me irritation, i too have eczema. it is so annoying to sweat with moogoo it used to work but doesnt work much anymore for me. I have a QV one that doesnt smell like anything... but it's too itchy so I guess the no smell is better than itching. Thanks again

  3. I went and bought harmonis kiss and moogoo, I work in the pilbara WA ( mines ) and after a 12.5 hour shift and a walk home 3.5 kms I didn't smell at all with the harmonis! Will test moogoo another day but am very happy so far. When I fly I usually get and odor with redone, but nope not with harmonis!!
