Mando Deodorant Review – What You Need to Know

Mando is a brand of whole-body deodorants available in different scents and formulations. They are all aluminum-free. 

The Mando Deodorant line produces solid sticks, invisible creams, wipes, and body washes. 

As usual, the team here at Sasily heard about Mando and decided to give the brand a try ourselves. Was it worth it? 

How Mando Works

Mando’s whole-body deodorant uses cornstarch, mandelic acid, tapioca starch, and arrowroot powder to keep you dry and odor free. 

It does not contain Aluminum, Baking Soda, Phthalates, Parabens, or Dyes

It is, from our experience, highly fragrant. The company especially claims “Cologne Quality Scents”. But it is also available in unscented options (except for the wipes) if high scents are not your thing.

How Effective Mando Really Is

Now, since this deodorant is aluminum-free, it will not work as strongly as aluminum antiperspirants. But it works well for a product that does not stop sweating. Here is what I mean:

The cornstarch, tapioca starch and arrowroot powder will absorb moisture to keep you dry for as long as possible. However, how long it can do this will majorly depend on how much sweat you produce. 

Mando will not stop you from sweating altogether.

How long do they last?

If you barely sweat, this will last about 24-48 hours. I tried this myself and both the invisible cream and the solid stick held up. 

However, if you sweat more than just a little, or a lot, then this will give you about 12-24 hours of sweat protection. According to the sweatier guys and gals here, you will need to reapply. 

Unlike what the company claims, though, it does not last for 72 hours

Will Mando help body odor?

The scented versions of Mando are very intense and their fragrance really lasts the day. Once your skin is clean, they do really well at masking any lingering body odor

Are they safe for sensitive skin?

If you have sensitive skin, the invisible cream is great. It does not work as effectively as the solid stick, but it feels really nice on your skin. 

The solid stick is not as harsh either, but it does not contain the range of skincare ingredients like aloe vera and others that the invisible cream has. 

Do they stain clothes?

Thankfully, Mando is water-based so it does not leave stains on your clothing. 

In my opinion, it is actually pretty comfortable to wear and the cream absorbs easily into the skin.

Do the Mando wipes work?

The Mando wipes are nice but to be honest, they are not extraordinary. 

They clean your skin and help to tone down and even get rid of lingering odor, but they still need to be used with deodorants or creams.

They definitely cannot be used in place of a shower, but rather as a refresher in between showers.

Are the Mando body washes effective?

The Mando body washes are great. They feel great on the skin and they cleanse and deodorize pretty well. 

They do not leave sticky residues but if you have dry skin or sensitive skin, they might feel a bit stripping. You will need to moisturize after use.

Can Mando be used on your private parts?

Here’s the best part: Mando can be used around and on your private parts – anywhere that you sweat! This includes: under your breasts, between your thighs, in your groin, on your balls and between your butt cheeks

However, do not apply Mando products directly on your penis itself or inside your vagina. This will cause itching, irritation and even possible infections.

Side Effects Of Mando

Like all skincare products, Mando products can potentially cause irritation and allergic reactions. 

As always, I recommend that you do a patch test for a few days before using Mando all over, especially around your private parts. 

Also, it is best to apply the solid stick and invisible cream on dry skin. Even though it does not contain aluminum, the excess moisture will affect how much more absorption of sweat once application can provide. So, dry skin means more absorption time for actual sweat. 

Since most of these products are heavily scented, keep in mind that they can cause some irritation, especially if you are already sensitive to fragrances. Check out their unscented options instead! 

Finally, remember to check the ingredient lists to make sure that you are not known to be allergic to anything that is listed. 

Mando vs Lume – Which is better?

Mando is just as effective as Lume! 

It is basically the male version of lume – using the same mandelic acid technology. They seemed to be just as effective (in our opinion) – and yes, we saily ladies were not afraid to walk around smelling like bourbon!

Now here’s a fun fact: Mando is actually the male counterpart of Lume! They are family brands of the same company!
