I've been using the crystal for probably 11 years or so (gosh, that makes me sound old). My first rock lasted for a couple of years - it was amazing!! You just wet it and rub it on. Things I didn't like about it: it was attached to a "base" and so I couldn't use it all. Plus, it cracked off in tiny pieces near the end.
I've tried the roll-on, but didn't like that as well. Plus, it was WAY more expensive than the rock and only lasted a couple of months.
Just a few months ago I found a HUGE rock at Vitamin Cottage for about $4, and it has a little dish that you can put it in between uses. The rock doesn't have a cover, so it's not attached to a base.
Now, however, I think I recently read that there's aluminum in the crystal, which is why I switched over from regular deoderant. I think aluminum is stated to be one of the causes of Alzheimers (not sure, though). So most days, as I don't do much, I just brush on baking soda with my fingers. If I'm going out or will be more active, I'll use my crystal.
I really need to do more research on the crystal, though. Oh, and by the way, I stopped shaving under my arms almost a year and a half ago (after seeing a bunch of my crunchy friends this way and always having been uncomfortable during the growing-back process), and the crystal (and now the BS) still work perfectly.
