Opinions on Odor Free Na'Scent?

Mar 25, 2014 1:34 am

Hi everyone, just had a question. Has anyone tried Odor Free Na'Scent? NB Products has free 1oz bottles that you can try. I spoke to a lady who tried it first hand and told me that it works wonders. She told me it takes all the odor away!! I just was wondering if anyone has used it and is it worthwhile to buy it. Let me hear your take on it! :=)

Hello panhead511.

I use this product - but only because I get it free on prescription on the NHS.  I don't feel it works any better than ordinary air fresheners. However, it is in a handy small spray which is useful if you're out and about .

Hey Bill.. I tried it for the first time and it seemed to take some of the odor away. I am going to give it some time and hopefully it will do the job! I have tried many deodorizers and I have found that a lot of them don't really work. Also, I take chlorophyll with it so it does help. Thanks for your response. Have a good day! Chris

Hey Panhead,

I have tried the Hollister and the Coloplast deodorant/lubricant and find that they don't work very well for either. I find them very costly.
Personally, I think baby oil is the best lubricant. Penguins7

Hey, what's up Penquins7? Yes, they are expensive and a waste of money for a so-so lubricating deodorant! I use cooking spray at times and Vaseline for lubricant. What do you use for deodorant? Let me know. Take care, Chris.

Hey Chris, I have only been using the baby oil and no deodorant. I buy the large baby oil for home use and one for my office, and I buy the small bottle to carry when I am out and about. Good luck. Penguins7

Hey penguins, I have used baby oil and it works as a lubricant pretty well. The only thing is when it is warm or hot out here, I won't use it. It cooks the, well, you know. Hehe.. Believe me, I have tried a lot of different things. I have come to find out that nothing really works all that well when it comes to deodorants. I even tried oils, granted they were cheaper oils but nonetheless, they were okay if you found the right scent and in a pinch. Na-scent works better than most of them out there. The good thing about it is that it is reasonable as far as price goes! Just as long as you buy it from N.B. Products, the more you buy, the cheaper it is. Take care, Chris

The Na'Scent works as well or better than others I have tried. Three or four Tic-Tacs will also
work to reduce odor and don't cost much.

The best product I've found to keep the odor down in the pouch is a product by Hollister called M9, but Medicare will only pay for 2 bottles a month. So, I've gone to another product called Stop Odor Plus from Montreal Ostomy Accessories through Byrum, and I can get three a month. Another really great product for anyone using the bathroom is called Poo-Pourri. You can find it online, just Google it. You spritz it in the toilet bowl before you empty (or regular people have bowel movements), and it completely cuts the smell. I take a little bottle of it with me when I'm out shopping. I just use regular vegetable oil in my pouch as a lubricant. Hope this helps!

PS: I forgot to add that I used N'Scent once and didn't think it helped at all.

Na'Scent didn't work for me either. I use the Coloplast Brava Lubricating Deodorant and it has a pleasant smell to it (like baby shampoo).
