But does it last long? How dry does it leave you? How much body powder comes in each bottle?

Pros v Cons
Inexpensive compared to other body powders
Doesn't have the lasting powder of talc
Masculine "cedarwood" scent is fairly strong
The strong scent could also be too strong for some
Comes in a variety of scents
Not as much powder in each bottle as other brands
What Does It Smell Like?
The scent on Woody Non-Talc Body Powder is fairly strong, compared to other body powders.
The scent could best be described (as one reviewer stated) as "what you smell when opening a fine, cedar chest" and I would have to say, based on my experience, that's a pretty fitting description.
So, if you've got a thing for "woody" scents, you may be looking in the right direction here. On the other hand, if you're just not a cedarwood type of guy, this product would probably drive you crazy, as the scent from its initial application can be quite strong (but tapers off throughout the day).
This body powder is made up of:
- Cornstarch (main ingredient)
- Arrowroot powder
- Baking soda
- Cedarwood oil
- Cypress, Juniper, Rosewood and Tea Tree oil
The vast majority of consumers enjoyed the fragrance.
However, if you are looking for something a little bit "softer" or even unisex, check out our review of Gold Bond Body Powder.
How Long Does It Last?
Typically, talc powders last longer than non-talc, cornstarch based alternatives.
If you need something to get you through a very long, very hot day, talc is still the best way to go, however, there are a few non-talc powders that do a very good job of keeping you dry, such as Chassis Man Care.
And how does Woody Body Powder stack up?
The good news is, very well.
It doesn't have as long as staying power as Balla for instance, but if you're looking for a non-talc alternative, particularly one that is packed full of natural ingredients, it's really hard to beat this.
In terms of how long it lasts, if you're in an office environment or an environment with light physical activity, this will easily last you an entire day.
During physically exhaustive, hot days you will probably need to re apply it a few times during the day.
How the Talc Fees & How to Apply It
Woody Non-Talc Body Powder, despite being a cornstarch-based body powder, actually feels heavier and thicker in the hand than talc powders.
Because of this, you're probably going to leave less of a "dust trail" around your bathroom.
The bottle itself is 5 oz or 142 grams, which is a little bit less than most body powders, however considering the fact that the price is cheaper, it basically evens out (and maybe even be a bit more value for your money).
The applicator tip is nothing to write home about, and is probably it's biggest "weakness." Some other body powders, most notably Chassis and Jack Black, have more precise, better applicators that let you more accurately dispense your body powder.
However, as this body powder is a bit thicker and denser, you still shouldn't have problems of dust being left around everywhere.
Final Verdict of Woody Talc Free Body Powder
Thus far, there is a lot of great things to say about Woody Talc Free Body Powder.
- It has a strong, masculine scent
- Non-talc alternative that is entirely all natural
- Lasts a very long time considering it's a non-talc powder
- Good value for the amount you get
We haven't even gotten to perhaps the biggest draw of this powder.
If you like everything about this talc, except the scent, you are in LUCK...because...
...the company that produces this powder, Fromondo, has MORE options.
On top of Fromondo's Woody scent, there is also...
- Citrus IPA (citrus and hops scent)
- Atonement (menthol and mint)
This, in my opinion, is what puts this (and the company) over the top, and as such, I HAVE to give Woody Non-Talc Body Powder a...
It's simply a great product, definitely one of the better non-talc body powders out there.
