When you're using your stick for the first time it can be a little tricky to push up because the ingredients are a bit stuck to the tube. So the very first time you push it up it does require a bit more effort, but after that it will slide up and down in its tube easily.


2-3 Millimeters is all you really need to expose, If you accidentally push it up too far just gently ease it back down with the palm of your hand.


Tip:

Step1, Before applying too much force try holding it in your hands for a minute to warm the tube and soften the deodorant inside a bit - Or if you have really cold hands like some of us in the Happy Shed this winter, place the whole stick under your armpit for a minute :-)  

Step2: You can then put your stick top down on a flat surface and push steadily.  If your stick is particularly as stubborn place your thumb to one side of the base circle to get a little movement and then you should be able to push evenly from there:-)
