  • i'm allergic to deoderant. so i use natural stuff now and it works great! i used to get sweat stains too. it IS embarrassing and i dont get emarrassed easily. ...but sense i've switched deoderants from conventional to natural i dont have to worry about that any more.

  • Just like with shampoos, it is recommended that you switch deodorant brands every time you purchase deodorant. It tends to make them work better for you.

  • I had that same problem! try the feelin fresh deo by avon
    its just 99 cents and it worked better than the clinical stuff that was 8 bucks. My friend turned me onto it and i was surprised. all of the roll on ones work really well i just like the scent best its really fresh like clean laundry. worth a try! free shipping with code fsany

  • I apply twice a day, and I use clinical. Yikes. Someone told me you can get Botox shots under your arms and you sweat less.
