  • They have prescription strength in secret now. You can by it over the counter. Try that. My sister has to use it and it works better than the other stuff.

  • My odiferous handyman/spouse uses a mineral crystal (so do I)

    My stinky teen uses Lafes Active. I buy it at a local apothecary, but I think that you can buy it at whole foods. http://www.lafes.com/organicdeodorants.html

  • I use Ban. They sell it in stick form, as well as roll on. With it being summer, the roll on feels so good when putting it on! But the stick overall works the best. I had the same problem!

  • ok, i will say that the 'prescription strength' deoderants turned my armpits black, so i stay away from them. i have had luck lately with the platinum secret (not the regular one). also, i find that the gel is better for me than the stick so maybe you'll have to try a few different ones to find the one for you

  • We're in Texas and this is a big one here this summer since its been over 100 degrees pretty much every day. The Avon deodorants are only .99 they're liquid and they're awesome. I like to switch up my scents but the Feelin Fresh seems to be universal. They just came out with a no marks version too. www.youravon.com/dhullum if you want to try one make sure to use coupon code fsany for free shipping with no minimum purchase. You might like buying one of the talc powders and the matching deodorant. Both will only cost about $3!`
