What is a good deodorant?

I have tried Mitchum, Dove, Suave, Secret, Right Guard.... and none of them work! I don't sweat a lot and I've never had a problem before. I'm sure it's me getting older and hormones.. but do you have any other suggestions for the stinkyness? :(

  • The clinical formulas are usually pretty effective. You do have to change periodically; your body gets used to one formula. Right now I'm alternating between Adidas sport formula and Lady SpeedStick stain guard - I hate deodorant stains on my clothes!

  • I use Degree! It is the best, I have used everything else, but nothing else works for me. I use the powder fresh scent, so when I start to sweat all I smell is baby powder. If I get up one morning in a rush and forget to put it on, I know I'm going to be fine. It will work for a couple of days if you get stuck somewhere that you cant shower. I got stuck in the mountains for three days once,(it was a day trip) with two other people. I was the only one that didn't stink on the way home. I keep a travel size Degree in my purse for times like this. Not for me but for anyone with me that I can smell. LOL Try it....I promise you will love it!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I personally stay away from the commercial brands; I buy aluminum-free ones from the health food store.

  • I use deodorant from Avon. The one I use is called Skin So Soft Fresh & Smooth Hair Minimizing Deodorant! It works great! I never smell and I never notice any wetness in my armpit almost all day long. It's the best deodorant I've ever used and I've tried Suave, Secret, Arm & Hammer and a few others and none of them worked for me. My husband even uses deodorant from Avon.

  • I use secret "scent expression" there have been times where I had to use certain dry to help with excessive sweating; i know you already said you didnt really have a sweat issue but maybe it will help with the odor as well

  • I'm 52 but I use teen spirit. Teens are usually more active so I figure they make it to last longer and it really does. It's from Lady speed stick. I use pink crush because it smells sooooo good. try it i bet you'll like it and it isnt expensive.
