    What kind of deodorant does everyone use? I've tried supermarket brands before but nothing works. Up until I bumped into Menscience Advanced Deodorant. It claims to be almost natural, no aluminium and long lasting door protection. I absolutely love it, but leaves a bit of white residue on the armpits. Minor problem but it's getting expensive being $30 a piece and that I could only get it online now that I'm living outside of the US.

    I'd like to know what everyone uses

    How do you get it to stay on? Would it just brush off when you put your shirt on?

    I apply it with a brush like this:

    My pits are pretty hairy so a light coat of baking soda naturally adheres with that brush. Sometimes I apply some moisturizing lotion under my arms right before and a thicker coat will adhere, but even a light coat is surprisingly potent to keep you completely deodorized.

    I've always been of the opinion that if you shower in the morning you don't really need deodorant. But I like to use it just in case as well. My favorite is Old Spice, original scent. I like the old geezer smell it gives you; reminds me of my great uncle who died at age 99.

    I don't need deoderant. I just like the scent.
    I lead a dull life and a big excitement for me is buying a new brand.
    (Odd but the guys at work said they felt the same.)
    I buy what-ever is on sale for men or women.
    I mix them too for fun!

    I'm in Aus. I use Driclor www.driclor.com.au three or four nights a week and now have no use for deodorant.

    I'm sure there are similar in the US and UK

    You guys who think their sweat doesn't smell should stay in the "Bear Bars" and avoid the rest of the civilized "Real World".

    What if you don't sweat?
    I come from a family of non-sweaters.
    If you don't sweat, you don't smell bad.
    (But I still squirt on a little deodorant after showering to be sure.)

    I used this anti-perspirant & deodorant, with the best ratio of aluminum content to cost I found, worked really well. My husband still uses it. And no clothing residue and white streaks, a problem I've had with others.

    But during my cancer treatment my underarms developed a rash, and finally became cracked & bleeding. I stopped using any deodorant until they healed. I then tried several deodorants-only, without aluminum, but they were ineffective, had odor before the day ended.

    My current solution that's working well is this deodorant-only stick, marketed as non-irritant, along with using a deodorant soap for men, in bar form.

    I keep a few deodorants on hand and switch around, but this is the one I like best.

    People who think they don't stink, are only fooling themselves.

    Mine are also very hairy. Baking soda works great, and is so much less expensive..... and if you add chocolate chips to my pits we can bake cookies.

    I used to use whatever stick was unscented and on sale, usually Sure or Speed Stick.

    Now I use this. I bought a sample size of this for a trip and loved it - a very mild, non-gender-specific but pleasant scent.

    What's wrong with aluminum though? The theoretical adverse effects of cancer and Alzheimer's are vastly unsupported by scientific evidence.

    Also, I have hyperhidrosis (disorder of the sweat glands), which means that deodorants don't do it for me, nor do the available antiperspirants, so I have a prescription from my dermatologist. That stupid thing costs 45$ per tube. And it hurts like hell (go figure, with 20%+ of aluminum salt).

    It's probably like MSG, a neurotoxin. Baking soda and MSG mixed together makes the best underarm deodorant. No need to ever shower if you use that.

    There is a Cystral Rock Deodorant sold in heath food stores which is inexpensive and has different scents and works well.
