I work out quite a bit so it has to be able to keep the sweat away or at least the smell. But on the other hand I don't want to mix it with my e.g. DH. So that's why scentless only.
I recently found Christal (brand) of deodorant stick. This stuff is amazing. Basically it's a stick of some kind of mineral salt or something (Alum
) mostly used in Thailand but they sell it at every local supermarket and drug store, or go online at amazon (read reviews too)
. It's the same $6-7 but lasts for 1-2 years apparently. Basically the "smell" you get has nothing to do with your own body, it's just bacteria living on your skin and they byproduce smelly gas. Take a shower, wet this stone, rub well all over your armpits, feet, ahem, anywhere, and voila! NO smell. I've been amazed by this thing. It's completely natural, and while there's still liquid perspiration, there's literally no smell, like from 8am to 12pm. the salt on your skin makes an inhospitable environment for the bacteria to live in.
I'm no tree hugger type, and I spent a few hours reading around to make sure it wasn't some sort of scam or dangerous. read the above links to amazon and wiki
