    Default BEST UNSCENTED DEODORANT?

    What do ya'all recommend for an unscented deodorant...I really liked Axe's products, but don't wanna mix scents!

    There are so many to choose from, and the all-natural crystals are kind of a pain to use, especially when in a rush - SUGGESTIONS?

    Just ordered this from Menessentials, and I'm very happy with it. No scent at all, and it seems to work well.

    Prior to this I'd been using Arm & Hammer scent-free for many years. It was OK, but lately I'd started to be annoyed with the residue it leaves. The Sharps Happy Me Pit Guard has been working very well so far.

    Try the deodorant stick by Nickel. I forgot the name, but I think they only got one. It's supposed to be put in the fridge or extra cooling. It has a light scent that doesn't mix with your fragrances. I used it last summer, but it's too expensive for me to use everyday (about 20 ą).

    Default Re: BEST UNSCENTED DEODORANT?

    The best by far is Arm and Hammer's unscented solid.

    The problem here is it's a solid and can potentially leave white marks on shirts that aren't white. I say A & H because the baking soda makes it the only deodorant that is highly effective after the fact. I've often forgotten to put on deodorant and had to reach for A & H as it eliminates and neutralizes BO when you've forgotten to apply after a shower or even if your initial application of something else gives out. This doesn't happen often, but it can be a real lifesaver for when it does, especially if you're at work or whereever else.

    A close second (and actually better) if you need a clear unscented is Mitchum Gel. There is a faint scent, but it dissappears after it dries. Recommended if you are wearing black or another color that would show a white solid stick. Sure Unscented Gel is also good.

    Default unscented deodorant?

    My girlfriends father was showing me this natural salt crystal deodorant he uses. It has absolutely no smell, you just rub it under your arms and it kills bacteria and absorbs moisture all day.

    Has anyone else heard of/used this. If it works well it would be perfect to prevent body odour without ruining the smell of fragrances.

    I got one of these in a New West gift set years ago. It worked OK for me for the first couple weeks or so. Then my skin broke out terribly, and it took almost a month for it to get back to normal. Lesson learned: If one has problems with antiperspirants (like I do), the crystals will be no different.

    I have tried Mitchum Unscented and some of the crystal stuff (in a spray form however) and none of it worked well for me.

    I broke out from both of those, too!

    I have found I can only wear deodorant and no antiperspirants. Even then I've run into a couple of those that broke me out. These days I use Avalon Organics roll-on (lavender or rosemary), and it works pretty well. The scent disappears rather quickly, so it's never caused a problem with any fragrance I wear. When I need something a little stronger, I use Addidas deodorant that contains cotton fibers to help absorb some wetness.

    Really, it's not a bad thing to sweat, so I don't worry too much about it. But I do think a trip to a dermatologist is in my future...

    I used to use the crystal with good results. There are many brands that can be found at any health food store for cheap.

    I have since switched over to kiss My Face Active Enzyme or Earth Science Lichen Deodorant. Both work in a simialr fashion by digesting the odor causing bacteria. They are VERY effective! They do not stop sweating, which is a good thing. Seating is an important function.

    Mitchum's unscented has never let me down. If you can, try a few trial/travel sizes of various products, to see what works for you.

    Warning: Tom's of Maine unscented was terrible. I don't know if it's my body chemistry or if it's just no good, but I swear it actually made me smell worse and sweat more. I wrote a letter to Tom's and they kindly agreed to refund it, so I'm still a fan of Tom's (just not the deodorant).

    I have using Dove original clean which, has very little scent, so much so that I have never perceived any adverse contamination of whatever fragrance I wear and it really keeps me dry and odorless. I will have to try some of the suggestions made on this thread. As usual, diversity of experience, as share here on Base Notes, widens one's horizon.

    Um, yeah. Kind of hard to explain. But when showering I'd notice that the deodorant built up over several days - I was never able to wash it off completely - and that's using sorbolene bar, followed by shower gel on a shower puff. My underarms never felt "clean" - they always felt like I still had deodorant on - kind of sticky. It might be fantastic for someone who doesn't shower as often (Yuk!) or maybe just wants to put deodorant on a couple of times a week (double Yuk!).

    I used Gillette Series Clear Gel antiperspirant/deodorant quite happily for nearly a decade but I had recently been looking for something chemical-free so I, too, bought the crystal solid one.

    It seems to work quite well, with one caveat: I am not sure just how much I should be applying. Because I do not want to risk applying too little, I have been going with five or six application strokes per armpit, which is probably too much.

    To jrd4t or anyone else who has used this in the past 2 1/2 years (), how much do you usually apply?

    Beware of the Mitchum unscented gels: they have an "unscented" Mitchum gel for women AND one for men. The one for men has an extremely strong "masking" odor: I don't know how they can call it unscented when it is definitely scented, just not as anything you'd recognize. The Mitchum gel for women has virtually no fragrance, just like Almay's clear gel. I don't get it.

    Mitchum solid here, too. My only complaint is--if I put it on right out of the shower, and I haven't totally dried off, it can be a bit slimey. Still works great, though. Might try some of the other suggested, for comparison, in the coming weeks.
