Thread: Deodorant

  1. #1

    Default Deodorant

    So seriously..just got Kiehls Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant and it is appropriately named. It is as if it somehow magically digs down into your sweat glands and says: "Oh no....not today...I'm shutting you down." It doesn't really have much of a scent and neither will you. I loves it!

    I'll have to try this - for the longest time I've only used unscented Mitchum.

    scent is kind of strong so if someone's too close to your armpits, they'd probably smell old spice. but it's the only decent thing I could get my hands on that actually deodorizes and stops sweat from flooding my pits.

    Lab Series Antiperspirant Deodorant Stick works really well and it's unscented. It does flake a bit and get onto clothes but it never stains. Lists tea tree oil as an active ingredient. Pricey but I rather spend money on this than have my clothes that cost more ruined.

    The Kiehls doesn't leave white streaks or flake off. I was really surprised at how well it works despite is almost non-existent presence on my skin.

    The best on me is Nivea deo stick or Gillette deo gel.

    As far as unscented deodorants are concerned,I would recommend Bekra Mineral or Hydrofugal (in any shape, irrespective if as spray, crystal, stick and so on)

    For men: Degree's V12 is the best stuff that I have used in a long time. I used to use the Old Spice and that is really good as well, but the degree just keeps working even after an early morning application. No flaking or staining of my shirts either.

    Old Spice after hours deodorant. I try not to use anti-perspirant or anything that stops you from producing sweat. I'd rather have the stuff on the outside rather than plugged up inside.

    Default What deodorant do you use?

    I've tried a few in my life and lately I've been using the Old Spice line. But the thing is sometimes there overpowering and I don't like that. I don't like solids, been using the gels. I also tried some non scented ones, didn't like those I've tried. I'm just looking for a good deodorant stick that wont try to over power my fragrance. Any idea? Thanks

    Do you mean deodorant or antiperspirant?

    If antiperspirant, I agree the Mitchum unscented is the cheapest and very effective way to go. I also came across an American brand stick antiperspirant called Almay, which is very good.

    But if you shower in the evenings, really, any spray-on 24hr anti perspirant will actually last 24 hours nowadays. Spray it on before you go to bed, and the scent will be gone by the time you get up. The new Clinical Protection antiperspirants like that from Rexona, actually says on the box that it is best applied the night before, and it has no scent by morning.

    If you really mean deodorant (i.e. doesn't stop sweating with aluminium salts, just stops the sweat from breaking down and getting smelly) well, you can just use designer deodorant sticks. With a few exceptions (e.g D&G PH) most of them are pretty weak scent-wise, and your edt will overpower them easily.

    Default Favorite Deodorants

    I really like the irish spring deodorants, i have the newly released from irish spring which to me is a softer scent and i also have the mennon speed stick version which to me is the stronger EDP version and in my opinion the better one. I like to either wear Gendarme by Gendarme or Sung Homme by Alfred Sung when im going to use those deodorants. Also the Axe Dark Temptation and Givenchy Play Intense work well with each other for me. What's your favorite deodorants?

    My favorite is Corduroy by Zirh stick. Keeps me dry and clean all day long in the heat of Brazil (30C or more)
    Also it smells for less than 1 minute than it turns unscented, perfect to match with any fragrance. For sure the best deodorant that i used.

    If you mean deodorants as opposed to antiperspirants, my favourite is the D&G Homme deodorant stick. It seems to be at about half the EDT's strength, and keeps pumping out strong scent all day long.

    If you mean antiperspirants, they all do the job and I have no favourite.

    Never thought of a classifying a deodorant as best. All any deodorant one has to do for me is keep me dry and sweat-smell free.
    Any one that does that is OK by me.

    I agree.

    There are two primary sources of odor - the natural aroma that is carried out of the body with sweat - this is the “fresh sweat” smell that people like, and contains the pheromones. I think it’s a mistake to block it unless wetness is a significant problem.

    The body odor that offends people comes from the gas emitted by bacteria on the skin that feed on the sweat, and starts to develop subsequently. Kill that and you’re home free, unless there’s something wrong with your metabolism, or it is unduly influenced by diet.

    The bacteria-killing ingredient in most deos is some sort of stabilized alcohol. For these, there are a couple of designer deos, Chanels, I like. But most of the time I use the mineral-salt type that is fragrance-free and blocks bacteria from forming. It’s essentially solid piece of alum, a natural mineral, and lasts for ages. You can get Crystal stick, or some other brand, in most big-chain drugstores.
