    Default Best unscented deodorant?

    Hey there,

    I currently use some cheap drugstore deodorant and sometimes it clashes with my fragrances. I am wondering what you guys think the best kind of unscented deodorant is. Thanks!

    Most will say Mitchum power gel, but it leaves my armpits smelling funky at the end of the day. I prefer scented deodorant because they mask any B.O. but aren't strong enough to overpower anything else you're wearing.

    I just use Arrid unscented. Not the best by far, but it works and is readily accessible.

    If you use the generic stuff- anything would be an upgrade

    Speed Stick unscented makes my armpits break out in rashes. I use Old Spice Playmaker. It's one of their less scented deodorants.

    4 oz Thai deodorant sticks from Amazon...all natural alum crystal and great as a non scented odor causing bacteria killer...cheap and a stick lasts for a long time unless you drop and break it

    Another great all natural deo which almost fully unscented (very light smell of wheat to my nose) is Primal Pit Paste in their small glass tubs...full of natural goodies and good enough to eat :-) also available from Amazon or their website direct

    Both are great for taking care of BO but also great for using frags

    No bad smelling pits after using these :-)

    Tried the Lush Charcoal deo powder also but on my skin it started smelling like skunk had fa**ted! Had to go and scrub it off in the mall bathroom

    Would also add two popular and moderately priced German brands of unscented deodorants: Bekra Mineral and Hydrofugal.

    Had extremely good experience especially with Bekra Mineral so far. Their unscented male range had very good results and, apart from not interfering with my fragrance, lasted an impressive number of hours during temperatures of 30 deg. Celsius and beyond.

    Aramis Lab Series stick is the best and most expensive. Clinque stick is good and a bit cheaper.

    Mitchum roll-on and spray are very good (just remember to shake the can).

    In fact - they're all good - just check the women's section for unscented local brands, the aluminium salt ingedients are very similar.

    But if you shower before going to bed, just apply any scented 24 hour or 48 hour antiperspirant, and the scent will be long gone by the time you get up, but the antiperspirant will keep working nicely.

    Oh - and those natural crystal deodorants which are basically alum blocks work fine for 10 or so hours, though the Potassium Alum ones are better in that more of the salts come off with one swipe, whereas the Ammonium Alum needs several swipes to get the same effect.

    Timely question. My deodorant recently became ineffective and I need to change it up. I'm not really stinking, but my sweating has increased.

    I've been using a deodorant from Men Science that I found over the New Year in NY and it works well. A bit expensive at $19 and so far has lasted me 4-5 weeks. Otherwise, I was recommended, by a friend in the UK, something called PitRok. Haven't tried it, though. Both are 'fragranceless'/odorless.

    Brands that I like in unscented are arrid, sure, mitchum. All are cheap and work well.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I've had the same dilemma, for some time now. Here are my findings:

    - All Natural Aluminum Body Stick - worked great for the first day, now every time I open it, it smells like B.O. I asked my girl what she thought of the deodorant? She replied by saying "What deodorant?"

    - Mitchum Uncented Roll-On Deodorant - long ago this used to be a main workhorse, for me. However, a couple years ago I believe they went through a reformulation; because, now it leaves my armpits all sticky and stains my white undershirts.

    - Right Guard Total Defense Power Gel - This stuff is the bomb! I'm wearing it now, just worked for nine hours, and still can't smell any B.O. It doesn't stain my shirts: and, it is a truly unscented deodorant. It can be hard to find. Amazon has a six pack for $24.

    I use 'Salt of the Earth' Spray.

    Reading off the bottle: No Aluminium Chlorohydrate, no fragrance, no alcohol and no Parabens and no fragrance.

    It is made from mineral salts, Aloe Vera and Honeysuckle extract.

    Here in Britain there is a chain health store called Holland & Barrett and this is where I found it about five years ago.

    I think that it is a very good product indeed and cannot imagine anything better, maybe there is, perhaps someone will say.

    Try Native Unscented. Keeps you dry and is Aluminum and Paraben free without a trace of scent.

    Simple, inexpensive & working great for me...
    Distilled water + baking soda + tea tree oil essential oil (I add a little orange or grapefruit EO to mask tea tree). Trick is to let the baking soda sit overnight in the water then use just the infused water in your mixture. Pur in spray bottle & use.

    I've tried a bunch of the popular unscented deodorants. Most smell slightly powdery. My current choice is the Mitchum unscented roll-on, it has less of a smell compared to the Gel.

    Gonna have to agree with most others and say Old Spice has been working wonders for guys like me. Although I think Axe had one (surprisingly) for a while, but I don't know if they took it off the shelf.

    I am still on the hunt for a deodorant that doesn't stain my shirt, leaves no residue, and lasts for 8+ hours (as in no noticable B.O.). I've tried many expensive ones, cheap ones, etc. but the only one that's been working for me is Old Spice, though not all of them. You can make a distinction between the lighter and the darker blue stick, and only the darker worked for me (I'm using Old Spice Danger Zone, which is clearly scented), the other one lasted only for like 2 hours and dyed my shirt blue after a single use (!). And the white sticks (regardless of Old Spice), ugh... those are horrible, they leave a residue, one that even sticks to my armpit! Am I the only unlucky guy here?

    Any suggestions?

    Try a spray , not a roll on or gel. Dove men unscented or Sure or Sure Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Aerosol Spray Unscented

    My problem with sprays is that it doesn't really last long either, 2 hours at top.
    I might give these a try though... :/

    I'm a huge fan of Baxter of California's Aluminum-free, Alcohol-free men's deodorant for sensitive skin. Yes, it does have a light scent, so it may not be what you're looking for, but I've never had it clash with my fragrance of the day. More to the point, it lasts and lasts, doesn't stain my clothes at all and doesn't leave residue. It goes on silky, not chalky or rough. You might check Baxter for a sample size to see if you like it! Best of luck, Tom
