    Default Unscented antiperspirant/deodorant (UK)

    Hi,

    What does everyone use as their unscented antiperspirant/deodorant? I currently use Dove Extra Fresh spray however I stink of it, it literally lingers around for the whole day as I sweat a lot (smell sometimes).

    Iíve heard Mitchum Unscented is good however for the life of me I canít seem to find where to buy them (UK). Has anyone used Driclor? Or another Dove range?

    All help regarding smelling would be appreciated. Since starting my new job I swear extremely which results in smell. Iíve tried Triple Dry however it isnít that good on me.

    Thanks

    Mitchum Unscented was available in Boots, Superdrug and other stores such as Wilkinsons. They are normally in the female / general deo isles, not in the mens section.

    I’ve found loads however all of them are advertised as female. Have you used the product at all?

    Thanks

    I use this and it's amazing -



    It works way better the one marketed to men (gave me white flakes) which I threw away. Ignore the marketing label!

    I have gone through this for aerosols, I have a Mitchum Triple Odor Intense for Women Unscented here right now. I just sprayed it into the air to remind myself why I don't wear it. It is not unscented at all, plus what is there smells feminine. I settled on Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort, which whilst it does smell, it soon backs off and is not that unnoticeable and at least what is there only smells like fresh clothes really. ...haven't founded an unscented one yet, but if anyone has I'd be interested to know. The trick is probably to go with stick ones.

    I will try the gel one posted in the image.

    Is it actually odourless? Many of these products claim to be odourless but give away some smell. I just want to stop smelling of sweat so I can use my colognes without it turning into a grim sweat smelling odour.

I have never seen or heard of Mitchum Triple Defense unscented here in the U.S. I can’t stand stinky armpits, and other bodily stank.
    Unfortunately the one marketed at men isn’t available in the UK. I can’t even seem to find any online websites to buy it from.

    Yeah I’m thinking to try the Certain Dri Prescription Strength Clinical Antiperspirant.

    Very strong stuff so follow the instruction.

    I apply once a week only (normal deodorant other days). Ensure you only use at night before bed and use a hair drier to dry under your arms BEFORE & after application. If you are not dry before application it will cause irritation.

    From the mainstream ones the "Simple" and "sanex" brand are in that eco health friendly field and have some unscented deodorants.

    There also likely lots of new players offering organic, no smells no nasties deodorants.

    Thanks for all the replies guys. I’m really looking for a way to reduce/eliminate odour so I’m not sure if a clinical antiperspirant is going to be of use? Whenever I use antiperspirant that’s also a deodorant the smell becomes unbearable, I smell as if I’ve just sprayed the product that second for the whole day.

    I’m scared if i use a really strong antiperspirant that the lack of sweating is going to make me extremely hot, is this a possibility?

    Why use Aluminium based anti perspirant?

    If your aim is to avoid "deo" scent interfering with your perfume, I'd say buy something with a light scent.

    I use Mancave Stick - it's aluminium free, which by its inherent nature means, it will make you wet, it will not block your pores and doesn't last more than 12 odd hours.

    The good thing about it is, it's very light scent and no alu to block my pores.

    I never use anything else - completely odourless and works like a charm





    Readily available in most branches of Boots.

    That aerosol one pictured is the one I mentioned upthread which I think smells feminine. It smells a bit like a girly talc to me. It's no more unscented than some of the ones that don't claim it. The gel stick version of the same thing looks interesting, I'm not going to assume it smells the same as it is a completely different product really.

    Besides some studies link it to cancer, which is BS. Everything is linked to cancer these days lol

    initially there is a light aroma but I don't find it particularly feminine and once it has dried it is imperceptible after a few minutes. Works for me, anyway

    When I lived in the UK I ordered Biotherm Deo Pure and Sanoflore from Paris. Personally I really loved the smell of Sanoflore and I wish it wasn't so darn expensive here in the States.

    Have you tried the Kiehl's Cream deodorant/anti-perspirant yet? Personally I didn't have luck with Boots except for La Roche Posay and you'll find that mixed in with the skincare of the same name, not in the deodorant aisle. I believe Vichy might have one too, but it's with the Euro skincare, not in the deodorant rows. Usually bottom shelf.

    There are only two organs in the body that process and eliminate toxins - the kidney's and the liver.

    From what my tinfoil hat aunt told me, she believe breast cancer is related to wearing deodorant that has aluminum. However when I explained that there are lymph nodes between the armpit and the breast tissue and then asked why the lymph nodes were cancer free. There was a lot of silence....followed by her googling lymph nodes....and then calling me stupid and she stormed off.

    How about Seba deodorant?
    When I am want ingredients to be safer, Seba tends to be my No.1 choice.
    Aesop is certainly better but much more expensive.
    In fact, I am also searching for some brands of deodorant other than Seba and Aesop.
    Thank you.

    Thanks to you and this thread I went and got some of the above last night from Superdrug. (Couldn't see the Gel version in Boots, only the solid stick). I can confirm this stuff is practically unscented, and it works too!
