I think that is my problem, the mix of heat & deodorant smells. DH says I am not stinky & that he just smells the deodorant. Try unscented.

The aluminum chloride and Alzheimer's link kinda freaked me out, so I had to do a little research here. Apparently, it's pretty contraversial...they've been unable to either prove it or disprove it. Here's some more information if anyone's interested: http://www.webmd.com/alzheimers/guid...s-risk-factors

Women's deoderants stopped working for me over 15 years ago. I have no clue why.

So I use Speed Stick unscented anti-persperant and deoderant, and it works GREAT. Have to use the combo, because if I use just the deoderant, I don't stink, but I SWEAT. Excuse me. I perspire.

Another Dove user here. I tried it seven years ago and love it so much, I don't buy anything else!

I use Degree Ultra Clear in Pure Satin. All Suave products make me break out in rash, and Secret doesn't seem to work as long as Degree. Dove, while making my pits feel smoother, doesn't work as long as Secret or Degree.. I was disappointed because I love Dove products and wanted to like it too.

Same with me, I have Dove, Suave, Lady Mitchem, Ladys Choice, Degree, and Speed Stick unsented.

I have the Speed Stick unsented too, a friend reccomended it, and I use it from time to time..

I usually use men's pit stick because it works better for me.

I use Certain-Dry or Maxim, both of which are commonly used for hyperhydrosis....(which I don't have), but I really like the fact that it shrinks the sweat glands in the axilla, so you just plain don't sweat anymore...no sweat, no smell. Unfortunately, if I shave too close, it will cause a rash, so I have to be really careful.

I use Certain Dry- it's amazing!!!!! you use it at night and it can last for up to 72 hours (3 days) - it's amazing on presperation!!!! I literally NEVER EVER get pit stains ever since i switched to it!!! It's the best deoderant!!!! You are supposed to use it before bed at night (and also do not use it RIGHT after you shave- wait a few minutes). It's amazing!!! Best deoderant i've ever tried and i've tried them all

I also use Certain Dry AM in the morning or throughout the day just as a refresher (especially if i've been at the animal shelter all day or worked out) it smells good and keeps me all fresh! And once again- no pit stains

I have used Secret for years. However, I think I've developed an allergy to it because for the past several months or a year or more it makes me itch like crazy!!!
post #45 of 53
I have to alternate on a weekly basis or I break out in a nasty rash. I've got like 4 different tubes!

I used secret forever. Now I use Dove Cool one..love the smell and it works.

I use Liquid rock by "Kiss my Face", with Lavender. It's only available in health food stores. It's the same as Crystal except in liquid roll-on form. I like the lavender as lavender oil killes bacteria (part of the cause of BO). You can also get it in non-scented, and some other scents.

I think the secret to using it is to go for a bit without using anything, then try the crystal brands. I went on a canoe trip and went without. After this is when I started on Liquid Rock. It seemed to give it a clean palette to work with, so to speak.

I've used it for 4 years and it totally works. I think the Jason line makes something similiar.

I am a very sweaty, stinky woman, lol. I've tried Certain Dry but it dries out my skin so much, I get a rash if I use it every night. Using it every other day doesn't really help either.

Last night I tried the Secret Clinical Strength for the first time and I'm going without adding more today, just to see what happens. If I'm stinky and sweaty at any point, I think I'll have to pick up reg. deodorant for the daytime.

I hate being this sweaty, lol.

I only knew about the aluminum and breast cancer link, not the Alzheimer's one.

I switched to Toms of Maine when I learned about the aluminum. I've also tried Crystal, but I always had to reapply Crystal later in the day. Toms seems to last through the work day. I reapply if I'm going out at night, but then, I did that with antiperspirant too.

It's surprisingly hard to find a deodorant that's not an antiperspirant. Those are the only two brands that you can easily find around here, and they're usually on the bottom shelf. I think there are others if you shop at a natural foods store. I guess a lot of people are still using antiperspirants. The studies have not been conclusive, but personally, I'm not going to take the risk.

i didn't know they made a liquid roll on. i'll have to look for it. i have kiss-my-face lavendar, but it's a regular deodorant with enzymes. i'm switching back to it for a while since i don't think dove unscented was really doing anything (i smell the same-LOL).

Dove is the only one that works for me.

I'm gonna start using 2 deoderants because I get itchy and start sweating anyway when I start using 1 for too long. I like Degree best so far; right now I use Bam and it works too. I don't really care how soft my armpits are because I never wear sleeveless and go swimming like 2 times a year maybe. But both the Degree and Bam work good for me. I just want something to keep me from sweating, and for a long time! I generally don't stink too bad. (I used Lady Speed Stick, and it worked pretty well too)
I think the men's deoderants are stronger because men are, well, more stinky! Let's face it! I'll have to try some of that men's stuff...

Soft and Dry Baby Powder Scent.
