    I use an all natural salt crystal deodorant. It comes in a solid rock crystal form, and a liquefied roll-on form. It works really well, it is not an antiperspirant, solely a deodorant.
    It does not contain any harmful chemicals, and lasts all day. The solid rock crystal lasts for months with regular use!!

    I myself prefer the ones that don't have a strong cologne-like scent. I used to use Degree Shower Clean, which was unisex, but they've now separated their scents into men's and women's categories. Unfortunately, "Shower Clean" is now labeled "Women" and was changed to have a more feminine smell. I must admit that I continue to use it.:redface: But it's great!:biggrin:

    For me, the best I have ever used is Secret Prescription Strength antiperspirant. It cost a little more, but it is well worth the money. I work in a Salon, and having my arm pits hanging over a persons head while they are laid back in the shampoo bowl, can not afford to have any smells..if you know what I mean.
    :cool:

    Burt's Bees makes a natural spray deodorant that contains no aluminum. My body becomes resistant to deodorants after about six months, but I have been using Burt's Bees for 3 years now, and it works like a charm. I've pretty much sold all of my friends on it. Give it a try.

    If you want to be *bone* dry and nobody's gonna be licking your pits, Certain-Dri. You put it on at night and it works all day and then some. But seriously, don't let anyone get a tongue near there.

    I'm actually *shocked* at the quality of Axe Proximity's _Amber_ fragrance. It's the first Axe product I've ever smelled that I instantly said 'Wow, that's excellent'.

    Be aware of the distinction between deodorant and antiperspirant. A deodorant is classed as cosmetic and does nothing for wetness, which is what causes most of the odor. An antiperspirant is classed as a drug and reduces wetness. The FDA requires that antiperspirants to be proved effective in a clinical trial as is required for any drug.

    Degree, Secret, and Mitchum previously mentioned are all antiperspirants.

    I use Ban, a classic antiperspirant. For some reason, aluminum chlorhydrate works better for me.

    Most [all?] antiperspirants use some type of aluminum salt.

    If you want a classic guy scent, try Old Spice High Endurance regular scent, make sure it's the invisible solid though ,goes on smoother.

    I have been using this too. I like Old Spice brand -- nice old fashioned smell. I have probs with antiperspirants -- arm pits break out in hives after about 2 weeks. I like the natural salt crystal... don't really know what it is... I thought it was alum (a substance used to make pickles...).

    Herbal Clear

    Target used to sell it, but I now get it from amazon. It's a no scent deodorant that uses lichen extracts to neutralize any body odor. It usually lasts all day, even though evening workouts. I like it due to it being a natural product, no aluminum or parabans.

    I have to be careful- working in culinary I don't want a strong 'scent' and I seem to rotate thru... I agree about the aluminum salts as well (did I not read about suspected links to alzimhers (sp) and those?)

    I like the 'rock' as well- last for a very long time...

    Can't stand the newer products...very 'fake' smelling....

    My sons get embarrassed as I take teh tops off and smell them....(don't want "overpowering')

    I like Degree - I stay dry & the scents arent too strong, except for this little tiny one I bought once - I don't remember which it was, but the scent was WAY too strong...it overpowered everything & I smelled it ALL DAY...couldn't figure out where the smell was coming from until I took my shirt off that night...

    any other deodorants I've tried either burn or peel my skin...

    I liked Arm & Hammer deodorant. I won't use antiperspirants either. They scare me. It seems to be getting difficult to find just plain deodorants without antiperspirants in them. I'll have to try the Tom's of Maine.
