constant struggle

deoderant that doesn't ruin your shirts

Recommended Posts

I've used Crystal deoderant exclusively for a couple of years now. It works way better than any of the natural ones I've tried like Tom's as far as preventing stink goes. I used to go with the rock, which lasts forever, but have found for me the liquid one works a bit better.

Thanks for the recs, guys. I know I should but my girl would always tell me I don't stink and shit so I just didn't really feel a need. Lately, however, I feel like I can get a whiff of something if I sweat a lot...might be diet related but might as well start using deodorant now.

 

@brooks_ I presume this is the one you're talking about? http://store.thecrystal.com/crystal-body-deodorant-spray---unscented-p3.aspx

 

I can't find any info on a Nivea x Dove (lol) but I do see individual ones from each company with Pure in the name. I'm assuming both use aluminum(?) which would be a no-no for me.

similar for cheaper non-invasive deodorant is (at least in Asia) Nivea Invisible. doesn't stain black & white clothing; by extension none of my other clothes have suffered either. marketed as an antiperspirant too but it feels more like a perspiration regulator than a straight-up no-sweat type deal?

this happens often when switching from normal drugstore stuff (I forget which brand, but one actually warns that it will take 2 weeks to adjust). Also did the switch recently (although I got Menscience) and the first couple times I used it, it burned like hell and my armpits also got really red, but I continued and then it went away after a few days and now I don't have any issues when applying. I will never go back to drugstore crap.

Pitrok natural spray. Alcohol and aluminium free, so good for sensitive skin. Unscented so you can spray away.

shaving (to skin) usually makes it worse, although trimming definitely helps.

 

i used to have significant hyperhydrosis from about 16-25 (28 now) and went to bed with driclor or mitchum most nights. i'm thankful that it has significantly improved, although i doubt it will ever go away. personally i've found adidas 'intensive cool & dry 72hrs' to work the best for me as most of the higher end products (m+g etc) are either too weak and/or just irritate my skin.

for the aus bros who wanna be cheap - $5 from woolworths, basically just witch hazel? scent isn't bad and isn't obvious

 

barely a hint of stink on my gym tshirts, no smell of anything on my oxfords while sweaty all day, and no residue at all on skin or shirts

Pretty disappointed with the Aesop spray. Weird to say as I bought it three times after my bottles ran out, but I eventually realized it's not that good - esp. for $35. I went back to my Arm & Hammer and haven't looked back at my full bottle of Aesop.

Aesop stains for me and doesn't even work that well as a deodorizer, I still have half a bottle left. Malin and Goetz is my standby but I use it too fast and sometimes I get random pit burns from using it. The best shit ive used is clear roll-on liquid (Nivea? I think) in China. It doesn't stain, doesn't really have a scent and works really well. Only problem is that it comes in a glass container which is heavy and it also doesn't last very long.
