I typically use Secret or Suave antiperspirant. Neither has given me any problems, but I decided to try Native deodorant in an effort to use something more "natural". Broke me out pretty badly. Since I'm not interested in trying a multitude of products to find one that doesn't break me out, I've just gone back to Suave for now.

I use whatever brand has the best price.
We used to use a Ban pump spray, no aerosol, many years ago until it was discontinued. We then discovered Crystal deodorant and have been using that for years now. It’s usually the crystal falling out of the holder when it becomes smaller that finishes it. DH even found small travel size ones for when he travelled. Good product and works well for us. It is not an anti-perspiration though if you are looking for dryness.

Whatever’s on sale. I still sweat no matter what I use, so I have no brand loyalty.

Always unscented. I switch up--Secret or Ban. Invisible solid.

Use the natural salt based deodorant because all other commercial brands will lead to discoloration of your skin and long term side effects from the titanium deoxide.

Count me in as another old spice user. Sport usually. I can't use anti-perspirants as they make me itch. I would like to, as the regular kind leaves me wet and sticky.

This is important to note. Get deodorant made of naturally occurring ingredients else you risk getting carcinogens into your body...
My uncle is a chemist and has done testing on non natural deodorants and the biological impacts some of the chemicals can have on us is scary.

I couldn't agree more--and the same with sunscreens. I'm one of those people who gets reactions from the slightest toxic chemical and so I've had to give up lots of products I used to use. They call us the canaries in the coalmines--what chemicals bother us are the tip of the iceberg and are not usually safe to use. Tom's of Maine ingredients in their deodorants--my not be 100% perfect but pretty darn good. Never have had a problem with it.


Ingredients. propylene glycol (vegetable derived), water, sodium stearate, organic Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, glyceryl laurate, natural fragrance, Humulus lupulus (hops) cone extract, organic Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, ascorbic acid, organic Cymbopogon flexuosus oil.

I have sensitive skin too. My mom found out at a early age when off the shelf baby lotion caused rash all over my body. She shifted to using all natural coconut oil instead and nothing happened, and advised me to always use natural products once I got older.

Old Spice has a collection called the Wild Collection and the one I use is called Dragonblast (or Dragon something or other like that). It has a mild, neutral amber scent that I think is suitable for either a man or a woman. It has no sharp chemical or piney smells so it blends well as an undertone to the rose or citrus scented perfumes or after-shower body sprays that I like to wear. I imagine it would blend just as well with men's colognes too because it is not overpowering. I like most of Old Spice's Wild Collection but that one works best for my body chemistry.
