Unhappy sigh....will I ever find the right one?

the right friggin DEODARNT, that is!

I'm sure you've read my many adventures searching for the right deodarant.....well, I decided to take the old spice hi-endurace challenge a few weeks ago.

At first, I didnt like it...it was kinda drippy and melty gross...

but then, it started building up a nice barrier. Kinda wierd, cause the shizz doesnt wash off! When I take a shower, the deodarant just STAYS! I have this permanent invisible sheild on my armpits! its kind of annoying.....

now, my armpits are getting kinda itchy.....its this annoying burning itch sensation.

I'm really unhappy. thats it! I'm going deodarantless from now on! if I stink, I dont care anymore! gggrrrrrrrrrr

Try Almay unscented gel. It's excellent. I know how you feel about gel deodarants, but give it a try.

at least yours doesn't leave yellow stains on your t-shirts. I change my undershirts daily and still seem to get them.

I'm thinking now, I'm just going to buy new tshirts monthly...

Thumbs up

you know what i found worked very very well is Women's Secret deodarant - the original.

my armpits used to sweat a lot, stain my t-shirts, and get rashy. i tried all kinds of stuff, then my doctor said to try a deodarant soap and to use women's Secret deodarant.

so i switched to Irish Spring Sport Deodarant soap, and use my fiance's Secret. sure enough no more sweating and staining t-shirts. pluss you smell pretty

good luck,

justin

I dont know if you can get it up there, but I use this Tom's of Maine stuff. It's not the strongest stuff in the world, but it's all natural so it doesnt sting or make me break out or anything. And it's a deodorant only, not an anti-perspirant.

I use Right Guard Sport Stick anti-persperant/deoderant. The invisible solid. Not the gel crap. This stuff lasts all day and then some. Of course, I don't sweat much during the course of a normal day.

Hey goose my man!!!!!

I did the same thing, got the same problem, kind of itchy, dry, burning type of feeling.

Try out the Old Spice HighEndurance "RED ZONE" It should work wonders. I figured going one step higher on the power scale would make it worse, but I've been using the stuff for like 2 years now with great protection and never a problem.

Whatever happened to five day deodorant pads?

I use Right Guard Super keep you smelling nice gel. Works well for me, for the most part, and no armpit dandruff or irritiation. I tried the first RG sport stick stuff and it felt like I had tacks under my arms.

Godspeed, John Gle...er, Goose.

Default same stuff.

I use the same stuff, and it's VERY hard to wash off. But you can, you just need to scrub hard. Thats probably why you're getting a rash. I've been using this deoderant for almost 6 months now with no problems.

just be glad you wernt using the solid stick high endurance..,you think you have buildup now.just imagine having clumps of deoderant stuck to your armpit hair, and you have to get a fine toothed comb out to get that crap off.. soap and water just doesnt work....reason number 1 i only used that particular deoderant for a week.

I'm using the right gilette p0wAr sTrYp3 deodarant and it works pretty well. Pets don't shy away as often, and people don't cry so much when they get near me.

Give it a shot. It does work pretty well.

isn't Red Zone the one that offers to buy you a stick of your old stuff if you don't like it?

anyways, i've found the key is 'rotation'. i keep about 3 different kinds of anti-perspirants at all times. i find that my pits build up a resistance/tolerance to the stuff if i only use one kind. currently, i'm sporting Degree, Mitchum, and Arm & Hammer (all unscented because it seems to be less irritating, less itchy)...

oh yea, and i use Tom's as well...doesn't stop the sweat, but sometimes you gotta let the pores breathe...who knows, keep experimenting!
