underarm odor

lox9May 22, 2006

I have had a problem with underarm odor for some time, regular anti-perspirant and deodorants don't help. They are also staining my white clothes (yellow). Does anybody have any suggestions??? Thanks

I've heard the crystal deodrants work really well.

I started using the crystal when I found out that anti perspirants could cause breast cancer. You use it after your shower on your still wet pits and astonishingly enough NO ODOR!!

I started using the crystal too. Regular anti perspirant freaks me out. I LOVE the crystal kind. I have a roll-on and it works so well. No odor at all, works much better than deodorant!

I found the crystal stuff in liquid form in a spray bottle. It works well as a deodorant, not an antiperspirant. And it doesn't sting after shaving.

I find Certain Dri works very well. You can't find it everywhere, I found it at Krogers. It is used at night.

I also find that if I use a deoderant soap with a lofa it really scrubs away underarm odor much better then using a washcloth.

Ban has just recently come out with a new formula in a lt. green container. The roll-on is great! It doesn't have the same formula that the solid in the green container has. Get the roll-on! I hate roll-on but I have very bad odor and this is the only one that doesn't fail me (and my daughter who got me onto it.)

Thanks amyta. I will keep that in mind. Before your post, I had ordered the crystals and they are working quite well. Thanks

"I started using the crystal when I found out that anti perspirants could cause breast cancer."

Wow. I didn't know people still believed that urban myth.

The crystal stick is like a MIRACLE - no odor ever, no scent to make you allergic and it lasts forever! Love it!

If you want to use regular (non-crystal), try Mitchum solid. I think that's the best of all the products on the market. For me, nothing else works as well.
