I have yet to find a deodorant and antiperspirant that actually works all day. I currently use Secret Clinical strength and I do use it the way the instructions say to (put it on before bed). It works pretty ok for keeping the sweat at bay at least as long as I don’t spend too much time outside in the heat. But I do find myself able to smell myself part way through the day. Like, what the hell? I also tried using Certain-Dri but the rules for using it are way too stringent and it ends up irritating my armpits. Anybody have anything good that actually does both things all day long?? Extra bonus if it is the clear kind that doesn’t make white marks on black tank tops. 🙂

I have been using Lady Speed Stick STAINGUARD since I was 21. I was actually part of the ‘test group’ for it here in Canada. I am 28 now and I can count on one hand the times it has let me down.
I put in on, let it dry for maybe five minutes and I am golden. It leaves no deoderant marks on clothes, no sweat marks (unless I am in a EXTREMELY sweaty situation…which is RARE for me!). If I changed my outfit I’d maybe do a ‘touchup’ if it has been a particularily sweaty day….but for normal use I get all day protection out of it.

I’m in the UK and used Mitchum (ladies’ version!). It’s really good. I used it when i went abroad somewhere very hot for the 48 hour claim but since then I’m hooked. No marks, seems to last and no irritation, plus the pink one smells great.
It sounds from the ones you mentioned that you’re in another country (US?) but I thought I’d put it out there in case they sell it, and for any UK bees.

I love Tom’s of Maine. It works better than any other brand I’ve tried, it’s clear, and it doesn’t have aluminum.

I like the Dove brand. My armpits get irritated easily from shaving sometimes and the Dove one I use is soothing to my skin. And it’s long lasting. I used to use Secret but it stopped being as effective after a few years

I use Degree Ultraclear Solid in Pure Clean (it’s the one with the little black dress on it) and have for years. It works all day for me and doesn’t chafe or wear off. It will leave white marks on clothes if you put them on right after application, but I’ve never had a problem brushing them off with water.
I like it because it’s easy, dry application and it doesn’t smell like a herd of rampaging flowers lol, it’s pretty neutral smelling, like soap.

I actually use men’s deodorant…Old Spice “Wolfthorn” smells like fruit snacks, so I don’t smell like a man. You can get solid or gel.

betterbuckley : Same here! I love that scent and it’s not at all manly. The last time I needed deodorant I swear I sniffed every single woman’s deodorant and hated the smell of them all. Baby powder? Blech! Lavender or some floral scent? Yuck! I’m so sick of Dove’s cucumber scent since I’ve gotten a million samples of that so I never want to smell that again. After about six hours in CVS it finally occurred to me to try some of the men’s scents. I loved Wolfthorn and now I’m never going back to icky women’s scents. Until, you know, they inevitably discontinue it like they do with everything I love in this world. That will be a sad, sad day.

Degree for men. It’s amazing and LASTS all day

foranotherworld : I second Tom’s. However, when I’m not pregnant I swear by DK Cashmere Mist–it’s worth the price! It’s not clear but it absorbs quickly and it never comes off on my clothes.

I use Rocky Mountain Soap Company’s deodorant: https://www.rockymountainsoap.com/collections/body-care/Deodorant
It’s awesome and natural, as well as cruelty-free. Zero white marks. No aluminum. My sister and I are both using it now.

I used Lady Speed Stick and put it on in the morning (and again after my post-workout shower). I’ve had good luck with Dove, too.

If you haven’t yet tried a natural deodorant balm, you absolutely HAVE TO do it. I’ve been using this miracle all summer, and I really regret not knowing about it on my wedding day- https://thrivemarket.com/simply-fair-deoderant-balm-lavender-2-oz . Mine is unscented, because I like to use my own perfume afterwards. This works for me even up to 48 hrs. I’m talking 95+ summer heat, running, dancing and doing all kinds of stuff. It doesn’t stop you from sweating, but it is much less and no odor at all. It is actually super unhealthy not to sweat, your body cannot detoxify and there’s also a danger of overheating.
I’ve heard there are other brands with similar formulas that also work well. Applying it seems like a hassle at first, because you need to massage it like a regular cream/balm into your skin. But it works like a charm and is so worth it. Also saves you the trouble of carrying deodorant with you all day – one application in the morning is all it takes.

i use secret outlast. for a while i was using a crystal deodorant and it worked really well and since it’s a crystal, it leaves no white marks or residue whatsoever. but it’s only a deodorant, it’s not an anti-perspirant, so i would have to use certain-dri along with it. i still use certain dri from time to time, but i feel you on the usage instructions for that one. i ended up with irritated armpits a few times myself
