Most guys don't put too much thought into buying deodorant. Breezing through the expansive aisle at the big box store, they grab a familiar brand or the most striking packaging. But all those different formulas? They were essentially created to achieve different results. Which means you could be a lot less sweaty and smelly if you stock your bathroom with the right stick for you.
Try Degree Men Adrenaline Series ($5, at Drugstore.com) which reacts to spikes in sweat-causing adrenaline and combats wetness with Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Gly, a newer ingredient that's much better tolerated by skin than the more traditional aluminum chloride.
Try the all natural Speick Deo Stick ($7, at West Coast Shaving). Made in Germany from organic ingredients, this deodorant (along with the brand's shave stick and soap) has a cult following because it's gentle on your skin and has a pleasant, masculine and long lasting scent.
Try Dove Men+Care 48h ($4, at Target) which promises to keep bad body odor at bay for up to two days. The long-lasting deodorant stick, made with skin-soothing moisturizer, has a subtle, clean scent that sticks around without being overpowering or competing with your cologne.
Try Speed Stick ($4, at Walgreens). In the age of Axe body sprays, promising instant sex with one squirt, there's something refreshing about the simplicity of Speed Stick. No false promises or gimmicks. Just good, clean American deodorant with a barbershop scent.
