Deodorant 101

Baxter of California Deodorant

One of our top-selling deodorants, and for good reason. David, our Senior Product Designer, spent the week testing this out and found it to be just what he needed. As a day-to-day deodorant he found that it got the job done and then some. When it came to application, he says, It went on smooth, felt cool and soothing, had a slight tingle (like a good tingle), and seemed to absorb immediately. He noted that for a scented deodorant it was light and gentle on my skin especially compared to drugstore brands. Overall, he says it is the epitome of balance. Light but still gives a feeling of protection, and has a pleasant scent that isnt overpowering. Im a fan. Sounds like a winner, David.

Kiehl's Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant Cream

I had the task of testing out this one. For someone who hits the gym several times a week and runs a bit on the hot side, Ive always stuck to my go-to powerful drugstore anti-perspirant stick. But, being the type who usually invests in a nice fragrance here and there, I always found that my deodorant clashed with my other scents. What I liked most about this cream, besides the fact that it kept sweat and odor at bay all day long, was that it was unscented. It was a great change of pace and I actually grew to like the cream application which you can either do by hand or by rubbing the tip under your arms.

PiperWai Natural Deodorant

When it comes to natural deodorant, we often think of subpar formulas that dont quite get the job done, but that couldnt be further from the truth for PiperWais deodorant cream. Our Senior Marketing Manager, Luke, spent the week experimenting with this cream and grew to love it. He did admit the application process was a bit interesting the first time, but came to realize that it's pretty easy and straightforwardjust like applying any other grooming product. What surprised him the most was how effective and pleasant-smelling the product was. He said, I wasnt sure how it was going to work, as the suggested application size was less than I would have applied, but I was incredibly surprised. It did its job, and helped absorb odor just as effectively as a traditional antiperspirant, but without the harsh chemicals, and was perfect for his sensitive skin.

Honorable Mention: Blla for Men Body Powder

Looking for odor and wetness protection elsewhere (hey, nether regions)? Reach for this body powder (another of our teams favorites), and give chafing and wetness the boot.
