Underarm odor is one of those things that make even the most confident person self-conscious. As a country we spend 18 billion dollars a year on deodorants and antiperspirants and some of that money is spent on trying products that wind up not working. Below are three top rated deodorants that users feel offer the best protection against underarm odor we found through our search for best underarm deodorant.
Lavilin Deodorant Cream
This is an herbal deodorant cream that is applied every few days to stop odor. Unlike the “swipe and go” deodorant sticks, Lavilin goes on like a cream. Most users apply it at night and only need to reapply it twice a week or so. Lavilin is strictly an odor blocker and does not stop perspiration.
This product is all herbal and is a great alternative for people allergic to the ingredients in normal deodorants. The product goes on like a “mask” that you wear while sleeping, then in the morning just shower it off. Users state that the longer they use the product the less frequently they have to apply it. It is also great for people who suffer from strong body odor as Lavilin can be used in conjunction with other products. Just apply Lavilin at night, then a regular antiperspirant can be used in the morning.
Lavilin takes a few days to start to work so it is best to begin the product over a weekend when you can be around the house. Lavilin is a deodorant only, it does not stop sweat so even though users have a complete lack of underarm odor after applying it, they will still perspire.
SweatBlock is actually towelettes that have been treated with a strong (clinical strength) antiperspirant. The user dabs the cloth on their underarms or other areas that sweat. Each towelette is one application and one application can keep the user dry for up to a full week. People with hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating have found that this product stops or significantly reduces the amount of perspiration they produce.
This product is applied at night and it stops sweat almost from the first application. Many users report being completely dry until around day 6. Users that have hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating have said they can use this product at night once a week and a regular antiperspirant in the morning and be completely dry. Although the packaging states SweatBlock is for underarms, many people have used it on other parts of their body that sweat profusely, including the face, with no adverse reactions and great success.
Some users report the product stings the first few times it is applied although the sensation went away quickly. Other users report it is hard to get used to the clove smell of the product.
Gillette Clear Gel
This is a gel antiperspirant/deodorant that goes on clear and dries quickly. It provides 24-hour protection against odor and wetness and it was designed for active men who sweat profusely. The scent is light and clean and last all day.
This product is strong and users report a little goes a long way, so the container will last a long time. Most users find that one application keeps them dry and odor free for the entire day. Unlike some other products, it does not cause itching or burning so it can be used on sensitive skin. It is less expensive than other strong antiperspirants and it will not stain clothing.
Users had very little negative to say about this antiperspirant. The only comments were that it can be hard to get used to the gel feel and while the gel dries relatively quickly, you can’t put a shirt on until it is completely dry.
