I don't want to smell perfumey, but I don't want to stink either! I stopped wearing deodorant for a long time as I just got fed up with it... Sometimes it would react with my natural body odour to create an even worse odour!... But now, I am ready to give it another try.

So what do you use??

I make my own as well grin

I use the second recipe here and I add a bit of tea tree oil and a bit of lavender maybe. I was really surprised by how well it works, because those pitrok ones and the other ones you get in health food shops etc NEVER did a thing for me. I thought I was just super stenchy!

Bee-it was a fiver but it seemed like if you bought 4 at a time it worked out less. I don't care if it works! I shall let you knowsmile

I used to love Secret deodorant. I stock up when I go to US. Bit pricey on eBay

I use the pitrock roll on, unperfumed. Works great. No smell at all, and if I skip a shower, I'm still not smelly.
The key with pitrock is using it straight after your shower. It needs to be used on clean skin. Then you're good to go for 24-48 hours or until your next shower!

Does the pitrock one need to go on damp skin then? I tried a crystal one once before and the main problem was that I have always kept deodorant in my bedroom so I just kept forgetting to put it on before leaving the bathroom then couldn't be bothered to go back (our bathroom is downstairs).

I only ever use deodorant that doesn't have aluminium in. I've tried Bionsen, which I think is a bit crap and very wet, Tom's, which I liked, PitRock which I also liked, and am about to try Sanex 0.

It's quite difficult to find them without aluminium as they all seem to have it.

I don't. I like my natural smell. My sweat smells like mild vinegar grin
