to think that two different types of roll-on/spray shouldn't be needed to not smell

Serious post.

Very case of bad BO.

Bad bad bad.

Not sure why, never a problem before, but now it is.

Should a roll-on and a spray at the same time, both be required, or is there a perfectly acceptable version of each that will by itself, do the job?

Mitchum all the way.

Thanks everyone smile

Dove or sure maximum, they have to be applied the night before to work.

dh really rates gillette solid, I keep meaning to try it as it's cheaper and I find the smell of the maximum ones when I am trying to sleep keeps me awake, but I am weird. hmm

Driclor works really well. It's prescibed for excess perspiration. You can buy it from pharmacies and Boots I think.

I work my way through them
Then triple dry
Now on dove 48 cream and its the best so far

Mitchum is fab. Hope it works for you!

Driclor is fantastic.

mitchum is fab, but it does take a while to dry so I put it on, then dry hair before putting top on, or if not washing hair use hair dryer for quick blow under arms to encourage drying!

Dricolor or perspirex

Miracle stuff it really is

I must be a real sweaty betty - Mitchum doesn't touch my 'problem'.

Perspirex works but I don't like to use it regularly. And you can't use it on a day you've shaved as it stings so much; so alternate days at most...

Actually I find I smell least with perspirex/driclor, then next least with NO deodorant/antiperspirant at all, then most of all with any normal deodorant including Mitchum.

For me it has to be either Sure max or Dove max- I don't like the smell of mitchum and it makes my armpits stick together!

Driclor to get things under control then mitchum to keep it under control. As soon as it gets a bit warmer go back to the driclor for a bit, then go back to the mitchum.

Thank you - you have reminded me I need to get a new Driclor, spring is coming!

oh & whatever you do dont use the driclor after shaving, shave in the morning, driclor at night, mitchum next morning & you are good to go. It does sting for a few mins, but for me it is worth it.

Try growing your armpit's there for a reason.

I never had a BO problem before I had DD so much so I never wore deodorant. Since then I am stinky I now have to spray it on every morning which I suppose for most people thats normal. Any I just use vaseline spray deodorant but OH uses mitchum. He swears by it.

Mitcham roll ons are fab!

Can I just hijack & ask anyone know of something good against sweat that doesn't irritate?

Mitchum, dricolor etc, all irritate-I assume it's the aluminiun chlorate(?)

So, something with their strength sweat wise but gentle skin wise?

DrinkFeckArseGirls Wed 01-May-13 09:10:08

Oh yeah, I use Mitchum too. Fragrance free one to not mix the smell with perfume smile .

LadyClariceCannockMonty Wed 01-May-13 09:14:24

Mitchum doesn't do a thing for me; in fact none of the everyday ones do. I'm with Shiny – Driclor or Perspirex. The latter you used to have to buy from the pharmacist but you can now get it off the supermarket shelf, so no more basically broadcasting to the Boots queue 'Hi! I reek!'

SanitaryOwl Wed 01-May-13 11:10:55

You can see the doctor about this, as it can be a sign of an underlying problem.

Also, driclor or perspirex as previously mentioned.

BooksandaCuppa Wed 01-May-13 23:07:26

I've been offered botox but declined...

bugslife Wed 01-May-13 23:11:56

Mitchum here too. I read somewhere to apply at night for it to be most effective the next day?

LadyClariceCannockMonty Sun 05-May-13 11:31:11

diddl, the only other one I know is Perspirex but have you already tried that?

sooperdooper Sun 05-May-13 12:41:40

Another vote for Mitchum, I've been using it for years, nothing else seems to work for me but never have a problem using that

gindrinker Sun 05-May-13 13:33:58

Pitrok... Natural crystal thing. Wet it rub under armpits, allow to dry apply normal deodorant.
Kills the bacteria which causes the smells. Great stuff.

You don't use cold water to wash clothes do you?
These use cold water detergent in Oz and the USA, but I think they don't work.
All the clothes smelt weird.
