To say Sanex 0% roll on deodorant is the worst deodorant ever?

I bought Sanex deodorant a few weeks ago. It says it gives 48 hours coverage but it is absolutely rubbish. It gives the same coverage against BO as splashing a bit of water under your armpits. By about 2pm I get whiffs of smelliness emanating from my pits. It is going in the bin. I got it on special offer, and now I think I know why the shop was trying to get rid of them...

I agree with you on this brand

Get some Mitchum instead. Brilliant stuff!

I like this sanex roll on sanex micro talc.

I got given a Nivea gift set with a roll on deodorant in it. It looks a bit pearlescent. Worst deodorant I've ever used in my life!

Is it 0% deodorant?

You need to get an antiperspirant.

Bloody hell are you me ?

I am a very unsweaty person but sanex makes me stink confused

mitchum powder fragrance is the way to go

I have used it for years as it is the only one I have found that I am not allergic to. I haven't had any problems with it and certainly find it lasts the whole day so 18+ hours. I haven't tested it for 48 hours but can't see why anyone would need to.

Mitchum here too. Used a sanex liquid stick type thing years ago and I absolutely stunk! So embarrassing. I suffer with sweat patches if I don't use mitchum but nothing ever made me smell apart from sanex!

Do those of you who use mitchum, use the stick/roll on or spray? Was wondering which was best?

Mitchum roll on is fantastic.

AnyFucker Sun 04-Jan-15 12:19:10

Have only tried the roll on but I find it great

SurlyCue Sun 04-Jan-15 12:24:13

Good thread. Ive been using sure spray anti perspirant but its shite. Thanks for mitchum recommendation.

sad I use Asda's 58p own brand roll on. I don't sweat under arms or smell awful at all. I also wear a lovely Aldi £3.99 eau de toilette.

flowers for self.

Mitchum roll on takes ages to dry. I sometimes resort to using the hairdryer to make it dry faster

Purplecircle Sun 04-Jan-15 12:48:26

Mitcham stick is good, no drying time

AnyFucker Sun 04-Jan-15 12:55:09

I never notice a problem with drying time

I keep a towel or my dressing gown on while I dry my hair (2 mins) et voila

I like the Sanex deodorants, although the purple is my favourite. I have sensitive underarms and can't use a spray everyday.

DH uses the women's Mitchum unscented spray.

Did you take the cap off? wink

Fruityb Sun 04-Jan-15 13:10:39

Not had any problems with mitchum roll on drying. Lasts all day as well. I used to spend all day with my arms clamped to my sides or boiling but not wanting to take my cardi off. I wasn't smelly I just suffered terribly with sweat patches no matter what I wore. Used mitchum for years and problem went overnight. Can't recommend it enough.

HotLipsHoulihan Sun 04-Jan-15 13:13:11

Nivea powder fresh all the way for me. Works very well

Ilovefluffysheep Sun 04-Jan-15 13:15:02

I must be the opposite to all of you! used to use the mitchum solid roll on for ages, but recently have found I get a bit stinky with it. Tried the sanex solid roll on, and it seems much better.

The absolute best deodorant is the Dove max protection cream (Sure do a very similar one) it's about a fiver in Boots but it has the same level of protection as Driclor without the pain. It pisses on the likes of Mitchum! You will not sweat while using it.
