I found Pitrock and Toms of Maine to be ineffective. By far the best deodorant I have used is Aubrey's Northwoods Herbal Pine Deodorant.The scent lasts all day and is not overly masculine. I would not use anything else. Some decent healthfood shops stock it otherwise you can get it online.www.aubreyorganicsuk.co.uk I have also used Dr.Hauschka roll on.It comes in two scents Floral and Fresh.It costs £11.95 for 50ml. Lavera's deodorants are good and come in a variety of scents.Roll on is £8.95 and spray £9.95.www.Soorganic.com
I've been using Toms of Maine (unscented) for a few years and I think it's really good, and has better deodorising properties than the anti-perspirant I used to use. I buy it in Sainsburys and have a recollection that I didn't see it in Boots the last time I looked, so I don't know how widely available it is.
I have been pleased with Lush deodorant bars, and with Toms of Maine.
I thought Pitrok was fantastic, but it smashes very easily if you drop it, and also I found that the rock itself started to smell awful after a while, even though I was very careful about only using it on freshly washed skin. I tried several times and always ended up throwing it out when I'd only used about a third of it.
Pitrok is amazing! Much better than those messy things at Lush. They sell Pitrok in Boots and Superdrug and it seriously stops any smells at all. I have the unscented stick which lasts for ages and also the roll-on for travel. I've had no ingrown hairs or armpit irritation since I started using it.
