What deodorant/anti-perspirant do use and why?

I can't pick a good deodorant, they just don't work as good as they say on the tin and strangely it's worse as soon as I've put it on. I'd really like to know what ones everyone else think works best.

Mitchum never seemed to work well for me (must have strange skin)! I always use the sure ones that aren't supposed to leave white marks.

Mitchum for me as well ...... unless I can get my hands on Lady Speed Stick .

bionsen spray - aluminum free & works properly

Natural crystal deodorant, I also wash my pits morning and night and don't smell. I don't sweat much though.

Bionsen roll on because it's aluminium free but I've just bought a new one which I haven't tried yet - Sukin aluminium and paraben free with a pump spray. I like the Sukin products.

The Dove one in the box here. It is the best deodorant I have ever used. The Mitchum didn't work for me, unfortunately.

Massive linky fail <bah>. Try again here

Mitchum for me too, nothing else seems to work on me!

Mitchum spray or the Sure stick.

Mum unscented roll on. I'd like to be able to use crystal deodorant but it stopped working after a while. Mum has the fewest ingredients I could find and works well for me. I don't like anything too 'chemically' on my skin or being sucked into my family's lungs!

I use Sure 48 hr spray. When I was a teen this was the one I found that worked. It has kept working so I've kept using it smile

wow - thanks for so many comments. Mitchum sounds a winner, although I'm sure I tried it once and found it quite sticky. Will try again though. I have sweat patches as soon as I leave the house at the moment - not attractive.

I used to use Mitchum but it was too strong for my skin and made it dry and itch (tmi!)
I now use a crystal deodorant - its just a crystal that you wet and rub under your arms and it's fab! Lasts forever, doesn't sting and has no smell so doesn't interfere with perfume smile

I'm a Sweaty Betty and Mitchum didn't touch my sweat, massive wet patches on even loose clothes. So now I use the Sure 48 hour one in a box. I spend my days underdressed so I don't get even slightly warm, as then the wetness begins. Oddly, I don't sweat more from my pits when I excercise, it really is an all day sweating thing.

I'm not a very sweaty person so use a dove spray, the no white marks one. In the summer I do sweat and use Mitchum the solid stick version. Generally I find the stick versions much better than the spray and they don't take ages to dry like a roll on.
