I have been using Bionsen for a while, but I think I need something a bit more heavy duty (hello menopause...) blush
I'd rather not go back to anti perspirants with aluminium, so please tell me of your fabulous aluminium free discoveries! Bonus points if it doesn't break the bank.

Have you tried Lush's? -

Earth Conscious do a lovely lavender one which works brilliantly! earthconscious.co.uk/

I've tried a few. JASON apricot stick - not much more effective than using nothing. Lush's solid deoderant - after a while I got a swollen blocked pore in one armpit which was alarming at the time as I originally thought it was a lump. So I stopped using that as I thought it was the cause, although am tempted to try again since it's the only one that worked at all. Thursday Plantation Tea tree deoderant - useless and the overwhelming tea tree scent was worse than my sweat. Am using bionsen at present too, but still don't find it all that good (and also think it pongs a bit).

I use PitRok for men. I still sweat, but I don't smell.

After much agonising I have just popped a "traditional" deodorant into my online supermarket shop.
I am not convinced that aluminium really is that harmful if you look at the actual studies, and I need to be non-whiffy as I am starting a new job.
