Son thinks he sweats too much ( for that read -like a normal human) but prob does need a stronger anti persp to give him confidence

What is the best one?

Mitchum - 48 hour protection - and it really does work!

JackandDiane Sun 10-Jul-16 22:34:18

thank you! I know there are loads

JackandDiane Sun 10-Jul-16 22:36:05

stick or spray

Stick Mitchum.
It's anti-perspirant he needs not deodorant. I was amazed when my 17 YO son told me lots of his friends didn't know the difference.

Mitchum roll on! My husband, teenage son and I all use it.

Thank you. It's now on the tesco order

oh too late but Imperial Leather anti p spray is v good. We get from the Factory Shop, is about a quid <bargain>

DS uses the Sure Extra Strength Cream and finds it better than the others

And he should make sure he has a clean top every day. Getting warm in an already worn top will smell.

Yes to an anti perspirant roll on. Much better than a body spray

Best thing for manky teens?
Autralian Body Care Tea Tree Skin Wash.
My DS has a fairly sensitive skin, some shampoos will react on his face where they wash out.
He uses the ABC as a face/body wash.
It doesn't smell strong after it's rinsed (so it doesn't clash with his beloved Lynx blush ) but is anti bacterial.

Ds does tons of sports and uses Dove clean scent 48hr spray ,works well. Clean clothes daily is vital!

JackandDiane Sun 10-Jul-16 23:50:09

He doesn't smell I know about washing and stuff hmm

MilicentKing Sun 10-Jul-16 23:53:46

Sorry OP. I just know that sometimes teenagers can be less than scrupulous about clothes. You don't say how old your son is, but I remember needing to gently tell my son when he was about 13 or 14 that he should start wearing a fresh shirt to school each day. Until puberty they can get away with it.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 10-Jul-16 23:58:03

If he doesn't smell you won't need deodorant recommendations then wink

No need to roll your eyes.

Random but soap under arms rather than shower gel works better for me
Dove/sure do a 48hr cream which is really good

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 11-Jul-16 00:06:38

Soap is much better,I agree.

It's the sweating. He hates sweating. Tbh even as a little boy he'd sweat through his head when playing football. He's almost 18

My dses use Perspirex - put it on at night. They only need it every 3 days - it works.

And deodorant - stops odours.
Anti-perspirant - stops perspiration.

JackandDiane Mon 11-Jul-16 07:37:20

Lol. Thank you everyone for the deodorant anti perp explanations.

I know that. Was just a short hand title.

I'll cancel the cheque too.

2nds Mon 11-Jul-16 07:42:41

Excessive sweating is a medical condition so it might be worth him going to see the GP.

EasternDailyStress Mon 11-Jul-16 07:46:23

Pmsl @"I'll cancel the cheque too"

JackandDiane Mon 11-Jul-16 08:08:32

Thanks 2nds I'm not sure it is. I think it's a teenage aversion to sweat. He and his dad for eg, if they mow the lawn will sweat

I'll think on
