I am convinced that the manufacturers of Sure Deodrant have changed their formula, along with their new dildo-esque bottle. It doesn't seem nearly as effective.

Does anyone have a deodrant that they swear by that I can change to?

Do you prefer, solid, roll-on or spray?
I love Palmolive solid - just works so well and smells lovely

Dove roll-on.

the sanex upside down roll on its quite cheap too.

I prefer role on, not sure about the ones with a 'soapy' consistency, but I'll try the Palmolive one. I didn't find Sanex very good tbh. Maybe I'm just very sweaty. hmm

i liek sure but it makes my skin very dry

tesco are doing the palmolive soft and gentle spray, for a quid atm, i use it as an extra layer iyswim. My main deo is the vaseline aloe fresh cream.

I use Dove too

I have just changed to Dove (that nice grapefruit one) and despite being quite careful re waiting for it to dry before putting clothes on, but a couple of my light coloured tops now have those horrible yellow stains under the arms! sad Never happened with old one (Vaseline - which now seems to have disappeared from shop shelves!)

I think you have to change every few years. I used Sure for years and then it didnt seem to work so switched to Dove for a few years, but have noticed this isnt up to the job lately so switched back to Sure and its much better. Think its just a case of your body getting used to it. The Dove one which doesnt leave white marks is quite good.

For serious sweaty betty problem Linden Voss is superb. Expensive but lasts forever.

I used to use Dove, but got bored of it and now use Nivea pearl beauty (or something like that) and is really nice.

Also used the nivea no white marks one and this was ok at the no white marks situation, but not that great as a deoderant.

Dove stick is really good and their no-white-marks version is pretty effective too.
