I completely agree that deoderants seem to stop working. For years, my standard was the Vaseline stick (smelled lovely until it stopped working), with Dove (stick) or Mitchum spray as a respite. But as well as not being totally effective, I also found I would get a rash/broken skin/bit of eczema under my arms in hot weather, which gets really sore.
This year I am doing an experiment and only using men's deodorant, as I had an inkling that it had different active ingredients. Works a treat! Very effective and no broken skin. The only thing is, you have to find one that doesn't smell too manly. Sure Sensitive for Men is good :)

Just to add something into the mix. I stopped using deodorant on a daily basis about 3 years ago as a test.
Very very honest responses from friends is complete shock as I don't smell at all.
The only times I do apply it are during very sweaty summer days.

A lot of people who use it won't need it.
I hate the thought of blocking up my pores, so I use deodorant without aluminium and wouldn't dream of using anti-antiperspirant. We're designed to sweat, damnit cosmetics companies
I hate DP smelling like a candy shop too. I complain when he puts it on for work!

I think you can definitely build up a resistance. I used to use Sure (just the normal spray, not maximum strength) but felt that it wasn't keeping me as dry as it used to. Swapped to Garnier Minerals over a year ago and have been really happy with it. Am just about to swap back to Sure (because it was on an offer last week and Garnier Minerals wasn't) to see whether I've lost my immunity to it, so if I remember I'll report back in a couple of weeks!
