What do yours use? It seems quite early to me. Where did my tiny little boy go?

The Tesco Cotton Fresh roll on here.

My dd uses a cream anti perspiration as the roll ons are too wet for her and she misses when using the spray on ones!

No not early at all. If you go into a year 5 class after PE there are quite a few that could do with using some. Dd2 started needing deodorant at around 9.5 and I got her a five roll on.

ds(10) has been using Bionsen roll on Deodorant since he was about 8 and started getting whiffy after sports and/or all day in school. He only uses it a couple of times a week when he doesn't wash when he's got sports on.

Aluminium, parabens and alchol free. We get it in Tesco.

I've had to get yr 3 ds some this summer Sad

We got one from boots for children without the nasties. I think it was called keep it kind. It has worked.

DS (9- 10 in September) asked me very shyly if I could buy him a deodorant as he said he was a bit self conscious about persperating badly during Tennis and Judo and also school PE lessons. I didn't think he smelt but I bought some anyway as he's been moved up a year and likes to be like the other boys. I bought him a Dove spray one. He seems content with it and at least he'll already be using deodorant when he starts to swear more.

dd (8) has needed some this year which I thought young but she definitely needs it. We use boinsen here as seemed one of most natural ones. works well too.
