Mitcham deodorant - Has it changed ?

Does anyone think they've maybe changed Mitcham ? I've been using it for a long time ( the push up variety ) but it isn't lasting on me or dh as usual .

U don't think the new fragrances last as long. I know that sounds daft! But when I use the old and tested ones they still work. The new bamboo one was rubbish.

Yes agree the bamboo one is not good.
In an attempt to at least last the day have got the one for men but even that isn't keeping us fresh until the evening.

I've had trouble even getting the pure fresh fragrance stick Confused

Absolutely agree. I only use the powder fresh stick, it’s been SO hard to come by that I’ve used the bamboo one and it has done absolutely nothing whereas the powder fresh keeps me fresh for days!

I was thinking this last week and thought it was just me! It's certainly not as effective!

I hate the liquidy stick deodorant one, it takes ages to dry compared to the old one

The bamboo one is awful! Tried it because the one I normally get wasn't in stock so I thought another mitchum would be the next best thing. It was not. It made me stink! Although DH said I didn't smell of bo and apparently I did smell like the deodorant so apparently I just don't like the smell of eucalyptus or whatever it was. But it honestly started to smell so strong after I had worn it for several hours and I really didn't like it.

I used to be very happy with Mitchum unscented roll-on. Now it smells of sweat. Why would I want to roll sweaty smelling liquid onto my armpits?? The other 'flavours' are the same.

I've switched to Sanex.

The bamboo one is just a deodorant rather than an antiperspirant.

The bamboo one is definitely different and not as good.

But it's funny you should say this, because I've been noticing body odour lately which I never used to get with mitchum.

The gel Mitchum is better but can be harder to find.

Definitely changed. I’ve noticed I get sweaty or even smell of BO which never happened with Mitchum. I’m trying a few others instead.

I don't use the roll on but their cans are shocking, they just stop working before the deodorant has run out so I'm easily losing a quarter of a can lost times.

I thought that sweat smell was me!! I switched to the roll on as the stick had loads left but couldn't be used. Gone back to sure spray, should have stayed with it!

I'm using the Shower Fresh cream one at the moment and it STINKS! I've den rewashing clothing thinking it's gone musty and realised this morning it's the bloody deodorant! I've been using this brand for over a decade, what the hell are they playing at?

I'm glad it's just not me that's finding it not lasting well. I'd begun to worry something
had changed making me smell more !

So I’m not going mad!! Ffs. Mitchum was the only thing that works for me but it’s now not lasting.

Anyone found anything better??

I’ve returned several cans because of this.

I think the texture of the roll on has changed. Seems dryer (new stock, definitely not been stored anywhere) and the ball doesn’t work effectively. Had to roll it with my hands to get it to work.

Oh dear. This is the only one that has worked for me too in the past, so am watching this thread to see if there are any good alternatives...

There were production and stock issues for a while, so it could be that it is now made in a different factory or made differently due to supply issues etc.

I only use the rollons but couldn't get any for a good few months.

Oh no! I use the roll ins but I've got quite the stockpile to get through so it'll be a while before I have to buy new.

I stopped using the deodorant stick because I was frustrated at how much product was left in the holder when you could no longer push it up any further. Didn't seem like good value for money.

Agreed the cans are pure shite
