I use Mitchum too
I use Mitchum too
I have started using nivea sensitive protect, it has been working really well for me and it doesn't have much of a smell
Sent from my GT-I9305 using BubHub
I use Nivea Invisible Black And White. It's really good. It has a smell. I like underarm deodorants that have a scent.
I used to use Mitchum, but it certainly wasn't so effective that I could miss a day ... I still used to sweat a heap and get BO while using it daily.
Then I had a holiday at home and stopped bothering with the antiperspirant and my sweating also decreased. I don't need to bother with one at all now. Any sweating I get is still way less than when I was using antiperspirant. The same is true for the BO (almost never occurs now). Sometimes if I want a scent I'll use a body spray or perfume.
I use one from Mecca cosmetica, I can't think of the name and I'm too comfy to get up and look but it's a eucalyptus one that is aluminium free etc. I find it to be REALLY good, but its about $30. Lasts ages though.
Otherwise I use apple cidar vinegar, just wipe a bit under my arms with a sea sponge. It smells vinegary for a few minutes then the smell disappears but I think it works by killing the bacteria that causes the odour. I do t think either stop sweating but I don't sweat a lot so not sure.
As PP said, coconut oil works quite well too (haven't tried it with bicarb). My mum uses one from lush that wirks well too, and ive heard the body shop ones are also good. I haven't used 'real' deodorant for years, so maybe like felicita said your body gets accustomed to it or something?
ETA, just had a look, it's called Malin and Goetz.

I put coconut oil on my pits then a dusting of bicarb soda. Does the trick no probs. You can also make a mixture of coconut oil, bicarb and arrowroot powder. And add some drops of essence if you like a nice scent.

Ay of the Nivea sprays or rolls on...
I use lush solid deodornt
Lumi- not exactly sure what driclor is, it is like an anti sweating agent. It's great if you want to stop getting wet marks under your arms in certain colour tops. It's a roll on, I got it from chemist warehouse for about $12. Lasts ages!
