Does anyone have any recommendations for a good roll-on deodorant that isn't harsh on your skin?
I used Mum for years and years, but the last few months it stopped being effective (i.e. I'd start getting B.O. only a couple of hours after application). Someone recommended Mitchum to me, which I've been using the last month or two and has been very effective (lasts 24hrs plus), but today I've developed dry, scaly, mildly irritated skin under my arms, and I haven't done anything else to that area which could have caused it.. maybe the deodorant has dried my skin out too much??
Anyway, hopefully someone has a suggestion or two, TIA.

I use Dove with no probs and I react to most deodorants.

and contains no aluminium or harmful chemicals, so it is endorsed by the breast cancer foundation. It also means it has a really low irritant level, so good for those with sensitive skin.
They don't work for me personally, but I know heaps of people who swear by them - because not only are they natural, but one stick lasts a whole year.

only deoderant that works for me is Mitchum (the rest make me sweat heaps and smell after a few hours, whereas when i use Mitchum im good all day)
Only once or twice have i got a rash under my arm but I think thats more from my shavin than the deodrant
cant offer you any other suggestions as ive tried EVERYTHING haha

Yeah, the lady who recommended Mitchum swears by it and has been using it for years.. maybe I just put too much on yesterday morning or something.
Nevertheless I used my Mum today just to give my skin a rest!

I use moogoo's roll on (all natural and no aluminium, only problem is it leaves white marks)
Before that I used dove, and love the smell!

Hmm I normally use Dove or Nivea, haven't had any issues, but I don't think my skin is overly sensitive.
