Which deodorant is the best?

So I sweat a lot. Way too much, and I need a great antiperspirant. Like many products in the US, there are a million to choose from. So which deodorant/antiperspirant did I choose?

Because of the sweating, I have tried lots of deodorants and antiperspirants — Old Spice of course (all the types, there are tons), Degree, Axe, natural ones, the list goes on — if you’re a male who sweats a lot, you know what I’m talking about. But personally, I keep coming back to a specific brand and specific scent — Mitchum Advanced Control Arctic Rush, even when some others — and yes, I have tried a ton, even the “clinical” ones, including Mitchum’s clinical version — say they’re better, or smell better and so on.

Who knows, your specific deodorant that works for you might depend on your individual chemistry, I am no chemist, but I hear there are a bunch of bacteria in those pits! So Mitchum is what I use. Give me any sort of free deodorant and I will throw it in the trash (or donate them if I haven’t used them). Just not worth using others (at least for now — innovation never hurt anyone, right?).

Anyways, the Mitchum Advanced Control works well, at the least I have figured out because of its high percentage of aluminum chlorohydrate vs. other deodorants/antiperspirants. Pseudo-scientists will disapprove of this deodorant for this reason — that’s fine with me — I sweat way too much and I highly doubt my pores are clogged as much as skeptics would suggest. Heck, if it works, I will keep using it.

Right now I use the solid stick, although in the past I’ve used the gel versions, which work well too. Just a funny texture — that is, I like the solids better, just a personal preference.
