Take the guesswork out of underarm care with this easy deodorant decoder.
FOR THE BUSINESSMAN
Mitchum Power Gel, $5
With banks closing and the stock market on a rollercoaster, keeping cool at work has never been tougher. This clear-drying gel provides all-day protection, so there's no need to worry about ruining suit jackets or button-downs.
FOR THE LADIES MAN
Axe Dark Temptation Deodorant Body Spray, $5
Women love chocolate. But dousing yourself in hot fudge before a date has never been an option — until now. Since it combines spicy musk and gourmet chocolate, if you can't get a girl wearing this, body odor may be the least of your problems.
FOR THE GREEN GUY
Burt's Bees Natural Skin Care For men Deodorant, $8
Made with 100% all-natural ingredients and post-consumer recycled packaging, Burt's is just as Earth-friendly as it is effective. (The smell comes from a blend of all-natural odor eliminators.)
FOR THE ATHLETE
Old Spice Pro Strength Antiperspirant/Deodorant, $8
Apply before bed, as your sweat rate slows. The gel forms tiny plugs in your sweat glands, protecting you from sweat the next day — so there's no need to double-dip
FOR THE SUPER-SWEATY GUY
Gillette Clinical Strength Antiperspirant/Deodorant, $10
Ultra Comfort is the real deal: a prescription-strength, dermatologist-tested gel that not only prevents sweating but also soothes sensitive skin. And since it's virtually scent-free, you never end up smelling like a pharmacy.
FOR THE METRO GUY
Clarins Men Antiperspirant Deo Stick, $14
If scouring department stores is your weekend sport, make this your next purchase. It has orange and lemon oils to neutralize odor and fight dryness while providing simultaneous daylong protection against sweat.
