What kind of deodorant do y'all use? I'll find a brand and everything will smell great for a few weeks and then...BAM...it stops working and I have to change brands!
Does anyone else have this problem or am I just...extra stinky or something?
(BTW, DH says he never notices that I reek so it's not like I'm offending anybody with my odor!)

this is because your body builds up an immunity to it

I use currently soft and dry gel. Unscented


most people develop immunities to shampoo's and soaps and amazingly enough diet aid after three weeks so its a good idea to change brands with every new purchase

Those are two of the four that I have in my medicine cabinet! The scary thing is that the Speed Stick that I have is the men's version!

Well, it's nice to know that others have the same issues and that I'm not a complete freak!

I HAD the same problem, I have been using DOVE AEROSOL, for 2 years straight now. It is a little more expensive, but it works and it lasts. Two cans in 2 years.....not bad.

I had the same problem and O hated it!!! I always felt unconfortable. I found this stuff called Mitchum, and it works so good. It has a nice scent to it and it does last all day for me. On the sticker it says "So effective you could skip a day". That is what cought my eye, and I am sooo glad I bought it. I don't, however, go a day without putting any on.

Sounds like me. Deoderant don't last all day like the container says it will. I am one of those who can wash up good. Then still have reeky pits. It actually got someone to confront me on my former job that I stunk. I felt so bad after that. So now I use deoderant. Then sprinkle shower to shower powder on me also to extra hide the reekys

I think that everyone has a different type of body, that has different needs! It took me 25 years to find the right deoderant for me!!!

If you carry a small thing of baby powder in your purse....you can use a make up sponge and dab it on your arm pits during the day if you do not have your deo with you!

Secret, Secret, Secret. It's the only deodorant that ever works for me. Any time I try to switch to something else, it doesn't work.
