Now when I talk I have this weird axe scent.
I’m sure this question is totally new and definitely wasn’t asked yesterday, the day before yesterday, or the day before that, so I’m just gonna spam the sub with yet another question that I could look up Amazon reviews for~
I am a woman and I hate most female deodorants. For some reason, being able to smell it all day gives me a headache and makes me nauseous. I switched to a men’s deodorant that has a nice smell that fades away to no smell at all and works better than the women’s deodorants. I’m not less of a woman because I use a product meant for a man.
I know the title sounds dramatic and to some degree it is, but I can’t tell you how frustrating it’s been to feel uncomfortable in my body since puberty (happened early for me, around 9.)
I’ve been self conscious for a lot of reasons, one being that I could /never/ find a deodorant that worked for me. I was showering twice a day, morning and night, just to feel clean. I never felt feminine wearing perfume and never loved a scent on me like I did in the store.
These are little things, but especially before I finally broke into my degree field and found an office job, they really affected my day to day life. I used to waste breaks at my retail job reapplying deodorant in the bathroom especially during spring and summer months.
It made intimacy hard. I was constantly ashamed and worried about being typecast “the dirty, overweight girl.”
Recently I made the switch to men’s deodorant not quite convinced there would be a difference and it’s literally game changing. I apply it once and it lasts all day. No reapplying. No worrying about whether or not I moved deodorant over when I changed purses. I wear perfume and just bought a fall scented body spray and have fallen in love with it for the first time. I feel like a new person.
This should be a short post but I do need help because I wanna fix this. My girlfriend suffers from high functioning autism and isn't traditionally intelligent. So she educates herself on social issues but she doesn't always use reputable sources.
So she read an article about how "big pharma" has been poisoning and clogging the glands of your armpit with deodorant. So she stopped using it. Another important note is that she doesn't shave to stick it to the patriarchy.
We live Arizona and this has been literally miserable. She loves to cuddle,hug, and lay together but everytime we get close the stench of BO is just overwhelming. She noticed and confronted me and I told the truth. She wasn't very happy and told me that this was her way to stay safe and make a difference.
To avoid further conflict I just dropped it. Since then its getting worse. She's on her way to tossing out body wash and making her own. While I like this idea, she's made no effort to learn about the process.
Is there anyway I can convince her to let this go? I don't think that this a hill worth dying on.
He coulda silence a lot of haters by providing excellent odor protection. Plus that Alaska airlines warriors agreement is probably hella over now that he dipped from the warriors. I don’t see any other sponsorship making sense tbh
My mother won’t buy me Old Spice because “it’s for men” and the “ph balance is different”. I find this ridiculous since men’s deodorant stays better and I wanna smell like a northern river bed rather than a Bath & Body Works.
Anyone else use men’s stuff? Has it transformed you into a hulking lumberjack yet?
This is more of a silly and stupid rant but idk I wanna know if any of you have noticed a difference or prefer one or the other
4 fucking arms on this man meaning four seperate armpits WTF THIS GUY IS SO FUCKING WASTEFUL WITH EVERYTHING. DEODORANT. CLONE BOIS. Bet this guy doesn’t even say please or thank you. What a cunt.
Also good to have: spare socks, spare men’s and women’s underwear in different sizes. Also, for men, buy a box of feminine products to have stashed away.
For whatever reason, if you have a friend or relative that needs to crash at your place in an emergency, and they have nothing with them... these small extra items can do wonders for their comfort without breaking the bank.
Extra LPT: you can also apply your cologne or perfume to the search party members, also, rip apart some pieces of cloth and leave them behind you as a trail for your pet to find its home. Good luck!
So like many if us, T changed my natural musk and made it a lot more potent. I'm still having a hard time nailing down my new go to hygiene products/routine. I have sensitive skin and it does better with 2/3 showers a week (i used to get away with 1). But lately I've been getting so funky that notice it daily and it's strong enough to make want to shower. Because of my tricky skin, I try to use products with really simple ingredients. I try to avoid fragrances or at least only use stuff with natural fragrance if that isn't an option. But no matter how gentile my soaps, too much showering and I get a little rashy. I need to find a deodorant that excels at oder neutralizing vs odor masking, is good for sensitive skin, and isn't terribly expensive. I can justify spending a little more if the results are worth it's value, but I feel like I go through so many sticks of deodorant due to my constant need to re-apply and I don't want to make a huge financial sacrifice over this. I'm aware of some kinds I can try, but I'd like to have some testimonials from people in my shoes. Thanks!
So I was on Tinder and met someone who I vibed with on every level and our time together was beautiful, but I noticed he was stinky like body odor. I figured it was from our strenuous hike so I ignored it.
We hung out again a few days later and I noticed the smell smacked me in the face when I walked in his house. He was running behind so I waited in the living room while he finished getting ready. I heard the shower run so I was hoping he would pop out smelling fresh... but the stench was worse! I smelled his odor from several feet away.
I began to think it was me and I snuck a sniff at my own pit, and after catching me, he casually mentioned “oh it might be me. I don’t believe in deodorant” I asked why and he went on to talk about how he wants to find genuine connections and believes smell was a distraction, so he doesn’t use deodorant, soap, or toothpaste. I asked him why not opt for unscented options and he explained how it would take away his natural (awful) scent.
So is it mean to ask him to clean up or am I a jerk for I’m feeling this way? Is he normal in his feelings?
I just started using Schmidt’s and I find it so irritating. My underarms are so red and bumpy from this product. What other affordable options are there?
Leave the house and forget to put deodorant on? Your covered, no need to turn around.
With this humidity lately I'm sweating a bit more and with a bunch of free time I'm hitting the gym more, so the sweats pretty manky.
I normally use the old men's faithfuls of Rexona and Nivea. But I'm having more and more trouble with sensitive skin under my arms and in general.
So looking for recommendations from other Brissie guys about what deodorants they use, and any info from guys who have used those natural deodorants and stuff.
Also wouldn't mind info on what scents you've guys found. Not so much the weird "Active" or "Sport" but what they actually smell like.
