I’ve been using the same deodorant since I was a teenager. It’s not because I think it’s particularly amazing or because of its price tag (though it is a drugstore brand). Nope, it’s plain old product inertia. Since I’ve been known to try upwards of a dozen different skincare products in a week, it’s high time I start being more experimental with my personal care. Here, five standout deodorants for your non-sweating pleasure:
Bored of being powder-fresh? Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant
Wallpaper and Esquire are big fans, so who am I to argue? Malin + Goetz’s unisex antiperspirant is aluminum-free and extra effective, thanks to the naturally antibacterial and antiseptic eucalyptus extract. Plus, it smells incredibly fresh.
Natural and delicious: Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant
I’m already addicted to Lavanila’s bodywash, so I had a good feeling about their deodorant. I tried the Vanilla Grapefruit, which is a soft solid that goes on slightly white. Unlike saccharine vanilla products, this one is clean and delicious. It kept me dry all through a flowy vinyasa class — and I even smelled good after!
Chic and clear: Fresh Sugar Deodorant
I’d give this ladylike number to my chicest friends — the scent is lovely and the clear formula won’t stain your pretty blouses. It’s not the most hardcore formula, though — don’t wear it to work out.

Serious sweat protection: DERMAdoctor Med-e-Tate Wipes
Sometimes regular deodorants just don’t cut it. These medicated wipes are designed to curb excessive perspiration — and they really work. They’re perfect for times when you really can’t afford to sweat (think summer weddings where silk is mandatory).
When anti-antiperspirant isn’t enough, doctors are prescribing a very surprising treatment: Botox. We gave it a try — find out if it worked.
