Temperatures in Toronto have finally cooled down a little bit, but there are many hot days still to come. And if there’s anything the heat wave taught us, it’s that it’s time to up our deodorant game. Because what’s worse than sitting down on the TTC and wrinkling your nose at the scent of your neighbour’s ripe pits…? Realizing that it’s actually coming from you. So, next time sky-high temperatures or stressful deadlines have you sweating buckets, reach for one of these over-the-counter antiperspirants that offer clinical-level results.
Lady Mitchum Clinical Strength One
Available in three sweet scents, this antiperspirant offers the same wetness protection as a prescription product and kills odor-causing bacteria. And the major bonus? It does it all without leaving behind any white residue.
Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant Advanced Solid
With four times the perspiration protection from stress sweat than their ordinary antiperspirant, this odor fighter was the number one awarded deodorant among beauty magazines from 2008 to 2010. Give it a try if your vacation wasn’t the one-time stress cure you’d hoped for.
Gillette Advanced Solid Antiperspirant
Available in three masculine scents, this antiperspirant offers triple action protection from the pitfalls of perspiration. With prescription-strength wetness protection, odor fighting microcapsules, and moisturizers that minimize irritation, it’s guaranteed to offer the same results as a prescription product or your money back.
Dove Clinical Protection
Shaving is more likely to cause irritation during the summer months and this can result in dark marks on our underarms. This formula by Dove is designed to speed up the skin renewal process while keeping you dry all day.
Certain Dri Antiperspirant
For the most excessive sweaters, a swipe of this potent stick every three days is guaranteed to keep you dry. But be careful, overuse of this product is known to cause irritation.
