Kate the Peon asks:
I need a new deodorant. For years I have used either Secret or Dove, and now I feel like both of them fail me within minutes of putting them on. I don't like invisible ones and I have to have a solid. What do you recommend?
Currently, I use Dove. I think I have been using Dove for a year or so. Prior to that, I used Degree. I only use a regular solid and I only choose scents that aren't powdery or flowery. The reason I stopped using Degree is that I felt like it stopped working for me. What I think really happened was that I became so used to the scent that when I smelled it, I equated it with the smell of my armpits. Then, I think I became so used to the scent that I no longer smelled the deodorant, only my stinky pits.
That's my theory anyway. I haven't tested it because, during the time I have been using Dove, Degree stopped making the scent I used and I don't like any of the other ones.
My recommendation is to switch to Degree for awhile and then try switching back to whatever your favorite was.
