How to find the best deodorant for you (and survive a summer heatwave)

It’s typical to have a bit of a love/hate relationship with your antiperspirant. Of course, we eagerly reach for the stick day after day (particularly in this steamy, sticky summer heat), but we also have our fair share of beef with it. Like, was it necessary to go all white and bally, behind our backs? Or to be completely MIA by happy hour? Or run off and leave a mark on our gorge silk numbers? As much as we’d like to think all is fine and dandy, we just aren’t happy with this disloyal companion. This relationship isn’t working.

And so, we’re officially on the market to find our new match. One that we can rely on, trust and, like, have fun with.

Ahead, we’ve gathered the best antiperspirants and deodorants in a variety of formulas that offer an array of benefits, so you can find the one that was made for you. From a budget-friendly pick that provides 24-hour protection, to a natural, roll-on option that actually works, we have five winners lined up that won’t let you down.
