1. I'm having a crisis. My deodorant is failing me. Anyone got any suggestions? I was using Sure Clear Dry for the last 3 1/2 years and it just up and stopped working for me.

    Your stinky friend.....

    Try Degree. Or the only Avon product I EVER use. They have a 24 hour deodorant/antipers. that really does work well.

    Oh and I forgot to mention.....a shower once a day helps alot!!!

    Degree is the ONLY thing that does it for me, what with my extra weight and now the additional insult of hot, power surges......and night sweats.

    I use unscented speed stick by Mennin. It even covers up stink thats already there.

    Do women realy need deodorant made for women?

    Only if it's strong enough for a man

    ....but made for a woman!

    Shower daily...sometimes twice daily.

    I used to use Lady's Speed Stick and that failed on me after awhile too....

    I used Degree. Same thing.

    Why, oh why, do they fail after a time? Does anyone else have this problem?

    Getting stinkier by the minute.....

    Well, you could put a bay leaf under each'd still perspire, but you'll smell like soup!

    Just kidding........I'm wondering if you're taking any new medications, or maybe your blood chemistry has changed somehow. I know that's what happened to me when Ban quit on me a few years ago, and I'd been using that stuff since my teens.

    You might want to consider one of the newer herbal antiperspirants---can't think of the name brands, but you can find these in most health food stores, GNC, etc. I think Tom's of Maine has a product like this. Good luck!

    I like your smell.
    It brings out the animal in me.
    Maybe deodorants are like perfumes, in that you become immune to them after awhile?
    Oops! Forgot to add, I'm not a real faithful deodorant user. Well, I mean I never use one brand faithfully. Maybe that's the key, mixing it up. I just buy whatever is on sale.
