The Ultimate Guide to Deodorants
When it comes to deodorant, there are plenty of products to help you tackle body odour. From antiperspirant roll-on deodorants to deodorant sticks and deodorant sprays, Sephora has something to suit all preferences. Whether you’re looking for a quick-drying or long-lasting deodorant, we’re bound to have something to fit the bill.
Roll-on vs. Spray vs Sticks: What's The Difference?
The age-old battle between roll-on deodorant and spray deodorant rages on. Neither product is considered ‘better’ by hygiene experts - it’s more a matter of preference. So what are the benefits of each? Deodorant spray wins for drying time, while roll-ons usually last longer without flaking. When it comes to reducing body odour, roll-ons are better equipped at treating the glands with an activated formula. On the other hand, many customers find deodorant spray more refreshing compared to roll-ons. We’ll run through our top picks organised by their best qualities...
Deodorant Sprays: Quick-drying: Those who are always in a rush might appreciate the quick-drying nature of deodorant spray. The fine particles combine with the air to dry almost instantly as they reach your skin. The thicker formula of roll-on deodorant can take a few minutes to dry which can occasionally leave white smudges on dark-coloured clothing. Another benefit of deodorant spray is that it can be used all over the body - not just on the armpits. If all-over personal freshness is important to you, it's a great idea to have a spray deodorant on hand wherever you go. A quick spritz will banish bad odours and leave you feeling fresh. Spray deodorants can be borrowed and shared since they don't come into contact with the skin. Though that can be a downside when your mate ends up 'borrowing' all of yours...
Roll-on Antiperspirant Deodorants: Long-lasting : Despite the extra drying time, many users appreciate the longer-lasting nature of roll-on deodorant. The formulas are extra-moisturising meaning they don’t flake with wear. When it comes to sweat prevention, roll-ons also take the crown. They deliver more active ingredients to the armpit area and permeate deeper into the glands. Unlike spray-ons which simply deodorise, antiperspirant roll-ons are effective protectants against sweat. On hot days this is essential for peace of mind!
Deodorant Sticks: Adding Luxury and Freshness Straight: Known to add a little luxury to your morning routine, deodorant sticks impart freshness straight to where it's most needed. Many include the fragrance of an eau de toilette and can be worn with or without your usual aftershave. Look no further than the Noir Deodorant by Tom Ford Beauty which does exactly that. Sweep it across your skin for full deodorising protection as well as the luxurious scent of Tom Ford Noir fragrance. The sensual Oriental notes capture the urban, sophisticated man perfectly.
Best Deodorants to Stay Fresh
The festive season is always a good time. Between dancing, dining and enjoying a few drinks, you’ll be kept pretty busy. The one thing we often forget to think about? How to stay fresh while socialising with friends, family and colleagues. Even in cold countries, the struggle can be real. You layer up whilst outside then start to sweat when you reach the central heating of the office, shopping mall or your home. Not to mention how crowded and sweaty it can get on public transport with everyone! That’s just the cold countries - everyday humidity struggles continue around Asia, often leaving you in need of a good deodorant. Whether you prefer a deodorant stick, a deodorant spray or an antiperspirant roll-on deodorant, there are plenty of options in Sephora. Browse quick-drying and long-lasting solutions depending on your needs, as well as deodorant wipes and designer labels. Not sure which product to purchase?
