The 5 Best Deodorants for Men

We’ll just come out and say it: men tend to, er, “emit” more than women. Generally – we sweat more. And smell more. And hence, we need more powerful and long-lasting deodorants.

The best deodorant for body odor and sweating is one that not only protects against odor and wetness but also nourishes skin and leaves you smelling fresh in a natural, non-chemically sort of way. A great men’s deodorant will also have that “X” factor: something unique that sets it apart from the crowd.

Here are our top picks for the best armpit coverage ever:

#1 Recipe For Men Antiperspirant Deodorant:

Never judge a book by its cover -- or a deodorant by its size. It may be small, but that’s only because it takes very little of this powerful, yet irritation-free stick to gain maximum sweat and odor protection. Recipe for Men packs a serious punch without any of the sting. It’s an ultra-mild, alcohol-free roll-on that’s perfect for sensitive pits. It absorbs quickly, providing complete wetness protection without blocking the body's natural perspiration.

#2 Jack Black Pit Boss Antiperspirant & Deodorant:

Jack Black Pit Boss Antiperspirant & Deodorant keeps sweat completely under control while maintaining a comfortably fresh feel and smell. Jack Black’s products are always paraben-free, vegan, and dermatologist-tested -- meaning they use quality ingredients to prevent irritation and leave no carbon footprint. All of this at a price that won’t make you sweat. The name says it all - this deodorant runs the show.

#3: Molton Brown Re-Charge Black Pepper Antiperspirant Stick

Molton Brown's famous Black Peppercorn body wash is sooo good, they had to make it in deodorant form. "London via Madagascar” is the way the gents at Molton Brown describe it. You can actually put this on before a night on the town, crash at 3 am and wake up the next morning still smelling like manly, freshly cracked peppercorn. The dark, woodsy and distinctly masculine scent combines unique oils from sources like the Andiroba tree, lemon and aromatic coriander to provide 24-hour protection from wetness and odor-causing bacteria.

#4 Billy Jealousy Funk Budy No.1:

If you’re looking for a no-strings-attached relationship that’ll last forever, this is the stick for you. This alcohol-, paraben- and aluminum-free funk-fighting deodorant smells crisp and clean, while keeping odors and bacteria at bay with a slew of natural ingredients, including Sage Leaf, Cucumber, Bergamot, and Witch Hazel. The scent combines notes of Lavender, Orange, Coffee, Vanilla and Sandalwood. No drama. No messes to clean up or apologies to make. Everyone needs a buddy that sticks with them no matter what.

#5 Grooming Lounge Greatest Pits:

Picture yourself walking through a serene Eucalyptus forest, then stop, close your eyes and breath in. You’ve just entered the world of our Greatest Pits Deodorant. Eucalyptus is an organic antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent that also smells pretty amazing. This one is a cocktail of odor-neutralizing yet gentle ingredients that will leave you sweat, odor and irritation free. Oh -- you’ll also be stain-free, aluminum-free, alcohol-free and paraben-free. Be free!

#6 Grooming Lounge Super Powder:

We would be very remiss to put together a list of the best deodorants for men without also including our own rash and itch-fighting Super Powder.

There are certain, let’s say, “trouble” areas for men in terms of redness and chafing -- and this one takes care of them with an extremely gentle touch.

We considerate it a “Super Powder” because you can pretty much use it anywhere (except the face) without having to worry about irritation. It’s also light and ultra effective at absorbing sweat and fighting irritation. Just a sprinkle will do ya good!
