Effective Deodorant

Original Title: Help me not knock people over…PLEASE

Hi, can someone tell me where I can find some deodorant in Taiwan that’s of any use? I’ve tried a couple of things that look like they should be deodorant but are actually more like perfume that, I guess, you’re supposed to mix with b.o. to lessen the kill factor. Thanks!

Where are you? In Taipei it’s easy to find that stuff.

If you’re not in Taipei (and in the real Taiwan ( i. e. underdeveloped and unmodern) Try a Watson’s. They carry a passable “Rexona” deodarant.

BAN does the job.

Yep, Ban does a good job , a too good job … my armpits are gone :s :astonished: :laughing:

Costco and a few other places sell Gillette Gel sticks. But you gotta be a manly man to be able to buy them - they make you hand over your manly man ID to buy them.

They are not deodorants but after shave gel sticks … :unamused: :laughing: whuahahaha

Mate, NO manly man uses after shave gel sticks. We splash it on…sssssssssss.

Does anyone know if the Costco’s here sell Old Spice deoderant? I don’t need, in my last State-side run I stocked up on it :smiley:

when was that? back in the 70s? Do they still make it? ha ha.

Actually, when I was typing above about splashing it on, that was EXACTLY what I was thinking…Old Spice.

No, that’s ma fave; I order it through a personal shopping service, which I attempted to introduce to Forumosans, but she got promptly and unfairly bashed by the local cretins when she posted (per my suggestion) about 5 months back, so she withdrew. Your loss.

See this thread, which has the contact info for that one
[forumosa.com/taiwan/viewtopic.ph … ice#336044](Stick deodorant?

Pls give details on personal shopping services.
There may be others still in business. Interesting!
(IN humid weather one may wish to try
several brands e.g. some that are NOT “anti -
perspiration compounds” etc.)

The Sogo on Fuhsing Road in Taipei is selling Speed Stick for NT$128 for 85g. This works out about the same price as where I’m from. I was very (pleasantly) surprised. They also have spray - Axe - but at a laughable price of NT$400+ a can.

I think our Aussie/ NZ old spice might be a different thing.

Surely.

Ohhhhhh, aubrey, you reaaaally know how to make a man HOT. :bouncy: I’ve wondered who else on forumosa has the same taste as myself. For those who haven’t seen it, that’s a clip from what I feel is one of the hottest porn videos ever made. It can be downloaded here:

Anyway, my wife and I often watch that film before making hot and sweaty love and. . . oh never mind. :blush:

My wife gets me something called Seba Med deodorant – not that I need it, as my sweat has the sweet fragrance of an alpine meadow – which comes in a non-aerosol bottle.
Its not really non-aerosol either – I tried it there and it worked just fine as well.

Tea tree oil makes a great deodorant. I buy one from Australia when I remember. Aluminum is a worry. See below.

I have posted articles in the past warning of the dangers of antiperspirants, and now this study is raising concerns about deodorants as well. Antiperspirants and deodorants are not the same thing: Antiperspirants work by clogging, closing, or blocking the pores that release sweat–with the active ingredient being aluminum–so that they can

Maybe.

I’m not sure. Does not seem to be a big deal to avoid it if possible though.

I don’t remember any deoderants with aluminium causing Alzheimers…
