How to choose deodorant: The beginner’s guide

Not sure what the difference is between an antiperspirant, deodorant, dry spray or stick? Read our quick guide below to learn how each one works, and what is best for your skin care routine.

Choose a deodorant for odour protection

Formulated with ¼ moisturizing cream, our deodorants give you up to 72-hour odour protection while retaining your skin’s moisture and protecting it against dryness. 

For a deodorant that works against strong underarm odour, Dove Men+Care Extra Fresh Deodorant Stick gives you all the odour protection you need with a long-lasting and invigorating bergamot, lavender and sandalwood scent.


Choose an antiperspirant for sweat + odour protection

Want to take that protection to the next level? Infused with vitamin E and made with ¼ moisturizing cream, our reformulated antiperspirants now give you 72-hour sweat and odour protection. 

For heavy sweating and underarm wetness, Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Antiperspirant Stick is your best tool.  It gives your underarms sweat and odour protection. And it’s so powerful, it can be applied overnight and lasts until the next day.


Choose a dry spray for instant freshness

Powered by Triple Defense Technology™, our long-lasting antiperspirant dry sprays dry as soon as you apply them, so you can freshen up, get dressed and get on with your day. 

If you’re unsure how to use antiperspirant dry sprays, it’s easy. Just shake the can to activate the ingredients, hold it 15 cm away from dry underarms (making sure it’s upright), and spray 2-3 short bursts over each armpit. For 72-hour sweat and odour protection with crisp notes of orange flower, lavender and oakmoss, Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Dry Spray Antiperspirant is a big fan favourite.


Choose a stick to care for underarms if you are on-the-go

Whether you want something light to travel or something small to throw into your sports bag, our compact antiperspirant and deodorant sticks can be easily swiped on to keep you feeling fresh and confident wherever you go.

If exercise is part of your self-care routine, Dove Men+Care SportCare Fresh Antiperspirant Stick gives you 72-hour sweat and odor protection during every workout. And if you want to try a new and unique scent for your next vacation, Dove Men+Care Midnight Classico Deodorant Stick is an effective deodorant with 72-hour odour protection and a citrusy starfruit, patchouli and cedarwood scent.

Now you know the difference between an antiperspirant, deodorant, dry spray or stick, find the perfect one for your unique skin and lifestyle.
