Great product with one hitch
This Ban deodorant and antiperspirant is extremely effective for me. The smell is somewhat pleasant. It is not overwhelming at all, and it lingers slightly for a while after application. Vanilla just isn't quite what I like. It lasts for a long time (as in, 24 hours of regular daily activity). It does a decent job of protection while during exercise, but not overly so. I have very sensitive skin, and I would always get an extremely itchy rash when I first started wearing deodorant. This is the the only deodorant that I have been able to find that does not have that side effect. In fact, I haven't had any negative side effects at all. The problem with using stick deodorant that I ran into is that I would get it on my clothes that I put on over my head. It would stand out a lot, especially if wearing a black shirt. It can't be quickly washed off, but has either be scrubbed by hand or washed in the washing machine. This is frustrating if you're in a hurry to get out the door and then have to change clothes because of it.
