I have used Speed Stick deodorant ever since I started needing to use deodorant in about Junior High. I have tried other brands along the way (such as Degree and Old Spice), whether because I received a free trial or I heard that one was supposed to be better. But I always come back to Speed Stick, because I have found that it is the most effective for me. I just use regular Speed Stick deodorant that is not even advertised as an antiperspirant. But I have found that it does work quite well as an antiperspirant. I do sweat a lot typically, but this deodorant does a good job of cutting down on that (unless I'm working pretty hard outside on a hot day). It has been a very rare occasion when this deodorant has let me down at a time that I really needed it to help cover sweat. It also is great as a regular deodorant. It has a pleasant smell that is not overpowering. But it will last for several hours without being overcome by the body odors of the day. I usually put it on in the morning after a shower and don't need it again the rest of the day. I usually add a little before going out somewhere in he evening, but this is more a precaution than a necessity.
