Brushing your teeth and washing your ass is expected… hell it’s common courtesy! To add on to that you can use some deodorant to prevent any unwanted odor when you perspire. You can also check out our best antiperspirant for men page if you’re looking for a stick that will help prevent sweat (Yes, deodorant and antiperspirant, although used interchangeably at times, serve two different purposes).
When the bacteria breaks down in your sweat, it causes body odor. Depending on numerous things (like your diet) the smell can be slightly (or insanely) pungent. To combat that, we recommend applying a deodorant during your regular personal hygiene routine. Below we will list 10 of the most best reviewed and highly touted deodorants for men on the market.
Some of these will be quite familiar. Others you may not have heard of (WTF Pit Paste!?). This list includes some of the best natural deodorant as well as the popular drugstore ones that are actually high quality.
