Deodorant isn't always a glamorous part of our beauty routine, but as we approach summer, feeling and smelling fresh becomes more important than ever. Whether you choose to go the route of an all-natural deodorant or a powerful antiperspirant, there's no denying the need for this under-appreciated product on your vanity.
Since there's been a long held debate about deodorants versus antiperspirants you'll want to choose one that works best for you and your unique body.
To clarify, deodorants mask body odour whereas antiperspirants generally contain aluminum compounds to stop or reduce sweating. Therefore, deodorants are best for those who are most concerned with odour, whereas antiperspirants are best for those worried about excess sweating.
We've rounded up ten of the top deodorant picks of the season, including some innovative new launches and drugstore favourites. While all of these options target odour, you can shop the best at every price point — starting at just $6.
