Not sure if I posted back after the fact (I was the one to start the thread) but the MenScience stick is in fact the one I ended up with using for three-four sticks, but it’s expensive and doesn’t last long (stick itself, not on me), I found, and currently I’m alternating between a couple designer brand sticks, scented. I’ve never stuck with the salt crystal kind for long enough to get my body to adjust, which I’m told one needs to. Or did you by ‘down there’ mean your man sack and crack??I use a crystal deodorant stick after my showers just to keep things clean down there. But my go to stick is from MenScience, it's pretty expensive but it works and the stick lasts forever. I still have 1/4 of my first stick left and 2 backup sticks. The deodorant is odor less and it doesn't leave stains on shirt pits so if you have expensive dress shirts this is a stick to use.
I also have really sensitive under arms and this has been one of the few products that work for me.
You moisten the skin and rub the stick on which leaves an invisible antibacterial residue. Sweat itself doesn’t smell, it’s a bacterial reaction to it. The residual antibacterial on your skin kills bacteria, hence no reaction, hence no smell.This may be a stupid question but as I've only ever used anti perspirant spray for years I'm not sure.
How do these crystals work and what's their purpose?
As I understand it anti perspirant stops you sweating in the first place and deodorant is just a spray with fragrance to cover up any unwanted smells.
Apologies for the daft question
Thanks for that Chris. I mainly use anti perspirant to stop wet patches to be honest. I try to use the invisible types and find them better for not staining shirts as much.You moisten the skin and rub the stick on which leaves an invisible antibacterial residue.

Antiperspirant works by clogging your pores. There are rumoured health risks to this but nothing conclusive, however I don’t like the idea of clogging up my skin and definitely didn’t like the effect it had on the armpits of my shirts.
