Horses sweat, men perspire and girls glow. Dream on! Sweating is not only unavoidable, it is healthy (think toxin release). But healthy does not always smell great, which is where deodorants come in. Find one you like, and it could be your best friend this summer.

Rexona - cotton dry ($23.90)

Claims to be the world's number one deodorant, and for good reason. It has everything you want of a deo-buster: easy application, non-sticky and pleasant smell.

Mum ($28.90)

Mum has been around longer than your Mum. Unscented, although sometimes has an odd odour at the end of the day. Good size for travelling.

Hi & Dri ($22.90)

If you like that Johnson & Johnson baby powder smell, you'll love this. This latest formula is better than their last. Rolls on easily and dries fast.

Fa ($24.90)

This is so sticky and takes so long to dry it will have you doing the chicken dance (admit it: you flap your elbows to speed up the drying). Fragrance too strong - overpowers any perfume you might want to wear.

Dove ($28.90)

The moisturising formula is good for dry skin, but it takes a minute or so to dry.
