Keep your underarms sweat-free and smelling sweet with one of these products.


Bliss Minty Underarmy (HK$160/75ml)

It may smell more like mouthwash than something you roll onto your skin, but this is a great solution to the hot weather. The mint proves very refreshing - almost like rolling an ice cube under your arms. Tel: 3586 0246


Lush Coconut Deodorant Powder (HK$69/50g)

As an after-bath deodorant it's great, but the shaker container makes it difficult to apply. Not very good under pressure. Tel: 2522 6627


Origins No Offense Alcohol-free Deodorant (HK$100/75g)

Keeps you fresh and smell-free for hours. The crystal stick isn't as smooth as a roll-on, but it doesn't leave white residue or feel sticky. Good value for money. Tel: 3188 1826


Kiehl's Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant Cream (HK$120/50ml)

Once you get used to the slightly odd feeling of this non-sticky cream, this is easy to use. More or less scent-free, it keeps you dry during everyday activities, but not ideal for hardcore exercise bunnies. Tel: 2196 8348


Clinique Anti-perspirant-Deodorant Roll-on (HK$105/75ml)

Fragrance-free and clear, meaning it doesn't leave marks on clothes. Effectively maintains the body's natural scent during a work-out, unless you're an especially heavy sweater. Tel: 2918 1093
