5 Small On-The-Go Deodorants For The Gym Rat Who Doesn’t Want To Smell Like One
You need a deodorant in your bag.
Point. Blank. Period. That goes for those of us who rush out of the house for work, only to realize at our desks that we’re not so fresh. And it’s especially necessary if you’re someone who goes from the gym to work. But if you’re toting a small bag or just don’t want a whole stick of deodorant sitting in your duffle, you’ll be glad to know there are a number of small but mighty on-the-go deodorants on the market. Some are as small as your favorite lip gloss, others are just slim and easy to make room for. They’re also pretty affordable, making them worth a try. Check out five we’re currently a fan of.
Secret Freshies On‑the‑Go Invisible Solid $4.99
If you’re already a Secret fan, you’ll love the Secret Freshies On-the-Go Invisible Solid deodorant. The product, which comes in lavender, rose, waterlily and ocean scents, provides protection from wetness and odors. Considering it looks like a roll-on chapstick, its discreet. Roll it on at any time of day to keep even those with the busiest gym-and-go lifestyle as fresh as possible.
Dove Dry Sprays $5
An absolute favorite, the Dove Dry Sprays are great because not only do they go on light, but they also provide moisture to keep underarms soft and soothed without being wet. Available in fresh scents, and options that go on clear, the dry sprays can stay on and stay strong for up to 48 hours.
Oyin Handmade 32 Oz. Funk Butter $7.99
You know Oyin for their honey-based hair products, but they also have some great options for the body. That includes their Funk Butter. The product, which is an all-natural cream-to-powder deodorant made of vegetable powders, baking soda and Kaolin clay, absorbs moisture to curb your funkiness. It can be used on your armpits and between your toes. And while the application is something to get used to, being in a jar and all, the coverage will make it worth it.
Primal Pit Paste $10.95
In a slim 2 oz. biodegradable container, the lavender Primal Pit Paste Deodorant has natural ingredients that are great for post-workout or oops-I-forgot-to-apply-deodorant moments. It’s made from shea butter, non-aluminum baking soda, coconut oil, beeswax, arrowroot powder, Vitamin E and lavender essential oil. And it keeps you dry and feeling fabulous. If you’re not a fan of the tube, you can always check out their small deodorant jar options.
L’Occitane Refreshing Aromatic Deodorant $19
The brand’s natural deodorant (bye bye aluminum!) is a roll-on option infused with essential oils to provide a soft and long-lasting aroma. It is rich in ingredients like lemon, cardamom and eucalyptus oils, and despite all of the oils, goes on and stays on dry.
