Picking Our Favorite Pit Protectors

We went overboard on our underarms. One deodorant rose above all the rest.

Most men put little effort into finding the best deodorants for their body, these tube-based body fresheners say everything about our personal hygiene and body care routine. Smelling good certainly plays a vital role in our everyday affairs and so does killing bacteria and reducing odor and sweat. Hence why we recommend venturing out to test new pit protectors ASAP. Without any further adieu, here are our 5 favorites:


Native Deodorant was hands down the best deodorant we tried. We loved that it was composed of natural ingredients such as coconut oil, arrowroot powder and probiotics. In addition, not only did Native provide us with full protection against odor and wetness, it didn’t stain our t-shirts with that nasty yellow armpit look (you know what we’re talking about).

Native offers free shipping on every single order, and if you don’t love your deodorant, they’ll cover the cost of return shipping and give you a full refund. Since they have about 10,000 amazing reviews from customers though, we’re pretty confident you’ll like it. Native comes in some great scents, including Eucalyptus & Mint and Citrus & Herbal Musk. Our favorite was Citrus & Herbal Musk – just the right amount of masculine without being overpowering.

EDIT: The folks at Native Deodorant are offering readers a free travel size deodorant with any purchase over $15. Use code HCO to redeem.

2. Tom Ford Deodorant

Like Native (and the other deodorants on this list), Tom Ford is made without the use of aluminum or parabens, which was important to us the deodorant has a light citrus fragrance that’s perfect and goes on smooth like glass. The only thing we wince at is the price, but if you can afford it, it’s great!

3. Real Purity Men’s Deodorant

Real Purity Men’s Deodorant is a stick deodorant that masks odor using a careful combination of lavender, peppermint, bergamot and other essential oils. It has a wonderful scent, that has a hint of cinnamon and bergamot. We wish the deodorant was a bit larger (it comes in at 1.5oz), but we love the scent and effectiveness.

4. Baxter of California

Baxter is a perennial favorite for men. It has a scent that works well for it and can be applied easily and quickly. In addition, it comes in a clear stick, which is an added bonus. We felt like its odor protection wasn’t quite there yet but really loved the scent.

5. Zak’s Natural Deodorant For Men

Zak’s Detox Deodorant lasts and feels great when you apply it. It’s packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids like bentonite clay and aloe vera. It has no aluminum, parabens, GMOs, or other ingredients that will make your furrow your brow.
