These Powder Deodorants Will Keep Your Pits *Fresh* All Day

They don’t leave a sticky feel, too!

We’ve said this before and we’re saying it again: Your underarm area should receive the same care and attention you give your face. After all, this particular patch of skin tends to be delicate and sensitive given its constant exposure to friction and the wear and tear of shaving, waxing, or other hair removal methods.

That said, choosing the right deodorant is a must. You want something that will not just keep you smelling like you’re always fresh out of the shower, but one that also feels gentle on the skin. Enter: Powder deodorants.

Why switch to a powder deodorant?

Hear us out: Powder deodorants are a thing. And much like the regular roll-on, stick, or spray formula, these products come with a whole set of pros.

  • They don’t leave a sticky feel.

Many roll-on or stick products advertise a powder finish because let’s be honest, no one likes that sticky wet feel of a regular deo. But do you know what actually offers a dry velvety finish? Literal powder.

  • Powder helps reduce friction that leads to darkening.

With powder deodorants, you pat the product gently onto your pits rather than rubbing it directly onto your skin. This reduces the friction your skin is exposed to and lessens the risk of darkening. 

  • You don’t have to wait for them to dry.

If you’re always rushing through your whole morning prep, you can skip the time you spend waiting for your underarm product to dry by replacing it with a powder deo. You just pat it down and go.

  • They tend to be more sulit than other deodorants.

ICYDK, you can get powder deodorants for a fraction of the cost of a stick or spray product. Just check out our recos below.

The Best Powder Deodorants To Keep Your Pits Fresh

  1. Milcu Underarm & Foot Deodorant Powder

    This one’s strongly recommended by the ladies of our Cosmo Community group and it’s not hard to see why. The Milcu classic powder deodorant is mild, non-sticky, and helps control excessive perspiration without clogging the pores. It even doubles as a foot powder.

  3. Rexona 3-in-1 Deo Powder

    No list of underarm products would be complete without Rexona. This Unilever brand is widely known for its array of roll-on, spray, and lotion deodorants, but it also offers deo powders that are in a league of their own. You can use them in three ways: for your pits, feet, and back. And unlike other deodorants, these protect from odor and sweat without leaving a stain on your clothes. We particularly like the Aloe Soothe variant that contains aloe extracts to give the skin a soothing feel.

  4. Dermaid Tawas Unscented Powder

    It’s almost impossible to go through puberty in this country without hearing about the underarm benefits of tawas from our mothers or lolas. Heck, even Iza Calzado swears by this natural ingredient to keep her pits smooth and bright. In case you’ve never tried it before, check out this powder from Dermaid that combines tawas and talc to keep your underarms fresh and dry throughout the day.

  6. Lush The Greeench Deodorant Powder 

    This powder deodorant from cosmetics brand Lush might be a bit more pricey compared to the other products on this list, but that’s because it packs a ton of green ingredients that will keep your pits smelling nice and clean all day. It has rosemary, tea tree, and thyme that aid in fighting bacteria and neutralizing unwanted smells. Considering that it’s a natural deodorant though, you’ll need to give your body around 30 days to adjust before you notice its effects, especially if you’ve been using antiperspirants for a long time.
