Crystal all the way, baby. I bought one about 8 years ago in Canada, maybe $12 (8 in the US)

Last week I ordered another one online.

Get out of shower, don't dry the pits all the way. Walk to sink, pull out crustal, rub on pits until it gets a bit painful, done.

DEODORANT, not antiperspirant.

I just hate the feeling and my armpits feel slippery for like half an hour after i put it on

No joke at all. IF you get your pits wet (not the crystal) it lasts forever

The crystal is the best stuff hands down.
No sticky gel or powdery residues eeking through to your dark shirts.
How it works is that the bacteria don’t thrive in the salts the crystal imparts to your armpits.

I have not used any of those products but I have been using gel cologne .At first it's sticky but after a while all the stickiness goes off .
Gel products seem very useful and user friendly if you ask me . I have been using gel instead of foam when shaving and result is smoother

BimBimM2 this explains it more, just in case you thought I was talking about crystals like cleaning your aura. Crystal salts make a layer the bacteria dislike, they don't convert your body to smells, and everyone wins!!! Well, except the stinky bacteria.

+1, no antiperspirant for me neither, just the regular old spice ambassador or pure sport scent deodorant.

Antiperspirant is also not good for you due to the chemicals or something I've read before. Not sure on how true that is though.

Drunk Elephant. Sweet Pitti.
You don't smell for a good 12 hours no matter what you do. Zero odour. Work out. DIY.
It's pricey for the pits but worth it.

It's true. It contains high concentrations of aluminium, parabens, SLA... the zero alcohol zero aluminium ones are good but don't tend to last long. Dove 0% nets me around 6 hours sat at a desk but if I move around (DIY) within an hour I'm sweating. I still use it though as it's good for the body and smells okay.
