Unfortunately, the very antiperspirant deodorants designed to help you remain stink free, also cause unsightly stains under the arms of your shirts and blouses. For years, I tried different options–from just deodorant with no antiperspirant to nothing at all.
Sadly, none of the options I tried worked for me.
Then I discovered Lady Speed Stick with Stainguard.
I thought I was finally going to find a 100% solution.
It IS a solution. However, not 100%.
Let me explain…
From my almost a year of using I have discovered two things.
1. It DOES limit staining. It does not prevent it, but it does limit it a great deal. Unless, you are wearing it during a vigorous work out, then you will find yourself with stained underarms within a couple weeks of daily use.
Now, if you are wearing your shirts for normal use (not exercise or heavy sweating situations), it has a far better result. I find my blouses and t-shirts have a longer life with Lady Speed Stick with Stainguard. Maybe not perfect, however, the best result I have found for preventing stains AND desiring to smell decent.
Quick Tip: After wearing your top, always spray the arm pits where the deodorant touched with a stain stick or spray. This also adds to the life and prevention of underarm stains of the shirt.
2. Smell factor. There is a very significant difference with the stain guard v/s normal antiperspirant/deodorants.
On the Lady Speed stick with Stainguard package it says it will last 24 hours. Not true. I need to reapply every 4-6 hours if I sweat to any degree. A bit of a pain–but as I said, a better fit for me than accelerated visible stains in the underarm areas of my shirts.
I DO like their “Daringly Fresh” scent. However, I am a little annoyed by the 24 hour claim and them being SO FAR OFF.
Overall, I like the product and use it. However, if something better and longer lasting comes along—well…
