Since aerosol deodorants were first developed and introduced to the market in the 1960s, people have enjoyed using them for their convenience and odor-fighting power. And that’s true even to this day. Even though people have a lot of options when it comes to deodorants—from roll-ones to sticks, from pastes to gels, consumers still often choose aerosol-based products more often than they do these other types.
Just because a type of deodorant is popular, however, doesn’t mean that it’s the best one available. That’s why we decided to get to the bottom of the matter and separate the truly great sprays and the ones that miss the mark. What we’ve uncovered are the top ten best spray deodorants available, and we’ve listed those products below for our reader’s convenience.
Best Spray Deodorants
10. Arrid Regular Extra-Dry Aerosol Antiperspirant
Just because a spray deodorant isn’t fancy or expensive doesn’t mean that it can’t get the job done. Take this product, for instance. It’s simple to use and doesn’t have an exceptional scent to it, but what it can do is immediately end underarm odor and wetness. Once this maximum-strength formula is applied to a person’s armpits, it stops odor and wetness for 24 hours at a time without needing to be reapplied. It can be used by either men or women and is effective for even the most active athletes. And since it has a light citrus scent to it, just about anyone can appreciate it.
