Living on a sunny tropical island has its perks — lush sceneries, awesome beaches — but it also comes with a few cons. One is dealing with (sometimes scorching) hot weather and the inevitable sweating that makes us feel icky and uncomfortable. Not to mention that sweaty streak marks on clothes and body odour can be embarrassing. Good for us, there are some great options in the market that may help us with these woes. Check out the 10 best antiperspirant deodorants that you can buy in Singapore.

We use sugar to sweeten up drinks and food, but you’d be pleasantly surprised to know that it also has a hydrating effect on the skin. That’s right. You can experience it through the FRESH Sugar Roll-On Deodorant Antiperspirant, which contains real sugar to ensure moisture and at the same time control odour-causing bacteria. The formula also has aloe leaf extract for soothing the skin and witch hazel extract for minimising pore size on armpits. Fresh, indeed.
Kiehl’s is already famed for its luxurious skincare products that perform well, so it would be no surprise that Kiehl’s Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant (SGD29) is also getting rave reviews. This deodorant’s key ingredient is the micro-sized drying molecules that absorb into the skin without residue and provide up to 24-hour odour and sweat control. What’s more is that this fan-favourite product is infused with orange, lemon and linseed extracts that soften underarm hair.
