I knew it! This is a trick question haha! So "hypothetically", I can survive a day or two before i'm going to need a deodorant. It's got something to do with my incomparably good hygiene. I'm using Safeguard! Skip and day then you can still go around town with hands/arms held up high. How about you? Let me ask you your question back.

So you think I was tricking a few people to "indirectly" admit of having underarm odor by simply admitting that they CAN'T survive without deodorant? Very clever thinking but no, I ain't telling you whatever my intentions are for asking. I'll leave that to you to die of curiosity. *laughing in a sinister way*

Hi, I am not using any, I don't think its advisable to use deodorant the more to those who have the underarm odor because the more they will stink... Not for once have I used ,so yes I can survive, Maybe i am just lucky not to have body odor and underarm odor too. I think first of all the main cause of this underarms odor is using clothes several times without laundry, not taking a bath daily is another cause.

I think some people are really just not blessed with naturally odorless underarms. I don't smell that bad either but I'm just careful because I don't want people to think that I'm not looking after my own personal hygiene.

yeah, I know, so let me ask, by having to use the deodorant for long time, do you still can maintain the whiteness of your underarm? because I know deodorant blackens the underarm. I hope not. hehe,easy to whitens it anyway if you only use the calamansi and rubbing it at the area, it also prevents smells. If you drop by china one day do not worry just have crystal alum with you, rub it at your underarm while bathing and apply powdered too I am sure you are aware of its uses. you have said you don't have that smell, so I think alum or calamansi is enough to give you the confidence,if you run short of deo while you are in china(.No need to pack lots)

Yeah, I use that crystal alum too. It's just as effective as commercial deos but that would be after ten thousand rubs. Kidding.

I don't have a problem on my underarm and i don't have body odor so i can say that i can survive without deodorant coz i don't need one.

Secret, always keep yourself clean, take a bath daily. Yes seriously, i don't have B.O even my underarm sweating it's not smelly and im not using deodorant maybe it's genetic lolz

wish leona and I had your genes. Maybe there really are people who just don't smell. My cousin doesn't need deos too. She just wouldn't smell no matter how hard she tries.Lol! Well, I take a bath everyday but it's like my routine to always rub on some. But I choose the sort without aluminum hydrochloride coz that's the main culprit for underarm staining.

I wouldn't dare try to live without deodorant? I stated a discussion on deodorant once and I was surprised at the number of people that responded that they didn't wear deodorant. That was a first for me. Some had a substitute for deodorant. And some just plain said they didn't and couldn't.

Yeah I think we should try to push deodorant to be the best topic of the year! I wasn't actually surprised to know that some people don't need it because my cousins and some friends didn't have to. They don't seem to know what underarm odor is like. Lol!

Good for you not to have to need it. But you can't always tell the needs of other people, right? For some, deos are a major part of their grooming and hygiene but some people do not. Ciao!

For as long as I am here in this country, I think it is always needed. It is hot here and it tends to create a lot of sweat. Obviously a deodorant is a must.

yes, the weather calls for a few dabs. But how about now? It's a few degrees lower than our usual atmospheric temperature.
