Why can’t we all just smell like flowers?

Confession time.

I normally don’t wear deodorant.  To the point where I don’t know how to spell it.  I just had to look it up.  How embarrassing.

I had a small tiny sample deodorant that some rep from Dove was passing out downtown Minneapolis one day.  I carried it around in my bike bag, just incase it was extra hot.  I am pretty sure I used it once, maybe twice.  Maybe one of those times was when I was biking around with my friend and he put some of his one and so I felt obligated to do the same.  I’m Asian.  I don’t sweat too much under zee pits.

I’ve become a bit self-conscious here, because I sweat all the time.  On average it’s 85 degrees or more, and it’s always humid.  So I cruised to Watsons, which is this little store that sells mostly body-related products.  Things like soap and shaving cream.  Not a huge selection.
Then, I found this.  What the….?  Whitening deodorant?  This is crazy time.

What the….?

I settled on some Dove stuff, but it only came in a spray can.  The first ingredient is Butane.  Followed by Isobutane, then Propane.  I’m confused.  Is this normal?  Also, it says to be careful not to spray it by your face, but correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t everyone’s face not terribly far away from their pits?  Especially if you’re looking where you’re applying?

This might be too much information to share, but I’m thoroughly confused.  Plus I have no shame.  Please, help a sista out.  Fill me in on the ways antiperspirants.

Extremely Flammable. Great.

    Nicnac, I can’t help you out with this one but I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for an answer…
    Also, question… are your pits smelly or just wet? Perhaps answering this will cause you to over-share but, well, we have no shame.
