This $5 CVS Deodorant Pen Keeps Me From Being a Sweaty Mess

Allow me to set the scene. It's 2005. I'm in junior high. Puberty just hit me like a derailing train. Girls are covering their budding B.O. by delicately spritzing on Victoria's Secret Very Sexy. Meanwhile, on the other side of weirdo-town, I'm sticking maxi pads to the armpits of my t-shirts in hopes of stopping four-inch-wide sweat stains from developing under my pits.

Ten years later, I've thankfully developed a better system, but I'm still pretty choosy when it comes to my deodorant. Although one of my favorite parts of my job is testing new beauty products, I rarely volunteer to be the guinea pig when it comes to new antiperspirants. When I saw the puny Super Recipes Women's Deodorant Antiperspirant Pen ($5), I assumed it wouldn't work on me. Still, I was charmed by the idea of a portable deodorant disguised as a writing utensil, so I slipped it into my purse.

Lo and behold, a few days later I ran out of my go-to deo. I nervously spritzed the Super Recipes pen over my pits, and packed an extra shirt just in case I sweat through it. Luckily, I never had to change. The formula provided an instant, cooling effect that felt super refreshing. Although I was nervous that the spray might not set quickly and leave white streaks on my clothing, it never did.
