Dove Cream deodorant has never missed a beat preventing wetness and odour for me, and I've just discovered Biosthetique AntiFrizz Serum - awesome :-)

I like the Garnier deodorant. I need to get myself some blotting paper and I'm intrigued by the sound of the KMS anti-humidity seal as my hair get's mighty frizzy in the heat.

Eeeee??? I don't like the smell of cucumbers ... and I'm assuming the body butter would smell like that?? The KMS humidity seal sounds like me though ... gosh ... gotta hit the mall and check all these goodies out in person!

I used to like the Garnier deodorant when it was being sold in the older round roll on container, then they changed and also changed their formula and now it irritates my skin. :( not happy

I might try KMS Hairstay - hate how my hair soaks in all the surrounding moisture & frizzes up to 'fro proportions :( Oooh, and the Mattifying Stick sounds good ~ ♥♥♥ Shiseido!

Love "mists" - like the Trilogy hydrating mist toner. I have a SMALL bottle that used to have Jurlique rose mist in it and I keep that in my handbag through summer so that I can mist my face whenever the heat gets to me. Winter is my favourite season!

Im loving the The garnier roll deodorant at the moment, it really does the job throughout the day. I also like the sound of the Shiseido mattifying stick...must check it out.

I love mists. Always have one in my bag in hot weather. And one in the fridge at home for an extra cooling spray. May have to invest in another for the fridge at work.
I'm thinking the Australis Finishing Spritz would be a good investment, the reviews look good. But how is it different from a toning mist, as that's what I currently use to set my makeup.

Mainly moroccan oil on my hair to stop the frizz factor.

Love hydrating mists & moroccan oil on my hair as it frizzes up like you'd barely believe...

My body always feels over-heated and sweaty. I agree that cucumbers are really cooling and soothing.

I love using spritzers during the warmer weather, keeps my face feeling refreshed and oil build up minimal. It has a beautiful cooling effect on my skin.
Garnier invisimineral deoderant is another product I use. I love how it goes on clear and dries clear. No powdery residues. Garnier undereye caffine roll-on is another great product for those summer days with horrible humidity.
