Deodorant

Deodorants come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes it can be hard to know which size is best for you. The size of deodorant you can take on a plane is determined by the TSA.

The bag may be placed in a carry-on bag or in your checked bag.

Solid

Solid deodorants are the most common type of deodorant and can come in many forms, such as creams, sticks, and gels. They are easy to apply and usually last long. However, some people find them too greasy or heavy.

Spray

Other items

Gel

Gel is a type of solid Deodorant that has a moisture-activated formula. It usually comes in a pump dispenser and can be applied directly to the skin. Although it is not as popular as other types of Deodorant, gel has some advantages. For one, it is less likely to stain clothing than other types of deodorant. It is also less likely to leave white marks on dark clothing. Gel Deodorant can be an alternative for people who are sensitive to the aluminum in antiperspirants.

Cream

Creams, also sometimes called roll-ons, are a type of deodorant that come in a small bottle or tube. You apply them by rolling the stick on your skin.
