What's the Difference Between Solid and Roll-on Deodorant?

Roll-on antiperspirant deodorant vs solid – what’s the difference and which is best?

A good antiperspirant deodorant will leave you feeling dry whatever the situation. When it comes to using roll-on antiperspirant deodorant or solid, it really is a matter of personal preference.

Roll-on Antiperspirant Deodorants

Roll-on antiperspirant deodorants feature a clear liquid which can be rolled on to your skin. They’re easy to use and control.

One downside is that they can take a few minutes to dry, and feel wet compared to some solid or spray antiperspirant deodorants.  Many people like this feeling but others prefer a drier sensation. 

Solid Antiperspirant Deodorants

Often referred to as “stick deodorants”, solid antiperspirant deodorants are made from a dense substance that forms a protective layer over your skin.

Many who use solid antiperspirant deodorants prefer the dry application of a stick antiperspirant deodorant compared to the wetness of their roll-on counterparts.

The dry, often powdery consistency of solid antiperspirant deodorants means it can be easier for white marks to get on clothes during application. These stains can be hard to wash out, especially for delicate fabrics.
