Bad breath, musky pits and crotchy smells are just plain offensive. Face it: while your significant other may have learned to put up with your B-O woes, no one else will. Not to mention it can screw up that big interview you’ve been planning for or that dream date you finally locked down. Put your best foot forward with these funk-busting buys for your underarms, nether regions and everywhere  in between. It’s only right.

 

BEST DEODERANT:

BILLY JEALOUSY FUNK BUDDY NO.2 DEODERANT

$18; billyjealousy.com

Fight odors with this cooling buy that will leave your ‘pits smelling like woodsy amber, cedar wood and vanilla. The transparent formula goes on smoothly and won’t stain clothes;  bonus ingredient witch hazel extract wicks away excess sweat on those extra stressful days.

I’m usually hesitant with gel-like deoderants, but this one is alcohol-free which prevents irritation. The mild scent is great for guys who don’t like a strong fragrance in this area.

$5.47; amazon.com

Streamline your skincare routine with this multitasking buy that works wonders as a face, body or post-shave moisturizer. The lightweight formula is fragrance free, so no need to worry about it competing with your favorite cologne.

I love that this product is a 3-in-1 and doesn’t have an overpowering scent. The jumbo sizes makes me feel like I’m getting more bang for my buck.

$20; chassisformen.com

Just when it seemed like the grooming gods thought of everything, a new brand dedicated to keeping you perennially fresh–down there–has hit the market. There’s no greater mood killer than crotchy smells; this talc-free formula keeps them at bay with anti-inflammatory ingredients like pumpkin seed, witch hazel, oatmeal and hops–a key component in the production of beer.

It absorbs into the skin quickly and lasts the entire day.

$20; johnmasters.com

Sloughing dead skin from your body may sound gross, but it’s very necessary. Without it, you’re prey to annoying breakouts and dull, flaky skin. Keep this baby in your shower caddy; enriched with citrus oils , ylang yang and mint, use once a week for optimal results.

It has a great scent and left my skin feeling smooth and moisturized.

BEST MENS FRAGRANCE:

DOLCE & GABBANA VELVET CYPRUS

$230; Saks Fifth Avenue

So that fancy Mediterranean vacay you planned didn’t pan out, huh? This light scent inspired by notes from the region like Italian Cypress, Bergamot and Lemon is far from the real thing, but it’ll definitely keep you smelling good.

This fragrance had a nice opening burst, which was probably my favorite layer. I appreciate scents that take me places and I’d consider this to be one of those.

BEST TOOTHPASTE:

SUPERSMILE WHITENING TOOTHPASTE

$21; supersmile.com

Brighten your coffee-and-wine-stained smile without the hefty cost of getting it done by a professional. The hero ingredient, CALPROX, has bleaching properties that whiten teeth without wearing away the enamel.

I saw a dramatic difference after just a few weeks. It’s a lot gentler than other whitening formulas.
