I consider myself a very active person. I usually go to the gym three or four times a week. I also like to golf and play other sports such as baseball and basketball. One thing that is very important to a very active person is your choice of deodorant. This is especially true for a guy who sweats a lot like myself. I have tried all types of deodorants and antiperspirants. There are so many different lines and product choices of deodorants and antiperspirants on the market today. The two that I would like to discuss are Right Guard Xtreme and Red Zone from Old Spice antiperspirants. I have used both of these products so I would like to compare the two.
Right Guard Xtreme
Right Guard has been producing deodorants and antiperspirants for years now. In recent years, one of the new offerings from Right Guard has been the Right Guard Xtreme line of antiperspirants. Right Guard Xtreme antiperspirant comes in a number of variety of scents to choose from. Some of the various scents of Right Guard Xtreme include Fresh Blast, Cool Peak, Arctic Refresh, and Energy. The claim of Right Guard Xtreme is that it offers odor and dryness, even in the most extreme conditions.
The main selling point of Right Guard Xtreme is that it has a power stripe of deodorant built into the gel part of the antiperspirant. The power stripe is suppose to be the secret to keeping a person dry in extreme conditions. The power strip is suppose to ad an extra protection that the other brands of deodorants and antiperspirants do not have.
I have used Right Guard Xtreme off and on for the last year of so.
Old Spice has also been a staple in mens grooming products for many years. Old Spice was once well known for their line of aftershave. More recently, Old Spice has grown quite a successful product line of men’s antiperspirants and deodorants. The offer many types including Red Zone. Red Zone is a soft solid antiperspirant. According to their website, Old Spice claims that Red Zone offers a soft solid that has helped revolutionized antiperspirants and offers the best formula for dryness protection on the market. Red Zone from Old Spice is offered in many different varieties including Aqua Reef, Glacier Falls, Original, After Hours, Fresh, Pure Sport, Mountain Rush, Metallic Ice, Arctic Rush, and Unscented.
I decided to try Red Zone because I used to use Old Spice High Endurance Deodorant. High Endurance worked very well. The only problem is that it really irritated my underarms. I would stay dry, but it would fell like their was a fire brewing in my underarms. I thought I would give this one a try to see if Red Zone would have the same or better dryness protection.
I have used both Red Zone and Right Guard Xtreme antiperspirants in the last year. Both types of antiperspirant did a great job of offering all day long odor protection. I never had a problem with smelly underarms using either Red Zone or Right Guard Xtreme. They both offer great a great variety of scents as well.
When it comes to the the ability of Red Zone or Right Guard in keeping your underarms dry, this is where the products really differentiate themselves between the two. Right Guard does offer good dryness protection. The problem is that the protection will wear off after a few hours. If you need all day dryness protection, you will not get it from Right Guard Xtreme. You will need to reapply it at some other point of the day.
The clear winner in the dryness protection is Red Zone. When I use this product, I get all day protection. This is very important to me. I do not have to reapply deodorants or antiperspirant through out the day.
Overall I would have to recommend Red Zone over Right Guard Xtreme. While both offer great odor protection, Red Zone offers longer lasting dryness protection. For an active man like myself, this is the most important thing.
