Smile Deodorant for a teen boy

My thirteen year old son is just now starting puberty. He is starting to get odor to him when he is playing sports. He is self conscious about it. What is a good deodorant for a teen boy. Any moms know of a good brand that works for their teen boys? He showers every morning so he needs a little something more.He picked out one that doesn't work for him. I think it was more the name brand that appealed to him than whether or not it would work.Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Apply Listerine mouthwash on a cottonball and tell him to rub that onto his underarm. Sounds crazy, but it kills the germs, and therefore helps with stench. He can apply any deodorant after that. But, it's not really necessary.

Have the talk to him tell him part of life changes give him some funds and say here is the deoderant section go for it. There is the sport ones and the manly ones I think if you were to buy one for him buy somthing with a sports theme so he will not feel selfconcscince using it. Dont get anything over powering in smell he might not like it. If you can pop off the top the plastic cover usually will come off and you can smell the scent.

He is a teen dude best thing is not to embarass and get somthing he will like IE Sports type scent

Thanks for the replys. We've had talks about what is going to happen to his body. It's starting. My parents weren't people you could talk to about anything. I want my sons to be able to ask me anything. I just have to make sure i have the answers. So here i am!!Jordan is my first to enter puberty. I can and can't relate to what he's feeling.So if i don't have the answer he needs i come here.Thanks again all.

One thing that might be of value is to check the samples section of several stores and buy some of those sample sizes of various mens deodorants. That way he can try several different kinds to find out what works the best and what he prefers scent wise.
