We've all been there: You're giving a presentation or you're on a first date and instead of focusing on the moment, all you can think is, "Do I have sweat stains? Am I getting white stuff on my dress? Is my dry cleaner going to think I'm stalking him?" In order to find the best deodorant, you've got to go through a lot of bad ones. Luckily, TotalBeauty.com readers aren't shy about sharing what deodorants and antiperspirants work — and which ones are a (floral-scented) hot mess.

If you're looking for a long-lasting, sweat-preventing, fresh-smelling deodorant, then have no fear. Here are the 11 best deodorants — and the ones you should avoid — on the market according to our readers.

Worst Deodorant No. 4: Clinique Antiperspirant Deodorant Roll-On, $13
TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 6.5*

Why: "Because it is a clear liquid, I thought [it] would be perfect for summer — no more white marks on my clothes!" says one reader. "Wrong. It's a clear liquid when it goes on, but when it dries there's still a bit of white to it." Another reader adds, "It just feels oddly wet … and there is a bit of a smell to it."

Worst Deodorant No. 2: Suave 24-Hour Protection Invisible Solid Deodorant, $3.99
TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 5.8*

Why: "The price made me swoon, [but this product] cost me quite a bit more embarrassment than I had planned on," says one reader. "Everything you hate in a deodorant is in this one: It leaves white stains on clothes, clumps and feels like glue underneath your arms." Reviewers say this product "does not glide on smoothly" and they feel like they are "trying to rub a candle or a dry bar of soap" on their underarms.

TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 4.9*

Why: One reader says, "If this was my only option for an antiperspirant, I'd rather stay indoors." Another reader agrees, saying this "doesn't help prevent perspiration at all," and the powder scent of this product is "way too intense."
