I am always getting free travel size deodorant samples but I never end up using them. They just take up space in a drawer in my bathroom. I always think they will come in handy one day but they don't see to have yet.

I like the idea of travel deodorant but I am always unimpressed with the selection. I use a right guard deodorant that I like a lot but they do not make the same formula in a travel sized version. I would rather stick with what works than have the convenience of the little stick.

I find travel deodorant really handy because taking a whole stick for a trip of only a few days takes up a lot of unnecessary space in your luggage.

I like to travel as light as possible so I use travel sized versions of all the toiletries I bring.
