It’s hard to find the right deodorant that—for one thing—actually works, and also doesn’t make you smell like you’re in high school, and also won’t stain your clothes. But deodorant is one of those staples you can’t live without, so it’s worth getting it right and making sure you find the one that suits you. Same goes for a razor, moisturizer, and even your most basic soap. You’ll find a list of some of our favorite staple products for everyday use.
