Best Answer: I've been using this deodorant for years, so have my two teen daughters. We have never experienced any sticky feeling. It is wet when you apply and takes a few minutes to dry before dressing. Also, it can leave a little white on black clothing, so be careful. Having said that, we still LOVE this deodorant. It works GREAT! No sweat, no smell, no build-up, no residue on clothing. I only wish it came in a different dispenser. I would try the small one first, to see how you like it.
