Inexpensive effective anti-perspirant

414987471 8f0c6bbf43 m Inexpensive effective anti perspirantIf you’re looking for an inexpensive but effective anti-perspirant, I would recommend Marks and Spencer Lavender Anti-Perspirant Roll-On under the Floral Collection.

This is a delicately fragranced alcohol free anti perspirant roll-on specially formulated to reduce stinging.  I’ve been using this deodorant for a few years and have been rather happy with it, in the absence of an effective alternative.  It really works, keeping me smelling quite fresh for hours.

Ret rid of those armpit hair

I really want to get rid of my underarm hair.  Permanently if possible.  However, I’m too embarrassed to go to the doctor for a laser or an electrolysis hair removal.   So I shave.  Yes, that’s what I do.

I did try other means but those methods prove too time consuming, painful or messy.  For example, plucking my armpit hair on an almost daily basis.  It was feasible when I could afford a longer time in the bathroom.  But with time constraints now, I’ve to resort to quicker methods.  And I’ve tried using hair removal creams like Veet, but yikes, it’s smelly and messy plus it burns my skin sometimes.  So I’m back to shaving daily.

This is a swivel up, rub on alcohol-free clear stick type of deodorant which is supposed to eliminate offensive armpit odour.  It contains ingredients such as Cabreuva, Gaultherie and Bay Leaf to fight unwanted bacteria; Litsea Cubeba to refresh; while soothing Winterbloom and Neroli to keep user feeling cool, calm and collected.
