Origins No Offense Deodorant
This is the first in a series of reviews I will run on tried and tested anti-perspirants and deodorants.
I’ll kick off with this rather-expensive-but-did-nothing-for-me-sweet-smelling Origins No Offense.
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.
Perhaps I really have a more than serious problem of underarm odour, because this product didn’t do anything for me. It had no staying power whatsoever. A few hours after application, my armpit started to perspire and smell offensively. The product obviously couldn’t keep my armpit glands from being active and it was particularly worst on hot sunny days. Some sweet smelling fragrance + heavy perspiration = YUCKY ODOUR!
I was actually very annoyed for having busted S$25 for the 50g tube, which is about five times more than the anti-perspirants I’ve been buying from Marks & Spencer. All because of a moment of folly and curiosity.
Its only saving grace is the smell and the fact that it dries pretty quickly. But these are obviously not enough to soothe my active glands and keep it from sitting useless on my shelf now.
