This is the first in a series of reviews I will run on tried and tested anti-perspirants and deodorants.
This is a swivel up, rub onÂ alcohol-freeÂ clear stickÂ type of deodorant whichÂ is supposed toÂ eliminate offensive armpit odour.Â Â It containsÂ ingredientsÂ such as Cabreuva, Gaultherie and Bay LeafÂ to fight unwanted bacteria;Â Litsea Cubeba to refresh; while soothing Winterbloom and Neroli to keepÂ user feeling cool, calm and collected.Â
Perhaps I really have a more than serious problem of underarm odour, because this product didn’t do anything for me.Â It had no staying power whatsoever.Â Â A few hoursÂ after application, my armpit started to perspire and smell offensively.Â The product obviously couldn’t keep my armpit glands from being active and itÂ was particularlyÂ worst onÂ hot sunny days.Â Some sweet smelling fragrance + heavyÂ perspiration = YUCKY ODOUR!
I was actually very annoyed for having busted S$25 forÂ the 50g tube, which is about five times more than the anti-perspirants I’ve been buying from Marks & Spencer.Â All because of a moment of folly andÂ curiosity.Â
Its only saving graceÂ is the smell and the fact that it dries pretty quickly.Â But these are obviously not enough to soothe my active glands and keep it from sitting uselessÂ on my shelf now.
