Advantages: a deodorant that finally does what it says for a fraction of the cost of those that dont
Disadvantages: runs out quickly due to size
Deodorant.. one of those things we dont talk about. when was the last time you were stood in a lift and asked your colleague next to you "so bert, tell me, what kinda deodorant do you wear?" just, you know, as a casual icebreaking conversation starter. Never? well theres a thing. maybe the fact that the ice breaking conversation starter would swiftly and without warning turn into a nose breaking conversation ender could prevent such remarks. As the risk of your colleague considering them to be less than tactful hints at his extreme BO issue would be pretty damn high. And it would appear the theme would continue here, this being the first boots deodorant review written! gulp. I'd best do a good job.
So here i am, putting myself out there, reviewing the strange unknown liquid that prevents the afore mentioned BO problem from knocking at my door.
I never have been an overtly "glowing" person, but, throughout the years, as any female would, i like to make sure that my perfume remains the overriding scent du jour as it were. Ok when i come out the gym it may be slightly different, or the gorgeous smell of chlorine after a lengthy pool session but you get the general idea.
I have since a very young age tried numerous different deodorants. soft and gentle evening mist (smells of blueberries and soooo yesterday) sure spray on (made my underarms look like a fox with mange, extreme allergic reaction you understand) secrets (do you remember the one? advertised as "never leaves white marks" when the only thing it was good for was LEAVING white marks!!
Eventually i settled on a roll on, until one day, I was in boots, i'd left my purse and card at home and was facing a warm summers day deodorant free. Scraping around in my purse i came up wth the requisite 59p!! (it has increased marginally since then) and purchased boots 24hour in cool blue.
And i have never looked back. It works like a charm and for a fraction of the cost. I'd say it even works better than mitchum which is 4x the price!! it rolls on smoothly and dries astoundingly quickly. the perfume fades to a subtle undertone and does not ever threaten to enter battle with your favour l'eau de toilette.
the smell is cool and refreshing and very unobtrusive once dried it prevents perspiration on all but the hottest days or a hard workout. the packaging is small and easy to discreetly hide inside a handbag and is recyclable too. compared to most roll ons it is small in stature which makes it run out quicker but with a price far belw a pound who can complain at that! and the best bit. It leaves minimal white marks on clothing.
Heres the best bit. my ex loved it. i was constantly having to steal it back from his bag and never again did i have to buy him expensive mens deodorants. he refused to use them this one was so good!
I have looked through the labels and compared with other brands and have no idea what it is in this deodorant that makes it so effective where otehrs have failed. i can see no difference in ingredients, but whatever it is, it works!!! and i really hope that boots dont make like a car dealer and change a perfectly good formula just because its been on the shelf a year or two.
and if they do, well, the hunt of the last 18 years will begin again, and then maybe i will get chance to be the first reviewer once more....
Summary: why waste money on big brands. buy boots!!
