Advantages: Provides long lasting protection, Very economical price, Good variations in fragrance and types to choose from
Disadvantages: Small bottle
Througout a majority of my adult life I have always uses a deodorant/anti-perspirant and have used many different brands over that period of time.
I do not really sweat in abundance as my work has more to do with paper than anything else. I also do not suffer from any excessive body odour or the likes.
However I have always found it necessary to use a deodorant/anti-perspirant in order to maintain a clean and fresh feeling and for the odd time that I do tend to end up in a sweat.
Initially I used the spray on type and then changed to the roll on version. My reasons for this was that with the spray (aerosol) versions I personally felt that the contents tend to evaporate a lot more quickly than the roll-on version, when applied. Also that the roll-on types last a lot longer than the aerosol ones and therefore provide you with much more economy.
The brand that I have been using since the last one year has been Nivea For Men Roll-On. That was until I visited Boots a couple of week ago.
To my surprise I came accross the Boots 24 Hours Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant in Roll-On form.
What particularly caught my attention was that these were on special offer of "Buy 1 and get 1 Free". The price was just £1.09 so this basically equates to around 55p a bottle.
Sure during the last year I have seen many different brands of deodorants but have never been tempted to buy them even though they were slightly cheaper than the one that I presently use and never really enough to tempt me. But this is different. I mean this represents a huge saving and one that just cannot be ignored.
You would have thought that at this price the product would be centered around the word "economy" and may have some flaws or provide you with less scope for choice especially in the variety of fragrances available. However surprisingly it is available in a total of seven different variations and these are:
Sensitive Light Frag
In the above you have a good choice and one that is available to both men and women. The "Sport" variety is the only one that clearly targets the male species but the rest of them are truly unisex.
The Boots 24 Hours Deodorant Roll-On comes in 50ml bottles and are small enough to be carried around easily. This is great for women (as you ladies always have your bags). However since this does provide you with excellent protection for long periods of time I doubt that you would need to take it along anyway.
I have been using it for around two weeks now and found it to be quite satisfactory. Maybe not as good as my Nivea but only slightly. The liquid applies easily from the plastic ball and does not give you any initial feelings of stickiness, as is the case with some cheaper brands. The quality is one that you would expect from a company like Boots.
The particular variety that I am using is the "Polar" and it has a pleasant minty and fresh scent that suits me just fine. I have the "Coral" to use next and that sounds nice too.
Overall I am very pleased with my new deodorant and especially the price that I paid for it. I just hope that these remain on special offer but even if they don't I doubt that the price would be more than a pound in any case, which still represents excellent value for money.
So next time you're at Boots why don't you check this one out. You might be pleasantly surprised just as I was.
