I really really struggle with deodorants. I have extremely sensitive skin under my arms and so many I've tried just do not agree with me. Some times I can be using a deodorant for weeks with no problems and then my body suddenly decides to be allergic and I can no longer use it. My under arm skin gets so sore, my skin cracks leaving horrible weepy wounds after trying a new deodorant, (not nice and probably too much information I know, sorry!). Anyway this makes it incredibly hard to find a deodorant that I can actually use.
With this problem in mind, I always try to find a brand that is for sensitive skin when I need to pick a new one.
I started buying Sanex sensitive when I saw it in the pound shop, it is a roll on which is great for me and sprays seem to make me flare up worse.
I really do not like the design of the product. I think it is really ugly looking especially compared to all the other nice and fancier looking deodorants. It has a rounded top, that is a peachy - nude colour and a clear case for the bottom with the Sanex logo and writing on it, this pops off to expose the roller ball part.
I do not like it, but I suppose it doesn't really matter so long as it is nice deodorant.
It smells quite nice, I like nice feminine girly smells. This is a nice fresh smell but still very feminine.
When applying the deodorant, quite a lot comes out making your armpits quite wet and it does take quite a while to dry. Not great if you are in a hurry!
I can smell the fragrance through out the day as I move which I really like as it reassures me that it is still working as it should do.
I am very loyal to this brand as it is one of the only ones I can use now, I have tried others in the range including one with a bright pink lid and it smells lovely, I really like it however it sadly does not agree with my sensitive arm pits!!
I would recommend this deodorant to anyone who had a problem with sensitive skin like me!

My preference is normally for spray-on deodorants, but recently I had run out of my usual spray on and only had a Sanex roll on deodorant in the house so started to use this. It was the Sanex "Dermo Sensitive " Roll On Deodorant.
This product comes in a short plastic bottle. The base of the bottle is transparent and flat on the bottom allowing it to stand up. The top of the bottle is peach in colour, and to remove the top from the base you simply twist it and pull it up. The roller ball applicator is held in the top of the bottle meaning it is kind of held upside down, and the applicator therefore always has plenty of deodorant on it when you go to use it. This also has the advantage that when you are reaching the end of the bottle you can use up every last bit of the product.
The liquid itself can be seen on the applicator. It is creamy and pale in colour. When you apply this deodorant it rolls onto your skin easily and your underarms feel wet. The smell is fresh and feminine and has a slight floral hint. I find that the smell is evident after you apply the deodorant but disappears as the day goes on, unlike with some spray deodorants. I suppose this has the advantage that it will not compete or clash with perfume or any other fragrances you are wearing. The deodorant takes a few minutes to dry, so if I am wearing tight clothing I need to wait a little while before I get dressed. This deodorant does not leave any white stains or marks on your clothes.
I think this is a really effective deodorant and it certainly works as an anti-perspirant. When I wear this product I do not experience any sweating no matter how warm I get. I am prone to irritated skin and I sometimes get this on my underarms along with itching, however since I have started using this deodorant this has healed up. I would therefore recommend it for anyone with sensitive skin like myself.
This deodorant costs £1.55 at full price in Boots but it is often discounted or on offer, which is when I picked it up for the first time. I give this product a 5* rating along with my recommendation, and I would definitely buy it again. Thanks for reading/rating.
I usually use sure deodorants and this is my preferred brand but when they had not got this in the shop a few weeks ago I opted for this one instead as the sanex name was one I was lead to believe could be trusted.
The first thing I noticed is that it has a rather feminine smell to it which I didn't mind but the one im used to is more of a neutral smell.
It did not sting like some others do when applying it to my skin even after shaving but I did find it took a while to dry and even after drying left a powdery residue on my clothes.
I don't lead a too active of a life style at the moment so it didn't have to live up to a lot and its a good job really as it didn't do the job it was intended to, it didn't stop me from sweating and felt rather sticky and uncomfortable although I didn't smell so I suppose that is a plus side but I want a deodorant that stops me smelling not just masks the smell so I wont be buying this again
I've got really sensitive skin and as a result I have to be really careful when selecting products to use. After years of persevering with other deodorants that caused rashes and pain, I tried Sanex Sensitive.
I'm not great at identifying odours - to me it just smells like a normal deodorant. I don't think it's perfumed with anything which is probably why it is so effective. The deodorant smell doesn't linger for too long after it is applied and I have always found it to dry pretty quickly.
As far as the sensitive goes, I have never had any problems whatsoever. I can shave and apply and there is no sensitivity. I've had no rashes or flair ups of eczema - in terms of being sensitive - it is perfect! Basically it does the job - good deodorant for sensitive skin.
I often find supermarkets and chemists have it on buy one get one free but even if it isn't on offer, it is around £1 and lasts me for a good month.
The only negative point I have, it does leave white marks. But most deodorants do and I'm not willing to swap this as it works so effectively for me for one that claims not to leave white marks.
Some months ago, while in my local Lloyds chemist, I noticed a display of reduced priced goods. Among the selection were two lines from the Sanex range of roll-on deodorants. Two things particularly caught my eye. Firstly, they were in plastic bottles so they would make a perfect addition to my stash of 'supplies' to take abroad with me. And then there was the price. Already reduced to 60p per bottle, an additional offer of three-for-the-price-of-two had been applied. At 40p per bottle, in perfect packaging for travelling and from a company I believed would come up with a reasonably good product, how could I lose? I cleared the shelf.
The two variations were "dermoinvisible" (the pink one) and "dermosensitive" (the peach-coloured one). I will review the latter today.
I don't know whether Sanex were the first company to design an "upside-down" roll-on deodorant dispenser, but they were certainly among the first to do so. It is rather a short, squat bottle with a bulbous, peach-coloured top which sits inside a translucent, colourless base. The top part is actually the receptacle which holds the deodorant, but by resting upside-down into the lid/holder, it allows the liquid to constantly bathe the roller ball and thereby prevent the ball from drying out and sticking. (It also means that it is easy to use the very last drop of deodorant.) The shape of the bottle makes it easy to hold and the larger-than-average roller ball allows easy and smooth dispensing of the liquid. Just a little twist is needed to detach the bottle from its base - and to close it.
I must say I find the label rather annoying. The Sanex logo - the dark blue rectangle with white lettering is clear enough, but beyond that I find the design with its superimposed script and images cluttered and difficult to read. And that's just the label on the front of the bottle. The rear label has information in three languages crammed into a small space and the printers have resorted to using the tiniest typeface in order to achieve this. The end result, for me anyway, is that much of the information is illegible without using a magnifying glass - and I have neither the time nor the inclination to go to those lengths!
I can make out three logos though, one to indicate the contents should be used within 12 months of opening, the old-style "Keep Britain Tidy" image of a man disposing of his litter responsibly and a final one to indicate the bottle can be recycled.
The liquid is smooth, almost creamy and very pale peach-coloured. The perfume is distinctive. It is sweet, floral, 'powdery' and very slighly 'fruity' in aroma. I have a fancy I can smell something akin to peaches/apricots in the scent but that could be nothing more than my imagination playing tricks - given all the hints at 'peachiness' suggested by the product and package colouring!
The deodorant spreads easily, does not sting and the time it takes to dry seems to be about average for this type of roll-on. I haven't gone so far as to time it but it must take somewhere in the region of a minute or two to dry. (The manufacturer's do instruct the user to allow the deodorant to dry before dressing.)
In terms of maintaining dryness throughout the day, I find it to be very good. Not perfect though - there have been a couple of occasions following strenuous work on a hot day when it has not managed to maintain total dryness. However for the British climate and in normal, everyday circumstances I thought that it performed adequately. The fresh smell lingers throughout the day too, which was reassuring, but I wondered at times if the fragrance was just a little too pervasive. I thought it could have the potential to 'clash' with any perfume which may be worn.
The manufacturers claim that this deodorant has moisturising properties and I must say that after continued use my skin did feel very soft and smooth and quite soothed. At no time when using this product did I encounter any hint of stinging, soreness or irritation. It does not contain alcohol which is, in my view, a positive thing. Although no details are offered, the label states that the product has been "dermatologically tested".
As with most products of this type, the makers instruct that anyone who experiences irritation should stop using the deodorant.
For those who need to know exactly what is in their personal care products, the ingredients list is as follows:
Aqua, Aluminium Chlorohydrate, Glycerin, PPG-15 Stearyl Ether, Steareth-2, Cyclopentasiloxane, Steareth-21, Parfum, Talc, Lactis Proteinum, Dimethicone, BHT.
Anyone who experiences allergic reaction to aluminium is not going to find this product suitable.
Lactis Proteinum - milk protein - is said to have skin conditioning properties.

~~~Price and availability~~~
I have a feeling that the superb offer I chanced upon in Lloyds was due to a decision to discontinue the line from this store - I haven't seen it in that shop since! You can buy it from Boots though and they are currently charging £1.73. Sainsbury's usually stock this for £1.32 but I noticed in my nearest store only last week that it was on offer for 66p. A quick check tonight confirmed that it is still available at that price from Sainsbury's Online.
This is a gentle and soothing roll-on deodorant. I find it adequately effective in terms of the freshness and dryness it provides under normal usage conditions but I would question whether it could stand up to more rigorous testing. The fragrance is rather strong and it really is down to personal taste whether this could be considered a boon or a detraction!
Despite the near-useless labelling and - in my view - rather tacky and cheap looking packaging, I do find the bottle to be extremely practical and easy to use. It is particularly handy for anyone who is going to be travelling as the packaging is very light but also seems quite robust.
I wouldn't like to pay the full recommended price but it would appear that by keeping an eye open for current offers in different stores there is no need to!

Dermo Sensitive Roll on Deodorant
Deodorant is an essential bathroom product in our household as I am guessing it is in millions of other houses. When choosing a deodorant I tend to favour whatever is on special offer at the time, but I usually always have at least one Sanex product among the bunch.
The first thing I noticed when I apply this Dermo sensitive roll on is that I loved the smell of it. When you roll it on it smells refreshing but in a light talcum powdery creamy way. It smells quite feminine and although the scent is clearly present when you apply this after it has settled although you can smell it I don't believe that it will compete with any other fragrances you might want to wear.
Personally, I apply this in the morning after I have showered and unless it is in the height of summer this more often than not keeps me feeling and smelling fresh all day. Being a roll on this is a bit damper than a spray so it does take a few moments to settle onto the skin but nothing longer than you would expect from any similar liquid roll on. It is easy to get a good coverage with this deodorant as it applies smoothly so you don't need to be overly heavy handed, in fact quite a lot of this comes out with only a small movement.
Another great thing about this Dermo sensitive deodorant is that although it is not one of the invisible range of no mark deodorants I have never noticed that it has left any nasty white stains on my clothes, even a dark or blacktop. The deodorant (as I always prefer to use) is alcohol free which means that you can apply this even after shaving and it won't sting. This deodorant never seems to dry out my skin which I have experienced with some other roll on deodorants.
This is a deodorant for sensitive skin which I can sometimes suffer from and often shaving or waxing my underarms can really irritate the delicate skin. This deodorant never irritates even my irritated skin and doesn't make my skin feel like it is uncomfortable or drying out. Overall this is a great deodorant whether you have sensitive skin or not, it keeps you feeling clean and confident while having a lovely delicate feminine fragrance.
I actually find that because I don't need to use a lot of this then it really does last for quite a while before it runs out, usually I get a month or so use from each roll on, making this excellent value for money. Typically I stock up on these when they are on offer but you can find these in most supermarkets for around £1 to £1.50. The packaging is also a great size and sturdy enough to throw in your gym bag or travel bag without carrying anything to big and not worrying about it getting bashed about or leaking.
This gets a five out of five stars from me. I would and have in the past recommend this deodorant to other people as I have never been let down with it. It is one of my favourites and is one I pick up time and time again.
I have been a fan of Sanex roll on deodorants for a few years now, mostly opting for the 'Dermo Protector' range. However, on one shopping trip I decided to buy a different brand which left my armpits red and sore. Because of this, I decided to try the Sanex 'Dermo Sensitive' range to try and rectify my problem. It is priced at around £1.50, though can often be found cheaper in shops such as Home Bargains and B&M's.
The packaging of all the Sanex roll on deodorants tends me the same, only differing in colour. The style of packaging is actually quite difficult to explain. The lid is at the bottom of the bottle, acting as the stand. The deodorant sits inside this, and is unscrewed from the base. The packaging of the deodorant section is a peachy colour, whilst the lid is frosted. It contains 50ml of deodorant.
On the packaging it is claimed that the deodorant gives effective protection for 24 hours, moisturises whilst allowing skin to breathe. It is also mentioned that the product is dermatologically tested.
The deodorant is easy to apply, it is quite a thick white coloured roll-on. One problem with it been so thick is that it is easy to apply too much. The deodorant takes around 5 minutes to try, but this is obviously dependent on how thick of a layer you apply. I really like the smell, it's my favourite of all the Sanex deodorants, and it reminds me of washing powder, a clean smell, not too strong.
I have been using this deodorant for quite some time now and have been pretty impressed. I apply it in a morning and feel clean and fresh for the rest of the day, before reapplying it after showering in the evening. Whether it lasts 24 hours I am not sure, and don't really fancy trying it either. It helped relieve the redness left after using a previous brand and I have had no problems since. I will continue to use the Sanex brand, whether this one in particular I am not sure as normally I don't have a problem with sensitive skin, however I know if I do suffer from further irritation I can rely on this product to sort it out.
I don't have particularly sensitive skin in general, but for some reason I often find that my armpits react badly to some antiperspirants. Because of that, I like to opt for deodorants that are specifically formulated for sensitive skin whenever possible. I've used Sanex products in the past without a problem so I chose this one as my latest deodorant.
I normally bypass discussions about packaging as you can usually see it fairly clearly in the product image. I'm going to mention it here though as it's not immediately clear in the product image how this deodorant should be opened.
The deodorant stick itself is actually upside down in the clear bottom half of the packaging. To open, you only need to gently pull on the top half. However, when you're replacing the deodorant in this upside down lid, you need to slide it back in and turn it slightly to the left so that it 'clicks' into place and won't fall out if it's tipped upside down. This is simple but clever, as I imagine it would be incredibly easy for the 'lid' to be as good as useless otherwise.
One thing I'm not keen on is the upside down nature. Because the deodorant is essentially upside down itself when not in use, I find that it drips down into the lid. I've decided that this must be excess deodorant that's been 'rolled' to the ball of the deodorant and is dripping down once the cap has been replaced. For this reason, I'd prefer that there was an option to store it the 'right' way up but this isn't possible as the top is round and only the bottom is flat enough to act as a stand.
***What is the deodorant like?***
This is a roll-on deodorant. It's a whitish shade in colour, so I was worried that it would leave a stain on my clothes, especially as it isn't marketed as one of those that doesn't. Once the deodorant is dry, this doesn't seem to be the case but you do have to be careful not to let it get anywhere near your clothes while it's drying as it does seem to leave marks then.
On average, it takes anything from two to five minutes to fully dry depending on how much has been applied. There is a fresh, clean scent to it which isn't overly strong so it shouldn't clash with perfume or body spray.
Results-wise, it keeps me dry for most of the day. Like many antiperspirants these days, it claims to offer 24 hour protection. I'm not sure that this is really the case with any deodorant - and this one is not exception there - but it's been better than most.
***Will I buy it again?***
I've been pretty impressed with this deodorant in general. It doesn't cause any irritation to my underarms (unless it's used after shaving and that's to be expected!), keeps me dry for the majority of the day and doesn't leave any dreaded white marks. It's also fairly good value at £1.69 for 50ml (from Boots, so you may be able to get it cheaper elsewhere). I've seen this in my local Poundland so I'll most probably be getting my replacement from there when it runs out. All in all, I'm really happy with this deodorant and I'll definitely be buying it again.
I actually received a sample of this deodorant to test and review for a similar site to this so I thought Ill share on a few sites what I actually thought of the product.
What it promises:
It promises to keep odour at bay for at least 24 hours.
It promises an intense mousturisation.
And it promises a ph balance that will allow your skin to breathe.
Does it deliver on its promises:
Well on the odour front if you put it on before you go to bed and therefore wont be doind anything yes it will stop you odour coming back all night, but if you are applying it in the morning which most people will and you going to work or doing things throughout the day then it wont last you will have to keep applying it. So I dont think it really delievers on that front.
Your underarm skin does feel more moisturised and soft so they are telling the truth with that promise.
And lastly it does have a ph balance that contains no alcohol that will not irritate your skin and it certainly doesnt so this is another promise it certainly keeps.
After a quick compare on a few sites I found:
So after that quick search you could buy it for around £2.00 or cheaper which is very good value for money. And you can pick it up in most good fragrance shops.
Scent: It smells very fresh for the time it lasts. A sort of flowery smell but which makes you feel and smell very fresh and clean.
Lately, due to an itchy skin problem caused by an allergy to limonene and linalool chemicals contained in just about everything that possesses a citrus scent, I have been clearing out my cupboards of all 'contaminated' items and have come to the conclusion that I can either rejoice at the space that's been gained... or shed tears at the knowledge that I will have to replace everything I've been chucking out!
My step-daughter will be chuffed, to say the least, when she inherits the latest in cosmetics, shampoos, conditioners, face and body creams/lotions, body scrubs, hand creams, shower gels and bubble bath, and the list goes on.
My latest acquisition, Sanex Dermo Sensitive Anti-Perspirant, has taken the place usually reserved for my beloved Sure... a place that is shaky at best because I'm not actually impressed.
Fist things first, Sanex Dermo Sensitive Anti-Perspirant Deodorant 24H belongs, of course, to the Sanex family. Sanex products are inexpensive [in general] with a good quality, especially the hand washes... hmmmm... I notice I just chucked that away too... never mind... let's just concentrate on the deodorant for now.
The container is a bit odd... I haven't yet quite understood what the shape is supposed to represent... an inverted egg with really big pores? Not quite sure - maybe someone out there knows and wouldn't mind sharing this bit of info with me? Just checking. Anyways, the top portion of the container, the eggy thingy shape with the pores, is a skin/pink/salmon/peach colour [not sure there either], and unscrews from the base which, in reality, is actually the cap but acts as a bottom in this case. Are you still with me? Keep up then... now, unscrewing the top, which is actually the base, you get to the roller ball which is similar to all other roll-on anti-perspirants.
The scent is extremely familiar, and I find myself assaulted by images of my son's bare bottom when he was a baby just after I had changed his diaper and was at the baby powder stage! For those of you who haven't done the diaper and baby powder thing, suffice it to say that after having changed a few thousand diapers and applied baby powder to chubby cheeks, the scent of the powder loses its charm. I can't stand the scent of baby powder! So why purchase this item? I didn't. My husband did, thinking he'd done well to find a product that didn't contain the nefarious chemicals listed above. I hadn't the heart to tell him I hated the scent, although he might have guessed at my feelings when I unscrewed the top/bottom and wrinkled my nose.
Once again... moving on... the Sanex anti-perspirant deodorant doesn't contain alcohol, a good thing, and the label states that it contains lactoserum, don't actually know if that's a good thing?! Other ingredients are; Aqua, Aluminium Chlorohydrate, Glycerin, PPG-15 Stearyl Ether, Steareth-2, Cyclopentasiloxane, Steareth-21, Parfum, Allantoin, Lactis Proteinum, Dimethicone and BHT.
Normally sold at Sainsbury's for £1.32 [50ml], it's presently on sale for .66p... therefore pretty cheap, which is just as well because I can't say that I actually like it!
I don't like the scent, but that's okay because there are other scents available in this range, all of them safe for me to use, however, I'm not certain I want to go on that adventurous 'scent' expedition because I'm not actually sure I like this product.
Although the shape of the plastic container/bottle is pleasing to the eye, fits nicely in the palm of your hand and rolls on smoothly, the anti-perspirant itself feels sticky when its freshly applied, and stays that way for a minute or so... meaning that I have to keep my arms up for a few moments after applying in order to let it dry - if you don't do that [which I didn't the first time I used it] your armpits will feel really wet and sticky. That is definitely a no-no for me, as I like to apply and move on, not stand in front of the mirror doing the duck dance with my arms waving around in a veritable frenzy.
I miss my old anti-perspirant, but my armpits don't - Sanex keeps them itch-free, soft and odour-free for 24H... even if they do smell like a powdered baby's bottom!
I have very sensitive skin and my underarms are no exception to this, I cant really use spray deodorant because of this, so I always am looking for a good roll on that wont sting or cause my skin to flake. I decided to try this deodorant under the advice of my mum as she has the same problem with her skin as well.
The first thing I would like to say about this deodorant is that it caused absolutely no reation to my skin, I sometimes get a rash from using products such as this one but I after usage my underarms were not all red and stingy as they normally are.
This roll on costs around £1.50 and can be bought in almost any shop that sells cosmetics or hygiene products.
When applying this roll on you can notice a very nice clean smell that comes from it, it seems to keep you dry all day though I havent tried it out in summer yet lol!
This roll on is also good because it doesnt leave any white marks on your skin or your clothes. These marks have embarrassed me on more than one occassion but with this product I feel safe from that sort of humiliation.
I reccommend this product to anyone with sensitive skin as it has certainly worked for me. This roll on provides a nice clean smell with no stings for the user. For me this is the best roll on I could buy when Im doing my shop.

Sanex Dermo Sensitive - Anti-Perspirant Deodorant
**WHAT IT DOES**
This is a anti-perspirant deodorant which actively works with the skin whilst letting the skin breathe. It gives 24-hour protection. Its dermo active formulation with lactoserum cares for sensitive skin.
This deodorant comes in a very unique bottle. It is a tube, which is round at the top and bottom. It is white and peach in colour. The shape means it is handy to grip and use. As it is a lot smaller than most deodorants it is important that you can grip it easily. The lid is also unique and it is clear so you can see the tube. You put the tube in upside down and screw the lid on. You then can leave the container upright, as the top of the lid is flat so you can set it up if needed. On the front of the lid there is a label with the Sanex logo on it. Plus it gives you brief details of the product, It label is blue white and peach. On the back there is also a label giving you more detailed information on the product in blue writing. It has been written in different languages. The container is durable, small, and waterproof. It is great for putting into a bag and taking it with you so you can use it when needed. It won't take up a lot of space.
Aqua, Aluminum Chlorohydrate Glycerin, PPG-15 Stearyl Ether, Steareth-2, Cyclopentasiloxane, Steareth-21, Parfum, Talc, Lactis Proteinum, Dimethicone, BHT
I'm not sure what any of these ingredients are but if you are allergic to anything this may be useful to you. It contains a dermo active formulation with lactoserum, which is great for sensitive skin and will not irritate it. The product is dermatologically tested.
The deodorant itself has a pleasant powdery smell, which leaves you smelling fresh. When applied it is white but if you pat it gently this will go away. Also if you don't put much on you will not notice the whiteness. It will leave you protected from sweat and odour for 24 hours.
DIRECTIONS OF USE: After washing put deodorant on under your arms to keep them fresh. Leave the deodorant a few minutes to dry before putting on your clothes.
The product costs £1.49, which I think is great value as it really does work and lasts a long time.
I find this deodorant is great as it keeps me fresh all day long. It doesn't irritate my skin, which is important, as some deodorants leave me with a sore red rash. I think this may be because it doesn't have strong perfumes in it. The smell is pleasant and you can't really smell it once it has been on for a while which I think is a good thing. The only problem is that if you are wearing a black T-shirt you will need to make sure to let it dry in properly as it could leave white marks on your clothes. If this does happen it is easily wiped off however it is very annoying especially if you are in a rush. Overall I think it is great value for money and I will definitely be buying it again as it really does work for me.
A couple of weeks ago I noticed that I was starting to get a bit of a rash under my arms. I put this down to using cheap razors, as I was also getting it on my legs, where I'd also shaved. In the past I have had flare ups of eczema under my arms, which always seem to start after a shaving rash, as the skin becomes dry and itchy. Obviously as we are (hopefully) moving towards summer, this is a bit of an annoyance, because I don't want to spend the summer in long sleeves as I have done in previous years. I suppose the best thing to do, might be to leave it until it clears up, but I'm not going without shaving my armpits or wearing deodorant - sorry, but I'm just not!
I usually use Dove Invisible deodorant, which I am happy with, and is gentle on my skin. When I ran out and went to replace my bottle, I spotted Sanex Dermo Sensitive deodorant on special offer. Looking at the bottle it promised to care for sensitive skin, and also contains 0% alcohol, so no stinging. It sounded just what I needed, and despite not having tried any Sanex products before, I decided to give it a go.
The actual deodorant stands upside down. It is hard to describe, but you can probably see from the picture above. The peach coloured round bit, at the top, is actually the handle part, and the clear part at the bottom is the lid. The benefit of it standing upside down, is that there is always product on the roller ball.
The roller ball glides easily over the skin, I've used roll on deodorants before where they seem to dry out and the ball becomes difficult to turn. As it contains no alcohol, it doesn't sting in any way, even on the part of my skin where I have a rash.
I must admit, I'm not really keen on the smell of this product. It has a very floral, almost powdery smell - it reminds me of the sort of floral talc your granny would use. It was not exactly overpowering, but still quite strong, and I found that to be quite a negative point, especially having used Dove and Nivea products previously, which by contrast have very gentle and pleasant fragrances.
Obviously the most important point of a deodorant is to keep you dry. I put this deodorant on before going to work last week. As it was hot, I was just wearing a T-Shirt. I walked to work, which is only about a 10 minute walk from my house and by the time I got there I was really obviously sweating. Considering I have been walking that same route to work for four years now, I know for a fact that even when it's hot outside, I shouldn't be sweating like that. I didn't even think I was the sort of person who sweated a lot, but perhaps I do, and my past deodorants are so good, I haven't noticed!!!
Another thing that really annoyed me, was that this stuff got on my clothes. I was wearing a black vest top, which was new, and applied this deodorant. Although it didn't leave white marks, it got on my clothes and made ended up with crusty patches under the arms (sexy, huh?), although thinking about it, maybe it was because this stuff wasn't protecting me from sweating.
On my sensitive skin, I found this to be fine. It didn't irritate at all, and luckily the rash I developed seems to be clearing up.
I bought this from Superdrug, for just £1.19
Well needless to say, I wont be using this again. I actually got it on buy one get one free, so I have another Sanex deodorant waiting to be used - I cant say I'm looking forward to trying it. I didn't like the smell, and it didn't keep me dry, however on the plus side it was OK on my sensitive skin, and I like the packaging because it's quite different.
