Advantages: Does keep you fresh and hydrated all day long
Disadvantages: The white marks on clothes and pits!
I own so many deodorants! I'm not even a smelly person (honest) but I am a hygiene freak and so I own many different types and brands of antiperspirant. My favorite is one that I can spray on me and I do love the Dove brand (as a rule) so when I saw this in my local Sainsbury's Store priced £1.89 a can (do look out for this on offer though) I thought I really must try it out!
150ml burgundy long cylinder can with matching push on/off lid/cap over an integrated large push button aerosol sprayer. I'm told of the front of the can of course that it is Dove (silver Dove emblem is on there which is the branding of course), Pro.Age Anti-Perspirant Deodorant 'All day protection with the extra care your underarm skin needs right now' and I'm told this will keep me fresh for 24hours and contains moisturising cream. On the back of the can I'm told a bit about the product, how to use it, warnings are listed as are the ingredients, contact details for Unilever are given (the manufacturer of all Dove products), the size is stated as is the recycle symbol and finally there is a bar-code on there. Nice, mature and easy to use can this is and I like the way it has a slight dent to the middle of it which makes it easy to grip hold of and spray away!
A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Can....
Why Dove Make This Product....
To give 24h protection, of course. But it's also made to take care of underarm skin, which just like the skin on the rest of your body now needs extra care.
How It Works....
It contains 1/4 moisturising cream to maintain your skin's resilience and to help keep it in optimal condition
What You Can Expect....
It not only keeps you fresh and dry all day, but also gives you the extra care your underarm skin needs right now.
Directions For Use....
Shake well. Hold can 15cm from the underarm and spray.
Me Using It....
Because the spray button is large and the can is slightly dented (as I mentioned already) it's really easy to direct this fine mist of spray to your underarms with ease.
Smell wise to me it's like a cotton fresh sort of smell. Sort of lightly floral but fresh and natural smelling really. Once sprayed on the smell does stay delicately on your under arms for a good couple of hours but even when the smell isn't so apparent it just quietly works in the background.
However I find that if I'm not careful this does spray on and go to white powder and it crumbles and flakes. I can avoid this by really spraying a small amount to the area and from a long distance and it's fine. However on more than a couple of occasions I have sprayed this on and then had to 'dust' my armpits with my hands and this then does transfer on to clothes still and stuff.
Yes my armpits do feel very soft and supple with this on. It delivers a slight hydration to the area without grease. Yes it smells nice in it's own way and more importantly yes it works really very well. Even though I don't like the white powder residue (if as I said I'm not careful applying it!) not once has my armpits felt greasy or smelling or anything else but pleasant and fresh and I can vouch for the fact it has worked for well over 24 hours on me (out partying!).
Soft, mild and gentle, you can spray this immediately after shaving if you want to with no nasty effects. However this is really not for me. The smell isn't as nice as it could be (I'm 34 years old and find this a little on the old fashioned side to be honest with you) but the white marks appearing on my clothes don't also look unsightly when done they are really hard to get washed out and have stained a couple of my black items of clothing! For me this is a no no on them grounds sadly and I'm not one bit impressed with this product!
Available in all good supermarkets and chemists etc.
Summary: Not the best Dove product I've ever used!
