Over the last few years FCUK have carved out an ever increasing part of the market with a string of successful toiletries for men and women as well as their clothes lines too. I have owned a few of their different toiletries and they are amongst my favourite brands when I go looking for shower gel or deodorants in Boots or other stores. They recently had a makeover of their products and a number of their range now looks different yet still keeps to the smart look of the brand. FCUK Sport is one of those and is now a lighter black can with a red finish. I think the new range looks nice and goes together well with the other products in the range.
This is an anti perspirant deodorant which promises 48 hour protection against odor and sweat. Well does it work?. Absolutely, The fragrance of this particular deodorant is a nice mix of lemon, juniper and spice which is later joined by cedar, musk and sandalwood. These notes give a nice mix of scents which smell good together. The deodorant works well as soon as it's applied and the scent lasts well and gives you a very pleasant and appealing fragrance. The can is 200ml so will last pretty well as the spray function works well and the fragrance is fairly strong so you don't need to spray too much of it to get the nice scent and the benefits of said scent.
This is an excellent deodorant which gives you very good sweat and odor protection as well as having a very nice scent which starts off with some fruity and spicy notes that are followed by spicy and woody notes. This is an excellent deodorant all round and can be found for around £3.75 in your local Boots stores and can regularly be found as part of decent offers. It goes well with the other products in the FCUK Range and the FCUK Sport shower gel is an ideal thing to have applied before you spray on this deodorant as it mixes so well together. So all in all I would certainly recommend this deodorant. A very nice scent and works well to combat odor and sweat. The only thing to bear in mind though is the price when not part of any deal as £3.75 is twice what you could pay for rival deodorants but I say the little extra is worth it.
FCUK are a well known clothing brand, but they are also establishing a popular body care range as well. You can find their products in Boots stores, although I believe this deodorant may be being discontinued as I bought it on clearance sale for just 38p!
Spray on deodorants are practical for getting ready in a hurry and freshening up as you don't have to wait around for it to dry for ages like you do with roll-ons. This antiperspirant deodorant has a bright green coloured can that caught my eye, and when I noticed the cheap price I had to snap it up as I can't resist a good bargain.
FCUK say: "High performance 24 hour protection with added vitamin E to care for your skin.
A long lasting 24 hour anti-perspirant designed especially for an active lifestyle. Contains menthol to cool skin on contact and anti-oxidant vitamin E to help leave skin feeling refreshed and moisturised.
A refreshing and sophisticated fragrance that blends peach, plum and hyacinth, with a citrus burst of bergamot, lemon and cassis."
The deodorant comes in a standard aerosol spray can, and has a permanently attached lid that swivels around to allow you to open or close the spray nozzle. This is very practical if you are going to be carrying the deodorant in your bag or taking it away with you, as it avoids any accidentals leaks or spills and you don't have to worry about a lid falling off.
Directions for use: "Shake can well before use. Hold upright and spray 15-20 cm away from the body."
The deodorant is very easy to use, simply shake well and then hold the can in position to reach your underarm, then spray as required. It is cooling to the skin during application and has a fresh, clean smell that is more noticeable than other deodorants I've used before. It has a fruity citrus scent that is nice and gives a very clean feeling.
As for protection from sweating during the day, it seems to do a fairly good job. This works very well as a typical everyday anti-perspirant and keeps me feeling dry practically all day long. I don't agree with the 24 hour claim, but I assume it probably gets removed when I wash in the evening.
Being labelled with the FCUK Sport branding, I would have expected this to be effective when exercising. I work out several times a week and this did not provide enough protection to stop me from sweating when I needed it. I don't mind sweating somewhat when I'm exercising as it's a natural healthy response, so I wasn't too worried about it, and am happy with how the deodorant performs normally.
The only problem with this product in my opinion is that it tends to leave obvious white marks on my clothing, which is inconvenient and time wasting when I am getting ready in the mornings. I wear black clothes often so I prefer something that does not leave marks on dark coloured fabrics.
All in all I think this is a good deodorant product, but a shame that it does not have the 'invisible' appearance and leaves marks on my clothes. It works effectively, but I think it could be hard to get hold of to buy again so I will try and keep an eye out for it.
