This particular deodorant is a roll on applicator which is my preferred method of applying deodorant. The design of the bottle is practical with a tapered design towards the applicator ball which makes the bottle easy to hold, even with wet hands. I particularly like the upside down design which helps to keep the ball and deodorant flowing freely and avoids waste, although I haven't noticed this 50ml bottle lasting any longer than other brands.
Like many modern deodorants, this claims to be a 48 hour anti-perspirant deodorant which does strike me as unnecessary as I'm sure people nowadays wash and shower more frequently than ever before. This also claims to be 'invisible' and promises not to leave white marks on black clothing nor yellow stains on white clothing (gross!) I have recently cleared out my wardrobe and had to dispose of some tops due to unsightly deodorant marks under the arms so I was particularly pleased about these claims. Interestingly, this Garnier deodorant also promises an anti-fading action on coloured clothing which isn't something that I've ever experienced as a problem although I have noticed some 'stiffening' under the arms on some fabric, which is also something that this claims to avoid.
In addition, this 48 hour anti-perspirant claims to allow skin to breath and doesn't contain any alcohol or paragons. On application, this feels soft and cool against the skin on my armpits and doesn't sting or cause any irritation, even when applied to recently shaved skin. I find it easy to spread evenly with a decent sized ball at the base. The deodorant does dry fairly quickly but I still try to wait before dressing to avoid any stickiness under my pits.
This has kept me feeling fresh and dry over the past few weeks and comes with a pleasant enough fragrance. I'm not convinced that this is an especially long lasting anti-perspirant, however and it isn't a product that I'm likely to pay full price for. I have found it to be gentle on clothing but I'd prefer it to be slightly stronger on sweaty smells, particularly after prolonged wear. This is not a badly performing deodorant but isn't amongst my favourites.

This is a product that I buy on a regular basis because it is one of the deodorants that I have found that actually works as it should.
It has a nice clean and fresh scent, that keeps me feeling and smelling fresh all day long. It doesn't mark clothes and whilst I can't comment on the 48hr non stop protection as I bath each evening, I can say that I don't ever need to reapply it through the day.
It's a roller ball type deodorant with a nice chunky ball on the bottom which moves and rolls freely without pinching at the skin which I think is something important when using this type of deodorant. I have in the past used some that tend to dry out a little and really nip and pinch the underarm skin which is quite sensitive so really hurts. This one however does not!
It stand on it's head, with the balls pointing downwards so it is always ready to be used and it also means you get every last drop of liquid from the bottle with no waste.
Unlike some Anti-Perspirants this one leaves no white marks on black or darker colour tops, leaves no yellowing marks on lights colours and white tops, and also doesn't cause coloured and bright tops to fade. The white marks on black clothes was something that really used to irritate me so this is something I am really glad of.
It's cheap too, I usually buy this in Poundland or Savers where it will cost just £1. It can retails for more in supermarkets and stores like Boots and Superdrug.
I would recommend this to anyone. It doesn't irritate me in any way, it also contains no alcohol so isn't drying to the skin and it smells great while keeping me feeling clean and fresh.
