Garnier Mineral Ultra Dry Roll On

Garnier Mineral Ultra Dry Roll On
Advantages: Value for money, fresh smell, long lasting fragrance and protection
Disadvantages: None in my opinion
Being a stickler for trying different deodorants rather than simply buying the same one every time, when I saw this deodorant on offer in my local Wilkinsons I was enthusiastic to give it a go. I have in the past used a variety of products from Garnier including hair colour and moisturiser but had never bought anything from their deodorant range. I have now been using my new found purchase for around a month and have been very pleased with the results.
This deodorant comes in two options those being a spray deodorant and a roll on, however being that I like to use a roll on better than a spray I opted for this option. The product is simply packaged in a white case with a screw top green lid. Again the green colouring is used on the label which tells you that this is deodorant is part of the 'Mineral' range by Garnier. The bottle design for this product is slightly different to the standard and I must admit that this is what drew me to it in the first place. The bottle stands on its head as oppose to being upright and has a slightly rounded shape which fits comfortably into the ball of my hand. To sample the fragrance of the deodorant I found the smell to be a lovely clean and slightly citrus fragrance, difficult to describe but nevertheless a very fresh smell which was not overpowering.
Garnier claim that this deodorant gives 48 hours protection against sweat, gives a feeling of all day freshness and contains no alcohol.
Price and Availability
I bought a bottle of this deodorant from Wilkinsons and paid around £1 for it. However I have seen it for a similar price in a number of supermarkets,
Being that I have now been wearing this deodorant for around a month I have put it through a number of daily tasks which have tested how good it really is. I will therefore be marking this deodorant on sweat protection, fragrance longevity and all day freshness.
1. Sweat Protection
OK, so I must admit that I am not the biggest sweat producer, being that my job does require me to sit behind a desk for the majority of the day. However in this lovely sunny weather I have been exercising on my lunch break and the warm walks do cause me to start perspiring. This deodorant does not completely stop my underarms producing sweat however it does mean that any dampness under my arms smells fresh and clean therefore protecting me for the remainder of the afternoon at work. As I have never gone unwashed for less than 16 hours, I am unable to comment on the 48 hour claim however can testify to this deodorant being good enough to last an entire day without needing reapplication.
2. Fragrance Longevity
I do love the smell of this deodorant as it is fresh and slightly floral at the same time and a real compliment to my perfume. This scent goes on in the morning and rubs into the underarms on my clothing meaning that when I raise my arms I get a delightful whiff of fragrance during the day. Plus I put this deodorant on at 6 o'clock this morning and it still smells as nice now as it did then so I am pretty impressed.
3. All Day Freshness
This point is probably reiterated in my comments on fragrance longevity; however I do feel and smell fresh throughout the day and can therefore testify to this deodorant really giving me all day freshness.
Overall this is a brilliant little deodorant, the bottle being design being nifty, the fragrance being a real pleasure and the freshness claims being completely justified.
As a result I do recommend this product as a great value little buy and would therefore recommend it. Based on my comments above this deodorant scores a great five stars from me.
