“ Brand: Lynx / Deodorants / Type: Deodorant Stick / Suitable for: Body „
Last year I went shopping for some last minute holiday essentials and whilst in Poundland I picked up Lynx Dry Click Antiperspirant Stick. I thought it was a great price, £1 for the stick because Lynx Spray on Deodorant retails at £2.60 for 150ml and this concentrated stick was a real bargain. I have seen it at full price in stick form for around £2 so it is cheaper in general. Also, I thought it would be good for hand luggage being that it's not an aerosol or a liquid.
Lynx Dry Click Antiperspirant Stick comes in a silver coloured slightly sparkly plastic case, with a silver cog on the bottom which twists the antiperspirant stick much like a glue stick. Rather than being round it's a squared off oval shape designed to fit into the curve of the arm pit. It has a fully removable black lid.
My husband found it a great antiperspirant to carry around on holiday, in his hand luggage, on the side of the pool and so on. It takes up much less room than a spray can yet it provides the same antiperspirant strength, my hubby applied it in the morning and was still fresh in the afternoon (unless he went swimming and then he needed to reapply obviously). It has a nice, light yet masculine scent, not as pungent as a spray on but a nice smell nevertheless, very fresh.
My husband was also happy that the Lynx Dry Click Antiperspirant Stick didn't leave white marks on black clothing as some roll on and stick deodorants are prone to doing. It's not wet or creamy it just gives a nice light covering which keeps sweat at bay.
Since we've gotten back from holiday I've purchased a few more Lynx Dry Click Antiperspirant Stick from the pound shop, for a pound they're an absolute bargain being that they are a brand name and work so well. My husband keeps one in the car, one in his flight bag and so on. He still uses the aerosol as it can be used as a body spray too but for times when you can't use an aerosol, or don't have the room to practically carry one around then Lynx Dry Click Antiperspirant Stick is a brilliant alternative and I really do recommend it.
Five stars out of five from me (and my husband), it's a great long lasting product at full price, but if you can find it for £1 then grab two!
Background - First of all I have nod had that much experiance in using other types of deoderant other than the spray kind and one other type of roll on deoderant which was hugo boss. Therfore it is likely that I can't truely compaire this roll on deoderant to similar roll one deoderants. I therefore will concentrate on looking at this product in isolation
Smell- It smells pleasant enough nothing great to write home about. The smell is somewhat less usefull as unlike with spray deoderant people will be unlikely to smell it.
Staying power - staying power is fantastic. Although I don't sweat much I have found that applying this once a day is enough to keep myself dry and sweat free
Length of product - I can't overstate how long this product has lasted, one single stick using it every day has lasted months.
Skin - I felt no irritation what so ever using this product which is always a problem when I use spray deoderant of the same brand
Conclusion - Well worth a buy for the staying power alone. You will save some money and do your bit for the planet as well.
