No sweat - an anti-perpirant that claims to be strong - and it is!

Advantages: it works and will save you worry about sweat marks and stinky body odour
Disadvantages: the packaging, the stigma of having to buy a super strong deodorant, its heavy on your little pores
I tend to sell myself well on these reviews, a reluctant housekeeper with hairy legs and now I am going to admit to the world I am also sweaty. Gladly this isn't a dating site! Thanks to Mitchum though, I am able to keep perspiration under control.
----- What is it? ----
Mitchum is an Anti-Perspirant and deodorant that claims to offer strength and protection that lasts 48 hours whilst minimising white marks. Mitchum's anti-perpspirant comes in separate ranges for men and women. You can choose between a roll on or an aerosol and you can choose from a choice of fragrances. I am currently using Mitchum advanced control in Shower fresh roll on. So my review will focus on this particularly product.
---- What does it look like and how much will it cost me? -----
The packaging for Mitchum is old fashioned and clinical. Marketing is not their strong suit. Although it is a little improved in appearance than it used to be. The roll on is a simple green bottle with a screw on cap. The bottle displays the name Mitchum in white on the front. The roller ball is clear and a good size.
The mitchum roll on I am using cost me £2.75 for 100ml. The aerosol is a little more expensive at £2.85. This is roughly a £1.00 more expensive than other antiperspirants on the market but this one actually works so I am happy to pay the premium.
- What is it like to use? -
I started using Mitchum anti-perspirant when I was a teenager. Like many teenagers I wanted to be trendy and Mitchum is not trendy. It does not have fancy marketing campaigns that particularly appeal to young women. I admit being a young girl I was pretty embarrassed to take this to the counter. First of all I felt it was saying I am not trendy and I sweat so much I need to by ultra strong fuddy duddy roll on. This was not awesome. Gladly the performance of this product is worth it. Now that I am old I no longer get embarrassed but, I am still sometimes swayed by the marketing of trendy brands buy them and find they are useless.
Mitchum is strong and lasts all day. As I apply Mitchum every day and tend to wash it off at the end of the day in the shower I can't vouch for whether one application lasts a whole 48 hours but it certainly lasts me the whole day through so I am happy with that. The roller does not dry out which is a plus point as you are not dragging a harsh dry ball over your sensitive little arm pits.
The smell of the shower fresh does actually smell shower fresh - it smells like soap. The roll on is easy to apply. It is wet and takes a while to dry. I would suggest you go for the shower fresh or fragrance free options and avoid powder fresh. Powder fresh smells exactly like that - Powder. Not particularly pleasant in my view.
I have not noticed any white marks left by this deodorant although, I only use the roll on so cant vouch for the aerosol.
The product stops sweat dead I no longer get sweaty marks on my clothing and smell fresh all day.
The only down side about this deodorant is that because it is strong and thick it is heavy on your skin and may clog up your pores. However, overall I would rather have clogged pores than suffer the anxiety sweaty pits can cause.
I will continue to buy Mitchum and save myself the disappointment of fancy marketed products. Give it a go if you are a sweaty bod like me :)
Summary: it works - no sweat
