Mitchum Unfragranced Roll-on Deodorant
Advantages: VERY EFFECTIVE
Disadvantages: A BIT HARSH ON SENSITIVE SKIN
When it comes to using an Anti-perspirant deodorant, I personally prefer using one that is a roll-on design rather than a spray, mainly due to the problem of white staining left behind after application from many (though not all) spray anti-perspirants.
To be fair though, I have on occasion had a problem with staining when using a roll-on too, although I find it is much more commonplace with a spray.
That said, the one big advantage that I find a spray has over a roll-on is that it is dry immediately. No need to flap my arms about wildly doing a one-woman chicken type dance routine is a huge benefit for me.
The mitchum '48hour protection' roll-on anti- perspirant deodorant is one that I bought a couple of months back, from my local 'Savers' discount store. I think it cost around a pound from memory which is I thought was quite reasonable value, given the size of the roll-on... it is not one of those 'mini' styles, and is a generous 100ml in size.
I will point out before I go any further that the packaging is slightly different to the picture shown on the Dooyoo page, in that the green colour of the plastic dispenser is a lighter colour than that shown. It also has slightly different wording, but apart from that it is the same item! I think the 'Mitchum' brand had a bit of a re-vamp recently, which might explain the new look to the products.
Also, i'm a bit intruiged as to why the description of this product says it is a roll-on for men! I have seen this roll-on amongst all sorts of flowery-scented offerings both in supermarkets and drugstores so I think there is a bit of confusion somewhere along the line. That said though, as this particular product is unperfumed, i suppose it COULD be classed as 'unisex' perhaps?!
Anyway, back to the review...
Having very sensitive skin on my underarms, I usually opt for a fragrance free anti-perspirant, and was happy to note that this product fell into this category. Given the problem mentioned earlier in my review regarding white staining, I was also happy to note that among the claims on the packaging for the Mitchum roll-on, was the statement 'Minimises White Marks'.
That coupled with the '48 hour protection' in the name of the product were the main reasons that I chose this brand of deodorant over any other and I was keen to find out if these claims were justified.
Firstly, let me tell you about the effectiveness of the antiperspirant. I find that it keeps my underarm area very dry indeed and have found it to be much more effective than my usual brand of roll-on. I did find that the effects lasted at LEAST 24 hours every time I used it - a huge benefit over my usual brand, which usually wears off around evening time.
In regards to the 'unperfumed' claims, I can confirm that these are genuine claims and I caught no whiff of any fragrance from the roll-on whilst I was wearing it, another plus point for me.
The Mitchum roll-on was, however not quite as sensitive as I would have liked, although to be fair the packaging does not claim that this product is one designed for use on sensitive skin. I generally found it to be unnoticeable for the most part, until I attempted to apply it directly after shaving my underarm area. This happened a couple of times, and I found that the deodorant seemed to irritate my skin and it felt quite itchy. After washing it off, there weren't any other side-effects and I carried on using it as normal the following day with no problems.
In terms of the 'Minimises white marks' claims on the packaging I can confirm that on only one occasion was there any evidence of the faintest hint of a white stain that was left behind on my black top. One occasion over the course of a few months is still an improvement to the effectiveness of my usual brand in terms of staining.
All in all, I find this to be an absolute winner! I am truly converted from my supermarket-own brand to this offering from Mitchum. Not only does it work effectively, but it works SO effectively that I have been known to be able to skip a day from using it, and use just a light spray of body spray in place of an anti-perspirant. This of course means that the Mitchum roll-on should last longer than my usual one, which is even better value from this product and I will definitely be buying it again.
This gets top marks from me - the claims are genuine and I am very happy overall with the effectiveness and quality of the product! :-D
Summary: FIVE STARS FOR THIS GENUINE PRODUCT!
