Mum Deodorant Roll On Fresh Pink
Disadvantages: none for me
Until recently I've been using Sanex roll on but lately I've found it doesn't dry very well, it used to be great but I suspect they've altered the ingredients and now it tends to stay sticky all day so I decided to go for a change. I've also got a problem with my skin not agreeing with lots of anti-perspirants so for me to choose a new one can be a nightmare that takes months of trial and error until I find one I like that likes me back!
Faced with a shelf of deodorants in the supermarket I was mentally ticking off the ones I'd already had a "skin dispute" with when I noticed the Mum roll ons. Mum brings back fond memories for me because my Mum used to always use it and I can remember it from way back in the 70s. £1.35 didn't seem too bad so I popped a Fresh Pink one in my trolley.
The Fresh Pink scent is a very floral scent, kind of like flowers mixed with baby powder if that makes sense. It immediately sent me hurtling back to the 70s as it hasn't changed one bit! There is also an unperfumed one and an aloe one but I didn't fancy those on this occasion.
The roll on is in a glass container unusually for these days, it's a taller and slimmer bottle than alot of the other roll ons which fits nicely in your hand. The roller ball is actually smaller than the one I'm used to but works very well. Mum roll on is alcohol free and is of course an anti-perspirant not just a deodorant so it should keep you dry as well as smelling fresh.
So to the point, how did it do? It went on nicely and dried quite quickly, I think it was dry within just a few minutes as you'd expect from a roll on and it dries to a powdery feeling. I found the first day it performed brilliantly and I was still fresh and dry at the end of the day. The packaging claims it will last 24 hours but I always wash my anti-perspirant off at the end of the day anyway so I can't confirm this.
The second day I did alot of execise and hoped it would stand up to that test and it did. I found at the end of the exercises I was just as fresh and dry as I had been at the start. So far I've had no irritation from this roll on either which is good but that could strike me at any point because I've had alot of problems with various brands in the past. For now though this working very well and suits me fine.
Overall I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a nice scent, dry underarms and an effective product. I'm really pleased with it and give it the full 5 star rating.
Summary: Very effective and highly recommended
