Nivea pure invisible deodorant
I usually use a roll on anti- perspirant deodorant and just occasionally use a spray. My favourite spray is Vaseline but, I only buy this when I see it on offer and then I stock up. However, a few weeks back, I was running short of my usual Vaseline spray d anti-perspirant deodorant, and so when I saw Nivea deodorants on offer in Sainsbury's I thought I'd give this a try.
There were several types of Nivea spray deodorants on offer on the shelf and I decided to choose the 'Pure Invisible' as the can stated no white marks. Because the weather was nice and I had started to wear my summer vest tops, which I have in assorted colours, some dark, I thought this would be the wisest choice.
I must say that I usually love Nivea products but after trying this several times, I think this is not a good buy from my own perspective.
I like the smell of it and I believe it works well as an anti- perspirant, keeping me both dry, and I hope, odour free but as to the 'no white marks' bit-No way!
I didn't actually keep it on for a prolonged period of time to do the twenty four hour test but it was left on for several hours, as I was out for the day. I believe it worked adequately; in terms of freshness and dryness, keeping my underarms dry and feeling fresh. I don't think I could keep any deodorant on for twenty four hours without washing. But, then again, I suppose this could be a way of obtaining plenty of personal space though!
On my first use of Nivea Pure I applied it after showering and it actually took my breath away. It really is the type of deodorant that has that dry powdery aroma which immediately seems to get onto ones throat and can be tasted. The smell is quite pleasant actually but it's too catching; I certainly wouldn't recommend it for asthma sufferers. I have to spray and then run away to breathe in fresh air. Vaseline doesn't have this effect at all, or not in my case, at least.
Once the anti-perspirant was dry under my arm pits I put on a black vest top. Now, I'm always careful when I put tops on, trying my best to only let the inside of the top/dress touch my skin. I did this successfully only, after a few minutes, to catch sight in the mirror of the white marks under the arms of my top. These were obtained since dressing and had come from my under arms and onto the top. I used a clothes brush in an attempt to remove the marks which didn't come off very well so I then tried a bath towel which still didn't work well, so I had to change out of this top and wear a white top instead.
I was recently speaking to my eldest daughter about this deodorant leaving white marks which are far worse than with deodorants that I usually use which don't make this claim. She said that she hadn't yet found anything that claimed this and actually lived up to it. She also thought the deodorants which take your breath away are usually the worst as they seem to be particularly powdery and this is what marks the clothes.
I haven't used this anti perspirant up yet as I don't like it. Although the aroma is quite pleasant, in my opinion, it is also far too strong and overpowering. Also, if wearing perfume I think the deodorant smell will be competing with this and could quite possibly win. I like a more subtle fragrance in my deodorant if it has any fragrance.
Still, if you apply this in a well-ventilated area, and aren't intending to use perfume, then you might like it; it should keep you odour free, well from body odours, that is, and it works as well at keeping arm pits dry as any similar product. I don't think it works as well as the superior Mitchum brand but then Mitchum is an excellent brand, suiting many who sweat fairly heavily, at times.
I bought Nivea Pure from Sainsbury's and paid £1.01 instead of the usual price of £2.03. This was for a 100g/150 ml sized spray.
