~~Nivea dry confidence roll on deodorant~~
I tend to swap my deodorants quite frequently I normally go for the ones on offer as we buy toiletries in bulk from Boots as we live in Cyprus it works out cheaper for us to buy in bulk and have it shipped over. I therefore do not really stick with one deodorant unless it is particularly good. I had seen that this specific deodorant was on offer at the time of purchase so I decided to try it, I didn't have any previous knowledge of the product so it was a pretty much blind purchase, however I was happy with the outcome and will definitely be purchasing this product in the future regardless of whether it is on offer or not.
The bottle of the roll on is made out of quite thick glass; I think this is the only disadvantage of the product as it is significantly heavier than a roll on of the same size that has a plastic container. I wouldn't want to carry this round in my hand bag as it is already full to the brim and with the glass I would be worried of dropping my bag and the bottle breaking and damaging the more expensive products in my handbag like my phone or kindle. The bottle also has a white lid which houses the typical roll on dispenser. There is a sticker on the lid which brags of its 48 hour protection. I am not too sure on this as personally I wouldn't go 48 hours without showering and I don't know who would unless they were camping or somewhere without access to running water. The product does last me all day and I have found that it is the only deodorant I have tried that has lasted all day without having to be reapplied frequently. Therefore, you wouldn't really have to carry this product around during the day unless say you were off to the gym and you were going to shower and refresh after training. The bottle also contains a label on the front which has the typical Nivea branding and then the product name and a brief description again highlighting the 48hour long protection and that it contains minerals and 0% alcohol. The bottle contains 50ml of product and I would say that with daily use it would last approximately a month, failing that the product has a 12 month expiry once opened.
The product should be used after bathing/showering and you only need to use one roll on each armpit. The product dries extremely fast and therefore does not leave those unsightly white marks on clothing. The scent of the product is subtle and smells slightly soapy it is pleasant and just gives off the just washed sort of vibe. The scent doesn't last for particularly long but the protection of the product does last for a long period of time. I would therefore recommend wearing perfume or a body spray if you would like to have the extra scent as this product does not really deliver on that aspect. However, I find that a good thing as it does not detract from the smell of my perfume as there is nothing worse than smelling like you've rolled in a breakage at the local perfume store and you can smell a variety of products on one person, to me it is like they are trying too hard to try and mask a nasty smell!
Overall, I would say this is a brilliant product and I will definitely be purchasing it in the near future. This specific product can be purchased from many well-known high street retailers and supermarkets. The prices as of writing are as followed (prices accurate on day of writing 13/09/12):

Summary: A product that is worth trying, one star removed because of the packaging
