Advantages: Light, fresh smell
Disadvantages: Doesn't work quite so well against heavy sweat.
This is an underarm deodorant by Nivea that does well on many levels.
It comes in a transparent glass bottle which means the amount left is visible.
I paid less than a pound for this product in Home Bargains and at that cheap price it really has been value for money.
The roll-on ball moves well which is not the experience I've had with other products with which I've had to use my finger to get the ball rolling again.
Just twist off the lid white (this bit is plastic) and roll the bottle under your dry armpits. There are no artificial colours in this and no alcohol.
Upon application the skin feels cool but also a bit wet. I don't want to risk staining on my clothes so I always apply a minute, or two, before I put my top on. After this initial application the underarms feel dry. A couple of times I've been in too much of a hurry to wait and found no staining of my clothes. I continue to be careful out of habit but I think it does not show up on clothes.
I exercise hard and I'm afraid I still get sweat patches under the arms but they are not as bad as when I've used most other products. However, it does keep me totally dry in ordinary day to day situations. I never smell bad with Nivea not even during or after exercise, though I cannot claim that it remains completely fresh under the armpits when working out .The deodorant has a fresh and clean scent though it is very mild and unobtrusive. It does not cause any problems on my, sometimes, sensitive skin but do not apply to broken or sore skin.
This product has longevity. I've used this 50ml bottle daily for months. I have only needed to use it once a day unless I have an extra shower or bath in which case I use again afterwards. It is meant to last twenty-four hours but I certainly need to put it on afresh the next day so I don't feel it really lasts twenty-four hours.
I have confidence in this product but only under non-stressful situations. I have a couple of other brands that I trust just that tiny bit more. If you sweat heavily you might need something stronger.
I also find the bottle too heavy to carry in my handbag. It stays at home and means I need a lighter product to take out with me. In one respect I liked that it's in a glass bottle because I thought I could recycle it but with the ball on the top I'm not so sure it's possible. For all these reasons I give this good Nivea product four stars as for me it's not quite perfect.
Summary: Nice product for day to day use.
