“ Brand: Nivea / Type: Roll-on / Suitable for: Body „
I've always been a roll on deodorant man; I've never really had much luck with spray ons, as for me they don't give you as much protection and they are much worse for the environment. For over two years now, I've been using Nivea for men roll ons, and have recently made the switch to the fragrance 'aqua cool.'
First of all, the smell is everything you want from a roll on deodorant. Fresh, clean, and masculine, but not over bearing. I prefer it to the other roll on fragrances they offer. It certainly doesn't overpower your cologne like a lot of others out there. The bottle is stylish and fits perfectly in a modest sized wash bag. It dries quickly (just seconds really) and it has never let me down in terms of protection.
I never go 24 hours without a shower, so I've always found deodorants that claim to protect you for 24 hours a bit irrelevant. However, on a recent flight to Perth via Dubai, I realised there are times when you will go a day without a shower and thus be reliant on a good quality deodorant to see you through. I'm pleased to say that my Nivea roll on passed with flying colours. Not once did I feel that it needed to be topped up - I was cool and fresh throughout my journey.
Price wise, its very reasonable at £2.99 - quite often at my local supermarket it will be part of a 2 for £5 deal. It lasts me around a month when used fairly generously. A five star product for me!
I do like Nivea products, as they are good quality at good prices. I like the smell of the Nivea for Men range as I find them masculine and fresh and not at all womanly or feminine. I like to use a spray deodorant normally but of late I have switched to a roll on. The one I am using is the Nivea for Men roll on deodorant which comes in a classy looking glass bottle. This particular roll on deodorant is called Aqua Cool and it is designed to work effectively for up to 24 hours. It cost sme 1.99 a bottle.
I can vouch for the fact that this roll on does what it says on the tin. I cycle to work and back most days now and this is strong enough to keep me fresh and dry during my eight-mile cycle to work. I get a shower in the toilet block once I get there and apply some more and it keeps me feeling fresh and dry for the whole of the day.
The smell is butch and manly and quite strong but I love it. It doesn't clash with my aftershave though and I actually think the smell of the deodorant compliments the smell of my aftershave as the two work well together. The deodorant is simple and easy to use - just like any other roll on. Take the top off, tip the bottle and roll under the armpit.
I do find it can take a little long to dry, that it probably the only thing that lets this deodorant down. It keeps my underarm hair feeling tacky and looking wet for quite a while after I have rolled it on and I find I have to walk around with my arms stretched out to the side for a while after I have applied it, which can be a bit of a problem when I am at work and I have just had my shower and I am making my way down the corridor back to the office.
It works well though and once it has actually dried it keeps me perspiration and odour free for the whole day long. It is a powerful deodorant and it also lasts me for ages even though I use it two time a day during Mondays to Fridays.
Overall, I am pleased with this Nivea for men and I recommend it.
I bought this roll on deodorant for around £2.00 buy-one-get-one-free at Tesco a few months ago. I normally use a spray deodorant but due to the summer now arriving I wanted to see if roll-on would do a better job at keeping me dry.
The bottle is a very attractive blue glass bottle which promises to last 24h. The deodorant/anti-perspirant has a very masculine scent which seems to last for most of the day. So far I have been very impressed and I have definitely noticed that it seems to be working as promised.
Obviously I have not carried out any extensive testing into whether the deodorant does actually last 24h. For me it doesn't seem to be a great problem anyway as I tend to top up in the evening if I am going out somewhere anyway.
Application is very simple using the attached roll-on ball and the product seems to dry quite quickly especially in comparison with major competitors.
~ Verdict ~
On my last trip to Tesco I couldn't see this product any longer. I am not sure if they were simply out-of-stock or whether this product has now been discontinued. Nivea has released a similar product called 'Cool Kick' however, which promises 48h protection instead of 24h - This can only be positive!
If you do find this product I would definitely recommend it. It is without doubt one of these products that does exactly what it says on the tin.
I purchased this product as it was on offer at tesco. I usually go for the spray type deodrants but this sounded as though it was good.
It comes in its very round short, glass bottle. Many of the 'roll ons' usually have plastic, boring bottles. This appealed to me. It comes as a 50ml bottle, this lasted me around 2-3 weeks which is very good for the price i paid for it. The colour of the bottle represents the the 'aqua cool' name of the deodrant. The lid is a screw top and very easy to screw on and off.
The smell of the deodrant itself is very pleasing and gives the scent of a very chilled and laid back feeling. This also links with the 'aqua cool' colour of the bottle.
The reliability of the deodrant was very good. Using in the morning and lasting all day and keeping me refreshed. It does actually make you feel 'aqua cool'!
A great product by nivea and should give it a try!
When shopping in Tesco the other day, I noticed that the Nivea Deodrant for men was on offer for £1.00, and as my poor partner only get whatever deodrant is on offer, I thought he could give this a bash.
I do have to say, this review is from my partners point of view, as I did not give the deodorant a try as it does have quite a manly smell (and I did not want to confuse issues).
The Nivea deodorant comes in a 50ml blue glass bottle with a blue screw on/off lid (easy to open) which is also a rounded shape. On the front of the bottle it has Nivea for Men - Cool Kick 24h - Kick of freshness - cool care formula 50ml. On the back of the bottle it has 50ml and the bar code - so not much information at all (no ingredients etc). The deodorant usually costs £2.29 from Tesco but prices may vary on where buying this product from (available in chemists and supermarkets).
On unscrewing the lid you have the ball for the application of the deodorant and it smells really nice (a very manly smell) - I am afraid I cannot tell you the smell of what it is like as I am useless with smells.
Application of the deodorant is very easy and my the ball rolls smoothly giving a nice even application of the deodorant under the arm. My partner says that the deodorant lasts really well and the smell lasts for most of the day - at least 6 hours (he is a landscape gardener - so quite physical work). My partner did say the deodorant did do the job and sweating under his arms was minimum.
Now when my partner gets home the first thing he does is have a shower and then applies the deodrant again, so I am not sure if the effects of this deodorant would last from say 8.00am - 8.00pm. On the weekends he did say as he is not doing as physical work the effects did last longer but again he has a shower around 6.30pm.
My partner has asked me to buy the deodorant again - so I guess this is a good sign. The only problem he said he found with the deodorant is that because of the rounded lid you could not stand it up to get all the liquid out and up to the top where the ball is, so you end up with a very small amount left in the bottle.
I would buy this again for my partner , but only if on offer as £2.29 for a deodorant is quite alot, but then I do only buy the stuff if on offer and bulk buy and put up to store (I am a bit tight).
Anyway to sum it up I think I will give this 4 stars as the only thing that makes it lose a star is the normal price and the fact that you still get that tiny bit left in the bottom of the bottle.
For invigorating freshness /
