Nivea Invisible Black & White Clear Spray
Advantages: Stops you smelling bad and doesn't leave white marks
Disadvantages: It doesn't stop you sweating
I am quite faithful to Dove Deodorants but, as they can be expensive, there are occasions where I will buy a different brand if it is on offer. Invisible for black and white by Nivea was one of these such purchases.
What does it do?
The product is an Anti-Perspirant Deodorant so it claims to prevent you from sweating and to stop any unpleasant odours for 48 hours. It also promises to protect your clothing from getting any yellow stains or white marks on them which products of this type can sometimes cause.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be held around 15cm from armpit and them you push down on the top to dispense the spray. You are advised to wait for the product to completely dry before dressing.
Packaging and Price
The packaging is quite pretty and it comes in a bottle that is half white and half black with some pink detailing. The dispenser is a baby pink colour and the bottle has quite a lot of additional information and facts about the product on it.
The product cost me around £2.50 for a 250ml bottle but the price will vary greatly depending on where you purchase it from. It is available from department stores like Boots, many supermarkets and also from a variety of online websites.
The aroma is described on the bottle as being an Uplifting clear fragrance with elegant floral notes. To me, it actually smells quite masculine and it is more like something I would expect from a men's deodorant. Despite this, it is refreshing and it smells really clean. It is quite musky but I wouldn't really describe this product as being floral at all.
The product does mask any bad smells all day long so you don't need to panic about smelling unpleasant when you are wearing the product. I don't know whether the results would last the full 48 hours as promised by Nivea but then I wouldn't ever go that long without washing so I wouldn't know! The actual fragrance of the product is long lasting and I can still smell it when I am undressing at night.
I sweat quite a lot and I wouldn't expect any widely available product to stop me completely but I don't think this stops me at all. It doesn't even manage to prevent me sweating for even the first hour after application so I would say this product fails in this department.
Most of the clothes that I wear are black and I often dress quickly after applying this product because I'm always in a rush. It never leaves any white marks on my jumpers or t-shirts so it passes this test. I haven't tried wearing this when I wear white so I can't comment on its performance there.
The product contains no alcohol or colorants and it has been dermatologically tested. It promises to be gentle and I have used the product straight after shaving my armpits and this doesn't sting or irritate my skin. It has never caused my skin to become itchy or dry either.
The product works well to mask any bad smells and it also stops you from getting any whites marks on your black clothes. It doesn't get any points from me in the Anti-Perspirant department so I won't be buying this again but for those who aren't such sweaty Bettys as me, this may work a bit better.
Summary: A deodorant which protects your clothes but which doesn't stop you sweating
