Advantages: lovely fragrances, good packaging design, different forms to suit everyone
Disadvantages: still does not provide full dryness for me
Deodorant is a bit of a mind field for me, I am yet to find one that I would be loyal to but this is more down to me than the deodorants. I do suffer from fairly heavy sweating especially during the summer months and will use a specialist deodorant then but in the winter I can get away with just an ordinary deodorant. Recently whilst shopping in Asda I remembered that I had begun to run low of deodorant so headed to the toiletry isle to see if I could find one that I would like. This is when I spotted the Palmolive Soft and Gentle range of deodorants on a special offer and decided to give one a try.
The Palmolive Soft and Gentle range of deodorants come in roll on, spray and stick form. This is the same as most deodorant brands and personally I tend to prefer the rolls on as I find them easier to apply where you need them and less likely to mark clothing.
I purchased a 50ml roll on in the soft jasmine and coco milk fragrance. Admittedly the main reason I chose this fragrance over the others was the pink flowers on the front of the bottle, I tend to be drawn to anything pink in colour. I paid just £0.87 for the roll on which I thought was great value and also thought if it was not suitable then I would not have lost much. You can also purchase the Palmolive Soft and Gentle range of deodorants in other large supermarkets, Wilkinson's, Boots, Superdrug and Pharmacy's.
You can also purchase the Palmolive range in the following other fragrances:
- Wild Rose & Vanilla
- Lavender & Patchouli
- Almond Milk & Honeysuckle
- Passion Flower & Black Orchid
I was impressed with the design of the bottle as it shaped to allow you to grip it easily making application very easy. The roller ball is also a good size and moves freely and distributes the deodorant smoothly without leaving blobs as I have found with some brands I have used.
One of the best things I found about this deodorant was the fragrance it is quite sweet and floral but not too overpowering. I noticed that in evening when I get undressed at the end of the day I could still smell the lovely fragrance which impressed me.
As far as performance goes then so far I have again been impressed, the deodorant dries fairly quickly after application which means I do not need to stand for 5 minutes with my arms flapping in the morning before I can get dressed. My under arms have also remained rather dry too which is a miracle for me as even on some colder days it only takes a trip on a warm bus for me to get a little damp under there. Now whether this deodorant would stand the test of a hot day for me is unlikely as most don't but as I said I do use a specialist deodorant to control my sweating in the summer but would certainly buy this to use for the lovely fragrance and am sure that it would work well for anyone who does sweat a normal amount. Also I have quite sensitive skin and have not experienced any irritation from using this deodorant even after shaving. Futhermore this deodrant did not leave any staining on my clothing which is one thing that really bugs me about some deodorants.
Overall I have been very impressed with this Palmolive soft and gentle deodorant and will certainly be exploring the other fragrances in the range.
Summary: a lovely range of fragranced deodorants at a great price
