I will admit I originally wasn't a big fan of Right Guard, although what had probably turned me off of it were the days back in high school, of which that one kid, ya know the one who always uses at least half a can of deodorant after a good ol' sports lesson well that kid happened to use Right Guard, the smell was very overpowering and was not a pleasant smell at all.
However years down the line I have actually given Right Guard a try after my recovery, particularly the Fresh variety. I will admit the scent is still not something which I find particularly appealing, although it does seem to slowly become a nicer more durable smell throughout the day, but still not mighty fine smelling.
There are all of these brands of deodorant out there who say 48 hours protection here, 72 hours protection there, Blah-blah. But in most cases do not deliver, with Right Guard though this does actually provide a mighty fine protection from perspiration. Just to give everyone a rough idea, I've applied Right Guard in the morning and when I've taken a shower later that night I could still smell whiffs of the deodorant on my pits after drying off and climbing into bed.
I do honestly believe that Right Guard have a good product, it's just not really for me. It does essentially do what it says on the can, but the main thing which puts me off is the scent. Of course if you don't like the smell of something you don't really want it, this smell just seems like something more for the fitness type of guy/girl who this would be much more useful too and suited to.
I personally though want to be protected AND smell good at the same time and I can easily do that for less than £2.83 which is very expensive considering the fact that there are many brands out there who offer the same sort of quality for half the price.
I use right guard 3d and sure or whatever gifts I have been bought as Antiperspirant Deodorant. I am always looking out for what is on sale or offer and will swap between sure and right guard as I know they both work.
This 3d protection works on 3 levels
1. Fights perspiration.
2. Prevents odour.
3. Time-released freshness.
I have had a can of this for several months and it is now more or less empty, I have a few other cans of other deodorants on standby and I have been looking for a good one on sale but had no luck !
This antiperspirant is very reliable, if a little boring. It doesn't gunge up at the nozzle to much as my one is almost finished and there is just some white powdery bits there. When you use it there is some fragrance not enough to be overpowering which is what I like. It is also effective if you spray enough on.
I won't list all the chemicals, as the main point is there is no alchohol in it so it does not feel to damaging. It has Propane and Butane though so I wouldn't get it in your mouth or eyes !
From Tesco it cost £2 when it is on offer you may get a two for one / 3 for 2 / or money off.
There are newer versions out since that picture above which are part of the 3d range which have 30 % more protection and are the Energy Zone and Total protection models.
I like this Deodorant and I would buy it again, just for using as a practical or functional item, it is not inspirational in any way, then it is only a Deodorant and not a work of art.
Although I generally use Lynx products to make myself smell as wonderful as I do, I have found that the Right Guard antiperspirant is far superior to Lynx's and after discovering it a couple of years ago, has now became the only brand of antiperspirant I buy.
The 3D Fresh antiperspirant comes in a large, tall metal with a standard aerosol spray mechanism and plastic cap on top. The container really is very minimalistic and I do not really think a great deal of effort has been put into making this stand out from other similar products on the market. Something which I have noticed however is that the spray mechanism makes the antiperspirant disperse at an upwards angle and if you are used to many of the other brands whose dispersion is forwards, you may end up spraying your biceps accidentally for a couple of days by mistake - it really isn't much of an issue, just something to get used to.
The fragrance, once again, is pretty minimalistic and I do not think that this is the main focus of the product. It is a fairly subtle smell in comparison to other antiperspirants and I cannot really smell it after it has been applied. The bottle describes it as fresh and during spraying, when you can actually smell it properly, I would generally agree, it is just the standard "Fresh" scent that you would associate with the wealth of products also using this description.
The main selling point of this product to me, and the reason I buy this product over all others is the "protection". This is the one product I have actually found that really does prevent sweating and those embarrassing sweat patches which are all too well known to us who wear shirts. Even on a summers day when pushed to its limits, Right Guard will work fantastically well and keep the area nice and dry from morning to night thanks to a claimed 24-hour protection!
At around £2.50 for a can which also comes on offer in supermarkets often, I would recommend this to absolutely anybody!
I have recently switched to Right Guard from Sure do to a deal in Tesco...I have been using the spray for around 2 months and have been very happy with the results. I am not fussed about the smell, but if a spray does have one I obviously want it to be a nice one, which this is. I use this spray to keep seating at bay during the day and in the evening when i'm out.
I use the 250ml cans that are between £1.50 and £2.50 depending on the constant cycle of deals the supermarkets have. It is an anti-persperint therefor is designed not only to provide instant odour relief but also to give you long lasting protection...a claim of 24 Hours.
I have been happy with this spray, it smells nice and it has a decent sized can that for me lasts over a month. If I apply in the morning and then do nothing particularly active during the day it will happily last 24 hours, but if it is hot or i am active i feel a second application is required in the afternoon, and regardless of these I will always re-apply before going out of an evening, more from habit that anything else. So the 24Hr claim is partly true.
To use the product you simply take off the lid, which fits tightly, and push on the large button on the top. It is a well made mechanism and in the 3 cans i've had I have never experienced any sort of breakage. There is no locking mechanism due to the lid.
As I said I used to use Sure but since the change I have stuck with Right Guard sprays. It works brilliantly as an anti-perspint and it also smells really good, this comes recommended by me.
I personally struggle with my perspiration, i seem to sweat no matter the weather, it can be in the negatives in the middle of winter and for some oddity my body still wishes to pour with sweat. I tried many deodorizers in my attempt to find something that was effective and smelled nice. After a long time of trying various deodorants i purchased some right guard from a local super market as it caught my eye when it was on an offer and tried it the next day. I found after only a couple of hours that this deodorant was outperforming the others i'd tried and could sense it was going to be in my future purchase list especially as the drawbacks were minimal. The only negatives that i had with the right guard deodorant is that it was very bad with creating white marks, it was definately something that you would not want to spray while having a top on. Another thing is this specific one, the "Fresh" one made you smell like a car air freshener, while not an offensive smell it's not the most interesting of fragrances that you may want to wear so something like the "Sport" one has a much more appealing scent.
In conclusion if you're looking for a deodorizing aeorosal that is long lasting and also effective then this is a good choice however it is not the nicest smelling of sprays so maybe using some aftershave or body spray in conjunction would be a good idea.
Good shape bottle
Doesn't smell great
I have been using Right Guard 3D Antiperspirant Deodorant for some time now and I am very pleased with it. I use an Antiperspirant every day to help stop me perspiring funnily enough and also more importantly to keep bad body odor at bay. This product does a great job and works well for me.
I am pretty active person who would go to the gym a few times a week and play 5-a-side football so I give my deodorant a good work out. Even when I do sweat I find that the Antiperspirant does a good job at keeping bad smells to a minimum.
I picked this deodorant as they manufacturer claimed that it would help fight perspiration, prevent odor and Keeps working 24 hours a day for maximum confidence. So it seemed to tick all the boxes and for around £2.50 for a 250ml can this seemed like it was worth a try.
On the whole the deodorant has lived up to my expectations. A can seems to last me around 6 weeks when applying it once and occasionally twice per day. One claim I don't agree with is that it 'keeps working 24 hours a day'. I find that on a hot or clammy day that I need to re-apply the mid afternoon to avoid bad body odors occurring.
This antiperspirant is a spray on aerosol and to apply you simply use the large button on the top of the can and push down firmly. The fragrance is quite subtle and not over powering. This is also an important factor for me as I like to use an antiperspirant to keep me dry and fresh and then use an aftershave. I don't want my antiperspirant to mask or over power the smell of my aftershave.
This is a good product in my opinion and works fairly well for me. I would recommend giving it a try.
About Right Guard:
It is a product of The Gillette Company and was first introduced in the 1960s as a aerosol antiperspirant. It is now the second largest brand in the men deodorant section and also comes in a shower gel as well.
Why I use it:
As a woman I always find men's deodorant gives you a lot better protection than women's and it wasn't until I borrowed some of my male friends Right Guard one day that I found it gave considerable good protection from the hot and stuffy building I work in, it was then I decided that I would start buying myself and have been purchasing it ever since.
Right Guard is very reasonably priced at about £1.25 for a 250ml can so it is a pretty good buy as it won't really stretch your purse strings and it proves with this product that sometimes you don't just "get what you pay for".
Unfortunately there are cons to every pro and this product is no different. The only problems I have is that it does have a tendency to leave white marks and can be quite powdery the first few times you use it, not great if your wearing black as the marks can be quite hard to rub off. Other than that it is a great buy.
Available for around £1.50 and suprisingly frequently on offer, you can get it for around a pound. For me a bargain, as I see this as the best anti-persperant/ deodorant available. Add to this it comes in one of the larger cans around (250ml), then it all adds up to a must buy.
I used to be a chronic user of Lynx among others before realising they are a massive con. Firstly charging a really high price, and secondly not really doing their job. These types of spray merely mask the odour and wetness instead of stopping it in the first place. In fact I often found these types of spray encouraged wetness instead of stopping it.
Right Guard delivers a great outcome. A couple of quick sprays after washing and I easily stay dry throughout the day. Whilst at the same time it doesn't deliver an overpowering smell, in fact it doesn't really have any smell. But this is easily overlooked when you consider it stops all the bad smells. In addition to this, a common problem with deodorant is the occurance of white marks, something which I can safely say I have never experieced with Right Guard. This in the main, is down to the fact it drys so quickly when applied, and given just a few seconds is dired completley and won't leave you embarassed.
These days, I am so pleased to have discovered Right Guard. It's not often you find a product that does a much better job than the one before previously did AND saves you quite alot of money. I urge you to switch if you find your choice of anti persperant is not delivering a top quality result.
== Introduction ==
I've been using Right Guard deodorants for absolutely ages, really ever since I started using the stuff in the first place. (No, that wasn't last Thursday, you impolite lot!) I'm not so brand loyal that I ignore good offers on other types, and I'd be willing to switch for good if I ever found something that was clearly better without being eight times the price, but so far that hasn't happened and so Right Guard still gets my custom. This particular variety is one of my favourites, and as it happens the one I used this very morn.
== Getting fresh ==
And the prize for the least original subheading in the history of Dooyoo reviews goes to David... in general I look for the "flavours" (to use a somewhat inappropriate word; as the small print stresses, solvent abuse can kill instantly, lightning flashes an' all) that seem refreshing and cool, rather than those that appear to be spicy or complex. I tend to think that if I'm wearing something to stop me getting sweaty and uncomfortable, then a cool, fresh approach is likely to be the best way to go. As such, this "Fresh" variety is one that I've bought on quite a few occasions now.
Pointless gimmick of the day is Right Guard's belief that this stuff has "3D" protection. The first two dimensions, according to the canister, are that it fights perspiration and prevents odour. (What, any odour? If I can no longer smell bacon sarnies while wearing it I shall be most put out!) On top of these two, the third dimension, which presumably accounts for the fact that the bottle is not merely a flat plane, is that it boasts "time-released freshness". Apparently this is all enabled by "micro-encapsulated active ingredients". So there.
== Fresh! A-ah! Saviour of the universe! ==
To be fair on (makers) Schwarzkopf & Henkel, they don't actually make that claim. At least, not while anybody's listening. However, they do claim that Right Guard Fresh "keeps working 24 hours a day". Oddly, they don't specify for how many days it might do so. Maybe it only works for longer than one day on the fourth Friday in October when the moon is waxing gibbous and a nightingale sings in Berkeley Square. I don't know, but for a single day it's perfectly sufficient, and happily enough it does feel nicely refreshing, a sensation which remains through the day.
Right Guard being a rather traditional brand, it's not really surprising that it has an old-school removable plastic top, which comes off with a rather satisfying pop. (In these days of austerity we must take every small comfort we can from the world.) The release button is large and scooped, and is very comfortable; there's no problem here about spraying the stuff where you want it to go. ("Do not spray into eyes", the print on the can helpfully advises, just in case you'd always thought deodorant was a type of antihistamine.)
== Buying and verdict ==
If you can't find Right Guard in the supermarket, may I suggest a course of elementary aisle-sign-reading? I expect Tesco offer that for a zillion Clubcard points. It's in just about every even halfway likely shop you could imagine; I'm not sure about M&S, but even they've (sadly) let in a few oikish big brands now, so you may even happen upon it there. It's usually priced in the middle of the range (a 250 ml can is currently £2.54 at Superdrug) but discount shops often have 150-ml packs for a pound. I think that's decent value, and I'm happy to continue buying it.
Right Guard have expanded and produced a new product hot-of-the-press. It is imbued with "3-D Protection" encompassing "fighting perspiration, preventing odour, giving time released freshness." I decided to buy this innovative product as it was half price is Sainbury's!
The metallic can is in a tall cylindrical shape topped off with a domed, black plastic lid. The colours are reminiscent of the night with a black background and layered with lime green and ocean blue swirls - conveying a sense of cool! The can is very sturdy though quite tall so it may be difficult to fit in bathroom cabinets.
You are told that it has a NEW improved formula and that it is a high quality product. To my surprise Right Guard is actually part of Schwarzkopf and Henkel, a brand I regard in high esteem!
The lid exposes an easy-press spray dispenser which is very ergonomic since it is made out of soft plastic!
~~~SMELL AND THE SPRAY~~~
The aroma of the anti-perspirant is very fresh and mildy spicy, this is quite pleasant, it has a very masculine odour about it which is nice since it isn't overpowering but quite gentle YET strong enough to be effective.
You are required to spray it from 6 inches directed under the arm. The spray itself is quite powerful, however it is quite powdery but this isn't that much of a problem.
This product claims to deliver on three fronts, fights perspiration, prevents odour and time-released freshness.
Right guard definitely fights perspiration during the day without a question, however it claims 24 hours of freshness which is not true as during the night within the 24 hours I wake up with some perspiration.
Despite this, it truly prevents odour and keeps you fresh during the day time. The product says it has a time-released freshness mechanism using micro-encapsulated active ingredients, however I don't think it works as I haven't noticed a difference throughout the time.
I do like the fact that it is alcohol-free and dermatologically tested as I have sensitive skin and it is fine for using. This ensures that the spray doesn't burn your skin but is gentle and caring for it.
First of all, when applying this spray on clothes it creates horrible white marks which is really annoying at times!
Secondly the lid doesn't fit securely on top of the can and you have to press down awfully hard to secure it in place, which is a pain.
Finally the actual spray dispenser clogs up with crystals formed by the spray as it dispenses large volumes of spray per unit time, this is annoying but can be resolved by dissolving the crystals in warm water as instructed on the can.
A very effective deodorant and anti-perspirant with a nice neutral aroma and it works to keep you dry and more importantly, FRESH!
When in Tesco recently I was looking for my usual brand of anti-perspirant deodorant when I noticed they Right Guard 3D on a special buy one get one free offer. I picked up the bottle gave it the usual shake and sprayed into the lid to see what I thought. Not my usual but a lot better than some others and at this price with getting two bottles, worth giving it a go, so in the basket it went.
The bottle comes in a 250ml size and is very noticeable, it is primarily black with various other bright colours and modern patterns, it has a removable black plastic lid which when removed, exposes the button which is nicely designed to allow you press easily and spray over your body. One fault I noticed very early on though, is you have to be a little careful when removing the plastic lid as if you are too quick or a bit too rough you can also pull the of the plastic button and just leave the small plastic pin which leads to contents of the bottle being exposed. I have done this a few times when in a rush and it is a bit of pain putting it all back together again before you can use the product.
The smell of the product is actually quite nice and leaves you smelling fresh and clean as a deodorant should. As it is also an anti-perspirant it is worth following the guidelines on the bottle which recommends you hold away from the body at about 15cm or you may find a little white powder forming, also with this in mind I have once sprayed over the top of a shirt as I was going out and it did leave a few white powdery marks which I had to clean off before leaving the house (Typically a black shirt, lesson learned though, never again!).
In regard to the workings of the product, it did give me a nice clean smell and did keep me fairly dry but towards the end of the day a small top up of spray would probably be required. I will be going back to my existing brand as I feel it does a better job in what I look for in anti-perspirant deodorant.
The current price in Tesco (23/09/2010) is £2.35 per unit which I find to be a little on the expensive side and certainly more than I normally spend on my usual brand. In my opinion this product was a good deal when I got two bottles for that price but I certainly would not be buying again unless on another special offer.
In short, I have tried worse but I have also seen a lot better results so a 3 out of 5 stars rating is the best I can give Right Guard with this one. Worth trying though if it is buy one get one free and you want to stock up to save a few pounds.
The Right Guard 3D range of antiperspirant deodorants includes a number of varieties which include the 'Fresh' branded variety. The range is very reliable and really does help to stop both ladies and gents from breaking out in to a sweat on a warm summers day. The thing I liked about when first smelling it, is the light citrusy green freshness it imparts as soon as you spray it on.
The aroma does have a slight powdery quality to it, but its very slight and so should not get up your nose. The over all feeling that the product gives is so nice and light, that although its marketed as a mens product, it can be used and worn by women also.
Its a perfect antiperspirant deodorant to wear and then layer on some of the lovely light citrusy green summer fragrances, that are about for both men and women. The spray does not jar the senses and soon settles down to give you a long lasting just washed and out of the shower citrusy freshness.
The spray should be spritzed on lightly from a distance of around 6 inches from the under arm area. The makers of the product say that is prevents perspiration, which I agree it does reasonably well. They also say that it prevents odours, which again its does a pretty good job at.
The spray also does not leave a powdery white residue on the skin, even though there is a light powdery under tone to the scent. I have found that it does not mark your clothing at all either. I find this very annoying when deso sprays do that, but in this case your clothing remains mark and stain free, which I like.
The idea of the product is that it has a time released freshness formula, which sounds a little bit over the top and is not something I have really noticed. Although the freshness does remain in a weaker more subtle way throughout the day, so maybe thats what the makers mean when they say that.
The product comes in a slim and sleek black spray can. It has modern arcs and spots of colour on it, that in the case of this 'Fresh' variety are in a metallic electric blue and a matt lime green. The can I have here, says it has a new improved formula and offers up to 24hrs protection when worn. The info on the can also states that the product contains 0% alcohol.
I can recommend the product as it does offer a really light and pleasant aroma and can help to deodorize throughout a good part of the day. It doesn't have an acidic smelling quality, although it does have very soft citrus and green scents in its mix and seems soft and gentle enough when used on the skin.
In terms of price the larger 250ml can is around £2.35 per can and the smaller more portable 150ml can is priced at around £1.79. The product is often on offer and at the moment is offered on a buy one get one free basis at some major supermarkets, making it a good time to stock up.
My rating for the product is a full 5 stars, as its pleasant and light, doesn't feel too over powering and does what it should. What more can you ask for?
