I've tried the anti-perspirant spray with the world's longest name - Right Guard Xtreme Cool Maximum Strength 72 Hour Anti Perspirant with Air Conditioning Effect - so I thought I'd give the roll-on ball variety a go. I quite like the spray version and seeing as I found the roll ball for just £1 on offer it seemed a good choice to try.
It's a dark blue 50 ml plastic rollerball design with white and silver writing on the small label, as if they're trying to convey a message of coolness in both senses. The ball end of the container is quite large with an enormous screw-off cap whereas the bottom end of the product (which is presumably where the actual solution is held) is very thin. It's contoured to fit your hand and actually feels quite nice but I guess that's very much a secondary consideration: you're not going to be holding it for very long, are you?
The roller ball bit is big enough to cover even the largest armpits in just a couple of strokes. As with the spray can version, this product feels very strong, as if it's taking its job very seriously. The liquid it applies feels considerably thicker than most roll-on ball anti-perspirants' but it isn't sticky at all. It goes on very easily but, unusually for a roll-on, tingles when applied. I'm not going to go as far as to say it stings but you can certainly feel that there's something happening there. Now being a big bluff northern bloke I'm quite hairy. I'm not going to test it out but I suspect that if you applied this to newly-shaved pits then you'd feel more than the tingling sensation that I got. And it smells nice too. It's not a perfume at all but a menthol, eucalyptus aroma with a touch of mint. It's a really pleasant, fresh aroma and it lasts for hours.
It also claims to offer 72 hour protection from sweaty smells. Well I'm sorry but would anyone really want to apply this and then leave it for three days without washing or at the very least giving their armpits another coating with this? Sorry, I'm not testing that claim out.
All in all I have to say that I prefer the spray canister version. But this roll-on is small enough to fit in a pocket and it works well. I'd give it three and a half stars if I could but I'll be generous and stretch to four.
