“ Brand: Palmolive / Type: Roll-on / Suitable for: Body „
After being a spray deodorant type of girl for many years, I changed almost overnight to a roll on variety, this is due I feel to advances in the roll on's (when I was younger I hated the sticky sensation they would create in your armpit) and also due to the mess some spray deodorants make!
Now I do have my favourites, but being a self confessed "bargain whore", I tend to buy whatever is on offer, with there usually being some savings to be made, hence I came across this roll on, and why I purchased it!
Soft and gentle is a brand I have used previously with varying degrees of success, but as this was on offer at 87p a tub I was hardly going to refuse was I?!
This particular roll on is a small white tub, which is shaped to fit snuggly within even the smallest of hands securely, with the screw on/off lid determining the particular "scent" of the roll on, with mine being a lilac lid, the scent is lavender and patchouli, and classed as an "anti stress" one, well every little helps I suppose!
The brand promises "24hr protection", which I feel is always an unrealistic claim to make, as not many of use will only apply deodorant one a day, especially in this unseasonably lovely and hot weather we are currently having!
To use you simply roll onto the underarm, leaving to dry before getting dressed (which of course I never do as I am usually rushing around in the morning, but have never had any problems with staining from wet armpits!), avoiding using this on broken skin (which again I am afraid I have done, rushing and shaving is never a good combination, though thankfully if I have cut myself it doesn't sting when applied!).
This particular scent is lovely an almost herbal in scent, sometimes I can find lavender products a bit too heavy, but this got the balance of scents perfect, with the scent being noticeable but not over poweringly so.
Longevity of use left me feeling a bit sweaty feeling after a good three to fours hours after application, but never with that musty smell you can sometimes get with sweat, so I simply re-applied again, which did make me feel fresher.
A 50ml bottle of this will last me a good 2-3 weeks of daily use, though will last a good 12months if you use them like my daughter, she gets very exited by new "flavours" leaving various half opened one's lying around for future use!
I really liked this brand and this scent, and would quite happily re-buy this again, recommended!
