Sure Crystal Clear Roll On
Advantages: Works well, smells lovely, smart container, good price
Disadvantages: None for me
When I went into Boots some weeks ago I had a £1 voucher off Sure Crystal deodorant. I didn't actually need to buy any deodorant but I wasn't going to pass up the chance of using a £1 off voucher!
As anyone who regularly reads my reviews will know I am usually a Dove girl or these days Body Shop when it comes to deodorants but as I say the lure of £1 off is just too much for me to resist.
When I actually went to buy the deodorant there was a problem - it had been reduced from £1.75 to 87p. Now even if maths is not your strong point it is easy enough to work out that if I bought the deodorant at 87p and used the £1 off voucher Boots would then owe me 13p and that isn't going to happen now is it?
I actually treated myself to a shower gel for £1 making my total bill £1.87 and I handed over my voucher only to be asked to pay £1.37 - the till had been set to add back 50p - now there was a matter of principle here! I was quite happy to have the face value of the voucher reduced to 87p (the true cost of the product) but I was blowed of they were going to reduce it to 50p! I had a conversation with the assistant who agreed with me and I paid £1 for the shower gel and got my deodorant for free.
The deodorant in question, to give it its full name, is Sure Roll On Crystal Clear Aqua.
The container is not the one pictured at the top of this review, maybe that one is an older version. It is now one of the new design ones in the shape of a bullet which stands with the roller ball at the bottom which is brilliant because it means that it is so much easier to use all of deodorant as the liquid naturally moves towards the ball rather than away from it as it does with the ones that stand the other way up. I always used to stand my deodorants upside down in the bathroom cabinet so that I could use every last drop before I threw them away! Please tell me I'm not the only one!
The 50ml container is made completely from plastic so it is recycleable, which is a good point as far as I am concerned.
This one is coloured in shades of grey which sounds a bit dull but actually looks rather classy. It has a screw cap and the label on the front tells us that it is 'anti perspirant and 0% alcohol' and that it is 'invisible' on clothes - even black ones. On the back there is a full list of ingredients.
The other thing we are told is that it is 48 hour deodorant. Now I have a problem with this - why would I want a deodorant that would last 48 hours? I have a shower every morning and so it is reapplied daily making 24 hour protection plenty long enough. It isn't just me is it?
Anyway on to the use of the deodorant - having unscrewed the cap there is a decent sized roller ball which makes actually applying the deodorant to your underarms nice and easy. I have found that this deodorant always runs freely and I have never had any problem with it drying out, obviously due to the design of the container.
I thoiught that the fragrance was really lovely and as usual I find it really difficult to describe but I will have a try. It is a flowery smell without being too sweet or sickly - it is not unlike the smell of baby powder if that helps.
I find that the deodorant dries quite quickly after I have applied it which saves me having to stand in the bathroom flapping my arms like a demented seagull!
The deodorising and antiperspirant effect works all day long and I haven't yet found any white marks on any of my clothes so it has lived up to its expectations for me.
I can't say whether the effect would actually last for 48 hours as I have washed each morning before reapplying the deodorant.
The container would be great to take on holiday as it is nice and small and, being a roll on, there wouldn't be any problem with pressure if it was taken on an aeroplane.
In conclusion I would have to say that I am very impressed with my 'free' deodorant and would certainly consider buying it again in the future.
Summary: I would recommend this one
