Sure Fragrance Collection Bright
Advantages: Nice scent, generally makes me feel protected and does what it is meant to do.
Disadvantages: Could perform better during sports/warmer weather
Along with my other daily essentials I always apply deodorant as part of my morning routine. I am not brand loyal when it comes to deodorant, but due to the good prices lately I have been using Sure a lot more recently.
=== The Deodorant ===
This deodorant is 'Bright' from Sure's fragrance collection. It is possible to get the same fragrance as a roll on, but this review is for the aerosol spray. There are other scents in the fragrance collection that you may wish to consider if 'Bright' isn't for you.
=== Packaging ===
This spray is available in the larger sized spray cans, but the one I am using is one of the 'compressed' 75ml cans. The packaging is the same for each size. The cylinder shaped can with an indent towards the top is white/pale pink in colour with the Sure logo and Sure 'tick' in pink. There are also pink flowers going around the can. Then of course you have your standard ingredients list, etc. printed onto the can. I'll admit it was the colour scheme of the can what attracted me to this in the first place - it's pink and girly (I'm not always a girly girl... honest). It is really easy to spot this one on the shelves which has been useful when out shopping in a rush.
The compressed cans are 75ml, which supposedly have the same amount of product in them as a larger 150ml can, just compressed further. I prefer to have smaller cans so I can just chuck one in my bag without it taking up too much room. It may also be worth bearing in mind that anything 100ml or less is acceptable in your hand luggage when flying. Seeing as I wanted my deodorant with me (just in case... you never know!) it was especially important for me to have a smaller can on my last purchase. It is also more environmentally friendly to use these smaller cans (less packaging, more cans can be transported in a smaller space, etc.).
Aerosol cans are recyclable depending on your local facilities.
=== Price and Availability ===
Most recently I bought this spray from Superdrug for around £1.20 for the compressed 75ml can. At this price I do feel the product is good value for money.
Sure is a big brand name and is as well as Boots and Superdrug is generally available anywhere that sells these sorts of products: supermarkets, chemists, stores like Wilkinsons, etc. I have seen a range of prices and offers so keep an eye out. If the size of the can isn't a problem I have found the larger cans to work out be the same price, if not cheaper, than the smaller cans in terms of mls of product per pound, but as previously mentioned I prefer to have smaller cans.
=== Usage ===
You use this the same as any other deodorant spray - hold a distance (recommended 15cm according to the tin) and spray. As with any spray I would recommend doing this in a well ventilated room.
The spray has a nice floral scent to it. It does also have a vanilla like sweetness to it, but in my opinion this is not overpowering. This may just be because I happen to love sweet things (both to eat and scent wise!). The scent does stick around for a couple of hours or so after applying, which I love. Just wish it was longer! I do sometimes spray this on my clothes to help the scent stick around.
In terms of a deodorant and anti-perspirant though the effects thankfully last longer. The tin claims they last up to 48 hours - I can't say I've tested this out - but an application in the morning is generally enough to make me feel protected all day. I would then normally apply again in the evening if I was going out anywhere. This seems to have been fine for your normal standard days.
I did have a couple of issues when on holiday. In the Mediterranean heat this product was going to have a tough fight on it's hands. I must admit though generally I felt sticky more than sweaty - if that makes sense, possibly aided by the fact I was constantly covered in sun cream. I kept the can with me so I could have a nice floral top up if I felt I needed it. A quick spray and I'd feel a little refreshed, but nothing felt better than a cool shower after a busy day sightseeing.
On a different note though, I like to take my dog to the park on my bike - Both my dog and I have more of a work out than if we just walk. At a slow to medium pace (my dog only has little legs, have to give him a chance!) and a relatively unfit me this deodorant is enough for me to not feel like I have drenched underarms, though I do get a little sticky and always shower afterwards to freshen up.
=== Summary ===
I love the scent, and I love the product. For general day to day use this product is long lasting. There is also the added bonus of I have not found it to leave white marks on me or my clothes like some other sprays.
I am happy with the product, have re-bought it, and most likely will again. The only gripe I have is that I wish it would perform a little better during exercise and in hotter climates, which is why I have dropped one star.
Summary: A great day to day deodorant
