I was after a cheaper alternative to Lynx de-oderant and came across Sure anti-perspirant. It's currently on offer in Tesco and only costs a pound which is good value, however I can't really say it does the job well. It claims 24 hour protection yet I find myself having to 'top-up' occasionally. It does work better than the predecessor I was using but again I don't think you could get much better without it becoming ridiculously expensive.
It's widely available and when it's not on offer it sells for around the £1.50-£1.75 mark, depending where you buy from but I've never seen it more than 2 quid. I think it's best selling point is that it's cheap and lasts quite a while but it doesn't quite do what it says on the can! You get a decent spell of not sweating then towards the end of the day you'll need to reapply.
I would recommend it to anyone who's looking for a cheap alternative for something that actually works, it's not a well known brand amongst my age group because I've always used Lynx prior to using Sure. It may work better for other people, I can only speak for myself but it's definitely worth a try.
I have used sure for many for many years and i have found it to be far superior than any other deoderant on the market.
Sure boasts that it gives 24hr protection, i am not sure that it gives protection for 24hour but i do know that during day to day activities it keeps me dry. I have even found it to be effective during some sporting activities which is rather impressive. I also find that the can lasts me a long time and i dont have to use alot in order to be protected.
One criticism i have had of other deoderants in the past is that it leaves my underarms feeling stick and many leave marks on my tops. However with sure i have never had this problem.
My one criticism of sure is its price, i have seen the price rise quite dramtically over the past year or so and deals on the item have been few and far between.
However for me sure is worth the extra 60 pence it may cost you as the comfort and protection it provides are priceless
Having convinced my husband, body spray is for the body, and not best for the under arms, especially when you sat in a hot office for 8 hours a day, he became a regular fan of "sure" as a daily deoderant.
I have to say the smell was wonderful, and I would have quite happily used it myself, and it seems to work a treat, leaving the under amrs smelling fresh. It obviously didnt stop the perperation, but did stop the bacteria smelling which was a bonus, so I can honestly say it does what it says on the tin. BUT:
After a few months of use, and a few change of fragrances, hubby complained to me about an itchy rash under his arms, which seemed to only arrive when he used the sure, and disapeared when he pinched my roll on
For some reason, he became allergic? and he doesnt have sensitive skin like me.
So, putting it to the test, I used the spray, and sure enough, after a few uses, I to had the itchy rash in my arm pits.
it says nothing on the tin about sensitive skin, so passed the remainders onto my father, who low and behold also developed the same problem.
unfortunately, this product is no-llonger on our shopping list, but i was otherwise a lovely product.
I have been using this anti-perspirent/deodorant combination for the past couple of months. It has many advantages over similar products.
Firstly, it is very affordable for its quality, generally costing around £3. The 250ml can will last for quite a long time. In addition, due to its tall design, it won't take up much space on your bathroom shelf. Its design is also sleek and visually pleasing.
The spray's smell is satisfactory, but there are better smelling deoderants, such as the Linx range. However, as an anti-perspirant, it is top quality, proving (like it says on the tin) absolute protection against unsightly sweat patches.
It contains no alcohol and thus feels very gentle on the skin. The can is also designed with a locking mechanism underneath the button. This is very useful as the can will not accidently discharge when, for instance, it is placed in a bag with other items that might press against the button, and i would recommend it to people who are travelling or going on holiday.
In all honesty, i have no criticsm for the product and feel that is one of the best sprays on the market.
Upon first looking at this product for the first time, I was most impressed with its can. Its color scheme was quite modern and attractive with purple highlights. This was confirmed when I picked it up and felt the texture on both sides of the can, it was nice to hold and grip.
There is also a locking mechanism with the can, which prevents the button from being accidently pressed, hence causing the spray to be discharged.
This lock could be useful if you constantly stuff your gym bag or bag with plenty of stuff which could be forced on to it hence causing a mess that smells rather nice. The spray button is also textured which is great, because it can almost be impossible to press these things when you are really sweaty.
The smell of the spray itself is quite pleasant, it is distinctive and strong. Yet it does not make you want to choke when you spray too much.
The pressure of the spray is quite powerful and the nozzle is good at making sure it is spray out without drips even when its almost empty, obviously the pressure would decrease as the content of the can is being used up.
After applying the spray before going out or exercise, it gives good protection instantaneously. I also enjoy using the spray even during and after exercise to get a stronger smell.
I have been using this deodorant and anti-perspirant for a long time as it has done such an excellent job and works very well. It comes on a good size container so lasts a bit longer than other anti-perspirants. It has a lovely manly odour and will not only make you smell nice, but keep you dry at the same time.
The deodorant comes in an aluminum can. The whole thing is made of metal apart from the cap, which is made of plastic in the same grey colour. The actual can has a shiny silver look with a blue design down each side. There are also shiny dark blue/black ridged parts on the upper sides so it has a really modern and cool look. The Sure logo (a tick) is towards the top of the can in the centre. Below, it says 'absolute protection, 24H' and says 'Sure Men Cobalt'. It also notes that the deodorant and anti-perspirant has 0% alcohol so it won't sting you at all.
The metal casing makes it very tough so it only makes a loud noise if it's dropped and it won't get damaged. The deodorant has a very unique way of working. On the top of the cap on the back is a black slider, which is used to lock and unlock the spray. Once it's unlocked, you can freely press down the large grey button on the top and it will spray out an even layer. The packaging is great as it looks cool and the bottle is rather big at 250ml.
The product is great to use as it can be handled with ease and the spray comes out at a good pressure. You can really feel the spray coming out, unlike other deodorants where it seems like a mist that doesn't do anything. This spray will really stick to your body, make you smell nice and stop you from sweating. It has quite a distinct and strong smell like other deodorants and it will stay on you most the day. The main thing is that it really does stop you sweating so you won't have huge patches of sweat under your armpits and on your body. You don't need to use much as it does a very good job.
The only problem I had with the product is using the lock function. This actually broke on one bottle so the whole can was useless, as I couldn't get the spray to come out. I tried fitting the cap back on perfectly but the lock mechanism was messed up and it didn't fit in place to release any spray when the button was pressed. This has only happened once out of the many times I have bought a can, but I would recommend you put the lock off and keep it off once it has been purchased.
Price & Availability
You can buy this for around £2.80 and you get a 250ml can. It's not the cheapest product on the market but does a first-class job and is vital for the summer months especially. It does actually last quite long due to its size and the way you only need to use a little amount. You can buy it in places like Tesco and also pharmacies and other beauty stores.

In conclusion, this is one of the best deodorants and anti-perspirants on the market. It has only failed on me once with the lock function but this can be fixed by keeping it unlocked constantly as it shouldn't break. The spray comes out very well at a good pressure and evenly. It comes out as a cold, wet spray rather than a dry mist, so you know it's really going to work. It immediately dries and will keep you dry throughout the day. It has a wonderful smell that is fabulous at first but wears off slightly during a day of labour. It doesn't come at a bad price, as it should last you a few weeks and maybe even a month in the winter months.
Thanks for reading,
This antiperspirant is my favourite. The strong smell masks any unwanted smell you may produce, and when you do get hot and sweaty during the day, you can clearly smell this through your clothes. In my opinion it provides you unbeatable protecting from sweat enhanced smell. The handy lock feature at the top of the can prevents accidental spraying if you carry the can anywhere or put it in your bag.
However I have found the deoderant is notorious for leaving white marks on your clothing, and find it best to wait a minute or 2 after spraying until putting my top on in order to prevent this. However, it mkes up for this with its first rate protection, and the smell it provides you. It smells fresh and very masculine, and you can be safe in the knowledge that this will stop you smelling, and even works well as an antiperpirant in reducing your volume of sweat.
This is a brilliant product with really clever packaging that allows you to lock the systems to prevent accidental spraying. My husband really struggles during the heat and has found this one of the few products to meet his requirements. The protection provided by the extreme protection deoderant is brilliant, it smells fantastic and feels nice when it is sprayed on. Unlike many spray deoderants it doesn't leave you with that choking effet when applied and it seems to last longer than previous sprays we have tried - clearly that must have a financial benefit although I haven't tracked that.. The clever locking system means that my husband can carry it in his work bag and use it as required - whilst this may seem a really simple device it never ceases to amaze and fascinate said husband. The bonus recently has been the opportunity to win ashes tickets although do not know anyone who has won yet. The only negative point is that the number of fragrances are limited however I think that these are more aimed at those requiring improved performance.
B.O., what a charming little acronym for that most embarrassing of conditions; body odour. Body odour is not caused by sweat (which is only really salt and water), but by the action of bacteria on that sweat, excreting odorous compounds (the condition's not made any more palatable knowing that the smell's due to bacteria poo!).
People (quite rightly) spend millions of pounds every year to avoid the dreaded B.O. The Sure brand, owned by chemical Giant Unilever, has been at the forefront of deodorant manufacturing for many years and has consistently produced excellent quality products.
Their latest, Sure Aero For Men Active, promises to be even more effective at reducing the risk of body odour.
The product is supplied in a 250ml can. Unlike most aerosols, it does not have a cap to prevent accidental release. Instead there's a small sliding lock near the top of the canister. With the lock in place, the aerosol cannot be activated, so there's no need for a cap.
To use, the can is shaken, and held around 15cm from the body. The trigger is then depressed and the aerosol sprayed onto the skin. I'm not a big fan of perfumed products, so am pleased to say that Sure Active has a very slight, but pleasant 'dry' odour. Once on the skin, the deodorant feels silky smooth and does not cause me any irritation, at all (it is apparently pH balanced with the skin).
Deodorants work by absorbing sweat before the bacteria on the skin can get to it and turn it into the odorous compounds we know and hate. The deodorant can only work, as long as there's 'un-reacted' deodorant left to absorb sweat.
This new Sure has an extra weapon in its armoury. The spray contains micro-capsules of active ingredient that are released when needed (i.e. when sweat is building up). The manufacturers say that this 'active response' means that the deodorant responds if extra protection is needed and you stay drier for longer.
It works! Applying this in the morning means that I can forget all about B.O. and damp underarms for the whole of a normal working day. On a really hot day, or a really active one, I find an extra 'squirt' of Sure at lunch time refreshes the deodorant on the skin and prevents it all being 'used up'.
I've been using Sure products for twenty years, and prefer them to all other manufacturers (and I have tried quite a few). This new Sure is the best I've ever tried. Deodorant adverts often talk about 'confidence' when using their products. In other words, not having to worry that you smell or have small puddles under your arms. Sure Active For Men lives up to that claim; this deodorant gives me complete confidence, no matter what I'm doing.
The can claims that the deodorant is proven to work at up to 58 centigrade, the hottest temperature recorded on Earth! Very impressive, until you read further down that the can must not be exposed to temperatures above 50 centigrade!
The deodorant costs around £2.80 for a 250ml can, this normally lasts around 2-3 weeks. For providing me with so much 'confidence' this is well worth the money!
