Sure Women Aloe Vera Anti Perspirant
Advantages: Smells nice, cool lid on can
Disadvantages: REALLY bad white marks!
I recently had an emergency whereby I had run out of deodorant without realising and making the necessary arrangements by getting more. I also, at the time, only had £5.78 in order to get lunch and now a deodorant. This posed a problem as I was dreading the thought of having to use a rubbish own-brand spray from my local Boots. How thrilled I was when 'Sure Women Aloe Vera' was on special offer. Two cans for 2.50, that left me plenty for lunch. I thought my luck was in, well known and apparently trust worthy brand promising 24hour protection. I was also glad that the particular spray that was in the offer was Aloe Vera as I have very sensitive skin and have often found that Aloe Vera products have been good for me, or at the very least not reacted with my skin.
The can looked pleasant to, very cool and clean colours. It features an interesting 'locking' mechanism whereby you slide a little grey coloured piece of plastic across the back of the can to lock and unlock the deodorant. This is a nice touch as it stops and accidental sprays if it's in a handbag and also avoids the need for a lid that inevitably falls off anyway. The front of the can is predominantly white, with a light, apple green swirl down the whole front from top to bottom, the large green 'Sure' trademark tick, as well as the brand name in black. In the same green the can tells consumers its Aloe Vera, Body Responsive, 24 hour protection and contains 0% alcohol. This was all nice to know. The back is mainly the light apple green used for just detail on the front. It has a little logo telling you how to operate the slider system and again sports the 'Sure' logo. Underneath this, it makes the promise that 'You Cannot Buy a More Effective Anti-Perspirant Aerosol for Women'. This is a high claim and I was eager to test its strength.
Just to make sure that I wasn't going to end up with a product I didn't like the smell of, I do as anyone would and sprayed a little into the air in the shop, just to make sure that it was a smell I wanted to carry with me for the rest of the day. It was nice and smelt, unsurprisingly, of Aloe Vera. It also didn't have that initial, nasty smell that chokes you like some other deodorants do so that was a definite bonus. I thought that this was brilliant. It was light and fresh and made me feel cooler just by the smell.
So I bought it.
Although it smells nice and it cools you down, it leaves the most awful white marks I have ever seen! I used it as soon as I got home and it looked like I had dandruff coming from my armpits. It doesn't just leave them on clothes, but on skin to. I didn't notice until I put my arm down after applying and just saw what looked like fairly heavy snowfall on my bedroom floor. I took a look and my armpit was caked in a thick, which nasty powder.
Admittedly it smelt fine and works all day, as claimed. However I can't use it when wearing strappy tops because it looks so awful and its just annoying having to brush off these clumps and clean up the mess every time I want to use it. Although the deodorant doesn't make any claims about not leaving any white marks, this is ridiculous. It wasn't just a little white stain on my clothes, it was everywhere.
I would avoid this product, because personally, although it smells nice and I like the lid, it really isn't usable everyday. Very disappointing for such a well established household name. The worst thing is now I'm stuck with two of them!
The star I have awarded is simply based on smell alone, and if that was all that mattered it would be a great product. Sure, Must Try Harder!
Summary: I wont be buying this again, Dont like having to sweep after using deodorant!
