Sure Women Aloe Vera Anti Perspirant
Advantages: comfortable to hold due to design - works well most of the time
Disadvantages: no lock like you see on a lot of bottles - is very pricy most of the time
Unlike some lucky girls who don't sweat buckets, I have to be careful at the kind of anti-perspirant I use to get the job done - and in this sense I go for the big branded stuff as I have more faith that they are reliable than the cheaper brands.
However I like a good bargain and only tend to buy big name anti-perspirants when they are on offer during my monthly shop in Tesco and I normally stock up, going through 1-2 bottles to myself every month.
The Sure anti perspirants in my opinion have the best looking packaging - with the bottle now in a different tall curvy shape to whats pictured here - to me it represents the shape of a womans body in a not so obvious way - it curves in slightly towards the top of the bottle and opens out thicker towards the bottom... or to others the feature could be there to make holding the bottle a little more comfortable, which works very well!
One thing that annoys me about some bottles is the fact that the top which covers the aerosol spray can be loose and can fall off often causing a mess in your handbag... Im happy to tell you the top on these bottles is quite secure and if you are careful this will not happen... However there is no safety lock on these that you see on a lot of aerosols and to me this does let the bottle down. There is a statement on the back of the bottle which gives you instruction on how to unlock the spray but I have found it unlocks only when you first use the product - and is not lockable again after... useless really apart from the sense that you can tell if someone has used it in store previous to you purchasing it...
Another issue which grinds me - not just with Sure - but the product claims it has the ability to last 48 hours even when your quite an active person... I am yet to find a product that lives up to that claim - I don't like false statements at all from a manufacturer... The statement on the back of the bottle states "With a breakthrough motion sense system from Sure containing microcapsules which are activated when you move releasing little bursts of freshness throughout the day" - This statement I do agree with - as previously mentioned I do not have the dryest underarms in the world and if I'm having a stressful day at work unfortunatly my pits get the worst of it! This product has rarely failed me with the dreaded SWEAT PATCH which is a hard thing to find with many products.
Out the Sure range my favourite is this Aloe Vera scent - for no reason other than I love everything Aloe Vera, my favourite products being Aloe Vera aftersuns - due to the gorgeous scent and caring elements it has to offer my skin. I do tend to find this product, like after sun tends to work better on my underarms especially after shaving or using my epulator. If your not a great fan of Aloe Vera, like myself, fear not... unlike many other strong smelling aloe vera products the scent as nice as it is, is quite faint and not overpowering or sickly... and in my experiance the scent compliments most perfumes and body sprays you use along beside it.
A nice thing which is included with this at the moment is that Sure have teamed up with French Connection to give a lucky buyer the chance to win one of several French Connection outfits - its an online competition which I entered a couple of days ago on www.surewomen.co.uk but knowing my luck I wont of won (although it would be nice as the dress I chose was very pretty!)
I bought this 250ml bottle from the Sure range for around £1.50 when on offer but currently stocks at Tesco for £3.00 - which in my opinion is a little bit of a high price to pay so I would recommend waiting until its on offer and stocking up - which happens quite a lot in Tesco.
Summary: one of the best anti-perspirants in my opinion!
