Sure Roll On Deodorant Cool Blue
Sure - Cool Blue is a deodorant for women which is manufactured by the Unilever brand. The deodorant is a fast drying anti-perspirant which claims to provide a full 48 hours of protection between applications.
Why would I buy a deodorant? Well, that's easy, I want to feel fresh and confident each day, as well as dry in the underarm department and above all I don't want to smell! I chose this roll on deodorant in particular as I have tried many aerosol deodorants in the past and although they always smelt nice and did their job, to a point, I never felt 100% confident using them. I had used roll on deodorants in the past but I remembered I had stopped using them as I hated the 5 minute walk around with my arms in the air while waiting for it to dry, however a couple of years ago I was due to go on holiday with hand luggage only and due to all the liquid restrictions when it comes to flying this meant that I couldn't take my usual aerosol deodorants. After a little trip to Tesco I found this deodorant, Sure 48 hour, fast drying, anti-perspirant deodorant. I chose it mainly because of its claims to be fast drying and long lasting and also because it was on offer at £1 at the time. Ah, and also because at 50ml it is small enough to be taken on board a flight in the little plastic bags which they make you put liquids and gels inside as you go through airport security.
How To Use
Sure Roll On Deodorant is really easy to use, it comes packaged in a white tube style bottle with a screw cap which doubles as a base for the deodorant to stand on. The label on the front contains the usual branding and claims about how dry and fresh this deodorant will keep you and on the back there is another label which contains a list of ingredients as well as the contact information for Unilever.
To use the deodorant you simply need to unscrew the cap which is at the base of the deodorant, you will then see a white roller ball ready to roll onto your arm pit. The first time you use the deodorant you will need to give it a quick roll with your finger first as the ball will be dry.
I find that usually rolling the deodorant the length of my armpit back and forth twice in each direction is enough to give an even coating and not make the coating so thick that it would take ages to dry. Which, I will point out, it actually does what it says on the bottle and dries very fast. I would say that in less than 20 seconds I am able to put my clothes on with no worries about getting them wet or marked.
How Does It Smell?
Sure Roll On Deodorant Cool Blue has a very 'fresh' and I would say clean smell to it. The scent reminds me of fresh laundry which I personally really like. I would say the smell is reasonably strong and you can smell it clearly after application, but I wouldn't say that it is overpowering. I would feel confident to wear this deodorant alone without the added use of perfumes as it smells nice and fresh and as I said, very much like fresh laundry.
Do I Smell?
I am pleased to say that after what is now coming up to 2 years of using this deodorant I cannot remember an occasion where I have had that terrible 'omg, I smell' moment and felt the need to keep my arms down and run for the nearest bathroom! Since using this deodorant I have always felt fresh and confident that it is providing a lasting protection.
I'm not too sure how accurate the claim of providing 48 hour protection is as I have never tried to go 48 hours without having a shower in the morning and re-applying the deodorant and sorry, but I don't really fancy doing this experiment! For me, this deodorant provides ample protection each day and I am more than pleased with its performance.
I have also noticed that even though the bottle doesn't claim to be a 'No White Marks' deodorant, I have never had an issue with white marks while I have been using this, so needless to say I am really satisfied with this fact, especially as I wear a lot of black tops.
I have recently been wearing a few blouses and my favourite checked shirts and in the past for some reason wearing these garments always seems to make me feel a little bit more hot and sweaty in the underarm department, however, this time this is not the case as my armpits have remained dry and sweat free.
During the summer last year I was lucky enough to be in the heat of around 37 degrees and in this heat I think there is no alternative to give in and become a sweaty mess, even this deodorant couldn't keep me dry in that heat, however, even though the dryness was gone and I was yucky and sweaty, I remember noticing that I didn't actually smell of that horrible sweat smell, but instead I could smell the scent of the deodorant a lot more strongly which I remember feeling rather relieved about. During this heat I did find myself re-applying the deodorant throughout the day, I'm not sure if I actually 'needed' to, but it made me feel better and fresher so I did!
For a 50ml bottle of Sure Cool Blue I paid £1 from Tesco, this was my bargain price as it was on offer, the usual price for this deodorant is £1.70 in Tesco. I think this is very reasonable price for a deodorant that actually does what it claims to. The 50ml bottle usually lasts me around 2 months so for great underarm protection I am paying less than £1 per month! Bargain!
Tesco often have the range of Sure deodorants on offer so if you can get it then you will be getting even more of a bargain!
Would I Recommend?
Yes, I would recommend Sure Cool Blue Roll On deodorant. I have been using it for almost 2 years now and I have never looked back. I have always felt fresh and clean and my clothes have never had issues with white marks or any other marks which you may sometimes get in the underarm areas of clothes. At a bargain price I really cannot fault this deodorant and I will be continuing to use it for a long time to come.
Thanks for reading :)
Summary: It 'Sure' is good!
