      Advantages

      • "smaller sized tin"

      Disadvantages

      • "less of it"

      not really much more in the tin.

      I am going to go against the majority of the other reviews here. I purchased this when I saw it on offer doing my weekly top up shop. I thought it was cheep to say it was the compressed tin which is supposed to hold just as much as the larger tins. in all honesty though I really didn't think this lasted anywhere near as long as the larger tins do. the smell is very nice and it does protect you just as well as other deodorants. I do sweat quite a lot and found that this doesn't provide 24 hour protection as stated on the can however it did provide protection for the majority of the day. I was very disappointed though to find that this only seemed to last me as long as a non compressed can the same size as this. I also bought my partner a compressed can at the same time and he agreed. we seemed to think it was because of the fact that it is compressed so much inside the tin that when you spray it you use much more deordorant than you normally would if you were using a non compressed can. it may have lasted a little longer but certainly not as long as I would have expected. having said that, the compressed size would obviously come in very handy for taking along on holidays with you. I would probably buy this again just to give it another trial and see if it lasts any longer next time round.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A trustworthy product

      Compressed cans are all the rage these days and Vaseline has jumped onto the bandwagon and is doing really well.
      To help the environment the can is compressed, you get the same amount for your money just more space in your bag.
      It's actually a lot easier to carry around and less bulky in appearance.

      This is part of the pro-derma range which is more caring and gentle on your underarms and I must admit I was really impressed in how much kinder to the skin it was, especially after waxing its less prone to irritation as the product states it would be.

      You can get this in two sizes 75ml or 125ml and both work really well, with a good
      24 protection that really goes the extra mile.
      I felt fresh and protect after an active day and the scent was lovely.
      With no white marks on clothes I was really impressed.
      A highly recommended product from Vaseline

      Advantages

      • "smaller tin"

      Disadvantages

      • scent

      Certainly works well just not sure about the scent.

      I was introduced to these compressed tins after a trial from Bzzagent and have not gone back to larger tins since.

      The compressed tins are a lot smaller so it's hard to believe that they can fit as much in but after using several I can confirm that they do indeed. The size is brilliant because it means that you can fit it in your suitcase or over night bag without needing to purchase a travel version.

      These sprays claim to offer 48 hour protection but I have never put that to the test, it certainly does perform well during the summer over night though.

      I have sadly found that when I spray a little too much of this it does transfer onto my bra and some tops leaving a fine white coating which has been a nightmare to remove.

      I am not a fan of the scent of the active fresh version, it's very strong and over powering. I prefer a mild scent from an anti-perspirant because I wear a scent a the same time usually.

      To use is really simple the cap pops off and under is a soft rubber cap button, you simply press and spray evenly. As previously mentioned I have found if you hold this too close it can cause a nasty build up on clothing so best to use before clothed.

      Price for the 75ml tins are around £2.50 but are often on offer. I have picked them up for as little as £1.90 before at a supermarket.

      I would have no problem recommending this to anyone due to the fact it does work and I am sure many do like the scent.

      I have given this 4 out of 5 just loosing a mark because it has caused residue.

      Advantages

      • "Small and compact"
      • "Keeps you dry all day"

      Disadvantages

      • "Smell is not great"

      Reliable deodorant that I trust

      I bought this deodorant as a top-up for other deodorant products that I have at home as I was on my way to a weekend away and had forgot my usual one. This compressed deodorant is great for holidays and camping as it fits into small bags, washbags and suitcases. It is compressed but seems to have a lot inside it, and is easy to operate with the push button spray system. The packaging is attractive. The smell is quite clinical but it did not put me off as it is very fresh. It definitely leaves you fresh and dry all day. I prefer it to Sure, Soft and Gentle and my other brands of deodorant that I tend to buy, as I find it more effective.It does not leave any white residue as sometimes happens with other deodorants. Even though it is not specifically advertised as invisble, I would say that it certainly is and would feel confident wearing it with a little black dress or on a night out. I do a lot of running and I find that when I put on this deodorant, I stay very dry! I paid around £1.50 for it which I think is decent value considering how much you get inside the spray. It don't see it running out any time soon! I have never tried Vaseline deodorant before but this is a brand I will be returning to again. I would highly recommend this product especially to busy women like myself.

      Great!

      I was very put off this product as first as I wasn't convinced it would last the same amount of time as the original sized cans..but how wrong was I! It did last just as long! Less packaging means saving the environment, which is a bonus! It smells as amazing as ever and the effect lasts just as long! I've struggled for a while to find a decent smelling and effective deodorant and also one that doesn't irritate my underarms and this one does just the trick! All in all I'm very impressed and will continue to purchase this product! Please don't be put off by the size of the can as take my word that it seriously does last just as long as the original size cans if not longer! Don't judge a book by its cover! Thanks for reading and I hope I have convinced enough :) :)

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great product

      I have used Vaseline Active fresh deodorant for a long time mainly because I think it gives good protection and also smells really nice and fresh. I like the idea of the compressed sizes, as I am quite into recycling & think its a good idea. However I find it hard to get my head around the fact that you get the same amount in a smaller can. I do believe though that you do, as I have tried the compressed can and it has lasted just as long. But I think that other buyers may feel the same as I did and not want to buy the compressed size as they believe the other size is better value for money. I would suggest to these people to give it a go and see what they think as I think they will be pleasantly surprised by it as I was.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good things come in small packages!

      INTRODUCTION
      ----------------------
      I am very careful with deodorant and, unlike most things, I have to stick to the same brand which is usually Dove. Once when I had almost run out out deodorant I went shopping and found that my usual Dove wasn't available. When it comes to deoderants I am very fussy. I have extremely sensitive skin and usually any change of deodorant makes me very sore and I end up with red and broken skin almost immediately. So what should I do??

      I started scanning the deodorant shelf wondering what on earth I should go for....... I noticed this Vaseline deodorant. One of the selling points was how it was good for sensitive skin. Had to be worth a try, well I didn't have any other choice!

      NEW AND COMPRESSED
      ----------------------------------
      It comes in a new compressed can. The can contains 75ml however it states that you can use it just like a normal 150ml deodorant and it will last just as long.

      I didn't believe this at all. The can looks pretty small if I'm honest and I thought no way will this last me as long as a normal can. It looks a bit like the size of a small body spray.
      I will admit, however, I was wrong. It does seem to last just as long and as it's a smaller bottle it is much more handy and practical. It fits nicely even in my smaller hand bags for work and doesn't take up much space at all.

      It is quite a powerful spray. I don't know if it's because it's a special compressed can to fit more in, but it definitely seems to spray out with much more power and sprays fast.

      DRYING
      ------------
      Once sprayed on it seems to dry pretty quickly unlike other deodorant's I have tried that seem to take forever to dry and if I'm in a rush (which seems to be always!!!) always get white marks all over my clothes. This one doesn't seem to do this too much and takes much less time.

      THE FRAGRENCE
      ------------------------
      The scent is very fresh. That's the best way I can describe it, fresh! It is a light fresh fragrance so it is not overpowering at all, however it is strong enough that you keep getting little sniffs of it throughout the day which I find very reassuring to know that you still smell nice all day long and the nice smell doesn't wear off after just an hour or so.

      SENSITIVE SKIN?
      -----------------------
      The most amazing thing about this deodorant for me is that I didn't react to it. After using it, my skin remained clear and not rash or blistered at all (this might not seem like much for most people, but for me using a new deodorant, it's amazing!!)

      According to the can it says it has something in in that protects underarm skin and is therefore suitable for sensitive skin. A lot of them claim this but I can say this one definitely worked for me!

      It is also alcohol free, so this could possibly help the sensitive skin bit and doesn't sting at all.

      PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
      ---------------------------------
      It costs £1.80 for a bottle and is available from all the supermarkets and drug stores (e.g boots and Superdrug). If you get it at the right time you can sometimes find it on offer for £1.

      CONCLUSION
      -------------------
      I can't really fault this deodorant.
      It feels and smells great, it's small and compact, affordable and fantastic on my sensitive skin.
      Amazing product! Totally recommended by me

      Thank you very much for reading
      5 out of 5 stars from me

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good deodorant for handbags and on the go

      When buying deodorants I'm usually one for buying in bulk for good offers, but when colleagues at work mentioned the new compressed deodorants I decided to try out the new compressed anti perspirant craze. I picked this little one up for only a pound so straightaway price was a positive factor. Having used the deodorant for 3 weeks now the can isn't empty which surprised me as I expected a little can to run out quickly. the fragrance is natural and minimally perfumed and is kind to underarms. Throughout the recent hot weather I have found this deodorant extremely effective and just as good as regular Sure or Dove deodorant. The only downfall I had with this deodorant was that you lack the cool freshness spray that you get with the non compressed cans and if not shaken well it can powder quite easily, however as a handbag miniature this deodorant is great for on the go and extremely handy for those clutch bag occasions! I would buy this product again!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      great all rounder

      This deodorant by Vaseline is great on my sometimes sensitive skin. As it is alcohol free, it doesn't sting on application or leave a horrible red rash, even after shaving. It also dries quickly and does not leave any white marks on my darker clothes, like some others do. The smaller bottle also means there is more room on the shelf for all my other lotions and potions. It also takes up less space in the gym bag so is great for travelling. The scent isn't over powering meaning that it does not interfere with your favourite perfume and it is effective at doing its job. The product also seems to last longer than other spray deodorants do although this is not a scientific fact. maybe I am just using less of it.
      I would definitely recommended this product 100%, and have even replaced my usual roll on with it.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Buy a different deodorant instead!

        When it comes to Deodorant or antiperspirant, I am very picky, I will generally look for is small enough to just slip into a purse and something that as well as helping me stay fresh, will also have a nice scent to it.
        To me this product did neither, and as much as I hate to be the only one posting a negative review, I feel as though I have to.

        The Bottle
        ------------------
        The product is held within the typical Deodorant bottle very similar to that of the "Sure" brand, although of course unlike with Sure which could almost be considered the most popular brand on the market, having the well known logo of Vaseline on the bottle without anyone decoration, makes the can appear very bland and boring.
        The spray applicator works very easily and has no faults. 5/10

        The Smell
        ------------------
        As I have previously mentioned, I believe that Deodorant should have a nice scent to it, this product certainly doesn't have the "X Factor" when it comes to it's smell and in my opinion smells almost like Baby Powder in a spray, which let's be honest isn't a scent you want to have hanging around you all day. 1/10

        Application
        ------------------
        When applying the product you have to spray very near for it work properly, which obviously stings, it also leaves white marks on your clothes, which isn't good for anyone. 5/10

        How long does it last?
        -------------------------
        To be fair the product "does what it says on the tin", it does last the full 24 hours, however you can generally get 48 hour deodorant that are of higher quality for around the same price. 7/10

        Price
        ----------
        Looking around I have found that the product generally retails at around £1.60-£2.00. 6/10

        Conclusion
        --------------
        In conclusion I would say as much I love the rest of Vaseline's products they definately need to take another look at thing one and in my opinion, you would be much better off buying a different product.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A good deodorant but not on a hot hot day

          For quite a few years I have been solely loyal to the Sure anti perspirant range, as it was always effective, in the last month or so, for whatever reason, I just didn't think it was working as well, and I found myself a little whiffy under the arm by the likes of lunchtime! So, whilst in Tesco doing my weekly shop, I decided to look at some other brands to see if they would match the original effectiveness I got from Sure. At the time, Tesco were offering this Vaseline Compressed Active Fresh for a £1, and I have seen it in Boots for the same price recently.

          I do trust the brand Vaseline which was one of the main reasons I thought it was worth a try (as well as the fact it was a pound). I had a week off work at the start of May, and it seemed like a good time to try this deodorant out as it would have been my daughter to have put up with any smell (!) if the deodorant didn't work. However this wasn't the case!

          This Vaseline Compressed Active Fresh Anti Perspirant, is a compressed version (75ml) of the original 150ml but with the claim to last just as long. I never tried the full size canister before so I can't compare. This anti perspirant claims to offer 24 hour protection and has 0% alcohol. It is certainly a brilliant size for putting in your handbag, going for a swim, going on holiday etc. I had tried the Sure compressed can and was pleased with the endurance of it. It also includes Pro Derma to care for your underarm skin, and make it less likely to become irritated.

          When I first used this spray, I was very impressed with the lovely fresh scent that came with it. The week that I was off work when I started to use the spray, I found it worked very well and I particularly liked the fact that firstly I could still smell the scent when I went to bed, and secondly, it never irritated my underarm when I sprayed it after shaving, which can happen. I had actually stocked up when I saw this anti perspirant on offer because I was so impressed.

          However in this last week, when the weather has been exceptionally warm, I found this anti perspirant let me down, and I was really very sticky. Now, I know this is not the kind of weather that occurs all summer, especially where I live, but at the same time I expect a deodorant to work in the extremes, and I felt this just let me down slightly. When the weather was just the usual, and I wasn't overly sweating, only mildly, there was no issue with this anti perspirant, but in the hot hot weather, it just didn't work as well for me.

          All in all, I will continue to use this deodorant when the weather is back to the usual, however I am looking again for something to have when the weather is hot.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            a decent compressed anti perspirant from Vaseline

            After my happy bargain of a 25p branded bodywash in Sainburys, when I was in Tesco with my sister I decided to scout their health/beauty/toiletries aisles in case they had a similar bargain! Whilst I was disappointed there was nothing brilliant going at a really cheap rate, I noticed this Vaseline Compressed Active fresh anti-perspirant deodorant was on offer and having read some good reviews about it on here I decided to pop it in the basket and give it a go.

            It comes in a 75ml white metal canister, which is really slim and petite so ideal for popping in a handbag for some spraying on the go. The new idea behind these compact aerosols is that it contains the same amount as a normal 150ml aerosol and delivers the same protection just compressed into a canister that is half the size. This not only lets it be more travel-friendly but is also better for the environment. Thanks Vaseline!

            The spray is easy to use, hold about 15cm away from the underarm (careful not to use immediately after shaving!) and spray onto skin. I find it comes out in an ample amount for a small spray so I do not need to spray excessively, just a little squirt is enough to do the job. I find I can get dressed and it doesn't leave any white stains/streaks on my clothes which is a result and something I look for in a good anti-perspirant spray! The packaging states it "contains ProDerma, a skin caring complex which can help protect underarm skin". Personally I do find it really gentle and so is one of the less harsh anti-perspirants I have used so this gets a thumbs up in this respect.

            As an anti-perspirant/deodorant this is is a good product and I am surprised as I haven't actually used Vaseline anti-perspirant before. It lasts quite long and I find it gives me a refreshing boost to prevent me feeling hot and sticky and giving me protection all day. I would recommend it as it does allow me to perspire less and in turn leaving me smell fresher for longer.

            I bought this on offer and it costs £1 from Tesco which is a really good price. Overall I have been pleased with this deodorant on and would recommend it, as it does the job and leaves me feeling fresh.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A little can with all the power of a regular size deodorant

            I tried Vaseline compressed as part of a trial with Bzzagent.

            The can is half the size of the regular can of Vaseline deodorant and claims to have the same amount of product in it - its compressed.

            In Boots the usual price is £1.90, Ocado it is £2.30. It is on offer right now in Boots for £1 which makes it great value ( Ocado it is 2 for £3 )

            I love this, the scent is fresh and not in my opinion gender specific, it is a light scent and not at all over-powering which is great because I like my deodorant to prevent me from being stinky, but not give me a scent, especially when I am exercising.

            It advertises as a 24 hour deodorant, however on days I do not exercise I find it actually lasts longer, I can wake up the following morning and still feel and smell fresh - bonus !

            I actually found this lasts longer than my usual can which is great, so not only is the can easier to carry around and the product long lasting it is also a reasonable price and just what I am looking for in a deodorant.

            I can not really think of any down sides to this, it is even quite environmentally friendly because once empty it can be recycled !

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Very impressive product.

            A few weeks ago the BzzAgent website of which I am a long time member sent out a survey asking if I'd be interested in trying any of three deodorants for free. Out of the three choices I thought this Vaseline Compressed sounded most interesting. First I had never used Vaseline deodorants before and I'd also never heard of a compressed deodorant product. BzzAgent then sent me a Vaseline Compressed product to try and since the first day I recieved it I've been using it non stop!

            Vaseline Active Fresh Compressed is a new product. The difference between this and older Vaseline deodorant products is that this lasts just as long as the 150ml sized produucts but the cannister is much smaller. There are obvious benefits to the smaller size packaging such as it's better from an environmental perspective as less materials are used and less have to be recycled. I really respect the bran's outlook on this as they spent ten years trying to design this smaller can. The dinky size is also lightweight and easy to fit into a small space so is great for travelling with or popping in our handbag. Aside from the size of the product the brand have manipulated the nozzle of the can so that the spray is dispensed in a softer fashion so that it's more pleasant to use.

            The Vaseline Compressed metal cannister is about 14 1/2 centimetres tall compared to almost 18 centimetres of my 150ml can. The diameter of the products is vastly different too with the smaller can measuring 3 1/2 centimeters to 4 1/2 for the old 150ml cans. The can feels very light and I've been carrying it around in my handbag without it feeling like a ton weight.

            The can has a sort of hourglass shape which allows your index finger and thumb to grasp the can in exactly the right position without it slipping out of your palm. The can has a plastic top and a large soft rubber button on the top. The nozzle is angled slightly upwards so you can see immediately which way to aim.

            There is a lot of useful information printed on the can, certainly enough to let you feel fully informed about the product you are using. On the front of the can the text informs that this is an anti-perspirant deodorant which means it stops sweating and provides perfume. It offers 48 hour protection from sweating and odours. The formula uses no alcohol and contains ingredients which are kind to the skin. The brand state the formula contains 'ProDerma' which is their trademarked name for a formula designed to be gentle to underarm skin.

            It's relatively easy to use this deodorant although the first time I did I had some issues. I had been using roll ons for some time and imagined this spray might not be as strong as I needed so I ended up spraying much more deodorant onto my underarms than actually necessary. This left me with white streaks on my clothes. After this mishap I tried using it more sparingly and it has been fine - no more white marks.

            The dispensing mist is actually quite powerful but it does feel really gentle when you apply it. It has a cool sensation and a perfume that smells fresh but very feminine. It has never hurt my skin even after using immediately after hair removal. It feels comfortable to wear this deodorant throughout the day and it does not make my skin feel dry or sticky. It's really like having an invisible deodorant on!

            I've found this deodorant to be very effective and this has caused me to favour it over my regular products. I've therefore been using it daily am enjoying the experience. Although I've used my product a lot it doesn't seem to be running out so I'm pleased with how much product you get. I would definitely buy this in the future and think that the recommended retail price of £1.89 is very reasonable.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Its lovely to see a big company take some steps to reduce their carbon footprint.

              I'm a member of a community called Bzz agent. Similarly to dooyoo, I get to write reviews about new products, only I get sent them for free to try as long as I spread the word about my experience with the item - good or bad.

              A few weeks back I was invited to try a new product from unilever. They make the deodorant brands Sure, Vaseline and Dove. I stated a preference for trying the Vaseline brand, and I was sent two cans to try.

              Unilever have worked on reducing the size of their product so that it is more environmentally friendly. By putting the same amount of deodorant in a 75ml can rather than the normal size of 150ml, there is less metal used in the can, and it takes less space in a truck to transport this can around the country so reducing the carbon footprint of this product a little. The can itself is also made from aluminium which is widely recycled, so all round I feel like I am being a bit green using this product which fits well with my personal moral code.

              I'm a bit fickle with deodorants. I am not usually too fussy which one I pick. I'm not an overly sweaty person most of the year round, so as long as it smells nice and keeps my armpits feeling fresh, then I will buy it. I tend to look for what is cheap to be honest, and I don't tend to use it liberally like some people do so a can will last me a long time.

              This deodorant has been used in my daily life for the past 3 or 4 weeks and I really like it. The scent is subtle. It kind of reminds me of Aloe Vera a little, and it does not overpower any other scent I put on or make me feel concious that I smell strongly of it. I find that this small can releases the deodorant just as well as a bigger can, and it is pretty good at not leaving marks on my clothes. I did notice a bit of a line on a black top I was wearing, but I just wiped it off my top with a damp flannel and got on with my day. I've had far worse experiences with white marks.

              I haven't really taken part in any strenuous sporty activities, but I have had a few busy days where we have been out all day at places with my kids, such as a soft play centre, and doing lots of walking around, and I have felt comfortable and haven't noticed any sweat patches or body odour. It is said to last for 48 hours, and I am not sure about this claim as I like to always apply fresh deodorant when I shower or get dressed in the morning, but it certainly held up to about 24 hours in this cooler part of the year for me. I am keen to see how it does in summer.

              A crucial test for me with any body spray is how does it feel on my skin, in particular after shaving. I found that there was no stinging sensation. I didn't know whether to expect any or not as there is 0% alcohol in the spray, but I was pretty relieved that there was none at all.

              Looks wise, I don't really care what the bottle looks like, but I really like the shape of the can as it sits nicely in your hand when you are using it. I also love how tiny this can is as I can fit it easily into my handbag or my rucksack if we go swimming. Its the same sort of size as an impulse can of body spray, and it will also be great if we go away as it takes up so little room compared to my standard can. I also think it is fabulous that there is a plastic case over the top of the can to avoid it being pressed in my bag.

              I wouldn't have expected to use a whole can of deodorant in the time I have been using this can as I am not the sort of person who generally uses lots of product. There is no way for me to see how much of this I have used, but I feel like the can is still pretty full from when I shake it.

              This deodorant is an absolute bargain too at the moment. Tesco have it in stock for only a pound till the 12th of March, and at this price, I don't think you can get a similar quality of product. The price will then be £1.80, which is still perfectly reasonable in my eyes for this sort of product. I will certainly purchase this one again.
