Vaseline Intensive Care Active Fresh Antiperspirant Deodorant
Advantages: Keeps me nice and fresh
Disadvantages: None at all
I recently ran out of my current deodorant so when I did my weekly shop I had a quick look to see what they had on offer. I decided to give Vaseline Active Fresh 24h Protection deodorant a try, I have tried Vaseline products in the past and have always been impressed with them so I hoped that this would be no different. I do find that some deodorants can irritate and burn the skin under my arms so I do have to be careful what I purchase, this one contains 0% alcohol so I hoped that it was going to be ok and suit my skin, it wasn't expensive so if I didn't get on with it I hadn't wasted too much money.
The Vaseline Active Fresh deodorant comes in a rounded plastic bottle, the bottom of the bottle is the widest part and it narrows towards the top into a rounded point. The base of the bottle is flat allowing you to stand it up meaning that none of the product is wasted, the base also doubles up as the lid, this is made from a slightly transparent blue plastic and simply screws on and off of the bottle. The lid takes up about a quarter of the bottle, the rest is covered with a clear plastic label, the label on the front of the bottle has the Vaseline logo at the top of it with the words "Active Fresh 24hr Protection" written underneath in dark blue writing. The words "anti-persperant deodorant" are also written underneath in mint green coloured writing, this is repeated in a second language and also has a picture of a white clock within a mint green rectangle shape. There is no other information on the front of the bottle, the rest of the product information can be found on the back of the bottle, the ingredients appear on a white plastic label in blue writing, this is a peelable label and on the second layer you can find the product warnings, again written in blue writing. There is not a huge amount of information on the back of the bottle but it does tell you the majority of what you need to know, and it is clearly written and set out.
The Vaseline Active Fresh Deodorant is the same consistency of most deodorants and when you shake the bottle it sounds like a thick liquid, it is clear in colour, this can be seen as you roll the roller ball on the end of the bottle. To be honest when I purchase a new deodorant I do not really think of the fragrance of it, as long as it smells reasonable and keeps me smelling fresh throughout the day I'm not too worried, the Vaseline Active Fresh deodorant actually has a really nice fragrance to it, it is quite floral, the fragrance is quite strong but not over the top, to be honest there's no point in a deodorant having such a light smell that you can hardly detect it but on the other hand I do not want a fragrance that is so strong it over powers any other fragrance am wearing such as my perfume. Personally I found that the fragrance of this this particular deodorant was just right, it was strong enough to keep me smelling fresh throughout the day but it didn't dominate or overpower my perfume.
As well as the fragrance the next important factor for me with a deodorant is how quickly it dries, obviously with a roller ball deodorant it does not dry instantly, however there is nothing worse than a deodorant that takes so long to dry that you are standing there waiting to get dressed. When I first applied the deodorant to my under arms it was not sticky at all, my skin felt a bit damp for a few minutes but I did notice that it dried pretty quickly, for me this was perfect as it meant I could apply the deodorant a couple of minutes before I get dressed and know that it is going to be dried in time. Once dried the Vaseline Active Fresh felt and smelt extremely fresh, I wear this deodorant every morning whether I am going to work or to the gym and so far I have found that Vaseline Active Fresh really does work, the deodorant keeps me feeling and smelling clean and fresh all day, even after an hour at the gym my under arms still felt and smelt fresh. I can apply this deodorant in the morning and be confident that it will keep me fresh throughout the whole day no matter how busy I am.
Price and Availability
I purchased my 50ml bottle of deodorant from Tesco and it cost me just £1.00 reduced from £1.53, the bottle is proving to be long lasting and the fact that I do not need to keep reapplying it throughout the day also helps the bottle to last longer. I do think that Vaseline Active Fresh is very good value for money especially as it actually works as does what it says it will.
I would certainly recommend Vaseline Active Fresh deodorant, the deodorant has a lovely fragrance to it which is not over powering, the large roller ball applies the deodorant smoothly and to the whole of your under arms. I was pleased to discover that the deodorant did not irritate my skin in any way and the fact that it contains no alcohol has helped with this. For me the deodorant really did work and kept me feeling and smelling fresh all day even after a workout at the gym. The deodorant was very good value for money and so far is proving to be long lasting. As for 24 hours, I wouldnt have a clue as I never go that long without washing but I would certainly purchase Vaseline Active Fresh in the future and would recommend it to anyone.
Summary: A nice deodorant from Vaseline
