I picked up a can of Vaseline Active Fresh 48 hour protection Pro Derma for a £1 while shopping in Wilko's a couple of weeks ago. I have been using the deodorant each morning after my shower for around two weeks now and I am sad to say I am distinctly unimpressed.
I am not sure what scent I was expecting from a can of Active Fresh deodorant, maybe a scent of Green Tea and Aloe Vera with a hint of Melon or some such nonsense, I certainly was not expecting the scent of fly spray combined with a hint of baby powder.
I am not exaggerating when I say this deodorant has nothing whatsoever going for it, not only is it lacking in scent but it does not even manage to give me an hours protection from sweaty underarms. I would not dare try and push the boundaries of the stated 48 hours. I would probably look and smell like a swamp.
Even the can is pretty basic looking; the decoration is kept to a minimum with just a pale green shadow image of a stop watch. The lid is of the pull off variety, the kind I usually lose, underneath is a basic press to spray button. The amount of anti-perspirant released is good and distributes evenly on the skin without leaving wetness or white patches.
I am not sure what happened with my deodorant, maybe I got one from a bad batch. I will use it all up as I don't like things to go to waste and I will definitely think twice before choosing a Vaseline deodorant again.
Sorry I can't say anything nice about you Vaseline Active Fresh its one star from me.
I first came across this product a few months ago whilst queing up in Superdrug. It was on special offer in one of the clearance baskets...2x 150ml bottles for 99p! (I have seen them for about £2 usually in supermarkets) Fantastic, I thought, I'll just keep one in my bag for when im at work.
However, after using it later that day, I soon realised that this was going to be my regular deodrant as it was just so good! It kept me dry and smelling clean even in 30 degree heat and whilst running around at work. Also, even when wearing a tight fitting shirt there were no...ahem...sweat marks.
The fragrance is quite strong, but it does fade quite quickly once it has been applied. Often, if i apply it and then leave the room, i can still smell it when i return a few mins later. It is however, a light and very fresh smell, and not at all sickly or sweet as some other anti-perspirants can be.
Another plus side is that it doesnt sting after you have recently shaved! This is probably because it contains 0% alcohol.
My only downside to this product is that it is not "anti-white-marks" and if you put on a black top straight after can end up with a few white streaks. However, these are easily brushed off.
I have had these 2 cans for about 5 weeks and have only just started the second can. I generally apply my anti-perspirant 2 or 3 times a day as im often at work long hours, and then out in the evenings too. I have found that these little cans are much more economical then some of the larger sized, different brands that i have tried before.
Overall, this is a great product and I will be buying it again!
I managed to lose my bottle of deodorant between bathroom and bedroom after the shower so had to borrow my daughters deodorant. My own deodorant seems to have been swallowed by the same black hole that the socks disappear into so I've been using this one for a few days now and I'm not impressed by the results.
This is the aloe fresh deodorant. It's available in an 150ml bottle and I paid the pricely sum of £1 for it in the local chemist but it usually sells for £1.99 elsewhere. It is the aloe fresh variety and it boasts that it contains pro derma. I've no idea what pro derma actually is but I've got a feeling that it is a word made up by vaseline to mean nice to your skin.
The deodorant has a nice fresh smell, it reminds me a bit of cucumbers. A quick spray into my pits and I think I'm set for the day. Unfortunately the 24 hour protection promised did not happen and by mid afternoon I had that horrible damp feeling in my armpits and was paranoid that I smelled bad. Worse still, by the time I got home the sweat had caused the deodorant to go all gritty so now I had damp gritty armpits.
I don't sweat particularly badly so it's disappointing that this deodorant didn't live up to its promised 24 hour protection on an average spring day. If I had been exercising then no doubt I would have ended up stinking by the end of the day. This deodorant is frequently on special offer but I suggest that you ignore it and buy something that will work.
Obviously, as I am a male I am reviewing the 'For Men' version of the product, which comes in a much more masculine blue colour!
I have used only this and the Nivea Anti-Perspirant for a while now, as I find these two to be the market leaders. Add this to the fact that they look very similar and you soon get the idea of why I pick these cans up when shopping!
Vaseline Intensive Care For Men comes in a blue spherical can, with a little blue plastic cap which usually gets lost within a few days!
I usually buy the 150ml version, as this is the smallest and therefore cheaper (although it would probably be cheaper in the long run to buy the bigger cans!) It costs between £1.50 and £2, depending where I buy it from - although in my local chemists it is nearly £3 a can - prices can vary greatly! This will tend to last me 2-3 weeks, depending on usage and as I am quite a heavy user I think this is quite good value.
The fragrance is stronger than some anti-perspirants, although not as tacky or overpowering as the Right Guard or similar sporty anti-perspirants. This is a much more sophisticated smell, more subtle and the fragrance comes out throughout the day.
I play quite a lot of sport, can put this on before playing and despite sweating profusely during activity, the only smell is that of the Parfums from the deodorant! A pleasant surprise for all concerned!
One problem I have found is that if you do not dry completely after showering then the anti-perspirant can actually form clumps of powder and become irritable during the day - although this is not really a problem as I now dry more thoroughly.
I have been using the Vaseline spray for nearly 2 years now, and could not recommend it more highly.
Thanks for reading
I'm not sure whats going on here! I've had a bad experience with a product and came on to write about it only to notice that all reviewers have rated this product so highly!
Firstly I must point out I have used this product as photographed before, but Christmas Eve I decided to buy myself a new bottle as not to run out or anything and like everyone else I know I panic bought even though I got bout 5 bottles already!
This Vaseline Intensive care Aloe Fresh with Pro Derma was on offer in my local Tesco's for 99p so I grabbed a bottle! Bargain I thought lol
Now what is confusing for me is that my bottle is not as photographed. I have used the one that's on the photo and I've looked around for this bottle on numerous websites and I cant find it. So I'm not sure if this is the new packaging, an old bottle or whats going on! However on a bit of mooching about this is the same product it's just that the packaging is different. However my opinion is so different to every body else who's rated it, its really made me wonder!
So The Packaging Of My Bottle....
It's 150ml recyclable aerosol tin. White with a green sash pattern, Navy push on lid white sprayer. On the front says clearly what the product is and on the back gives warnings and tells us what it promises....
What It Promises....
Keeps you dry all day
Contains Pro Derma- a unique blend of ingredients to protect the underarm skin & make it less prone to irritation.
Alcohol free - Non sting formula, even immediately after shaving.
Light, fresh fragrance.
Contains skin soothing Aloe Vera.
Firstly I don't like the smell. It's a really fake Aloe Smell that is sickly sweet. Though once it calms down a bit under your arms the smell is fresh but it has to lose that harshness to smell ok. After an hour or so the smell disappears completely. I did apply it straight after shaving my pits and it didn't sting and that was one good thing about it (if the only thing!)
The biggest problem this product has is that it goes white! I mean white! Like you've doused your armpits with talcum powder! I never noticed at first. I'm not used to going white in this day and age so I wasn't watching for it. So I sprayed on my usual amount, did a couple of jobs ad put my black jumper on. Again I didn't notice anything till I went downstairs and mum said what is that all over ya top and I looked down and on the hem of my jumper it had gone completely white. Looking at my jumper after the armpits of it was white and I had to get changed! It did come off my top with a wet cloth and it washes out great but I was livid!
As for did the deodorant it did do the job. It did keep me dry and clean but I wouldn't say it kept me feeling fresh as such. I would say my armpits felt soft and smooth but not any different to any other deodorant I use.
All in I see this as 99p wasted, I after this, wouldn't buy any of them again after this experience. I have used the deodorants before but I wouldn't risk it again I may as well stick with my usual, trusted, soft and gentle and I prefer the smell lol Men or women could use this as it doesn't smell neither feminine or masculine and that's just another reason to dislike it, after all I am a girly girl!
While I'm sure probably all of you will be familiar with Vaseline Petroleum Jelly and will have used it not all of you may have heard of Vaseline's Intensive care anti Perspirant. There's a version for men in a blue can and one for women in a white can. I am reviewing the mens deodorant as I am a male.
You can buy this Vaseline anti perspirant deodorant from all the major outlets like Boots, Superdrug and Wilkinson and Supermarkets like Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsburys and Asda. You can find this deodorant for a very reasonable price which is around and often under £2 for a 150ml bottle.
My first encounter with Vaseline Anti Perspirant was when I was in Boots a couple of years ago and there was an offer on Vaseline Deodorants. Intrigued I wnet over to the display and took the cap off the tester and sprayed a little. I was quite pleasantly suprised by the smell and thankful that it's not the same smell as the Jelly which I find horrible. So I bought a couple of these on a buy one get on free offer.
I recently bought another can of this deodorant and was reminded of the light refreshing scent that is incredibly long lasting. Well a little bit now about this product from the makers. It contains Aloe Vera and ProDerma which is clinically proven to help protect the skin from too much sweat and odour.
What you get with Vaseline Intensivce care Anti Perspirant Spray is a light airy fragrance that keeps you smelling fresh even in the most sweaty of conditions. This makes it great for sports or a workout at the gym.
This is one of the best deodorants on the market and will give you a lot of protection against odour.
I have played Football and Basketball whilst wearing this Vaseline Intensive Care Anti-Perspirant Spray and was still smelling fine due to the superb odour protection this gives you.
If you havent tried this deodorant then next time you are looking for a deodorant try a tester of this Vaseline Intensive Care Anti-Perspirant Spray.
Now that I have started using the green Active Fresh Vaseline Intensive Care Anti-Perspirant deodorant I don’t like using anything else. I buy 150ml for £1.45 in my local Superdrug Store and think it is well worth the money. It depends how much you use but I think a can of it lasts long enough and is not a rip off at all like some other Anti-Perspirants. I put it on once a day and then have a bath or shower at night and re-apply in the morning. This keeps me smelling fresh and stops that awful B.O. that some people have. As far as I’m concerned this is the best Anti-Perspirant that you can get but if you put too much or too little it won’t do its proper job. This deodorant: · Is clinically proven to keep you unbeatably dry. · Contains ProDerma tm – a unique blend of ingredients that helps to protect the underarm skin and make it less prone to irritation. · Is alcohol free – Non-sting formula, even immediately after shaving. · Is dermatologically tested. · And has a light, fresh fragrance. Well that’s what it says on the can and I would agree with every point apart from I haven’t ever used it straight after shaving so don’t know if it stings or not. The Ingredients for this deodorant are: Butane, Isobutane, Propane, Cyclomethicone, Aluminum, Chlorohydrate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Parfum, Helianthus Annuus, BHT, Cholesterol, Lecithin, Borago Officinalis, Retinyl Palmitate. If you have any questions or comments you can phone free on 0800591720 or write to Consumer Bureau, Lever Fabergé Ltd., Freepost, Admail 1000, LONDONS SW1A 2XX. Ireland call 01850404060 (local call) So unless you already have a deodorant that you use regularly and are happy with I would suggest this one.
If there is one thing I truly believe, it's that you should always smell ok. There is nothing worse than greeting somebody or being in the same room as someone who stinks. I should know as stinky people come into the showroom all of the time and sometimes all the windows and doors have to be opened as well as using a can of air freshener to get rid of the smell. I couldn't imagine how someone can get that bad, as I am paranoid against it. Like most clean people, I shower every day and wear smellies. I certainly would hate to make a bad impression on a person because I smelt bad. My current favourite deodorant is Vaseline Intensive Care Anti-Perspirant Deodorant. Why do I love it? Read on. PACKAGING The packaging for this product is very nice. It is white, with navy and peach detail, which is very feminine and nice to look at. Because its so simple, it stands out, as most deodorant companies are now trying to use bright purples, greens and blues to try and stand out on the shelves. The bottle has simple to read instructions and other information on it, although most of us should know how to use deodorant! WHERE TO BUY FROM You can buy this deodorant from many places; Superdrug, Boots, Local shops, Supermarkets, Beauty Stores, etc. I personally bought mine from Tescos. PRICE This product costs £2.39 from Tescos. It is about the average price for aerosol deodorant sprays. SMELL This deodorant has a fresh talcum powder smell, it is really nice but not overpowering, so you can wear your usual body sprays and perfumes on top. ADVANTAGES The product is anti-perspirant so it stops you from sweating. This is great because nothing is worse than a tight top and sweaty pitts. It also contains ProDerma, which is a blend of ingredients that protects the underarm skin and makes it less prone to irritation. The product contains no alcohol, so it wont sting, even straight after shaving, which
believe me, is awful. This product smells lovely and leaves no white marks too, which saves frustration when putting on nice black clothes. DISADVANTAGES The only disadvantage I can think of is that because it is an aerosol can, it will run out quite quickly, especially if you use loads like me. I don't mind this though, as I can always throw some in with my weekly shop. OVERALL I would definitely recommend this product. It is my current favourite deodorant. It keeps my arms dry, it smells nice and it looks nice too. Excellent value for money.
On my last outing to Boots I just could not resist picking up Vaseline’s Intensive Care Deodorant Spray. Our household has always been an avid user of Vaseline products especially the Petroleum Jelly, which I had written an opinion on sometime ago. Products bearing the Vaseline brand are synonymous with quality and are manufactured by the giant Lever Faberge Group. It was on this basis that I had not qualms whatsoever in trying out this Deodorant Spray. This is not to say that I am in any way disappointed or disenchanted with my usual Nivea Roll-On Deodorant for Men. Vaseline Deodorant is available in aerosol and roll on versions and the type that I picked up was the aerosol type. Just some information for you, which is not totally related to the product, is that from a survey conducted using 600,000 men it has been learnt that 80% of men prefer the aerosol type of deodorant. Using the same numbers with women the figures are a lot more balanced with 50% preferring aerosols, 43.9% roll-ons and the balance 6.1% preferring creams, sticks and gels. Vaseline Deodorant is packed in attractive white coloured bottles with a transparent cap. Each bottle contains 150ml of content and I picked it up at just under £ 2.00 at Boots. However after checking with my usual online supplier Pharmacy2u I have found out they sell is at £ 1.69, which provides you with a useful saving of 30p on a bottle. Vaseline contains all the normal ingredients but also contains two others not normally found in a deodorant. These are Aloe Vera and Proderma. Aloe Vera as many of you may be aware is an herb native to Africa. It is known as “The lily of the desert”, “The plant of immortality” and “The Medicine Plant”. This is all due to its tremendous healing and soothing properties. It also helps to prevent itching, which is probably one of the major reasons why it has been included. Proderma is also an important ingredient that provided disinfecting and healing properties. Another plus point with Vaseline is that it does not contain any alcohol and therefore there is absolutely no burning sensation when applied. I have just recently started using it and from what I have seen I am impressed. The fragrance is a very soothing one and in no way overpowering. The link up with Faberge is evident in the quality of the fragrance. It seems to have excellent lasting powers, which is difficult to find in many deodorants nowadays. I personally am not one that suffers from to much body odour but I am absolutely sure that for those who do this would be a very ideal product that would have a very positive effect. I for one have now been left with a difficult decision when my current bottle runs out. Do I buy another one or do I buy my usual Nivea Roll-On. I still haven’t decided. In any case whatever one I do end up buying I will know that I am getting a very high quality and excellent product.
I've written here before about IPS (itchy pit syndrome) and if you've ever suffered from it you'll know exactly how irritating and embarrassing it can be, a violent and prolonged itching sensation in the armpit, for which there is no cure or painkiller. If you succumb to the inevitable and give yourself a good and satisfyingly violent scratch, you'll just make it ten times worse. In my case it was brought on by stress, the daily trip each morning to take the darling dear heart dave27-ettes to school. The violent and boundless hatred between them and the constant bitching, when contained within the tiny confines of the dave27-mobile, always served to bring on the sort of fit that made one appear quite subhuman in habit. Things got so bad that I had to abandon my former brand of choice, Right Guard, and find something which was more gentle on my sensitive skin! Yes, you read me right ... the most masculine and fearsome man in the Grim North of England had to get some ladylike treatment just to survive ... my fearful skeleton has fled the cupboard and is shaking its tush all down the Pennine Way. Well, I did actually manage to find a product which could deal with my problem, and so the dave27 relationship with Vaseline Intensive Care Anti-Perspirant Deodorant was born. I was pretty nervous to begin with. My childhood problems (I had been a right little stench machine) had only been adequately countered when I started using Right Guard and I was very apprehensive about whether Vaseline Intensive Care would be effective enough when Mrs D discovered it. I needn't have worried, however, because my old pal VIC was extremely tough on the bacteria that caused a problem at the same time as being thoroughly gentle on my baby sensitive bits. Success at last... VIC comes in a slim, navy blue 150 ml canister and apparently comes with skin caring ProDerma which is clinically proven (whatever that means).
Well, actually, according to the small print, it is clinically proven to keep you unbeatably dry, contains ProDerma, a unique blend of ingredients that helps to protect the underarm skin and make it less prone to irritation. It is alcohol free (shame) and is dermatologically tested. The ingredients are butane, isobutane, propane, cyclomethicone, aluminium chlorohydrate, disteardimonium hectorite, parfum, helianthus annuus, BHT, cholesterol, lecithin, borago officinalis and retinyl palmitate (how extremely reassuring...) Shame I don't have a clue what any of that means. VIC is manufactured by Elida Faberge Ltd and is freely available. We get it from Tesco and these days I swear by it, rather than at it, as was the case with Right Guard. It is very effective in controlling unpleasant smells, but has never caused me any irritation, even though they warn you not to use it on broken skin. Oh, and you should also not spray it on a naked flame, though I can't understand why a fire would need an anti perspirant. Still I suppose it does get quite sweaty in a furnace after being in there all day. In fact, the only moan I have is that it does tend to leave a powdery white deposit in your pits if you don't shake it before spraying and often leaves a sticky residue behind, like most other anti-perspirants. Oh well, nobody's perfect, apart from dave27. Night all....
Body Odour, B.O. or Bodge as my colleagues and I call it, is an affliction that seems to affect some people much more than others. For example, my workplace, is an open-plan office that has about 70 people working on it in sub-divided teams of 6 or 7 people. Luckily, my team colleagues are all relatively clean people (at least in the physical sense but not in their thoughts and behaviours, Mr Lloyd) but some of my other colleagues who I interact with on a daily basis have this particularly disgusting smell they carry with them. These people are not people that I am picking on because of an occasional stress or heat-related end-of-the day case of bodge, people who absolutely stink day-in day-out, morning, afternoon or evening. Why? I feel these people are not looking after their bodies well-enough, it gets to the stage where you hold your breath if you have to walk past them or see them coming towards you, god help the poor people that have to sit next to them. You may think I am being a little harsh here but I do feel very strongly about this issue as it honestly sometimes gives me a headache if I have to smell it for too long ? I am dreading the summer months with hot temperatures on their way. I am most grateful for the air-conditioning at my workplace, if that didn?t exist in the building I would be seriously considering my position at the company. A kept quiet about the whole issue for weeks but finally decided to discuss the matter with my team and ask if they had experienced the putrid stench that I have had so many stifled grievances with. They quickly agreed with me and were all glad the issue had been brought because they to were suffering in silence. Still, nothing has been said to the guilty few who give me stench-related migraines at work, I can?t believe they cannot smell themselves because everyone else can from 20feet away, it really is a joke. I am hoping therefore that they may by chance read this opinion on D
ooyoo and possibly realise what they are doing to us. So I am going to tell them about Vaseline Intensive Care Deodourant for Men. It is by far the best deodourant I have ever used and really does keep you dry for a long time, fighting against the evil that is bodge. It cost around £1.99 and I have been using it for about 3 years now and I have had several people confirm with me that I do not get bodge in any form. It is should last around 3 months if used twice daily on the armpits. Don?t hold it too close though otherwise you get the classic white marks on the armpit which will then show on darker clothing, holding it around 9 inches away from the pit is the correct distance, I feel. It has a very pleasant smell that is delicate but powerful at the same time and it will reduce sweating in certain areas. I recommend this product to anyone with bodge or anyone without because they don?t seem to know they have bodge in the first place. If regular bathing and use of this product does not work, seek medical help. God help us all.
I started using Vaseline Intensive Care Anti-perspirant deodorant (aerosol) after it was recommended to me by a friend. I have found no other deodorant as effective since. It is non stinging. It leaves no white marks. It is non- sticky. It has a pleasant scent. And, it contains ProDerma, though I am not entirely sure what that it! - other than it is supposed to protect more again skin irritations. The deodorant comes in four "flavours" to my my knowledge (although one is mens), and I have found "Fresh Balance" (the peach one) to have the most attractive scent, although it shouldn't really matter which kind you choose, as they all do the same job effectively fragrance or not. The cheapest place to buy it in Sheffield, as was mentioned in a previous review, is at Cole Brothers (John Lewis partnership), where it is approximately £1.29 a can (£1.99 everywhere else!). The new lids to the cans are perhaps the only mistake with the product, as they are plastic and prone to cracking (and the mens blue plastic lids look rather like police car sirens!) Other than that: It's effective. It smells nice. It has attractive packaging. It does the job. New one out called "Aloe Fresh", accompanies the new aloe body lotion launched by Vaseline.
