Who is excited for Summer?
Yes , I know its only February , but I really am excited for the sun to come back. Dissapointed the snow did not come at Xmas ,I now hope it stays away and we get some rays. (Mainly because my family will be moving soon and the last time we moved it was icey and a nightmare ).
The product we all need (unless you have some amazing glands ), is Anti - perspirant deodorant. Now I have to admit I do not sweat unless I have been running around in the hot summer sun with my little ones or I am on my menstrual cycle but I think it is now habbit to apply every morning after a nice shower even in the coldest of weathers.
For the past year I have mainly used the Dove Roll on underarm balm . I think I preferred it to the spray because usually when shaving underarms, then spraying an icey cold blast of scent on them, irritates and feels sensitive. I also find you get more from a roll on (meaning it lasts longer).
I never look for the sensitive, invisible dry, collection scents in my choice , I simply grab the original , ordinary deodorant and do not think about unless of course it comes in a lovely gift set which we all receive at special occasions .
Dove have brought out the new compressed tins now and I am curious
Dove claim that their Compressed range lasts just as long as previous 150ml Dove deodorants and to be honest with only 25ml difference it is not a huge difference to me and certainly does not make me want to buy it any more or less than the ordinary tins.
The branding is clear as are all Dove products and the clean white with green and blue contrasts look just as the previous products do. Simple and straight to the point information telling you what it is, what it does and the short description on how they think it has that extra to other leading brands.
This new ‘compressed’ deodorant is proven to last just as long as the regular 150ml can. In addition, the new look aerosols use 25% less aluminium and, due to the smaller size, they are easier to transport resulting in 35% fewer lorries on the roads. The only con I have about the packaging is that terrible blue cap that is shaped rounded , making it hard to remove if your hands are wet or unable to grip well.
Dove - 48hr protection Anti- Perspirant Deodorant .
I have always liked the scent of Dove , the fresh linen smell leaves you feeling clean and fresh . It is a lovely feminine smell which lightly lingers all day without the overpowering scent of the usual talc powder you would get form other brands.
The price is always great with Dove and can be bought for a reasonable price in most stores and currently in Boots they are only £1.83 . Dove Compressed is most definately affordable for everyone .
We always have this perception on ''Bigger is better'', and I think the Dove compressed proves us all wrong. It makes more sense to me that when using the Normal aerosol ,we tend to use more and feel more on our skin when spraying.The can is releasing more pressure which means we are using more gas than product and compressing the product into a smaller tin leaving less space for gas pressure is definately better for us (we get more product on our skin) and for the ozone (less gases released).
Using the Product:-
I have found in fact this compressed Dove product has had a drastic change to my thoughts on aerosols.
When using aerosols, I find that cold sudden blast on a sensitive underarm over whelming but the New Dove deodorant has none of that. The scent is gently dispursed from the can and gently settles into my skin. It does not leave that powdery mark on my skin or clothes and I feel fresh all day . Having no alcohol
and contains 1/4 moisturising milk makes it gentle on your underarms.
Overall I love the new product and have definately been converted to the friendlier aerosol.
Have you tried this product, will you be making a purchase soon?
