For the last week, I have been trying out the new Dove Pure Anti-perspirant Deodorant, courtesy of Nuffnang Australia. I was sent both the aerosol and the roll-on, but since I have been using roll-ons for as long as I can remember, that is what I have been trying out for the past week. I have changed a lot of my personal care/cosmetic products to more natural versions, but "natural deodorants" just haven't cut it for me. While I wouldn't call this product "all-natural" like a deodorant crystal (which is just a tad to hippy for me), the Dove Pure deodorant is the perfect compromise for me. It has been totally effective at keeping me dry, even on a day that lasted from 7am in the morning, to 3am the following morning, while not containing any nasties such as parabens, fragrance, colouring and alcohol.
Dove Pure was easy to apply, dried quickly, and left no sticky feeling. The lack of fragrance was a bit disconcerting to start with, but I actually started to appreciate it after a few days, since the lack of added perfumes meant that a) it didn't clash with my perfume, and b) there was absolutely no stinging, even when applied straight after shaving. I also loved that the deodorant left no white marks on my clothing, especially important now that I am wearing a lot more black!
All in all, this was a definite winner for me, and I will absolutely be purchasing it again when this one runs out.
