I may be adventurous and willing to try new things, especially when it comes to fashion but there are a few things I am hesitant to play around with. One of those being my antiperspirant. My lifestyle is crazy busy and when my days consists of long hours of meetings, photo shoots, events and sometimes multiple workouts, I can’t leave that to chance. For as long as I can remember, I have used the same deodorant and while I didn’t have major issues when it came to protecting me against sweat, I did however find the collection of white residue under my arms and traces of deodorant on my clothes super annoying.
If you were to rummage through my bathroom cabinets, you will find a ton of personal care products from the Dove family. Everything from hair care, body washes and their beauty bars…all but their antiperspirant until now. For the last month I’ve been testing out the brand’s newest technology, a dry spray deodorant. I will admit, I was hesitant to try it at first based on my preconceived notions on non-stick deodorants, but figured if I love all of Dove’s other products, there’s a high probability I could love this too. Dove’s Dry Spray Antiperspirant is simply just that. A spray that goes on instantly dry – not to be confused with regular aerosol deodorants on the market that go on wet and can irritate delicate underarm skin. This revolutionary product is the first antiperspirant spray that contains 1/4 moisturizers. A welcomed feature for me as I’ve noticed that area can become dry from excessive shaving. Not only do each of the four variants smell heavenly, but somehow the Dove team figured out a way for this spray to provide 48 hour protection.
Using it is easy. First, shake the can well before each use and hold it approximately 15 cm’s from your underarm. Spray for 2 seconds – that’s it! So here’s the skinny…I literally put Dove’s dry spray through the ringer. It survived my crazy hectic workdays and long training runs. My underarms are frequently on display when I work out and during photo shoots so I was thrilled to not have any deodorant residue visible, especially showing up in photos – something that has happened a few times in the past. Dove was not kidding about the extended protection. I come home at the end of the day still feeling as fresh and dry as I did when I left in the morning. Dove Dry Spray is available now in four scents; Beauty, Revive, Cool Essentials and Original (the jasmine, freesia and water lily notes in the Beauty scent is my fave!) and can be found at most major food and drug retailers nationwide for around $5.99.
