I truly didn’t think I would like this product. I am obsessed with smelling good. To the point that I wear layers upon layers of scents. I have different scented lotions for my feet, hands and body. Next I layer a body spray on top, and then a perfume. The kicker is deodorant. I obsessively re-apply deodorant every day. I carry around a stick with me so I can put more on throughout the day because I have some strange fear that I am not going to smell good.
Now that you think I am totally insane, you get an idea of how important smelling good is to me. When it comes to deodorant I have tried EVERY kind and have only found one that really seems to work for me.
At Fashion Week in Toronto a couple weeks ago, Dove was lovely enough to give away free samples of their new Dry Spray Antiperspirant. I took one look at it and started to think about who I could give it to. I was so sure it wouldn’t work for me that I would give it to someone else who could give it a try.
I somehow ended up with three bottles (ok I know how I ended up with three, I acted like I didn’t have a sample three times!), and I decided to give one a whirl.
The can said to shake well, and then spray 15 cm away from the armpit. The first thing that hit me was the smell! It smelled really good! After spraying it on my armpits were instantly dry so I could put my clothes on witout worrying about drying time, or white marks on my clothing. When it was time to go out I packed the dry spray and my regular deodorant in my purse and went on with my day.
Two hours later I did the smell test. Casually I checked my armpits and I still smelled the spray, and I still smelled good! A fluke? I was sure it was because I tend to sweat, so I checked again soon after. I still didn’t smell bad. How was this possible? I always needed to re-apply deodorant after a few hours – I had been doing this since I was 16, so this was hard for me to accept. I know, I seem dramatic at this point of the post, but as I mentioned I take smelling good very seriously!
I made it to the end of the day without another application of the dry spray, or deodorant. The whole thing seemed like a minor beauty product miracle.
The spray went on dry, smelled really good, lasted all day, and didn’t leave any white spots on my clothes under my underarms. I couldn’t believe how well it worked.
Now I am left hoarding three awesome bottles of Dove’s Dry Spray Antiperspirant all to myself, and a nagging habit of thinking I need to apply more deodorant every couple of hours which I keep trying to shake off because those days are over.
Amazing product – I can’t say enough about it!
