BPGP: The Search for Spray Anti-Perspirant
Jul 14, 2015
Since I started my externship, I’m back to walking to work. (Parking is so expensive.) And when the weather hits the triple-digits, I need more protection from sweat and body odor than my underarm deodorant can offer alone. My solution spray-on anti-perspirant.
The Dove spray is much lighter than the Nivea, and disappears easily into skin. Just remember to apply it before your moisturizer or it’s basically worthless. I also didn’t notice any flaking or buildup, which was a definite improvement. But I had one major issue that I couldn’t get past, the fragrance.
The standard scent is jasmine, which I loathe and clashed with my perfume. They also make it in cucumber and green tea scent but that was just as obnoxious. The only fragrance that didn’t make me want to gag was the pomegranate and verbena. But I still kept wondering why they just can’t make one that’s fragrance free.
Turns out that they do…for men. Of course.
The Men + Care unscented spray is perfect. It lasts 48-hours, and has a little bit of moisturizer so it won’t dry out my skin. It also doesn’t clog my pores, which is great. So once again, the solution to my sweat and body odor woes is a men’s product. Shocker.
