Name and shame time! This comes at a good time, since I'm in an ornery mood and need something to unleash on. Behold the individual in question.
Some of the impressively vigilant of you might remember that I reviewed the Rexona equivalent of these way way back, and while I liked their performance, I didn't love the smell. I have the exact opposite problem with this - it smells delicious (this ones cucumber and green tea) but it does. not. work.
Firstly it balls up when you roll it onto your skin - and since the lotion itself is sort of closer to a wax than a liquid, it drags on the skin and sort of accidentally exfoliates it. So your armpits are covered in weird tiny balls of deoderant and red and irritated. Good work, doods. The only slightly redeeming thing about this is that it smells nice. Not quite enough to save it, but there you go.
And then to cap off the experience, I wore this one to the gym - and sweated more in the underarm area than I usually would. For serious, Dove? I know we've had some good times with the foaming cleanser, but that doesn't excuse future wrongs. Back to the Rexona, I think.
