The Body Shop DeoDry Deodorant

Hi everyone! Long time no post :-)

Anyway, here's a product review for all of you.  It's The Body Shop's new DeoDry Dry Effect Deodorant.  It retails for Php550 locally but they had a launching sale for Php 350.  There are 3 variants (green, blue and pink) and 2 forms (stick and roll-on). I got the green one in Cool & Zesty Stick as it was the only one available in stick form at Gateway.







I don't usually buy expensive deodorants and I need an anti-perspirant but I was sucked into getting this coz the SA said it has volcanic ash that keeps the UA dry hence the Deo Dry Effect.  It smells citrusy but a bit strong for me.  Since it's paraben free and made of more natural ingredients, the sucker that I am bought it.

The first time I used it, I did feel refreshed and dry.  However, that didn't last very long.  After a few hours I felt sweaty so I put my regular powder deo anti-perspirant on top of it.  There was also a bit of an itchy feeling on both my underarms.  I used it for 2 more days when I noticed my underarms become a bit darker, ugh! Probably got irritated by some ingredients in it hence the itchy feeling. And to think I had already achieved my whiter underarms from my IPL and those whitening deos I used.  I felt so mad about what happened so I gave the deo away, ha ha.  Now I have to get my underarms whiter again.   Regarding it's anti-perspirant properties? Major fail plus the stick form really does feel sticky.  I can't comment on the Roll-on form as I haven't used that.


Lesson learned. I really regret buying this expensive deo from The Body Shop :-(

the only deos that i saw from them are crystal deos. actually im allergic to crystal/alum deos. Instead of whitening my underarms it makes it darker & i get allergic reactions from it.
*sigh*

Sad to hear that. I can recommend the organic deo from Human Heart Nature. It says that it has Chitosan that has antibacterial properties and can assist in lightening the skin. So, every morning i use this, happily my armpits just remain dry throughout the day. Then before bedtime i rub the Sunflower Oil from Human Heart Nature. Been doing this for 3 weeks now and i see positive results naman. No more chicken skin and the upper part of my right armpit (which was really dark before) lightened up a bit.
