Doing Drugstore: Dove Ultimate Clear Cool Essentials Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant

Ever since Dove branched out from its old-school White Beauty Bar, I've been really impressed by the brand's hair and skincare offerings. Its shampoos, conditioners, and body washes are both gentle and gentle on the pocketbook.

So when I saw that brand was now in the deodorant business, I had to try the Dove Ultimate Clear Cool Essentials Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant ($4.49). I will definitely be buying this cucumber-scented deodorant again; to find out why,



I have a weakness for cucumber scents, and I'm always on the lookout for a good translucent deodorant to wear with sleeveless tops. In both these regards, Dove succeeds. I thought cucumber in a deodorant might be weird, but it's actually a very unobtrusive scent that simply smells clean, unlike fragrances like baby powder, which can be overpowering.

The stick goes on to my skin almost entirely clear, and unlike some other transparent deodorants, it has no sticky texture. But this best thing about Dove Ultimate Clear is its anti-sweat protection. You know how with some deodorants, you want to reapply between daytime and night? Never with this stuff. Even at the gym, when the rest of me is sweaty, this stuff keeps my underarms dry. I'd also recommend it for people with sensitive skin, as I've never had any problems with irritation. If you've tried it, tell me what you think.

This is what I use and I've had no irritation problems, which I usually had with other brands, love the smell.

I love Dove deoderant, (I've been using it for years!) but I've found that it tends to stain my white shirts worse than any other brand. I swapped it out for Secret, but I'm thinking about changing back, even though it stains. It just works so much better and makes my armpits soft!

I use this one too!!! I love it. I know secret never told on me but I will never use anything else. I use the Cool Essentials Body Wash & Lotion by Dove as part of my everydat routine. I secretly think my fiancee has been using it(lotion)!!!

The cucumber soap is awesome. I started using it in conjunction with my face-washing regimen and I noticed a huge difference in my skin. I just started using the Dove Smooth Cashmere deodorant, and it's like HEAVEN. I chased after my fiance yesterday until he smelled my armpits. He, too, agreed that my armpits smelled awesome even though it was 7pm and I'd been wearing it all day.

I love this! I have been using it for awhile and I haven't found a single thing about it that I don't like. I have never gotten white marks from it though.

I have used Dove deoderant before, but it always leaves white residue...I might have to try this one, as long as it doesn't stay sticky...
