Dove Maximum Protection Deodorant

Hello everyone!
I've been umming and ahhing for a couple of days now about whether to do a review on this or not, but in the end I figured, we all use doedorant so why not?!
Since my last review was pretty negative, I wanted to do a positive one today, about something that I am loving.

I had seen a couple of reviews on some different blogs about this, and thought it sounded quite interesting. It claims to be "scientifically proven to protect against wetness". Before I begin the review properly, I should add that I am not an overly sweaty person etc etc, but I do have quite an active lifestyle and I do quite a bit of excercise so naturally I want a deodorant that will keep me smelling fresh all day.

I have the pomegranate and lemon scent, but there are about 3 to choose from. It doesn't smell very fruity, but it is a really nice scent.

Although it looks like a roll-on, this is in fact a cream deodorant - when you twist the bottom, the cream comes out through little holes in the top of the bottle (I forgot to take a picture of this sorry), so to me it feels more hygeinic than a roll-on. The cream contains Dove 1/4 moisturising cream, which claims to care for the skin.

The odd thing about this deodorant compared to your average one is that to gain the best results, you are supposed to apply it before you go to bed, and it should last throughout the next day, even through a shower. I was sceptical about this at first, but I tried it and I can honestly say, it works! Even after a shower, you can still smell the fragrance.

A good thing about this being a cream deodorant is that it dries so quickly when you apply it. I used to use a Mitchum roll-on deodorant, and even though I did like it, it took an absolute age for it to dry, resulting in marks on my clothes! This dries almost instantly when you apply it, and I have not noticed one single deodorant mark since I started using this.

With regards to the "anti-wetness" claim, this is also true. It keeps me dry through the entire day, even through a gym session, and I have not once felt the need to reapply during the day. I have been using this for 4 weeks now and I am still really enjoying it. I apply it every night before bed, and wake up smelling fresh as a daisy :)

I appreciate that this may not be everyone's cup of tea, and some people may not want to read about a deodorant, but I thought this may be of interest to some :)

The only downside of this is the price. It retails for £5.30 in Boots and Superdrug, maybe a bit less in the supermarkets. Having said this, I do think it's worth the money as it does what it says it does and is very long-lasting. I would definately recommend this to a friend :)

Has anyone tried this?
