Win a Dove Hamper

Cuddles with Niamh

I remember when I was growing up that I was told that men sweat, ballerinas perspire and women glow.  The reality is that I have been known to sweat and perspire through my glow.

Dove asked me to road-test their new Pure range of anti-perspirant deodorants for a week and they want me to give you a Dove Hamper too (more on that later).

Now, as I’m in my mid-40s I have started feeling like it’s mid-summer every night, around 3am as I wake up sweating  glowing and by morning I will notice that I might be rather stinky whiffy.

The Dove Pure range has 48 hour protection. I will admit that I shower once every 24 hours so I’ve not tried to test the full extent of its protection, but I will let you know that even after a hot night I’m not offending myself my partner or my daughter (who, like other 7 year olds, will happily tell me if I smell less than fresh).

Speaking of my partner, during the road test, each time after I went to the gym, I came home and insisted that he smell my armpits (charming, I know, but sometimes you need an independent opinion), and he has let me know that the Dove Pure has done its job and that I just smell like me.

One of the other criteria that I judge an anti-perspirant on is whether it leaves white marks on my black clothes.  I’m really happy to report that it doesn’t.   Must be because it doesn’t contain any colourants either.


I like that it doesn’t have any parabens (nasty), fragrance (I like to wear a perfume that I choose and don’t want a second scent interfering with the perfume of the day), colourants (no white marks on clothes) or alcohol (drying for your skin and can be irritating) and contains ¼ moisturising cream so that my skin is soft, even after daily shaving.

  • With so much pollution around us and what our body absorbs I want to try something pure, to help me control my armpit smellys (only occassionally) and feel confident I’m putting something pure on my skin and take care By moisturising my pits. I like to look after my body.

  • I would love to win the Dove Hamper. I do not want to use parabens on my body and this deodrant sounds like it is a great product. I use Dove bar soap…so gentle and so natural. My dermatologist recommends it.

  • This would be perfect for the young teenager in my home who is just starting to go through puberty, a little bit of body odour that needs attention!

  • Having finished my radiotherapy, I started using dove . I have no redness, it feels smooth and there is no more irratation. Thankyou for a chance.

  • If you want to put the Dove deoderants under test conditions….my exercise/ hobby / passion is swing dancing!! If the big band is laying out the rhythms, then I’m swinging it out on the floor and it can get pretty hot pretty fast! Essential items in any swing dancers kit bag (along with several fresh shirts and good dance shoes) is a deoderant that works lol! And when you get home….a nice hot (or cold, depending on how good the men leading you were) shower and shampoo to wash off the sweat!

    P.S. Coincidentally, I’m attending a swing dance convention next week and my swing dance kit bag supplies could definitely use a top up 🙂


  • I would love to try the new Dove Pure, as I have finally started going to the gym and I don’t want to be smelly at the gym…eeww! If Dita Von Tease can work out without sweating, so can I! 😉

  • As I have fairly sensitive skin and perfumes can give me headaches I am always on the lookout for fragrance free products that are as pure as possible. it would be great to try Dove especially as you say it really does last. I find other 48 hr products struggle to last 24.

  • I am so glad you reviewed this product, I am also over 40 and all the products I have used before just don’t work anymore and I am getting a rather large collection in my cupboard from “try this one”. Dove sounds perfect.

  • Dove Pure would be a great assistance to my morning ritual. For one thing, the name conjures up a peaceful day with gentle ingredients. I’ve tried other Dove products and like them all especially the Dove Conditioning Serum which gives a shine to my frizzy hair in every season.

  • Wow. Wouldn’t be nice to win something so special as Dove. I am all for natural products and Dove delivers. It was the soap my partner could use during Radiation. That speaks volumes for its purity
    Thanks Dove xxx

  • Looks like you have to be a resident of Australia for the promotion. Bummer, I’m in the US. Thanks for the 2 videos I just could not stop laughing at the second one!!!!!

  • I thought the saying was “horses sweat, men perspire and ladies glow”. Either way, I do all three of those things, although my glow is usually achieved by the use of highlighters!

    I’d love to try the new Dove Pure because I live in Sydney with very confused seasons, am in and out of air conditioned environments or the fresh air and I’d like a deodorant that can keep up with me and my busy lifestyle!

  • Dove sounds fab, I love wearing black and dark colours through the winter but hate the white marks on my clothes.

  • I’m already a dedicated Dove deodorant user so it’s more about always wanting to try new versions of products I consistently use as I’m assuming companies are seeking improvement!! When will the product be readily available in the marketplace Imogen?

  • Dove sounds like exactly what I’m needing. A natural product line that is soft on the skin, perfect for people with sensitive skin. Think the hamper would also allow us to try new products that we haven’t bought yet.

  • I’d like to make sure that DOVE – a deodorant NOT laden with petrochemical derivatives – can work even better than my current one! 😀

  • Hi, I would really love to try Dove Pure, I love the idea of being able to wear whatever colour I like and not have the telltale signs of my deodorant show on my clothes. It is something we all use every day and it should just not be that hard to find a good product. Cheers.

  • I am so glad you mentioned it has no parabens because I have been thinking about this lately and one of our biggest lymph nodes is under our armpits and by using these deodorants that have parabens surely it can’t be good?

    That is why I would to win a Dove Hamper!

    Goota say Dove is scoring some big ticks on my board lately, they are at the forefront of innovation and their marketing campaigns are brilliant!
