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.
