Absolutely the only thing I can complain about is the confusing packaging. It is the usual sort of plastic dispenser with a dial on the bottom, with the cream itself having to be dialed up to push through holes in the plastic cover. The directions on the back advise "turn clockwise until product appears" whilst the illustrations show an anticlockwise arrow. The product is so far down the tube that it takes awhile to dial up to the top, but turn the dial anticlockwise and you will get there eventually. And hopefully feel less ridiculous than I did at being stumped by my deodorant.
This seems to suggest that it won't work for men. But it does...
I got this Dove antiperspirant for my partner who uses it in the mornings rather than before bedtime. She says it works fine but doesn't really want to elaborate.
So I creamed some off (so to speak) and tried it for myself.
I have very sensitive armpits and can never use stick-type deodorants as they cause me acute soreness. I can only comfortably use spray-on deodorants of the powdery sort, like this: Dove Men+ Care Extra Fresh 24 Hour Anti-Perspirant 150ml. In very hot weather, I shave my armpits which makes deodorant much more effective.
I applied this Dove Max' very sparingly. Although it is opaque, it completely disappears when thoroughly rubbed in -just like moisturising cream. So any reports of its leaving white marks is probably due to over-application or not properly rubbing it in.
I experienced no discomfort whilst applying this and going to sleep with it on was fine; my armpits didn't feel sticky, sore or odd.
The following morning I gave it a thorough soapy washing and went to work without applying anything else.
It was an extremely hot day and I was very busy. After work I marched around the corner and had a couple of stiff ones in the bar.
My armpits were still curiously dry. It was a slightly odd sensation as they felt 'naturally' dry. That is, I coudn't detect any layer of deodorant but my armpits were still completely dry and fresh-smelling.Read more ›
Now the product would be perfect if only it didn't make my armpits itch after using it for more than a day. I find that if I use it once every 2 or 3 days, my armpits are fine, but if I use it daily, my armpits start to itch and develop mild eczema rashes. I also think that the product instructions to use 2 clicks per armpit is too excessive for me. I need only 1 click per armpit. Product says to discontinue use if rash or irritation develops, but it's the best antiperspirant I've used and I might just continue to use it every other day if that stops the itching and rashes. Until I find another product that works just as well and doesn't cause irritation when used daily.
This is a cream deodorant, so is a bit pricier then roll-ons or sprays, but it really does seem to last longer then the alternatives. Also - the cucumber and green tea scent is probably my favourite in the range, as it really does wake me up in the morning, as it is a fresh, zest and energising combination.
I've been converted to deodorant creams now and definitely won't be going back...

Very efficient - better than other similarly-priced products, as it was an anti-perspirant rather than just a deodorant that I wanted. Neatly and attractively designedPublished on 17 Nov. 2013 by B. Davies
