Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I much prefer a cream deodorant to a roll-on and this one combines the best qualities of both. It's got a nice soft texture but doesn't feel at all wet or sticky going on and leaves your skin feeling quite moisturised (but not sweaty). The cucumber and green tea fragrance is also really nice - it's quite strong going on but soon soaks in and isn't so noticeable, but even straight out of the tube it smells lovely. Seems to be quite effective as a deodorant even after being on all day, too.

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.

It explains on the box: "Who is Dove Maximum Protection for? It is for women who want maximum wetness protection."

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.

Well it really does work. I even tested it by only applying the stuff to half my armpit, and when I perspired, only half of my armpit was wet and the other half stayed dry! I'm not sure how healthy this is though, to completely block sweating from the armpit... but a leaflet that came with the product explained that the company had been testing their products and researching it for a few decades and can ultimately assure us all that using this antiperspirant is not at all detrimental to health.

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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I usually use deodorants by Nivea or Vaseline, as my skin is dry and sensitive, so can burn, breakout and/or itch with load of various products. However I don't feel very confident when it comes to either brand's protection levels, so I tend to carry the deodorants around with to freshen up at various points throughout the day. I've now found a deodorant that offers greater protection AND is still non-irritating on my skin; Dove's Maximum Protection range doesn't need 'freshening' up - I'll apply it in the morning and it will last me the entire day. Such a little thing as not constantly carrying deodorant around, has done great things for m confidence.

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...

This is a nice, fresh smelling antiperspirant. Normally I stick to the original version as I am never sure about using different fragrances with my sensitive skin. However, I have been pleased with this version and there hasn't been any reaction with my skin. As normal these maximum protection creams are great with keeping you dry and fresh but you do need to watch out for white marks on your clothes.
