I’m really excited to share with you my full range review of Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant!
If I’m being completely honest, there have been times in my recent past where I’ve attempted to replace my deodorant for a 100% natural alternative. The only
minor major problem I had is that it NEVER WORKED! Well actually, I take that back. If I sat inside my air conditioned home and didn’t do anything that caused me to perspire, it was fine. BUT [and it’s a big but], I live in hot and humid South Florida where sometimes just walking outside your front door will make you want to turn right back inside and hop in the shower.
In addition to the high temps, I do try to be as active as possible whether it’s going for a run outside, taking a Pilates class, or doing one of my favorite at home workouts. And, if that isn’t reason enough to become Sweaty Betty, I’m pretty sure my hormones post baby have messed me up quite a bit and I just have to face the facts that I’m definitely a more sweaty person than I was in my younger years. Sigh.
So now that I’ve probably shared way too much information with you, let’s switch gears and get into WHY I use Dove.
Dove is a brand that I’ve been using for as long as I can remember. And, I’m not just talking about their deodorant. Pretty sure every product they’ve made since the time I’ve been born has been a staple in my bathroom and shower. They make products that smell good, feel good, and most of all, products that do what they claim to do. Hence it’s #1 Dermatologist Recommended brand rating in the US, Canada and France.
Furthermore, Dove is a brand that celebrates real women and real beauty. In fact, their “Social Mission is to ensure that the next generation grows up enjoying a positive relationship with the way they look and to help them reach their full potential in life.” In a world full of insecurities, anxiety, self doubt, and pressure, we need more companies like this to advocate for girls of all ages, but most especially ones who are young and impressionable.
Why Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant?
Because it works! Dove’s skin-moisturizing antiperspirant helps keep you cool, calm and collected for up to 48 hours. 48 hours people!!
It’s formula is 100% alcohol [ethanol] free! Dove cares about what you put onto your skin. As a result, their deodorant sticks make your underarms feel smooth and soft by containing 1/4 moisturizers and NutriumMoisture that can help reduce irritation after shaving. They’re more than just an antiperspirant.
It smells delicious! Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant is available in a variety of eighteen signature fragrances and benefits to meet the wide range of women’s needs. I’ve had the honor of trying all eighteen, and there’s not one that I didn’t like. Before sharing my favorite with you, I just want to highlight some of the different options they offer:
This antiperspirant deodorant cares for your delicate underarm skin, and helps to reduce dark marks caused by shaving. It’s formulated with calendula which helps restore skin to its natural tone. It’s available in three fragrances: Skin Renew, Sheer Touch, and Pink Rosa.
This variant is unscented and contains a hypo-allergenic formula for those of us with super sensitive skin.
All of the eighteen deodorant sticks, including the ones mentioned above are considered to be part of the Advanced Care line. The remaining fragrances are: Rebalance, Nourished Beauty, Original Clean, Shea Butter, Lavender Fresh, Soothing Chamomile, Powder Soft, Caring Coconut, Beauty Finish, Revive, Restore, Cool Essentials, Clear Finish, and Sheer Fresh.
And now, my favorite… [drum roll please]
With a light coconut scent and jasmine floral notes, this is the fragrance I found myself constantly gravitating to. While all of the varieties offered odor and wetness protection, I have a bit of an obsession with coconut oil and coconut water, so I suppose this isn’t much of a surprise.
Because deodorant is an essential beauty product that you use every single day, you should expect more and try Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant if you haven’t already. Experience firsthand the various benefits, formulations and fragrances to suit your unique preferences. You won’t regret it!
