I am obsessed with the smell of green tea. It’s no surprise that I wish I could smell like it too. When I found the Dove cucumber & green tea scented deodorant at Chemist Warehouse the other day, I went bonkers. Took a few pics of it on the store shelf too.
The only thing that was difficult for me, was deciding between the spray or the roll-on. But I personally prefer roll-on deodorants. Aerosols burn me!
So according to the packaging, it lasts 48 h. For me, it lasts more like… 24 h. I’m the type to sweat a lot. I was pleased to find that after running on the treadmill for an hour with the deodorant, I wasn’t as sweaty from my pits as before.
This deodorant works well as any other deodorant to be honest. But I do like the conical shape! It makes gripping easier for me.
It doesn’t have any green tea extract (or cucumber) in it. As you can see from the ingredients list, there is “fragrance” added to it, which I can only assume is the green tea and cucumber scent. So don’t expect any green tea health benefits on your armpits hahaa.
Final thoughts: as a deodorant that happens to also be a moisturises, this is really good.
Like most of the Dove deodorants, application to the pits isn’t as wet as other deodorants. The scent is a really refreshing and everlasting one. I wasn’t so sure about the cucumber and green tea combination, but I am digging this scent! Maybe I should have both these ingredients in a smoothie or dessert one day. Maybe they’ll taste as good together as they smell together?
I probably look like a loon smiling while I smell my pits
