Trial Experience I received the product and was very excited to try it, upon opening the package I read on one of the products that it smelled of almonds. I am allergic to nuts, so I refrained from using that one :( So the other one I tried. I found the smell of the product so strong that I only used it for 1 day, it was all I could smell, and then after showering and trying to wash it off, I got out of the shower and could still smell it.
After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving? didnt use it for the 2 weeks :(
Trial Experience I was excited to receive this product. I use Dove anti-perspirants almost exclusively because I find that they are gentle on my skin. Unfortunately I was disappointed in this product. It was just as gentle on my skin as the other Dove products I have used but I had to stop using it. I usually use scented anti-perspirants so I was quite dismayed when the perfume in this one was so overpowering that I couldn't use it after the first day. It irritated my allergies and as someone who is sensitive to others who have even stronger reactions to scents I couldn't continue exposing the public to the perfume if it was already bothering me.
After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving? Unfortunately due to the perfumes I wasn't able to use it for the full two weeks.
Scent Used I tried both scents and they were both too perfumed for my liking.
Trial Experience I absolutely LOVED both of the scents that were sent to me! I also found the product went on very cleanly and clear -didn't have to worry about those nasty deodorant stains on my clothes. I also loved that it did it's job in keeping me dry for 24 hours- no need to reapply! It made me feel very confident and was put to the test the day it was 24 degrees here in March.. I started the day wearing a big bulky sweater and had no opportunity to change as I was at work.. thankfully I was able to stay dry! YAY!!
After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving? I have to say... because I was paying close attention and watching for a change, I believe I did notice a slight change in the discolouration under my arms, but I can't say for certain if I would have noticed, had I not been watching closely... there was still quite a bit of discolouration. I'm hoping with continued use beyond the 2 week period I will be able to notice more of a colour change.
Scent Used I used the skin renew product. Loved the scent.. not over-powering, just right for my liking.
Trial Experience My trial experience was great! I simply adore this product and will continue using it after my trials are over. They left my skin silky smooth and I felt fresh and smelt good all day. I was supprise of the feeling when I put it on the first morning and no marks on my shirt - it's was wonderful. I think it's the first time an anti-perspirant make me feel refreshed all day even after a hard day at work.
After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving? Even after two weeks of using the product, my skin feels and looks great! No discolorations or marks caused by shaving
Scent Used I tried Skin Renew (violet, lilac, rose, vanilla) one week and Sheer Touch (citrus-y almond and coconut milk) and also in clinical-strength the other week. I felt like the smell of the Skin Renew smelled longer than the Sheer Touch but seriously - I LOVE the scent of both of them!!!
Trial Experience At first I was a little apprehensive because the scent was not as strong as other anti-perspirants that I've used in the past. However, after wearing it all day, I smelled fresh and clean even after a busy day of chasing after a 2 year old!
After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving? I noticed a definite change, and now I'm wondering how it would work on the discoloration on my knees and ankles!
Trial Experience i recieved the product and began using it right away. i really didn't care for the smell of either one but preferred the sheer tone. firstly the scent was so over powering that it bothered me all day i had to take a shower, and i could still smell it. i waited about two days and tried again, it was better after that, but still didn't care for the smell. we had some warm weather here and had a chance to put it to the test doing some gardening. overall it worked very well for odor protection but didn't work very well keeping me dry, but i have yet to find a deodorant that keeps me dry under intense physical activity. if you are not sensitive to strong scents, i would recomend it. it did what it said it would do for the discolouration but they need to work on the scents.
After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving? i did notice a slight difference in my underarm discolouration. i also noticed they were much smoother and my underarm skin was softer.
Scent Used i used the sheer tone scent, i really didn't care for either scent as they were way too strong. i use scented deodorant normally but i found this one really bothered me.
Trial Experience I received the sample and picked the skin renew scent. It has a light clean smell which was very appealing. Ths product does carry aluminum in it, as lately I have been seeking non aluminum formulas instead. It would be better if it was more organic and did not have aluminum listed in the ingredients. It seemed to work well but like all antiperspirants that I use, over time it failed to block smells and sweat. I may be an anomaly as most antiperspirants don't work for me.
After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving? Underarms are soft not dry, but would have minor flakes, maybe from me putting on a lot just to make sure it works.
Scent Used I picked renew as the scent to try as it smelled like a clean shower.
Trial Experience The first few days of trying Dove ClearTone took some getting used to. The texture of the anti-perspirant was a lot smoother/softer than my normal brand and it felt really soft going on. Not quite a wet feeling, but sort of like putting body lotion on your underarms. I assume that's due to the extra moisturizing in the product. It did dry fairly quickly though and i didn't notice any stickiness or wetness at all. I kept checking my underarms daily to see how well it was working in terms of reducing that lovely yellow tinge. I'd say after the first five days, it was definitely reduced. Antiperspirant held up well through my sweat sessions at the gym, which I was glad. I was a bit concerned that it might not work as well as some of the clinical strength products I've tried, but I was definitely pleasantly surprised by the sweat-stopping power. One thing I wasn't so happy with? The scents. While it was pleasant enough in the tube, it was very strong. A couple people commented on it (in a nice way- as in, I like your perfume), but i found it a bit embarrassing. Plus I work in a scent-free office.
After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving? I confess that in winter, i shave less than in the summer, so my arms weren't too bad when i started the trial. However, looking at my underarms now, they seem like the normal pasty white of my skin with only a very slight hint of yellow to them. I'd be interested in taking another try of this product in the summer when I am shaving and swimming every day. Although i would definitely look for a scent free/ less intense scent.
Scent Used i tried the sheer tone and the skin renew (i was hoping one of the scents would be milder). They were both pleasant enough, but i found them quite strong for an antiperspirant.
Trial Experience I really liked the scent of the anti-antiperspirant and I found the protection lasted all day long. My only complaint is that I wear a lot of black and white clothing and I was a bit scared to test and see if it would stain my clothes or not. So every other day or so I had to use my regular black and white protection anti-antiperspirant. I would buy that product again.
After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving? I did notice that my underarms were more hydrated, although I do not suffer from any serious discoloration to begin with. So I would have to say that I noticed a minimal change. I would suggest this product for people with more noticeable discoloration.
